Fun

Marko, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: This wheel is really fun. I use it exclusively for Iracing and it does everything I would want it to and more. I really like the on the fly steering sensitivity change because it makes it a lot easier to find out the perfect sensitivity and control from track to track. All of the buttons on the controller aside from the two knobs on the lower left are customizable within the game and work well.

This was definitely a great purchase. My husband is an Iracer and he ...

  • Summary: This was definitely a great purchase. My husband is an Iracer and he had been looking into buying one of these wheels for some time. After we purchased it, he made some modifications so that it would fit his rig, and despite everything he did to it, it works perfectly. He really loves all of the buttons as well, he's programmed some of the non-essential ones to do other things. It's definitely worth it if you enjoy sim racing.

Calibraton does not go will again sim fine iraceing no

James Albertine, Amazon
5 October 2014
  • Summary: ok for sim race but does not go well with iraceing and others. Buy now you would think they would beaches for some of the problems. Calibraton does not go will again sim fine iraceing no, Waste of money now if they come up with control for other race sims. it would be a good deal. If they would not think of only sim race it would be worth the money. my vote shutdown and move on to a new business. Have emailed they do not care no answer.

Cheaply Made

Levi, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: Really enjoyed this wheel for about 3 weeks, 60hrs or so, and then the right shift lever broke off... I take very good care of all of my gear... smh bummer. This is a great concept and design, if only the paddles were sturdier. Update 10/25/14: I bought another one of these wheels because I am a bi-lateral amputee and this is really the only way I can drive in Assetto Corsa on my budget. I have about 100hrs on my second SR wheel and it is still functioning.

  • Summary: Works exactly as advertised. It works in every driving game I have tried so far. You have to map the controls but no big deal. Enjoy having all the buttons as well.

Need to get used to it

Pierre Nadeau, Amazon
9 May 2014
  • Summary: I really enjoy the control it gives me compare to regular XBox type controler. It feels solid in my hands, the gas and brakes control are also great. My only complains are about fatigue from long driving sessions. I mean when I play for more then an hour long. Also, with Grid 2, the only game I've tried for now, I easily lose control of my cars, but I guess I only have to get better at gaging my gas input and turning. All in all, a good product for the price.

Lasted from March 25 2014 to April 21 2014

Paul J. Shehadi "pjssr", Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: It was great while it worked. Now it is a $60.00 loss. The first thing to show wear was the up shifter. It had a loud click which eventually stopped clicking.. This wasn't a problem for me really as the click was annoying. Later I learned that both the down shifter and up shifter were supposed to click. In my case the down shifter never clicked which means that this item SOLD AS NEW BUT WAS NOT NEW. Why does Amazon put up with this?

Excellent for Casual Racing

Nick, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: With some practice I was able to do as well with this wheel as I could with a force feedback wheel bolted to a desk. Hooked up to Windows 7 and 8 computers without needing any drivers.

Fantastic wheel for the price

Grazioli, Amazon
4 April 2014
  • Summary: I'm quite a big fan of sim racers, especially F1. Needless to say, using a controller was becoming a bother for me, so I decided to get this wheel, since it was cheap and compared to older similar wheels that you can get for the same price, superior. And indeed it is. Even though it uses accelerometers to do the steering and that the wheel pretty much floats about, steering is pretty accurate. It steers smoothly, and I barely notice some jitter here and there, if at all.
