    Gaming can't introduce fear, it will neve be realistic. But should check out Nico Rosburgs FItop channel. He is F1 gamer and his knowledge of the track and how to drive it is insane. You will probably throw all your car games in the trash and guy buy F1 after watching it.

    I hope this gives every beginner a good feeling about their rig. Be proud of what you have. All the expensive gear really just adds a bit of consistency and "realism". You can start simracing for little money. Don't be scared that your experience won't be good or your laptimes will be slow. And if you wanna upgrade. A loadcell pedal set makes the biggest difference out of all.

    Ofcourse better equipment is nicer and the added feel through the Controls will help with a little extra pace. But as your pro said, the important thing is knowing when to brake, turn in, accelerate and general lines. The equipment will only add a few % extra improvement to your lap times

    Not to spoil your fun but having an expensive simulator doesn't make you faster just makes it more fun. Edit: also pretty sure that fanatech is not much more then that logitech its cheaper cus its very used and the seat is cheap.

    If your skilled you can mod your Logitech G29 with load cell(s) and a Arduino/equivalent for your break to simulate hydraulic brakes, instead of the pot.meter was is original used in the G29. Then set force feed back and sensibility on max. I did manage to reduce my laptime with around 2-4sec. 1) better trail breaking 2) more consistent overall so when driving a 10lap or more race I do not qualify on the top but due to point 2 I normally slide me up the list :) so yes G29 is fine to use

    I've set several lap records on various sims using just a G27/9 on the desk, an unmovable chair and a piece of wood so pedals wouldn't slide out of position. So it is possible to be fast with basic gear. However...proper sim gear will train your muscle memory and therefore be more consistent. More detail from a direct drive wheel is always welcome. With so many button plates/custom wheels available, you can choose something that'll suit your use best. If you make lots of adjustments on a lap having a wheel/button plate with buttons/rotaries/paddles in convenient places will be much better. Won't do too much on a single lap but over a race distance it'll make a noticeable difference. For example, switching through deployment profiles, re-gen rates, engine brake and brake balance on Formula Hybrid cars is simply a pain in the ass on a G29: The rotary switch on it is in-accurate, there aren't enough buttons to quickly scroll through the aforementioned, so you're forever clicking on buttons in rapid succession to move one down, lol. Even the KERS button (used in certain low speed corners to get traction quicker) is at times not where you want it. The fanatec F1 wheel with podium paddles is a really good ''entry level'' F1 wheel. Of course there is better (Precision Sim Engineering GPx or the Rexing offerings for example). I need to get back into sim racing again...

    I have a G29 wich is simmilair to the G920, tried once on my mate's Fanatec stuff, drove within 3 or 4 laps the same laptimes. Biggest difference i think is that you are more consistant with a Fanatec or a more expensive steering wheel and pedals.
