Thank you, Shaun, and because of your thorough review I ended up with my Rseat N1, which I love.

Quit simply, I think 2017 will be split between two main stories.  First, I believe by the end of the year one of the major sim racing companies will come out with, or at least announce, a direct drive wheel.  Secondly, we'll see a doubling of not only the number of games using VR, but of the games' quality, as well.  I think it is going to be a great year for our hobby/passion!

Raceroom made big improvements and is now, at the end of 2016, a real contender on the market!

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.
