    Haven't in a while actually, I still have GTR 2 installed though and will have to get back into it. I keep saying that, but one day it will happen :)

    It works, you just need to get the wireless receiver microsoft makes. Works for the controllers too.

    It's true that G25 is a High End tool, but Momo was never Entry level, not even now. Those cheap wheals from Genius, or other brand that work like they were made on a ship, can be called entry level. Momo has a fair position in the Mainstream class, it used to be High End when first launched.

    Well nothing mentioned in this thread is really high end; this stuff is mainstream at most.

    Wheels like this are considered high end.

    Lol, I was just going to post something like this... People think G25 is bees knees when in fact it's just an updated DFP. Mechanically it's pretty much the same wheel... Has nothing to do with high end wheels. G25 is overpriced mainstream guys, nothing more... It's a good wheel, better than the DFP but nowhere near twice better like the price tag would suggest...

    I used to use the TM Nascar Pro Digital wheel back in the day for my racing sims.

    I still have it sitting in a closet, dunno if it still works though.

    Nice job reading, btw.

    How is the Microsoft wheel supposed to be any better than the Momo?

    I use both DFP and G25 on LFS. Both generally set to 720 in road cars and 540 in race.
    Nice that you can utilise the amount of steering to dial in.

    Price wise, the DFP is unbeatable, up to 900 degrees, fairly solid, maybe a little heavy with the ffb motors and a little noisey. Solid pedels and a PS2 built into the wheel centre for lots of easy buttons.

    Playability wise, the G25 is quite a bit nicer, bigger wheel, better ffb motors, a lot less noise when under hard use. However, the H shifters are very light, its so easy to miss gears. They are noisey in the shift, and unless you mod the shifter somewhat, then I think it is too easy to break.

    Its all down to how much are you willing to spend on a toy?

    The Logitech DFP runs about $100 you say?
