I don't know why, but last month I got the idea to do something new: simracing! Played Microprose GP2 daily when I was a teenager, like gokarts for fun (once a year), spend some years on a motorcycle, and regularly watch Formula 1 races. That is mainly my background related to racing. So now I want to get a better driver in rfactor 2! But how? And how do I do so while still keeping fun in my sparse free time? (full job, 2 young kids) After installing the game I soon found out that a gamepad didn't work out for me, so I got myself a second hand Logitech G29. Read some forums and decided to follow-up some advise I found: don't use any driving aids, start with an easy car (Renault Clio) and try to be consistent. So in a couple of hours I went from crashing every lap to a quite stable 2:06-2:07 on the new Zandvoort circuit and I'm still improving. I'm using the ghost driver to find out where I an improve, this works quite well! Next steps are to fix my pedals and chair (has small wheels) to the floor, because currently I can't properly brake. I also ordered a better video card (GTX660 to GTX1060) to get from low to medium quality (running on Linux/Proton). As I mentioned, I believe I can still improve, my target is a consistent 2:00. But what comes up next? Should I worry about the car setup? Should I improve that FOV? Should I upgrade the car to e.g. a Porsche GT series? Should I learn a different track? Should I work on the settings of the Logitech G29 steering wheel? Should I .. ? Thanks for any advise!
