    Emilio is pretty knowledgable about serious simulators. You could PM or email him (I will PM you his email address).

    You can build a useful system at home for under $1K. Sonny, William and a few others here have done it. In fact, I think we need to have a DIY sim thread, so here it is DIY Driving Simulator thread

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    I used the CXC set up and thought it was pretty good. But that being said, I feel like the software they use was almost identical to GT5. The steering and pedal feel were really good (top notch hardware). The actuators made you feel the bumps but don't give the sensation of your cars balance so I found them minimally useful. The best thing about them was they have all the local tracks and US tracks that are not on GT5. I wish there was a way to load other tracks on GT5. A few hundred dollars vs 40k for the CXC is hard to justify.
