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.

Playing iRacing on a very realistic VirtualGT Racing Simulator w/ Ian Alexander & Friends

Want a T-Shirt or Coffee cup? http://swag.barnnerd.com My good friend and past DirtFish Rally School instructor Ian Alexander is now working for an amazing company that builds really high end racing simulators for both actual race car drivers that need to practice and sim racing enthusiasts. These simulators start at about $12k and go all the way up to $80+k USD and the primary focus of these simulators is to get as close to reality as possible with the available power coming out of your wall. The simulator that I'm reviewing in this video is one of there older models and sits at about $40k as equipped if you wanted to buy one. It's a full motion system based on D-BOX technology and the simulator houses a 9 speaker sound system including tune subwoofer under the seat and multiple very large transducers throughout the rig that make my buttkicker look like a party favor. The sound system is beyond amazing, the majority of the simulator is built from wood so that that the motion transfer and sound resonate perfectly to give you the feeling that you're actually sitting in a car and it does a damn fine job of doing it. Also the motion is so perfectly smooth and coordinated with the video on the screens and the controls that your brain can actually use the input constructively and it's not just a passive effect to make thing more interesting. The screens on this thing are amazing, they are so much brighter then my 46" screens I have at home and they are commercial panels (not just HDTV's) and are designed to work well in very bright lighting and out doors which is freaking amazing. I can't translate in this video just how smooth the motion is on this machine and just how aggressive it can become based on the amount of input it receives from the game. The 500 watt sound system built into this thing is amazingly loud and clear, not only that but it's custom and isn't Dolby or DTS they re-mix the audio coming into the simulator and give you full control over how you want to feel that sound in each range. And you can even setup different audio settings for each car and track you have and they are quickly accessible by buttons on the dashboard. And last but not least I was wondering if this would be to loud to have upstairs in the Man Cave so we turned down all the auidio and bass on the unit and just left the motion enabled the machine is whisper quiet! Even when it's lifting the whole sim up or slamming it forward under heavy braking it's absolutely quiet and silent, I have no idea how this is even possible. But you can bet your ass I'm going to try and save up and get one of these at some point in my life :P Virtual GT: http://virtual-gt.com Phone #: 888-366-9205 Make sure you tell them that Ian Alexanders friend Jerry Berg sent you if you want to call and do a test drive or get a quote, who knows he might even cut you a little deal :P This show is an independent production of Jerry Berg (aka Barnacules).

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.

Testing iHud Guages for iPad with iRacing - Custom Obutto Revolution Racing Cockpit
This is the follow up video to the modification of my Obutto Revolution to add an iPad. This software is amazing, it allows you to create custom dashboards in any layout you can imagine and have them at your fingertips and easily configurable. I personally like having certain data on a separate screen and feel that it ads to the experience. The application works by running a server app on your computer running iRacing that the iPad iHud application connects to. There appears to be no (or very little) lag in the data displayed on the iPad as you are playing the game which is fantastic. iHUD for iRacing is the definitive Dashboard for iRacing. With iHud for iRacing V2.20 you can customize High Definition Dashboards in your iOS device. You can play iRacing in FULL SCREEN without having to play in windowed mode and without losing any FPS!!.
