Hi guys,

I want to buy a steering wheel with play seat but I really don't know which one ist the best for the ps4 and project cars. The price doesn't matter.

Thanks MAX !

If price is no object then I'd recommend the Fanatec Clubsport V2 wheel base (http://www.fanatec.com/eu-en/wheel-bases/clubsport-wheel-base-v2-eu.html) and the Clubsport pedals (http://www.fanatec.com/eu-en/pedals/clubsport-pedals-v2-eu.html). I have the V1 pedals and they are fantastic.

Revvin... What about if money a problem? What's the best but cheapest one? With Force Feed back.

My mate loves his Thrustmaster T300 wheel, that's 299 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thrustmaster-Official-Force-Feedback-wheel/dp/B00NOJJPZU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1431427821&sr=8-2&keywords=T300) for wheel and pedals

I have the Thrustmaster t300 GTE, got it for 230 brand new and its brilliant. Some people complain about the pedals not being good enough due to lack of brake progression, they are fine for me, and you can always upgrade should you wish.

Years ago there used to be a mod for the Logitech G25 I had back then and it involved placing half a squash ball behind the brake pedal to give it a more realistic feel, I wonder if something like that would work on the T300 pedals? I've not seen them so wouldn't know if something like that would fit?

I have seen a few "home made mod" videos. There is one shared on simracings channel on youtube that involves buying some rubber fabric things that are used to stop chairs etc sliding (something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00H8UU3R0?colid=3FMZAY785FTZ1&coliid=IC1FG4DZ9AOVU&ref_=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl) you stick one behind the wheel and then one on where the pedal meets the stand. It seemed to work well but like I said I haven't found it an issue. I think it would be possible to mod it though.

Thrustmaster t300 for me......very good quality wheel, lovely grainy feedback and the right sized wheel too.....I read the criticism about the pedals, but I'm happy.......

Martin......what options are there to change the pedals?.......just out of interest......

You can have the T3PA pedals or the pedals from the t500, there is no doubt more but you would probably be looking at some real pricey options then. I am sure I read somewhere aswell that one guy had a adaptor where he could use his logitech pedals with the thrustmaster wheel.

I have T300 Ferrari GTE + leather wheel + G27 pedals: I'm very satisfied!

I would love to get the T300 but my girlfriends face looks more like T100.

Buy one and just scrub the '3' out and pretend its a T100 and the box just got damaged in the post :)

I watched a lot of tests of the fanatec v2 and it is really amazing I thought. Price ist round out 2400.

So I don't know what i will buy because I think the fanatic is only good to play the game on PC ( 3 monitors and so on )

What would you do guys ? Buying a completely set ( PC + monitors + Steering wheel ) or only the Trustmaster for the ps4.

I will play only few times a month, maybe 3 - 4 times

T300rs, great wheel, and as it is officially supported you can navigate all the PS4 menus etc..

I have the T300 with logitech G25 inverted pedal set (via the ricotech adapter) and it's a fantastic set up.

Hi mrvproject

I have a Thrustmaster T300RS and I would highly recommend it - best wheel I've had.

Why did you choose the rs version ? I am tempted by the gte version which is more beautiful IMHO.

Used to have a G25 and it borke then haven't bothered to get another, for PS4 I'm also wondering- I'm looking at a Thrustmaster T100 but not sure if it's compatible with PS4.
