    Yea, but over time you will want to get a wheel just so you can go faster and get more feeling from it.
     
  3. If gamepads were good for racing, they would fit them in real F1 cars. :D

  4. I think the game was designed for gamepads, seeing that it's a console port. But a steering wheel will always beat a gamepad.

  6. Thanks evreyone for reply
    I have played the 2010 game with tc off and this was not a big problem but now this game i think tc off is realy challenging what do you thing am i wrong?
     
  7. Gamepads are designed for arcade platformers and not for racing.
     
  8. 3 times WC on legend with xbox game controller! ;)
     
  9. I am using a XBox controller and I love it. Have to tweak the settings a bit to get just right but after that, it rocks!
     
  10. If you think a pad rocks, I expect your trousers would explode if you tried a wheel :D

  11. LOL @Paul!
     
  12. I am having the same problem with the Xbox controller. I had all Assist's off in 2010 but i just cant control the car properly with tc completely off in 2011.

    But the Controller is good, I won or was close to winning a lot of my race's on-line but i am getting the Thrustmaster Ferrari F430 racing wheel for crimbo as i do feel limited without it at the minute (i.e: TC on still).
     
  13. Mark do you also shift manualy with gamepad is this handy?
     
  14. no, mostly auto but I would of loved if they added an Semi-Auto option so it would change for me but I could also change gears if I wanted (with the wheel I will be doing manual shifts).

    I find it weird using the game pad +gears with F1, in RACE 07 I am using manual gears all the time.
