How Can i race with out the pedals?? i dnt have pedals only the streel wheel. and i wanna race with jst the wheel and using the buttons as a gas n brake
I too, am pedal-less; so here's how I do it: I assign the left paddle shifter to the brake pedal/reverse function, and the right paddle shifter to the accelerate/gas pedal function.Of course, if you are a racer who loves shifting gears with the paddles (and who doesn't?) you'll obviously have to make a choice. I, personally, have no problem with this trade-off. But here's the deal with Saitek: I used to have the R100 - which, if memory serves, did not sell with pedals - and it worked great as described above. However, because I was pretty hard on the gas, it didn't take long to break the gas paddle right off! I found the R440 wheel not long ago at Goodwill, but since it has the same plastic paddles - albeit, a bit larger and wider - I was reluctant to buy it. Although it lacked the pedals, as well as the part that secures it to the desk, it was only $9.00! Did I mention it didn't have a power supply, either? :O
Fortunately, I am able to snug it down on my desk with a pair of two-and-a-half inch "C" clamps. The power problem almost rendered it worthless, though; what with the force feedback and all. I had no idea at the time it was going to need so much juice. If I would've looked at the label.... Hey, nine bucks! Who bothers with labels! As luck would have it, I had an old Visiontek flatbed scanner, that bit the dust years ago, so I'm using the p.s. from it. 24v 18w. I am extremely careful, not to jam the right paddle the way I did with the R100. It's holding up remarkably well - and despite all it's missing stuff, it hasn't got a scratch on it and is precise as heck!
