Looking for a wheel for GT5, suggestions?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Was thinking about the logiteck gt racer pro until i saw the pedals, jesus christ!.

I have not used a steering wheel since gt1 and i seriously need one as i cannot turn corners in the game with a thumb joystick, just no precision at all. Its that bad ive given up playing the game for the time being.

So what are my options lads. If i had a budget £100 give or take but ill pay more for quality.

If you don't mind the manual shifter and are on a budget then go for the Driving Force™ GT

Look into the Logitech Driving Force GT. I have had mine for a year now and absolutely love it. Also keep your eye out, you can find them on sale all the time. A few weeks ago there was a dented box driving force gt being sold for $60 from logitechs site. I bought mine for $70 new last year. Don't pay retail, although you might be able to get one for around 100 euros with the dollar being so weak i am not sure what it sales for there. Good luck!

Fanatec GT3 RS (with clubsport pedals if you have the money)

http://www.fanatec.de/webshop/new_us...e43284deb6a422

http://www.fanatec.de/webshop/new_us...e43284deb6a422

http://www.fanatec.de/webshop/new_us...e43284deb6a422

or these pedals if you dont have the cash

http://www.fanatec.de/webshop/new_us...e43284deb6a422

Reason I say fanatec is because the logitech wheels supposedly have a ~10 degree deadzone, where the fanatecs don't. Of course the whole assembly is around $280 without clubsport pedals and about $320 with them.

if you have the money go for the G25/27. If you're on the budget and doesn't mind a sequential shifter then go for DFGT.

Um, what? There's no clutch, so no need to use two feet...
