Nope, but I got an iPod and a kitten, so thats cool. I fixed my old wheel with some heavy duty screws and steel plates. So I should be back on the track soon.

Lil'Bro got me an Escort Redline, and a good friend got me a print of the 1930 Monaco GP. How cool is that!

Merry Christmas everyone!

TJ...I have an old (red) Momo you can have.  It's a bit used, but works fine I'm told (a buddy has it at the moment).

Errm...and / or Luiz...I have a Thrustmaster 360 Modena wheel someone can have too.  I think one of the clamps is broken...not sure, I never used it.  Just picked it up for a spare.

Gee...Thanks Santa Mike! In fact I was so tired of this cheap chinese things that I commited a financial suicide... :cc_hang:
and decided, just a few hours ago, to buy me a brand new...
..Thrustmaster F430 Racing Wheel...for the sum of...US$ 420.00 (10 payments with my VISA!)
G25 is around US$ 650 and G27 is US$ 800 here in Brazil, so this is all I can afford for now...
Ill get it by wednesday...meanwhile Ill take a sight seeing flight over Chicago in my Cesna at the Flight Simulator 2004 - A Century of Flight!
Just dont know where the hell is runaway 26 at that big Ohare airport...
:plane:

BTW, I discovered that the Thrustmaster is also Made in China...
:cc_chinese:  

HAPPY 2010 EVERYONE!

WOW! Wouldnt it of been cheaper to buy it over here for $250 (US) and have it shipped? Even if it costs $50-100 to have it shipped it would of been alot cheaper.

Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good night!

Almost...We have many products that are restricted to get by mail here, specially Computer stuff (softwares and hardwares...) and golf clubs (!!!)...
And the customs taxes are based on the price wed pay on a regular computer store here, so it would be the same...
Meanwhile...does anyone have a setup for a Cesna?!? What flap do I use to take-off and landing, 10 or 20 ???
:P

Would that apply on something that's like 8 years old already?  

Even if all you used was the pedals.  Say I value it at $20.00 US...whats the tax on that?  No idea what shipping Canada to Brazil would be either.  Anyway, it might tide you over, then tuck a little cash away and go for the G25 :)
