Steering wheel upgrade

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Stephen Armstrong, Feb 26, 2016.

  1. I am thinking of upgrading my G27 to a T300 Ferrari wheel Alcantara or a T500RS. The T500 is about £40 (atm ) cheaper which is the better Wheel and why ? Would you recommend something entirely different ? (forget about Fanatec too expensive) thanks in advance, Stepy

    You can find many threads for the same already, but T300 Ferrari Integral all the way. The T500 is a beast, but getting old and outdate. While the T300 does not have the strength, but has more fine details and way lower mechanical damping. The included T3PA pedals with the conical brake mod feels awesome. And that rim... Oh man, that rim! :)

    BTW, I made the same jump and can't even explain how numb and slow the G27 feels after this. ;)

    EDIT: Make sure you buy from a place with good warranty handling, as you might run into a lemon. Mine had issues with a bearing, got replaced without question and all good now with the second unit. ;)

    What he said. I had a T500 for several years and it served me well. That being said, I prefer the T300. The FFB is almost as strong but much smoother.

    In the driver, set everything to 100, with 900 degrees of rotation. Adjust per personal preference in each game.
