Shows how much attention Ive paid to sim gear of late :oops:

Fanatec have very much been on my radar as my next wheel. It's been between that and the Thrustmaster F1, but like Logitech I don't believe that works on Xbox, which brings me back to Fanatec. Specifically the Clubsport that allows the interchangeable F1 style wheel. Most of the racing I enjoy has been in F1 or single seater cars, and to have such a perfect wheel as the Clubsports "F1 Style" would be great, along with its regular wheel. If I ever step back into iRacing it will be with decent kit like that.

Anyway not to drag this off topic further, seeing this Forza Horizon and thinking of the rest of the series really is tempting me over to an Xbox.

Yeah that's the place to get the stuff for sure, have them bookmarked :) Forgotten the guys name but frequently read his posts in the Aussie forum section at iRacing, seems like a very good sort and just on that fact alone I'd highly recommend them to anyone after sim gear . If I remember correctly they ran a promo comp here a while back too?

Thanks for the offer and info Cas. Probably still 6mths away before I commit money to the future sim setup, and I'm pretty sure Pagnian are going to see a fist full of my dollars once I'm ready :) (planning on Fanatec Clubsport or Thrustmaster F1 wheel, GTpro V2 cockpit and probably a Buttkicker and quality shifter, that's the goal anyway once I justify it to my wallet)

I purchased my Next Level Racing GTExtreme Cockpit and Fanatec CSR Wheel combo from there. Was expensive, but totally worth it. Wheel works awesome with Horizon. If anyone wants to do some coop challenges, add me - nukejockey - to xblive, I don't have any friends that play it =(

Relaxed a bit tonight and took the toyota apex out for a cruse. Was good to burn around, haven't had much time to play this lately :(. Found a nice tunnel to take a few quick snaps :).

I love driving at night! It's so awesome, esp with pop-up headlights!

Anyways, I also took my '86 out for a 'spin' :P

Thinking of picking this up on boxing day from BigW (or price match at EB) for $48. Is this the cheapest price from a retail store, or does someone know of a cheaper price?
