Topic: What equipment to buy starting out in sim racing?
Whelp, you know the situation is bad when you're asking the Lemons community about something tech and computer related.
I've been wanting to get into sim racing for a little while now and with the pandemic going on staying inside is the heroic thing to do so why not get started racing? The issue is every buyer's guide is flat out wrong with their prices. It seems all the racing wheels that were recommended at the beginning of 2020 are $100+ more than they used to be. The Logitech G29 and G920 are trending around $400+ rather than the $300 the guides assume. On top of that almost all the sim racing wheels are sold out or not able to be shipped for a month so I'm getting a bit frustrated.
All I want is a decent, entry level wheel and pedal setup that cost less than a Lemons car. I would like a clutch pedal and a gear shifter but based on what I'm seeing that just isn't going to happen under my budget.
Any suggestions or insight on how to get racing?
