Ricmotech Logitech Load Cell Kit Review

Hardware

Sim Racing Garage is testing the Ricmotech Brake Load Cell Conversion Kit for Logitech G25, G27, G29 and G920 (v2)

If you are looking for a soft and mushy brake pedal then this is not the load cell for you, but if you are looking for a load cell upgrade kit that has been engineered to replicate the feel and reaction of a real race car brake system then you have found it. This load cell kit is designed to replicate the pedal travel and resistance of Formula 1, Daytona Prototypes. When the brake pedal is under mid to full braking load the pedal remains at a steady height to make heel-toe downshifting possible without upsetting the balance of the car.

The Kid is also available for Thrustmaster T500RS & T3PA-PRO Pedals

What is going on with Dakar 18 ?

Dakar

Bigmoon Studios plan is to publish Dakar this summer. But how realistic is that?

Bigmoon Studios state that all five classes from the Dakar Rally (Cars, Bikes, Trucks, Quads and SxS) will be represented in the game. Also they say there will be…

“one of the biggest open worlds ever made in a racing simulation”
“stunning visuals”
” singleplayer, online and offline multiplayer”

But all we see so far are some 20 seconds clip´s of gameplay.

Do you think what they say is realistic? Dakar will be released this summer?

Here is a video summery of Gameplay they published so far.

The Feel VR Budget Direct Drive Wheel and Loadcell Pedal Set is Now Available On Kickstarter

Hardware

It has been long in the making and heavily discussed, and as it looks now, it is becoming a reality! Feel VR has launched its budget-oriented direct drive wheel and pedal set on Kickstarter , and within a day backers have quadrupled the initial funding goal!

As you may know, direct-drive wheels are really where it is at, in terms of force feedback performance. Hence, many manufacturers have already jumped aboard the bandwagon and have released many difference direct-drive wheels. And whilst they nearly all convince users of their superior quality, they all come with a hefty price tag.

Feel VR is now offering a direct-drive wheel at an “honest” price of $399 (early-bird price; later on, $ 669), which is still a lot of money, but more than halves prices of existing direct-drive wheels.

Forza Horizon 4 will be unveiled at E3 2018 claims Xbox Spain

Forza

It’s probably the most easily guessable unveil in the world, but the head of Xbox in Spain and Portugal has seemingly confirmed that Forza Horizon 4 will be announced at E3 in June.

Microsoft has been releasing a new Forza every year since 2011, alternating between the original Forza Motorsport games and the more arcadey Forza Horizon titles.

It’s Forza Horizon’s turn this year and according to Microsoft’s Fernanda Delgado, ‘There have been many speculations about where the next Forza Horizon will be and that is what we will tell later at E3’.

According to DSOGaming Delgado made the remarks to Spanish website Gamereactor, although the original story seems to have been taken down.

Which makes sense if it’s true because we’re pretty sure Microsoft didn’t want the game being revealed in such an off-hand manner.

It would be more surprising if it wasn’t true though and the real question is where the game will be set, with previous rumours suggesting Japan and Africa as the frontrunners.
