Well now that I'm taking a look at things, and actually have been getting more money than I thought in the past two months of saving, I may go for the CSW. I sold my old bike yesterday, which brings my tally up to $375 saved, getting another $100 possibly today selling a guitar, and another $50 tomorrow from my dad. That'll bring me to about $525, and my mom may help chip in with the last $200, which would get me the CSW with both rims (I'd get both rims because I'm in a NASCAR league in iRacing, and it would be too weird doing a NASCAR race with the Formula Rim). I'm also factoring in that I'm using my cockpit as an all-purpose station. So that means when I'm not racing, I'm sitting in my cockpit doing whatever on my computer, so the T500's large base may be offputting for that. However, I could just pull off the CSW rim, and have a relatively unobstructed view of my monitor at least I'm definitely excited to see what happens in the next two weeks though. And my thoughts about the reliability at times is that everything has a legitimate chance of failure. Look on ISR forums, G25/27s, even ECCI and FREX fail. I've had issues with my Clubsport Pedals, but the majority are problems I may have to factor in my own stupidity in the matter. Fanatec was 2/3 times very prompt and quick to help me because I knew they would ask for photo/video of the problem, and I had the replacement parts within 3 days (except the third time, when it took a week and a half to respond, but they did apologize for the wait [at least my thing wasn't a fully broken set at the time or I would have been put off xD]). I guess I'm fortunate to live relatively close to the distribution center though Something I should also mention is that this is my cockpit: View attachment 10814 sorry for it being dark. It's a wood DIY rig, but it works well and is pretty sturdy. I may put a couple more uprights on it though to reinforce it a little further. One more question, about what percent stronger is the CSW FFB opposed to the G25?
