If you’re a fan of racing games then there is no better way to enjoy them than with a full racing wheel and pedals set up. With force feedback technology you feel every bump in the road, letting you experience collisions with other racers or the feel of your tires slipping out as you take a tight corner.
What types of racing wheels & pedals are available?
Racing wheels tend to come in two types, feedback and non-feedback. Feedback wheels are connected to a motor that mimics the resistance of the steering wheel in a real-world car. This increases the level of realism the player experiences and can also improve gameplay because it allows the player to react quickly to the changes made by the game’s physics engine. However, feedback wheels do come with a larger price tag and might not be suitable for all games. Non-feedback wheels are commonly used with games that don't prioritise realism, such as arcade racers.
Getting the best from your racing wheel
Compatibility: Always check that the racing wheel and pedal setup you are considering purchasing is compatible with your games console or PC. If you are looking at getting a force feedback wheel then check that both console and game support force feedback.
Installation: To get the best from your racing wheel and pedals, consider where you are going to be placing them. Not all wheels have a locking system suitable for attaching them to a desk and those placed on a smooth surface may shift around during use. Pedals should also be braced to stop slippage during use. Stands and gaming chairs are available that are specifically designed for use with both racing wheels and pedals.
