So the wheel tech isn't sorted out yet enough to keep up with the software side of these units?I'm going to build a gaming PC

just for this usage. I guess more time is needed to allow software and steering wheel to more bond for performance. I've watched some 3D on youtube and am very interested to have a go at this for off track training.

They work fine, just if you buy a more advanced setup expect to spend more time trying to work out the intricacies. My Logitech stuff is 100% plug and play. And it works totally fine. It’s not the best, but it’s plenty enough imo. And if you outgrow it, can always sell it for a descent amount and upgrade.

Also if you're not planning on having a dedicated sim rig and are going to be using the computer for other things, make sure you have a desk that can support the desk clamp. I currently am using the keyboard tray on my desk and it's not great.

Another thing to consider is the brake pedal that comes with the fanatec csl package requires a lot of force so I'm going to have to fab something to mount it so it won't slide around. This wouldn't be an issue if I had a sim rig because I could just mount it to that, but because I'm just using my desk it's now an issue.

Back in my drumming days the bass liked to run away during hard rock/metal songs. We would use bricks, cinderblocks, younger siblings, or guitar amps to keep them in place.

I just don't want something permanent, I need the flexibility to move it out of the way when I'm not using them.
