Sounds like a plan.

I was all pumped when I got my wireless wheel.... that's just insanity.

I play Forza 4, have yet to get Horizon.

It depends. You could get a setup for a few hundred or you can spend $40k plus on a full on simulator rig. I'm somewhere between there You could of course go cheaper or way more. I'm somewhere over $1k for it all. For the price it cost to the amount of hours I will put into it is totally worth it and really very cheap overall. I can sit in it for hours and play many different racing games and also use the seat/buttkicker/headphones for everything else I play as well. I'm a big gamer so it's worth it to me.

Since i'm not affording getting an actual car and racing it this is quite a bit cheaper than that.

My buddy came over last night to check it out and had a blast. So much fun, but definitely takes some getting used to.

Nice setup. Id love to try the Fanatac wheels at some point. They seem pretty good and my G27 is losing steam.

I have this setup with a single screen currently (triple screen after the new year):



Logitech G27 Wheel is a custom Formula Rim:



And Todd Cannon GT3B Pedals:

Here's my setup. It happens to be a hobby and also work-related, since I build custom PCs for this type of stuff. The software is iRacing.

Specs:
Obutto + 3 x Dell U2412M
CST-3B GT load cell pedals with stiff brake + high pressure upgrades. They feel very similar to the ones you would find in a race car. Brake is HARD, the way it should be.
TSW sequential and gated shifters, both pretty much indestructible.
Momo Mod.26 custom mounted on a T500RS base
Cube Controls SLI-Pro display - shows the gear you're in, as well as when to shift. The shift points are configurable for every car depending on car setup, track and personal preference.
Bass transducer under the seat. It will cause the seat to vibrate when you drive over a curb, go off-road, or crash into a wall. These days you can configure the vibration based on telemetry data from the game, so it's not just "rumble rumble", it provides useful feedback.
PC is i7-2700K @ 4.5GHz and a Radeon HD 7970 3GB
Logitech Z906 speakers









I haven't taken any videos yet, so here are some by other people who have similar setups:

Online race, Daytona Prototype at Watkins Glen:

CST pedals in action, including some heel-toe work:

I've only done official races in the MX5. Work has been taking most of my time, so apart from the occasional practice session here and there, I haven't been actively racing.

Favorite car and track combo: Lotus 79 at Watkins Glen Cup.
