  1. Yea actually they have a  Suggestions department for people who have Legitimate (useful suggestions) like this.

    I will mention that as Surprisingly not all users are high speed internet customers ( Wait first what is considered high speed now days?0

    I remember high speed was 1500/768 at one time, Kbps that is.

    would a 20 Mbps connection be high speed? or does it need to be like 200Mbps or higher? 

    One of the guys on my team I help with setups lives outside of Spokane Washington (Rural area) and his internet is best he can get but nothing like what is available locally here.

    My Parents live in a 55 and Older town in washington and all they can get is this company called Centurytel.net and to me seems they are stuck using the technology and speed from like 2005 


    Ill make a suggestion to them and see what they say.

  2. Yea we do a Destruction derby after the races, Usually Cody the broadcaster guy pans off to scenic view this time he left it on the winner, I was the third guy to hit him, I was hoping coming up backwards I would catch them off guard, But forgot these things are made to go left not right so it was crazy hard to drive in that direction.

    Hopefully I will get up there with my Xfinity car too so it can be seen on youtube.


    I also am looking for parts to build a dedicated iRacing computer and as soon as I do that I have about 50 Races I will start Encoding and posting to youtube.


    It is kinda cool though now the VRN (Virtual racing Network) Uses Testmy.net as well as 4 of the other drivers since I started running these paints

    I need to learn more about your latency feature as that would be a huge item all Racers should be using to be sure all is good when racing, Sadly we get a lot of people who Blink Out (Disappear) in the races (Mostly official ones not so much this league)  due to bad internet Latency and it can cause huge issues like wrecks etc..


    Sadly a ton of people bought into the ISP pushing their recommended test sites and think if they show good they are fine and i have seen so many posts about how the So and SO test site shows all good but when racing their Quality and latency is bad. 

  3. So last nights race at ISM in my league was awesome, got some great coverage and mentioning of the Testmy.net site.

    No I am not officially sponsored by the site, but due to the great tools and time I have been a a member of Testmy.net and watched the site expand I could think of no better way to say  thanks not to mention a better tool for those who run the Simulation as it needs great internet reliability and there is none better to use to ensure you are in top shape.

    I added a link stating  from where race starts, I hope you guys enjoy this and thank  you for all the help you have provided to allow me to keep Xfinity honest and tools to know my internet is up to snuff.

  4. I'm running the Nvidia GTX 460M, But I was under the assumption that OBS Studio used  a CPU Based encoder(X 264)  to create the video files and I figured since my GPU is pretty maxed rendering the iRacing .rpy files so I can view them  using the CPU and Ram Would be my best option. 


    I think my best option is to either find a pawn shop that has a decent case and MB or just a case and then start getting the MB etc as I can until I have a finished system.

    I do not really need to much just a decent MB, RAM, GPU  I have a Awesome USB WIFI Adapter,  USB Sound Card, a couple HD.s  Keyboard Mice, Monitors.

    Only need the most important stuff, Like I have a great car just no Drivetrain LOL.

  5. Well dang got some new pics while killing it at Watkins glen then jut realized I already have my MENCS Toyota uploaded.


    My LAME POS I call a computer still will not encode from a replay file to a MP4 without it skipping(pausing) Lack of GPU power I think.


    I doubt it is CPU or Memory 

    i have a i7 quad core 2.9ghz and 12gb ram never see it use more then 20% ram or 20% cpu 

    now GPU is most time ( even when overclocked to maximus of 825 MHz GPU clock and 3100 MHz Memory Clock 

    it shows 96% memory use and between 80-100% GPU usage

    But still works fine for racing so until I can come up with some $$ or find some misc spare parts and build a system I am stuck with what I have.

  6. OK so I was able to get a few  well 3 cars

    My Xfinity, Cup and the Dirt Street Stock


    Plus I have 2 people I run with now using your site to check their internet as any ping much over 133 causes problems ( cars will blink in and out of reality and it can cause huge wrecks etc.)


    Oh also the guy who streams our monday and thursday races  

    VRN (Virtual Racing Network)  uses your site to keep his connection in tip top shape

    I will have videos and more screenshots soon

    my teammate is encoding 6 videos for me.

  7. I know this was started like eons ago but my 1000 cents are needed here.

    A Air compressor is absolutely fine, though to be honest set you PSI to about 20 first (depending on your attachment ( Air Snozzle) it can carry a huge punch.

    if 20 seems weak slowly increase until you feel comfortable.

    I use a Desiccant Air Dryer and 3 Filters  directly off compressor is a Water separator then a oil remover then desiccant then final filter ( I do not say you need this I also Paint Guitars, Car Parts Neighbors Dogs  err I mean cars SO I need those items plus dryer) Also my area is quite moist 375 days a year so I can collect like 1/2 gallon water in a week easy in my tank.


