Any idea if it has haptic feedback?
I also wonder if it has compatibility with American Truck Simulator on PC.

I did not realize Mario Kart required simulation style racing wheels. I mean it’s cool, but is it necessary for Mario Kart?

Paddle Shifters is what separates the pros from the perpetual blue shelled.

Not sure on the haptic feedback but i just saw that it comes with a 10ft usb cable that is compatible with PC's

I went and looked for reviews or anything on this and they all pretty much say the same thing, it's overkill for Mario Kart. I was super interested in the wheel at first but after looking into it further, it looks like unless you're going hard into the racing games, it's pretty much just a novelty. The price is definitely alluring as it is a fraction of other types of racing wheels.

Price-wise, looks like the MSRP was $99.99 USD when it came out. Consulted the camels and it said that the lowest price was $125.06 7 months ago, so this is pretty close. IMO this post is more of a "sweet! It's in stock" more than it is a deal. Still good though.

Thanks anyways OP! Upvoted

Haptic feedback? You mean force feedback? No, it won't have FFB. FFB wheels are a pretty big step up in price.

From the reviews, the wheel works on PC and will work with PC games including American Truck Simulator. However, this wheel only has 270 degrees of rotation, while ATS/ETS is programmed to work with wheels with 900 degrees of rotation... so that means if you use this wheel, it won't be one-to-one with the steering wheel in the game. For everyone one degree you turn with this wheel, in the game the steering wheel will turn 3.33 degrees.

I've read that it's possible to tweak the settings in the game to make it difference not as bad, but it won't be one-to-one. Keep in mind that 270 degrees of rotation means the total rotation of the steering wheel... which means the wheel will only turn 135 degrees in either direction so it won't even allow a full hand-over-hand rotation.

If you want something with FFB and 900 to 1080 degrees of rotation you're looking to stepping up to at least a Thrustmaster T150/TMX or Logitech G29 or G920 and those are in the ~$300-400 price categories (cheaper on sale).

Thrustmaster or Logitech wheels... on sale? That almost never happens anymore! Heck they are backorder for months with the Covid.

The reviews that mention Truck simulator seem to be for the PS4 version of the wheel.

It'd be cool if it works on PC and you can use it with an emulated Mario Kart Arcade GP. But even then a very niche product, and there's way better PC wheels.
