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!

Try pouring a 8oz bottle of regular alcohol into the gas tank, into about a 1/4 tank of fuel and take out on the high way and open it up ( floor the gas pedal and open up the pistons and let the alcohol clean the heads and this probably will solve your problem!

Same problem. I called Thrustmaster yesterday and they said that they're working with Nascar to fix the problem. They couldn't give me any guarantees that it would be fixed, though.

Well, the game has to first be compatable for the MAD CaTz Steering Wheel. The Mad CaTz Steering Wheel is compatable with almost any racing game. Instead Of Using the Pedal for the game, he can use the X button that is ON the Steering wheel.

My sons wants get a Logitech GT steering wheel to use on PC games - will it work without using the pedals ? He needs hand controls only as he is in a wheelchair and doesnt have use of his legs. Thanks Liz


I'm not sure if it will function without the pedals being connected. However, Most PC games allow you to customize controls. i.e. You will be able to set gas and brake to the buttons on the wheel. So the pedals will not be nessessary. So to answer your question, yes, but it depends on the game, not the steering wheel itself.

p.s. The above only applies if we are talking about PC games. Without the pedals, You will lose two methods of input which may need to be assigned elsewhere (like a keyboard). Consoles like the PS2 will not have this option.

How do i setup the g25 to my ps3


i have a g25 wheel on my ps3 it is simply plug and play.
if you struggle with buttons check this out it has all the functions:
Buttons for the G25 wheel and PS3

Top 4 The Black ones
Top-triangle-cancel-reverse(gear to back car up)
Left-square-cancel
Right-circle-E_brake
Bottom-X-enter You can also use the gas pedal for enter

Bottom 4 buttons The Red ones
Far left-no function
Second button-Change view
Third button-Pause-quick exit replay at the end of race-This button will also speed up the winnings (to keep from waiting with the cup spinning around so you can get back to racing)
Fourth button-best race line for license test

Buttons on wheel

Left-look back (default)
Right-nitro (default)
I change these two buttons around myself so I have the nitro on the left.

D-pad-same as the controller up,down,left,right. For menue use.
Also for (during race)
Look back-bottom pad
Look left-left pad
Look right-right pad

To change any of the button functions use the DFP settings in the options menue.
I have not used the wheel in photo mode. The only thing you can't do with the wheel is "exit" game. I also never have my controller on during gameplay I only turn it on to exit the game. If anyone needs anymore help with this wheel give me a shout-back and I'll try my best to help.
One last thing make sure your wheel is in the far left port(port 1) or port 3
