Damn, can't watch it, it keeps buffering every couple seconds.
When I try to set lower quality it jumps back to HD.  :grr:

Didn't she say '...predecessor to the G25'?  Tsk tsk.  Since she was clearly hired for her astute journalistic abilities, this is disgraceful!

I thought the camera made her "look" somewhat big...now you are telling me she has no sence of journalism?


Have you seen the outtakes yet lord B, that should change your mind..  She just has a problem with remembering the trivia, that's all.  8-O

@Cas:  Just click pauze, open a new page in your browser and come back to it a bit later... it should be loaded at full quality by then.

Watch it at YouTube, I had the same problem as you Cas when I watched it embedded.

The G27 is an evolution, no revolution. I don't really agree on durability of the G25: I broke the wheel and Rik broke the shifter. It seems like they improved both areas and so I probably get one when they become available over here.

Haha, we don't play together but in fact I got a small issue on my shifter too.

The only thing I wish they had improved were the pedals. For me the trottle has too little resistance.

Just wondering is G27 the wheel or a measurement..

I'm afraid for Logitech that the only people who will be buying this are those with a broken G25 or those who can't be bothered to wait months for their GT3 RS to ship.

Thanks, works fine now.
Not surprised to see you'll buy one, hehe.  lol
I wish for a better shifter too.....still have to open up this one to see if I can find what causes the bleeding jumps out of gear.

@ 8:20

"The wheels are usually down there under our feet"  Man it's like they don't even think about what they are saying anymore.  It's just 'sponsor this' and sponsor that.

Comparing the durability of the G25 seems silly for me.  I think we are all confident these guys don't race with the G25.

doesn't look to be that much better to me

a few extra buttons on the wheel . a plus maybe
gear shifter looks worse to me it only has h pattern no sequential .I use both on mine
pedals slight changes are they worth the price?

and the so called "quieter" calibration  :hmm: I assume they had the mic right inside the casing because that sounded noisier than my G25 does .plus then went on about "weird " noises at certain times

ya would think with all the comments on the net Logitec would have read a few and taken notes to come up with something much better

 I do like the look of the pedals for this {not sure about the wheel}...........fully adjustable + ffb vibration in the brake pedal so you feel lock-ups of the wheels .....interesting

 I have never agreed with change just for the sake of change so an evolution is fine but the lack of sequential seems a de-volution! Not that I use it as I think cars with auto trannys...well..um.....anyways....

 But seriously. I wonder if the change of that might help with the "no-reverse problem" as mine lost reverse in like 4 days.

 I'd have no use for the shift lights, seems kinda' gimmicky but all in all, an update is acceptable. maybe a complete revamp would put the G-25/7 in to high a price bracket and with the fanatec, they now have competition. or will once the Fanatec (possibly) gets accepted beyond the video gamers.

 I do wonder though if Logitech has shot themselves in the foot by merely updating as before the G-25 was a MASSIVE step up from the DFP, as I myself discovered, but I wonder now if when someone asks advice on a forum id the "oldtimers/experienced" will just say "Buy a leftover/used G-25 as it's essentially the same wheel".
 
I dunno, I guess eventually there will be fewer and fewer working G-25s due to attrition but...........

 I think too this depends on how they price it.

 Hopefully, if my wheel ever dies, it will be a long time from now and I'll already have CST pedals and so won't be buying a G-25/G27 wheel just for the "wheel" part. Also since I have the SST shifter and actually use the sequential feature as a handbrake.  So whether I'M interested or not is irelevent so my thinking is towards someone coming in.

 And agreed with Giz about the ffb in the brake pedals of the fanatec but I seem to recall no games actualy support it yet? I'd have been happy with it merely being part of the ffb itself. lol  Don't like the pedals on the Fanatec as they look like fly swatters to me and the wheel itself, well, not an "airbag wheel" fan. I wonder how hard it would be to replace it?

 Has anyone started mdding the Fanatec yet? I think the key to the G-25's success in the sim community is the ease of modding it.

I just realized they did a great job of not reviewing Race On.  We all know it's not a ground breaking release.  It still deserves a proper review though.  Not everyone has the Race07 series.

oh Hell, I forgot to watch the clip!! haha.

 Oh geez. Love his clown shoes. *snort*

 The chick can't drive period, left foot brakes. then again so does the guy, hope not to see THEM on the real roads. lol She reminds me of, there's this "car TV" thing on Saturday's here on Channel 32, don't recall the channel's name or the thing they call this time frame, just they have cheesy "car" shows, (One's called Extreme 4x4 as it was on this week and I don't remember any of the other shows, mostly forgettable stuff) all strung together by little bits of narration by some braindead blonde who wouldn't know a wrench from a rowboat. lol Anyways, this chick reminds me of that.

 Good laugh though. Though yes, a review of Race On would be nice. I fell asleep whilst Miss Saggy Boobs read off her cue card. what'd she say again? lol

 Anyways, lot's of fluff, SOME info, and I do find it hard to take serious someone telling me how "realistic" it is to drive when he left foot brakes and never uses the clutch when shifting, may as well use the flappy paddles. Entertatining but I kept nodding off. Reminds me of most television actually.

 Can't wait for a REAL review, IE: someone here.

Boy you lads are grumpy today :)
We don't have that many Sim Racing shows to watch, I'm glad to have SRT including all it's little idiosyncrasies.
I do agree that the advertising malarky is becoming unbalanced... I know they have to survive, but it does seem a little 'sponsor plug over content' at the moment.
I disagree that left foot braking isn't a valid sim racing technique.

Ever heard of a straight cut gearbox Den  :?:

I use left foot braking in sims all the time btw (and H shifter too)

Also I don't agree with some of you about the loss of the sequential gears. I never used those and it makes the design easier so the H shifter will probably work and feel better thanks to the loss of that seq. gears. So no disappointed for me there.

I just wish they had improved the pedals more. Adjustable resistance would be nice for instance.

Oh good we are free to bag this show - that was a complete waste of 20mins.
I could go on and on but basically i'll keep it simple (mostly cause i'm actively trying to purge that footage from my mind) - they had less than a 2min intro and THAT was the best take.  What were the other attempts - did she fall off the chair the other 30 times.  Ahh that mental image has fixed my frustration.   lol

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.

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:

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 "

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 know what you mean id never pay full price fro anything.A good night out for the wife is mcdonalds or kfc lol

 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.)

I withdraw the comments i made.  The show is great and the people hosting are great.  My backflip has nothing to do with the following article.

Hey, I called her boobs, I will still call her boobs. If she asks where I live I will tell her, hell, if she is close by I will drive out to meet her. She already knows my name and like I said before, I do not mind boobs  :D

(btw, I am not trying to be sexist, it is just that that is what she is on the show)

Now I feel guilty for being a twat...

On topic.  I wish I could get a G27.  One day I will, it looks very nice.  My DFP feels hashed, which kind of pisses me off.  I hardly used it, but over time it's still falling apart.

lol Marcus, I'm sure your current set looks almost brand new  :D

I'll buy the G27 when it's out, I just can't resist and my current G25 shows his age (however I got a spare G25 set lol)
