    Trying to find out the most common steering wheels amongst gamers as I would like to manufacture a seat with mountings for wheel & pedals. The idea is a one-piece vacuum moulded construction with optional add-on monocoque cover.
    1. Please state make & model
    2. Also state PC/PS3/XBOX
    3. Please rate your wheel from 1 to 10 (10 being excellent)
    4. If you have had problems please state.
    5. Interested if valued under ?

    Many thanks

    1. Logitech Driving Force GT
    2. PC
    3. Just got the wheel one week ago, so no long-time experience. Wheel: 8/10. Pedals: 3/10
    4. I couldn't reach the shifter buttons without pain, so I bought the shifter paddles from grantourgismo -> Problem solved :). The brake pedal is really as bad as everyone says, but the price was the main argument for the wheel. If I have some spare money a pedal upgrade will be made.
    5. Not yet, just need to see how much I race and if the fun stays. If I am still playing as much in ~1 year or so, interested if max ~200€

    1) Official 360 wireless wheel
    2) Xbox(!) and PC (w/o FFB)
    3) 8/10
    4) Had to take the bottom off to refasten a plastic cog that had stopped the FFB working. It was bought second-hand (wheel is discontinued), so could be due to age of wheel more than anything else. Build quality is brilliant overall.
    5) £150.
