    Best simracing people, I need little advice for buy a new wheel. My g27 is little old and I wants something new. Trustmaster pc-tc or fanatec wheelbase 2.5 with loadcell pendals...?
    Budget is 1500 euro. I want something waterproof for the upcomming 10 years... and important I drive for manny years with my bare feet.. because I have more feel in the pendals :laugh: Is this possible with load cell pendals or is this to pro? And last.... I have no credit cards.. can you pay by fanatec with ideal?

    Best post ever!

    I’d go with the fanatec and start wearing boots!

    @muzikant: Wait until tomorrow when Fanatec show us more details of the DD Wheel.

    I have a CSL Elite with LC pedals (and the McLaren GT3 wheel). Very satisfied. And yes you can use the loadcell brake pedal without wearing clothes...uuuh socks.

    Go for Fanatec, I don’t recommend using it in the rain though, especially for 10 years. You might also want to get some pedals instead of pendals as they will make you go faster while sitting still, though again not while in the rain. As for paying for it, yes Fanatec do take ideal, as in ideally you pay with some sort of card, doesn’t have to be a credit card but surely you have a debit one? Or are you on the run from the police, mafia, assassins, inland revenue?

    Well t500rs pedals is comfortably enough. I have no experience with the v3 naked.

    I guess you mean ts-pc? Just ordered one. Been quite happy with the thrustmaster tx. If budget fits I would probably get a cswv2.5 but that dont suite my playseat challenge for my backup rig. I run osw on my main one. There is some solutions that at least touches on that budget.

    No, I was the one bullied in school, nearly killed myself if you really want to know. It was a light hearted joke which I’m sure many would understand, lighten up a little. How you can call that bullying is ridiculous, lose your sense of humour somewhere?

    1500€ Budget for pedals + base or just the base?
    If it is just the Base, buy an OSW from augury simulations or a SimRacingBay kit from Tomo Meglic

    If it is for both pedals and base, the best consumer base you can get is a CSW V2.5, nothing more than that before going the direct drive way.´

    And pedals you can choose the ClubSport Pedals which are great loadcell.

    Or you could go the heusinkveld way with the 2 pedals bundle

    Any load cell pedals you get will probably require an upgrade from barefoot to socks too.
