    I never played rFactor and I'll never play any (racing) games unless it's got VR support.
    Latest news say next update will bring VR support and DX11 to rFactor2

    Maybe it's about time to give it a try...

    To get rFactor 2 up and running with OpenVR, which supports the Rift and Vive, right click on the game in your Steam Library, go to Properties, choose the Beta tab and pick the dx11 open beta version. The game will install the beta update files. After that, start up Steam VR and fire up the rFactor 2 game. Start the single-player game mode in the launcher (on PC screen) and the game will automatically start up in the VR HMD: https://www.reddit.com/r/Vive/comments/6giunq/rfactor_2_has_got_vr_support_in_beta_release_car/

    Does anyone see an increase in performance when using the OpenComposite dlls compared to running SteamVR?

    I actually forked a project with rF2 specific focus, see my signature (implements loading screen and removes bunch of stuff irrelevant to rF2). On my box (8700k@5.0ghz/1080ti) difference is subtle, but OC is less erratic. Pure FPS is higher with SVR sometimes, but OC does pacing correctly.

    You have 2 options

    You can bind seat moving buttons in the options
    Or set a centre vr button and move your head then centre it until your happy
    Or bit of both I guess
