Summary: Short version: This wheel is a cheap plastic imitation of its higher quality forbears. It works, but it doesn't give anywhere near the realistic driving experience the previous models gave. Long version: My friend bought the original, red Logitech Wingman Formula Force (...) a couple years back. I borrowed it recently to play with NASCAR Racing 2003 and loved it. The experience was quite realistic. So I thought to get my own.
Summary: I bought the wheel back in March of this year and for the first 3 months it had worked perfectly. Then a few weeks ago I started to get that wonderful MOMO pedal bug. The pedals are made where they check the calibration every time you push them down. However if you wiggle the pedal while its down the potentiometer reads it as being pushed down further and sets that new rate as what you have to reach in order to get full percentage use out of the pedal.
Summary: A good starter wheel at a reasonable price, with a plethora of buttons on the wheel to do various stuff such as lights, ignition etc. Unfortunately, the design of the wheel makes it feel "heavy" and "clunky". The optical sensor in the wheel is also prone to getting dirty and misreading the turn of the wheel, which is why the newer wheels from Logitech use gear-driven systems.
Pros: Not gonna break the bank, has force feedback
