    More information

    • Replica of the wheel on the Ferrari 458 Italia, star vehicle of Forza Motorsport 4! 11" XXL size (7/10ths of the original) with rubber texture cladding for optimal handling on Xbox 360.
    • Wheel-mounted sequential gearbox: 2 Ferrari GT-style metal paddle shifters.
    • Genuine "Manettino" dial: 2-position switch lets users directly change game settings while they race. Automatically returns to neutral position.
    • 8 easy-access action buttons + one 8-direction D-pad in the form of an "Engine Start" button.
    • Xbox Guide button with illuminated ring indicating the player number.

    No FFB and "Bungie Cord" wheel centering technology. Pfffttt! I can't believe that Thrustmaster has the galls to state that!. A shame really, such a nice looking wheel.

  2. It look great but meh its only for console. Just get a proper wheel, that actually it built with FFB.

    Oh no i'll never buy it! I own a G25 and a Fanatec CSR Forza is going to be added to my collection. I just put this up because i saw it.
  4. If that price is in $-s, then it can be the best budget wheel for the Xbox I guess.

    You are right though Peter, It is the best wheel for the Xbox for people with budget in mind. Or i guess one can go for this. This comes with the game.

    And it's only a 90 day warranty? Shows how confident they are in it.

    How are you supposed to use the silly thing anyways? Is there a suction cup on the back of the middle piece to stick on your buddy's forehead and use him or her as a base.:D

    I'm just kidding around, thought i'd throw that in for it is such a silly thing Mircosoft put out.:wink:
  12. People say it "surprisingly" works, the only - I've read is that it doesn't have the bumper buttons from the controller. (though the triggers have a longer route meaning your throttle and brake will be more precise)

    And it's very cheap, basically the same price as the cheapest wheels for the PC.
  13. Guys, don't laugh at that Speed Wheel. I got one purely as an experiment for driving games when I'm on the road (was that a pun?), and it works *incredibly* well. Yes, my lap times are better with my G25 (GTR2 Power and Glory 2.0, rFactor), but it's far from night and day.

    They must have made some sort of breakthrough in precision on these motion controllers, because I found it to be very smooth and accurate. I was able to drift through corners in a 911 3.0 RSR - and that's my highest compliment (car is twitchy as Hell).
