After doing a lot of research and try it for myself it was clear how good is the Nascar steering wheel, with an average to good performance offers a realistic experience to the user but, is it worth it? To use it in Ps4 will be necessary to switch to a different steering wheel with PS button functionality in order to sign in or to change tuning menu settings, works if you already own a wheel and that’s a turn-off, is really annoying to switch wheels just for change something in the menu. If you really really are deeply in love with Nascar splurge in this but otherwise don’t do it.
