    Excellent, thanks for the reply :)
    Now I just need to decide which one to get, hehehe, the MOMO wheel looks like it might be a more solid build *shrug* but i'm not sure
    It's funny (or not) that on the Logitech site, the wheels are roughly the same price in dollars, but over here in the UK the DriveFX is about £20 cheaper.

    I love GTR, one of the best racing games I've ever played as far as realism goes. I played the demo of GTR2 and it felt like the driving physics weren't as good. It seemed a lot easier than the first. But I love playing these games on my force feedback sidewinder set.

    Like the review says, you really have to have a steering wheel. In the first one, you couldn't keep from spinning out in the higher horsepower cars. 100% throttle or none just doesn't work in a simulator.

    EDIT:

    I want that so bad. That's the coolest racing wheel package I've seen. Besides that, all I would need is the cockpit frame and racing seat.

    The first was tougher than the new one by default as most of the "helper" setting are enabled. I find it a touch too easy, but that's all good cause it's crazy configurable.

    I'll be putting the pc in the living room over the weekend to do some "couch" gaming. This will be first on the list!

    Well, i'm thankful that there's clutch support here. I mean, after going from TOCA 3 where i had full manual + clutching, games just didn't seem the same when shifting became the art of just tapping gears...

    ^ You'll be blown away if you think TOCA 3 is realistic.

    I hated that game, but I love GT Legends/GTR 2, you NEED a wheel for it though. :)

    Whilst not a realistic driving game fan I must say I love the new games reviews at bit-tech. I don't go to any other techy sites really so it's great to get a bit of everything right here - cheers guys!

    Glad there's a good sim for those who love this kind of stuff. Great review.

    I personally prefer something like Burnout Takedown for consoles or Trackmania Sunrise for PC. I own both of them and love them to death.

    I'm bumping this to compete w/ the Forza 2 review. I've played both for extended periods of time and as a racing fan would have given them 9 GTR 2, 8 Forza 2. Forza's a blast to play w/ a friend on a couch, but the visuals are a bit less sharp and at times detract from the race. This is obviously not a problem playing 1920x1080p, 4X AA on the PC. The physics and overall feel of the race always seem to draw me in a bit further on GTR 2. You know it's a good game when you forget how long you've been playing, right?

    FWIW, there's a Logitech MOMO force for $60 + shipping from provantage. Not sure about the UK shopping tho. :D
