When you use the rig how long is a session? Do you play for two-hours at a sitting ?

For a rig that moves around like that I'm pretty sure it'll cost 5-10k+

I'm a bit surprised to not see more people either use VR in addition to or completely swap out their monitor setup for it. It adds a whole other level of realism. Just being able to look through corners like you would in real life is such a difference.

From what I have seen, it's tricky to get the VR to be jitter free, some have significant lag issues. And many get motion sick during long races.
I have a triple monitor setup that is curved and the visibility is great. On iRacing it seems that more members use the monitors than VR. The three monitors are actually more expensive as well, plus stand, etc, so it's certainly not an economic decision. 🤔
But to each their own.
