DFP / Frex / Momo 11 = awesomeness (apart from the pedals)

There is no: "This is the best wheel ever"

It really depends on what you like, your driving style and how much money you got etc.

btw.
I used the Microsoft FF USB (production stopped)
then bought the Logitech Driving Force Pro (DFP) and tried it for a while.
It's a cheap and a good wheel
but now I switched back to my 7 years old MS FF wheel.
For me it's not better or worse then the DFP but I just got a better "feeling" with it.

The MS FF is a classic. They must have had a brain fade not to continue on this model.

Yeah but I think it was just to good.
I got it now for 7 years and only the soft-plastic sheathing around the wheel "gave up" everything else works as it should.
Microsoft wants to make money, that's why they stopped it (because that wheel just works for a to long time) and they also stopped updating the software for it etc. Too bad sooner or later I must change to another one :weeping:

I went with the Logitech Momo Racing Force Feedback wheel/pedal for around US$99 or less. I had been using a 10 year old Thrustmaster T1, but I was on my last replacement parts and knew it had to go. ;-)

It is certainly better than a worn T1 bungee cord, although the force feedback takes some getting used to.

Of course I am awful, and only race the AI. Having done IndyCar and Nascar from Papyrus years ago, the Momo has really been a big improvement over the old T1, and I can't imagine trying this with a mouse!

Ha! More patience than I would have!

The Logitech Driving Force Pro is a very good wheel, however, if you can stand waiting a couple months, (longer actually) I'd wait fot the Logitech G25. However, that wheel costs more than twice as much as the DFP, so it's really up to how much you want to spend.
I'm hoping DFP prices should fall once the G25 is realised, or is that too much to ask?

Unfortunately best & cheap don't go together. There are a few very specialist, four figure pricetag wheel & pedal sets out there, or cheap ones like the momo. I own a black momo, and having tried my mates red momo, and another mates DFP, it is the easily the worst of the three (although the DFP has other flaws).

The G25 looks to be a very good compromise between quality and price. Will buy one as soon as they let me.
i use a logitech wingman formula force gp....its not all that bad and all that great either lol...good for racing at least until the g25 comes out :haha:
I've got the logitech wingman formula force GP since I started using LFS and to be honest I can’t say a bad thing about it

Now I just hope I havent done a Murry Walker and jinxed it

actually to be honest....i cant say a bad thin bout it either lol......just the pedals sometime when im playin lfs they dont engage all the way but i recalibrate it and waaalaaa its fixed
Hehe I got one of the last new Microsoft FFB wheels for 45 quid! Bout 5 years ago, still solid, although the rubber is starting to come lose. Bit of glue never hurt
By the way, does the DFP have a FFB features enable when used with a PC, (being a PS2 wheel)?
dfp is a fully supported wheel on pc if you download the logitech software and the ffb is fully implememnted along with button profiles etc


im sure someone will post link to software download but if youve a recent logitech joystick its the same prog
Ok cheers for that
I've recently decided to get a DFP due to everyone on here (in many other topics) saying how awesome it is. Hopefully getting it tommorow evening! if not early / late next week

Probs will get the G25.... when it comes down in price.
I think DFP is also the only 900 degree rotation wheel until the G25...
Anyone know when the G25 will be released (anywhere in the world)?

I read it's going to be $299 USD. So, a little expensive, but it includes everything i believe.

If the G25 is light years away, is there a similar alternative?
