Logitech steering wheel

Logitech steering wheel DEFAULT

You can spend as much money as you like on a racing sim setup for your gaming PC. I'm not just talking about extravagant prices for the latest graphics cards or CPUs. It's the monitors, the shifters, the pedals. Perhaps you want a full racing seat rig, or want to go fully-modular with the wheel base and steering wheel. Top-notch rigs trade affordability for realism, immersion, and feedback on the track. 

But while there's a big difference between McLaren's top-secret F1 simulator and the $400 Logitech G923, you'd be surprised how much realism there is on offer from something cheap and cheerful in the sim racing world.

The Logitech G923 is a wheel I've been keen to try out for some time due to its popularity. It follows in the footsteps of the Logitech G29/G920, a popular racing wheel for PC/Xbox/PS4, and very little has changed between them. In fact, they're near-enough identical. 

It's no surprise, then, if you're an owner of Logitech's previous racing wheel, the G29 or G920, you'll not find a suitable upgrade path in the G923. I'd recommend checking out the Fanatec CSL Elite or its upcoming CSL DD wheelbase. You could even go whole hog and step up to a more pricey direct drive option.

Similarly, if you're in the market for a cheaper racing wheel, the G29/G920 make for a great, PC-friendly options that have come down in price significantly since the launch of the G923.

Importantly in this case, though, the Logitech G923 can be considered affordable. For that, it sticks to its roots with a twin motor force feedback construction. It's not quite a direct drive or even belt-driven wheel base, but it's got kick where you want it around the corners or over bumpy terrain. You'll know when a tyre is clipping the outer edge of the curb, or when your left rear clips the grass—it's that level of fine-grain feedback you'll need to nail lap times at the ragged edge of sim-racing.

Logitech G923 specs

Wheel: Anodized aluminium/leather wheel with steel steering shaft and rear shifters
Base: 
Dual-motor geared force feedback
Pedals: 
Tri-pedal unit with carpet grip system
Movement: 900-degree
Price: $400 (£350)

The G923 certainly hits that sweet spot of enough... what's the best word... womp? It throws the wheel around some, is what I mean. There's also enough resistance there to mimic the racing experience and keep you close to the track. in a way that you simply can't experience without decent force feedback. It's not going to throw you around corners quite like some more expensive kits, but at the same time the G923 isn't scared of dragging your wheel off course as you're careening out of a corner.

The benefit of this wheel over some others is that, despite being relatively new, it benefits from the many G-series wheels before it. Most games recognise the wheel natively and will set the controls accordingly, but for those that don't there are tons of helpful guides on how to do so, either for the G923 or the G29 and G920. F1 2019 was the only game I had to hop into the options menu to setup, and I simply followed these guidelines from Reddit for the G29.

The Logitech G923 is much more of a competitive racing wheel than you'd expect.

One of the few changes with the G923 over its predecessor is the introduction of TrueForce, a software feature that translates in-game physics more accurately from game to wheel.

How to explain TrueForce in action... it's sort of like a low humming as you glide over the track, which translates the finer features of the track into your wheel. I'd say it does feel like driving a car, at least more so than with it disabled, although it doesn't feel like it's usable information when racing. I enjoy the feel of it, it's just limited in scope, and that's both in terms of on-track feedback and support. TrueForce is currently supported in just seven games:

Project Cars 3, Assetto Corsa Competizione, Automobilista 2, GRID (2019), iRacing, Monster Truck Championship, and Snowrunner.

As a way of differentiating the G923 from its predecessors, perhaps that's not all that convincing. As I mentioned, if it's an upgrade from the G29 or G920 you're looking for, this isn't it. 

For new super licensees and growing gearheads there's an well-rounded package here, though. The G923 is well-built: the rear may be plastic but the metal and leather finish on the wheel itself brings about longevity where it counts. Unfortunately, the inclusion of leather does mean this product isn't vegan. 

