LOGITECH MOMO RACING WHEEL DRIVER
By Gerry Block Back in the day, Logitech was a stogy old company that made utilitarian mice and keyboards. As years passed, Logitech began to court the gamers rather than the suits, and has matured into one of the premier manufactures of gaming controllers and peripherals across all the major platforms.
Racing wheels have progressed over time from gimmicks to serious bits of tech, and Logitech has been there through it all. When the big PS2 vs. Xbox showdown between Gran Turismo 4 and Forza Motorsports went down a year back, it was Logitech's GT4 licensed Driving Force Pro wheel that really gave the PS2 the edge, which simultaneously vaulted Logitech up several notches in the minds of racing-sim aficionados. If it gives you chills, don't worry. It's MOMO, not mono. While the internals are all Logitech, the wheel design itself was licensed Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel MOMO, the auto-racing development house that developed the now iconic Ferrari F1 steering wheel design.

Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel Though the Logitech MOMO doesn't Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel the LCD and traction control switches Michael Schumacher manipulates so well, the wheel is otherwise quite similar to what you've seen in his cockpit, with bright red buttons and characteristic non-circular lower portion of the wheel. In use, the MOMO feels like it could have been torn right out of an open-wheeled racer. The entire perimeter is wrapped in a very grippy leather-textured rubber that seems to exert an almost magnetic attraction to one's hands. The wheel is also quite thick, a major sticking point for real race car drivers, which makes it feel quite significant in hand.
The paddle shifters are large and mounted on the stalk of the wheel, a major improvement over the Driving Force Pro's tiny tabs. A Tiptronics style shift knob is also present, and, unlike most other wheels, can be mounted on the left or right side, incase you are a lefty or a real stickler for realism when you are simulating a JDM car. The MOMO wheel also uses a three point mounting system, an improvement over the Driving Force Pro's two, which makes even difficult mounting positions like desks that curve down at the edge readily usable. The plastic pedals are mounted on a large plastic base, and have a good degree of spring loaded resistance. The base itself has rubber feet for hard floors as well as a bar of small teeth that can be flipped down to dig into carpet. Not too many other manufactures make use of the carpet teeth, which is a shame, as they make a world of difference over simple rubber feet if you are playing on a carpet.
Logitech also bundles a software Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel that auto detects installed driving games and allows a user to superimpose button layouts upon them, saving a lot of unnecessary configuration hassle.
If you've never used a premium force-feedback wheel with a game that has proper support, you're seriously missing out. It's really an entirely different experience than playing with a keyboard or gamepad. The wheel doesn't just try to resist your inputs; rather, it takes on the physical loads present in a heavy race car hurtling down a track. Come out of a tight corner and the wheel transitions from a slight pull away from the apex, to a moment of no resistance as the car drifts out of the turn, to a solid snap back as the tires regain traction. Get rear ended at speed and the resistance will roll from side to side, corresponding directly to the car's body roll as you struggle to regain control.
Put a wheel off the track and a vibration shakes the wheel, go way off the track at speed and the wheel will jerk around with the bumps and crashes. Go airborne and all resistance will fade away, land, and the wheel will jerk severely to one side Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel the other.

The addition of a premium Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel wheel like the MOMO to a solid racing simulator adds a degree of increased difficulty at the same time as a massively improved sense of being in-tune with your race car. A properly simulated F1 car is un-drivable with a keyboard or gamepad, as it will spin out and lose traction in an apparently arbitrary fashion.
Use a proper racing wheel, however, it the experience becomes a finger-tip sensitivity test of responding to what you feel through the wheel to keep the car on the razor's edge. The force Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel is subtle, differing in strength between situations and between different cars. Questions about your Logitech® MOMO® Racing Force Feedback Wheel?