    I have been building computers and repairing Peavey Commercial Series Professional amps (computers since 2001 amps since 2009) using a vac and hose to me would be sketchy at best, like rubbing feet on dry carpet then sending that nice spark directly into MB.

    Of all the electrical items I Have worked on those Peavey CS Amps are IMHO indestructible, I bought a CS 1000X ( one time cost $1 per watt) that was said to be for parts only due to being flooded in florida 

    I received it opened it was shocked to see so much MUD inside,  disassembled all boards, replace Pots (Potentiometers X2) Had to blow the HEck out of it and use my tooth brush (retired) and a few cans of Electrical contact cleaner and in end it works great and I still use it to this day.

    Those amps need to be cleaned every 3 months if used daily due to massive air flow through Heatsinks.

    My point is I Have been using a air compressor to blow out all sorts of items for a long time with no ill side effect.

    But must use common sense.


  8. well I now (thanks to my teammate BJ Sheldon) Have the almost complete Testmy.net Line up,

    I have the CW (Gander Outdoor) Toyota

    Xfinity Toyota

    Monster energy Toyota

    Dirt Street Stock

    SK Modified

    Whelan Modified

    K&N Series (Impala I think)

    410,360,305 Winged Sprint Cars

    Lucas Oil Pro 4 and Pro 2 trucks

    Unfortunately I have a ton of replays saved but my computer will not create a decent youtube (or any video) I can share that

    does not pause and skip etc.

    WHat I ca do for now is get screen shots of each and once I can afford a better computer or figure out issues then get videos.

    Though I am doing the NW League series which is brodcasted to youtube (Xfinity mondays and CW Trucks on Thursdays)

    I'll add some links soon.


  9. Seem sfor some reason daily I find I need to restart my Modem/Gateway as speed goes into toilet.

    Like todays test I think I am 1/2 Download speed and 1/10 upload of normal lately.

    I get a ton of uncorectable Codewords listed to I have no Idea Why or what that is and I trust 

    the answers I would get from xfinity as much as I trust the government.

    Also anyone noticed slower speeds when say an Iphone or Ipad is connected 

    I should sayhigher ping rather then speed.

    Even though the 5 Ghz AC connection has 1 connected device ( this One) seems ping goes way up with those devices connected even if idle.

    Probably has to do with the Gateway to xfinity connection rather the the Wifi.


  10. So here is my question what is a correctable and uncorrectable codeword and how concerned should I be to see like multiple thousands of these on my gateway that was reset like 29 hours ago?

    I have  added my snippets It may be nothing I just want to be sure as i do not recall the uncorrectable ever being this high so fast. maybe if it had an uptime of say 1-2 weeks but not 29 hours


    BTW these #'s start at 1 and go to 33 I did not include all as i felt it was overkill

  11. I just seen a email my Teamate sent ( the one who does all my paints) He has now added the Testmy.net Logo to every single vehicle I run on IRacing.

    So now I have a boat load of replays to get converted  so you can see them.

    I run well here is a current list 

    Dirt STreet Stock

    305,360 and 410 Winged Sprint cars

    Lucas Oil Pro2 and Pro4 Trucks

    Dirt  Late Model Pro and Super

    K&N Series

    Late Model Paved series

    Whelan Modified

    S&K Modified

    And of course those I already mentioned 

  12. So I noticed after Windows did its Windows 10  Update that a few of my settings in TCP Optimizer ( not to mention speed decrease)  was present.

    Just a  FYI for anyone wondering what happened after update, If you notice speed decrease.

    If you use TCP Optimizer you will see what I mean if not I am not sure how to explain which settings were changed  Sorry.


  13. I just noticed the video is skippy, I just think some days my GPU  canot keep up,

    Plus Imay have forgotten to set it to the overclocked setting until like 4 laps in 

    if quality gets better and stops skipping that is why sorry about that, I will redo it with proper GPU settings Monday ( lol it is monday ) but later this morning after I get some sleep 

  14. So here is a short few laps I ran at Chicagoland with most updated graphics.

    BJ Sheldon ( My Teammate) did the amazing graphics for me and did a great job.

    BTW my speed is better using WIFI ( ASUS  USB AC68 Adapter 1.3 Gbps ) then using the onboard Realtek Lan 1.0 Gbps wired into Gateway.

    Plus so sad seen using the (Xfinity Test) they say I get 998 Mbps/45Mbps but I know that is a farce plus watching speeds jump all over the place.

    I sure am thankful you have a site we can get realistic speed results , I doubt I ever use any servers in portland where you know I use iRacing ( Boston MA) servers almost daily and is nice to get realistic results from that distance .

    Here is link to my short youtube clip of truck, will get some more soon with entire races just wanted to get you something as it has been awhile 



    I Have the Testmy.net on my B class Xfinity  Toyota  and my A class Monster Energy Toyota also will get those posted soon . If Dodge ever comes back to Nascar I will then be running MOPAR Vehicles :) 


    If you think I need to change anything let me know
