    [HR][/HR]Most of you will probably laugh when you read this, but oh well :p

    When I was younger, I was always into racing games and watched videos of F1 C.E. on YouTube and my first ever glimpse of rFactor was a related video. After I saw that, I always wanted to play. So when I turned 18 and bought myself a new PC with the money, the first thing I invested in was rFactor and a G25. I was shown towards RaceDepartment and never looked back.

    I've never really been a hardware nut, never understood how the wheels all work. I know about PC's, but I didn't even know pedals used potentiometers :redface: I've never really needed help because (thankfully) my stuff has generally been reliable, but I read up here a lot and I want to say thanks for all the insight and knowledge you have given me :) I can even use this info at work :)

    So I just wanted to say thanks to you all, and keep it up, you really do offer the RD community a great service :)
