View Full Version : Steering Wheel Recommendation

26-10-2015, 11:08
Hello people!

So I'm currently using the G27 steering wheel but its come to a point where I simply cannot use it anymore due to the noise it makes.
It is really really loud and im having complaints from others in the house, and I think this is due to the gear mechanism..

So my question is to you guys, for around 150 (200$) what would be a good belt-driven wheel to purchase?
I've been trying to find second-hand fanatec wheels but they are impossible to find.

So please help me guys :)

I think the only answer here is the Thrustmaster T150. None of the Logitech wheels are belt driven. The T150 has dual system, both gears and a belt, but the reviews say it's well implemented. For that price, I don't know anything else. For anything better you ll be looking at 400+ euros

due to the noise it makes....

Trying to save you a bit of cash here... If you bring up the telemetry window thingy while driving, I bet the grinding noises come while the yellow line goes really 'fat' [spiking up and down rapidly.]

If this is true, you can go into the car-setup-FFB section and max out all 4 'smoothing' values, and see if it cures it. [If it does then go back and turn them down as much as you can. Depending on rest of your setup I would guess 2O or 3O would be enough, especially try the 'Mz' one]

Also useful for this, is the 'Wheel Position Smoothing' in the general-FFB in control config. I have this at O.O9. Also this one feels less 'horribly/weirdly' smoothed than maxxing out the carFFB smoothing.

Strange, my previous Logitech DFP was never loud. Great wheel for the price, durable, good ffb, served me well. Loved it.

the same problem in my house, I can only play at night and no complaints will sound the wheel and pedals.
I bought a SRW-S1 good results as generic wheel, but a fall the throttle shaft broke.
now in my country there is no where to buy, and Amazon does not send to my country
