i owned a G27 for years and i liked it mostly, the only a bit anoing thing was the zero degrees hole
and i did read, that they changed the break parameters from linear to more sensitive at the beginning which seems to be much better

For me it was the trustmaster T300 rs gt or the logitech g29 (the G920 is the same but xbox layout while the g29 is Playstation layout).
The T300 is better but more expensive. But it has 1080 turn while the g29 has 900 turn.
Pedals on the T300 are better, espacially the brake pedal system.

Reason why I got the G29 is because I got it for a super price. New 399euro and I paid 160euro for it :eek: :mrgreen:

If you buy a wheel it also depends on how intense you will use it.
If you only play racing and wants to be the best then Fanatec it is.
But me the G29 works just fine, for me the best balance between how real it feels for how much time I race and my level of racing.
Just breathe :?

Be it the G29, the T300 or my old Fanatec Porsche GT3 RS*, all are good stuff for what we are doing with it

*it is strictly equivalent to the 2 other, technically and financialy

WHatever you look for, make sure it is NOT a 180 degree wheel. It makes it so much harder to drive cars with 360, 900, 180 degree steering.

At this level of quality, you'll have 900° at least, so enough

hmmm,
i can remember that i have cheated the G27 whilst calibrating the pan movement and only used 75° for full impact, to make it less sensible cause of the center spongy thing

You could always say to a game to use only 75% of whatever your wheel supports. 75% of 1080 is 810degrees usable. (if I did the math correctly) Which still is good 75 % of 180 is 135 degrees.

On some cars you should have preset controllers ready. no use to have all 1080 if the car only uses 360. For example, one of the threewheeler mods it is recommended to set the steering degree to 45 on your wheel.

I just know that driving sims with a 180 wheel is challenging as I drive with one myself (Logitech Formula Force EX, a 12+ year old wheel). Especially when the car in the sim has a 1080 steering. It makes the steering really twitchy. In Euro Truck Simulator 2 I have had to turn down the engine FFB, cause the vibration made the in game wheel go bananas... WHen I think about it, I should do the same in AC, as I do have the same issue there sometimes

i think the G 27 was at least 900°, it took about 2,5 seconds pan test when plugged
