steering wheel for computer racing games

My son wants a wheel for his race game and naturally I inquired as to the cost (Gasp!!) ; he then told me that it was way to tech for a person to build on their own. Is he right?

. The one's I've seen are just potentiometers. . IIRC, the Apple //'s used 150K linears - I'd _assume_ most games use something close to that. See if you can borrow a working wheel from someone and measure the resistance.

The last four secondhand/thrift stores I've been to had wheels for five buck, on average. However, the connectors fit obsolete gaming systems. That seems like it would be a good place to start.
