Anyone seen the relatively cheap new F1 wheel?

    The problem being, from what I understand, no LED read outs on the wheel itself.

    So when you say "relatively cheap", you mean "very expensive"?

    I saw a video review of that...it seems okay, but none of the dials on the front work.

    over all it just looks cheap...There's cool features to it, but it doesn't go quite far enough for me to justify spending that money.

    The dials work for PC. Not for consoles though.

    Rev, Bost, Tyre, Grip and the large dial in the centre are all Dummies Fake, and do not work
    Here is a post from facebook, I was asking The questions
    As with the no led, he wouldnt awnser why it wasnt included, but you can clearly see 2 screws, so im hoping some of the mod guys will be able to include one at a later date

    Thrustmaster T500 RS ‎@Joshua: thanks to the different buttons available on the wheel we already have a 17 programmable functions in "Normal mode" (PC and PS3) and 29 programmable functions in "Advanced mode" (PC).

    Its not so much the dummie buttons that i have an issue with, its the no led rev display that you hav not included at the top of the wheel, Dont get me wrong i love thrustmaster products ive got the Hotas Warthog sitting on my desk, and it just shout quality at you, But to leave out an inportant feature as the led lights, no sorry thats not right..... I will now be going for the fanatec f1 wheel, when its released, its has led lights :)

    Well i will hold back and see if mayby the moders can add the led rev display, because i have noticed you have the 2 screws on the panel on the top of the wheel, so maby they can come up with somthing, Can i ask why the led was left out?October 19 at 4:22pm ·

    Not at all. You try and find another F1 style wheel you'd be able to buy for anywhere near that and I'll eat my hat. You'd be lucky if you found one for under £900/1,000. So, in terms of F1 wheels available on the market, it does make it relatively cheap.
