Nice arrangement you have there. Hopefully Logitech releases a working model of the G27 for the PS4 so I can get one as well.

We come here looking for deals. We use the savings on the things we buy to justify buying more things, thus filling our homes with tons of unnecessary consumer products. Such is the key to happiness.

yes it's sturdy. if you drive a real life stick shift, you shouldn't use your left foot for the brakes.

Ya but for F1 and other paddle shift vehicles I'll left foot brake. I'm not sure how common it is but I know people do this

I see what you mean.
I suppose you can just slide the pedals over to the left a bit so you straddle the center posts and use them as you do.

I have the staple one but I bought it from memoryexpress. It is very sturdy, probably more so than the Wheel Stand Pro.

Left foot braking is used in racing even with 3 pedals. It's used to control over and understeer.

thanks i was able to track down more review at ME
bummer that it's not spring-loaded for quick stowaway...the shifter platform isn't adjustable?
Weaknesses:
It would be nice if the VR02 had spring-loaded 'bolts' to allow for quick-folding/unfolding (rather than having to unscrew the two bolts completely). This is definitely not a deal-breaker, as the process only takes a minute, vs 5 seconds if the 'bolts' were spring-loaded. Similarly, it would be nice if the wheel shelf and shifter shelf were easily adjustable (or adjustable at all, in the case of the shifter support).

The version I got from ME (a few years back) doesn't have the shifter platform, so I don't know. However, google GT Omega, it seems like they have the same wheel stand.

I drive a real stick shift and I'm accustomed to pressing the clutch down with the left foot first and then the brake with the right foot.
