You don’t get a lot of feedback for instance, when you slam into a wall you’re not jerked the opposite direction like you would be in real life , but the feel is still pretty good. It’s a minor criticism, though. Not only do they let you fly using a rudder for a change at least a proper rudder, instead of using keyboard keys , but they did an excellent job when tear-assing around the racetrack, whatever its configuration might be. Okay, this is an overstatement. And an honest to goodness sequential gear shift, the same type they use in CART racing wait’ll I review that! Now to show Greg Moore who the real Canadian driving star is. Just pretend you’ve sprung for an extra three games.

On the whole, however, once we got exl5500 EXL clamped to the desk which as mentioned was quite the operation due to the construction of the deskit performed well, as we expected from a CH product. The wheel’s mounting system is designed for desktops of all thicknesses, and includes clamps and suction cups to keep it solid. The Sidewinder Wheel also has the best clamping mechanism I’ve seen.


Okay, this is an overstatement. How could it be? Despite various sensitivity settings, I had a heck of a time getting used to the concept. You won’t miss them.

Racing Wheel has poducts buttons mounted on it, two on the front and two on the back, and you can configure them for shifting, accelerating, or braking. Just pretend you’ve sprung for an extra three games.


Of course, you may not get any work done Of course, it’s expensive enough that it should be! Virtual Pilot Proand the Pro Pedals, double as both flight yoke and steering wheel, so edl500 can fly and drive yourself silly.

Or shut off the exl5000 feedback if you want, though this seems like a waste. One thing missing from the Sidewinder is a sequential gearshift, and this is a shame. How about a desire prodicts “tilt” at windmills? That’s because this piece of two fisted excitement comes with a motion sensor built into ptoducts, so when it’s activated you can lean, twist, bob, and weave to your heart’s delight – and the machine passes fh body language on to the player you’re controlling.

There are also four buttons to use as you see fit, whether for shifting gears, changing views, or other functions. One of the big problems with driving and flying simulations has nothing to do with the games. Microsoft’s Sidewinder Force Feedback Wheel isn’t cheap – but it is one heck of a wheel. It’ll cost ’em, though: It’s a nifty idea, but easier said than done!

There are also connectors for game port or USB universal serial busboth of which worked fine. It’s the “no brainer” way to keep informed. The set is solid and feels as if it’ll be around for a while.

Sure, they do the job and give you a good feel for the game or simulation. The pedals are also well thought out and are mounted so that when the action gets furious, the base doesn’t jump up and bark your calves, as happens with at least one of the Sidewinder ‘s competitors. And an honest to goodness sequential gear shift, the same type they use in CART racing wait’ll I review that! And the elevator and aileron trim controls work well, too.



We would have liked to see a gear shift included as well, but you can’t have everything. Well then, you may want to try Microsoft’s new SideWinder “Freestyle Pro” Game Pad, a doohickey that not prroducts offers “virtually” unprecedented freedom of movement, but which helps eliminate calluses from your long suffering fingertips.

When you slam into a wall at mph, the wheel isn’t just going to jerk, it’s going dh protrude out of your back. Ever longed to get a little more “english” out of your game pad? This means you can’t left foot brake without the thing flipping up and barking your calves.

It’s a pretty innovative produchs, putting to good use the weaving and bobbing to which gamers are prone anyway, and Microsoft has done a good job of pulling, pushing, and bending it off.

We found they did an excellent job at giving a nice feel to the experience, and really enjoyed using them.

Besides the sensor which can be turned off, rendering the controller more conventionalyou get six programmable buttons, a pair of triggers and there’s even a throttle wheel mounted just out of reach of my thumb.
