Hi Guys,

Reason I'm asking, I kind of want to try out an actual rig, or even a basic real entry level one, as I've never driven with FFB bar the absolute cheapest wheel-shaking ever when I was really young, and I just want to get a feel for it, to see if it's worth diving down the rabbit hole?
So hoping someone here in the Pretoria area has a few minutes open at some point in the future for a quick test drive?

I currently have Assetto Corsa, the original one on steam, and have driven a bit, but it's near impossible with keyboard/mouse...

I stay in Faerie Glen in the east of Pretoria, but I'm not too fussed with traveling a bit ;)

Any takers?
Do you look like your pp? Then yes, come race my sIm.

My roomate has a very decent rig with load balanced pedals and belt driven wheel, will ask him if we can arrange something. I sometimes sit in it just to press the clutch a few times, because it feels like racecar. :D

Anrich Anrich might be able to assist. Full setup with VR.
Might cost you a beer or 3 though

There is also a new setup in Centurion Mall called the Ark Gaming, the have 2 rigs there with G29's. Free to play for now if I am not mistaken, so if you pop in you can give it a bash. I was on GT Sport there yesterday, think they have Forza as well.
