 Nice piece of kit!

Ordered on Friday night. Posted on Monday. Arrived Tuesday. When I order DVDs they usually take 4 or 5 days so I was well chuffed to get my wheel early.
This is a solid piece of kit. The build quality is superb. The wheel has a great feel to it and the pedals have got plenty of resistance so they feel just like the real thing. It's easy to mount onto your desk. The clamping mechanism doesn't look too impressive as you take it out of its bag but don't be fooled. It's as solid as a rock once you've screwed it into the wheel base. I've only been using it for a few hours but I'm already impressed. I'm restricted to playing on "Race Driver: Grid" until I can get hold of GTR Evolution. Grid doesn't recognise the wheel so I've had to spend a couple of hours of tweaking and changing the game controller settings until it felt right. It still needs some work but that's not the fault of the wheel.
Anyway, like I said, it's a great piece of kit.

 F430 Superb!

The guy underneth summed it up perfectly. Best wheel on the market for the money, my mate has the Logitech G25 racing wheel and there aren't much differnces tbh. You miss the clutch & the six speed shifter box, but If you are into simulation racing games you don't need the clutch and box anyway, it's actually better because the pedals are further apart, that's a good becasue your feet dont touch each other.

Amazing build quilaty, nice gear paddels & good tenchon in the brakes & throttle.

Absolutely delighted with this wheel for half the cost of the G52 wheel.

Ordered sunday posted monday arrived on tuesday wow what service...and what a wheel this is. It's an 11" rubber wheel, very solid and it feels great in the hands, some people don't like flappy paddles but me i love em (they are the future). The rotation feels like a real car though it's not full rotation as like say the logitech g25 but i don't think you really need that, it is so smooth and has that high priced feel to it. The paddles are metal (wow) so you won't break them in a hurry and feel just like a real ferrari, right for up left for down. There are 17 buttons in all according to the game controls properties (still having fun finding them all out). The peddles feel so responsive and have that feel of just enough resistance to give you that realistic touch.

Overall this is one awesome steering wheel forget buying the high priced ones like the g25 go for this its half the price and just the same or as good in my opinion, like said it does not have a gear stick or clutch just paddles but the build quality and feel to it have just blown me away, well done to thrustmaster...

I got this wheel few days ago on my 30th birthday and I have to say it's absolutely amazing! It's great quality, looks great ... So far, I only tried it on NFS Underground 2 and it completely changed my game experience ... it's superb!
If you're thinking about buying a wheel but you're not sure ... this is the ONE. Go for it. It's definitely worth the money!

 Is this xbox compatible?
