    Just random rant from a nerd. That wheel is so bad. I've seen cheap accelerometers with better performance. I know that wheel is so cheap and if i tried to make one with arduino and half decent accelerometer it'll cost more, including the case and all. But holy fuck, this thing sucks.

    I use the gyro sensor of a PS4 controller and it is very precise, I have many top 10 records in pc2 and reached 60 safety rating in ACC in about 10h. It is a really cheap solution but I'm pretty sure a good driver would have better result because of the faster respond time when you don't have to work against the FFB.

    My brother and I found out with Wii motion controls, it was actually more precise to tilt the controller so it was on its back in your hands, and instead lift either side instead of trying to use it like an actual wheel.
