Welcome. I knew there were more people that were a bit tired of Forza after a year.

For those interested, I decided on a wheel and stand to get. Together it will come to around $450 including shipping.

Logitech G27: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-941-0.../dp/B001NT9TK4


Apiga AP2 Wheel Stand: Only available on Ebay right now. http://cgi.ebay.com/APIGA-AP2-Foldab...item4aa3747ea0

I'm with you that $200 for some wireframe metal is crazy. But my thinking is, if im going to do it at all I might as well do it right.

I won't enjoy it any other way. And that stand seems to be the best/most stable option before going into a full out chassis. Which costs about $300+, and takes up a lot more room for such a single purpose.

On the G27. Amazon has them but the price keeps hopping around. Few day ago I saw it at $201, a day later @ $249, yesturday @ $221, and now back to $249.

Since there is about 3 weeks before F1 2010 comes out, I figure i'll wait another week to try to catch it at $200.

Nah, I still play that game almost everyday. I just got good at tuning (gearing, damping, spring rates, differential rates, etc) and it's like a whole new game. Plus I've gotten better at liveries.

I know I'll love GT5 but I think it'll be a different interest. I'm a graphics whore and the lighting elements plus multiple different racing types have me sold.

Just got my G27 in the mail. It is awesome. I can't wait to break it in!

BTW, to anyone thinking of getting one, Amazon has it for $219.99 right now.

I actually haven't really gotten a chance to use it yet. I have my stand arriving here in a day or two. When they land, I'll decide on whether to pick up prologue early or wait til next week for F1 2010.

Initial impressions just on the wheel though are awesome. I couldn't be happier with all the parts. My only complaint is that the leather wrapping on the wheel isn't tight enough in the corners where it meets the spokes. But the rest of it is smoother and looks pretty sharp. I'm looking at finding a F1 wheel replica to put on it anyways, and the fact that I can even switch the wheel out leaves me ecstatic.

It's hard to pick up in one go. I learned by practicing and reading online tutorials. You can adjust almost any part of a car's behavior so long as you buy the corresponding race-spec parts (race trans, race springs, etc).

The tuning menu allows you change a car's entry, exit and steady state understeer/oversteer habits, so if you have a car that's slow to tuck its nose into a corner and quick to throw the tail out once you're half way through, you can get rid of, or at least quell, most of that behavior. The menus have explanations on how to adjust your roll bars, springs and dampers.

Other examples:
-If a car feels floaty (slow to respond, rotates or slides like it's on a cloud), stiffen the springs and damper rates and lower the car a bit.

-If your gears are too long and you have a peaky engine, buy either the sport or race trans. The sport allows you to adjust the final drive (alters all gears proportionally), and the race allows you to custom tailor a set of gear ratios that can make a car perfect for any course (also defaults the gear numbering to 6 every time you buy it).

-If your car throws its ass out with the slightest bit of throttle (in RWD cars that is), lower the acceleration differential rate by 10% increments until it starts to lay down power smoothly, but don't reduce the rate too much or you'll hamper acceleration.

-Likewise, if your car happens to oversteer too easily when you lift off the throttle, tweak the deceleration differential.

-Most important tuning aspect of any AWD car comes with the 2-Way differential. It allows you to tweak the center diff so that you can decide how much torque is apportioned between the front and rear wheels. I almost always leave it at 30/70 - F/R or 25/75, so that when I apply power the car rotates but in a way that's almost completely neutral.

There's tons of other stuff, you just have to practice. It's complicated at first but then you'll find yourself wasting time tuning everything lol.

I actually bought a 360 last year just to play forza3 until GT5 comes out. I'm still deciding if I should sell 360, since I bought PS3 about 3 years back when I thought GT5 was coming out that year or hopefully sooner. It'll be worth for long waiting. Sounds like you have 20 games for 360, just keep 360 and buy a PS3 w/ GT5. Also, definitely get a Logitec GT25/28 Wheel because its amazing w/ a clutch. I've been playing on GT5 demos and prologue the last couple years.
