    My wife wants a "Racing Wheel" controller for our recently purchased XBOX.
    She plays Project Gotham Racing - and we'll also be picking up some various Nascar games later this year - I'm not really into racing that much (even though I'm from Indianapolis [​IMG] ) but we do like to race!
    Will the Mad Catz MC2 Racing Wheel be sufficient enough? Or is there a better one out there that we need to take a look at?
    Here is the Mad Cats version:

    There is also a Thrustmaster racing wheel for the xbox. I saw it at my local EB for $90 CDN. I'm waiting for more reviews on it to show up before I get one. I'd especially like to find a review comparing the madcatz to this one.
    NASCAR Pro Victory Wheel (MSRP $60 US).
    Some reviews I found:

    Hmmm, sounds like PGR and the Thrustmaster wheel don't work too well together (not too responsive in PGR). I just hope more reviews pour in...I'm itching for a wheel to go with PGR.

    I picked up the Mad Catz MC2 wheel for Project Gotham and I really like it although I dont have any others to compare it against.

    I got the Mad Catz wheel as well. Picked it up this past weekend for use in EA's Nascar 2002. It's the first wheel I've ever bought for a console or computer and it feels quite solid, plus it has a shifter which the thrust master does not.

    Overall, I am pleased with it.
