F1 Fanatic - F1 Games
Now this looks nice.
Now you too can try and remember which button is the DRS and KERS too.
That’s on top of the price of the T500 that’s £385 at Amazon. Phew!!!!
Almost the price of a years worth of SKY.
Don’t think I’ll get that past the wife…
Meh, it’s a Ferrari wheel. No thanks.
Oh wow! That would be the dream gift for any F1 fan! OK, any F1 fan but Magnificent Geoffrey! :P
I would absolutely not recommend this wheel. I had a Ferrari Thrustmaster wheel before my current one (a Momo Logitech) and the paddle shifter snapped off in the middle of the race. Cheap plastic and not liable to last you very long if you race fairly often. My Momo has shown to be far more sturdy and more worth the investment. Even bought used, it’s lasted longer.
Despite the fact that i won’t buy cos its mega bucks, i must defend the T500RS and say this one of the best if the best wheel on the market, many reviews rave about it, one cheep budget wheel (in comparison) doesn’t mean that a top end wheel will be bad
That’s peculiar Joey, I had the exact same thing happen to me in the middle of an online race years ago on F1C! It was probably the same paddle too, the upshift paddle on the right.
I’d rather upgrade some internals of my PC than buy a new wheel.
@mg – Yep, that exact one. Damn thing began to feel soft, then next thing I know, it comes off in my hand.
Now, I’m not sure if I’m getting picky here, but InsideSimRacing have shown the install procedure of the wheel in this link:
If you’re going to have a choice, why the screwdriver for installation?
If you’re serious about spending this sort of money the Fanatec option starts to look better, with the quick release wheels.
I know what I’d rather do if I was going to switch between GTR of F1 wheels for my sim racing. Is this a mistake by Thrustmaster. I mean, how much does it cost to fit a quick release?
having used a number of my friends wheels over the years, can can say that nothing even comes close to the Logitech G27!
It’s not about looks, it’s about feel and build quality!
