Like almost everybody playing on an XB1 controller, I was so disappointed with the way this game played. I finally went out and picked myself up a Thrustmaster 458 Spider wheel and was so astonished at the change in gameplay; I felt compelled to come on here and let the community know that you don't need a top of the line wheel to make this game play how it was meant to.

Isn't it great? And you don't even have a FFB wheel and it is amazing huh?

Didn't take the bate, good skills. i'm thinking of getting the same wheel to, seems to be getting a lot of good reviews.

Git - will be PS4 only, and around 3x price of the Thrustmaster Spider i imagine.

Tomorrow i am going to pick up Thrustmaster TX. We have Project CARS already out, and F1 2015 and Forza 6 are behind the doors. So there was no doubt about this purchase.

Just got my 458 Spider on Tuesday. I've never had a gaming wheel before and I love it. I wish I was faster through turns but I assume it will come with time. I'm a pad racer from way back.. 20 years back.. but this is a whole new level of fun and control.

I keep hoping there will be more wheel options soon but it's looking like the TX is the best option and may continue to be for a while.

I don't know what they cost in the UK or US... but in Australia it seems a TX is $750... I could get another Xbox One and a bunch of games for that!

Now I'm aware that I will have to download the current driver for the wheel but I'm wondering if you can just plug into the xbox one and download the drivers straight from the xbox ones Internet Explorer, does anyone with the TX have any input about this?

I was unable to do it that way.

Used my HP Laptop.


Also be aware that windows 8 and the latest thrustmaster interface do not like each other much. You will have to have quite a bit of patience to get through the firmware update.

You have to use a computer to do it.

Make sure you check this out. Makes it much simpler setting up your FFB.
