I have been into Nascar since the late 70's I will concede. But I did take a bit of a break from watching racing after my first divorce in 88-89. I do remember something along those line I just figured they never made it to the track. But I was wrong.   :drinking-29:

Just barely made the line in tonight's second mission with a failing engine. Twas damn close.

I love how the rocket is lighting up the pilot and the face of the bombs.

Also, you can jettison the rocket tubes, full or empty!

I thought of 6x500 bombs in the 38 is too much...  the 38 is awesome....


Have you noticed the gun tube whistle in the P-51?

On the 38, one important point. When you taxi, the top of the canopy will close. However, that does not mean that the canopy is fully closed. I couldn't figure out why I was getting so much buffeting, till I realized the window was down.. :idiot-0011: Hit RAlt C to roll up the windows and fully close the canopy, problem solved...DOH! Thanks Wood!

Love that 38!

I saw that on the sturmovik forums. Interesting.

I was reading an article about racetracks and they mentioned the one in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. You guys who are into racing might remember it, it used to host Indycar, NASCAR Busch and Craftsman Truck series races amongst others. It got bought and its races moved elsewhere after 2004, guess the owners refused to allow it to be used for racing anymore since it competed with other nearby tracks they owned. Now its kind of an overgrown wreck, sad.

I have heard of it, there is another track in Pocono Pennsylvania called the tricky triangle. They are doing something very odd this year. They are running both the Pocono races simultaneously 2 weeks in a row. Just my two cents worth or is it down to one cent these days  :lol

Yeah, the proximity to Pocono and Dover was related to why they shut it down. Its a pity, what they need is more unique racetracks and fewer copycat 1.5 milers.

S~

 The brother I was talking about last night lives so close to Pocono Raceway you can hear the races from his house. It's  2.5 mile tri oval with a pretty interesting layout. Each turn is a duplicate, as much as a turn can be duplicated ( banking and radius), of one of the turns on three other well known tracks.       

At that awkward age where your brain has gone from " Probably shouldn't say that" to
"What the hell, let's see what happens"?  Me too.

Used to love running Pocono in the old Papyrus NASCAR Racing sims. Was fun when they used to shift there.

They still shift there. Pocono is called the tricky triangle. BB is right each corner is a copy from another race track and all three are different. Makes for good racing. Longest straight away in NASCAR.
unfortunate for your brother they dont offer the experience at Pocono but Dover they do.

I had to share this with ya'll.
Yes, that car is illegally parked in the middle of the lane half in a crosswalk.
And yes, that is a Handicap placard hanging in the window.
And... yes, that is a Handicap parking spot sitting open 15 feet behind them.
This is the type of people I have to live with everyday and people wonder why I want to move.
Oh and that car set there for over 30 minutes.
