This gaming setup is INCREDIBLE (SPONSORED)

 

We've had racing simulator gear on the channel before, but never like this.

Great video, as usual. I think it would be pretty interesting to augment this with VR. I think doing racing games in VR or flight simulator would be really sick. I saw this one guy on YT with a pretty cool @ home setup (see picture). It's from some random video I found while searching for VR reviews on Pimax 8KX (guy's channel is Joseph Marland-Brown).

 

Also, would be pretty cool to do a review of the HP Reverb G2 and Pixmax 8KX *WITH* this awesome new setup. Just thoughts  :D

I'd definitely like to see a flight sim version though!

Now do it with a wheel that can actually simulate realistic force feedback levels, such as a Fanatec DD2/DD1

 

https://fanatec.com/eu-en/racing-wheels-wheel-bases/wheel-bases/podium-wheel-base-dd2

 

I don't really see a point in using a 3000 dollar sim rig in conjunction with a pretty budget wheel. A good wheel matters more than a motion rig.

 

Edit: Just noticed they're using a damn F1 rim. On the Nordschleife.

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

LTT Guys, when Jake fixed up the Next Level Racing Free Standing Single Monitor Stand, was it symmetrical? Mine was a little off, as in the 2 side bars weren't exactly 90deg to their respective base bars, even with the 4 triangular angle supports in place. So a lot of the joints in my stand aren't 90deg square to each other, though the whole stand is very rigid. I literally just set it up earlier today, and I haven't mounted my 34" ultrawide on it yet.

The YT commenters are right, for sim racing (I personally have never done any, but I fully endorse it) you just need more. A) VR, B) A better wheel and column, and C) you need more knowledge on racing in general, like maybe not making the Nordschleife your track to introduce staff members? 

 

I understand they are pretty much noobs for this, but if the title said "This Sim Racing setup is Incredible" it would be just downright wrong. And besides, this really isn't a gaming setup. Sure it can game, but the actual setup is not for your normal definition gaming. 

Fuck you scalpers, fuck you scammers, fuck all of you jerks that charge way too much to tech-illiterate people.

Nice video overall, but as a simracer, something just feels... off about it. It's like those rigs on r/simracing where people put in G27's in an original E36 dashboard. When the wheel and pedals are the cheapest thing in your rig, then you've definitely done some bad budgeting.

 

Also, VR BTFO's that single curved screen.

He likes wide monitors and cannot lie.  LOL.  Nice Sir mixalot reference.    For those who were born in this century/millennium this is the reference.   

 

This looks like the kind of thing.  Once the dreaded Virus is dealt with ... one might want to got to an arcade and play whatever driving based game on.   Hmm a PC based gaming arcade is that a thing?

THIS

It's so weird to keep seeing Samsung pay for these spots when the G9 isn't available in the US or Canada at the moment. Not to be North America centric, but I have to imagine that's >51% of LTT viewers.

 

My current understanding, pieced together in bits and pieces from elsewhere, is that the G9 isn't in a recall state, but Samsung's supply lines have been hit by current world events such that they don't currently have a schedule for new stock. So it's just recurrently odd to see them spending money to advertise an unavailable monitor, not even getting into the light bleed issue that folks had at the top of the bezel (which I think the official word on is that they fixed via additional QC).

 

I would just love to see them actually put out a statement on it, the messaging is so mixed on this monitor.

 

EDIT: clicking on the link in the description gets me to a very unambiguous statement that the monitor isn't available in the US and Canada, so I guess I got my wish. I guess they're hoping the enthusiasm will bleed to the rest of the Odyssey line?

Not sure what's all the hate about this video. LTT has always been a generalist, being decent/okay in many things but not master in any of it. Sure their setup isn't the best or most optimal but that's not the point they are making. Jake has mentioned the setup is kind of like an entry way compared to those $50k setups. The guys need to take their elitist cap off. As a non sim racer, I find this video very enjoyable. It's just for fun and an introduction to what it's like in the world of sim racing. If I am interested, I will go research from people who are more specialized. I don't need a 2-hour boring video explaining every single detail and how-to or comparing every wheel in the world.

That is pritty much the only use case where a screen that curved is ideal.

 

That said.

 

Its still better to use 3 screens in a sim racer as u can more accurately simulate real FoV by adjusting the angle of the side monitors, and in sim games that support it they allow you to alter the 'stretching' on the sides displays as well so that u can get the ideal FoV without distorting the view from the sides, this allows u to turn ur head to see wing mirrors etc without distortion.

 

A VR set is great, BUT even today they still have some drawbacks.

1) You have to get over any motion sickness (if u suffer from it)

2) You have to be able to maintain 'minimum' fps figures of 90 in the most popular headsets and ensure frame pacing is stable.

3) Current headsets still have the 'screen door' effect to deal with and still do not have an 'ideal' FoV. (StarVR gets the closest)

 

No.2 is harder than it sounds as ur GPU has to be able to handle, for example, 2x 2560 x 2560 displays at 90hz with perfect frame pacing. 13million pixels at 90hz is harder to drive than 3x 2560 x 1440 displays at 11million.

 

Also agree with what some others have said, get a better wheel.

 

On a side note: Its always a laugh watching you guys over the pond try to drive a Manual :P

Please check your FOV with a calculator like this: https://sampsoid.com/fov-calc/. Looking at the video is seems the FOV is too high. This is really disorientating since objects are not accurately represented. Part of the benefit of using triple screen / ultrawide is that you can get a super wide view of everything. Although everything else about the video was really nice and I'm glad you guys did a piece on sim racing!

 

BTW like people said: VR is the next step for true immersion. As someone who has tried triple screens and VR, this is my verdict. Triple screens are great for endurance races (1+ hour) because ideally you'd want to drink water + make adjustments to your car through your wheel / game. VR is great for short sessions since if you go any longer 1) the headset gets super sweaty 2) your eyes tend to not feel the best afterward.

This was very cool to watch for me.😮 

I was blown away that these companies actually make this stuff but the cost to buy.

I wish this gear was cheap so everyone could get it because that looks so fun. 😃

I wish I was obscenely rich. 😄

The Nurburg Ring Nordschleife is widely considered one of the hardest track's to drive correctly. It's incredibly bumpy, has unforgiving kerbs and the apex' are very hard to judge correctly. It's nickname "The Green Hell" didn't come from it being an easy track to drive.

 

It's much better to learn on track's such as Spa Francorchamps, Silverstone GP layout and even the Nurburgring GT layout.

It's classed as an "open wheel", and thrustmaster themselves say it's for GT, LMP and kart racing. None of which were used in the video. The stock rim would've been much better for the car used in the video.

Yea this was weird to me too. Why not use an easy and wide course like Brands Hatch?

IMO this wouldn't have mattered. I have both the stock rim and open wheel and the difference is already negligible. The stock rim is already small, the open wheel is just a little bit smaller.  Plus I doubt this difference mattered that much to the LMG staff who have never sim raced before.

Exactly, I was going to mention Silverstone, but ig I didn't. Nurburgring is a fantastic track to visit and spectate, and drive a sportscar on. You just don't start on the Ring
