Avinash, these are amazing. Why don't you ask the mods to move this to the international motorsport section? Most of the racing fans are over there and they'll love this!

The simulator racing. now this was fun. paid $5 and went and raced. did not do a good job. ended up mid field. actually got rear ended and spun
Must tell. the simulators are stunning. 3 screens in front giving a panoramic view. with all controls as actuals. it was worth the time spent.

suspension and brake components are kept on these trolleys. one can pick up the barcode scanner and scan the code on each of these parts to get complete information about it.I was very impressed.

I'll be waiting to read something on my favourite - The Craftsman tool; official tools used in Nascar racing. Did you find any information about them over there? Appreciate to share them. Tks.

saar.sorry but there was nothing I could collect about craftsman tools. I'm pretty amazed at the quality of those tools. We use them at our workshop here in US.

oh yes. it is much more than what we think it is. keep watching this thread and you'll know how the points system is and how the filtering process goes and all that fun stuff.
trust me, you ain't seen nothing yet my friend.

in the meanwhile, meet the raceshop and the team.

stuff that goes into a NASCAR.now these are all regulated. like F1 has the FIA which looks into every tiny details of an F1 car, all these components are rigourously check for compliance by the NASCAR officials.

Yeah, real shame that its not more popular elsewhere. I'd really like to try to watch a few races and understand the workings of it. Perhaps if I ever stay in America for an extended period, I'll get the chance.

Any idea why it is patronized only by USA & not by any other countries? Why USA doesn't have a F1 track? May be Indianapolis only as of now & most of the other tracks used in 60's & 80's?
