Pros looks nice, comfortable
Cons can't get it to work on my gamecube!
Summary I'm in a situation here, I got this thing a week or so ago. The instructions on how to program the wheel for my gamecube are next to useless. I really want to get this thing going and some step by step instructions would be nice!
"I sure like it"on by Emptyjar
Pros Solid feel, Can adjust deadzone, can reprogam shifter and pedal, pedals are good
Cons Weak vibration, only about 170 degrees of rotation before it stops
Summary I like this wheel a lot, it's worked good for every racing game i've played with it. The vibration does work, but it's a bit weak when compared to controllers. Its really comfortable to use, when on my lap or on a little table. It's ability to adjust the deadzone area is a huge advantage, since other wheels i've use have no such feature. It's a good overall racing wheel.
Pros Pedals feel great, solid feel, sits in your lap very well, ease of setup, features
Cons steering is sloppy
Summary Keep in mind that I used this for GT4 only. It is not worth buying then returning. After adjusting the steering "dead zone" over and over I could not find a setting that was accurate enough to race with. Going from a corner to a straight was difficult, even with the steering "dead zone" at the best setting there was to much play in the wheel to find a good path on the straight a way...then if you try to pass, forget it. I tested it (or maybe it tested me) for about 5 hours before I gave up and returned it. I then purchased a Logitech Nascar wheel (see my review). If/when Madcatz fixes the steering problem this wheel will be great. Save yourself some trouble and buy a Logitech, the steering is great! I could go on about the Madcatz MC2 but it would be redundant...the steering is poor.
Pros If you want a shifter, theres no real alternative to this one. Aesthetically cool design
Cons No way to clamp or bolt to table/ suction cups dont cut it. Too much play in the weel and springback crosses the y axis/ for example if you turn left and let go, the wheel springs back and turns right a little, which is annoying. All the good wheels are
Pros Adjustable sensitivity Sits good in your lap Great pedals 2yrs, trouble free Re-Programmable button function
Cons Doesn't remember sttings. Must be programmed once turned off.
