The 410K Hits Celebration Party!

the 410K hitsDear God, what are you people doing with your lives? Another 100,000 hits calls for another celebration party, as surpassed 410,000 Hits and 138,000 Unique Visitors earlier this week! Not bad for a site whose links are forbidden on at least three other message boards, and allegedly have several personal vendettas against multiple different driving games.

The staff (and I use that term loosely, it’s a group of guys joking around on a Teamspeak server) behind has expanded to three people, all of which are licensed race car drivers, and the About page will be changed to reflect that in the coming days. If there’s a certain person you want to answer any Reader Submissions you guys send us in the future, be sure to say who you’d like to answer it!

Our first new Staff Member hails from Aachen, Germany, and is someone we interviewed earlier this yearSev can already be seen answering Reader Submissions and bickering with some of you in the comments, so I guess this is his formal introduction. atyahzzOur second new Staff Member resides in Kelowna, British Columbia, and is our resident Car Setup guru & iRacing shenanigans expertMaple‘s technical knowledge comes from studying a few of Steve Smith’s series of books.

DSC_1495Now for the other two things we need to talk about.

First, the donation button on the right side of the page has been refined. I really don’t agree with donations as a whole – the entire system fares far better when the controls are given to narcissistic YouTube girls in order to exploit guys who are into financial domination – but since our competitors all seem to have implemented some sort of monetary system, we’ll go and do it as well. There are no benefits or perks to donating to us. The button is there primarily for the guys who feel the content on here gave them something fantastic to read while on the shitter at work, and want to say thanks in their own little way.

Second, we still have an anything goes policy in the comments section. No, we will not force you to sign up or create an account. No, we will not make usernames mandatory. No, we will not ban people for obscene or inappropriate comments, as this is the goddamn internet. If you want to habitually spam the same links that prove rFactor 2 is superior to Assetto Corsa, go right ahead. If you want to obsessively comment on how much of a shitcunt I am, that’s your right, and I’ll give you every opportunity to do so.

Just beware that you’ll develop a bit of a reputation, and it probably won’t be a good one.


And yes, we’re aware the reply system is rubbish. Oh well.

Lastly, there are a fair bit of new people to the site, and to bring them up to speed on what aims to achieve, here are our five best articles that you should most definitely read to get yourself up to speed:

  1. The Community Assisted Review of Project CARS – A lengthy post describing the history of Slightly Mad Studios, what lead to the creation of Project CARS, how all contributing WMD members were turned into viral marketers thinking they would get rich off investing in a racing sim, and the inevitable disastrous launch of the game.
  2. The #Gamergate Post – An overview of how a complete lack of ethics turned certain driving game oriented websites into news outlets heavily influenced by marketing tie-in’s and shameless self-promotion. Those who did not conform were hassled by several different developers unwilling to admit their games had various flaws.
  3. Basic Setup Theory – While links to individual car setups will help you rocket to the top of the leaderboard, Maple details exactly what you want to achieve when building a setup for your pretend race car, each time you leave the garage. Maple outlines an overall goal rather than giving you a set of magic numbers.
  4. Blurring the Line with Severin Austerschmidt – A lengthy interview with a Formula Renault 2.0 driver – now staff member Sev – breaks down the differences between sim racing and reality, including the on-track mentality of your online competitors.
  5. The Evolution of Broken iRacing Setups – As a dedicated setup builder for a NASCAR Peak Anti-Freeze Series team, Maple gives an extensive history lesson about the various bugs and exploits seen in iRacing throughout the years; a game which many believe is the pinnacle of modern sim racing.

I think that’s everything on the agenda for today. Nope, nope, we’ve got one more thing. Maple and I will be competing in the TouringProSeries V8 Supercars Championship under Walk Racing using Game Stock Car Extreme. While the liveries and schedule are still TBA, we can assure you we’ve already done some extensive testing with these cars and can’t wait to mix it up with the best online racers in the world. There is nothing like putting your money where your mouth is, and we will proudly display our alternate logo on our pretend Holden Commodores when the league kicks off this fall. Be sure to monitor the TPS Facebook Page so you can tune in and watch us embarrass ourselves fly the flag for during the stream of the race each week!

  1. But why does your livery have the Arabic wrong?

    Those letters should be tied together, except for the alif, the ra, the dal, wow, and of course variants (zayn, dhal) as well.

    What you’ve got is l i k e i f i t y p e d l i k e t h i s


      1. Oh, I see. The real issue is that you’ve typed it backwards, in addition to disconnecting the letters.

        So it’s more s i h t e k i l e t o r w i f i, rather than l i k e t h i s.

        So that’s fun.


  2. damn keep throwing your dirty underwear against the wall and amazed how it sticks. what is more amazing is that other people like watching it stick against the wall.

    ProTip: wash your underwear and get better viewers and hits otherwise it will always be sticky skidmarks


  3. Hey Faggots,

    My name is Chocolate senna, and I hate every single one of you. All of you are fat, retarded back markers who spend every second of their day looking at stupid ass racing lines and braking points. You are everything bad in the world. Honestly, have any of you ever gotten any serious tyre temperature? I mean, I guess it’s fun making fun of people because of your own insecurities, but you all take to a whole new level. This is even worse than jerking off to pictures on project cars

    Don’t be a stranger. Just hit me with your best shot. I’m pretty much perfect. I was captain of the Sega Senna super monaco gp team, and on my carmegeddon team. What sports do you play, other than “jack off to pictures of telemetry”? I also get straight A’s, and have a banging hot girlfriend (She just blew me; Shit was SO cash). You are all faggots who should just kill yourselves. Thanks for listening.

  4. I just noticed that one of the sites linked in your About page is down and the other appears to lack anything of value whatsoever. So, pretty accurate actually.
