No worries Dazza,

I've had a bit of a browse as well, couldn't find anything.

It'll only matter if its and ongoing problem and I'll hand it to Hess at Pagnian if that happens.

I have found problems reported with the PS3 USB dongle and connections dropping... That must have been what I saw, but who cares about PS3 anyway.

i cant figure out how to use the dongle on PS3, just wired lol, stupid dongle thing

Funny thing happened to me this morning, and I decided it should be posted here as I am sure it is related to the GT2 wheel and more importantly the CSP.

We own a 2010 RAV4 4cyl Auto, not a power house but it is cheap to run. I also have a 2010 X-Trail Turbo Desiel Auto, also not a real quick ride, but it is supplied to me from work.

Anyway, this morning I was reversing out the garage in the RAV to drop my daughter off at school, I noticed the paper was lying in the middle of the driveway so as I got close, I jumped out grabbed the paper, then jumped back in. spend a few embarising moments stabbing my left foot at the floor trying to engage the clutch before putting the car back in to reverse to proceed on my way. Embarassed

My daughter said, "what where you doing dad" oh nothing much just thought I had a manual car for a moment Smile

Good one Dazza,

maybe you could drop the CSPs in the car before you go out, then at least you'll be able to find the clutch. But don't forget to wire the car for the PS2 connector first. Wink

hahaha and I only have to wait for a week!!!

AS OPPOSED TO 3 DAMN MONTHS FOR THE TURBO-S!!!! God that was a looooong wait!!

But yeah I talked to Hess a few night back, he mentioned that at the current sale-rate he would run out of wheels and pedals in less than a fortnight. So unsure of how long my group certificates were gonna take, I decided to buy now, otherwise it would have been late august by the time Hess got stock again.

Having owned the Turbo S before (now owned by Don), would make for a interesting comparision too, 'cos apparently the GT2 has a few minor updates over the Turbo-S. LOL but dont tell Don cos he would prob feel ripped off if there was a difference lol!!!! Nah Id still be happy with the Turbo....i doubt that there is a $150 hardware/software improvement between the two.

Turbo S is still a damn good wheel. You didn't rip Don Off.
We had to wait 4 months for our wheels (ordered just before christmas and received April) So one week is good. You made the right choice buying now and not waiting.
Hess is the best at after sales service.
Sometimes the wheel plays up with forza three though. I hope they get this sorted in time for forza 4.
Once I was racing around and then bam lost steering, feedback, throttle, brake and clutch. The car just rolled to a stop. I had to turn the wheel off and on to reset it. Sort of realistic. It simulates real life in that sometimes racers have car failure lol At least that's what I'm telling myself.

hahaha yeah its a bloody good unit...looking forward to the alacantra trim lol!!

Ahh yeah i remember you mentioning that before i went offline there.....its a hard wait lol!!!

Yeah his communication through-out my wait was excellent!

Umm i cant say I had a trouble with my old Turbo-S. Do you have a new slimline xbox or the ye olde white one? Ive got the slimline, and cant recall any trouble with it.

Don have you had any glitches like Crimson, and if so what xbox do u use?

hahahaha thats a good mindset thou crimson lol!!!!

I'm thinking (hoping) that FM4 will have greater fanatic wheel support, considering they are releasing a "fanatic FM4" wheel.

I'm using on old xbox and I havnt had any disconnection or communication problems.

And Mitch, your luv the trim, I carnt stop sniffing the thing either, the little woman things I'm weird Shocked

Crimson you're selling us short mate.

We ordered mid December and got the goods end of May.
That 5+ months, talk about delayed gratification.
Don't think anyone enjoyed the wait, but its great gear.

RU stop sniffing the trim, or you'll go blind.

Yeah yeah, it's this bloody apple iPad, it changes things on the fly, it offers a word change to what it thinks and if you don't deselect it nag (see, it just done it again) and just space bar on, it changes it.

That's my excuse!

LOL I had a bad thing happen with autochange words. My wife's name is Stephanie. I call her steph. But the computer autofilled it to Stephen.
So the rather naughty texts read a little strange.
