Yeah, my first question was going to be what steering wheel should I buy, but there's already a thread on page 1 about that. Problem is that it doesn't give me a clear answer! Lol, well the clear answer is the g25, but I can't afford that. Currently using my little ps2 style logitech rumblepad 2 - think it's worth upgrading to a wheel? Anyway.. I'm sure I'll figure something out.
Well, it all depends on what you want to spend ofcourse. The G25 looks like it will be great, but it's not cheap. Although there are far more expensive ones out there.
I think the best wheel for an affordable price is the DFP. I've got a MOMO racing myself. I like it, but it has a lot of problems which you will eventually run into. So I wouldn't recommend it because of that. (My pedals don't work properly anymore for instance, but I must say Logitech service is very good in my experience, they're sending me a new set )
I'd say you learn most and fastest online. But yes, I recommend some practice on a certain car/track combo first.
Mainly to learn the track. There's no sense going online if you don't know what corner comes next for instance.
Most people don't mind beginners being slower, but being a hazard is another thing.
Just practice to the point where you know the track, and you can drive consistent times (not necessarily fast) on it.
I host a racing group each Monday evening racing either GP Legends or GT Legends. We've been running for just over one year. We are a flight sim squadron just turning three years flying Wednesday evenings. Now my new chore is convincing the others to try this sim so I can then get us into Live for Speed on Monday evenings.
Well Ive finally got the full version and i must say it certianlly lives up to the screen shots and the videos Ive viewed on the LFS Website. I havent played online yet as Im familimarising myself with the awesomely powered cars and downloading new setups to be able to keep up with the veterans. I must say there are going to be some sleepless nights for the next month of so. Good luck to us S2 LFS Noobs
Hi to all who've posted their introductions I'm new like you guys (just had my first online S2 race last night), and it's great to be here. I remember hearing about LFS maybe a few years back(?) - I went to the website, checked out some of the screenshots, thought it looked good, but didn't download. There was some hype about the game, but I decided I wasn't interested in sim-racing. Reading a few positive comments on the tweakguides forum a few months ago re-ignited my curiousity for LFS (at the time I was into Trackmania Nations, a fun game I was good at, and TOCA 3). I downloaded the demo- and the rest is history. LFS to me now is like the girl that you never really noticed before, but suddenly, you're obsessed! I can now imagine a long rich relationship stretching miles ahead of me. Racing, leagues, new friends, setups, strategies, physics, skins, code improvements, mods, textures, expansions... LFS holds out so much. Now I know why they call it "Live" for speed...
