    Wheel/pad

    Has anyone bought a wheel and been a bit...underwhelmed? Been playing racing games with a pad for years and loved it. After playing PC2 a couple of months and reading some of this forum i thought I'd treat myself to one, been using it a couple of weeks now and I've got a decent set up, got the feedback how i want it and... I dunno, i just keep hankering after my pad, i think it misses me.

    pc1 and pc2 dont do well with pads from what iv heard from pad users i use a wheel on project cars games but a pad for every thing else i know how you feel you get used to it though

    I had a good career going with the pad before i bought the wheel and i thought it was fine. Had the AI difficulty quite low, but thats fine by me.

    What wheel are you using?
    G29 > DS4.
    I don't have the hassle of packing/unpacking my rig when I want to race. Couldn't go back to gamepad. I tried on my mate's xb1 forA horizon. No thanks.

    What tire compound were you using?
    What was your tire pressure?
    What was the track and tire temperatures?

    it depends for me some games the wheel control settings arent like they are in pcars and isnt really comfortable and some dont support wheels (i know shocking)

    I could never go back to a pad either. It just kills the immersive feel completely.

    I meant G29 is better than the DualShock4 gamepad. I've used both on pc1+2 and... Ye, I'll stick to my wheel, thanks.
    It's overwhelming at first, and the ffb is unfamiliar, and our hands and feet not quite coordinated enough for track driving. But in a few hours it becomes natural and so much more fun.

    It's been a long time since I switched from pad to wheel... but as I recall, initially, driving with a wheel was very hard. However once I got used to the wheel and pedals, it was much more enjoyable and I got faster.

    Fast forward a few months ago, I had gout in my left big toe, couldn't really press a brake pedal, so I tried to drive with a pad... forget about it... There's no way I can drive with a pad now, just no ability to drive smooth for me with a pad... I can't do it.
