Feel the road, bumps and walls of Gran Turismo 3 A-spec like never before with this Logitech GT Force steering wheel. The official force feedback wheel of Gran Turismo, it features rubber hand grips for precise control, and premium gas and brake pedals for realistic racing action. Other features include 2 wheel-mounted gearshifts, 4 action buttons and a dual clamping system. Works only with PlayStation 2 system and games that support Logitech Force Feedback. Imported. 10Hx10" dia.
This PlayStation2 steering wheel supports Gran Turismo 3, F1 2001, Motor Mayhem, NASCAR Heat 2002, The Simpsons: Road Rage, Test Drive, and many other racing games. The wheel lets you feel the road, the handling of the car, and bumps, walls, and crashes like never before. Rubber hand grips provide comfort and precise steering control. The product includes two wheel-mounted paddles, a D-pad, action buttons, a dual clamping system with lap attachment, and realistic pedals.
The D-pad provides convenient control of menu selections, views, and other standard directional pad controls in driving games. Four action buttons on the wheel rim provide quick access to car control functions and menu selections. You can use the two wheel-mounted paddles as gear shifters when pedals are connected or as gas and brake controls when pedals are disconnected. Four action buttons on the wheel spokes act as the L1, L2, R1, and R2 buttons of a standard PlayStation2 controller. The dual clamping system holds the wheel base tight and secure, and is easy to tighten and loosen for quick installation and removal. The lap attachment provides a stable mounting surface for comfort and control when you are seated away from a table. The weighted base prevents pedals from slipping around. This product comes with a one-year manufacturer's warranty.

This Driving force is really good for the money and i'm amazed how its still functional after all these years...
- Its gear drivin' as term of Force feedback. Its stills feels good up to today.
- Buttons around the wheels are easy to use and locate (9 buttons, D pad and flappy paddles)
- The clamps hold up nicely and wont be moving the wheel if you are over-steering, Crash, Off roading etc. (But no hard mounting sadly.)
- Easy to use! Compatible with the PC and the PS3 too.
- Logitech profile have more options then the G29/920
- Its only 180 degrees. 90/90 lock on ether sides. Fine for arcade and simcade racers like GRID (2), The Crew but for simulation racers it will be very sensitive to the touch if you set it up right. Plus the bit rate is not that big.
- Pedals... Oh the pedals. Gas and break only and they feel the same resistance to another. You can mount a aftermarket spring below the gas and break pedals to make it more workable but other then that it's not great. Plastic too, but for the price you cant go wrong. They work so... Also they will slip on the floor or any smooth surface, put it on carpet on anything that is non-slideable. No hard mounting to.
- Logitech stopped supporting drivers for the wheel for years now on the PC. The only way to get this wheel working properly is to install the gaming driver 5.0 from some website and run it. Driver works fine but seriously Logitech... Great way to abandon your loyal customers.
-Power supply... WHY IS IT SO HUGE? Seriously, who thought that would be a good ideal to power the wheel with one of those brick power supply? But thankfully you can use a laptop one just to power the FFB.
Overall i'm very impressed with this wheel. Even back in 2001 this must be a revolutionary wheel. But time has catch up to it...
The wheel is not hard to adapt to in the game, I struggled a bit with getting it set up comfortably which is really not the fault of Logitech. They seem to have designed this more for a computer desk/chair and It is really difficult to make a couch or chair at home with the PS2 feel ergonomically comparable to a car seat. The wheel you can either hold in your lap with an attachment or you can clamp it to a table. I have tried both and currently run the table clamp set-up. The tough part is the ergonomics of finding a table/chair combo that puts the wheel in a comfortable position. I believe this is why more serious players build their own seat and or use a computer desk.
The pedals pivot from the bottom instead of hang and swing style that is in your car. This felt awkward to me at first, especially if you are wearing shoes because they tend to grip the actual pedals more and can cause them to slide away from you especially when things get wild on the track. I usually remove my shoes and play in socks, they will glide over the pedals smoothly and give you a better feel. The throttle and brake feel ok, it would be great to have the brake pedal give feedback the more pressure you apply similar to a real vehicle. I suspect that Logitech had to keep the force required to operate the pedals low to prevent them from sliding away.
I have no complaints about the wheel itself, I think the feedback is fine and the paddle shifters are great. I have never tried another wheel so I really can't compare but I would purchase this same set-up again if that tells you anything.
So to wrap up, if you own any of the Gran Turismo games I highly recommend a wheel and pedal set-up. You can modify this one to make it fit your home and that is probably best. The pedal sliding away problem is really operator issues, once I smoothed out my driving I not only reduced lap times, but the pedals stayed put. I assume holding the wheel with the lap attachment will have the same result.
