Hello racers, I'm looking forward to buy pCars on PS4 and I also want a new wheel since my old Logitech is no longer usable. I don't want to spend 300 euros on the T300, so the only alternatives are the cheap T80 and T100. The prices are very similar, so I need help about which one to buy. I saw that the T80 hasn't got the force feedback, but it's not primary issue for me. Is the T100 really slightly better? Are they worth buying (I don't want something that may break in a few days)? Also, are the low turning radius (200 degrees for the T80, 270 for the T100) an issue using pCars (tight hairpins etc...) or not? Thanks in advance to everyone.
I'm considering buying the T300 because it has actual force feedback whereas the T100 only has bungie-cord resistance...and the T80 doesn't have anything. You say that force feedback isn't a major concern for you but I would suggest that if you want to experience the game fully i.e. attempt to authentically recreate the feeling or racing these cars, then force feedback would be a must.
If I do end up going for a cheaper option, which is a real possibility, then the T100 seems to be a decent alternative and that's pretty much because of the bungie-cord resistance so that you at least get the feeling of driving a car. For me, the T80 isn't even an option because I am looking at this as an investment of sorts. I am going to get a lot of use from it so I don't want the budget option.
Hope that helped
EDIT: ^^^ That was all nonsense lol...I corrected myself a few posts below.
No worries. I know next to nothing about the latest racing wheels, since I don't own any next-gen consoles. Sounds like that Thrustmaster T100 is a good compromise between its features and price.
I thought the same thing. Considering the price the T100 is the beat choice. I'll go for it. Thanks a lot to everyone who answered.
I want to make sure you don't take my word on it, I've never tested neither T80 or T100 wheels, I've only based my opinion on what I've read about them. All I know is the choices are very limited on PS4 right now. I'd encourage you to dig deep on user reviews, but I think you've already done that.
Also, make sure you have a good mounting solution. If you don't, it can make you lose your interest. I sold my first wheel set after few months, because I got bored to mount and dismount the wheel setup every time I wanted to play it. If you have a desk where you can drive comfortably and the setup can stay there 24/7, you should be fine. There are also wheel stands sold separately, I've played a few hours with a Wheel Stand Pro set, works really well but it has its cost, ofcourse.
Don't worry, I already checked lots of reviews on the net, I wanted to have some opinions from someone who bought those wheels. About the mounting no probs, I have a good playseat system which I used for GT5/6 on Ps3, will be back in action!
