    Get on TDU and cruise all day

    Only problem I've had with the G25 is, on a wooden floor the pedals slide, so make sure your on carpet or have some books behind the pedals Other than that no problems.

    Oh yea, the force feed back can be a bit um " Heavy " I couldn't play TDU on full Force Feedback especially for drifting


    Btw how much you pay for the G25 from Dixons?

    Tip 1: Do not throw it out of the window!

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Get GTR2 and Colin McRae : DiRT. It is simply amazing. Play around with all the force feedback settings until you are comfortable with something you enjoy!

    Gave up with the torrent, tried downloading a couple of race sims some of you suggested, left the computer on all night (thus giving me a terrible nights sleep as it is so loud, even in another room) But just to cap it all off i woke his morning to the sound of 8 very loud fans to realise the computer had not ever gone on to hibernate and both the downloads failed .
    Good news though is that the DHL tracker says it arrived at the coventry depot at 11PM last night (Which is like 13 miles from me )
    But frustratingly i have to go to school on THE worst day of lessons and wait around until 10 past three, at which time I get on the bus (which is a city bus from like nineteen seventy something and does a route which is on country roads [Not a good combination methinks]) And hope the psychotic driver doesnt send us into a hedge. Oh yeah and my bag broke so i have to carry around a BHS carrier bag :eek_blue: GAYYY
