No I'm still on the Fanatec V2.5. After a year or so I think I've got them set up pretty well - RB came over and drove some this winter and said my whole setup felt like an actual car compared to...

I may get flamed for this, because it's not the Gucci high end stuff, but I have really enjoyed the Fanatec line. I'm very curious to see how their Direct Drive base is received, though, as I've...

Definitely in ProCoach's corner on this one...ultimately it will depend on personal preference, as well as what you're looking to get from your sim time. I spend a considerable amount of time on the...

That's because it IS the most important component on the rig! Followed by maybe screen resolution & frame rate...and wheel (I actually have a 991 Cup wheel on mine!). I love the ability to take my...

I'd have to defer to guys like Peter, Mike, etc., who have been around the paddock much longer than me. That said, it appears a large percentage have an affiliated services business off-track - but...

Just my $0.02, but that answer is going to depend on the team. For example, the team I'm affiliated with has a primary business designing and installing performance parts for Porsches (and other...

Z - This is truth! If I had one thing I worked on this year more than anything else...it was consistency. I'll spend hours on the sim practicing...not because I don't know the track, or I don't know...

Definitely +1 this book!

On the subject of fast am vs. the pro, and what that does to the equation - the net effect is on the track, not the vocation. What I mean by that is if you can pair a fast...

I think if you peeled that onion back a few more layers you'd find there are actually a lot of parallels between pro ball athletes and pro drivers...with one glaring exception: you can get a...

Truly appreciate the kind words, Peter. I still have MUCH to learn, but am chomping at the bit to get 2019 started (may or may not have spent a few hours on the sim over this dreary weekend)!

Rennlist, you've been trolled. If someone doesn't like PCA's HANS rule, they have the constitutionally-provided "freedom" to chose a different DE organization. Just...

Bump for phenomenal set of wheels. I have 4x identical sets (2x 19", 2x 18") and would buy these in a heartbeat if I wasn't running 997.2 bodywork/geometry up front.

Not sure how it compares to others, but I'm 3-4 seconds faster in the iRacing 991.2 Cup than I am in real life in a 991.1 Cup. Certainly not 100% apples to apples, but I've never driven a .2 in real...

Wow. Hate that I missed this, have been passively looking for a C4 widebody. Put me on the PM-if-it-doesn't-close list for sure.

Just to pile on...I've got the Nikon KeyMission 360. Great resolution (4k) and it does all the processing onboard the camera, however like others it breaks up the files into 7 minute increments. ...
