More likely gear or belt driven. G920, correct? DD wheels typically start at 1k.

2 years ago I decided against buying a sim set up and here I sit and I'm still interested so I decided to buy something. And now I'm doing what I always do..."for a little more money I could have this instead!" Actually ordered a CSL elite and cancelled it to order the DD. Now I'm waffling again.

I just want it to be worth the upgrade. If I can get 90% of the feel for 50% of th cost, I could use that money on a sim PC, especially if the PS5 doesn't support current gen peripherals.

Also, are you still using your set up 2 years on?

There havent been any new releases since the g920, correct? I really want to upgrade from my logitech ferrari wheel. But I dont know where to start. After my track day this weekend even Forza would be better than nothing for good practice hitting apexes and learning car control.

Ideally id go :fullretard: and spend 3k on a setup. But thats a couple track days I could do instead.

like I said I don't play enough, and my setup is baller as fuck compared to a controller.

turn off all the driving aids and put it on simulation, add a litt dead zone to steering And you are good

If you're into Xbox, look at the Fanatec clubsport v2.5

I'm selling my sim stuff, haven't used it in over a year and it's all in my way.

This stuff is on ebay now, except for the Bodin load cell mod for the T3PA pedals which is still available offline for $100.

I've got a Logitech wheel and pedals I bought years ago to "race" but never got around to building a rig to use them. Perhaps now is the time...

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.
