The only issue is I am now using a lap attachment and it is a heck of a lot different than when playing with a fixed steering wheel. I will need to practice a lot more before I can pull of the same kinds of moves as there is now more "give"

Yea that vibration-motor in the brake pedal to indicate the brakes locking up is a pretty damn sick feature ,plus the adjustability/durability of the thing,awesome.

Yea,their stuff is amazing,only problem is that the availability is limited,atleast for now.Hopefully they'll ramp up their production soon to meet the demand.

You know that stuttering issue some people were having?

I never experienced it before with my 2 previous graphics cards or my previous processor but, apparently I am getting some stuttering with my current configuration

It's a good thing I am using my saved profile where I have completed all the races, else I would be annoyed

One other thing

Can you only drive some cars with the paddle shifters?

I can't seem to drive any of my Ferrari's with my H-gate Has to be the shifter.

Yes, the cars that have paddle shifters in RL use them in the game and same as the H-gate cars, except when you disable the H-gate option in the settings then all cars are paddle shifters.

I was really hoping to drive my Enzo with my stick shift

I do like having the Clutch function enabled. If I shift incorrectly or don't apply the clutch at the right time, the car stalls. Awesome
