    I ran into the same problem last year and got a cheapo Anker hub off Amazon. It works fine for my wheel/pedals, keyboard and wireless headset, but won’t charge the DS4 controller. With online reviews I tend to look at the percentages of 4&5s and take 1s with a grain of salt as I think they are often from pissed off people who don’t know how to use said device.

    I got a cooling base for my PS4 and used this to give me additional USB ports, bought it on Amazon:

    To all Snail Drivers:

    We have 1, possibly 2 open grid spots for tonights event at Autopolis International. I'm waiting to hear from a few more of our signed Reserve Drivers, but wanted to extend the invitation if anyone is interested. A tuning link with multiple tried and true tunes are available, and a livery will be provided for the team you are racing for if interested. Tag me in this thread if interested. Hoping to get the grid full for the night.:cheers:

    Your thought to be careful with a USB hub is a good concern. I have been using an old one for years and then swapped it out and tried to use a different one. The newer one was gave me immediate problems that led me to going back to the old one. Unfortunately I don’t remember any more details than that. Don’t buy the cheapest one you can find, at the very least.

    The time passed for me to get one off of amazon in time for sunday, so stopped at Wally world for one this morning. Unfortunately, the only one they had was a powered one, so grabbed it while I was there. I've read a lot of issues involving hubs with a power supply, but hopefully it ends up being okay for Sunday. Fingers crossed...

    @Akzl298 I’d say you’re better with a powered one as you don’t want to starve any power hungry device requiring 5v with significant milliamp draw.

    Ok guys help me decide which wheel hub and pedals to buy my choices are the new Logitech g923 with the shifter $480 thrustmaster t gt think price is almost $600 or the fanatec csl elite starter bundle $565. Leaning towards the fanatec cause upgrade ability but my Logitech dfgt severed me very well with no issues had it since it came out!!!

    I went from the DFGT to the G29 and now to the CSL Bundle in November. It’s a great upgrade if you can swing it. And like you say, you can add on from there if you like. I may try to get the better pedals this spring if I can afford it.

    The Snail Sunday Scoring sheets for Jan 24 have been prepared. And just like that we are at the last race night for the Jan 2021 Season.

    @Nick Cannella

    Here's your official SNAIL Welcome Post!
    Thanks for your interest!
    Here's what you need to know (and do) in order to join SNAIL Racing League:

    We run a clean league by enforcing a strict penalty system based on the SNAIL OLR (which is a modified version of the GTP OLR). We also expect all of our drivers to know and follow The Good Racecraft Guide. Please become versed in both if you aren't already. Once that is complete, please follow the steps below to complete your entry into the league:

    1. You start a conversation and add zer05ive, JLBowler, nmcp1, Rednose58, MajorBlixem, SAMHAIN85 & llNovall as participants.

    The conversation title should be "Request To Join".

    2. SNAIL Administrators will respond with specific instructions on what you need to accomplish to join the SNAIL [Spec] Racing.

    3. Place the following links (URLs) in the favorites (or bookmarks) in your web browser for quick reference. Please make every effort to read and understand the following links. Over the years a great deal of time and effort has gone into creating this league and we would like nothing more than to have you but we ask that you take the time and effort to do your homework. 99.9% of any question you may have about SNAIL can be found in the posts below.
    4. You drive fast and clean on Sunday :tup:

    Again, the original post has everything you need to know about what to expect on Sunday night and what you will need to have completed in order to be competitive. If you have any questions, please feel free to post your question on the thread.

    During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.
    Welcome to SNAIL :cheers:

    Agreed. But we always have Tokyo. Tokyo is sooo much wider and sooo much easier for overtaking! Tokyo even has bumpers like at the bowling alley!

    All hosts should start tonight's racing at the scheduled time. The only reason to hold the start is to give someone who was already in the lobby their three minutes to return from the time they left, provided they are believed to have been disconnected, or to sort invisible driver issues.
