    What wheel to buy?

    Looking for advice on what wheel to buy for my PS4, just started playing and started online take it it's better to use a wheel rather than controller? I had a wheel for PS3 but was just a cheap one and was rubbish?

    Also what's best way to find decent people to race online, as I'm just a novice you try race other novices and you with have folk just crashing for fun or people who are far to fast for novice races, I've raced couple of races in amateur but can't keep up.

    Cheers for any help

    Heard its super fun with a shifter once you practice and get used to it.

    Some cars are pigs in real life and it's the same in the game.
    Most people drive GT3 A shit tonne so they're really fast in only GT3 cars and fall apart in everything else.
    Start with slower cars. This "game" is super tricky because there's a lot going on from ffb to car setup to weather and track conditions.
    But with an ffb wheel it's fantastic.

    BTW check out the G29 thread while you wait for the wheel to arrive
    "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast."
    You put your left pedal in, You take your left pedal out,
    You put your right pedal in, And you slide it all about...

    Me and Hkraft both use the G29 by the way so when were suggesting it to you know that we are talking from experiance with the wheel

    What is the best sequential shifter on the market that's compatible with PS4 if any?
