    Sounds like this product is either never coming out, or it will end up in the same competitive price range as the AccuForce or sim.plicity offerings. Also, augury and some others have reasonable pricing on the stand-alone kits.

    For me, I suppose the big justifier is if the button panel and wheel are any good. I just picked up a wheel (motamec 27 Double D) and button panel (penguin rc) for a little under 400 and I could see something like this making the price tag totally worth it. The accuforce is 1k with a 50 dollar wheel and overpriced button plate, nicely discounted to a fair value when bundled.

    seems way to cheap for direct drive. Although I have never used a direct drive wheel I have seen the prices and they have all been up there I currently have a thrustmaster t300 with the alc wheel, is the direct drive wheels really that much better?

    Nobody ever got a wheel from this, and only a handful ever got the pedals (not me though)

    And yes, DD is absolutely worth it.

    Wow they said not to trust it. I didnt think it would be good either. there should be some kind of repayment when kick starters dont put out what they said. this is crazy. When you say the direct drive is worth it are you saying because of the strength of the wheel or the accuracy? the t300 has pretty good feedback and I think if anything was too much stronger it might make it hard to drive lol
