Aussie Racing Cars Championships

While hunting around for a league to join which runs during AEST evenings I came across the thread announcing that the Aussie Racing Cars Championships will be running for 13 weeks aligned with iRacing's 2016 Season 4. Sessions run from 8pm - 9pm Thursday nights, which is perfect. There's over 130 people who have shown interest and they'll be running two 60 slot sessions; participation should be very high!

I've put in a few practice sessions and I'm enjoying getting a handle on the Legends car with the setup the league has come up with. I even came up with a fake sponsorship deal with National Pies and whipped up a paint job:

G27 Force Map

I read about the new force feedback forceMap option that was added to iRacing back in May 2016 on Ed Racing.

I was interested in checking it out. The first thing I did was generate graphs of the forceMap.csv file which David Tucker from the iRacing dev team released and the one which Ed created.

David's file:

Ed's file:

!-- image g27-force-map_4.png --!

After looking at these two files and reading through David's posts in the thread I created my own. I doubled the number of data points in order to smooth out the transitions.

My file:

I've run a few practice sessions and races using this forceMap.csv file (save it into your /documents/iRacing folder). Like Ed's summation; I find driving when using my forceMap file I get better feedback as to what is going on with the rear of the car. Feeling when I'm on the edge of traction is a huge improvement. Along with this I get a better idea of weight transfer side to side in the car.

Honestly, it is a big step up.

Simon Sinek: Why Leaders Eat Last

In this in-depth talk, ethnographer and leadership expert Simon Sinek reveals the hidden dynamics that inspire leadership and trust. In biological terms, leaders get the first pick of food and other spoils, but at a cost. When danger is present, the group expects the leader to mitigate all threats even at the expense of their personal well-being. Understanding this deep-seated expectation is the key difference between someone who is just an "authority" versus a true "leader."



The Long War (The Long Earth, #2)

A generation after the events of The Long Earth, mankind has spread across the new worlds opened up by Stepping. Where Joshua and Lobsang once pioneered, now fleets of airships link the stepwise Americas with trade and culture. Mankind is shaping the Long Earth - but in turn the Long Earth is shaping mankind...

Meanwhile the Long Earth is suffused by the song of the trolls, graceful hive-mind humanoids. But the trolls are beginning to react to humanity's thoughtless exploitation... Joshua, now a married man, is summoned by Lobsang to deal with a gathering multiple crisis that threatens to plunge the Long Earth into a war unlike any mankind has waged before.

How McLaren F1 Tech Is Supercharging the World’s Industries

“When we started we were basically three people sitting at a table, wondering how to build this business,” McGrath says. They were trying to answer the question: What would McLaren do if it didn’t make F1 cars? McGrath had a plan, at least in theory. It was a vision that intersected with Hargrove’s simulators and computer models, the telemetry in the race cars and the data design of the prototypes. This is what they could offer to businesses that were traditionally managed retroactively by studying quarterly financial reports—data from the past. McLaren would get them to work with live data, to compete in real time and to simulate the future.
