"Fan Always Watch the league race always looks really good and conditions like it's amazing. We're really excited. It was something we haven't actually showing off is Greg. Hill in the guys have done a great job. Even improving the day-night transitions more and sunrise and sunset are a thing of beauty right now and what they're doing is absolutely incredible. We've teased a couple of screen shots with it but the dynamic lighting system that they put in place super cool so you you drove the car yesterday right thing. It's a fun guard. I expected more understood to be honest but it's. It's a fun car. It's of course it's difficult to get a real opinion in six minutes of driving knows awesome people if he wanted to take another ride. I think we probably make that happen. Yeah now about the first impression is really good. It's I think it will be a lot of fun. Fun the race with so what cars are gonNA run in your league this fall so this this sharers starting to use the Geeky cars DC are and Porsche Cup car for that'd be an interesting Porsche Cup car the lack of downforce AIDS going against the GT threes and how that will work in traffic traffic and then the tea CR. That'll be That'll be really cool so if somebody wants to get involved in your league or learn more about it. Where can they go to do that. Well they can go to new mutate endurance dot com for for all the information they can also sign up for for the League. I now well. Thanks for waiting around force more. Swat Kevin was being a superstar and being interviewed by everybody under the Sun. We do appreciate patients and I was looking forward to see what you guys. Do this season thank you. Thanks Peter Myself. It's like all right. I'm back with a couple of great guests from who skiing bell who think well okay. We'll get away with that one technically. It's hosting felt that it's very hard to pronounce my Dutch is is not great. I apologize but I'm with Nilsson spin and I'd like both just introduce yourself wwl's else news felt engineer at host nearing as all the pedals and the shifter's Hamburg's that we make under mechanical engineer and seem racing like since well one of the earliest games from Dave Comer Indy five hundred ninety eight thousand nine. That's one of my first game so in in a way I've been supporting IRA because as the man had been around and spend yourself yeah. We're neighbors fan. I'm responsible more for the commercial side of things engineering folsom in Sim racing since the eighties echoed Grand Prix Indianapolis five hundred one of the first titles Grand Prix legends next game so yeah I racing related titles and has a few years now working together with Nielsen Toasting Field Engineering something which started off very small for us but Israeli offers at the moment and well having a lot of the most important thing and it's funny that you guys mentioned engine both of those titles because I'm not kidding at lunch today. I was sitting down with Kevin Bobby Doug Heinburger with my colleagues. I'm here with we were talking about those two titles and and how it would be cool if someday we could maybe release them No. We're not doing right now as you're listening but it'd be something that'd be cool down the road. Oh Yeah groppy legends was really ask super important important title for us because we were at university back then and I didn't know spend lifting the same city as I did and it turned out. He was hosting racists because his mom work at university. It was the only place Becca those days where you had good internet speed so they could host server de spend would sneak in and launch a dedicated server on the on the university beat. Everybody raise their turnouts east from the same city and we became friends and well. This has this become of it. We've company now. It's so yeah selections. It's probably the most important for us. Yeah we have We have a new sealed new inbox ramp religions in our office. It's in the display case okay so it's really important for us. Also if you've got two people in a company running marketing we know from the same period also grumpy leggings align hemp our or or operations manager also trump your legs every met him in the same era as well so I think it's fair to say without without rump reluctance they wouldn't have been host field engineering and Dan would have been completely different right now yeah yeah and then now the Dutch mommy maybe no for some aspect to the rations but it's not at all up the next time you guys come to the US you need to bring your or your copy of Grand Prix legends with you. Dave sign it to break the seal so no no sign the plastic that might work. I would be really cool all right so let's go back to Spain. Let's talk about it you how you guys over have been involved with. IRA seeing how it got started actually in the game and in some of the the partnership that you've had yeah well Um I mean maybe if maybe it's also important to start about the the company and how that relates to of course racing and also titles before we there's a focus on realism and that's awesome awesome. I realized leggings as a title that much what we felt was lacking at the time in the market like two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen and simulations were getting better but the hardware was not really following suit at the at the moment and if you're able to drive in indycar racing really wants to have the physical experience and also so the hardware which would match more or less than experience but you have to suffer simulator so because the simulations were improving and no grumpy legs the first start to get you the sensation of driving an extra extra car with physics and we wanted to have matching matching hardware with news being the engineer for us to he was also yeah sort of frustration straights with hardware available at the time made a few prototypes of of the federal sold a few on a forum and from that moment it really took off and for us as companies companies really nice. That's the sulphurous developing getting better all the time. There's so many different guys which been dry for temporary I race and we have a lot of customers for example RACECAR drivers who drive I've cautious due to practice sessions and we have a few INDYCAR drivers s customer even with training racing and for us. It's really a matter of being able to supply fly matching hardware which allows them to press one hundred dollars which get an indycar they can do to save enough product so the link between racing it also. I all the suffering is real lesson from suffer aside and try to provide the same level of realism than on the hardware side. That's pretty much the goal for company so if I raised some people developing it's being hotspur simulator then we'll try to save from the hardware side. I think there's there's a safe bet that we're going to continue down that path and it's cool that both companies kind of play off each other but I want to go back to be talked about when you the initial offering pedals whenever ever you can Vince Neil's to build you equipment yeah when when was that so I'm sort of a permanently slightly frustrated sim racer it always has to be better and I did mechanical engineering but didn't do a lot of my education but the pedals titles they didn't feel that great and I started experimenting with Low Sales and in twenty twelve we made some prototypes and spent game over just as a friend he saw that well Neil. How about we start lead a web shop and you know we sell three twenty pedal sets year. We take the wife out for dinner. It'll be fun then slippery slope and now we are thirteen people until two not everybody fulltime but still thirty people so it's it's been growing growing rapidly. So what from the initial offering your prototype to. I guess the newest thing is the sprints. What have you learned. And what have you learned. What did you learn works and what. What did you learn. Does it work. Well you sort of go along and and learn of course I mean I have to admit we've been. We've been quite quite lucky in the beginning as neil sat.

