I dont know if it was mentioned, but I've got my beady little eye on an original MK1 supercharged, needs alot of work, but that would be nice to get ready for next year!

I have a PS2 slim with two controllers and bunch of games that I will donate to the club. Let me know if I should send it to someone.

Thanks for the offer, Andy. However I've been looking into consoles and games today (not really my thing, most of the time) and I think a pair of XBoxes and Forza 3 is going to be the most suitable starting point. Forza 3 has an MR2, it has separate accelerator and brake on the controller, it has a basic clutch model and you can turn off the HUD. I still can't figure out how to get an analogue signal for the brakes though... that is being problematic.