The shifter paddles (flappy paddles) feel responsive and mechanically satisfying, too. My only concern with the construction is with the way the wheel attaches to a desk or frame. It's not the most stable design, depending on your desk, and keeping it firmly planted can mean cranking the latches down pretty tight.

The maximum depth of the mounting system is 3.5 cm, with the plastic extension clips removed, so if your desk is thicker than that you'll either have to screw the wheel in using the two threaded holes on the underside of the unit, or attach a thinner board and clamp that to your desk through other means.

Perhaps the best bit about the G923 package though is that it's more than a racing wheel and wheelbase. It's a set of three pedals, too, and really solid ones at that. I was pretty taken aback at the quality of these pedals the first time I used them, they have all the makings of higher-end pedals where it counts.

The accelerator delivers a decent linear press with a snappy return to keep it glued to your foot, while the clutch brings similarly swift response with increasing tension as you depress the pedal—enough to create a faux bite point. The brake pedal, however, is the highlight of the three. Slightly tweaked from the G920 and G29 design, a progressive spring design requires serious stomp power to use. So much so that the units carpet grip system is something of a necessity for serious racing, and you'll want to consider a chair with lockable castors to keep you firmly in place and gunning for position in-game.

The pedals only add to what I feel is an already impressive package in the G923. An all-rounder like no other, you're getting a wheel that not only feels great, it plays great too. I've failed up until this point to mention this wheel is simply great for racing. It's not some tiny, gimmicky wheel that can nary stand up to a controller. It's built for racing games. It makes the racing game experience addictive as heck, as I've waxed lyrical about already, but it will also allow you to be more accurate, faster with any luck, when racing.

If you're a motorsport fan, a lapsed virtual racer, or a gamer looking to broaden your horizons with sim racing, the Logitech G923 is much more of a competitive racing wheel than you'd expect, and with a competitive price tag to match. Similarly, though, it's still worth checking out the G29 and G920 while they're still available, simply because they're much of the same for less cash.

Logitech G923 racing wheel review

From the brake pedal to the force feedback motors, the Logitech G923 racing wheel delivers at a grade that is hard to match at this price tag. Through and through, it delivers an experience that is at least comparable with pricier, more modular sets.

Racing wheel

Video game controller

A racing wheel is a method of control for use in racing video games, racing simulators, and driving simulators. They are usually packaged with a large paddle styled as a steering wheel, along with a set of pedals for gas, brake, and sometimes clutch actuation, as well as various shifter controls. An analog wheel and pedal set such as this allows the user to accurately manipulate steering angle and pedal control that is required to properly manage a simulated car, as opposed to digital control such as a keyboard. The relatively large range of motion further allows the user to more accurately apply the controls. Racing wheels have been developed for use with arcade games, game consoles, personal computers, and also for professional driving simulators for race drivers.

One of the earliest racing wheels for the PC mass market was the Thrustmaster Formula T1, released in 1994.[1][2] It had no force feedback, only some form of spring-based centering resistance proportional to the steering angle.[3] Two of the earliest FFB wheels for the consumer PC market were the Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Wheel,[4] released in 1997, and the Logitech Wingman Formula Force.

Force feedback[edit]

Racing wheels started off as simple plastic wheels hooked up to a rotary potentiometer, which were sprung by springs or bungees. These spring-based wheels had a reactive torque that increased proportionally only to the steering angle, without regard for the simulated vehicle dynamics.[5]

Eventually manufacturers began to use electric motors in the controllers, in place of springs, in order to achieve a level of force feedback (sometimes abbreviated FFB), first seen in Microsoft's Sidewinder wheel. At first this technology simply provided the centering force and other artificial effects such as shaking the wheel in a crash or other vibrations. However, as driving simulations have evolved, their physics engines have become more accurate,[citation needed] allowing also for linking the force feedback close to the simulated vehicle dynamics of the in-game physics.[5] This allows the user to truly feel what forces go through the steering rack, instead of just artificial effects, and genuinely enhance the realism of the game.[citation needed] A fundamental factor for an adequate subjective steering-feel and perception of drivability from a force feedback wheel, is the transfer function from steering torque to steering angle.[6][7]

