Figured I would post a short review about the 8k and iracing as I know that there is going to be a lot of sim racers egar to know about how the headset functions with iracing
I couldn’t be more impressed. I did have issues with the initial setting up process with pitool and a few other little details but the members of this forum board as well as previous topics posted on here provided enough information to solve those problems and get going.
Once I had the headset up and running it didn’t take to long to tweak some of the graphics settings to get a very quality image and stable fps in iracing. The field of view is a game changer, so for those of you wondering if this headset is that big of a step up from a rift or a vive and can personally tell you it 100% is. The image is better but not mind blowing better, but if it’s just one step up in the image department it’s 10 steps up in the field of view department.
There are a few things that you have to change with what we have been programmed to do with a rift or vive as far as a few settings in the iracing rendererdx11 file but that’s a topic for a different day.
The only knock I have so far is tracking issues with the vive base station. I was primarily a rift user so I’m not to familiar with them and never was able to figure out a way to get the headset to track proplerly and when I did get it paired in pitool and steamvr the tracking wasn’t the best and created some issues in game so I turned off light house tracking in pitool and just ran iracing With the the headset tracking. It’s not perfect because it does limit you forward and backward head movements but I’m sure I will be able to eventually sort the issue out in the coming days.
In summary I will tell all of you either still egarly awaiting your Pimax headset or those of you on the fence about getting one when it comes to iracing I say go all in.
