      What about input latency? Is it as immediate as the Xbone controller, or can you see the in-game wheel turn noticeably slower than you the physical wheel?

      Does the wheel's force-feedback make it easier for you to control over-steers with twitchy RWD cars?

      What about the pedals? Do they have any vibration to give feedback on ABS kicking in on hard braking, or traction-loss during acceleration or cornering?

        No vibration on the pedals. I can confirm this as my friend has a set.

        Nobody has made FFB pedals yet to my knowledge., though that would be fucking rad. People usually install brake mods (stronger springs) to give the pedal more resistance. Or they find a way to put a tennis ball in there.

          Fanatec clubsports have had it for years. I just haven't found a game that uses it.

            I think the only one I know for sure that can use it is iRacing. I think assetto corsa can use it but that's probably the extent of it.

      For PC, just buy a G27. The G920 is $460 (with the shifter) and it has basically the same internals as the G27 which costs $250. Having the buttons on the rim doesn't justify the price difference when it's nearly the same hardware.

      Logitech has been using the same platform for a decade and increasing the price each time.

      maybe they could get someone that knows how to drive to review the wheel? :)

        Yeah but where can we find one of those this late in September?

      As a Belgian who drives around the streets of Belgium with his stick shift car (Murican automatic cars are weird), I demand to be sent a G920 for review.

      Also Forza 6.

      And an Xbox One.

      Great review. One thing I would have liked to hear about is if it's comfortable to have in your lap. I don't want to move my desk in front of my tv.
