      Hey man, thanks for sharing. From one south Floridian to another, I'm a fan. I followed you through the TDI Cup and was rootin' for ya the whole time. DVR'd the race today but won't get to watch it until tomorrow. I've always wanted to get into professional motorsport and I could pick your brain for hours, but I'm sure you get that enough so I'll leave you alone with all that. Thanks again [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Shuffle steering is incorrect, for 99% of situations. It makes it very difficult to be accurate in your placing of the car, if you need to move the wheel beyond the point that shuffling is necessary, you have already messed up badly enough to hurt the lap times. Nearly all corners are within range to of turning without crossing, and once you get used to the quick cross it becomes a non issue. Same thing applies to formula cars especially. For a good example watch long beach in an indy car.
