    Is it even possible to connect 3 screens to a console?

    A track car may cost 35.000 to buy, but to keep it driving through a season the costs add up quick. Even if you do not damage the car...
    The interaction with other people is far better on a trackday though. And I think more fun.

    Ofcourse, I agree with everything you guys are saying, but this is for those that are rich enough to let their kid play on a simulator without banging up the porsche or the ferrari...

    Plus, I think it'd be a great way to practice for real track days, especially with games like Live For Speed, GTR2, etc... maybe even Shift 2?

    Because they don't let you on the track with others in multi-million dollar equipment while drunk in your underwear at 4 AM?

    Don't drink and drive.
    That goes double for driving fast.
    The best and cheapest way to prove that to yourself is trying to beat your fastest laptime in a carsim / racing game after only 3 beers.
    You will never be able to beat your best time set in sober conditions, unless you really really suck at driving in general.

    You can flip a 2-stroke kart real easy because of the grip of the tires.
    When on 2 wheels, the best reaction is very counter-intuitive.
    In stead of steering straight to get the cart back on all fours, which will send you off track in most cases, just go full throttle.
    The backwheel will slip and you can continue the corner.
    I got myself some scary moments before I discovered that...
