Hey guys, long time forum member, but I just discovered this thread! I'm also an avid sim racing fan and had no idea this was here. Been using the GTPlanet.net and Forzamotorsport.net forums mostly for console sim topics, and AVS for all my AV hobbies. Anyway, subscribed, I always love AVS threads and glad to see so many FM4 users here!
Anyway, I'm an avid sim racer on the PC, 360 and PS3 and loving FM4 currently. I have done two YouTube video topics with a lot of views some might be interested in. One is about my initial work in progress on a triple-screen sim rig using life-size projection screens and cheapish 3D DLP projectors. The other was a very detailed 7 part series showing how I combined the Fanatec GT3RS alcantara rim on the Fanatec Turbo S body (so it could also work with the 360 and at that time, FM3.) This was before Fanatec decided to make the GT2 which is essentially what I build on my own with support from Fanatec. The vids I made are here in case anyone wanted to check the out:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNU6ITOfzV0http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYQfWB9MHnE
(first of a series)
Anyway, if ANY of you happen to be members of GTPlanet.net forum, which is a great resource for sim racing info (not just about GT5), I could use your help. Fanatec has asked for a list of 10 qualified candidates to beta test the new official Forza wheel higher end model, the CSR Elite. I made the top ten and voting is on now. I tried to make my case with my videos and past experience, but two of the other users have websites too and are drawing in a few more votes.
So if I don't win it's no biggie, but if you are already a member there and hadn't seen this, help a fellow longtime AVS contributor out with a vote if you think I'm a good choice. I'd love to put that through it's paces and make more vids and written reviews to show the game on the top peripheral.
So only people who have already been a member for a month or more there will have votes counted; please don't try to join now and vote, that goes against the spirit and rules of the contest and would be rejected from the count anyway.
Here is where the poll is where any existing members can vote:http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=229227
Sorry to hijack the thread. Appreciate anyone's support, thanks!
