I tried to refund AC and buy it again, citing that it's now cheaper (they actually had that as an option on the refund request form... 'price is lower now than it was before' or something to that effect.

They denied it, citing "too many hours of play"

oh well the game is worth $60, so whatever.

Just drove a BRZ around Monza with a PS3 controller. It was hard to be smooth, the sticks are really touchy.

What wheels are you guys running? I see the old G27 has skyrocketed in price now that it is discontinued. Quite the bummer.

Also, Im wishing I had a 1440 monitor...

Thanks, I have the centering spring disabled, I'll try it enabled and see how it feels.

A sim rig would be nice, sometimes I want to jump in and play without having to drag this thing out with eleventy cables dangling everywhere.

Anyone here on iRacing? I bought a year subscription since they were half off.

Picked up a new gpu for the htpc, the old one was having a hard time dealing with smoke in game.

A few laps, the server I host "DriftFaction". Don't mind the terrible music.

Frys had a G27 for under $200 a couple months back but I doubt that's going to come up again, seems like they're all gone. That's what I'm running.

They still make the G29 but it doesn't come with a shifter and it's kind of pricey for what you get. Stay away from the xbox version which is the G920 which still has no PC drivers.

I'd look into the Thrustmaster wheels, great bang for the buck and they have a good amount of choices. You can grab the T150 for under $200, and you can add-on a shifter and nicer 3 pedal set to it later on if you decide too.

If you want to get crazy get the T300 base and this wheel rim


The wheel quality is amazing, it feels solid and the alcantara is really good quality. It feels like a aftermarket wheel from one of the big brands.

Add-on T3PA pro pedals and the shifter and it's a great setup. If you want to get crazy and have an amazing setup get load cell modded T3PA pros or Clubsport V3 pedals which will get you more of a real car hydraulic feel, makes you more consistent under braking and allows you to module better. Those would require a rig or hardmounted pedals since the pedal is a lot stiffer, they would slide all over the place if you have them on the floor.

Used Logitech wheel on CL, there's always someone selling a G25/27. My buddy picked up a mint G27 recently for $100.

I guess I can't add people on Steam since it's not verified, I'm using a poverty family account.

What drift tracks do you guys like?

Any other mods are welcome, I downloaded the S13 and a few tracks like Road America, Tor Poznan and some other random stuff from this russian website Cars for Assetto Corsa It seems to have recent versions of everything. Some of the websites had outdated versions of the tracks.

Anyone still play here? I don't post much, mostly lurk the fs/ft threads but have racked up nearly 650hours since AC was in early access. I'm usually drifting in the e30/drift track combo server or the moonhead server that runs titan mod content.

I've played... 39 hours? And probably 10 of that wasn't even me, but a friend of mine going around and around on Laguna Seca.

Mr.Titan car pack is probably the best all around "feeling" batch of drift cars. Tracks, ebisu, tamada, yamanashi, nikko, bihoku, meihan, sekia hills.

Took a little hiatus, but I've been playing a bit here and there in the drift server I host. If anyones interested in drifting let me know.
