Anybody here race on iRacing? It is an amazing racing simulator. 

 

You can use a Force Feedback wheel, and iRacing sends the wheel infomration so that you feel what the car is doing on the track. You can feel tightness, loose conditions, and every bump out there.

 

iRacing laser surveys each track that they have and they are accurate to within 2 mm. The tracks grip level is also variable based on the tyep/condition of the track surface and temperature. The cars have an amazing physics engine based on real-life attributes derived from CAD dimensions, weight, and dyno data.

I've never played it.  I'm not generally a realistic racer fan, but this does sound pretty cool.  I'd need to pick up a cheap wheel at least.
