    BTW I do have a wheel setup (T300 base/Leather 28 GT Rim, secondhand Fanatec CSR Elite Pedals and Wheel Stand Pro), though they've been in the loft the last few months (moved them there when decorating the office I used, then got too busy with Xmas etc. and never brought them down again) and I need to set everything up again - will try to do so this weekend.

    I do have a mic and have used TeamSpeak a couple of times previously okay (Lars Hanson gave me some tips online in R3E).

    Also need to reinstall Raceroom! Could someone remind me or point me in the right direction for some reasonable starting FFB settings for this wheel and the current R3E build? Thanks!

    Right after the new year actually. The US club staff was getting pretty thin so there was a big push to fill that gap. :)

    @Christian Moreau If you wanted other experienced folks in to help you out with this at all just let me know. I think I should be free between those times.

    Hi Oscar! I appreciate the offer! :) I'm going to do this first one on my own to see how things go. I'm thinking of doing one every month or so if there is enough interest so I'll let you know for the next one. :thumbsup:

    Wanted you to know that I think this is a great idea Christian and God knows I have a lot to learn but the mid-day timing just doesn't work out for me. I own a business and the only free time I have is late evenings or weekends so I'll have to pass, at least for now.
