That looks like a great deal. The thing is that I have heard a few quality control issues with their products, but boy are those Fanatec wheels a thing of beauty.

A little bit of off topic but if you ever wanted to race on the Xbox 360, there is a device XCM F1 which allows you to do so. So great news for Forza fans!

one more quick question guys, I have decided on the DFGT but I noticed the shifter is sequential, does that mean I have to go through the gears in order? or can I skip gears like Irl

You have to go through the gears in order, thats how nearly every race car works

thanks I picked up my dfgt last night and found out the hard way



I dont mean to flame, but the majority of race cars don't have sequential gearboxes. The vast majority of track cars have normal stick shifts, because they allow for more control over gear changes

while i agree that most race cars have H pattern gearboxes, I don't really think that the sequential shifter is a disadvantage. The only reason I see for skipping over gears while shifting is either A) for a money shift or B) if your brakes are so powerful that you need to drop two gears at once... and I've yet to see that happen

Sequential transmissions love to be shifted without a clutch. I do it all the time upshifting my motorcycle. With the throttle on, press the gear selector towards the next gear and hold it. Then drop the throttle for a bit and the transmission will upshift perfectly. Downshifting is a PITA for rev matching so I don't bother.

In a simracing podcast Dale Jr. said that race cars use the H shifter but the computer does the rev matching so the driver doesn't use a clutch.

Best choices Fanatec GT3RS&clubsport combo now is $329.

Enjoy your DFGT OP. The wheel itself is good (pedals are meh) and only Fanatec has a comparable budget wheel. If $150 on a wheel can be considered budget. If you aim to upgrade the DFGT's pedals one day Fanatec's Club Sports are the best IMO. And they don't suffer the QC problems the wheels have become infamous for.
