Hey all :)

I've probably been forgotten since I've been away from Forza for quite some time lol.
Been watching some videos and realised I miss drifting a lot. :(
So I've been thinking about getting back into it, but I would need a wheel because I'm hopeless on controller.
Any recommendations? Don't have a clue about these new gen wheels, but I wouldn't like to spend too much money on one.

Also are many people getting FM6?
I'm thinking about pre-ordering it but was wondering who's gonna get it and just general opinions about it.

Ty.

Thrustmster Tx would be best for your buck. You can talk to your bud Xerox and he will tell you about the wheel. The Logitech wheel is a plan B. Im getting FM6 regardless because I'm a comp organizer. The game looks like a 5.5 to 6 out of 10. The game has new features that will be good, and some that has been left out that should be in.

Yeah I'm thinking of doing the same, except I haven't moved to new gen yet. I might buy a second hand Thrustmaster (probably the best option, not too expensive) and buy FM6 if it gets good reviews for drifting from everyone here. I'd recommend doing the same.

Yeah, I feel that. Hell, I've set the MS wheel back up and am still just hoping public lobbies trying to find people who still drift. Would be pretty cool to see more people come back for FM6 if it's decent.

Both of you guys should come back, think about the 24 player lobbies, but yeah as Dai said, TX is best way to go, but cant comment on the Logitech G920, but might be good.

I had a wheel at the start of FM5, but it only lasted for 6 months. After that I was back to the controller. I did pick up a G27 for my PC though, as I bought a ton of racing sims on their while I had the TX wheel.

The drifting in FM5 with the TX wheel was awesome, and a lot of fun to boot. Plus, with me been a racer in Forza also, I had a lot of fun racing with it as well. If Thrustmaster have resolved the reliability issues with the TX wheel, then it is worth a definite buy. But you only get a 2 pedal set with the normal TX model, and no H-pattern shifter. There is the new TX servo base, which comes with nothing. You have to buy the wheel rim you want, and the pedals you want, which is either the T3PA or Pro versions. Then the shifter on top of that.

As for the new logitech wheel, if it is anything like the G27, then it will be worth a buy. I drift all the time in Assetto Corsa, and it is an awesome wheel. The new G920 comes with a 3 pedal set (Identical to the G27's, but with a stiffer brake), but the shifter has to be bought separately. The G29 PS4 version seems to work with the G27's shifter though, so the G920 X1 version might also.

I am stuck between buying back into Thrustmaster, or getting the Logitech wheel. At the moment I am leaning more towards Logitech. Thrustmaster support left me out in the cold when my TX wheel broke, and wouldn't repair/replace it. Thankfully Amazon gave me a full refund on the wheel, so I didn't lose my money.

The drifting in FM6 feels like FM4 to me, in fact so does the racing. I spent 7 hours with it on the 10th when the ultimate edition unlocked, and that is the conclusion I came to. I am on a controller atm, so I cant say what it is like on a wheel though.

I'll probably get the TX wheel cause Xerox and Spitsy have it and they say it's good. Although I don't really care about the shifter since I always used the padels in FM4.
Not fussed on having the best wheel or setup, just something that I can drift on lol. I can always upgrade later on.
Will most likely be a few months before I can get one though. :(

Yeah, I may do the same as I've only ever used the flappy paddles, but I'll wait and see. It's good to know that FM6 seems to be taking a step forward and feels a bit more like FM4. Cheers for the info.
