    Since I bought a GC for my son last summer I figured I'd use it too since I didn't want to buy another console like an XBox until I got my HDTV.

    I had been waiting for a wheel forever. There were some that came out like the multi-console MC2 but I decided to pass. I had heard that Logitech was making one but it had been months and no news so I stopped looking.

    A couple of weeks ago I was on the Logitech site for another reason and saw that they had released the wheel and separate set of peddles. I looked everywhere for it and couldn't find it stocked online or in store anywhere until I found the Compusmart website here in Canada.

    I ordered the wheel and the peddles for $69.99 and $39.99 respectively. (In Canadian Dolars) And, I bought Nascar Thunder 2003 and Need for Speed:Hot Pursuit 2 really cheap off of Futureshop.

    The wheel is pretty good. The forcefeedback works quite well and the peddles are good. The lap thingy they give you to hook the wheel on isn't very good since it slips so I hooked it onto a tray table.

    NFS takes some getting used to but Nascar Thunder is pretty easy with the ovals and super speedways. THere is a ton of feedback on the high bank ovals.

    So overall, if you want a forcefeedback wheel for Nintendo I think this is the only one so its lucky that its pretty good.

    Is it true feedback or vibration? Has Nintendo documented which games are programmed for racing feedback?

    Michael, it is true forcefeedback and not just the vibration. The resistance it creates pushes you back quite a bit on the high bank ovals of Nascar Thunder.

    The games that have Force Feedback presently are:

    4x4 Evolution™ 2 by Terminal Reality
    NASCAR Thunder 2003 by Electronic Arts
    Need For Speed™: Hot Pursuit 2 by Electronic Arts
    Hot Wheels™: Velocity X by THQ
    NASCAR® Dirt to Daytona by Infogrames
    PRO RALLY® 2002 by Ubi Soft Entertainment

    Not a huge list but not bad. Hopefully more games will come out but we'll see.

    Patrick
