Your steering wheel, does the rotation match?

    In my case my physical wheel isn't in my line of sight when I'm looking at my monitor. For me a steering wheel is part of the graphics of the car - my G25 doesn't look like the steering wheel of any of the cars I regularly drive. I get all my immersion from the screen. Part of that immersion is seeing the appropriate wheel for the car. The animated hands on the wheel are important for immersion too - if they are missing it looks like no one is driving the car.

    However because my wheel isn't in my line of sight I don't care whether the one on the screen matches the rotation of my G25.

    +1/2 , I keep the virtual wheel on for the same reasons, but I need to have the rotation matching the real wheel , I don't use virtual arms, I could say I'm in a hybrid position between those who turn off the wheel and those like David that keep it all.

    Wouldn't having the wheel/arms on have an impact on fps?

    Surprisingly it doesnt have a considerable one with FSR 2014:

    OFF: Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg
    2397, 30000, 71, 93, 79.900

    NO ARMS: Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg
    2440, 30000, 72, 95, 81.333

    ON: Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg
    2424, 30000, 74, 94, 80.800

    Frame times with Frafs bench viwer are also pretty much the same in 3 runs with each preset.
