MOZA R5 Bundle Review
MOZA Racing is one of those brands that is actually growing up very well, they surprised the market a few days ago with the announcement of a bundled product, which is the first of its kind in the brand’s catalog.
The MOZA DD R5 got 5.5 Nm of torque—which means that you can feel every last bit of force your car exerts on the track, and it feels as though you’re really driving. It also features an airplane-grade aluminum base construction, ensuring the product will last a very long time.
Covered in hand-stitch leather for a comfortable and quality feeling, and made in aluminum alloy, the ES Steering Wheel will make driving feel just as does fancy real cars in real life — the 22 programmable buttons, in addition with 2 shifter paddles are going to be the responsible from delivering the immense amount of control over the car.
This steering wheel brings from the factory 10 LED lamp beads that indicate the RPM, and every single aspect of the wheel is fully customizable via software.
The next big thing are the pedals, where the SR-P Lite Pedals take the stage. They have a high-strength steel construction with adjustable pedal spacing and pedal height, together with the hall sensor and the possibility to mount the pedals on a rig, cockpit, and even in an inverted position, making this a very capable pedal set even with the lack of a clutch.

Moza R5 Bundle Vs Fanatec Bundle
You might think it is very hard to find any decent rival for this bad boy, it’s very competitive price along with high standard quality, the Direct Drive technology, and the included table clamp, made this base a pretty good option for someone who wants to start in the sim racing world without break the bank.
But of course, we can compare the racing wheel with other great products, for example, if you add $100 more you can buy the Fanatec CSL DD Racing Wheel WRC (sold out right now) with 8Nm of power, the only downsides are they don’t include the pedals. Other than that, the CSL DD is a strong competition for the Moza R5, here is a more in-depth analysis.
