    Okay guys, i joined here as I have an xbox and f1 2010/2011.

    I recently bought a racing seat and steering wheel.Had great fun.

    However, the rFactor seems to have more versatility and I'm tempted by the world of rFactor!

    So here are some questions - maybe you guys can answer them for me?

    Q1. Once you have purchased the game on cd/dvd, do you have to pay monthly amounts for additional games (e.g. f1, stock cars) or mods? If so, how much/what do you get?

    Q2. Do all you pros have the rfactor linked to t'v/large screens? What monitor/gaming setup do you have?

    Q3. Is there lag during online races or many disconnection problems?

    Q4. For a newb like me, how much would it cost to get the rfactor and decent steering wheel in order to play online races?

    Thanks again for any help!:D

  2. Hope that helps out a bit :p

    you are a star man. Thank you so much!

    It may be a while but i will save up and buy a wheel .i could go out tomorrow and buy one but its not long since i had to splash out £500 on a new head gasket so i best be careful.lol cheers!
  4. You can find alot of nice wheels. Momo's DFGT, G25. G27, Fanatec.
    In the store you probably pay to much. So a good search on internet you will get it most of the time cheaper. :)
    Got my DFGT for example for 65 euro's.
  5. What steering wheel have you currently got? It may well be PC compatible if its Logitech.

    @ Andrew:If you don't want to spend a lot for a wheel and you want something current, definitely go for a Logitech DFGT. Awesome wheel for people with a budget in mind.

    Yes mate. I bought it and prefer the gameplay to f1 2011 on xbox. i also downloaded the simsync thing with mods for fone2008. much better than demo.

    however, i just want to join some kind of pro am club with f1 style cars and i can't see any events other than a league :-(

    RFactor Racing Club here is running the GP2 2011 mod at this time. It is a very good mod! DL it and give it a try, i think you will like it. I'm pretty certain that a F1 Club Race will return so hang tough and enjoy the game. Oh i highly recommend the F1 1992 mod as well, Aryton Senna and McLaren man!:)

    yes, 1992 sounds great. senna and mansell eh?lol them were the days
