Do they have a 6-speed shifter and a clutch pedal?

no, they are to pedal jobbies, but you can (as i have done) make a clutch pedal and a shifter

The G25 is a better wheel though, and more expensive too!

pedals - attached, they cost me £60 used and are GREAT, however just use the "normal" pedals with another crap wheel, but use the other wheels pedals for a clutch.

Shifter? Joystick + FFShifter (although it only works with LFS and a few other games - it maps each "part" of the joysticks range as a keystroke, then make the game think when you press key "x" go to gear x. It looks the same as an Ordinary joystick, although if you don't like the top you can just rip it off (seen it done and then had a gator and knob attached - looked quite good!). If thats too ghetto for you, you can get an ACT Labs (Just like my pedals) GPL shifter, it looks like this:

HOWEVER, unless you get a good (and i mean it!) deal on the ACT Labs kit and a wheel (remember that the G25 is much better than the Momo or DFP), it will easily top the price of a G25

Thats really cool. Is the joystick specially made so that it is a shifter? I don't really understand what you did with it. Is FFShifter just software that lets a joystick act as a shifter?

And btw, the G25 was designed by momo. It is really a beautiful wheel...leather wrapped, and then theres the genuine leather shift boot.Its just that when I think what else I can get for $300, I can't justify its purchase unless I already have a nice PSU, GPU, CPU, sound card, as well as several good racing games. And I also wish that GT4 and the new Grand Turismo will come out for PC.

EDIT: OK, I get it now. The FF stand for force feedback, so the force feedback motors hold the shifter in place in the right gear. Thats a good idea... Thanks for the inspiration.
