:)

but are you ready for the next stage, these people must have steel balls or a steel door to hide behind anyway, think a few of the car sim cockpits have been stolen from fairground rides.

We'll have a nice little ceremony for you Jarkks .. lower you down with the pedals on the coffin ... a little Finlandia playing in the background... will be very tasteful I assure you ... of course while all this is going on we will have 'arranged' for the reallocation of the rest of your racing gear to the honoured membership of SJ :)

As i slide ever further towards the seemingly inevitable "Sim Racers" anorak, i have my eye on these beauty's... can't do all that picture upload crap, so have a look at http://www.clustercompany.com/website/home_eng.php

Yum Yum... only problem is, Mrs R1der is bleating atm... something about 7 year courtship... married 4 years... never had an engagement ring... diamond and emerald... blah blah blah... haven't a clue what she's on about, but it may be important... perhaps i should listen to her, instead of standing there going hmmm... yes dear, your right... hmmm

I reckon if i buy her what she's after, there is a chance these may become available to me... i don't wear jewellery, so perhaps these could be my engagement present (fat chance!)

I can assure you, ive been drewling that website couple times :)

Looks good Dave, but think carefully.. about everything, pedal layout, adjustability etc... the odds are when buying high end gear you are stuck with it for a long time :)
oh yeah... i planned well ahead and bought my woman a big ring in the beginning,
so i she is happy with it  :biggrin:


Now im off to the postal office to get my DFP... as soon as the car arrive home..
should be less than 30 mins though..

What a woman! By took it pretty well, do you mean that she only knocked two of your teeth out? lol lol

Re: adjustability  of those pedals i fancy... according to reviews, there are infinate variations, and if you can't get 'em working, you don't deserve to have feet!

There's not a jury in the land who'd convict!

ehm.. shite.. you are aware that the 3rd pedal is an option right?   meaning this little bit of "adjustible kit" is well over 500 Euro's.... i think those little extra footplates on the G25 will work miracles for you....

but welll.. if you want to pursue happiness with a pair of pedals.. go right ahead... i wont stop you with your "Coco the clown" shoes m8... but i'm also aware you can be quite moody.... so these seem suitable for you as they dont break that easy i recon
