    Racing games have never been at the top of my list, but I do enjoy them and I have the following games available to me that I acquired through my Xbox services. (Gold, EA Access, and Game Pass)

    Burnout Paradise
    Dirt 3
    Dirt Rally
    Dirt Showdown
    Forza Horizon
    Forza 5
    Project Cars
    Split Second
    The Crew
    WRC 5
    Grid 2
    F1 2015
    Need for Speed
    Need for Speed Rivals

    I'll also use it on my PC with a mame emulator for classic coin op racers like Road Blasters and Chase HQ.

    With all of these racing games and plus the shit ton of other games I have backlogged I figured an accessory would be a better investment. I don't need anymore games as I'm at the point where I have so many available that I don't even know what to play half of the time; so I decided to order a racing wheel yesterday and this is the one I got...

    It's a Thrustmaster TMX force feedback wheel. They usually sell for $199, but I was able to find one for $140. I was just curious if anybody can offer any input on this.

    Ebay- The price included shipping and it was from a legit seller. I was kind of apprehensive about buying one of these, but I got suckered into the deal.

    With most of the low end wheel/pedal setups. The pedal pedometers are usually the first thing to go. An if they are forcefeedback a dead zone will eventually form at the wheels center. This is for they arent designed for heavy use.

    Logitech series they came out with in 2006(?) to replace their Black Momo is the superior forcefeedback wheel/pedal setup. Theyve increased the version numbers throughout the years. ECCI is the top end non-forcefeedback wheel with TSW being the cheaper variant.

    The logitech wheel was around $300 dollars though. I also don't spend a lot of time gaming, so I'm kind of being a cheapskate about it. From what I've seen some of these setups can get really expensive. This one dude from a youtube video I watched had $8000 into his set up.

    This is the guy I'm talking about below. He reviewed the wheel I bought and said it was a good entry level wheel. He reminds me of the dude from The Princess Bride...
