That's a bother. The pedal doesn't change the mapping of the G27 does it? OR does it show up as separate controller?

I'm using a bodnar cable so the pedals are going straight to the PC instead of through the wheel. iRacing found all pedals fine and GSC found both potentiometers fine. I guess I should look for a load cell type setting in pedal setup.

Hmm, that's strange. My current setup is everything on one controller, but prior to this I ran multiple controllers which was no problem for rFactor (didn't have GSC at the time).

I know GSC can only run 3 USB inputs but the clutch and throttle are detected so that can't be the issue. I couldn't find any settings in GSC that helped so I'll probably ask in the racedepartment thread. Right now I'm concentrating on finishing my requirements to get out of Rookies in iRacing. I want to try the Spec Racer road series and trucks for ovals next season.

Though I won't patronize iRacing, I have to admit I would like to take it for a spin sometime to see what the fuss is all about.

Anyone tried the Assetto Corsa tech preview?

Next seasons' schedule was just released. The D class Spec Racer Ford series uses the 8 free tracks. That keeps buy-in low and should up participation. I picked up enough tracks to run the whole SRF season plus half seasons of Indycar and oval trucks. I've never raced ovals before so it should be interesting.

I'm tempted to go to Long Beach Friday afternoon for Indycar practice. I'd like to see the new bodystyle up close.

Do it!

I really liked Long Beach when I followed Champ Car many years ago. The nice thing about Champ Car (and I'm assuming Indycar which I have never followed since George destroyed both series) was that it was so much more accessible than F1.

After the Vancouver race, back in the 90's, I was walking past the used tires truck and asked the guy what they did with the tires. He said they all got shredded. So I asked him if I could have a couple. He shrugged and said "sure". So we walked home from the race wearing rear tires like a barrel. I got two round pieces of glass to fit in the middle and made tables out of them. I gave one to my buddy who couldn't go to the race - but I still love mine.

But I have to say I hate the look of the latest generations of Indycar. They remind me of mosquitoes buzzing around in circles.

That tire table is awesome!

Really looking forward doing some endurance again. This will be first time with driver changes!

Wow, a 6 hour race. How often are you planning to swap?

Dunno. Three drivers in my team we haven´t started talking strategy yet but will be about 2h for us all I recon which isn´t that hard really. Not if you have a cockpit I remember the buttache when being in an office chair lol. If we will do it in one stint or diversify dunno pros and cons with both.There is no upper limit of drivers per team but I think most will be two or three man teams.

Two 1 hour shifts seems quite doable. Good luck!


Got a DSD button box today. My keyboard is under the table when racing so this will be quite useful.

Sucks about the race, but cool DSD BB. I agree it's a major pain figuring out how to mount a keyboard and mouse in a way that works with a sim wheel.


oqvist, that sounds like a fun race. Lots of pressure not to be the guy who puts it in the wall on hour 5. biggrin.gif

True but it helps when you race with friends. I have a good score on finishing endurances however this time I am the weak link I believe...

It´s a beast of a car too even with TC and SC help I am still struggling with it. Been doing to much Power and Glory racing. Such difference between race cars of yesterday and today.

I wouldn´t say todays electronics aided cars are easier to drive just a helluva lot faster :)

 

Okay with some exceptions the DeTomaso Pantera is a pure monster. And Vintage corvettes on a technical track hello insanity... I really really dig rFactor 2 physics though. It´s a new generation that´s for sure.

For F1 wheel lovers with deeeeep pockets, a T500 F1 wheel with useable dials and a display up top. All for the low price of almost a thousand bucks.
