MOMO Racing Wheel
by Voivod, 9 March 2003
since SBDT released the awesome GTR 2002 mod (reviewed
here), I have been itching to get my hands on a proper racing
wheel. I chose to get the new model by Logitech, the MOMO Racing
Force Feedback Wheel.
MOMO Racing wheel is the little brother of the popular MOMO Force
wheel, both wheels obviously designed by MOMO (http://www.momodesign.com).
The MOMO Force was much more expensive retailing at USD199 (~RM
765) when it was first introduced a few years ago. It has luxury
features such as fully leather-wrapped wheel, aluminum paddle shifters
and aluminum skid plates on pedals. The MOMO Racing comes without
most of the frills of the MOMO Force but with additional features
such as the stick shifter, better clamping method and carpet grip
strip on the pedal base, along with a lower introductory price of
less than USD100 (~RM 380).
I first saw the box containing the wheel at my local store, I was
quite surprised on how big it is, plus it is quite heavy too, weighing
in at around 10kg. Upon opening the box at home, I found that the
wheel and the pedals are neatly packed in between carton liners.
The packaging also contains the power adapter for the force feedback
motor, the driver CD and an installation manual.
