Driving Force Pro Wheel for a PC

Post by Coopster » Thu Nov 03, 2005 8:04 pm

I know its possible to setup this wheel for a pc, but I would like to know if any of you guys out there use this wheel, and if so , was it hard to setup? (I think I read this somwhere here before). Im not sure if I need 900 degress of rotation. (leno help me out here) or if this wheel is any better. Im not sure if my good old red momo will last the "offseason" testing.

in case your wondering what it is:

Well...the 900 degree thing only works with gamesthat support it, at least that's what it says on the web page.

Since it is a Logitec, I would assume you could use the utility I used to calibrate my MS wheel, as IT was from Logitec. DXTweek2. I assume this is a standard USB connected product, right ?

My only concern with the wheel is that it always felt lightweight, cheap, and plasticky when I would wrap my hands around a display model. I've never used it in a game, though.

I never met an apex I didn't like... to miss.

The MS wheel is not as plastic feeling as what is currently on the stores shelves, so I've stuck with it.
