Is there place for someone who rarely plays this, does not know the tracks and probably brakes far too often and early/late?

 

You can't be slower than me and they haven't stopped me joining in yet :D

Out of interest, how many people were using wheels on Monday? I’m debating buying one, perhaps a G29.

I'm on a Thrustmaster T300 RS. Think about 50 to 75% of people in our group are on wheels?

 

If you're interested in getting a wheel and looking to spend similar (or maybe slightly less) money compared to a G29, I would certainly recommend that T300 RS - it's got better force feedback (motorised rather than Logitech's belt-driven tech if I'm correct).

From the sound of flappy paddles over the party chat, I'd guess almost everyone!

 

I've got a Thrustmaster T150. The wheel is good but the stock pedals, while adequate, aren't brilliant.

 

I've only used a friend's G29 very briefly and it was perfectly good. The stock G29 pedals are a bit more well-regarded than the base-spec Thrustmaster ones. There are three of them, although you won't use the clutch unless you spend out for the optional Logitech gear lever (which is a lot cheaper than the respective Thrustmaster gearshifter).

 

There's a separate racing wheel thread elsewhere in Discussion, although I imagine the Venn diagram of people interested in that thread and this one is approaching a perfect circle!

We’ve got a cosy little club at the back tbh :)

  

 

In all seriousness, bearing in mind that there were people waiting on standby on Monday - if it gets to a point where there are too many closely-matched racers for the lobby, I don't mind sitting out to give someone more competitive a slot.

And that used to be me!

 

Still favouring a pad at the moment, really need to knuckle down with the t150 and get some laps in with that, especially as it's been one of my projects to get the pedal base clamped to the playseat challenge better than the crappy Velcro strap supplied:

I've literally just panic bought a PS4 and T300 RS before the lockdown. I had ordered a T150 but the delivery driver nicked it, so I went all in as the T300 was available sooner.

I think the G29 and T150 are gear driven, so more notchy and noisy, whereas the T300 is belt-drive so a bit smoother. The best ones are direct drive (so you're basically mounting the wheel to a motor) but are waaay more expensive, because you need a much more powerful motor when you're not using any gearing.

Is there a good resource for car tuning / setup? I’d like to have seen an option to download setups but it doesn’t look like there is one.

If anyone needs a G29 that works with PC games only let me know.  Mine keeps quitting back to dashboard on PS4 when I turn the wheel at a specific angle and the motor kicks in.  Very frustrating but on PC you can disable the buttons and it works as normal!

I'm sure you've thought of this but is there any way to upgrade the G29 firmware? Maybe that would fix it.

 

I know you can on Thrustmaster wheels - my T150 didn't work at all on PC until I'd reflashed it - but is there anything similar from Logitech?

Afraid not - G29 does not have any firmware in it I believe :(

Awesome! You'll love it. The T150 is a decent wheel but the 300 is a very nice step up.

Some chatter in the PSN Messenger group about car selection for this Monday (the "pre-1975 N300" stipulation).

 

For me there's only one choice and my mind is already made up. The only thing now is to find the right livery! :D

What’s the list of choices so I don’t have to make a panic decision on Monday? Will tuning be on? (Preferably not...)

I think Joe said he had a waiting list on Monday.

 

If it comes down to it I've already said I don't mind standing aside to make room for more competitive drivers, and I won't be offended to be asked :)

Let's see what happens. If we get more than 16 players again, I'm sure we can split lobbies to accommodate all interested players :)

 

For instance @mexos and @PeteBrant (we've been missing you recently!) have hosting experience with similar settings, and I'm sure for instance @marsh could do the same.

 

Or @beenabadbunny could host a lobby - I'll be happy to share to base settings for rllmuk online racing again!

And walks away from there to a Mazda showroom. 12.5 million is a bit too rich for my wallet!

The mazda is a good choice.

 

For the first time in the game I've started to faff about with setups. I see where I might have found some more time....

Seems a shame there's no diddlers like Minis and Cortinas for some classic Goodwood battles with the heavy stuff.

Tuning yes, so you can muck about a bit with anti roll bars, aero and gear ratio's.

 

Upgrading (weight and power) not so much, this will be restricted by BoP as per usual.

Does BoP work? I’ve tried a couple of cars with it on and there’s over 10 seconds difference to my lap times! 10 seconds!!

 

Edit: Found 8 seconds, I did think it might be gearing...but in the game you don’t bounce off the limiter in top for some reason, it just gradually stops accelerating which I assumed was the car‘s blunt aerodynamics limiting the top speed, it was the gearing though.

^ cars from the same class? just checking.

 

been trying to get back into racing games a bit, thought i'd give this a try, checks weekly timetrials - you need to buy the car to enter, the first car is 2.8m, the second one is 20m. i have 0.3m - guess i'm not doing those!

A lot of us from this thread have been known to use the daily races as a kind of unofficial time trial contest. If you add people to your friends list and then do qualifying laps for the daily races, their best quali lap will be listed against yours. It's a bit hacky but it's something.
