Ferrari Themed Racing Cockpit: Good Idea, but Not Perfect

by Shane McGlaun

I have been playing racing games on my various game consoles since there were racing games to play. I remember my first racing game, Pole Position on the Atari 2600. I even had one of those pads like you used for Pong as the steering wheel.

As I got older, and racing games got better I started to use racing wheels for my driving game fetish. I typically play with a crazy expensive Logitech racing wheel with its own shifter, clutch, and force feedback and it’s fantastic. The problem is finding a place to attach the thing since the coffee table is too low and using the wheel in my lap is not good.

Thrustmaster has unveiled a new wireless racing rig called the Ferrari Wireless GT cockpit 430 Scuderia Edition. Basically, it’s a racing wheel on an articulating, weighted frame – with pedals in the base. You can adjust the fame for kids and adults to enjoy. The thing uses wireless connectivity for the PC and the PS3, which makes it extra handy. The wheel is modeled after the real wheel from the 430 Scuderia car.

The downside here are the lack of a gated shifter, clutch pedal, and force feedback. Man, if it had all those things it would be perfect. The cockpit will sell for about $270 (USD).
