    Does it work if rotations of virtual and real wheel don't match?

    I have to try it then. But I am at such low FOV so probably won't notice any difference:D

    You will if you go VR.

    Us screen users, however, generally find wheel & arms off to be more immersive. The only time I turn it on is when the wheel has info on it that isn't on my sim rig.

    sounds correct but usually the only info is the gear info that i use, that i really need some of times not always.
    I m gonna use VR when VR will be really good
    for the moment ATM gives headaches to users and the grafics are medium
    also needs really goof GPU like 1080 GTX to have some good fps with it

    Well I have a Rift and since then I only race in VR. No headache whatsoever. I have a steady 90fps with fairly high settings. Of course the GFX is less than a 4k screen but no way that I ever return to the pancake race mode.
    Not only racegames but any cockpit game is so cool in VR..

    i watched a lot youtube videos for VR and most of them says clearly that VR is in a premature state atm and maybe after years VR technology finally worth but not yet
    of course if you like VR and you are fine with that then no problem

    don't believe youtube video's....

    VR may not be fully developed for mainstream games etc, but for Racing/Driving/Flying games it is EPIC !

    Well play a session of the awesome VR game Lone Echo and you understand that those who say VR is in a premature state are so wrong..

    When I’ve seen you tubers say vr is in a premature state,they are speaking about resolution,the immersion factor is there but clarity not so,this is reguarding sim racing

    As if resolution is everything.
    4k, 8k or billion k it is still 2d and can not compare with vr

    Resolution isn’t everything and vr is definitely the way the forward for driving sims,but until I can read signs that are 15-20 mtrs infront of the car,I’ll wait.

    Resolution isn't good in todays VR headsets so reading signs is not really possible at speed so on that point i agree.
    Having said that once you get to know a track you will know your brake point before next corner is on the second white or whatever board left side of track.....at that point it doesn't care anymore what the sign is saying you just know thats your point.

    I obviously am a vr user and it's getting old but yes no way to get back to screens anymore for me. Sure the picture quality isn't as crisp and nice as on screens. But for me the immersion and the 3D is way more important.

    Sorry for the off topic......on screen i turned the wheel off also only when the wheel showed to me important data i turned it on.
    In VR it's always on for me

    The screen setup vs VR at today`s technology standard the benefits of a triple screen or projector screen setup simply outweighs the pros to the early VR systems we have as consumers today.
    For me the biggest factors are resolution, the ability to see with your own eyes and head movements like in a race cars vs the motion sickness inducing unnatural way of head movement to look around. The limitation of having to have goggles strapped to your head vs being able to move and see freely is another factor.
    Maybe at some point VR technology will be advanced enough that mixed reality goggles will be a possibility where you see our physical racing sim rig and see the virtual world around it. It will take some time and a few evolution's of VR to get to a point where it will be a clearly better solution, currently it is not that yet.
