Good wheel

Amazon
2 January 2004
  • Summary: It's a good wheel. But it has a lot of Dead Zone in it. Nascar 2003 Season is the worst dead zone. You can tweak it out so it dosent have as much. But for Dirt Track Racing, Rally sport challenge and other off road or on road games it is a great wheel but it dose crunch some times.

Couldn't be happier

Tom Explodes, Amazon
2 January 2004
  • Summary: I picked this wheel up at a thrift store for around 20 bucks. I'd been thinking about getting a wheel anyway, so I figured "hey, force feedback, cool! Hope it works," and sure enough, it works beautifully. This wheel has to be around 10 years old, but it still works like brand new.

  • Summary: let me just say first off that i have not used any of the competing wheels, so i'm not speaking comparatively here. i have owned this wheel for a long time now and it has seen a ton of use. i use it for F1 Challenge, and i've probably logged something like 100 hours of use on it.

Quality Wheel at Great Price

J. Atkins, Amazon
13 September 2003
  • Summary: This wheel is great and has sold upwards of $... in the past. With the rebate, this becomes a very affordable force-feedback wheel without sacrificing any quality.

Whilst initial enthusiasm was expressed by all the reality is that the computer is still used as much as it was, but this wheel has...

great wheel

Andrea Killingsworth, Amazon
24 August 2003
  • Summary: I have had this wheel for over 2 years, and it has been terriffic. It has gone from windows 98 to XP and is just as compatible as ever. It gets used and abused playing all types of games from the dirt track racing series, to formula 1, to nascar 4. It just keeps delievering the realism.

Great Wheel. but..

Amazon
7 August 2003
  • Summary: Very good wheel, great in ergonomics design. Quality is good. But the game software was very old. It was designed for Windows 98, a minor force feed back problems (related to the old game software) and a little tired, if you sit of a hour. But i still recommend to most users. Great price too.
