    Get well soon Hans. With a little practice, it is possible to drive with only the left hand.

    Tim, while practising for boss+miami on Monday I tried doing a couple laps single-handed while holding the phone with the other... It was a good 10+ seconds slower and you risk a lot taking your hand off the wheel to operate the shifter; buggers up your line good and plenty.
    He would have to use an auto gearbox to keep that hand on the wheel. :(

    I use the rear shifter on my G27 to downshift, and I've mapped the top button on the front of the wheel to upshift. I admit it's not as realistic as using a shifter, and I've had to lower the FFB, but it's the only way I can race.

    :eek::eek: You've been really lucky from the sound of that. I've known people who were hospitalised for months and never fully recovered from falling off a ladder..

    If you place your sore hand on the monitor screen I can faith heal you. All I need to know is the time and a free donation to keep the faith.

    Sorry to hear about your hand Hans. Hope it completely heals. I'm 60 now and everything hurts all the time.

    It's going way better now wounds are healed but strength on 50% can shift but no grip on the wheel so I lay my hand on the wheel to help steering,take one race at the time an if possible take a light car ( no Boss !! )
