Wheel advice needed

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by woz9us, Sep 24, 2012.

  1. Hi,

    I have been using a controller since I have been playing racing games, now I want to take it more seriously, and try a few serious sims I am looking to buy my first wheel. My budget is about £200.

    I have done a bit of research and have learned there are so many to chose from. Now my main dilemma is that I play GT5, Forza, and F1 (360 & PC), and from what I can see there aren't too many wheels that go across all 3 platforms. Has anyone got such a wheel?

    I am leaning towards the Logitech G27, my other option is the Logitech Driving Force GT wheel, which is cheaper so would free up funds for a stand as I have no desk to mount it on.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Woz

    this is probably your best option for a wheel to cover all three platforms but a little more money is needed..

    or a g25/27 with a gizmo to use it on the xbox (see this post)

    or look for something like a wheel stand pro, i still have mine
    people are selling g25/27 with a stand on ebay, Gumtree, etc..
    or have a look in this section on RD http://www.racedepartment.com/forum/threads/for-sale-swaps.16693/page-25
     
  3. Thanks for that mate,

    I have gone with the Fanatec, looking at a few reviews it looks like a really good wheel for the money. I will pick up a wheel stand pro too I think.

    Thanks again for the help,

    Woz

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

    Woz I have the Fanatec CSR (value pack so with CSR pedals).
    Very happy.
    I bought a cheap workstation from an office supply shop for £30.00 and the standard fanatec supplied clamp works fine. I drive F1 2011, Raec Pro on Xbox and RFactor on PC. its great
     
  5. I've just gone and bought myself the wheel stand pro too :(, nevermind, I can't wait to get it all set up! Almost feel silly that I was considering the G27, seems you get so much more with the Fanatec, I know I'm missing the shifter but I will be playing f1 2012 mostly.
