    It might be a good idea to see what devices are used here.

    I am using the T150, Thrustmaster VG T3PA-PRO pedals and the TH8A Add-On Gearbox Shifter.

    I also use this setup for Farming Simulator and ETS 2.

    The T150 is a pretty solid wheel for what it is.

    Thrustmaster (see signature). Bought my wheel in March 2014, updated pedals and wheel later. So my wheel base is already 5 years old and still working perfect.

    T300RS with T3PA pedals. Once I take care of some more pressing financial concerns, I'm going to get the TH8A shifter.

    I'm using my Fanatec CSP wheelbase 2 now since it was released with Porsche 918 and Formula Carbon rims. Feels good enough for my demands and hope it's gonna last for a while.
    Feeding my piggybank with 50 ct for every hour on track for further upgrades, investments or replacements.
    Lol, looking at it this way , I earn money as a racedriver.:cool:

    As suspected, close battle between Thrustmaster and Fanatec.

    Im using a Nintendo Gamecube controller :p

    In the market for a new wheel right now but really cant decide.between used g27's, a new g29/920, t150/tmx or used t300's.
    I'd love to see someone mod a Nintendo Switch to mount on a wheel base and convert the lcd screen into a hud. <3

    I would go with Thrustmaster if I was you but not sure about the used one?

    @MattYKee
    As someone who has used both a G27 for years and a T300 for the last two, I would say go for the T300. The G-series are good wheels but the T300 is a definite upgrade. So much smother and quieter, a much nicer driving experience.

    Perhaps save for a new one though. Used wheels may be cheap, but you never know how much abuse they've taken.

    This is very important .... What are you trying to achieve? Nicer driving experience or to be competitive? I know lots of people who are better with their controllers than a guy in 30k sim racing rig. I was always aiming for the best driving experience.
