Default Re: Steering Wheel for gaming

I am using Logitech Driving Force GT for my PS3. Its a very good wheel for the price. I think it is compatible with PC also but might need to confirm that. MRP is 9500 but I got it for 5500 from Nehru Place Delhi at wholesale price from a wholesaler.

I've been using a logitech MOMO force feedback wheel with my PC for the last year or so. Got it for <5k. Has paddle shifters and a sequential shifter. The force feedback feels really great! The only downside compared to some other wheels is the limited rotation (270 deg vs 900 on some wheels), but those wheels are much more expensive.

BTW if you want the best, Logitech G25/G27 are one of the best wheels out there, complete with an H pattern shifter!

Driving Force GT is far better than momo. The steering feels better to hold and has 900 degree rotation like a real car unlike momo which is a lame 180. The innards are metal unlike plastic in the momo. Its 2k extra well spent.

Hi all,

I've been thinking about getting myself a racing wheel for PC. So far, I've found the Thrustmaster Ferrari F430 (~7.5k) with force feedback, and the Logitech Driving Force GT (~10k) to be my options. I know the Logitech G27 is the best one out there, but its way out of budget.

Suggestions and additions are most welcome. Also, does anybody know about where I can get these wheels at a good price in Chennai?

Only one strong suggestion:

Go for GT, look nowhere else.

I recently bought GT for Rs7900 at amazon.in Was getting the other one at around 8k from snapdeal. I'll share few links for your reference once I get on PC. Only thing better in F430 is that it has got much better pedals. Rest everything, feedback, customization, ergonomics etc are better in Logitech GT.

Regarding pedals in GT, I didn't find any problems as such. Only 2 things which might put you off, but again these does not actually matter when I play game.

1. Plastic - looks cheap but it IS solid. Who looks at pedal while playing anyway.

2. No feedback - Zero feedback. There is a simple DIY in which simply adding soft sponge can provide gradually increasing resistance, but I haven't tried this.

I don't remember if F430 provide resistance in pedals but it's pedal quality does seems to be better in pics and videos.

There was another reference to the noise made. If you have ever used a racing wheel with feedback, you would know they are loud because of gears used. I don't remember exactly but I think I found in one review that F430 are silent. Though noise is NO issue practically.

Just for info, I have not used F430 at all. Or rather any wheel except GT. I play Crew a lot using GT, and only recently found proper setting in which the drive is a LOT easier and fun. Though it will take me time to switch keyboard with wheel.
