I resisted getting a wheel for the 360 since I already had one for the original xbox and a momo for my pc and didn't think there were any driving games on the 360 worth getting another one. Then a friend told me how much fun Forza 3 is and the fact that MS would be discontinuing their wheel was enough to make me bite the bullet and get another one. It was well worth it
I saw online how people make their own stands so I decided to make one for myself of my own design and I'm very happy as to how it turned out. It's so much more fun than just having the wheel in your lap. I know some can drive really well with a controller but having a race rig is more fun.
While doing my research I found out about the Butt Kicker and ordered one as soon as they became available again. That was like the icing on the cake and my racing seat is now complete. Anyone that's on the fence about buying or building a setup for their wheel should just do it. It's soooo worth it.
For those that don't have Forza 3 yet they have just released it as a platinum hits called the Forza Ultimate Collection for $29.95 and it includes all the DLC and three special cars exclusive to it.. Hard to beat that deal and you will get months and months of play out of it.
With F1 2010 here and NASCAR 2011, TDU 2, DIRT 3 and Forza 4 coming there will plenty of driving to do for a long time.
Here's a few shots of my setup.
