    Just got my G27 and I am loving it ;)

    Used a Microsoft Sidewinder wheel for ages, an thought I wasnt too bad at racing, the G27 is the first wheel I have used with a clutch and gear shifter, (I was going to add this in the "what made you laugh today" thread) as I found out how bad of a driver I actually am.
    I am 38 and never got around or was bothered to go for a driving licence, now after using this I think its best for the general public that I dont go for a driving licence :D

    My problem is I keep forgetting to brake with my right foot (as I am used to only two peddles) and I find myself cruising in 3rd or 4th half the time :O_o:


    Although I would like to add Z cars on rfactor is a blast with stick and clutch :thumbsup:

    G25 with a modded brake pedal. I also have a Fanatec CSR for when i had a 360 (360 is Broken) but is currently sitting in it's box. I like the G25 better than the CSR.

    I got me a G27 last year and used it for 6 months. After all that time I was still slightly slower with the G27 than with the pad, so I sold the G27 rig.
    I still have a MOMO Force hangin around here somewhere, but I still prefer the pad.

    Driving Force GT, I love it, it has a lot of buttons. Also use the PS3 controller for more arcade games that aren't good with a wheel.
