    I have a Logitech G25 and looking for a budget button box setup in order to be able to easily access setting such as pit controls, brake balance, engine mapping etc.

    Anyone got any recommendations? Best i found so far seems to be the Thrustmaster MFD Cougar designed for flight sims.

    You have probably seen this already but Shaun Cole of The Sim Pit did a piece on using the TM Cougar MFD's as button boxes. Add a www. to the front of this as I can't post direct links to YT here. youtube.com/watch?v=jxzGbCzzitw.

    I'm going to get some Simraceway SRW-S1 wheels and strip the handles from them. If all goes well it'll give me 2 button boxes (no idea why I need 2 but I'm big on symmetry) for about 40 euro each and going to mount them onto a couple of these music stands which I'm waiting to arrive from Amazon UK. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stagg-MUS-A..._sbs_MI_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=09PD2FXKK34JAZXM8F0F with keyboard and trackpad below them.
