    Well I found an old bookshelf for now...had to pull out a shelf and she wobbles a bit but it's a start. Any suggestions on Force Feedback setting or other settings I should know about when first getting started?

    Thanks in advance :tup: 1strig.jpg

    Start at 5 on FFB. and pay attention to what wheels are being highlighted when selecting those options, you will notice that not all options highlight all wheels. Un-highlighted wheels means that those ones are unaffected by that setting. Sounds like common sense, but you would be surprised how many people don't understand that.

    I think that is the option I was talking about, with the g27 it does nothing. That or the assisted steering. Or both...

    I am certain that having the the wheel set on Simulation changes the ramp rate at which the FFB follows. On amateur it seems to be extremely easy even when the FFB is set at 10.

    @simracejesse You online?

    Well, I use a Joe Weider (small) weight bench with the Wheel mounted on the height adjustable preacher curl and a hockey bag full of blankets that is blocked between the bench press uprights (comfortable).

    I have been able to comfortably get kids as low as 5 years old to 6'.6" individuals to play on it. And it is very rigid.

    It started out as a temporary measure ...but it has proven to be more longterm (going on three years...also some iracing)

    My force feedback has always been 10

    Pretty sure that that setting only applies to the DFGT and DFpro. As I said, when you first highlight a setting, you will see what wheels that particular setting applies too. Only those two wheels show as being affected. To add some verification, there is lots of posts about it in this thread, I linked to the first after me to share this sentiment.

    I would have liked that except fur der Noob Ring uf Baad Racencraften nichtpassingschpotz.

    At least the Vikes have sniffed something other than someone else's UnderArmor... (Longtime 'Skins fan)

    really? I think of all the tracks, this one has the most passing spots, probably because of the size. But there are plenty of opportunities to pass for sure. Though I am partial, I do really like that track. I can see why people wouldn't like it. All the rough curves, lots that increase in radius too, and can be quite narrow.

    I look forward to seeing the other choice. The Elise is a great car but I believe it is the most used car in SNAIL history. I am looking forward to something new:)

    Elise was the name of the hot girl I wished was my girlfriend a long time ago... Subliminal yearning? Or just a kicking car?

    Just because it is best does not mean we should not go to such an irresistible choice Jobyone ...

    OK - great car. Dropping analogy.

    Gonna give the data entry a shot. So far I'm 2 for 2 on replays! Here's hoping I'm not the first one to report a crash!
