    Sorry Gp , the pic never opened the first time i looked.
    Ok thats sorted that then , just need to get the stand sorted that takes it ,
    looks a good choice , and i know its probably a winning choice wouldnt you say, the only downside would be id have no excuses once i have it all set up ..........

    Good work!

    Just be prepared to struggle at first!

    Hits the licence tests in GT6 so you can get a feel for the wheel.

    :D

    Logic: Guys were faster, the Wheel stand pro is awesome, especially for the money. I got the G27 for three years and I'm completely happy with it. It does not work with PS4 (yet?) though. Thrustmaster does, but didn't priesty have some overheating issues? Never happened to me with G27.

    And I don't think you'd be slower with a wheel than with pad, even in the beggining, especially since you drive in RL (which I for example don't).

    Karsten: haha I had the ironing board solution too before I got my Wheel stand pro. A bit cranky though. You should get one too. ;) Driving force GT is a good wheel, it was an official wheel for GT5, if I'm not mistaken. It's quite similar to G27, but it only has 1 force feedback motor, so the FF will be weaker, I suppose.

    We definetely sold him on a wheel , they should give us commission lol

    I considered myself fast with a pad but the wheel makes you faster . It may take a few weeks or months but you will notice it right away when it happens .

    to be honest, i really think more than anything it will help when i do make mistakes , i have noticed that others like gop and you Skengd , often recover from moments you have , but i never do , with the pad its so hard to be exact in correcting in a split second.
    i did use the siatik or whatever its called motion detected steering on the first gp game that came out and got used to that , and was dissapointed that they did away with that and went to joystick control.
    but yes lookibng forward to it vv much

    You will need to get used to it... At first you'll be tired when use it a lot because you have to use your arms like real driving... But it will reward you with better car control and also precision in acceleration and braking compared to joypad sticks

    if you'll kick my a$$ i'll feel lost lol.

    the ironing boards is a bad solution, i lost cars a few times because FF lifted or moved it lol. sadly no batter options so far...

    Yes Karsten, but you can press your trousers during a pitstop , so it has upsides too .

    So that's why he insisted on Nürburgring 24h. He needed to iron his laundry while on Döttinger höhe. :)
