It's good to see that you have a seasoned navigator .... with what looks like excellent night vision.
She spoilt an online race or two though, like my other cat jumping on my lap or legdancing

That's a stunning lap Robert, very impressed. I did have to laugh at the low tech solution to getting the monitors on the same level, but an impressive rig just the same. I have to make do with an office chair with wheels, if I stamp on the brakes too hard I'm in danger of flying backwards across the room. ( A poor excuse for my slow times but it's the only one I've got)
lol Sid, sometimes I push the pedals (not fixed) away but funnily enough it's mostly the throttle side having a heavy right foot...have destroyed a few MSFF pedal springs (again always throttle), but have still 2 working MSFF sets, and 2 broken ones for parts
Thanks, I'm kind off lazy and low tech (2x 19" monitor for €25 as well)
When I drive, mostly at evenings, I have lights out and then the immersion is quite good sitting close to the monitors, about 35-40cm/15inches. But need to get a secondhand 21" (have one) then the height proportions will be quite OK with my main 24" (16:10/16:9/16:10). As said, still need to fabricate an aluminum frame to mount the monitors on (the cockpit) and then get used to the cockpit and custom Hitman pedals (those will be way more accurate than my modest MSFF pedals).
Again, having a lot of fun hotlapping at Spa67, it's good to extensively drive here and see how much I did improve over the last 2 years. Getting a lot of good feedback of ppl not knowing GPL, they are surprised how good the track looks! GPL came a long way. Many thanks to all trackmakers and modders. But this track stands out to me, it's incredible!
