We had a thread for this but it...got locked, oops. Let's try this again.

What Is This?
We're coming up on the end of the racing season, which means we'll be looking for something to do during the dark ages of late November-late January when racing doesn't happen.

In 2012 or 2013, we set up our own Synchtube channel, which migrated over to CyTube, to gather and watch old racing and other miscellaneous fun stuff like The Darts. Think PSP.tv, just for auto racing instead of wrasslin'. The channel got popular enough that we made it a regular offseason thing and it expanded into a year-round hangout as well. The name, Winter Heat, is a nod to ESPN's actual Winter racing programming in the 1990s.

What Do We Watch In Winter Heat?
-NASCAR
-ARCA
-IndyCar/IRL/CART
-Dirt track racin' (WoO, etc.)
-Local racing action
-Trailer/Figure 8 racing
-NHRA
-Racing documentaries
-Demolition derbies
-Power Wheels demolition derbies
-Extreme Barbie Power Wheels Downhill Racing
-Other randomness people post

There's no real schedule, so look for the thread to be bumped for potential programming! I'd considered putting together a weekly playlist series like MassRafTer does with WCW in the MARK BLOCK PARTY, but then I got another job and...am too lazy. If somebody else wants to take the point (VikingSkull's Dirt Track Corner?), go for it and post the details.

Twitch
We also had longtime racing goon financially racist (formerly cannotfindserver) who did a Twitch stream of NASCAR Dirt to Daytona and NASCAR Thunder 2003 one time and it was fun to watch, so he's apparently going to do that again.

quote:

tentative starting schedule (pacific times): monday 3:30, tuesday 4:45, friday 1:30, sunday noon. stream will end when i feel like it.

Wait, Power Wheels demolition derbies? Get the gently caress out of here.

County fair sanctioned child abuse for the win!

Sounds Awesome. Where Do I Go?
-PP14/Algebra Testes' CyTube channel (Primary): https://cytu.be/r/SASCARWinterHeat
-CFS/financially racist's Twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/cubivoresa

What does DIRT stand for?
You're just going to have to come in, aren't you?

i am prolly gonna start editing and uploading the races to youtube, cutting out boring segments and aiming for a video time of around 5 minutes a race. also sorry about the mic clipping, i did a quick check of my audio before and it sounded fine through my phone, will fix the levels before i stream later today.

p.s. after i win the winston cup in nt2003 i'ma move to a new nascar game. so here are the ones that i own and can capture (i also have 08, 09 and 11 but no hdmi capture device, also those games are fuckawful anyway, especially 08 which might legit be the worst racing game i've ever played, nascar or otherwise). i'll just take votes as to which i'll do next. also lmfao i forgot elliot fuckin sadler was on the cover for 07 holy lol why

Do Thunder 2003 so we can see how the setups work out and go to Dirt to Daytona once you accomplish what you want with Thunder.

i should have had the cars way way way looser. i took the setup screen at face value when it was saying the cars were already really loose but in actuality they were way tight; i figured that was just because i had bad equipment and that was the grip limit, as the car would eventually break sideways if i pushed too hard in the turns.

i cut off half a second at atlanta just by taking out tons of wedge, for example.

e: after further testing, yeah, gonna start over, holy crap i could have been having such better races this whole time and i feel real dumb.
