Honestly, IMO, NOT the Fanatec...

I have not got one myself but I have seen adaptors you can purchase that allow the G27 and other wheels to work on the XB. Might be worthwhile invesitgating one of those. Question some others who have maybe used such a device. I had not had any personal experience with them so can't reallly add much more sorry.

I have a Thrustmaster TX and to me is just perfect with PCARS.

Purely because they are too unreliable for the price of admission. When they work, they are great... when they work...

+1 for TX. It is a very good system, particularly the base is great. Especially for a first wheel, I wouldn't go full blown Fanatec yet. The TX is a good entry wheel and is good enough to be used for a while. I advise getting the GTE wheel add on if possible, great quality.

I've heard their customer support is as reliable as their wheels, sometimes you get a good rep, sometimes you don't, sometimes you get a good wheel, sometimes you don't.

i have a TX for the xbone, the wheel is great but the pedals are well terrible, but an adapter from basherboards and the clubsports work great. on the fanatec issue i had 2 replacement wheels over the space of 5ish years first one failed after 1 week the replacement lasted around 20 months and was replaced with no hassle and that wheel was sold to help finance the TX.

I have the tx as well got mine when there was issues with them. Been through 3 bases but have had the last one for over a year now with no problems. Customer service was good and got bases shipped quick to fix the problems. I have the t3pa pedals and the shifter also really like the new pedals compared to the originals A must buy..

I was thinking about the club sport pedals. I was wondering do the pedals work right on the Xbox? I'm not familiar with them but do they vibrate or something besides the load cell If so does that work?

To be honest the new customisation of the TX wheel makes it a must. I'd hold off on the GTE wheel, as a new one is coming out later in 2015. The TH3P pedals ARE A MUST. The standard pedals are great, however adding a clutch pedal and the conical mod to the brake pedal make them a MUST have if owning the wheel. I have recently purchased them, and they have drastically improved my racing.

I have a tx since the day it was launched. pretty satisfied with it.
you can upgrade rim/pedals/clutch down the road if you want to.

Also +1 for TX wheel. Got it for a few weeks now and am very very happy with it. Precision is great, FFB is very good. Good buy! Btw, try to combine it with a Wheelstand, i got mine from wheelstandpro.nl. Really nice setup you got then. Think you can buy it from them in a combo pack with the wheel.

I'm using the Madcatz wheel for Xbox One, using on forza really loved it. I will try it with project cars when I get back from work, I recommend it because the finish of the wheel is really nice, its GT style. The peddle base is on the wide side, the peddels them selves are very nice.

+1 I use a tx with gte rim and a brake mod on standard pedals and it's great for the money!

the clubsports work great on the xbox and yes there is a loadcell in the brake pedal and depending on how you set them they do vibrate, my pedal goes nuts when im just at that point of locking. I would also expect the V2 pedals will be better.(my pedals are nearly six years old and still work perfectly)

I have the tx 458 with the t3pa pedals the th8a shifter and the gte wheel ( which I got when I purchased the T300 gte edition ). Fair point in saying I went all in. Recently picked up the wheel stand pro v2 to mount it all on and I must say its all very impressive
