Secrets of the SimXperience AccuForce Pro

Secrets is a series of blog posts I started with Secrets of iRacing and which has grown to include Secrets of GTR2, Secrets of Race 07, Secrets of GT Legends, Secrets of Automobilista, Secrets of rFactor 2, and Secrets of the SimXperience AccuForce Pro. The “secrets” part is a little dramatic but there are quite a few tips and tricks I think new users will find very valuable and interesting.

Here’s a taste of what it is and how it plays in games, from Inside Sim Racing and their short review,
In Secrets, I try to focus on the non-obvious or unintuitive so I won’t be covering basics like getting the wheel or installing it, unless there is is something of note to comment onm. You’re probably beyond that yourself so I’ll focus on the more obscure and non-obvious things.
