Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel
30 October 2007
Excerpt: A joint effort of Logitech and MOMO, a prestigious Italian racing-component manufacturer, this wheel has six buttons, two pedals, knob and two-paddle shifters, profiling software that lets you save configurations for different games, and a comfortable, solid-feeling 10-inch wheel. Its limited force-feedback implementation affects only steering stiffness, but this didn't stop our test unit from performing superbly with both arcade games and high-end sims.
Excerpt: Logitech's newest racing-enthusiast steering wheel is based on last year's Logitech MOMO Force, which was very pretty, was made mostly of metal, and cost a hefty $200. With this year's model, the body, shift paddles, and pedals are now plastic instead of steel and aluminum, and the wheel wrapping is rubber instead of leather. On the plus side, the new wheel is half the price and has a sequential-style shift lever, which is adaptable to the left or right hand.
Excerpt: Logitech's MOMO Racing is the most desirable wheel on test. Design and construction are top notch and it looks fantastic. It's also the only one with a dedicated gear stick as well as up/down paddles. However, it's complicated to set up and the instructions could be better. It's not particularly clear, for example, that you lift the top plastic cover off to access two hidden clamp shafts, adding to the more obvious third clamp underneath.
Conclusion: F1 Challenge This wheel is frankly superb for this game. The steering is very precise and accurate, and gives the user good control of the car. The steering is slightly heavier than the other wheels I tried (i.e. more like a real car), which suits this game down to the ground. This is because it makes it a lot easier to steer with fluid motions, which is ideal for a track based driving game, where smoothness is the key.
