I think its worth creating a seperate topic for this topic and I am sure quite some wonder whether its a big update or not.
This is exactly what I did: I had a small mige sc1 system from Simracingbay before and updated to the SC2 Ultimate now so I can report my (completely subjective) experience.
Here a pic from my old mige just as proof:
It was with a Sparco 300 and Martin Ascher Plate.
Now my new updated rig with the SC2 Ultimate and L Plate on a Sportline Competition 300 wheel:
I thought long time how to describe the update and came to this:
When I started sim racing (iRacing to be specific) in 2016 with a fanatec v2I always wondered about this: is it that difficult to catch a car that looses balance?
The slightest thing went wrong and boom I lost balance no matter what I did and countersteered I ended up dead…
Then with many hours more I managed to catch here and there then I bought the Simucube 1 which was a huge improvement in feel but the balancing feeling (or rather the lack of it) stayed.
I was convinced what many write in the forums: its something that in real cars come from the “butt” feeling: the gforces and not really transferable to force feedback.
Then I had many hours in iracing and some small (slides etc) ones I could catch and from time to time a big save too but by sheer experience not really by feel!
Now I have the ultimate for 3 days in action with basically the same settings and I totally can easily catch situations where you would think in a real world you could: like going over grass and so on.
Its like magic and feels completely natural. Also it feels super smooth with stll details transported more like real steering.
I am not 100% sure what is the secret sauce also it doesnt feel like cheating because it feels like a normal car would behave (yes the DBox 4250i helps too of course).
I do think the faster processor might have to do with it reducing latency I dont know but it is an absolut game changer for me!
Now its a lot of money and the SC1 is already great but this is definately another leage in my personal subjective opinion and was 1000% worth the upgrade to me.