In 2015, a preliminary comparison of gear-driven and direct drive wheels in the 0-30Hz frequency range, for a study on hard real-time multibody simulation and high-fidelity steering wheel force feedback, concluded that direct drive wheels are preferable.[8]

Still the Best Beginner Sim Racing Wheel? - Logitech G29 Review

Best racing wheels 2021: the best peripherals for racing games

A force feedback racing wheel needs to be on the most-wanted list of every racing fan. It’s probably even more important than upgrading your graphics card or jumping from an Xbox One to an Xbox Series X. 

These wheels use motors to simulate the forces of a real car. You can feel the grip on the road beneath your tires, the rumble of different surfaces and the jolt as you lose traction. 

A force feedback racing wheel can improve your lap times, but they are fantastic even if you struggle to keep the car on the road. The added immersion alone is worth it. 

Why the focus on “force feedback” wheels? While simpler arcade-style wheels are available, and you’ll find one of them in this round-up, a lot of the best arcade racing games these days are made for gamepad play primarily. They simply don’t benefit from a wheel in the way a semi-realistic or sim-grade game does. 

There are four main brand to consider in the wheel world. These are Thrustmaster, Fanatec, Logitech and Hori, which has just released its best wheel yet, the Hori Force Feedback Racing Wheel DLX. 

$200 is the starting price for a force feedback wheel, the price of Thrustmaster’s T150. Any less and you’re looking at a simpler rumble wheel, which just isn’t as exciting in our book. And, good news, there are no true duds among force feedback wheels.

We’ll look to let you separate the good from the great in this list, and it will depend on what features you value most. 

Before buying, just make sure a wheel supports your format of choice. It will either support PS4/PS5 and PC or the Xbox One and Series S/X consoles and PC. We’d love a totally platform-agnostic racing wheel, but that’s just not how these gaming accessories work. 

Thrustmaster T300 RS

Powerful racing

Specifications

Rotation: 1080 degrees

Feedback type: Force Feedback

Drive type: Helical gears

Compatibility: PS4/PS3/PC

Reasons to buy

+Powerful and smooth force feedback +Solid wheel

Reasons to avoid

-Good pedals cost more -Rubber wheel as standard

The Thrustmaster T300 RS (PS5) and TX (Xbox) are the ‘default’ enthusiast racing wheels from Thrustmaster, and they’re some of the best around. There’s now an even more expensive T-GT II but, as that costs £699/$799, it’s out of reach for most budgets. 

What makes the Thrustmaster T300 RS one of the best racing wheels is the improved force feedback system. It’s not geared, rather using a series of belts that are powered by brushless motors. This gives it that perfect mix of power and smoothness, for a sense of realism and immersion you can’t really beat at the price. 

Any force feedback wheel will add a whole new dimension of fun to reasonably realistic racing games like Forza Motorsport 7 and Assetto Corsa, but at the price these Thrustmasters are the obvious choice. There’s a little gnawing rumble as you fight against the wheel, which is the feel of the motor working, but it’s otherwise great. 

The belt system does cause a fair bit of heat after a while, necessitating a fan system that kicks in after you’ve been playing for 10 minutes or so. However, it’s not too distracting, and quieter than the Logitech G29 in action. 

There are a few downsides to these generally great wheel sets, and it’s all about the parts outside of the wheel base. The steering wheel is solid and very grippy, but uses a rubber grip rather than a leather one. 

Many people will be fine with the material, but after using the G29 we did miss the feel a little. 

Many owners end up wanting to upgrade the pedals after a while too. The pedal caps are metal, but this is really just a basic plastic construction, without the stiffness of a great board or more advanced features like a high-end progressive brake. 

