    Thanks for in game settings and I will start with the suggested settings. It was so distracting to the point of unplayable with everything shimmering. I will let you know later how things turn out.

    Happy to report cleaned old drivers installed new ones and changed to suggested settings with small tweak and looks good. Now I can enjoy driving and not constantly adjusting settings

    Okay, I found the solution I have a 32:9 Monitor. I have to change the resolution manually in advance before starting in VR. Field of view for instance is set automatically to 1 but not the resolution.
    but how about the refreshrate for the monitor while in VR? 60, 120,144hz does it matter?

    what is actually the best sound setting for VR? couldn't find anything about this. In the menu of Raceroom one can select "stereo, headphone, Dolby Surround" etc. does it matter for the headset or not? i have the Valve Index. thanks

    Valve index, nice! How bad are the godrays in R3E with this headset and is it easy to keep it in the sweet spot? (Sorry don't know the answer to your question)
