    Hi guys,

    I have some money but I can only add one item to my rig at the moment. My rig is a 8700k 1070 gpu and I only play in VR. I want to either get a Direct drive wheel (fanatic DD1) or traction loss for my prosimu t1000 2dof motion rig. My wheel is a CSR fanatec with the elite pedals with load cell brake.

    I am leaning towards the traction loss as I do feel a little funny when the back end slips out yet I do not feel the lack of traction loss in VR. this is also the only thing I am missing as I already have a wheel albeit not a great one.

    I play Assetto Corsa
    Project cars 2 and Iracing

    I also have gamevibe.

    Any advice would be great.

    thanks

    DD wheel for sure.

    The SCN6 on SimTool TL not feel right to me... I still could not setup proper to feel TL right somehow. I saw some posts show great results other than SCN intersace. I also have SCN TL with SimX SW works just great.
