Talking Online race sim

Hey Guys just a little off topic but have any of you guys seen the online racing sim www.simraceway.com ?? Its not RC but its a lot of fun!
Ive tried a few now and this one is pretty bloody cool hey!! The Graphics aren't ultra detailed so most computers will run it with not to many dramas I would think? Still looks great but!!
Its free to race and download, you just pay for any extra cars you want, the cost of them start at .06c and go up from there! Very affordable!! I have just been racing around the new track at Austin Texas that the V8's are going to this year in a Lancia Stratos....... Very cool!!!
Anyway sorry for going off topic but I thought id mention it just in case there are any race sim fans out there!
Hopefully see all you guys this weekend?
Cheers,
Foggy

Thanks Mikey.

I just got my rear Hi Caps for my Avante. To say these aren't cheap would be a under statement .

My Dad had to navigate a German E bay shop . Was very hard to do after one hr on the phone to him in the U.K. In the end he just phoned them.

All done and posted came to $75. Ooooooouch.

Anyway there are 2 more sets on the bay with world wide postage.

Make a offer you never know.

Thumbs up Boondal Egress!!!!!

You are so lucky .

I wanted a Vajra but not at the retail price. So for that price you got it at a steal.

Can't wait to see it Dave. You will be the first to run a Egress at Boondal I say.

Post pic's please.
