Should I buy a new wheel?
« on: December 21, 2016, 07:53:35 AM »
I have a Thrustmaster T150 and pedals.
I looked at a Logitech G29 or bigger wheels and they are too big for my hands and I can't really reach the buttons but everyone else has Logitech G29/27 or a more expensive Thrustmaster wheel and I feel like I'll always lose to them because I have a cheap wheel and pedals. :(
I'm still a kid, and I ain't using that as an excuse
I just got a lot to learn and that's the truth

Just because someone has a better wheel, doesn't mean they will be faster.

Invest in better pedals, they will make you faster.
My Fanatec V2 pedals give me alot more feedback during braking and save me around half to a full second a lap.

Get a 2nd hand g25 and some proper pedals and you'll be set for life ;)

Will actually second that, pedals are more important than the wheel itself.
YEAH BOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

They aren't on the level of Fanatec Clubsport Pedals ( Which is basically what most Top iRacers use ), but they aren't the worst pedal set either and probably are on the same level as the Logitech G2x pedals.

So decent but not "Pro" if you will.
YEAH BOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
