Simraceway SRW-S1 Racing Controller Now Available for Speed Freaks

by Conner Flynn

Do you feel the need for speed? SteelSeries hears ya and they can help. The Simraceway SRW-S1 racing wheel is now available for all of your racing/bank heist/running people over needs.

The motion-sensor based wheel aims to replace more expensive and bulky designs by putting everything into one streamlined form. However that just makes this offering kind of weird. For instance, the pedals are built into the back of the controller. WTF? In that case, why not just have buttons there?

Speaking of buttons, you get about 20 of them, three dials and a d-pad, so you have plenty to keep you busy. The company claims that the wheel will work with most popular PC racing games right out of the box.

    They’re not buttons because in advanced racing games having the ability to precisely control braking force and throttle is extremely important.

    I’m curious how well this would actually work. Turning the dials and stuff during a race might be a pain in the ass since you don’t have anything to support the wheel (the shaft it’s normally attached to) as you take one hand off to reach.
