Custom iPhone mount for Thrustmaster T500RS and iHud iRacing/rFactor/LFS Dashboards
Today I show you how to create a custom iPhone bracket to easily hold your iPhone for displaying gauges right behind your Thrustmaster T500RS racing wheel. I'm sure the design can be adapted to any steering wheel or cockpit and I hope it inspires others to improve there racing simulators.

iRacing on Epic Surround Racing Sim Cockpit @ Okayama Speedway : I Wrecked...
Purchase T500RS Wheel @ http://amzn.to/1hMdXuz Purchase TH8RS Shifter @ http://amzn.to/1fXwOix Tweet Me @ http://twitter.barnnerd.com Facebook Me @ http://facebook.barnnerd.com Hey Nerdgasm fans, I finally decided to dust off the simulator and play some iRacing. I keep putting it off because I'm waiting to get the transducers mounted but that project keeps getting pushed back. It was time to just break it out and have some fun! This was my first time playing iRacing in several months (I can't even remember the last race I did) and it shows in my driving. I have a wreck very early in the race and it messes with my nerves for the rest of the race. But I'm still happy to be back in the drivers seat and I will be doing some more practice before my next race. I lost a few points off my license and my iRating but to be honest my iRating was already in the trash from not playing for so long. The top screen displaying the real time data is called iRDDU and is a fantastic program. I highly recommend it if you have a setup similar to mine. I also cranked up the system and graphics memory settings in iRacing and enable extra detail textures which make the in-game graphics look so much better.

Best iRacing Setup Rookie Street Stock @ Charlotte Motor Speedway - Only Wrecked Once!
Please Like, Favorite and Subscribe! - It's been a few months since I've played iRacing and a lot of you have been requesting that I get back on the sim so tonight I did just that. I jumped on the Obutto R3volution with T500RS and Sparco Mod with my Fanatec Clubsport V2 pedals and TH8 Thrustmaster shifter and got business done. I do a POV view with the camera right behind my head so you can see what I see and also have a webcam pointed at my face so you can see my reactions. I did pretty good in practice but I had one pretty epic wreck on lap 14 of the race but still managed to pit my car even though it was in the craziest shape ever! This race took place at 9:00pm @ Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Street Stock Series. I have not put a custom skin on my car yet but I will do that before the next race but I was happy to report I didn't wreck anyone or get anyone calling me explitives during the race and I count that as a victory. I come in 11th place and get a few points for my license which is fantastic despite the huge indecent! I love my racing simulator and consider it to be one of the best ones I've ever used short of a $20+ k motion platform based simulator. It also is very easy to convert back into a regular work area so I don't have to have room for a dedicated simulator and work/game station.

iRacing on Oculus Rift w/ Vireio Perception Open Source Driver
The Oculus VR Rift is an amazing device and after using it myself I can really understand how it's going to change the future of gaming and possibly social networks. Shop @ Amazon and help the channel! http://amazon.barnnerd.com http://amazonuk.barnnerd.com Tweet me @ http://twitter.barnnerd.com Facebook me @ http://facebook.barnnerd.com Visit Oculus VR @ http://oculusvr.com I have literally been waiting forever to try one of these Oculus Rift DK1 units and lucky for me a co-worker had one that he could loan me to do a full review of. I have to say that it surprised me in lot of ways and let me down in others but overall the technology is solid and I can honestly see this easily becoming the future of gaming. The biggest drawback is obviously the resolution and blur and they have addressed both of those problems in the upcoming DK2 unit which I will also borrow from my friend Brian to do a review of. My biggest concern with it however is that the resolution is 1080p which still seems vastly inadequate for something like this that has to divide the resolution into two frames and then make it consume your entire field of view (FOV). I only hope that Oculus behind the scenes has their eyes on a 4k version because I think with that kind of resolution this actually would become highly viable and would bring the most realistic gaming experience possible. The Oculus Rift uses two lenses in a ski mask-style head-mounted display that combine to form a 1280 x 800 display. Each eye sees 640 x 800 pixels and while that still sounds like a low resolution in 2013, you can't judge the product on that single spec alone. The rest of the hardware simply consists of a break-out control box you use to plug the Rift into your computer; it features DVI, HDMI, micro-USB and power.
