    No need to apologize my dear VR friend. :) I've seen a lot worse.
    There's this dude out there that is highjacking every comment thread on bsimracing (and sometimes on racedepartment) and tells his amazing stories about his AccuForce and his VR headset and his buttkickers and his motion plattform and what not... :D

    Just want to say that Sim Racing for me is like living a dream.
    If someone has told the little FormelLMS 30 Years ago (while he was playing with many many toy cars around the christmas tree) that he would sit in a few years in a digitalized car and could drive it with a wheel with feedback from the road and pedals and so on, this little charming guy couldn't have sleep for ages.

    So I can only say: A dream come true for people like me, having only cars in the head and petrol in the veins and not so much money in the purse to drive in real those cars. Especially, and thats the point, since VR and DD. The next step is really this damn f*kn buttkicker thing^^

    I am not car or racing enthusiast, but I love driving simulators. Anything that uses computer and screens with a few pieces of hardware is something I enjoy the most. Flight sim is good too but there is no FFB :D

    Lol, sry but this is unintentionally hillarious for my taste, total overkill :D. Absolutely satisfied with some good old fashioned simracing fun, never intended to apply to NASA, or to constantly puke while driving, my goodness :D

    Possibly. If I could devote time to racing again, who knows. For now, I don't miss what I've never had.

    For flight sims incl. Old School WW2 dogfight action it might be cool - tho I don't wanna know much you have to pay for such a rig (incl. practice room/workshop, cause neighbors might get crazy in a regular flat :D)

    I’m pretty middle of the road and have a Fanatec CSL elite with the Mclaren rim. Had it for about a year now and it was certainly a huge upgrade from the cheap Thrustmaster T150 I had before. The CSL has been amazing - I’ve never tried a DD wheel, so I don’t know what I’m missing, but I’m more than happy with my setup and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade from an entry level TM or Logitech wheel. I do also have a cockpit though, so things are very rigidly mounted, which I think is pretty important and often gets overlooked.

    Right now I'm using a Fanatec CSR with the basic non-loadcell CSR pedals. I definitely want to upgrade in the future. I was thinking of getting a CSL with the CSL loadcell pedals, but I kind of want to get off the Fanatec train. Plus I believe getting a CSL to replace my CSR would mostly be a lateral move, and not an upgrade. I've got some time. I'm going to save my pennies and make a move when all is right.

    TS PC wheel, using the formula rim at present, but have a couple of others (Sparco, Ferrari). Use the T3PA-Pro pedals modified with load cell.
