    You ever notice how all too often, even the best gaming wheels feel too much like game controllers and not enough like actual steering wheels? The whole point of using a gaming wheel in racing games is to create a more realistic gaming experience. You might not be able to put on a full suit and feel like you're really playing your favorite adventure game, a la Lawnmower Man. But you can make playing your favorite racing sim/game feel more realistic with the use of a good wheel. And the more realistic that wheel feels in your grasp and its pedals feel under your feet, the more satisfied most serious gamers feel.

    Well the folks over at Guillemot/Thrustmaster, who have long made some great wheels and gaming controllers, have provided us with a gaming wheel that can help make the race gaming experience more complete, so long as you play games that properly support it (ah, but there's the rub). Thrusmaster's NASCAR Pro Force Feedback wheel helps up the ante not only for those gamers still trying to play racing games with gamepads, but even for those who own most of the wheels on the market. Its force feedback technology, of course, is part of what makes it such a good wheel; but its basic design is an important part of the equation, as well.
