    Race Injection?
    RR sux, especially the F1 clone....I can't remember much about the camaro though.
    If you have RACE07, you need to get the 2007 F1 mod....it's at RACEDepot and nogrip mod sections of RACE07.

    Totally forgot about mentioning Race Injection haha. I suppose its just Race 07 with all the addons.

    Now if only GT5 could come out on PC. There is rumours as to whether the next GT game will come to not only the PS3/4 but perhaps also the PC. If it's true then I can't wait! If it's not then I still can't wait!

    Me, I get bored of arcade racers:slap:
    There's always problems with physx{naturally} and often steering precision, so I mainly stick to PC sims.

    UH NOPE it was Nascar Racing 2003,Some guys did a Nascar racing 2005 mod and 2007 which is very hard to find ...but simple gooogle search will lead to it them.


    As for Pcars ,yeah right ..I'm a member there since march and lets just say those guys HAVE NO FOCUS ON WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE DOING.They announced they have a license from Lotus (yes Chapman Jr)For 9 cars Yet you read that message board it is "What Cars you want what tracks you want"How abut they just finish what the have and release DLC after........Trust me the Pcars is good but I fear that have no clue as to what Stock cars from 90`s or any other for that fact are.you try to help and get shit thrown in your face just cause they think a 90 stock car is based of the v6 powered BUSCH cars with paint jobs from 86-89......How is that realistic?

    You want a real sim try these
    1,GPL the grand daddy of sims
    2,Nascar Racing 2003
    3,Rfactor1-2
    4,SimRaceway (free to play)http://www.simraceway.com/
    5,Ferrari Virtual Race http://ferrari-virtual-race.en.softonic.com/
    6,I forgot IRacing if you can afford it.

    eh I wouldn't call it an arcade but sort of an in-between leaning towards sim. I must admit the controller customisation is lacking, and also the crash physics suck. But I usually try not to crash anyway.

    I still prefer the PC sims for hardcore simulation though. (LFS and RACE fanboi myself)

    Then let's call it a simcade, but most people on racing forums never call it a sim, and if they do, they're set upon, lol.

    In my experience, it wasn't till GTR2 that sims became decent, and RACE07/GTR EVo further refined the feel and FFB especially.
    I tried the LFS demo and wouldn't give them 99c for it.

    Uh nope, EA did sell "NASCAR 2004." 04 and NASCAR Sim Racing where the last two that EA sold. I have both.

    Problem is: NASCAR 2004 runs on a Windows 7 system but runs in a window.

    NASCAR Sim Racing WILL NOT run on a Windows 7 system.

    Yes they did but we were talking about Nascar 2003 made by papyrus in 2004 EA bought the Nascar rights out from under them and pretty much killed the Nascar games.

    I didn't like TDU2, IMO TDU1 is was better. Never tried Burnout Unbounded... oops! sorry i mean Ridge Racer Unbounded. I read i was good, but to me it's not a Ridge Racer game.

    I got TDU2 on a steam sale. I liked the idea of it. But the handling with the wheel isnt good at all. Turned me off playing it.

    Rfactor?

    Test Drive Unlimited 1 I gave it a chance and thought oh well the next one might be good but it had potential then Test drive Unlimited 2 took all that potential and flushed it right down the toilet, it was worst than 1.

    :rockout: Got ya. I agree, Papyrus was the Sh1t! If they could have continued with the franchise who knows where it would be today. For its time, they were hands down the best of the best.

    I felt the same way, they concentrated on the wrong things.

    thank the DMP league for that,It all happened when some real life driver got out of his race car at Daytona in 04(same year he won the 500)and gave a shout out,this was of course before the dreaded Activision split.games were going for well over $300,all the horny tweeny girls wanting to race with....

    +3 Legends was also good.

    SO what the hell is http://www.iracing.com/ then
    ?

    nope it is before that.
