    Steering Wheel Range

    I like it a bit less than the guys here and go for 320/330. Mainly 320 for the more nadgery tracks like Singapore and Monaco. The whole steering lock debate in F1 gets a bit heated but it's really driver preference. I know some guys who swear by 450, others who prefer 360, and some who go for 270.

    F1 2020 Codemasters Anti Cheat Measures

    So all this is rubbish then? https://simrace247.com/2020/07/15/codemasters-do-something-f1-2020-multiplayer-cheats-revealed/ It took me all of 2-3 minutes to find a forum explaining exactly how to spoof the online "protection".

    Any update? It's been over a month and time trial and event leaderboards are still populated with impossible times.

    Performance Patch coming soon?

    Never underestimate how petty any marketing department can be. Marketing won't give a monkeys about race performance, all they care about is corporate image. Race performance is down to the team themselves who in turn won't give a monkey's about perception.

    I'm sure it has absolutely nothing to do with Ferraris death grip on the series. Nothing at all. No siree. Allow me this one conspiracy theory.

    New Logitech wheel (G923)

    Remember 80kg is the rated capacity of the load cell so that's the absolute maximum. You can set it much lower in the setup page. Mines set to around 60kg but you can set it far lower. The Fanatec software adjusts it with the BRF setting on the wheel (if you plug it in via the wheel base without plugging in the serparate USB cable on the pedals), and can also be adjusted in the fanatec software on the controller page.

    New Logitech wheel (G923)

    Speaking from my own experience I found the basic Fanatec CSL elite a big step up from the Logitech G920. To be honest it might even be worth just buying the CSL pedals with the load cell kit first as I found they made the biggest difference in my driving. Don't get me wrong the wheel base is a lot better (I also found it way way easier to set up than using that gammy logitech software), but it was a decent brake pedal that made me more consistent. The load cell brake is well worth the extra money. I seriously doubt I'll even go as far as direct drive stuff mainly due to the cost. In all, I think my setup cost around £500 (not including the extra wheels I bought). Still expensive granted, but not that much more than the cost of this logitech stuff now. However, I do play on PC so I think we have more options available to us.

    @marioho It will be interesting to see what they've actually done to it. No doubt Barry from Sim Racing Garage will pry one open to see what's different. Hopefully more than just a rubber bung like the last one.

    It doesn't seem worth the price. I never had an issue with Logitech's wheels, but the pedals are awful. All the guys who got bitten by the simracing bug during lockdown and then realised they aren't Ayrton Senna are selling their expensive gear so you will probably find quite a few bargains at the moment.

    Whos fault is this at Spa ? ( discussion )

    So not only dangerous but belligerent to boot. That response is shocking. The kind of person that says “I’ve been driving 40 years and never had an accident”... because they’ve never looked at the carnage they leave behind in their rear view mirror.

    @dshepsman Good god. Did he get out of the pitlane with all four limbs or were you forced to pluck them off like a daddy long legs? What did the stewards have to say about that one?

    100% on the race leader. If he wanted to block he should have done so quickly, not squeeze the guy into the wall. Regardless, continuing to squeeze was always going to lead to a crash. Self preservation should have made him block the inside, not the outside. More baffling is that if he'd just let him pass he'd have a straight coming up to retake the position safely. Bone headed move.

    F1 2020 Codemasters Anti Cheat Measures

    I started to do the weekly event until I saw the names at the top of the leaderboard. I did two practice sessions (putting in a fair amount of effort after bumping up the difficulty) before I noticed my effort was pointless. I'll just stick with career and ignore every other multiplayer aspect because quite frankly what is the point if we're not on a level playing field? I'll never be as fast as the aliens which is 100% fine and the way it should be, but flat out cheating just renders the whole online experience completely meaningless. If I was the developer I'd be more cheesed off with the cheaters than we are.

    What camera do you use?

    Cockpit with no halo and Track ir. It really helps to be able to naturally look to the apex and check mirrors with Track ir. I'm very happy they added a virtual mirror, helps massively with situational awareness. I'm such a nerd I've also set limits to the track ir so I can't look beyond the limit of the hans device.... yes I have issues.

    Codemasters have a partnership with Steam in this instance, so the onus is on Steam to provide the tools on their platform to prevent cheating. There are two points they can be stopped/removed, Steam and in the Game. What it takes is a hands-on approach and Steam/Valve has shown it is incapable of policing it's own policies via automation. They've always had an issue with toxicity (how many racist groups exist/ed on Steam until very recently?) and it just needs a concerted effort to clean it up. It's not like they lack resources. Codemasters at the least could do a sweep every two weeks or so and remove the obvious stuff, and most of them are incredibly obvious just by watching the ghost.
