Guys I am so excited. I just purchased a new playseat evolution Forza 3 limited edition and the Fanatec Porsche Turbo S wheel with optional aluminum Sportclub pedals as well as the optional H gear shifter. It's supposed to arrive on Jan 4th. The total cost for the playseat is $350 bucks and the cost for the wheel with pedals an options is $560. So by the time its all done including the game I am out about 1 grand for the most awesome driving experience. I have a deditcated 50" pioneer plasma that I will be using for the sim. I CANT WAIT>.............................

Now I need rfactor 2 and a 1970's F1 mod and my life will be complete!

Post a picture, Andreas, if you want. I would love to have a Playseat, but I fear my wife will divorce me if I buy one.

Ha wheel arrived yet? :p

I had to wait for mine two months longer than scheduled.

Playseat is money well spend. I have mine for two years and it's very comfortable.

As for the Fanatec wheel and pedals, I decided to use it for consoles fun (works great for Forza3), but I won't use it for proper PC sims. I still think G25 is better when you need every inch of precision of your racing line. The clubsport pedals are very though to operate and very rough in their finishing. You need boots to use them :) You will also need some work on them to put them on Playseat pedal holder. By default they end up at very high angle and make it tiring. Check the Fanatec website - they post some ideas how to attach them.

The H/or sequentional shifter is OK, but I don't like the shift paddles. Very uncomfortable to use.

Anyway. lots of fun ahead of you in testing and enjoying new equipment.

Hello Gemini,

Thanks for the feedback. And yes you are absolutely right, the paddles are not very precise and sometimes I miss a gear. The clubsport pedals are awesome. I really love the feel and had good luck so far. Keep in mind that I am only using the setup on Forza 3 right now.
I am wondering on how to attach the clubsport pedals the best way, so I will use your suggestion and check out the Fanatec website for instructions. I will post a pic very soon here.
