Free Car or Track from iRacing
« on: July 03, 2009, 07:34:19 am »
i paid for a year of racing and gave iracing another go, but man that f*cking rank solstice is like someone forcing you to drive a honda superdream, for that reason iracing sucks.

the radical that i also bought is much more entertaining and also fun to drive and shows just how good the sim could be, ie. on par with any online sim.

What has honda got to do with the PONTIAC Solstice? What do you mean by that phrase?

Hehe, my brother had a Dream and his mate had a superDream when I was a lad... they thought they were starring in CHIPS :) Mind you, compared to my little Z200 they sort of did look the part.

I had a CB50 when I was 16 - I thought it was the dogs bollocks - bloody thing would struggle to move if I sat on it now!

It was just like this one - same colour and everything!

as Byron pointed out, the Honda Superdream was a motorbike from the 1980's, it was reliable for it's day but it was also very very heavy and underpowered even campared to it 4 stroke rivals and miles behind the air colled X7's and RD's. so in motorbike terms it might be considered dull, slow and boring and given the choice it might be well down a riders list of bikes to ride.

The Solstice imho fits into the honda superdream bracket of sims cars, if it was in any other sim i don't think you'd see it very often, 1 race or even a 10 mins practice in the Solstice and i'm thinking "this sim racing stuff is rubbish", every time i drive the Solstice i hate it even more. Then i rush back to rfactor and the HGT escort or GTL and the alfa GTA.

If the Solstice was a motorbike i wouldn't even waste a match on it.

It looks like I'm one of the very few who actually enjoyed driving the Solstice. Yes, it's not fast, but that doesn't mean the sim is horrible. They simulate a sporty roadcar and do that very well IMO. I have had some great racing in them, if the rookies stay out of your way..
