damn that looks awesome, how much is this one and what do I need to attach it? can you map all the buttons which are on it?

Thanks 👍

That is just the Ferrari Add on wheel from Thrustmaster.

But i did put some extra money to it (around 180 euro) and added some other stickers on it (Overtake, MFD etc), put an Samsung S4 phone in a case and did change the shifters to magnet shifters. For me, the wheel is good this way and no futher tweaking needed for my taste.

See here the old and new shifters from 3DRAP.IT

what app is that on the phone? And which layout? I'm using dash panel but can't seem to find the perfect display info, yours looks really nice

That is SIM Dashboard app for Android.

The layout is my own made F1 dashboard 🙂 There are allot on the SIM Dashboard community

I recommend the Ferrari F1 wheel instead - the buttons are more easily accessible and it has the rotary dials for ERS and fuel. 

Have you tried both? What I don't like about the Ferrari wheel are the fake four dials in the middle. It looks a bit cheap to be honest.

When I first saw the F1 Ferrari Wheel I HAD to have it.  Most of the reviews I saw/ read didn’t go into the drivability detail like I hoped but talked more about the cool looks. 
 

300$ later as the wheel sits in the closet boxed waiting for me to list it for sale. 
 

Yes the wheel is beautiful and has tons of buttons. Half of which there was no need to program for any F1 game I’ve played. 
 

There were just a couple of issues I had with the Ferrari Wheel that I’m sure are subject to the user. 
 

When turning I found my thumbs inadvertently will change the settings on the left and right spindle knobs. I deprogrammed the knobs only to have the exposed spindles to now catch and slowly tear away at my gloves. 
 

Again, this is user subjective but the weight and balance of the wheel for me just wasn’t cutting it. I’ve come to now know the lighter the wheel the better pinpoint accuracy for me. Or using devils advocate, the ergonomics of the custom carbon fiber wheel just feels so much better even with less buttons. 
 

So in closing I went back to my carbon fiber T300 ( picture below ) it feels better in the hand is less busy, only using the buttons I need means less fumbling and remembering buttons ( even with muscle memory ) while concentrating more on the races.93F0FEA0-4708-4074-9C05-AF0225C9ABFC.thumb.jpeg.a6aa79524688297d45cfc045e4de4b44.jpeg44B22757-FB39-4B51-BD27-EC7061E49B8D.thumb.jpeg.29aedf78af6a651424f47a3e4ded6a45.jpeg

Hi 

have the ferrar f1 since two days and very mixed emotions.

looks great but have much worse times than with the normal the Open wheel . 
Use it with ts-xw base 

Today changed back to open wheel did. four 5 lap races and was back on my old times .

So will return the Ferrari wheel / eventhough it looks great and stay with the open wheel /

In my opinion definitely go for the open wheel add on. Not the ferrari f1 wheel.
Ive used both. This is what i think
- Ferrari F1 feels to plastic
- Ferrari F1 is quite heavy compared to the open wheel. So on the open wheel you can feel the force feedback way better.
- If you play on PS all the extra buttons have no further advantage imo. 
- OVerall built quality of the open wheel is way better. and its cheaper.

 

Only downside is you need to wear gloves on the open wheel otherwise youll ruin the alcantara. But for me, i already used gloves, its easily the best wheel out there for the t300 ecosystem.

i only now realized this post is quite old haha

The funny thing is: I just got it yesterday and I'm more than happy. I only did a few laps but I could already spot the plus in precision. It's heavier and bigger than I thought which is not a bad thing. The quality feels really good.

What's your button configuration for the open wheel? I'm not happy with mine yet.

Sorry only seen this just now.

10: DRS
3: ERS
4: Look behind
6: brings up the menu thing where you change fuel etc
5: Decrease fuel
9: Increase fuel

R3: Voice command

 

This is what i use on ps5.. 🙂 Let me know what you think.

It's a pity that you can't put the fuel on 7/13/8. 

Ah menn, so you really can't configure the twisty button. Damnn.. Thought I had to do something in the settings when connecting to a PC but seems like you can't use them (7/13/8) on PS4/PS5?

On Ps4/Ps5 you cant, because they are standard needed for activating the wheel on Playstation, the other one is the "Options" and the third one is for taking and or save the Picture/video.

What i use to use for Increase/decrease ERS and Fuel, were the rotary dials (Dpad up and down/left right). That works good if you use the Shortcuts buttons in the F1 game settings.

I have now the Ferrari SF1000 wheel and on that one you have more buttons/options. But i still use the rotary dials for ERS+/- and Fuel +/-

Just a question. Why do you use a rotary for ERS? You can't make much use of it in a race anyway since there's only 0 or 1. In practise you can use 0, 1 or 2 and in quali 0 or 2. Feels like a waste to use a rotary for that.

I use one rotary for mixture and the other for brake balance. I really don't see the need for anything dedicated for ERS so I change that with one of the P.O.Vs in the setup menu because the only time I ever change ERS manually is in quali when I do a cool down lap to collect energy.

Yes, totally agree with you, as i can only use ERS in the Free practise program, but i dont make brake bias adjustment at all, so that is why i did not map that to a specific button. 

Do you feel i can better use the Brake Bias? How will it help me? Any advice, is welcome. I only play career and with friends.

I don't use it all that much really, but when there's different weather, dry to wet or wet to dry, it can be really useful to change the brake bias when the conditions change. If it's an all dry or all wet race I really don't change it.
