No Quick Release
One thing we all were expecting in this new release was the addition of interchangeable rims yet this did not happen to our surprise, they continue using different sim racing wheels for the type of console, Why just not add a quick release? Not sure but a missing critical point for loyal Logitech users.

REQUIREMENTS (PLAYSTATION 4)
- PlayStation 4 system

- 150 MB of available hard disk space

Building on that, the G923 adds some suitable refinements on the Force feedback, the new TRUEFORCE force feedback system makes driving even more realistic. But truth be told not too many technical changes were made, the more outstanding is the feature called TrueForce something completely “new” sorts like mechanical vibration and feedback that you would get when the whole chassis is vibrating from the engine and tires, all of it translates thought the steering wheel. It does that by using games physics and audio engine to interpret and provide additional information in real-time.
BUT, It can be used only in a few games right now, Asseto Corsa, GT Sport, and Drid, That’s all my friend, you can´t use this new improvement in other sim racing games, and to be honest with you, even if you are using one of this titles, Trueforce is something that you might not even notice anyway.
This new racing wheel comes with a:
- Rotation: 900 degrees lock-to-lock
- Hall-effect steering sensor
- Dual-Motor Force Feedback with TRUEFORCE

Compare with the previous generation G920/G29 design the new G923 looks almost identical to it predecessors, Don’t know if it is a smart move from Logitech or not, but it seems they took most of their time in making in-side improvements like the new Force Feedback technology TrueForce.
The G923’s brake pedal is, however, considerably better than its predecessors, there is more pedal travel which helps with muscle memory and precise braking, the feeling is not as precise as Fanatec Clubsport pedals V3, but they are Ok.
The main advantage of the Fanatec CSL DD is that it has the direct drive technology, slightly higher torque (5Nm vs 2.1), and a nicer steering wheel. This comes at a cost of 150-200$/€ more
