    Order of importance and capability for time gains in my opinion are

    1- low latency monitor
    2- loadcel pedals
    Tied 3rd triples vr and wheel,all will give more immersion but can also improve your race craft,but won’t have as much impact on a one lap run as a good set of pedals will

    Getting the FOV right is a must as well. Too many people run a massive FOV because "MUH SENSE OF SPEED" and it makes every turn in less precise.

    Right FOV for that particular user ;)

    Between 35 and 40 works for me

    I just put the correct dimensions in for my triples and it does it’s thing,I’d love to know the number for that fov,as it doesn’t actually give you one

    I was an FOV heathen up til I got Trackhat. I used to set it so I could still just about see all the wing mirrors and that's it.

    ive found between 35-40 depending on car gives that 1:1 representation of the world outside and is set to how I would see in my real world car.

    Changing the fov in the settings menu doesn’t actually change anything on my system,does it only change single monitor setups ??

    Yes, for triples there is a different window you can open to configure the triples. That will implicitly set your FOV.
