  1. its 6.5cm. Think that’s pretty average?
  2. I’m trying to get used to the Rift S again. Have found eating some ginger chews and making sure I’ve got a strong fan on me help a lot! Don’t feel like I’ve got the fit sorted yet though, it’s still quite blurry. Angling it lower so it sits right on my nose seems to be the sweet spot but it’s really uncomfortable like that! Any other suggestions?! I’ve set the IPD thing. Should I be using the little forward and back adjustment on the little button at the front? Not really sure what that’s for in truth.
  3. Those with a Rift S, do you get steam on the lenses? Im still struggling to get over the queasy feeling with this, which inevtiably also means getting warm, and then the fog happens! Wondering if I'm doing something wrong.
  4. Yeah, could be a good shout. I dont really have time to play more than one game though. I'd rather be racing right now (or squeezing in some D2 from time to time).
  5. Skip Barber, so nothing too crazy yet. Driving incredibly slowly too just to try VR.
  6. Tried the Rift S again last night after a couple of days off. I seem to get steam on the lenses right in the middle quite consistently! I managed one lap of Spa in iRacing going incredibly slowly in 2nd gear before turning it off. The motion sickness seems to be getting me quite easily with this. Not sure if I just need to persist with a little more every night or if this isnt going to work for me.
  7. Yeah, I think I tried to push on it a bit last night and that clearly didn’t work! keen to get used to it as it seemingly adds a hell of a lot to driving games. Really interested to see what it does to my times in the long run too.
  8. Entered the world of VR last night with a Rift S. Wow, talk about immersion. My brain couldn’t cope though and I felt sick after less than two laps! Try again tonight.
  9. I felt a bit sick after one lap to be honest. Jumped on again a couple of hours later and it was the same. Settings should be good and the computer I’m running is fairly strong (Ryzen 3600 and a 2070 Super).
  10. Tried the Rift tonight. Set up thing with the robot was very impressive. Jumped into iRacing after that and yeah, I feel sick! Tried to do a couple of laps but got very hot very quickly. Bleurgh! Hopefully some persistence with it over the coming week will pay off. From the little time I spent with it I was pretty impressed though.
  11. Timely thread given my Rift S tunred up this afternoon. I have literally never tried VR before so this could be interesting! I've got it basically to play iRacing - I dont have the space really for a triple screen setup and a proper firm rig right now so figured this would be worth exploring. Hoping it goes well!
  12. Yeah, I'm also not running ACC. Just iRacing for me (one game is about all I have time for these days!).
  13. You remember correctly! I'm sure it took me ages with the original version of these pedals to get used to them but I dont seem to be having the same problem here. You can adjust the stiffness pretty easily and I'm even using the clutch pedal for the first time ever!
  14. Best? You are probably looking at something like this: https://fanatec.com/eu-en/bundles/podium-racing-wheel-formula-for-xbox-one-pc Or the step up to this: https://fanatec.com/eu-en/racing-wheels-wheel-bases/wheel-bases/podium-wheel-base-dd2 (no actual wheel included there though). Obviously very expensive though, and to run a direct drive wheel you need a very sturdy setup.
  15. Racing lines are always shit. The braking points are usually way off and it masively takes away from the immersion. In other news my CSL elite pedals with loadcell brake turned up yesterday. Got them set up pretty quickly for once and immediately felt great on iRacing. I've not used CSL pedals for a while but from memory the loadcell on these is a big step up from the ones I had previously. Much easier to tweak as well - recommended!
  16. That’s the one I was considering. £400 doesn’t seem too ridiculous.
  17. Which VR headset are you running @Thor? I’ve never given VR a go before but starting to think it might be a good addition for iRacing.
  18. Slightly different, but I also love Crew Chief and Racelab apps for iRacing. Both add so much to the game.
  19. I switched cars tonight (still using the free ones) and had two really fun races. It really encourages you to plan which series you are going to drive in each week, which is good for someone like me who would rather learn one car and track combo really well and get some super close racing as a result.
  20. I'm still quite new to it and to be fair that race last night had some lower ranked people behind me. It's worth dipping your toes in I reckon, just to see if its for you (let me know if you do and I can send you a referral code ). To provide some balance, I've had some incredible laps of consistent pace with front runners, biding my time in order to spot a moment to make a pass without risking a collision. When it's good it's really good (and that's just in the free MX5's).
  21. I guess if you signed up for a cheap month or two then you might not give a sh*t. I think you get people doing this stuff no matter what the model. I got shunted in a rolling start last night, which was a new low
  22. Ok, that sounds do-able!
  23. Nice to see this thread is pretty busy. I've been carrying on with iRacing since my last post. Mixed results - I thought improving my iRating would also mean racing better drivers, but whilst there are fast people in my splits now there are still some idiots that seem intent on winning it in the first corner. I've been taken out on multiple occasions as a result. How do I post pics on this forum? Never have got the hang of it but will share my current setup if someone can give me some help!
  24. Yeah I'm the same at the moment. After work has finished and kids have gone to bed I'm watching videos and doing some racing, its great! I really want a proper setup now though - I'm talking a really rigid cockpit frame, triple screens etc. Not sure that will ever happen but something to think about if we ever actually get a house move done and I have the space/budget left.
