C'mon Pete and Lord B - get yourselves a girl and give us a real simjunkies.tv show.

Totally unnecessary, Lord B's summer collection is quite quite complete (In a Swinging London 60's style)... I'm guessing you haven't seen the photos of him posing on the bonnet of a Union Jack Mini?

If any two or three Junkies living close enough want to give them some competition, I highly encourage you to do so.  I think we've got enough connections now that I could get us some products to review.  I have only one rule.  No large breasted women hosts, unless they are an active Sim racer.  You don't see Top Gear putting a large breasted tart in a Porsche telling us how it compares to last years model.  pffft

As Dawesy Jr. stated.  That was a waste of 20 minutes.  Way too long in my opinion.  Get the facts, get them out there, have some fun if you can, and roll the credits.

*I just realized something...

I have the Logitech G940 and a Rinoseat on their way to my house for a review.  Shit... I hope I don't have to eat my hat.

I still think you are being harsh. Maybe it's because I'm not a 'car guy' per se, or a dedicated sim racer, but slagging of women never gets a thumbs up in my book.

 I'm just not a fan of using Bimbos to get ratings.  When they drop to that level I have no problem slagging them. lol

 They seriously should have bought the poor girl a bra. :rotfl: :rotfl: :D

The lack of sequential mode on the shifter is a deal breaker for me. I have a G25 and use sequential more than the gated shifter or paddles (I try to stay true to the car I am using in the sim). The only gain would be the shift lights (look very good, but not practical for me, I have the same thing on my screen) and an extra 4 buttons on the front of the wheel (this I would really like, but not without the sequential mode!).

As for SRT, these guys I think have been doing a good thing for the community and it is not like we pay to watch them, but I also do not mind some boobs with my SRT. It is a youtube show after all made by some guys that are sim racers, not producers.

Well I also try to use the most realistic shift method and since I mainly race GTL and P&G that is the gated shifter, but I can imagine that if you race other types of cars the lack of the seq. gears is a shame. Maybe Logitech should make 2 different shifters: one gated and one sequential so people can choose. Both combined into one is however searching for trouble I think.

Well I will meet you halfway Kristof in saying that I think the G25 is a great shifter at being both gated and sequential....when it dose not have issues. I must admit I have had an odd issue or two (but I have also modified the internals some), but for the most part it is a good design from my experiences-that is why I will be sticking with it for sure.  I have to have sequential for GT sports cars, CART, F3000. Hell, it even feels better than paddle shifting, even if it is the same thing in a way.

Ok, maybe trouble is not the right way to put it, but when focussing solely on gated (or seq.) shifter they can improve the feeling of that. The design is also less complex and the possiblity on problems is reduced.

I wonder whether you could use a G25 shifter in combination with a G27 steering wheel for instance  :)

 I thought Kristof meant the reverse gear going. Mine went after less then a week. I wonder if the redesign might address that?

 I'd think the G-25 shifter would work with the G-27 as it appears that the only difference would be mechancal mainly. Could be interesting. I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. lol

I don't see why not as long as the ports are the same :)

This seems to be a good thing for me. I love my G25 but it is starting to show it's age. The pedals have already been cleaned out and I feel that they need further cleaning and greasing. The calibration cog had to be repaired on mine as well. I don't ever use sequential shift so I wouldn't miss that. I like what they were saying about the G27 feel and the force feedback but I am not sure how I would like the 6 button setup. I have fat fingers lol

The adjustable pedals are a great idea as well. I think I am pretty much sold. I could then take my time and correct the issues with my G25 for re-sale or use as a back up. If I don't like the G27 I can always go back :)

Hopefully some of the retailers around here will have a demo rig setup to try it out and compare since this is the second generation of the G series.

/OH by the way... I thought the girl in the vid wasn't that bad on the eyes. I could get into that... if you know what I mean  :innocent:

Pete, you are right.  It's not right to cut her down.

I will say though.  My feelings on the subject stretch to real life as well.  Car dealerships have a habit of hiring attractive women salespeople.  In my experience they know feck all about the cars they are offering.  They simply try to move cars based off of looks.  I worked in that market for a number of years, and it still amazes me that men can be tickled into buying a car like that.

I prefer people who know their product.  The guys that started it know sim racing.  No doubt about it.  I have enjoyed the show in the past.   I just feel that while the review was complete enough, the completely glossed over Race On.  They give the release date, and nothing more.

You are right too, Andy.  It is a show on youtube...

They didn't need a large chested news reader.

 The male salesmen don't know much either. lol

 Couple years ago I had a Nissan guy showing me a comparison of the Ford F150 and Titan. I ended up telling HIM the diffferences and where his printed stuff was wrong. lol Ironically, I got a call a few months ago from our local Mitsubishi dealer after requesting some literature on the EVO and spoke for a hour to a lady salesperson who was incredibly knowledgable about both her product and the history of Mitsubishi and it's history in Canada. The experience made me wish I could afford a new car just to have an excuse to go by there and talk cars with her.


 Anyways, I noticed on Logitech's site they have the G-25 and G-27 both still listed and at the same price!! Heeheehee. I also saw a lot of the promo pics for the G-27 are the G-25. Including the one showing someone with their hand switching the sequential switch. Ooops! lol

Pete's always right, even when he made me google: idiosyncrasies      Dagnabbit, he also had the plural version correct... cant catch the guy on anything....


It was however quite funny to see her foot bearely touching the throttle at the end of the clip, whilst she did her lines... and tried to stay on track with 25 mph... whereas the boys can talk and race at the same time.... was that just another sight of multitasking gone wrong  i saw?  :rotfl:

She's a lovely girl, be it somewhat heavy boned, trying to make it interesting for some and as she's quite new to simracing i just laugh it off most of the times.


Ehr.. wasn't Cato possibly filming at goodwood...or putting up some kinda live-cam so you guys could "look after us?"

 i bet you'd rather see Jessica after that, them my fat arse bouncing around on your screens!!  :rotfl:

i just checked the price on logitech for the g27 and in the uk its £329.99 so i don`t think the updates are worth £200 difference to what i paid on the g25 which was £125

There is the official Logitech price and there is the price at your retailer lol. Currently the official price for a G25 (in Belgium) is 349,99 euro (the same as a G27 btw) and I can buy one at a store for 199 euro.  :)

I read a review that the guy called logitech and they said the G25 shifter will NOT work with the G27 as the drivers are not compatible.

But surely a driver could be altered...

 I'd love to see an SJ show. "Simunkie TV!!" Sure be better then that.

 Well, I can't blame them. Looks like they're modelling tyhe shiow after those shows I mentioned earlier which is why we have nothing like Top Gear. North American TV is Lobotomized, Commercialized crap in general. Then again, Reality TV is popular here so what would one expect? So, in essence, one can't expect much.

 What would be a great review me thinks would be if that guy at NoGrip that did the Fanatec review did a G-27 review. THAT was a great review!!!!

 Beta's link has a pretty good review too. I even used the tip for Race 07 myself as that's been irritating me for a bit. lol  thumbs up thumbs up

 I found this line quite funny:
"our small, demanding (and sometimes irritating) community "

 I think that describes most of us!! lol

 Funny too is the U.S. price is still a good 20-50 bucks less then many places here sell the G-25 for $CDN. Though I just noticed Tiger Direct dropped it to $270.

 I got mine for that range as it was 50 bucks or more cheaper then everyone else. (Tiger Direct was asking like $340 at the time a year ago.)
