Not sure if this has FFB, but you could ask Hess.

I've still got that logitech wheel teeroy if you need it. Would also be more than suitable for your kids to use in the future after you've got yourself a new wheel.

used to Rinkly, my brother has it (and doesnt use it, its his mates rig.)

Sooo i tried the Mad Catz wheel for my first ever Mad Catz peripheral experience...

these people who designed and manufactured it should be lined up and stoned to death using old atari joysticks because thats how old and prehistoric this wheel is....what a f*cking joke!!!
no FFB, no rumble, pedals are like runaway dogs on the floor, no self centre.
its is totally crap!
i will be trying to get to borrow my brothers wheel tonight and if i cannot i will be qualifying using the controller.
dont talk to me today im angry........gggrrrrrrr! f*cking mad catz suck

so got a call today to go and collect my Fanatec Turbo S wheel/Clubsport pedals and shifter kit.
Got it all here and rigged it all up but the clutch pedal when pressed acts like a handbrake??? wtf?
help on this required, nothing mentioned via the fanatec site relevant to FM4

Go in to settings and change your clutch and ... what ever the other button is. I think it says something like invert buttons or something like that. I will check it out when I get on in a while.

PS:
Well done, on geting a real wheel.

I thought it just worked on wheel setting 1... Can't remember - but if you're checking later on Dazza I'll leave it with you.

any response about the change I told you about would be super...

I think it is the swap clutch / handbrake buttons.

What controller settings do you have in game?

As Frank said default Wheel setting 1 works.

Mine was swapped back in FM3, as I had the MS wheel and had the clutch on the B button. So when I started up FM3 with the new GT2 the clutch was a handbrake.

But, in saying that, I did not change anything in FM4, it just worked. So I am guessing as Teeroy had a MS wheel in FM4, he may have had the buttons swapped so the clutch button (B) was easier to use.

Be gentle with the Turbo until you know whats its really capable of, its easy to go too hard too early and end up breaking things.

And no, no innuendo.

This may help Teeroy, may not:
""I just setup my CSR wheel last night and I ran into this issue as well. To get the clutch to work you need to go to the difficulty options before you start a race and select manual shifting+clutch. I have no idea why this option is not under the controller setting, but the clutch works 100% for me now.

I hope this resolves your issue.""

also I know you will have everything connected correctly but double check your PS2 cable connections and do not have it plugged in via the USB this is for PS3 and PC only.

The Turbo is specifically designed to be completely wireless with the 360, just plug your pedals into the wheel and connect the wheel as you would a wireless controller by holding down the guide button.

A thick slab of wood underneath the table will help the clamps grip securely as the clamp works much better on thicker surfaces, if your not able to bolt it to anything.

Mr T,
I know you've already found this out, but the fanatec system is integrated wireless in the wheel on the xbox. You don't have to use the wireless dongle (if you got one). USB connection or wireless with dongle is for PS3 and PC.
