You're never gonna get properly incremental handicaps. There are thresholds and cliffs where the disadvantage increases exponentially.
Is it worth trying on a practice night over a few races?

Great work Phil. Hold the cup high and proud!
I'm hanging out for a deal on a 1660 ti. Once I get one all I need to do is order a fanatec wheel and pedals and I won't be far away unless Mrs Threepwood intervenes.
Pretty sure it'll take me a while to get up to speed. Will be fun to get back out on track though.
A central bezel would be annoying, to understate it.Would be like a modern f1 lol
But sound better.
My debate at the moment is whether to get 3 x 32 inch or one 55 inch tv.
The biggest problem with triples larger than 27" is you need a dedicated monitor stand as a lot of the cockpit monitor stands aren't designed for screens that size.
Following on from another thread, I'm seeking some feedback on what I'm thinking so I can get back into sim racing.
So my strategy is this:
Short Term - buy a new 32 inch 1440p monitor and minor upgrade of PC to play. Basically, fun on the cheap.
Long Term - buy cockpit plus 2 extra 32 inch 1440p monitors to run triples and do an overhaul of my PC - when a GPU is available that runs it and isn't rediculously priced.
My current build is:
Azrock Z77 Extreme 4 mobo
Fractal design define R4 case
Short Term I'm just looking at swapping in a GTX 1660 ti. Will this run AC and ACC at 1440p around 60 fps? And will I need to upgrade anything else? I don't need Max settings.
Monitor I'm considering is this:
Thanks for any input guys!
God I wish my fiance didn't like her crappy shows that are only shown on Foxtel.
On another note though, if you call Foxtel and ask to disconnect because of Kayo and you don't record shows or use anything other than sports they'll drop your Sport + HD package to $39 per month for a year.
I don't even want to imagine how much GB will be destroying us with a rig and triples.... that said would be awesome to have you back.
Yes CSL, lol. My desk would get too sticky trying to drive with a bag of sugar
Where did you guys get your CSL Elite stuff? Only place I can see is Pagani imports.
What do you all think of this : I get a 32 inch curved 1440p now and then wait until GPUs become more reasonable, then get an extra two 32 inch monitors and run triples then.
I remember trying 1080p on my old monitor after racing in 1440p and couldn't do it. Yes. Life is hard sometimes. I'm just not sure I can go back to 1080p even for triples and I don't want to provide the huge outlay only to be disappointed.
I've been holding out waiting for VR to catch up but it seems GPUs just can't handle VR with a decent resolution and FOV - such as the Pimax 5k. It also seems that games are behind in their optimisation for VR.
So basically I'll need a 1080ti for triples @ 2k? Would it be feasible to have the outside screens 1080p and the centre 1440p?
Also looking for a new wheel and pedals. Thinking the fanatec CSR elite...?
