OK FFB racing wheel

Summary: I got this driving wheel to enjoy the GT Legends game for Windows PC. After having had it for some months, I'd say that I was disappointed with the way the motors interpret the forces, which is (in my opinion) unrealistic. The self- centering point actually seems to work against you as you are speeding down the straightaway, causing one to have to rock the wheel back and forth to maintain your path.
Summary: I bought this wheel for 80 dollars at Circuit City, and to tell the truth it was a waste of my money. It is very bulky and it barely fit on my desk, and the racing just isn't realistic in my opinion. After one week (I took very good care of it) it just broke, stopped working. I reccomend you spend your money on something else.
Summary: Considering it is a fairly cheap wheel I suppose you get what you pay for; It is sturdy but the pedals dont have a high enough resistance and IMO have too much travel in them. The paddles are easy to reach but the other buttons are a little awkward and take some searching-for if you are in the heat of a moment.
