I've got both the chevy and the Ford Fusion, and I've found them twitchy, but then again I found the old car twitchy as well.  :-P 

 

I decided to stick with the nationwide car for the moment as this car is easy to drive compared to the Gen 6 cars.

After a lengthy and exhaustive investigation by iRacing, we regret to announce that we discovered a widespread cheating scandal within iRacing. The cheating is specific to drivers of the new Ford Fusion Gen6 NASCAR Sprint Cup cars. After numerous reports of suspected cheating, it was discovered that iRacing engineer Eric Hudec – a longtime Ford fan – intentionally modified the code related to engine horsepower on the Ford Fusion, thereby giving Ford drivers an additional 15bhp.
While we didn’t find specific evidence proving that members who have raced the Ford Fusion knew about the ‘enhancement’, we also did not find conclusive evidence that they didn’t know about it, so in the interest of fairness the iRacing review board has decided to suspend all member accounts that have competed in an official race session in the Ford Fusion. The suspensions will vary in length based on the number of races the individual has completed and range from 1 – 6 weeks. In addition to the suspension, any championship points earned in a Ford Fusion will be forfeited. All those affected by this ruling will receive and email notifying them of their specific penalty.
Due to the large number of penalties; iRacing will not be considering appeals on this matter.
Eric has been terminated from his position and iRacing is searching for a new vehicle dynamics engineer

 

 

Why would they take this out on their paying members? Does not seem fair to me..

First clue should have been the graphic with "Scandal" so stylized.  And that they put it on the front Member page   :)

Good April Fool's joke though.  It's cool the iRacing guys have a sense of humor to actually put it on the front page.

I'll post my question here. im buying Iracing next week. so I will be at noob level. I will be doing indycar oval and nascar oval at some point (I take it when I get the licence to do so) so I was wondering. the nascar type has the better more fun and stacked series (meaning has the numbers to always have races) I dont want to join a series that has barely enough ppl to have a ladder 
trucks,
the sprint car,
the nation wide car
the ss late model and a few diff models etc. my question is. which series has the better interest? what is the difference? and can you run all these cars in the same series ? or what? also Iracing has little to no information on specs of the car on its website, so how can I make a proper determination like weight, HP  etc