There’s a solution, but it’s not cheap. These wheels are actually part of a system – you can get other steering wheels and more advanced pedal boards, the T3PA and the fab T3PA Pro. There’s even a manual gearbox if you want a proper old-school driving feel. 

Fresh out of the box the Thrustmaster T300 RS lacks a few of the Logitech G29’s touches, but its force feedback is a lot better.

Fanatec ClubSport v2.5

The king of belt-driven racing wheels

Reasons to buy

+Intricate and powerful force feedback+Fab build quality+Runs cool and quiet

Reasons to avoid

-Costs a lot when you add top-quality pedals-Not PS4-compatible-No bundled table clamp

The Fanatec ClubSport 2.5 is no longer on sale at Fanatec's online store, suggesting it has been discontinued. However, it remains one of the best-quality racing wheels you can get.

The Fanatec ClubSport v2.5's force feedback is superb, with depth and fidelity not seen in alternatives that cost less. Its build represents the best of Fanatec too, with plenty of metal on show and a translucent panel up top that lets you see its inner workings. This thing feels like it'll outlast your next console. Heck, it might outlast you.

It's quiet and runs cool too, thanks to a well-designed dual fan cooling system. 

If you have the money to spend, this is racing wheel one to get. However, it doesn't come with a table clamp. The Fanatec ClubSport v2.5 is made for a permanent setup. It doesn't want to spend 10 months of the year in a cupboard, although Fanatec does sell an excellent clamp separately.

This is not for the PS4/PS5 crowd either. It's for Xbox and PC only. 

Logitech G923

A racing wheel ready for next-gen consoles

Reasons to buy

+Smarter Trueforce force feedback+Leather wheel covering+Improved progressive brake pedal+Supports next-gen systems

Reasons to avoid

-It's Xbox One or PS4, not cross-platform-Old-school helical gearing is still used

The Logitech G923 looks almost identical to the G920, but there are some major changes underneath. It adds Trueforce, a more intelligent kind of feedback that needs to be optimised for each game. 

iRacing, Assetto Corsa Competizione, Snowrunner, GT Sport, and Grid are on the list today. Don't expect too many oldies to be added, as it requires more work from the developers. 

But what does Trueforce do? It's a haptics based system that transmits the feel of the road through your fingers and palms. The feedback is no longer mostly about struggling against wheel as you take a corner 5mph too quickly. You'll feed the tarmac tickling your digits. 

Logitech has also upgraded the G923's brake, for more progressive resistance on the depress. 

It's a healthy level-up that makes the Logitech G923 seem ready for the PS5 and Xbox Series X. But it's just as happy with the Xbox One, PS4 or PC. Make sure you buy the right version, though. There are separate versions for Sony and Microsoft consoles, and both types have the same "G923" name this time around. 

Most of the fundamentals remain the same as the previous Logitech G920. The G923 has Logitech's helical gearing system under the hood, which does not provide as smooth a feel as the Thrustmaster T300 RS.

Logitech G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel for PS5, PS4 and PC

Pros: Excellent build quality, superv feel of steering wheel and the pedals are the best I have ever felt, worked flawlessly out of the box on PS3 and PS4, I have not tried it on PC yet but considering Logitech started making peripherals for PC and myself owing several Logitech PC products For years without a problem, I don't expect any problems with the G29 working as advertised on PC. This is a product I can recommend easily.

Cons: None as far as quality or workmanship, but me being a***l about every detail I must say, the red dial in the middle of a beautifully crafted black and blue steering wheel looks out of place, it looks like a bumper sticker on a Rolls Royce.

Overall Review: Logitech could improve this product even further by having the symbols on the buttons light up, not the whole button, just the symbols, because the buttons although well placed are hard to find in the dim light of a simulator room. ***********For PS3 owners, please bear in mind that due to platform limitations, the Revolutions Tachometer LED lights and the optional Manual Shifter do NOT work on PS3, this is not Logitech fault so don't blame them, the PS3 is just too old.***********
