When it comes to sim racing—especially in realistic and competitive games such as iRacing—every driver has their personal preferences, superstitions, and overall preferred way of racing. You could ask 100 different people how they’ve modified their game settings or their sim racing rigs to optimize their performance and you would get 100 different answers!
However, if you’ve ever wondered how a real-world professional driver would do it, then look no further than to NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Anthony Alfredo. Racing the number 78 Chevrolet Camaro for B.J McLeod Motorsport, Anthony uses sim racing as a training tool to prepare himself for the real deal. He actually practices every track the week before the real race on iRacing—meaning that his settings need to be as realistic as they can possibly be! This is why he is equipped with D-BOX haptic actuators, which allow him to feel every subtle movement and to become one with his vehicle; no matter if it’s real or virtual!
In this blog, we’ll dive into Anthony’s most recent videos in the ‘Tips and Tricks’ series created in collaboration with D-BOX. His first round of videos in the series taught you the general racing tips you need to lap your competition, so now its time to apply them with the most realistic settings possible to level up your driving skills!
