A fun thread for us to keep our self's amused. (if this messes with the search engine the Admin will have to remove it) We did this back in the day on the GTR forum, and was amusing to read over.

So ill start

You know you're playing too much Project Cars when....... you nearly catapult your self through the windscreen of the daily driver, after trying to brake with your left foot.

Well there's a long thread at WMD about this, but there it's called something like "You Know you're a pCARS Addict when...."

When you want to learn as much as you can about racing disciplines you usually don't follow, and start watching any and every race that comes on during the weekend. Last Sunday I must have watched 5 or 6 races back to back, starting with MotoGP and a GT race at Sebring, and capping it off with the NASCAR race at Dover.
