In my opinion the best gaming console is the Logitech force feedback wheel. However its hefty price simply threw me towards the Thrustmaster GT. The technology behind this wheel is known as the "I-Force". It's responsible for all the force feedback effects you experience in every game. I'll deal with this in a few minutes. But for now let's see what the Ferrari Force Feedback wheel has in store.
Looks wise the Ferrari FF GT wheel has everything going towards it; sporting the traditional Ferrari logo in the middle of a silver face plate.
The face plate includes 4 more customizable buttons. There's one 8-way POV( Point of View) buttons, a Multi-Function (4 in 1) button and two action buttons. Furthermore there are two levers at the back of the steering which simulate the gear levers of a F1 racing car. The wheel comes with a gear shift lever as well, however I find the controls behind the steering much easier to deal with. Another reason is that the gear lever included is quite hard to shift in very critical situations and I'm sure most of you would find the F1 controls to be much better.Out of all the gaming wheels I checked out, this one had the most realistic steering out of all of them. This was the only gaming console that has an outer rubber covering, giving an even greater realistic feel to it. You might not need all the buttons that are placed in the wheel; however more buttons are never too much at all. I mainly use only the two action buttons since most car games do not require a great degree of customized controls. The gear lever located in the right side of the Ferrari FF GT is quite handy and gives a very realistic driving experience, however as mentioned before the only drawback is that it's quite tight, and as a result you're unable to change gears as quickly as needed.Next up are the pedals.
One of the main problems most gaming wheels out their have is that the pedals included are too light and they hardly stay in place. Sadly the Ferrari FF GT wheel suffers the same fate as other gaming wheels out their. The pedals are just too light and they move all over the place when you really get into the game. So you have to constantly adjust the pedals so that they remain in place, which is a pain. However if you place it so that it rests on a corner of a wall, all problems are solved. That's what I have done currently. However if not for its weight the pedals are great. Most other pedals I tested out simply do not give any resistance and they press forward with no effort at all, greatly hindering the realistic feel. However the pedals of the Ferrari FF GT wheel give the right amount of resistance you need.Also you're able to use both pedals, the accelerator and the brake simultaneously. This is a feature that is not found in most gaming wheels.
The pedals are well spaced between each other, and I personally prefer to use both my feet for pedal movement. I do have big feet, yet the pedals are well spaced between them and do not obstruct at all. If not for the weight issue, these pedals would have been simply fantastic.
