Just an Update...

Post  Simcik on Thu Aug 08, 2013 1:50 am

So, what happens when you find an old PC in your parents closet, and you add a used graphics card, a gig of RAM, and wireless controller adapter?

You wind up with a $69 iRacing rig!

Not that soon, no.

Probably this weekend, though.

I'm still waiting on the controller adapater to get here so I can use my XBox wheel.

Really wanna try out some crew-cheifing too, but none of the NASCAR stuff comes with basic package, right?

 Theres no link?

Also, yes, I know long term the M$ wheel won't work, but it's better than nothing to get started with. (It'll support FF, but there's no clutch pedal. Sad )

I figure this will let me try things out without significant investment (So far, I'm less than $70 - a subscription takes me up to $85.) and then decide whether I want to spend more on PC stuff, or XB1 stuff...

Also, got an update on the wireless adapter - it probably won't make it 'til Monday, so it may not be this weekend after all.

$11.95 for the Cup car and $14.95 for TMS.  Texas has 6 different layouts including a roval, some road courses, the speedway, and the Legends oval.

Well, that's a little steep for the time being. Guess I'll stick to the basics for a while.

Anyway, sad news - the adapter did not arrive today. Sad

Sim, you should wait on buying stuff like that anyway, until you need it.  Obviously, if you want it just because you like that combo you should buy it, but there is so much to do when you first start, you'll have fun working your way up.  It definitely pays to spend some time in the lower series to learn the cars and the racing characteristics.  Plus, you'll start with a rookie license so you won't even be eligible to run in a series that features purchased content until you level up.  Except to do Carb Cup races with the Gen6 that only runs on Daytona and Talladega (which you need to buy), and Charlotte (which you'll have already), but Carb Cup races don't count towards your MPR (Minimum Participation Requirement) to level you up.  I guarantee you'll enjoy the Street Stock series (which costs nothing more than a subscription).

I agree with Tux.  Just think of the Rookie License as the "Car Control and Crash avoidance program"
