    This will be our fourth of many RaceRoom Racing Experience events for newcomers on Tuesday night. Of course our seasoned R3E members are also more than welcome to join as long as they help out the newcomers as we always tend to do :thumbsup:

    Time to install Teamspeak and join the fun online while you enjoy the banter. Ask as many questions about simracing as you like and don't be afraid as there are no stupid questions. The worst thing that can happen is that you'll become a better driver :) #TTTuesday

    Wait? What is this?

    For this event you need absolutely nothing special. A copy of RaceRoom Racing Experience with the correct content, a keyboard, a console controller, or steering wheel it's all fine. Today we are going to focus on getting you safely out on the online track (for the first time) and giving you a great experience and making you a better driver with the help of seasoned veterans and staff.

    Make sure to be on time for the practice session and have teamspeak installed and be with us for the full length of the event. During the practice and qualification you have a full hour to get familiar with the car and the track. That's right, you don't need to practice offline first. You can come by fully unprepared :)

    After practice we skip to qualification to decide the racing order and do a short fun race of only 30 minutes so everybody can return to their wive, girlfriend, mom in time.

    Who can join?
    All premium members can sign up for this event and a maximum of one server available for this event. Sign up below and make sure to tag fellow community members who you think are up for a challenge!

    sorry, take me out, please. I don't like this game at all, the force feedback is brutal and the visibility not very good (can't see a corner from the dash on the test track at 0.7 FOV and that is not even the mathematically correct 0.5) and a zillion other things I could probably fiddle and configure out but right now I'd better focus at improving in AC.

    What's brutal about the FFB?

    Also, I'm also driving with FOV around 0.5 or 0.6. Have you tried moving your seat forward? I have to move it forward quite a lot to feel comfortable. Then again I don't feel like I need to be able to see into the corner when I'm using a correct FOV.

    Yeah I know what you mean, the default settings are quiet different in these two games.
    If you ever feel that AC is "not enough" for you I will gladly help you to configure it to that it feels very similar to AC.
    You have a lot of FFB settings which need to be tweaked and of course you can alter the seat position!
    For me there is no difference at all. R3E is a little bit less eye candy but softer for the eyes and sharper. The FFB is a little more detailed on low forces.
    Overall the fov/seat/cockpit view and the driving it self is almost the same for me. But don't want to push you :)
