Who am I??? Just some random person who loves going fast, loves flying high, loves crashing expensive cars and loves to earn gold. I also like sharing what I've learned in this game.
It's really not that long ago that I was just another racer trying to get 1st in career races. Around the summer of 2016 I started taking off the training wheels and got better. I spent my first 1.5 years in this game running Tilt A, SA high, BA low and TC on. Then I would toggle off assists to take the odd off-track cut, but then turn them right back on after the cut. Eventually I just got sick of it all. I was gaining 3-5 seconds a lap at Le Mans, but spending 6-8 seconds a lap pausing and toggling assists on and off. To earn more gold/minute, I needed to make a change. MAN am I glad I did!!
Tilt B no assists is just awesome. I can do what I want to, when I want to. If I crash off-track, SA doesn't waste my time by forcing me to drive a certain way. It also doesn't force me to drive the same line all the bots are in! That means more inside or outside passing. BA doesn't force me to brake in 3 places at Hockenheimring where no brakes are required. TC doesn't waste my time and speed out of the corners. PLUS... I can DRIFT whenever I want to. CUT whenever I want to. FLY whenever I want to.
There are some places where SA is very helpful. Indy Speedway, Daytona Speedway and even Richmond. On the Speedways it helps with those nimble movements you need to steer, but not get loose. I find it critical when racing Indy Speedway Endurance races for maximum distance. When I put SA high, I drop my sensitivity to 0.
I love jumping cars! It's really fun in this game, because jumping isn't a part of it. When you jump in RR3, it's realistic. A friend here started a thread on my wall a while back called ME7's Flying Club. If you jump, feel free to join the club! If you want to learn how to jump you can check out my video about it. It has ended up being my most watched video on YouTube so far. It was the first time I tried making a teaching video. Click on this link for it RR3 jumps! Where they are, how to jump and how to capture it..
TECHNICAL STUFF: I'm sometimes asked about my device and screen recorder.
- I race on a Samsung Galaxy S7, but not for long!! Very recently Samsung Canada changed their software so that you cannot record internal audio. well that absolutely sucks for making gaming videos! the only way I can record internal audio is a Samsung's stock screen recorder. However it's video quality as a subpar. I spoke with Samsung directly and they told me many people have called them about this. They have certainly lost me as a customer!!
- I used to use Mobizen Screen Recorder for Samsung (says that on the app). They switch to a pay for use platform. Within a week of them doing that Samsung made their change so I'm done with Mobizen. There are several other screen recorders that do everything Mobizen does, but for free.
- I used the free version of PowerDirector in the past. My more recent videos have me using the full version of it. you can tell when I'm using the full version because there's no watermark in the bottom right. It has many features and options. The free version allows you to upload in 1080 and even 4K by just watching one short add. Good deal!
- I made this teaching video for racing Porsche Short Track in the Audi R8 LMS Ultra using the 3 above.

My first cinematic short film ;-)
Here's some of my favorite pics;
WRECK MAGNUS!! I loved doing this in the Gauntlet. Every time I could, I would pit Magnus. I miss the Gauntet's! Here my best shot. You gotta love those sparks as his front end grinds along the wall!
My perpetual burnout in the MP4-X
From Unleash The Beast stage 6.4. It's what Hunters do...
A picture of one of my favorite cars doing a nice burnout. The car is so balanced, almost perfect.
Flying high in the FXX K. No editing here. I paused in the air and used the in-game photo option.
Anyone can fly at Nurburgring... but can you do it in reverse?? Also an in-game photo.
Some contact during a Le Mans farming race that looked cool with all the sparks. Again, real footage with nothing added.
This one is just so funny. This is back in the day when you could wreck EVERY single car in a NASCAR race. I had wrecked all cars and decided I would hit this one that was stopped, at near full speed. The impact was so violent that my car ended up in the #20. Here's the video, screenshot from the interior portion after.
