Make sure you get a big TV. If your using VR it's brilliant but a PC is much better than Xbox or PS4.

I have the logitec wheel and peddles 2020 version.

Hope you enjoy it. Great way to practice tracks...

Tried it all for the first time yesterday, with the logitech g920 full setup. Not sure I like the stalling aspect of the game if you happen to be off the racing line, that doesn't happen in real life. Also the wheel trying to pull you off the racing line is very unrealistic but hey ho it is what it is. A lot of fun though. Lee do you have any favourite cars apart from the caterham?

Mine doesn't stall like that anymore, Think you may need to slow down and set the car up for your driving style and fully warm tyres up, never got on with the r500 to be honest. if I drive smoothly I don't get any issues with the sr3, but your really need to set the car up properly. not sure if the Xbox / pc or playstation effects it... Some of my mates got rid of Xbox and station and got PC set ups and said it's much better.

Logitec is belt driven so does feel a bit odd but of your lines are smooth and your not stressing the cars it's smooth on my set up.

Yes I've set up the radical sr3 hayabusa myself. My driving style is quite rough when I get on it and the radical seems to take it well. Taken me about 2 months to get right but that's with about 3 hours a week online.

I race with a bunch of BEC owners using ginetta gts. They shared there set up so I didn't have to tweak it..

When you say it doesn't stall anymore, makes me realise what I suspected. I was suspicious that "experience " was built in to the games programme, and that is definitely the case. So I guess it's just a case of time. It's going to get easier!
