rFactor and LFS are also top notch.

May be it is LFS, I do not like it though. rfactor is crap imo but some good mods .... Best use of that engine is made by Simbin game like GTR evo, GTR2 + mods ...

GTR evo is the newest I think among these ... but graphics are dated. Nothing like Grid or nfs-shift.

TDU is also decent game not real sim.

+1 Easily iRacing. There are plenty of 1 month trials available, many which basically give you content worth of $40 for free. I urge everyone who is interested in serious racing sims to give a trial a try, you won't regret it. I surely didn't.

Nothing beats going outside and hopping in your car and peel off.

I'll regret it. I can't see spending $360 for it. That's approx. what you spend if you buy every track and every car.
