    I have a Logitech G25 (the wheel with a shifter and a clutch) for Gran Turismo Prologue on PS3, and I realized I still had my old Driving Force Pro (the 900 degree wheel for GT4) ... so I need some kind of racing cockpit thingys. I figured since the game has split-screen this was the best way to go.

    I spent the last week looking for some seats, and checked out a few on Craigslist from used cars, but they were all pretty crappy. Then last night I scored big time... found two racing seats (one Corbeau bucket in vinyl and one regular style racing seat). I paid only $100 for BOTH seats, so I am pretty jazzed.

    There are some crazy-ass flight simulator enthusiasts who do outlandish things. This is from circa 1998.[​IMG]



    More currently, a retired airline pilot decided it was time to get down to business and has spent ~ $200K on a 737 mock-up that includes a lot of real parts. . .
