Need new wheel by Tuesday

Post by TEEROY 34 on Fri Dec 09, 2011 1:11 am

yup RU's dodgy MS wheel that replaced my dodgy MS wheel last V8 series has packed it in.

its going left to right constantly which is cool if you like making weird patterns on the tarmac using your tire marks but not cool if you have an upcoming V8 series to race in.

PLEASE HELP!
where can i get a new wheel from asap you WA blokes?? or other ideas on best price for mid range cost wheel

Teeroy,

this is your only real chance at the moment but wouldn't expect it by Tuesday unless you rang a store and asked if they had stock or if one of their other stores did.

Turbo S / Club sports.

I do have my old Logitech Drive FX, no force feedback (axial feedback, think vibration), used it for the first 2, 3 years of Forza, yours if you want it no charge, until you can source yourself something better.

Definitely call around your local JB shops. They are still around some (dunno about WA though) as I saw a few of them when I was just in Sydney (the one in World Square Shopping Centre in the city).

Good luck!

I saw the madcatz wheel and a few thrustmaster wheels at several EB games stores so check that out if you have time. They might have that 458 wheel, which looks nice. That mad catz was $130, so you would save $20.

The Turbo S from JB only comes with the wheel and the pedals. The wheel itself has paddle shifters. As for the shifter set, i dunno, Pagnian don't seem to have any in stock and don't know when they will.

I'm looking at getting rellies in Germany to pick a set up for what, 24 Euro and then bring it over when they come over next year.

I might be mistaken, but didn't you kill your last wheel right before the V8 Series V.
