AccuForce Wheel - Sneak Peek from Honda Indy Toronto & More

One of the greatest sim racing experiences for me was when I was able to go to Sim Xperience and try out the new Accuforce wheel first hand.  That was already 6 months ago and the wheel has been going through continuous testing ever since.



 Recently the team behind the Accuforce wheel went to the Grand Prix of Toronto and had their wheels being used on the sims in the Honda booth.  I talked to Berney of Sim Xperience about this event and he told me that over 1500 people were able to drive the wheel.  I can tell you from my experiences that these events are torture tests for hardware and that is about as good a shake down for durability as you can do.  The wheels performed perfectly and brings us one step closer to them being available to the public.  




Here is the write up from the Sim Xperience website about that event:
We've been consumer abuse testing the AccuForce this weekend at the Honda Indy event in Toronto.
If you've been reading the blog, then you'll know that this isn't the first sneak peak we've offered of the AccuForce wheel.
 However, I managed to get a few pictures that better illustrate the aluminum motor enclosure and hint at the final appearance so I thought I would share them here.

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.
