My new pc is sat at home all rigged up just waiting on my obutto rig to arrive


Obutto seems a great value cockpit, but I've never seen one in the flesh. Let me know if it's any good Smile

Do you guys like iRacing?

I signed up for a few months but have let it expire.

The Mazda racing was fun and the legends, liked going round Oulton and bought a Williams F1 car which was fun round Oulton. Smile

I wasn't sure what to do apart from the Mazda and legend racing though, probably had to work my way up and the wheel I have - a Logitech GT just didn't ever seem to feel right. I played around with the wheel settings a lot and got something that was drivable but not fantastic.

We need a petition for iRacing to scan Knockhill. Very Happy

I haven't driven round the real Oulton but apparently it is very accurate, anyone driven then real track and can comment on the comparison?

Its perfect Struan - it really is like you are there in real life.

Even all the scenery is exact - with them scanning it everything is there it's not like some games where they have tried to recreate the track and scenery.

It's probably worth the money to play at Oulton alone but i'd really like more from it than that. Not really interested in all the Nascar stuff either.

Havent tried Bathurst yet. I think that was added this month.

Once you get out of the rookie licence it opens up a bit in terms of cars you can race. IIRC radicals and V8 Supercars are available, skip barber and the GT cars aswell.

I used to find some of them a real struggle to drive, but with the new tyres models its making the cars more accessable

I'll take some more pics once I get the triples on.

Take up less space than I thought it would, very stable aswell. I just used to play iracing on laptop with the wheel on a coffee table!! Wonder if my times will get better?!

The new PC is running all the graphics on max and not even breaking a sweat
