How much does it cost to set up iRacing?
On a month-to-month basis, iRacing costs $13.
Pay for a year up-front and that drops to $110, or $199 for two years.
However, with all the excitement at the moment, iRacing is currently running a 50% discount, meaning two years is just $99.50 for new subscribers..
What do you need for a racing simulator?
The simulator hardware. Along with the PC and monitor, you will also need some other hardware to get the most out of your simulator. A steering wheel and pedals are a basic requirement, but there is a lot more to it than that.
What is a side bite?
Specialty. Dentistry. Crossbite is a form of malocclusion where a tooth (or teeth) has a more buccal or lingual position (that is, the tooth is either closer to the cheek or to the tongue) than its corresponding antagonist tooth in the upper or lower dental arch.
How do you calculate bite in a race car?
Subtracting the amount of weight supported by the RR tire from the LR tire’s weight, we arrive at a number and call that the amount of bite in the car, i.e., “100 pounds of bite or left rear.”
Why do they put tape on the grill in Nascar?
Tape is used as an aerodynamic tool in NASCAR, as well as a repair device. If you look at pictures of the cars, you’ll see the grille openings on the front. Teams will cover these with tape to improve aerodynamics and increase speed.
What is car rake angle?
Rake refers to the car altitude created by raising rear ride height in relation to front ride height, effectively setting the car up with an upward slope front-to-rear.
How do you make a Nascar tighter?
The suspension springs can be adjusted to compensate for tightness or looseness in the car during turns (called wedge adjustment, which you can read about here). You can use a ratchet a turn that long jackscrew attached to the suspension in either direction to make a car looser or tighter.
What is bite in a race car?
In oval racing, bite is simply the difference in the weights of the 2 rear wheels. Typically the more bite, the more grip in the rear on exit.
What is a high rake f1 car?
“Rake” refers to a Formula 1 car having a higher ground clearance in the rear compared to the front. “High rake philosophy” means that the car was designed to be run with a much higher ride height in the rear axle than in the front axle.
What does it mean when a Nascar is tight?
Tight: Also known as “understeer.” A car is said to be tight if the front wheels lose traction before the rear wheels do. A tight race car doesn’t seem able to steer sharply enough through the turns.
How does rake affect car handling?
1) When you change rake, you are moving a VERY SMALL amount of weight. That has almost no effect on handling. 2) When you change ride height (rake) you are moving the roll center and CG. If you started at the ideal point for front and rear grip, changing the roll center reduces grip on that end.
How much is an iRacing simulator?
With iRacing you need to purchase the licenses to use individual tracks. Each track outside of the base package costs a one-time fee of $11.95 or $14.95 depending on the track size and the time which it was scanned. Tracks initially cost $14.95 and are demoted to $11.95 after a long period of time. Cars cost $11.95.
