Does anybody have a good sim racing set up they recommend?

I have the Thrustmaster TS-PC wheel and T3PA Pro pedals. I think the kit runs about $700. If I were buying now I’d get the loadcell pedal set.

At the megabuck level I think Fanatec is the way to go.

Around $300 the Logitech and Thrustmaster offerings are well reviewed.

If you’re going to spend extra money do a load cell brake set before budging more for the wheel - the brake can actually make your faster.

For the screen I have a 32” screen that’s maybe 30” from my nose. Field of view is alright.

The response above is also solid assuming you have the budget and space / and an understanding significant other


Yeah the space Isa huge requirement. Luckily I have a good sized basement for my office/sim setup. I think I was able to win my wife over by saying I'll always be home in the basement pretending to race vs out drinking and doing something stupid. Seems to have worked out well.

You didn’t name your budget 🤣


Really depends on your budget. I had a G29 clamped to a desk for a while which is a great starter wheel, then moved to a Playseat Challenge with T300RS and T-LCM loadcell pedals (great bang for your buck setup, everything above will be diminishing returns).

I sold everything to move a few months ago but I plan on upgrading to an aluminium chassis with an ultrawide monitor (triples are better but take a lot of space and are more annoying to setup), and a direct drive wheel (Simucube sport or Fanatec DD1) + Fanatec v3 or Heusinkveld Sprint pedals.


Thanks for the info - super helpful!

I have only seen him outside twice (one of those times he was shirtless watering the grass 🤪), but I haven't seen him since. He was even wearing a dangly earring & smiled at me 😍. I want to meet him but I don't know how if he isn't outside! What am I to do?

I have a feeling this season is going to be even more amazing than the last one. It might be a 3-way or 4-way race for the drivers championship. It’s going to be a street fight tomorrow.

Forza Ferrari!!
