    Two of these three cars are not nice to drive in VR for me. The KTM apparently has a tiny cockpit. Adjusting the view to someone my size leaves me with my head practically through the roof and barely able to see out the windscreen. The Lotus is just plain weird... the world scale is way off, meaning the steering wheel looks like something that would normally be found on a bus rather than in a racing car. Adjusting it to the correct proportions leaves my view about a foot behind the back of the drivers seat. In both cases putting the viewpoint into a "useful" position creates such a disconnect between my real and virtual hands that it just feels horrible. Never seen these issues with any other car. Makes me wonder if they were tested in VR at all.

    Oh well, at least the Porsche works without issue... and it's my favourite of the three anyway. :p

    Oh, and for the record I haven't had any issues dropping from 3rd to 2nd gear in the Porsche, so I guess they fixed it. :thumbsup:

    Apologies but during my adrenaline fueled work-out of getting out of a chair I’ve done my back in. Will leave myself signed in for Tuesdays race and see how it goes

    I know how you feel when your having a back problem. I tried lifting my dad up off the floor after he fell out of bed at 4 in the morning. And popped a disc out in my back. 3 1/2 weeks later and I'm still in agony. Not with the spine but with all the muscles and tendons and nerve there are on fire at times. My hips hurt most of the time oddly enough but that's the way it goes apparently when you do this sort of thing.
    Anti-inflammatory and if that don't work go to the doctor's and ask for morphine. 10mg morphine patch and two Zapain sometimes three. And get somebody to wipe the dribble off your chin.:roflmao:
    Get better soon mate. And remember you're not 21 anymore.;)

    I have to sign off. My game STILL keeps crashing when i play in VR. I seem to get like 10 minutes before the game just closes. I reported it on the sector 3 forum, so until it gets fixed no raceroom for me. :(

    I can play all other VR games i have just fine, so it must be an issue with raceroom

    But the fact that many others are playing in VR without crashes suggests that it isn't R3E... or at least, that it is some combination unique to your system combined with R3E.

    I forgot which headset you are using... is it Oculus? If so, have you tried the older, more stable version of SteamVR to see if that helps? It's a necessity for me to play without horrendous stuttering.

    @DKOliver, try the version mentioned in this post. It dates from October last year, just before a bunch of very poor changes were made to SVR which ruined performance on Oculus headsets. I have no idea if it will help with the Vive, but it will at least reinstate a few config options which were removed in later versions.
