Ah, and here's me having all assists off because that's how I Silvered/Golded all the 1st round of seasonals.

I'll try that later today, thanks.

If you havent done the NASCAR Nurbrugring event yet youll probably need to use the assists too.

I try not to use assists as much as possible but when they force you to use tires that dont work well with a car while using a controller I will turn on what is needed.

when will this Thrustmaster wheel be available to purchase? and is it actually better than the G27?
i am going to need to purchase a wheel for this game. i am assuming there are some things you can't do with just a controller. i can't get gold on a lot of the license tests, and i am assuming it is because i don't have a wheel. is this correct? some of them just seem impossible with the DS3.

The wheel will be available tomorrow from Amazon and Frys. Dont know of any reviews to know if people say its better then the G27.

I have gold on most of the license tests with a controller so Im sure its possible to gold them all but it would be easier to do with a wheel with the extra car control you can get from them.

There are some good tunes in GT5, but I've made my own replay tracklist. Music is off during races.

I am only (currently) using the DS3 and I do feel it handicaps you somewhat, but it's not something that can't be overcome. My current license results are 33 Gold, 7 Silver, and 0 Bronze, and I've golded every one of the Seasonal Events... so success with a DS3 isn't outside the realm of possibility.

At $600, I hope it is better! Otherwise they won't sell any.

There's definitely a market for it in the mid-upper tier (whereas the G27 is the mid-lower tier). Still nowhere near some of the really expensive top shelf wheels like ECCI.

It will be far better than the G27 for a PS3/GT5 specific setup with the face buttons, etc all pre-mapped, as well as full compatibility and support from PD. Until there are PC drivers, etc it might be behind the G27 in that regard.

The pedals are where it's really set apart from the G27 in that you can shift from "F1" or "Rally" styles without voiding your warranty (important if you have a dedicated cockpit setup) as some of the common mods go.

If some of the rumors like the wheel being removable/replacable and the optional gated shifter including an E-brake, it could well be the elite wheel for the masses.

If you golded the Eiger TT in the Gran Tour with a DS3, then you sir have my respect. In my opinion it is the 3rd hardest event in the game behind Vettel's Nurburg GP and Suzuka. And I only need 5 more Golds for the trophy. 4 of them are endurance races.

I don't ever see it happening. I'm not really close to the gold time, and it's one of my least-favorite tracks in the game, so I don't see myself going back to it.

I have not even opened my Logitech G27 since GT5 still does not support it. Prices on ebay are sky high and with the Thrustmaster T500RS out, will it ever get support? Personally, $500 is a little steep for me for a wheel.

I got this wheel:

Used it once. It was like wrestling and I could not get the car to go as fast as it normally does. And so it sits.

I'm using a DFGT now, and while i'm mostly satisfied with the wheel, have never really been satisfied with the pedals (and would prefer a gated shifter). I'm willing to pay if the quality is there, so am watching this new one with great interest.

Wait, what do you mean GT5 doesn't support it? Can you stick shift, use the clutch, and paddle shift? That's all I care about. The LED's on the wheel don't matter much.

When I read your origional response I read Special Events, not Seasonal like you wrote. My bad.

I'm going for Platinum so I had to get Gold on Eiger. At lease it's out of the way for me now. Getting gold on Vettel is more for bragging rights than anything.

Maybe he means you cannot map buttons? I don't know because I don't have it. Just a guess.

The pedals are my only complaint about the DFGT. I have to play with socks only. Shoes or slippers and I cannot feel then. Bare foot and they stick to you.

Yeah I'm wondering what doesn't work because the G27 and G25 are sold out everywhere solely because of GT5.

I know I would consider a Logitech alternative to the DFGT that included the G27 shifter and pedals with the existing DFGT... But definitely want the Playstation buttons.

Can you just use the wheel for driving and then for all menu, setting up races etc just use a regular dual shock?
