I split screened a lap on Iracing in the Pontiac solstice with a lap from the festival weekend and the brake points and shift points are pretty damn close. Check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVB5ktauQ5Y

Kyle, that is very cool! I just installed iRacing and I'm hoping to hook up some speakers this weekend and give it a test drive. Driving without speakers, I wasn't able to even get around 1 lap at Laguna. [Smile]

I know there are a handful of other SFR guys who do it... I'll post my ID once I figure out what it is.

Nice work Kyle. Iracing is great. Try the Mustang FR500s, it's a blast to race.

How do you guys like iRacing compared to Gran Turismo? I am trying to decide which to go with. With the Logitech G25 or G27 wheel/pedals and maybe the brake pedal cheat, is this really a tool to help learn tracks in the off-season or does this play like a video game (stab and steer)?

I love the Gran Tourismo series, but it doesn't have Mid Ohio in it. The graphics look way better in the new GT5.

Thoughts?

iRacing makes GT5 feel like a 80's arcade game... its MILES better

I'll second what Skeer said, WAY BETTER! For learning tracks NOTHING is as acurate as iRacing! All the consoles have never had the feel of PC Sim racing. They get better everytime but the PC is always ahead! Now with iRacing it is no CONTEST!

Not seeing much difference between the G25 and G27. If I can find a lightly used G25 for a deal, is that o.k. or do you recommend a new G27?

The g25 has a dead zone in the force feedback when your wheel is centered, really thats the only major difference. I have had my g25 for two years i think and it still works great.

I thought this is why we bought race cars, was to race REAL cars.

Kyle, The video is way cool.

Al, You got it backwards. We buy the race cars to help us with our iRacing.

Make sure you get the brake pedal load cell mod:

The apelectrix site says that he is temporarily stopping production. That was back in April. Is this guy still making/selling these?

I use a shaved big eraser... took about 5 minutes to shave it down, works fine for me. only cost like $3, thats basically what the mod is anyway.

The apelectrix and perfect pedal say that they are pressure chips and do not use the potometer. Doesn't sound like the eraser cheat to me.

The load cell brake mods are much more realistic. They are pressure sensitive just like real brakes. You need something like this to do heel toe. I've never tried the eraser thing.
