    Hi guys,

    For my school project I am going to try to make a formula racing wheel from scratch.

    I would like to have some feedback from the simracing community what the most important aspects of a formula sim racing wheel are.

    What are the most important aspects to you? Things like:
    • Looks
    • Accessibility
    • Display (yes/no)
    • Shift LEDs (yes/no)
    • Size
    • Comfort
    • Functions (buttons, rotaries, magnetic shifters, etc.)
    • Connectivity
    • Weight
    • Other
    Please leave your feedback in the comments below. When I am finished with my project, I will be happy post the result here.:)

    Thanks,

    S4nder

    Looks are always a good thing because I want my whole rig to look nice when I am not racing. But comfort and functions come first, I do not care for LEDS anymore as I race in VR.

    Which type of rim are you making i.e. based on what real life counterpart? :)

    I am currently designing my own Corvette GTE rim but the cool thing about designing your own rim is that you can always put a twist on it. I am going to make mine mixture of these two rims:

    As its my first attempt I will not use high quality materials just mediocre ones.
