iFlag for iRacing Review by The Simpit

The Simpit presents our review of the iFlag Display by MB Motorsports.

The iFlag display is an external display that shows the flag conditions of a race in iRacing.  It is an 8 x 8 array of super bright colored LED's that light up much brighter than the in game flags seen on the game overlays.

The iFlag display is an open source DIY project that was developed by Petr Vostel.  This design uses an arduino board combined with the LED array and then some software to go along with it.  For those with talent it is a great project.

For those who don't have the time, the skills or the energy to build their own, MB Motorsports is there to fill the void.  They pre build the iFlag displays and make them available for purchase in a few variations.  They also make enclosures to help out other DIY builders.

In this review Shaun goes through its construction, its features and its installation and then he uses it on track to see how it looks.

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.
