Still impresses me that you manage to drive the car like that @SharkyUK with a mere gamepad!

I'd suspect that with a proper wheel setup, you'd enjoy it a hell of a lot more.
Last night in work I was dicking around in Dirt Rally 2.0 and managed to go 384th fastest on the global leaderboard on Bidno Moorland in a 95 Impreza... on a laptop using arrow keys LOL.

Wheel is SO worth it, even just a G27 or similar, but the new Fanatec CSL DD is so good for the price, so get that.

Yeah, I absolutely would mate - I've no doubt. I really enjoy playing on my friend's Fanatec setup. I've just been holding off as I'm not sure which way to go with it. I really want to go full motion / actuated rig but keep talking myself out of it due to the cost. I already have a perfect room off the side of my home office that is ideal for a sim setup; literally ready to go. The missus doesn't mind what I do but it's a lot of money and, only being an occasional racer / tourist, I can't sensibly justify it. In the meantime I think I'll probably look at a half-decent wheel and pedal setup that offers enough flexibility to use 'standalone' or as part of a decent rig setup (thinking to the future).

Impressive on a keyboard! :ROFLMAO:

And yes, that Fanatec does look good. As do the Heusinkveld pedals I keep looking at...! :p

Seems like a Fanatec CSL DD setup is hard to get hold of due to parts availability? Also, the configurator on their website confused me! :LOL: I was trying to price up a CSL DD setup that could be used on PC and Xbox, got to around 1.5k, and still wasn't sure if I had all the bits I needed or not. :ROFLMAO:

That's the main reason why I went for the GT Track setup mate. It was a good 'halfway house' between a entry level setup and a professional bit of kit that has optional expansions including motion platforms.

The latter as well you know are horrendously expensive - I think I've seen one motion pack at over £5k alone - but who knows if someone lets a gem slip through onto eBay in a few years time? ;)

Shutoko is kinda dormant. The server’s still going and fairly popular I think but there hasn’t been much in the way of track updates

Think it's officially released though, right?

I find it gets a bit boring after 10 minutes just going up and down the highway.


Really enjoying racing in the rain actually, especially night races around Spa and similar circuits.


Trying to drive VR with the rain effects is one of the most taxing things you can do with an Ampere GPU lol

This is using a slightly older build from earlier in the year, still looks amazing. Performance has improved since, but driving 90+ frames across two panels is tough, had to compromise on certain things such as shadows, grass, etc.

Yeah, I bet!

I think I'm going to put in a pre-order for the Fanatec CSL DD setup that is coming in November. I'm also really tempted by the Heusinkveld pedals with load cell brake setup; I really want that feeling of resistance and pressure in the brake pedal rather than moving a pedal connected to a potentiometer.

(Sorry for the quality - gamepad sucks and my ageing GPU struggles trying to drive AC on ultra settings, ultrawide screen and record at 60fps too!)
