    I really want to hook somthing like this to mine too. I was thinking of a usb wired one. Just run the wire down the steering shaft and behind the dash to a usb hub. Would be good if you can custom place each button too.
    Continued Worklog... Upgrades in progress:
    *15.4" WXGA LED backlight touchscreen upgrade
    *Custom fiberglass dash bezel

    why not just get a cheap wireless game pad - strip it down and make your own controller???? You might even be able to resuse some of the buttons.

    EDIT: and then use girder
