    Realy want a Racing Steering wheel for my video games

    Been looking around the net for a steering wheel/pedal combonation for the upcoming Forza 4 but dont see anything wheels for the Xbox...There is Fanatec but they are having quality control issues and there products are on back order ALL the time. Are there any Xbox racers out there that use a wheel???..If so recomend me one...Thanx

    Hello, I started a thread for this a little while ago. I too am a Forza cokehead and I am anxiously awaiting Forza 4. I have a Microsoft wheel which is a piece of $#@! (i got it for free).

    Other than that I have heard only good things about Fanatec, the logitech wheels have some type of data converter that lets you use them on an XBOX but I do not know how stable this setup would be (in game gliches and $#@!).

    Anyway, welcome to the forum and good luck finding a good wheel; post up pics when you get it.

    Well a buddy of mine told me about Fanatec but have been following on in another website and there are alot of people that are disapointed in there product lately. I dont mind spending $500 on a wheel but it better be WORTH $500...Didnt know about the converter for Logitech..Ill look into that...BTW is there a thread in here about Forza races/setups???

    Yea I wasnt a console gamer at all until I played forza at my friends house a couple times. One thing led to another and he gave me the game, I didnt have an xbox though. So I had to buy an xbox to play the game, and I didnt have a TV, so I bought a new plasma just to use the XBOX. Basically I got poorer because of forza.

    You made a good choice...I assume you play online....The lobbies arent as full as they used to be but you can always find a race....Been toying with the idea of taking my Assists off (ABS).....Your gonna get even poorer with a purchase of wheel and pedals..=)

    I took off my traction control, stability control. But i leave on ABS and red line breaking. I always drive manual without clutch, i cant possibly shift using the clutch too many $#@!ing buttons to push. I think right now im at +70% CR.

    Fanatec wheels are ridiculously good from what I've heard. Vibrating pedals, 900 degree wheels, wireless dongle with the H-shifter

    I ordered one for my friend's B-day. I'll let you guys know what I think. I play lots of race sims on PC and am very familiar with the current affordable FFB wheels. I personally use a Logitech G25.

    You should read reviews especially over on the iracing and sim forums.

    Fanatec has good stuff... sometimes. So far the only near 100% issue-free products are the Logitech G25 and G27.

    I know Fanatec is a little shakey sometimes...What I meant is the converter pretty reliable?

    wow i didnt realize we had so many forza players on here! I frequent Forza a lot, and race with AI set to hardest, manual w/o clutch, no stability or ABS, and sometimes have TCS on depending if its high powered RWD car or not... we should set up a Bimmerboost user Race.
