I was originally looking at the GT2. Got to looking around on their site and the GT1 caught my eye as it looked more like what I was after. I don't need a super strong rig at the moment as I'm still only using a G27 with the Fanatec CSPv3 pedals, though I have a want to upgrade to a OSW or the Fanatec CSWv2.5. Guess it just depends on how much I really want to spend on a rig and if I'm really going to use it enough to justify the price. I'd wait for the HE shifter. I've had my eye on the Fanatec but may wait on the HE myself. Looks like it's going to be as small as the sequential he offers. BTW, which Sparco seat is that? How is the lumbar support?
