    If I have my steering wheel, a SLI-M and a Frex Shift + can I use a Sym Projects SPI-D or will the rFactor peripheral count not let me. I tried using my logitech g13 programmable gamepad to get rid of having to keep a keyboard close by when in my cockpit, but that didn't work out.
    I guess I would just like to know if the SPI-D would count as another peripheral before I buy one and can't use it. Otherwise I'm stuck wait for rFactor 2 with its baffling 4 ( !!! ) peripherals allowed.

    I think it's only mappable controls that matter? I have 2 shifters, a wheel and a SLI-Pro

    The arc team dropped a tidbit of info on thewayiplay.com's forums about an ARC box that will integrete multiple peripherals into one input that sims can still recognize. No release date as far as i'm aware though.

    Felt safer to ask than order one and ship it all the way here to not know 100%.
    Always wondered how you guys had 17 things running at once Brian. ;)
    Now I get to place my order and patiently wait :)
    Tempted to consider the DLC-247, but I really just want to watch my corner speeds and hate having to have the hideous full RPM gauge open, especially in it's weird spot. But thinking about it, in cockpit view it is right there on the dash. Would be nice to have something a little brighter, bigger and closer. Plus it would just looks cool :cool: with my cockpit.

    Thanks guys, big help as usual.
    One day I'll be done with all these questions, but by then I'll have a mortgage worth of top-end sim racing gear.

    Thanks again,
    Gary
