Promising New CHEAP Direct Drive wheel?

Post by The-DOG » Wed Dec 06, 2017 8:55 am

So i came across this thing and i have to say
if they can deliver it for that price it might be worth it to switch wheels sooner then i thought :think:

This complete set for under 400$. :eeek:

Sounds indeed too good to be true. And using a desk and chair on wheels is not a good sign of strength either. :lol:
Still a very interesting project, that deserves some attention.

Direct drive and load cell pedals will easily set you back double that amount.

PS We have our minions changing lightbulbs all day. :loll:

Yeah it does, but some things to point out in regards to the very low price.
The engine they use is a weak 1 at 10 nm of torque witch is about a fifth of most OSW/ DD wheels
but even with that and a few other points it's still a very good looking deal coming with a not
that bad version of a pedal set with loadcell.

I'll be keeping a eye on this to find out what spec's the whole thing has and such, so far it doesn look bad imo :think:

Looks like an interesting setup.

It's been in development for two years and will launch in February 2018, also the $388 price tag is an introductory price for early buyers once it is launched it will sell for $770 retail price. ;)

I can deal with the $770 price tag just fine if it's launched
but i want to know the spec's and see a trusted review on it
before i pull the trigger on a DD wheel.
my current wheel setup already cost more then my pc did lol

You might checkout these pedals. I doubt the wheelhub will be better than Thrustmaster.
Add to that the limited game support and cheap wheels.

Full metal built pedals with loadcell brakes and adjustable parts are just awesome for just 99$. Even if they are only 30kg load cells. :party:
