Default Anyone still sim racing?

Finally brought a wheel back to Madagascar. Playing L4S, RFactor2 and some iRacing practice type stuff thought he latency is too terrible to race via iRacing.

Considering picking up an Oculus DK2 to complement the ~3 year old setup but we shall see.

Anyone out there still sim racing? Which sim do you prefer? Any mods you run that a guy should consider?

I still enjoy iracing a lot, but I haven't had time to play between going to work and wrenching on the chump car.

Got the htc vive and car seat setup myself. The htc will make me nauseous after 15 minutes. I read something about changing the horizon settings to help with that but I have not had time to really play with the chump race coming up.

The games look better on the monitors than the VR. But the VR is pretty cool. I can play other games without the motion sickness, the driving one does me in.

3 year old comp probably wont cut it for VR.

Always liked codemaster games, but got Project Cars when the VR support was added.

That's kinda what I was thinking lol, I considered selling it but I was just to busy/lazy to put it on eBay. The dk2 is in fort Saskatchewan but I'm in Texas for god knows how long. I'm sure I could arrange something though.

I still have a playseat and a wheel, and I upgraded my PC to kickass status this winter, but I can't see myself signing up until wintertime. Having too much fun outside the house right now

Kinda the same. Haven't touched my sim rig in a couple months, but I expect to after the season is over.

Damn you guys and your racetracks and roads.

If someone wants to setup an iRacing league this winter I'll do my best to participate.

I might get back into this to shake off whatever rust has developed from not racing for a year.

It's extremely painful not racing.
