Re: Calling all simulator enthusiasts

WOW, that sounds really cool. Bonus for getting kids involved. We're currently facing battles with the motion sim because manufactures < $10K don't seem to be responsive. Getting the team ready for NON-Motion if they don't respond, but then will try to get 2 stationary units so we can compete if gam...

Looks awesome. Nice work there b3freak!

Really glad that they did the pre-qualification video. You would be amazed how many shops sell the IMS package that had NO CLUE about the pre-qual procedures.
