My bleeder block decided to blow today. Top piece is gone. Driving normal went to shift into gear n clutch just popped to the floor quickly n stay there. Anyone can lead me to the right direction? Should I order a new bleeder block?

I also got a leaking iAbed RMS could that caused this?

Previous block had the yellow delay valve removed.

I’ve never messed with a setup like that. What is the feedback through the wheel like? I’m sure you get what you pay for with a gaming setup.
It's surprisingly good.. kind of hard to explain through text but it feels pretty natural. It's an entry level setup so nothing crazy but still tons of fun. This rig was more to test the waters, might move up to a more hardcore setup like Fanatec but those get silly expensive quick.

I recorded a video to hopefully give you a better idea

Spulen and ECS have new bleeder blocks available but personally I'd try to just replace the bleeder piece from the dealer if possible

The missing piece is sold seperately at a dealer? I feel like the dealer would take forever and cost a lot
Not sure if they sell it separately or not. OEM probably won't cost more than the aftermarket ones ($100) and if you can pick it up at the dealer that obviously won't take as long as waiting for ECS to ship it you during the holiday season

That's a entry level setup, great for getting your feet wet and deciding if you want to do racing Sims. It's good for moire casual racing games.

If you're going to do iracing, you need better pedals. You really want at least something like the CSL elite with the pressure sensitive brake.

You can make a potometer based brake work with some tweaking of calibration files in iracing, but pedals are where you gain the most bang for the buck in Sim gear.

I expected more flex/movement from that setup, not bad.

I'm just getting my sim rig together now. I went crazy considering it is my first one, I don't game at all. Aluminum profile chassis, Simucube DD wheel, Heusinkveld pedals, Oculus VR instead of a monitor. The last part I am waiting on is a PC gaming computer, which a buddy is building for me. I got it to help me practice for when I do HPDE events. I think my wife likes it because it is safer that driving on the track :)

Online shopped so I can get rid of it. I'm honestly tired of having a daily driver that I care so much about. I got hit by a semi back in August, and now that it's finally all fixed someone hits me in a parking lot and doesn't leave a note. I just need a beater that I drive every day and don't give a shit about.

im in the same place. Selling my car private sale Tuesday and likely not buying a “nice” Car for 2+ Years. I want a beater that doesn’t cost me monthly payments yet is reliable for a year or two so I can dump it for about what I paid for it when I’m in a better position / have a garage for my next car
