Microsoft sidewinder steering wheel and pedals now available!

Recently refurbished by Jabo this wheel has been great for me playing Assetto Corsa (it will be for you too, go on you know you want to, this is the only approved "other game" by the Priory other than IL2/Clod of course)

Get Assetto Corsa and you too can be thrashing round famous racing circuits in no time just for the cost of the postage

And incase you are wondering why I am passing it on, I am not giving up on the game, the green eyed monster came to visit and I wanted what the other boys had so I have upgraded to fit the category of "all the gear and no idea"

Tempted to have it back Col, but have nowhere to store it so I'll pass. Glad it's worked for you.

@arthur - Yes

 

I have had it working on Windows 7 64 bit with no problem

What Friar said. It's also worth bearing in mind that like the Sidewinder, the software bundle doesn't work on win 7 but the native drivers work fine for the ffb and you can assign the buttons in-game

You all have probably noticed how "very active"  i am lately in flight sims and it is a great shame for my Warthog HOTAS and my Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals to collect dust. At the end, i could use some money to. So, with a sad heart, i decided to sell them.

 

I'll buy myself a simpler cheaper one ( maybe MSSWFF or Thrustmaster T.16000M USB ) so i can join from time to time.

 

Warthog is like new. Used it just a couple times. Pedals are older but in a good shape.

 

Anyways, i'll sell Warthog for $300, and pedals $75. 

 

I also think that i have a way to send them anywhere with no transport fee. ( i must double check that )

 

Cheers

Definitely interested in the pedals!

 

Twisty joystick does not cut it :)

 

Nick got first call though.

 

Warthog is sooo tempting too.

I'm out Rog. I believe Gec already has a buyer for the HOTAS lined up but I don't know about the pedals

Sry Goth. Jabo is right. Warthog is sold to VARP Thor, who also showed the interest yesterday, and was running with the money for me this morning in 6:50  :startle:

 

So i had to wake up Jabo for his decision :)

 

Anyways. The pedals are still on the market for you Rog if still interested.

A good joystick does not a whizzy sim-pilot make...Although what it will do for someone who's already good...

I have a spare (working) SATA DVD-RW drive going begging. Yours for the cost of the postage. Anyone interested.

 

Incidentally it has a black bezel for anyone worried about the colour.

As a few of you know, I have recently upgraded my mobo, ram, cpu and heatsink.  I have used these parts for about 6 years, auto overclocked at 4ghs most of the time.  I added 6 gigs of G Skill ram a year ago because I couldn't find any matching Corsair Dominitor.  (but now I see some for sale for $50!)  So, after letting my old stuff gather some dust in the corner, it is time for it to go..  

 

Here is a list of what I have to sell.  I am really interested in selling it all at once so to save on shipping and packaging and will work a better deal!  But will break it up.

I put some links in there just for reference, so you can see pictures and descriptions.

 

Asus Rampage II Extreme: $180
 
Intel i7 965 Extreme LGA1366 BX80601965 3.2GHZ QPI 6.40: $80
 
Noctua NH-U12P CPU Heat Sink (without fans) $20
Includes fan clips for both sides.  I had 2 fans strapped to this.  It is very tall.  I could not close my case with this on.
 
Corsair Dominator 1866 DDR3 Triple Channel memory: $45
Corsair 3 x2gb 1866 DDR3 DIMMs TR3X6G1866C9DF
 
6gb G SKILL Triple Channel memory: FREE (for a total of 12 gigs of ram)
 
 
total: $325usd
 
Everything is plus shipping.
