Steering wheel


I need a steering wheel for PC within a budget of 7k.

I am confused between two wheels at the moment.

Xbox.com | Accessories - Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/ga...s/320&cl=US,EN

I read in reviews that the X360 wheel has got very good feedback and nice build quality but i came across one thread on some forum where members were complaining that it isnt good for use on PC as they were not getting force feedback on PC. And for Logitech Momo I am not happy with the amount of buttons present on the wheel and also the X360 wheel seems to have a better build quality.

So Please suggest which one should I buy.

PS-I already own the XBOX 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver which would be required to connect the X360 steering wheel.

Re: Steering wheel

All X360 wheels made my MS are ****, stay away from them.

If you can spend a bit more, I strongly recommend getting the Logitech Driving Force GT. It's a PS3 wheel but works perfectly with PC's once you install the Logitech Wingman software.
It has full 900 rotation so in essense you are getting a wheel with the specifications of a G25 for 1/3rd the price.

Infact the DF GT's predecessor, the DF Pro, was considered the best racing wheel for PC by simracers before the G25 came along even though it was a PS2 wheel .

Extra buttons are silly. You also have to think about what they'd be mapped to in-game.
I'd recommend the Logitech.

Re: Steering wheel

^ Extra buttons are anything but silly. G25 owners are ruing over that fact there's nothing to bind their pitspeed limiter, pit radio and Motec output displays to .

Re: Steering wheel

Jeez-US. For me, that's be sheer overkill. I can't recall ever using more than 2 buttons. But then, I'm not a racer

Well, you're here - suggest something to the poor man

Re: Steering wheel

Actually, I am planning to sell my 5 month old Momo and go in for a DF GT myself. Interested in buying it ?

Re: Steering wheel

What about them :S? By my standards, none of the wheels except the G25 have really good pedals. They work alright but they are all so flimsy.

The DF GT does come with pedals in case you're thinking otherwise. They are just not shown on that webpage.

Re: Steering wheel

@Arogorn - I really love G25. But I cant buy it. It is out of my Budget.

@saumilsingh - Thanks for the suggestion. Now the confusion is between DF GT and Momo. What is the cost of both the models?

Re: Steering wheel

Drift its simple.
You wanna get the feel of a steering wheel, Get the G25
Else Theres absolutly no point in buying anyother.
They just donot make sense
