The 215K Hits Celebration Party – Opening The Floor to the Readers!

215I guess this is a thing that narcissistic YouTube girls do – they throw some sort of a party whenever they hit a “landmark” subscriber or view count number. Since it’s a slow news weekend and there’s literally nothing to report on, we’ll do what we can to keep this off-week interesting for PRC readers and haters alike.

Since starting PretendRaceCars.net in January 2015 almost as a joke, we’ve managed to get 215,000 hits among 81,400 unique visitors, and our terrible blog that nobody should ever trust managed to land on PC Gamer. And N4G. And PowerGamer. And Gameranx. EmptyBox has made a video shilling for us even though he doesn’t actually like us. We can monitor all of these instances in real time as well. WordPress is cool like that.

a12121At the moment, our numbers are slightly more successful than both Ke$ha’s recent university tour, and the Canadian leg of Lights’ Little Machines tour. More people visited PretendRaceCars.net on June 29th than attended IndyCar’s MAVTV 500 in Fontana! We’re moving on up!

So let’s do something crazy.

GSC 2015-04-13 23-13-35-51We’re going to open the floor to all readers, haters, and trolls of PRC. In the comments section below, ask us any question you’d like. Hell, ask multiple questions. Anything goes and no subject is off topic. Chris and I will answer as many as we can in an article on Sunday night after the Sprint Cup race at Daytona.

Go hard, and here’s to the future!

  1. I have tight butthole, but I managed to get a stick of dynamite up there. If I clench my butthole hard enough, do you think I can explode?

  2. I’ll be the first serious one I guess.

    If there was 1 thing you could change about the Brazilian/GSCE V8 Stock Car, aesthetics/performance/etc, what would that be ?.

    Also any track suggestions for SC first-timers ?, they look cool and sound awesome, but I have a habit of swapping the front & rear quite often on corner exit, even with your ‘super setup’ for gMotor games.

    Any plans of pursuing that iRacing ban ?, or just giving that up and moving on to something else ?

    I’ll probably add more as I think of them.

  7. What do you guys think about drifting? Do you follow Formula D or D1 or whatever? Would you like to try it out in RL?

  8. Why do you guys use fake names on your blogs when, on your podcasts, you’ve constantly slipped up and said your real names on several occasions? On the other hand, at other times you’ll show screenshots where your real names (I think..?) are exposed to the public.

    I honestly can’t tell if you guys are trying to hide your identities or not. What’s the deal?

    And when are you guys doing another podcast?

  9. Okay, here’s one:

    What real-life vehicles are you basing your FFB settings off of? I’ve seen you mention that you go for realistic feeling comparable to the actual vehicles, which sounds to be a very, very light form of feedback.

    Just wanted to mention that most cars with a decent steering rack have a great deal of feedback. A good set of tires and you can feel every tiny little seam in the road, scrubbing, etc.

    Some cars I’ve driven, hardly any feedback through the wheel at all. Usually those same cars have very isolated on-off spongy brakes with no feel.

    Some cars feel like muted, isolated trash from the factory, wallowing over the road. 99% of the cars represented in sims do not feel that way at all.

    IDK, just rambling a bit. I keep seeing the ‘real cars don’t have appreciable wheel feedback anyways’ mentioned off-hand all over the internet and I don’t know why people have this misunderstanding.

  10. You wrote an article a few weeks back on how a more expensive driving wheel and pedals won’t make you faster. Do you feel that there are any benefits of any kind to a higher-end setup?
