    Here's Alonso from 2013. Fast forward to about 2:25 for a hot lap run into Eau Rouge. He's doing about 180 mph, full throttle all the way through... he even gives it a little KERS coming out of 1.

    For the money most people say the G27 (I love mine). If you have more money then the T500 with pedal and shifter of the fanatec seem like good setups.

    Time to retire the chrome purple-03. I would like to switch color to GT Chrome 006-W. I checked the driver list and it's available. Do I enter it into the spreadsheet or is someone in charge that does it?

    Now if I end up with a g27 am I going to be like a drunk driver at first with the difference until I get used to it? Or does the feel cross over pretty well?

    I always find wheels easier. If you have been driving a long time it should be quick. Just cut the force feedback down to like 4-5 to start. Also if you get one make sure it is mounted on a platform that does not move and finally set the wheel to 670/720 degree rotation.

    Okay, I'll post the room number right at 11pm Eastern / 8pm Pacific. Please join quickly if you want to participate in the random picking of the Mystic Car (we're not going to wait around like we did last time because it really doesn't matter how many participate in the car picking process as long as long as it remains random :tup:)

    I encourage anyone with an H-pattern shifter and clutch to join in for some casual and immersive gear-banging excitement! We be done in an hour tops so the time commitment is minimal! :)

    Thanks for the info!! Why set the wheel to 670/720 just curious? The DFGT goes 900 is that just unnecessary? Also I have my feedback on this one down quite a lot. and no joke about the solid table setup with this DFGT for sure, it moves any smaller table with ease.

    It should have been made known that you have been using it in D8. You would not be eligible for promotion if you were using the driving line. You will not be able to use it in D7 as the host should have all aids disabled except for ABS.

    It's kinda about preference really, many people enjoy 900°. I like it for driving street cars. And bump it to 670 for racing and drifting. The advantage is that counter steering is much faster. But the faster the "ratio" the more erratic the steering gets. The 180 setting is wicked hard to control.

    Fair enough. The wife will have to live with the TV settings up. :). I only used it at night to see better. I was only asking for her as I don't use the driving line normally during the day if I can race. Can't say I listen to it anyways so it was pointless other than making sure the track was there.

    If I'm still awake by then I may stop by and run some laps with a clutch.

    On another note, regarding Sunday's races, I have the laps and qualifying as follows;
    • Round 1 - 5 Laps, 8 minute qualifying session, Car - 242HP/416PP
    • Round 2 - 4 Laps, 6 minute qualifying session, Car - 377HP/518PP
    • Round 3 - 6 Laps, 6 minute qualifying session, Car - 258HP/736PP
    If anyone has something different, let me know so I can adjust the Director's doc.
