This Game Pad is Programmable and works very well. Logitech Gamepad F310

Amazon.com sells it for around $25.00 dollars In USA.

thanks, i've read that many players use Logitech rumblepad 2. Can you compare rp2 and f310? is there some difference?

There really aren't differents between gamepads in general. I recommend to get either Dual Shock or Rumblepad 2 as they are probably the most used in TM and are both designed well imo. Just get to the shop and grab one that suits into your hand the best :p

I suggest you the Logitech Rumblepad 2, it's actually really ergonomic to keep on hands, it has a good handling.
Also, i love the analog pad, because it's smooth and it let you turn gradually and smooth (and for canyon that's pretty good).

Can only say that bel1be is right on this one. Using the same joystick and it works really great.
About the gamepads. Used before the dual shock and the rumblepad2 and i was able to break about 5-10 dual shocks, while only 2-3 rumblepad2. So i advise you to take at least the rumblepad2. About the cordless version, a friend of mine used it and his energy ran low during the match -_- But it's a matter of taste which version you prefer.
I know also a lot of players which are using the xbox360 pad and are quite happy with it.

I use Xbox360 controller. And i also tryed to play with the logitech rumble or duelshock.
I like the xbox one better because the analog is placed natually for your thump, just feels a lot better for me at least :pil
