    First I want to thank Champion Motorsports for allowing me to race here and my buddies from MNRL. I have race this mod before, so I knew the handling. I just needed to find the gearing that was in a perfect spot to take the hill (the jump). I think taking the hill in 4th gear made the difference. Cohn was fast and I think he will be a pain the next race. Miller always is there but sadly he looks like he was kidnapped by aliens before race.

    Please enjoy this video. See ya next race.

    RICMOTECH RealGear Wheel/Paddle upgrade for G-27

    Once upon a time I owned a Momo Red and it's probably still lying around in a box somewhere in the knee wall. However, back in the day, FFB support wasn't what it is today and I eventually purchased a non-FFB ECCI Trackstar 6000. It is a fantastic piece of equipment and has served me well for more than a decade, but it's limited wheel rotation was...well...limiting. Wanting a wheel with at least 900° of rotation and interested in dipping a toe back into FFB arena, I happened to get lucky when David decided to part with his old G-27.

    I've only had the G-27 for a short time, but I'm really enamored with it. I love the added rotation and the more I play with the FFB, the more I like it. However, I'm not totally in love with the dimensions of the actual wheel. At only 270mm, it just felt too small and it is quite a bit smaller than the 320mm Grant wheel on my ECCI. Plus, it simply didn't look the part. This is one of my biggest complaints about most modern FFB offerings. They simply aren't aesthetically pleasing to me and it is what ultimately led me to looking into alternatives.

    Enter Ricmotech and their RealGear G-27 wheel upgrade.

    Most of you know that I've been using ECCI products exclusively for more than a decade. The Trackstar 6000 and pedals are some of the finest made sim racing products ever produced and they are VERY expensive. So, as FFB has become all the rage, this old man has held stead fast in the belief that FFB wasn't necessary. Well, about a week ago I got the hankering to try out some FFB and David had his G27 for sale, so I decided to pony up some cash and check it out. I've only had it working for ...

    I've been eyeing this program for a while now, but finally got the chance to try it out: SCCA Track Night in America.

    The idea is to introduce people to track driving, in a friendly, convenient, and cost-effective atmosphere. I'd say they've got the formula pretty well nailed: weekday afternoon sessions at great tracks, a solid hour of track time, relatively low cost of entry at $150. The beginners get paced laps for the first session, a decent measure of classroom instruction, and two sessions at speed behind the wheel. Spectators and wannabe's can show up for half that ...
