Topic: A video to explain why I just can't ever get Nickel Fever.

You can make a car fast, you can make a car last, but odds are, you just get the tow truck stuck in the mud.

If it was something about a Jersey Swamp then yes?

Also it has a J.G. Thirlwell Soundtrack, Listen with the sound on. (apparently Youtube doesn't care about good music in videos.)

My tires were slashed
And I almost crashed..
But the Lord had mercy...

My machine she's a dud...
I'm stuck in the mud...
Somewhere in the swamps of Jersey...

Are you sure he was stuck?  I was there and maybe it just seemed like it since the recovery crews were so damn slow.  Track that don't do hot pulls suck for the racers.

I'd tell my driver to put his hands at 9 and 3. He never had a chance of catching that smile

He could have had his hands at 3,9,2,10 and 12 and 6, he wasn’t catching that.

Could you have found a smaller diameter steering wheel?  That thing looks like it came from a video game console!

Not for $90 with the spokes in the right place no.

Also all my “training” is with a Fanatec CSL so that wheel is like an inch BIGGER.

And power steering, power steering is good.

Re: A video to explain why I just can't ever get Nickel Fever.

At MSR last weekend, the track's ramp truck got stuck trying to load up the VW Transporter van just off the back straight. Meanwhile, another VW broke something in the front suspension two corners later and also needed the ramp truck. That double yellow lasted about an hour...
