Unofficial OC3D Drivers Team chat

MrKambo suggested it and I thought it was a great idea so without further ado...

Here's a thread for us to discuss various driving sim aspects, be it gaming or setups and also a place to organise tournaments/time trails.


I can't wait for Pcars ( I missed out on buying it :c ) and at the moment I play a little bit of sim raceway when I feel like it. Simraceway might be a good start for our first races against eachother as it's free. Beware though, it isn't the prettiest looking racer out there.


While I remember, can anyone also recommend a good and cheapish setup? I sadly don't have the space in my room for a full setup but I'd like a wheel, shifter and pedals. My current setup works but I've had it since I got midtown madness one back when I was a chiddler and the drivers are a bit...fussy.

couldn't really get into any racesim because they are usually rip offs and i don't have a wheel yet. i do plan on checking out c.a.r.s. though, will get a proper wheel and i plan on getting an oculus rift anyways for SC when they release a 1080p version.

I always reccomend the T500RS to everyone, i know the G27 is legendary but the T500 is newer in tech and seems to get very high reviews

Ive got one, and i love it, i also bought the shifter, its a 7 speed with reverse shifter, but because of the way its designed only game that ive played that supports it is NFS Shift, unless you put it in sequential mode then its win!! But the paddle shifts work with any game

This is Assetto Corsa on my rig, ignore the driving

I like the look of the T500RS as it has full rotation and stuff. Perfect for drifting if there is ever a mod for it. I'll keep an eye on the price incase if it goes super low on black friday.

Now that is something I'd use for Oculus rift!

I am using a logitech driving force gt at the moment. if I got back into racing sims I would consider getting something better. I can not wait for the rift in 1080 I played it at pax aus and it was amazing I would love to use it for a racing sim.

Consider me now in the market for a Wheel/pedals combo...
I've been looking at the Logitech Driving Force GT, but hoping for cheaper price than what I'm seeing.....I'm going to struggle to justify £100 for a steering wheel set.

Will be buying Assetto Corsa this week sometime... and idea how big the Download is?
