I'm huge racing fan, but I've been holding purchasing a PS2. What's the reason, its the controller! I've become really accustomed to the DC controllers with the dual triggers. With the current racing games available how do they handle throttle control and braking? I would hate to think with the buttons my choice is either wide-open or off with no in between.

Well, the Dual Shock 2 has analog buttons, so these offer you some throttle control. I noticed this especially in GTA3.
However, I highly recommend the Logitech steering wheel with the gas and brake pedals if you're serious about racing. It works great for GT3.

I heard that the Logitech wheel is harder to use than the controller and you were better off without it.

In addition, severl games (GT3 most especially) allow you to use the right analog stick to control gas and braking. The level of control is impressive, and I don't think I could go back, even to analog buttons.

Has anyone tried tht controller that looks like a wheel but there is no base? I'm intrigued, but not enough to blindly spend $20 :)

I tried that in GT1 and didn't really like it much. I need accel and brake to be seperate to get the control. The triggers on the DC were great once you got used to not holding them down all the way all the time.
