Make sure you have a way to hardmount new pedals though. Anything with a load cell wont work if you just have it on the floor or carpet. The Fanatec CSL would be very nice Andrew. I have the CSP v3s which are great, but some people prefer the brake on the CSL. Either one is a good set.

If you have the $, get this : https://ca.gtomegaracing.com/index.php? ... eat-canada

I got one and this was my best buy for a seat, moving from a Playseat Evolution to this.

Holy crap! There's the second per lap Dany ;)

I'm trying to upgrade slowly as I get into it. I figure the pedals are the most crucial.

Carsten, I hear you on the hardmount. Even my pedals lift up from time to time. I'll just put them on a piece of plywood and screw it to the floor :) we're redoing them soon anyway.

Godammit, I totally forgot about the race yesterday! Long *** day at work and I crashed on the couch the second I got home. My apologies for the no-show, I really wanted to race Daytona, too!

If we are talking about gear... I'll chime in.

I run ProtoSimTech PT-1 pedals. BEST investment I've made. The difference is not necessarily outright speed, but consistency. Case in point, when I practice with Matt I am consistent with braking. Your brain is far better at replicating pressure versus travel, based on what I've read.

Be like me, when she asks how much you spent you take the total and divide by 3 or 4 and that is what you tell her.