"Quad cities. Tin three winters. Good news. Right. Am I right on that? No, no got thrown. Come on. Last night. You we didn't have good night. We didn't have good news last night. Come on, Mike. I'm not sure what it is. Maybe we need more snow or something. I don't know. Well, tonight's this one of those things where nothing goes, right? Of frustrating because of the sixteen team midwest league quad cities was fourteenth and team bedding at two twenty five. And yet tonight they score ten fifteen hits. They scored at least one run in six of the first seven innings and the in camps were league in hitting or they got nine hits. But they left eight runners on base. And like we talked about last night five if you can't drive runners in Iran as you don't score runs. You don't score runs. You don't win games. And unfortunately in cash now they are one in four on his six game homestand, and they got one more game tomorrow. But the good news for Fort, Wayne. They're going to send the many people consider their eighth nineteen year old hander Ryan weather's to them on the back of the park. Last year Sabbath overall pick in the entire major league draft, and it's gonna make a sixth third of the year. He's an with the one point two ERA. So I always like to say on occasions when things go wrong springs eternal and hopefully to camps can get that wind tomorrow before they go on that nine and ten day road trip starting Monday, he ended the problem at home has been just having scored runes they've lost their last three scored three zero in three in three games. So just not able to get things going at the plate. Now, the ironic thing. Dick, savior Edwards leads leading hitter. He started tonight hitting three sixty nine in orchestrating was tencent league starting at three twenty two. And again, they just can't get the job done. But hopefully, gotta stay positive somehow five, you know, that from all your many years of coaching that even though even though you rough stretch somehow, you got to persevere, and that's what they gotta do. Quad cities will be the opponent for the four hundred ten caps tomorrow afternoon at one one oh five Mike moss as always Mike. Thanks so much for the call have a great week five Savio. Thanks so much the man himself. Joe stays in the joins me to talk about the indianap- skilled solo Joe. Many years of great coaching know, listen, I just so ago. So I. Four I'm in four, but whose counting. Besides me, and my family who's who's counting the all of those those halls of fame that I'm in. But it didn't he say nine games at ten days and a lot of absolutely. That's exactly what he said. That's why. To be in a way that law. That's that's that's tough. It is tough. That's why you chose the sport that you play once a week. Overule Arctic it's one or the other. But the that what's the week? And I don't you about that whole thing that's kind of cool. But the greatness of today, actually, the see let's be honest, right? We didn't get anything done until after seven o'clock tonight with the Kentucky Derby, we silence. It was just a way to clear period you to sensational hockey. And then the Houston Rockets go bait the warriors game is is it over time. It's a three point game with less than two minutes ago. I'd say what it's a great time of year for sport. We got out of the speedway, you know, next week with the grand prix, Indianapolis is happening rave out. It's just wanted to be here in town to be able to take it all in absolutely Hatton. And alright what happens in a mini camp. You know, remember back in the day when you were rookie minicamp. What's this about rookie? Minicamp was interesting because it was just, you know, all those rookies, Scott crafted all the undrafted free agents. All these guys come in. So I don't know similar to neighborhood of anywhere between fifteen thirty guys. Just kind of depends on the team coming in and getting individual coaching getting label. This what we expect out of you learning. Where were you gotta go here. Here's the weight room. Here's the cafeteria. Here's the shower. Drawing or right? Just little things like that that are day to day operations that you need to know. And then these guys slowly get acclimated to that. And then by the way, they're gonna beat slowly they're gonna get to meet some of their veteran teammates that they're going to you know, some of the big the big is about. Me give acquainted with you with your surroundings. All right. Hang on here through the break. And you do that. We'll come back to all the more football with Joe stays the.
