What's your online racing experience and wheel setup?

Post by Rhime on Sun May 31, 2015 6:49 pm

I thought I'd ask what are our members online racing backgrounds and wheel setups?

I'll start with mine coming from a lot of Nascar Racing 2003 Season and the WolfPack Racing club (now retired). I gained a lot of great experience online with that club racing each weekend and practicing. Project Cars has pretty much the same setup in racing and practice sessions as that sim.
I use a G27 wheel with a 32" Panasonic monitor

I've been sim racing since about 2004-2005, I started off with NR2k3, but I've been playing racing games since the SNES days. I raced in a few different leagues on NR2k3, I was even accepted into vMaxSR which is probably the highlight of my NR2k3 career. Besides NR2k3 I've raced on pretty every single sim out there, but over the last few years I've kinda moved away from the hardcore sims as I just wasn't having a whole lot of fun anymore and I've focused more on racing on the simcades. I have a G25, I bought a Thurstmaster TX with the 458GTE wheel but I sold that last year and now I just race with an Xbox 1 controller.

I'm regretting selling the TX, it was an amazing wheel but my current desk isn't made for a wheel and it's really hard to hook one on. I'm hoping once I can save some money I will get a better desk and get another TX.

I ran a succesful 4 Season Super GT series in Gran Turismo 5 and countless events within the Forza franchise. I really enjoy good racing I would rather come in last if it means I have a great on track battle.I currently use A Logitech g27 Wheel and a 40" Samsung for my setup i use to use the DFGT before (good little wheel). Look forward to racing in this series as it looks to be well thought out and in the same vein I used to race in GT.

I have ran in and won a handful of TORA races on FM4 and FM5, and i have ran 3 series and 2 websites most notably the FSCS. On console and with a controller im no slouch at all in terms or competitive lap times (im top 100 world wide on forza). However, on pc and with a wheel... well i need a lot of practice lets say that. haha. I use a g27 wheel and as for settings i dont mess about with them much from default which is most likely much to my detriment. So that being said i might be inconsistent and in the back of the pack on this platform but i understand the rules of the road very well and am a respectful driver.

well in my case I've been racing since grand prix legends came out, which I still use and help run a league, also rfactor for which I was involved in a few mods, in the last couple of years it's been kind of hard to do any racing during the week, which that gpl league does and have been keeping track of pCars from the beginning, so I am trying to get back into doing some racing again, I am not a very big fan of GT cars, been following f1 from the mid seventies but I do like endurance and WEC

I use a 360 controller, but I'm hoping to get a wheel setup in the next year or 3. Personally, I doubt it'll ever happen. I just tune the car to the deficiencies that the controller gives and while I wont ever be the fastest, I tend to get top 5 in the random lobbies I race in. I've been racing sims since Papyrus' IndyCar Racing and NASCAR Racing in the mid-90's, moved to console racing with Forza 2, then came back to PC with Assetto Corsa when the Xbone was released and now I've moved on to Project Cars where I plan to stay for quite a while.

I tend to drive in what is best described as a rather patiently aggressive manner. I build my tunes in a handling trumps speed kind of way, so if I can catch you I will put my nose right up to your rear bumper every turn until you finally give way and either let me pass or crack under the pressure. I'm not gonna lie and say I'm perfect. Occasionally this will lead to a bump or two. However, to quote one of the best movies of the 90's, I won't slam you, I won't bump you, I won't nudge you, but I will rub you. And rubbin', son, is racin'.

Hello all.  I've been doing sim racing since around 2000.   Back then, I bought a Logitech Formula Force GP wheel which came with Sports Car GT and I purchased F1 2000 (EA/ISI).  Since then, I moved on to other sims and other hardware.  I'm currently using:

rSeat Evo V2 rig
2x Buttkicker Gamer2's
G25 Steering wheel/pedals
DSD Button Box
Three monitor setup

I'm planning on switching from the G25 setup to a Thrustmaster T300 with Fanatec or other pedals.  I'm not fast, but I race clean and just look to have a good time with other fun racers.
