    Since luchian was so helpful sorting my problem, I shall introduce myself here!

    Alex, 19 years, from Sweden. The only interesteting fact about me has to be that I used to race, first karts for 10 years then a year of Formula Ford, which was great fun, had some really good success in single seaters aswell but $$ ruled me out of it. Real shame. Now i'm just an average kid, building a OSW wheel atm. Right now having an emotional breakdown due to Top Gears last episode was just shown. It hurts deep down...

    Well, thats me. If anyone would be interested :)

    Hi there,
    Lots of interesting things, thank you for sharing ! Maybe some photos from the racing years ? :)

    But another thing attracted my attention: the OSW ! I am "studying" one as well. Could we maybe open a specific thread about it ? Could be useful for sharing information and who know maybe group order ? :D

    In any case, welcome !

    I could try to find some old pictures, no probs :)
    About osw, I am insanely lazy, all pictures that are uploaded are uploaded to SIM RACERS page on facebook, so I can't guarantee I will be uploading pictures here, but I will maybe make i try if people are interested. :)

    For sure you have one photo in one of your cars, please share. :rolleyes:

    Also tell us about your feeling as pilot... wich is your favorite track on real life?

    I imagine in the start of a race and I think that would happen very afraid, adrenaline eliminates fears, or it is normal to be scared occasionally.

    sorry to eard you loose your wheel.

    Hello Chaps.

    Quick report. Fav. track is Padborg Park in denemark and Anderstorp (the old f1 track). Mainly Padborg Park due to great success, 5/6 race wins on that track. Pixelchaser, it certainly is, great fun to drive those cars. :)

    aaaand a picture.

    Niice ! Thanks for sharing :). Must've been tons of fun.

    I'd happily help out with that. It's a pretty shitty track but it has some challenging high speed sweeper and some challenging braking points.

    About OSW. My servo motor arrived today! (I will make my best to keep you updated since you seem to be a nice bunch of people :) )

    I tried with the background, :lol:.

    Wow!!! you are young but you are full of surprises.

    It's not a simple task to make an OSW, I'm afraid I only can watch and learn. :lol:
