I am currently on a G25. I only have 2 complaints. 1 is that it only has 2 buttons on the wheel. 2 is that it can be very noisy going straight. Its not always noisy but it can be when the road is very flat. Even a little camber will keep it quiet. I notice that Monza is very noisy.

I had a G27. loved it for years on PC and Ps3. Then the Ps4 came out and Sony were A-Holes and stopped the G27 working so you had to but the G29. Which I eventually did early last year as a load of friends were racing on Ps4. Then I bought a custom rim upgrade

And then about 2 months ago I decided enough was enough, and invested in a Fanatec F1 Podium Wheel with the DD1 and in a word.... WOW

Fired GT Sport back up after about 3 months away. Ended up winning an epic at a wet Spa in which I made the wrong tyre choice in a GT3 race.

The track wasn't as wet as I first believed and so I made the wrong tyre choice by going for full wets.

It wasn't so bad for the first few laps until I started burning through them, ended up having an epic finish with a TT who was on Inters.

He kept his tyres in good shape and had way more rubber at the end, things got a bit tasty but I somehow held on for the win.

Just can't beat nail biters like that.

I was on the limit big time, really on the edge using controller with no traction control on.

I just switched over to PC a few months ago and made the jump to iRacing. I also picked up a Fanatec CSL base and Mclaren wheel. I previously was on PS4 playing Project cars with a T300. So far I am loving the game and the new wheel.

Yeah iRacing is great isn't it. Unfortunately I don't get much time on there now as I'm busy with a league on the Ps4 as all my friends play that. I will slowly get them all to switch over to iRacing eventually though 8)

Does anyone have any tips/recommendations for a first timer buying a rig? Don't have a budget but after playing a few racing games at a expo I want to invest in one for my games room! Just want some recommendations from people with experience?

Nice, I had a Pcars 1 & 2 league on PS4 for several years. when I made the switch I let some of the other guys take it over.

You need to decide what platform (PC or console). PC gives you the most options but can get expensive fast if you don't plan carefully. Buy the best equipment you can afford (wheel and pedals). Buying a cheap wheel and pedals and then upgrading means you are going to spend the money twice.

Thanks mate, Its out in the garage which is detached from the house, so I can make as much noise as I like and no disturb the kids while they sleep :D

I did have some nice race tracks to put up on the wall out there, but the wife was fine with them going in the living room as we are in the middle of redecorating the living room.

As for the new wheel upgrade in the mancave, its sooooo good, couldn't recommend it enough! Just need to paint the metal frame its on, I had to strengthen the whole rig as it was flexing a little as the new Wheel can produce up to 20Nm of torque compared to about 3Nm the Logitech used to produce!!
