|Now in my racing I can look into the
corner and see the apex as well as being able to check over my shoulder
for cars that are or I am overtaking. The added dimension of being in
the car is the largest addition to me. It is seamless and is not
"gimmicky" as I had thought at first. Once you go to the point to build
a cockpit, start adding buttons, bass shakers etc you really owe it to
yourself to at least try the TrackIR.
Play the video to the right and you
can see the difference, and if you are familiar with EA F1 Challenge you
can see how much it will help to be able to look into what was a blind
corner. I used SPA as the track for the video, but I should have used
Monaco to show off the real ability of the system.
Not to sound like a commercial, but any
gaming fan really owes it to their hobby to try this device. For $200
you can't go wrong, and with the great support I received from Vincent

The Vector option is an add on to the
Version 3 hardware, and is standard on the current Version 4 I think. I
thought the Vector was only good for Flight Sims or other games that
support 6 axis, OH was I WRONG. The accuracy improvement and smoothness
seen by going from a single dot tracking to the vector 3 dot mode is
In summary you have to try this thing,
and you have to get the vector option. Any self respecting SIM racer
won't be without!
