Re: GameOn 10th Anniversary Skin (Race07)

Any recommendations on a good wheel/pedal set? Money is a bit tight, I'm a bit pissed I missed out on the 100 Logitech G25 deal a week or so back.

Re: GameOn 10th Anniversary Skin (Race07)

Well, race cars are like any other car, if you let go of the wheel it will return to center naturally (unless there is a steering damper fitted in which case it will not spring back as much!).
I can only recommend the G25 cos thats all I have! :s

Re: GameOn 10th Anniversary Skin (Race07)

If your using the Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows, then you can't go far wrong by buying the Microsoft 360 wheel. It's no G25, but you would have the benefit of using it with your 360 as well (for Forza winnage )

http://www.thehut.com/hut/10051594.p...2009-351677581 I don't know if this one works with the PC so you'll have to do some research, but you could probably knock out a lap time or two with that

Re: GameOn 10th Anniversary Skin (Race07)

Good luck for tomorrow Vulpine
Noticed that you guys are racing Donington national in the wet, what sort of times are you all getting? I thought I'd give it a go and managed a 1.17.8 in the BMW E90, which I'm guessing is somewhat off the pace

Re: GameOn 10th Anniversary Skin (Race07)

Excellent Lee, thats a good time, my PB is 1:18.022 with the Volvo.
I bet the BMW is a bit lively in the wet!

Re: GameOn 10th Anniversary Skin (Race07)

It didn't seem as bad as I'd thought, I'm no expert at all when it comes to the setups but I softened the rear and gave it less toe front & rear to give it a little more stability. To be honest I think it would also benefit from some ballast up front in the heavy wet as I was struggling to maintain front tyre temperature, but not too sure on the official rules for that.
Thats an awesome time in the volvo, I will have a go but don't think I'll be able to match that, I think my driving style suits the RWD cars more as in the FWD cars I tend to end up with either massive understeer on acceleration post-apex, or low exit speed I am definately going to practice more with them though, as they do have a huge benefit on the 3rd-party tracks that have some severe bumps and lumps in the road mid-corner where the terrain joins, guessing due to the way they are made? either way the RWD cars seem to be much more easily upset by them!

Gutted I didn't join before the season! Do you know how the reserve driver thing works? There is a thread for reserve drivers but no details on how to sign up as one etc....
