So I finally pulled the trigger on a virtual racing rig at home. It’s a pretty sweet setup by Fanatec.
Does it feel like a real car? It doesn’t have the “seat-of-the-pants” feel, but you get a ton of feedback through the steering wheel. It’s definitely fun. I might have to get an actually seat and a better shifter in the future.
I’ve already learned a bunch from Sim Racing… like picking the right line, controlling the balance of the car, steering with throttle, and making corrections through the steering wheel. Sadly, I still suck at heel-toe. x_X
PS. GT6 is coming out soon.
Nice! That looks pretty sweet. Next you’ll have to get one of these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWkQW80Afww

yah, i’ve seen that video before… THAT looks like fun. i’ve heard that those kinds of set ups are pretty expensive!
