My System Specs

Default Thrustmaster Ferrari F430 PC Racing wheel....

I've been looking at a racing wheel for a while now... something that I could use with both the PC and potentially a PS3 and came across this wheel.

Thrustmaster - FERRARI F430 Force Feedback Racing Wheel PC - *Réplique exacte du volant de la Ferrari F 430 avec "Manettino" pour des réglages encore plus précis !

Does anyone have this wheel, or can speak to how good/bad it is...
I would love for it to have a clutch and shifter, but hey, I dont want to spend 250+ on a G25. I have this PM'd to 108+ship.

Any thoughts, ideas?

THRUSTmaster, for some odd reason, I like the name.... Being sleep deprived reeeeeeeaaaally isn't working out for me, is it?

No clutch, makes the shifter pointless. I was looking at some of the Logitech products, and other then the G25 or G27, there's not that much else for someone who wants a sim experience (price wise).

I mean, I understand the Ferrari F430 was a semi auto... explains why there is no clutch or shifter (this wheel is I guess a complete mimic of the actual wheel)..

The 430 has the "stupid flappy paddle gear box" instead of a clutch and stick shift
