i recently borrowed this wheel off a friend after temporerely swapping my saitek for this. And in all truth i could only find two advantages of the momo: The pedal set and the buttons on the wheel. I must admit that the wheel build quaility is second to none, although once again i think that the saitek is just as rugid.
Force feedback : Strong,smooth quiet.
Build : Rugid, expensive feel , grippy
Responsive ness: Fast , acurate, responsive
-- Playability --
I have been testing this game with Rfactor and Richard Burns Rally and i can safely say that it is fantastic. The moveable shifter meant that i could still shift no matter what car i was in weather it be a ford mustang or caterham 7. You will feel truely imersed in the game.
-- Sound --
This may seem to be a strange section but i found that with some wheels did have a probelm being very noisy. i must say that the saitek R660GT is probably the quietest ive used and the force feedback is still just as strong, stronger even.
-- Over view --
Although this is a fantastic wheel i would still recomend the saitek R660GT over this one.
I originally purchased by Logitech MOMO racing force feedback wheel about 3 years ago.
I have owned several other PC steering wheel and pedal set ups over the years and none of them have come close to the quality of this steering wheel set up.
The build quality is excellent, the wheel is the perfect size for gaming and very comfortable to use. The force feed back effects are strong and smooth and relatively quiet.
The pedals have a nice feel for set ups of this price range.
The ability to be able to switch between stick shift and paddel shift is nice and also the ability to switch the gear stick from left to right is also a useful feature.
Using this wheel certainly enhances the game play experience and i have seen many professional exhibition stands and race sim centres using these wheels!
If i were buying now.. would purchase the Logitech G25 racing wheel, but for the price if you can pick one of these up for a bargain you wont regret it!
Well what a great wheel!
I have had my momo force feedback wheel for approx 4 years now and still wouldn't change it for a newer version. It was great value for £60 to get so long out of it.
The wheel itself can seem a little chunky if you have a small computer table but this is the only disadvantage I can think of.
I run my wheel on a pc that I built approx 4 years ago and usually play Toca race driver 2 or Richard Burns rally with the wheel.
Both of these games required individual configurations to take place to use the wheel and both were easy to do, even for a novice to computers.
The wheel itself responds great to your movements and the 6 buttons on the face of the wheel can be set to your own configuration. I have never tried the gear lever and as an actual gear stick and prefer for this to be the handbrake, specially in Richard Burns rally. The gears can be control by the paddles on the wheel itself, which are positioned perfectly for your comfort. You don't need to stretch out your fingers to operate.
The foot pedals again can be configured for your own preference. You can determine how far to press down the accelerator or brake pedall for them to respond. They have a retractable carpet gripper on the bottom which is great to stop the pedals flying forward when you slam on the brakes. Not sure how this work on laminate though!?!?
The main reason I bought this controller was for the great reviews on the force feedback vibration and it definately does not disappoint.
I have mine set to a rating of 80% and when running into the back of the car on Toca or coming off the track and hitting a tree on Richard burns Rally, the controller literally rips your arms off. I fear if I set it 100% I might actually sprain or break my wrists!!!
Another great feature of the wheel is the realism of the controller returning to a central position, it feels just like a real car.
This is a great controller and I am definately in no rush to change it for a newer model!
