Anyone else suffering with really sweaty hands when using the T300rs wheel?

Anyone resorted to gloves?

Gloves for sure (cheap mechanics jobs (http://www.arco.co.uk/products/1235300/299119/Arco+Lycra+Black+Glove)), as I don't really like the wheel grip but I am not shelling out for the leather one!

Same. Had some brand new muddyfox gloves left over from my failed attempt at getting back into cycling.

They're excellent - feel just like racing gloves & the fingers fit perfectly so it's easy to press the wheel's buttons.

Changed the title for you, from 'T300rs & sweety hands' to 'T300rs & sweaty hands'... :D

Oooh! How is the F1 wheel? I've been interested by it, but boy is it steep in price.

To be on topic, I can't see sweaty hands being an issue. I'm in an A/C'd room with a turbo fan next to me. :cool:

Hahaha! I know that feeling, I just wish I could put my SIDI shoes and Giro helmet to good use on the same way ;)

I've used some "general purpose" hardware store gloves from day one. I've dealt with dirty controllers and didn't want to deal with it.

Haha yeah I've also got the Giro helmet hanging from the bike's handlebars in the spare room. Think it's probably been worn twice max :)

I've cracked a Giro and shredded Sidis, while in them of course. Would have done more if I hadn't gotten tired of riding around car traffic during races in my locale, including crashing into it.

I added the Thrustmaster TM28 leather rim to my TS300RS, and sold my original TS300RS steering wheel on Ebay to get back some of the cost. The leather has a nicer feel than the original and I'm finding it a lot more comfortable - it's slightly softer to hold. It doesn't make you sweat as much either. So that's another option perhaps.

Since I was more into MTB the kind of traffic I had to deal with was a bit different, mostly snakes and wild dogs, but I've managed to run over a few cars on my biking days. Good times :)
