    As older Aussies would know the correct answer is that the Falcon is an awesome classic and became the iconic Bathurst Touring Car of its day ;)

    I get the same when i add some addition to my sim. i tell my son that everyone needs something that they can be passionate about and its good to have a hobby. though i know secretly the difference between passion and obsession. ;)

    ASA Stock car, very similar to the Late Model Asphalt in iRacing. My lap times are even similar to my real life times at my home track, only thing is I had to put very unrealistic settings on the iRacing car to make it handle properly.

    I'm the happy owner of a 2002 BMW E46 325i in Midnight Opal Blue. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures to show at the moment, and it's a bit dirty due to all the bush-fire stuff going on in East Gippsland currently. The Germans sure know how to build a quality automobile, it's a real pleasure to drive :)

Shipped the coral pink Holden EK Special Sedan to UK but someone crossed my palm with silver years back, when I was short of funds, so no longer in my possession.

    I've had a lot of really fun cars, starting with a Nissan 350Z. That was upgraded to a BMW E92 M3. That was replaced with a Lexus RCF.

    I took the RCF to a track day and caught the bug. RCF left and I got a Camaro ZL1 1LE. God that car was a beast, but then I needed to do door to door racing, so the Camaro was replaced by the Spec Miata in my profile pic. I'd be a very rich man if not for cars lol. Vid from Camaro below, we were dealing with some wildfires and that is all of the haze in the air.

    Hi,

    I have a Toyota Supra Mk3, nearly my daily, and I often go to trackdays with it ;)

    Looks like real good fun!
    Is it possible for you to share your unrealistic setup? It would be fun to try out some kind of «realistic» driving in a sim.

    Also what kind of Sim gear do you use?

    Hi there, I own a cute full-optional Nissan Micra bright red. ATM I don't have any pictures of it. It is a comfortable city car and a pleasure to drive :)

    I'm Soooo! jealous.
    I would love to get into that. Where i'm at you only have drag strips and a a few dirt tracks.

    Besides my daily drivers (Suburban, Jetta TDI, I drive a 2001 Firebird WS6 (Pontiac) , I say drive, but its currently parked, since I have the motor halfway torn down due to a bad lifter. So I'm planning to do a complete rebuild once I get the time and parts together.
