    I have tried the Logitech wheels but I prefer the Fanatec wheels more especially with those awesome clubsport pedals.

    Used to be a G25 for many years, but moved to a G27 due to the noisy clunky gear change of the G25 which was gradually getting worse and worse. Finding the G27 a better refinement on many levels and also enjoy the rev display led's utilised in Simbin stuff.

    Play all the Simbin stuff and Richard Burns Rally primarily. Whilst graphically they might be showing their age, the handling and physics runs rings around the likes of the codies games - appalling DiRT 3 for example with its car gymnastics ;) . For me the core driving gameplay is more important and the ff feel of the simbin stuff is A1.

    I'm all for arcade racers btw, just not a fan of those that try to be both.

    I thought i'd mention netKar-Pro here for the wheel guys. Nobody has talked about it so far. New version just released. It's a great sim and very very cheap.

    My old MS FFB wheel has some of the buttons playing up, have had it apart a few times and came to the conclusion it’s wiring, but it has a bit of “play” now where it didn’t before, so i need to invest in a new FFB wheel and I like the look of the Fanatec ones.

    I've been using a Logitech g25 for a few years now, pedals require a bit o' TLC and a few DIY mods on the brakes but well worth the money.

    -edited to add I'm an iracing junkie, this wheel probably gets about 20-30hrs / week and has never failed me yet.

    For the pedals, I meant I bought the tuning kit, and added the nicer bushings, springs, foam inserts etc etc to the pedals. A small(and cheap, only $50) upgrade, but a nice compliment to such a wonderful set of pedals.


    And yeah, the two wheels are near identical. I just wanted to have a second wheel in case something happened to one of them , Id have a spare.

    my g25 broke this afternoon :cry: , i was driving in GTL while downloading the netkar 1.3 demo to chek it out since i read its improved alot and has the best FF feeling and aparently phisics aswell. well when i finished with GTL the wheel felt like it had bit of resistance on desktop, i unpluged the usb and still it had that weird resistance. in the end after taking it apart i found the right motor to be bad, turning both motors by hand the right one has some resistance to turning. im not sure what the right motor is incharge of doing. the left one is the one with the sensor so im thinking of putting it back together without the right motor altho i think the motor still works its making the wheel very slow when calibrating.
    this is so unexpected and came right when i was gonna jump back in into simracing argggghhh,:biggun:

    sold my G25 few years ago
    raced LFS, iRacing and with some rfactor engine
    too much work with wheel really, loses the feel of "gaming"
