I need a Steering Wheel.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just tried to play Shift 2 with my keyboard, and its a no go, it's way too difficult to play with the arrow keys. So I am looking for a good steering wheel, anything under $100, and I dont care if it's used. Open to all suggestions.

I thought I saw a Logitecjh MOMO steering wheel for sale here on OCN for $45. I'll try and find it for you.

There is it. Sorry it is $50 + shipping...an awesome deal if you ask me. This'll be perfect for what you need.

Ideally you'd want something like the logitech G27. If that kind of wheel is out of your price range you could always check for secondhand ones.

The other option you have is buying one without force feedback. You dont get the total experience, but on the other hand you dont have to plug it into an electrical socket either, making it easier to take out and set up. I have a thrustmaster ferrari GT experience and really like it. For people who want a decent wheel that is supported by all new racing games, and are not such huge racing enthusiasts that they are willing to spend hundreds, this is a pretty good compromise.

The Driving Force line of Logitech wheels are also really good. I have a Driving Force Pro and it works great on pc, you'll need special drivers. Download the Logitech Gaming Software driver and run it before you play. You can get that wheel for only

. They had a hardware refresh and came out with the Driving Force GT, but I don't really see a difference between the two wheels.

The G2x is a really great wheel though, definitely worth the price. But for a more budget oriented buyer the DFP is a great choice. I love mine.

any of the logitech or fanatech wheels will be great. I've got the Fanatec porsche 911 turbo S wheel with Clubsport pedals.

If money is a major issue, then go with the Fanatec Porsche 911 carrera wheel (better deal imo because of shifter+3pedals) or the Logitech DFGT.

You can see reviews for all of the wheels here:

Agreed, I have the driving force EX and while it is missing some features I would want, its a great little wheel and pedal combo

df ex only has something like 200 degrees of turning lock to lock. DFGT has better ffb than the DFP and can turn faster. Both the DFP and DFGT have 900 degrees of lock max.

I have a dfgt if you interested in buying it.
