Average wheel use by sim racers per week for estimated lifespan of wheelbases
It would be interested to see what the average hours per week sim racers put in. I average about 2 hours per day, so 14 hours per week. I have a DD1 which I purchased in April last year (2019) on release, so it will be 12 months old in a few months.
The wheel base looks like it has packed it in as there is no longer wheel input. So just under 800 hours per year, I don't think a direct drive wheel will last much longer than that, due to the excessive forces, particularly without servicing.
I hope I'm wrong, but it's not looking good.
What is everyone else's average per week/year? And, do we think they can sustain the punishment?
