Default Racing games and how to play them.

What are you guys playing currently and with what (controller, MS sport wheel, racing rig, etc)?

I'm enjoying Forza 4 and Horizon. I just finished my racing "cockpit" setup. My father and I are having a blast. It's pretty damn cool.

Racing a manual with Clutch pedel and shifter is so realistic. Using a PS3/PC shifter with a custom adapter to work with XBox. H-pattern shifter 7 gears plus reverse. All works correctly as well.

Seat has a Buttkicker 2 installed for vibration feedback as well (not on in video). Only thing that could make this more awesome is 3 xbox's and 3 screens.







Skip to about the minute mark to see it in action. I made this video for a few other guys so you can ignore all the talk. This was the first race after getting it setup so enjoy all the mistakes I made.

You can't even afford the range fee for tonight so I think you may want to relax.

Sick setup! What company makes that shifter?

Still using this equipment but its not hooked up to that TV anymore. I now have it setup on a 120" projector. I only have PS3 and love playing Gran Turismo. I will be upgrading the surround sound system soon.


Only pic I have of the new setup. I'll take more once its done.

Digging yours as well. My components are as follows:

Fanatec CSR Wheel
Fanatec CSR Pedals w/ inversion kit and Basherboards Pedal Filter board
Thrustmaster TH8RS shifter
Basherboards SFA1 adapter for the shifter
rSeat RS EVO V3 Cockpit
Buttkicker 2
Astro A40 gaming headphones

The Thrustmaster is really for PC/PS3, but this guy designed an adapter to use it with XBox which is awesome. If you watch the beginning of the first video before I race I grab the Fanatec Porsche H shifter and you can see the difference in feel and quality.

Here's the video I made before racing to show the setup for anyone interested. I still need to clean up and organize all the wiring. I just wanted to confirm it all worked first.
