    I thought it would be interesting to see what other members are using to race online with their PS3's and 360's. I'm hoping to order a Fanatec wheel in the not too distant future but currently I'm using a Logitech G25 fitted to a GameRacer racing seat/frame which I have hooked up to my PS3 which is a 60GB model with a 500GB HDD fitted and running through a Sharp 46" 1080P LCD TV.

    Found them.

    I was using my sisters old PC desk (pink). I took the bottom out so the pedals are on the floor and also because they were to high and kept falling off.

    I'm looking at building one of these.

    http://www.thewayiplay.com/mainforum/index.php?topic=894.0

    But I need to finish some house renovations first.
    Hoping to have it ready by Xmas & the full GT5.
    Currently using the joypad :( on PS3 but have a Logitech DFP :) but using it on the PS3 is a bit awkward at the moment:(
