Final Analyze

For a very specific simracing niche, this rim was made for oval racing in mind, not for nothing is an officially licensed NASCAR steering wheel, if you are a die-hard enthusiast of titles like iRacing, factor, project cars then this steering wheel is for you,  If you are planning to acquire a new steering wheel for oval racing this is the way to go, take in place that you need a compatible Fanatec sim-base to make this works for you.

For further, this Clubsport steering wheel is compatible with PC, PS4, and Xbox One, including the brand new Series X, the materials are luxurious and durable, in the game the level of immersion that you get is out of this world, also has a great level of customization with integrated buttons on top of the universal hub or additional buttons wherever you want. From my own experience I think is money well spent.
