    You need a screen dedicated to it for best results, although it will still collect telemetry data in the background. I have a screen mounted above my racing screen for second monitor. If you have a spare display port of any kind you should be able to hook up a screen, or if not try a usb3 to hdmi adapter, they work well for this kind of thing.

    In order for me to do that i'd need a 4th display which I don't have unfortunately. I could just tab out in between a few laps during a qualifying run to check a few things since its too hard to read and drive lol.

    Sadly not any time soon. I can only support the sims that I play (atleast occasionally). And with the spare time I have, and the size of my gaming backlog :D, I just cannot justify a subscription based sim.

    But the project is open source, so if anyone wants to make an IRacing adapter, he is more than welcomed ;)

    I fully understand. I have shied away from iracing due to the cost but recently jumped back in and I'm loving it. The online structure brings so much to the table....

    I wouldn't have a clue how to do such a thing so hopefully someone else can step in....
