[PS4] [F12016] New Steering Wheel?
« on: July 08, 2016, 08:21:35 am »
I am thinking about getting a wheel for F1 2016 and possible future Project Cars Leagues. If you guys could give me some feedback on these 2 wheels would be very appriciated.



Name: Thrustmaster T150 Force Feedback Racestuur - Ferrari Edition - PS3 + PS4 + PC
Price:   164.90




Name: Thrustmaster T150 RS Force Feedback Racestuur - PS3 + PS4 + PC
Price: 149.00



I am thinking about getting the Blue steering wheel. It looks better, I like blue and it's cheaper.

Remco, it's essentially the same wheel just in two variations. I have the blue PlayStation one and it works like a charm. I will upgrade to the T300 sometime in the near future but as a first wheel the T150 is a great piece of kit.

They are the same wheel aren't they, just one is PS branded and the other Ferrari.

I think Webcam has the T150.

Also, don't forget to factor in the potential cost of how you mount it, unless you plan to use the clamp and a desk.

The only thing negative to point out would be the clunk noises when you gear up and down. It's not bad during the day but going into the evening/ night you do notice it a lot. It can be distracting at times. I'm not sure if this is the same for all other racing wheels either.

Yeah they are. I'm pretty sure that's just a Ferrari re skin only. I also agree with humanfish. Depending on whether you're planning to clamp it to a desk or whatnot there could be a cost to also buying a stand.

I would recommend a Logitech wheel. I've recently started to use a Logitech DFGT on the PS4, it works due to a program called Gimx. The Connector costs 6 quid and it works like a charm. You even still have FFB.

Yeah I think the wheels suggested are a good choices for a first wheel. Don't want to blow 250 and not enjoy the experience.

Be interesting to see how your pace is on a wheel once you get up to speed, as not everyone finds the gains but it depends what you want when buying a wheel. Realistic experience and/or fast pace.

I would recommend a Logitech wheel. I've recently started to use a Logitech DFGT on the PS4, it works due to a program called Gimx. The Connector costs 6 quid and it works like a charm. You even still have FFB.

How is your wheel pace compared to pad?

Around 5 tenths off but I've only spent 2 days on it so far, will slowly improve over time
