Racing wheel

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by Richie Hill, Sep 28, 2011.

  1. Hello everyone,

    I will be soon making the leap to the PC version and need a wheel.

    I have a budget of £80, any suggestions? Of course I will need enough buttons etc for all the DRS KERS etc

  2. Logitech DFGT

    /end thread
  3. Logitech Driving Force GT, works or both PS3 (Although PS3 drivers are having some set-up issues with F1 2011 ATM) and PC. I and a few of the guys I race with use them with our PC's and think its about the best wheel that you don't have to sell your grandmother to pay for?

    Currently £89 @ Argos, although you may have to hunt around to get it at that price as they tend to go as soon as they are in stock.

    My advice would be to check local stores online and reserve it as soon as it comes in.

    An alternative may be the "Thrustmaster Ferrari F430 Force Feedback Racing Wheel" (£89.99 from Amazon). I've never used it myself, but some of my friends have it and they say it really good too. It has better gear change paddles than the DFGT but I have read reports on Amazon of it being a little delicate so bear that in mind when your thashing it around the track. That's why I ended up buying the DFGT, although I'm sure there will be many on this forums who would be better placed than I to extoll the F430's virtues.
  4. Iam in the same boat as you and have just today purchased the thrustmaster f430, i chose it over the DFGT because of the stiffer peddles along with a better review than the DFGT on simracingtonight on youtube.

    Hope that helps.

    cant tell you how it is yet tho as it hasnt arrived yet :(.
  5. Does the Thrustmaster f430 works on PS3 F1 2011? I google but i cant find an answer!
  6. as far as iam aware its a pc only wheel, but iam only 85% sure about that, iam sure i read somewere it was only for pc.
  7. Is there any wheel that works on PC, 360 and PS3? Would be nice to have all my systems covered with a single wheel purchase..

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Only Fanatec CSR, CSR Elite and GT2.
  9. I'd also suggest the DFGT but be aware that you might not be overly happy with the pedals. They do the job but they certainly aren't the best.
  10. What makes these controllers the best? I have the Official Xbox steering wheel which seems ok. But I haven't used anything else so cannot compare.
  11. Thanks guys! I have settled upon Thrustmaster Ferrari F430 Force Feedback Racing Wheel.

    I wanted to check first tho that this wheel will work fine with windows 7?
