Recommended wheel for under £200?

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Richard Roberts, Mar 11, 2016.

  1. I was thinking of buying a wheel for max £200. I have a g25 that I haven't used for 3 yrs after I smelled burning and thought it was better to leave off using it.

    I have heard things of thrustmaster t300 and I may be able to use my pedals and shifter from g25 with that. I would be happy to repair g25 but can't see where to get parts.

    what would you suggest?
  2. Burning smell is probably dust heating up, because it has sit in a corner for 3 years.

    T300 is a high step upwards next to the g25 !
  3. you could probably sell your g25 for 150 and get a t300rs new for 300. that way youre only spending 150 :D

    T300 with the t3pa pedals is a excellent wheel.

    I went from a g27 to a Tx Base and the difference in FFB was huge. Definitely worth the jump.

    Like Greg said, I would sell the g25. However I would put that money on top of the 200 pounds and buy some of the thrustmaster stuff. I've heard the waiting list to get g25/g27 pedals to thrustmaster adapters is quite long and also expensive. expensive.

    Can you run g25 pedals and shifter with a t300 wheel on the computer easily enough?
  6. im not 100% sure about the shifter but i know theres an adapter for the pedals

    I use a T300 Ferrari Integral kit and I still have my G27 hooked up without the power source for the shifter, and used it for a while with the pedals as well. You just have to make sure that the new wheel is the first on the game controllers list after a reboot. If it's not, just jump into device manager, remove the Logitech wheel and scan for hardware changes, it will put it down the list. ;)

    BTW, can't wait for my SHH shifter to arrive. :)

  8. I might sell the g25. I'd have to say that it smells of burning though. would it be worth opening and cleaning first. I'd repair it and use it if I knew where to buy the parts. I think I'd like to get t300
  9. if its the same as the g27 the g25 should be pretty easy to disassemble. I would open it and clean it out with a compressed air can, inspect it and plug it up. Use it for a bit to see if the smell goes away. Like Cloudini5 said it could just be the dust burning from sitting for a while..
