Did you miss the live stream for yesterday racing action? No worries, catch up on the replay right here!

On Thursday, January 28th at 5:30 PM ET we will be hosting a livestream featuing some racing by several of our writers.  We welcome our readers to join up and race with us!  None of us are professionals, so there is a very good chance that anyone that joins can easily outrace us!

We have teamed up with Thrustmaster to give away the TM T150 Racing Wheel!  The MSRP on this number is $199.99, but we are giving it away for free.  This was reviewed a few months ago and the results were very good for the price point.  You can read that entire review here!

We will be playing multiple games throughout the livestream, so get those Steam clients fired up and updated.

DiRT Rally

We will be racing through the Rallycross portion of DR.  These are fun races and fairly quick.  Don't forget the Joker lap!

 

Project CARS

This is another favorite and features a ton of tracks and cars with some interesting tire (tyre) physics thrown in for good measure!

 

Assetto Corsa

Another fan favorite with lovely graphics and handling/physics that match the best games out there.

 

We will be announcing how to join up in the contest during the livestream!  Be sure to tune in!

So to win this prize, I assume I would need one of the 3 games above and out race everyone else? If so I'll def, will stop playing division for a bit to try to win this.

I think you only need to watch the stream and listen in if you want to win.  Racing will be fun, but not required to win.

Ahhh, that would make more sense. Well, I guess I'll watch the stream and be ready to try to win.

We also may end up playing some DiRT 3, since most everyone also has that title and we can do a couple stages!

Will it be DiRT 3 or DiRT 3 complete edition (I have both, not sure what the differences will be)?

Wish I could join. Unfortunately, the youngin' and I will be in the middle of our commute

Do I win anything if I ram Ryan off the road?

You have the reward of a job well done.

I want to really know if Project Cars is worth the money?

It's on my wish list ,but I can't decide if it's really worth it.

Josh?

It is ok.  Graphics look nice.  Physics is OK.  FFB is better than most, but not as good as DR.  Huge amount of cars and tracks, far more than AC.  They constantly update it, so that is nice.

I'm from France! What will be the time for me? I wanna watch!!!

January 28, 2016 | 07:23 AM - Posted by Josh Walrath

I guess you are 6 hours ahead... so 11:30 PM your time?

January 28, 2016 | 01:45 PM - Posted by remc86007

Anyone else think that controller is hideous?

January 28, 2016 | 03:02 PM - Posted by Josh Walrath

I guess you don't like blue?  In real life it is not nearly so bright looking.

January 28, 2016 | 09:02 PM - Posted by remc86007

It looks exactly like a $50 racing wheel I had 14 years ago for my PS2. Maybe the picture just isn't flattering. Also, although I like blue on most things, it just doesn't go well with wheels in my opinion.

January 28, 2016 | 11:37 PM - Posted by Josh Walrath

I can see that.  Happily, the internals are much better than a $50 wheel from back in the day.

At some point you have to realize that this is also designed to work with a 400 dollar ish console. For that demographic if they want to sell lots of these they can't be super expensive, and cutting cost on looks is a good place to start.

However if you've got the money there are plenty of wheels well over a thousand dollars and some lower that look and feel every bit real.
