Oh man, I always wanted to have one too. Especially since I have PSVR, it probably would be pretty sick to play racing games!

Neat, never really tried VR myself (besides a small rollercoaster demo). Will let you know if the wheel lives up to the positive reviews.

Also off-topic: the TMX logo font looks a lot like the TMS logo.

Should arrive in a few hours ::3:
Bought Assetto Corsa because apparently it's one of the best racing games with a steering wheel.
Will of course also try Forza Horizon 4. (And the Forza Motorsport 7 demo)

Oh man am I loving this wheel so far.
It's bloody fantastic in Dirt Rally and F1 2017.

Cool setup! Racing gaming chair when? :biggrin:
If it were up to me I'd buy one in an instant. However our apartment is pretty small and I already got 5 times as much shit as my girlfriend.. I'll wait and see how cramped my "work" room will be once we're moved into the apartment :laugh:
I have to admit though that a normal desk chair (the one I have now) is far from ideal:



Not the exact model but 99% the same.

Please allow me to get better first. Also doesn't the T300RS also have force feedback? I thought it was a much better wheel.

That looks super fun :biggrin: Does it manage to simulate actual driving at all?

It comes pretty close actually! The force feedback is pretty good.
I drove on some of the actual circuits in games like Project Cars 2 and Asseto Corsa and of course it's not 100% like the real thing but it does a pretty good job.

If you want to simulate 99% you'll need a direct drive system. Do note that these can break your arm if you crash into a wall...

These things start at €1500 (for the base only, no wheel, pedals,..)
