First Impressions of the Logitech Nascar Wheel for
I've been looking for a wheel for the XBox for a while. I have a Madcatz MC2 for the Dreamcast, and was expecting similar performance from the XBox version, so I passed on it. The MC2 is not a bad wheel, but the feel is quite toyish, and the response is tenuous. Thankfully, the new Logitech NASCAR is a more solid wheel, and has better feel, accuracy and control than the MC2. I've tried this wheel with Project Gotham Racing 2 and Rallisport Challenge 2. Here are my first impressions: Pros: 1. Typical Logitech build quality: Everything fits together well. 2. Control is precise and accurate. 3. Nice to have the slot for the XBox Live communicator. 4. Adjustable sensitivity is easy to use and works well. 5. Pedals have good throw and spring weight. Cons: 1. Lap wings are too small for an adult. 2. Suckers do not make up for the lack of a clamp. 3. Wheel is textured, but plastic and not rubberized. 4. Vibration is barely perceptible, even in Rallisport 2! 5. Pedals are small and close together. I'd recommend it for forty dollars or less. But I'd also advise to hold off for those that are considering the upcoming Fanatec Speedster wheel.
