    Yeah, she what you can do with your G25. I would like to know if I can operate the gear shift like I want to.

    The link went to the home page. There was no item. Got a pic of it, at least?

    Thanks for the help, OpelGT.

    OK, no problem.

    See if this link works if not go to Best Buy Homepage ( I've read your feelings about Best Buy) but you can see the wheel there. It's the Logitech-Driving Force Wireless wheel. It has no gas/brake paddles uses the paddles on the wheel. Also you might want to look at a Thrustmaster wheel called (Enzo Feffari) it has gas/brake paddles but you can unplug them and the wheel has two sets of paddles top/bottom for using for shifting and gas/brake not sure if you could find this wheel new but maybe on eBay. I gave one to my nephew couple years ago (he may still have it). Not sure if either wheel will work with GT5 but I'd bet that the Logitech wireless one will. I'm willing to try it out on GT5 for you. Here's the best buy link:

    Link went to homepage again so I did the ole Copy/paste

    OK, I see it now. Looks like something I want, but seems a little too cheap. lol

    It uses throttle and brake with paddles on the wheel. I could do that with the G25 or G27. I could always use the pedals for my two sons and friends that come by who might want to try it.

    Thanks for the info, though. That looks like something I could use, if the G25 or G27 wont do what I'm looking for. I just like to know if the paddles have 'full' throttle or brake, or if they have button sensitivity like the standard X and [] buttons on the DS3. I hate to find out when I try to accelerate out a turn and end up spinning out because the paddle is only full throttle.

    I appreciate the help. Thank you. :tup:

    On the G25/G27 or any of the Fanatec wheels, you will not have analog throttle or brakes if you do not use the pedals.

    All of the buttons, including the paddles, are all or nothing digital.

    I looked at the wheel and I think the gas/brake are progressive Not ON/OFF I'll hook it up next day or so and check. I think the wheel was about $79 when they first came out. As for cheap I'd say yes but for $40 not bad. I'll also see what the I can do with the G25(but I don't think I'll get anything but on/off with gas/brake with it).

    Hmmm, that puts a kink in my plans. Even the shifter, huh?

    They want $50 for it. One guy posted he got it for $30 on Black Friday.

    I might as well wait for a good sale day to get it. For the mean time, just use the DS3. I could always use the foot pedals with my hand. Left hand steer the wheel, right throttle and brake.

    Unless you find a solution for me with the wheel you have, but I'll have to wait for you to post something. Give me a PM when you've tried some options out.

    Thanks again for the help, dudes. :tup:

    Just adding to the list, the Driving Force GT works with GT3 A-Spec on the PS2, including force feedback, pedals and paddleshift. The only thing that doesn't work is the sequential stick shifter

    been trying to get a steering wheel in the UK for a while now, but hit two major problems.

    the DFGT doesnt have 3 pedles or proper gear stick, and the G27 is going for cheapest of 249.00 GBP (392.416 USD) but is out of stock everywhere....

    so is there just a shortage becuase Logitech arent able to cope with demand or is there some news about replacements or discontinued lines i dont know about,...

    just gutted i didnt take my friends advice and buy a g25 a year ago for £140 :(

    Hi guys, I'm looking to get a seat and I believe I have narrowed it down to two. I believe the Hotseat or the VisionRacer. I was wondering if anyone might have experience with both or one of these units. I have looked for comparison tests but I have not been able to find any. Thanks for your help.

    You've got the money for those :drool: anyway I'd say the hotseat, although the VR3 is stylish, the other good things it has is the seat, but not much adjustability. The Hotseat comes with a 5.1. Look at the ISR reviews and choose.

    VR3

    HotSeat

    Thanks for your reply. I have seen the ISR reviews and added another choice to my list. The Fanatec RennSport. Not an easy decision as they each have their own perks and drawbacks. Since they are all on the pricey side I am trying to make the best informed decision I can. Thanks again.

    Hi peeps, I'm new here.

    Waiting for GT5 to be released has given me the opportunity to consider what wheel and stand I should get. I stumbled accross this which is available from 17th Dec:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Subsonic-Ra...HXEQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1289158629&sr=1-1

    The price and all in one package (i.e wheel, seat & stand) appeals to me.

    Does anyone have any experience of Subsonic's products?

    I fear more attention has been spent on making the seat look nice rather than producing a decent wheel and pedals, but who knows, maybe it's an option worth exploring?

    Cheers,
    Ad

    I gather from that I'd best stick to the tried & tested products then!

    Thanks :tup:

    Hi racers :) I have one question for start.

    Does anyone can tell me which wheel is better for GT5, does dedicated DFGT is better than Logitech G27?

    Because GT is one of my favorite race game i want to buy a racing wheel this time, i was using standard Sony pad but this time i just want what's best for that game. :) Which is better investment, I'm playing also games on my PC and i know that logitech profiler helps to configure wheel for pc but if i buy G27 does that wheel work with ps3?

    Thanks again. I decided to go with GamePOD GT2 EVO in blue. I know it wasn't one of the rigs that I listed but it looks like a nice one with good features.

    Is GT Force Pro supported with the GT5 coming out in couple weeks?

    BTW for anyone looking out for deals I just saw this 35% coupon code, gdby2009, which brings the G27 down to $195 shipped @ Logitech.

    Has Logitech guaranteed the paddles on the G27 will function properly with GT5?

    Looks like the front page has not been updated since GT4! The G25 works with GT4.

    This info was posted at the Sony GT forum

    yeah, I think it was short-lived. I saw it at 1pm and it was over by 4pm.

    I live in Arizona so an international order was a bit more involved with my bank. I can tell you that Ash and the people at GamePOD are very helpful and kept me informed on what was going on. They were very fast on responses to my emails, normally within minutes. They are all very professional people, I would have no problem ordering from them again and I probably will. I can't wait until it arrives, Ash informed me that it will be shipping next week.

    They are having a sale this month on the EVO if that tempts you any more :sly:

    I agree, the OP needs to update the info with GT5 data.

    I have a race cockpit and a modded gt25 wheel with the ARC FFB Power up mod and the AP Electric loadcell brake pedal. Also I have the Logitech DFGT and have used both with GT5 and will say until GT5 is updated to use the full features of the gt25/27 I would save the money and get the dfgt wheel as all of its buttons and the bias knob changes traction control and brake bias on the fly. The wheel feels good right out of the box it is apperant that the GT5 game was made to use this wheel. For PC based games I will use the GT25 as I can adjust everything on the pc to make the wheel and pedals feel the way I like. I was hoping the GT5 game that had years to develop would have at least grown up more than GT4. The GT5 physics are better as the driving go and the screen looks better.:tup:

    Dumb question but does the logitech driving force (orig) work at all with the ps3/gt5? The higher end wheels are just still too pricey for me, since I wouldn't be playing too much I couldn't justify buying a $200+ wheel. Plus then I'd have to find something to mount it on, that old problem.

    Yeah, it actually does, they even show it in the options! I keep meaning to drag out my old GT Force wheel and see how it feels.
