The assembly has to do each one

Solder cables and others but it is very simple

All parts are bought on ebay less controller board that is from a friend

The motor support and the kit to put the steering wheel and the box where the electronica goes
it will taste each

I'm waiting for this manufactured controller
 
And to mount everything

looks very good nice wheel too like the setup  :)

The steering wheel is osp simracing

Spanish guys who work very well

Quality price I think is the best

You can buy only the button and cam kit

And you put the steering wheel that you like
Or all complete

Full I think it's 300 eur

Hi after a couple of races just to make sure it was not a one off this wheel has made so much difference in accuracy and feel.
 On Mills coming in to that nightmare tightening sweeper into the 180 deg turn.  i could feel when wheels were slightly loosing traction
and when the car was getting unbalanced
I have it set fairly low with 60% out of game and .50 in game
Catching slides and holding them is easier. where i would get away with 1 out of 10. now its 9 out of 10 :)
So very happy bunny  ;D
I Knew it would be good did not think it would have transformed the experience so much though :)

I was going to ask you today for your verdicts so far.  I have been seeing more and more people commenting on their equipment regarding the improvements it makes in there racing, consistency and so lap times.

One of the guys on the WFG said he got VR recently and he reckoned it made a 0.2s difference per lap on that 1 minute lap time track they just raced, which is huge and basically is what go him into finals.

Now I have to start saving up!

That definitely sounds worth the money. VR is good for corner apex and traffic but it doesn't give you any more "feel". Your FFB sounds like it's definitely helping. Boy, this can really become an expensive hobby!

No kidding. But, considering I am spending money on a good, clean, fun hobby, It is more easy to explain to the missus the expenditure over say, going to the bar 5 nights a week.

Yep i don't drink so plus plus. I spend so much time on it so well justified  ;D plus i only wanted to do this once.
 followed an OSW thread for few years. So bar the Bodnar which is first direct drive i saw on web. OSW was way to go
Accuforce looked very nice too when announced too but wanted EU or UK and was very new

I amsure there will be cheaper options as kits are developed using different servo motors and 700-800 kit would be nice to fit in middle of T500/Fanatec and Midge based OSW  ;D

Very happy glad i spent so long deciding :)
while looking at all other options :)
