annnd we have another Rhino user
I haven't really used mine for racing yet (so still find it easier with the gamepad) but whilst it was decent enough for starters and did it's job, I certainly wouldn't go back to using the latter. Really happy with my X55 purchase (CH pedals too).
Now bring on the consumer model Rift.
"My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
