    Would you mind giving us some specs, and close-ups of the rig itself? :)

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    VERY cool. I want that computer. :)
    What kind of CPU is it? By 7700K, you mean an i7/i9 Intel core, right?
    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks everyone. I use to do some track days in a MINI Cooper S I use to have but had to stop due to neck problems with the g forces and the weight of my helmet. I've had three neck operations. So it's the next best thing to driving on the track.

    Here's a link to a Pro Race in iRacing which is the service I use.


    They are much faster than me. The best of the best. The top Pro Series F1 driver for the 12 race season (best 8 races) wins $10,000 for the Championship.
    The tracks are laser scanned down to 1 mm, they are so accurate that real life racers use them to practice on.

    You see that lady walking across the paths of them getting ready to start? Also, look how many kids are cheating on the start line already! :#

    I NEVER did like those TOE pedals! I tried them and thought, who thinks these are a good idea?

    I believe this cat's name is Dan Quinn.

    It reminds me of the various Wack-A-Mole-Game attempts Quinn has tried to fix the Atlanta Falcons not realizing how one thing can affect another.

    If you have a favorite team that is not doing well, maybe you can give him a name.

    I NEVER did like those TOE pedals! I tried them and thought, who thinks these are a good idea?

    I use clip-in pedals on my road bikes. Steady state riding, they keep your feed in the optimum position over the long haul. They do require a bit of technique to clip out, however, not good if something sudden happens. Yep, I've fallen because I couldn't get my foot clipped out in time!
    tqefy1x4hrdd.png
    I've tried but abandoned clip-in pedals on my off road bikes. Too many instantaneous changes in terrain on the trails. I now use BMX style platform pedals with threaded studs on them for grip. Kinda a compromise, but it allows for my feet to fall off the pedals and brace from falling if needed.
