    My DIY Load Cell mod for T3PA Pro

    I did the same. Finally gave up on Thrustmaster before Thansgiving last year and just went all Fanatec with v3 pedals and all. Much happier in the end although now I'm actually considering an upgrade of the v3 pedals to something better like Huskenveld or something.

    Sony Explores Bringing PlayStation Exclusives (like Gran Turismo) to PC

    It's pretty unlikely I'll be buying a console again so making it available on PC would be the only way I'll play. That said, unlike Microsoft who don't care about selling consoles it's still something Sony very much cares about so dunno if you would see this.

    NASCAR Driver Rage-Quits Esports Event, Loses Real World Sponsor

    Key point. "Used to be". I used to live in a world without Covid-19 spreading everywhere but does not change my current reality. Motorsports used to be: a lot cheaper, less safe (one of the reasons it was cheaper), way less tech heavy (again a reason it was cheaper), were less reliant on...

    NASCAR Driver Rage-Quits Esports Event, Loses Real World Sponsor

    Would if it made the brand look bad. Again, it's a marketing business and you better please the customer (which is probably more your sponsors than the fans to be honest although you gotta do both).

    NASCAR Driver Rage-Quits Esports Event, Loses Real World Sponsor

    He's an idiot. He clearly does not understand the racing business. He thinks it's all about the cars and racing in real life and nothing else. Stupid. It's plain and simple a marketing business. Right now esports is what is attracting eyeballs. You adapt and change or die. If he wants it to be...

    NASCAR Racer Says Esports Race Team Deals Make "Real Race Car Drivers Want To Puke"

    Since the outbreak and all that is happening with real-life drivers heading to the sims I've thought about this idiot more than once. He looked dumb when he said it but now he looks especially dumb. Maybe he should just go back to working at the gas station or auto repair shop.

    My DIY Load Cell mod for T3PA Pro

    This guy never responded as you can see. Just do what I did, sell all your Thrustmaster gear and upgrade to something better. In my case I went DD Fanatec and pedals but there are many other even nicer options. You won't regret it. :)

    NASCAR Racer Says Esports Race Team Deals Make "Real Race Car Drivers Want To Puke"

    Well, as many of you mention e-sports is probably their last best hope to keeping their sport going in terms of fan interest. Nascar will probably die off anyways within 20 years but e-sports at least get new fans in. My kids don't care about cars, much less racing (even my 20 year old). Cars...

    GT Sport Champion Igor Fraga Wins Twice in Monza to Take F3 Championship Podium

    Another reference point. David Perel is a professional Ferrari driver in the Blancpain GT series. He's a nice guy and also a sim Racer. He recently started back into iRacing and driving the Ferrari that he drives in real life he's not immediately dominating the races. I'm sure he will get...

    GT Sport Champion Igor Fraga Wins Twice in Monza to Take F3 Championship Podium

    Lewis Hamilton sucks at sim racing. His brother beats him. I don't think you can say one translates directly to the other. It's the only e-sport with a very close real-life equivalent but it's still not the same thing. Close in many ways but not the same. In some ways sim racing is much harder...

    GRID Review: A Fun Enough Arcade Racer, But Too Lean

    How about controllers? How you finding it? I really don't want to buy this on PC just so I can use my sim rig wheel. I much prefer to buy it on Xbox one X and do couch racing for an arcade title.

    PlayStation 5 Devkit Uses GT Sport to Show Off New Haptic Controller

    Interesting. I've always been an Xbox guy but that's about when my current xbox live subscription runs out. These new controllers might convince me to switch over to PS5 for my couch racing if supported on a new title. Also depends on what msoft and Turn 10 do. I feel like Forza has fell quite...

    GRID Preview: Fast and Fun Thrills Aplenty in Franchise Reboot

    Only thing I'm wondering about is the comments about the controller feel. Jimmy Broadbent also mentioned that he could more easily feel when a car will slide with wheel than controller where I think he said it was kind of a guess. I want this as a couch racer and hence want it on my xbox one...

    iRacing Will Add Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport This Winter

    Yeah, but look at it this way. They are the only sim to date to provide a good consistent online experience including some policing of user behaviour. It does not mean you still wont' get booted off the track but not maliciously without there being repercussions. They also provide consistent...

    iRacing Will Add Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport This Winter

    Nope. ACC has a "new engine" that they bought and it performs terribly IMO (frame rate wise unless you dumb it down a lot). Iracing looks quite good at 4k with lots of accurate details but still great frame rate (which is sooo critical for good racing). They seem to aim purposely for a bit...

    Gran Turismo New York Preview: New Partnership, New Content, New Drama

    No I got the impression Montoya is just attached to Michelin somehow and Michelin is sponsoring GTS so hence Montoya was asked to show up. He's not against GTS, just not currently a Playstation owner by his own words and hence not a regular player or fan per se. Did mention the big sims he...

    Gran Turismo New York Preview: New Partnership, New Content, New Drama

    I have to say this game just seems to get better and better. I'm a longtime xbox/Forza guy and have switched mostly to PC now for my racing on iRacing and other sims but have to say this game almost makes we want to get a PS4 Pro. Just too costly for one game really but it does look to have a...

    Audi RS3 LMS TCR Coming to iRacing Next Month

    Forza is really more of an arcade. Simcade at best. Anyways, I don't really like driving Nascar cars but they sure are popular on iRacing and other games. TC's will appeal to some but not others. I don't judge Nascar as not being fun even though I don't prefer to drive them myself. Every genre...

    Audi RS3 LMS TCR Coming to iRacing Next Month

    Yes, the touring cars are hella fun in Raceroom. I only hate that it's hard to find a race with them unless you join a league. I'll probably pick this car up in iRacing at launch.

    My DIY Load Cell mod for T3PA Pro

    Any update on this? I'm in the US. I would be interested in purchasing your spares for this as long as I can get good pics to see what to do.
