    Get a steering wheel!

    Just picked up a Microsoft SideWinder Force-Feedback USB wheel off Ebay for $40-

    This thing is sooooo much better than the game pad. Makes the game waaay more enjoyable. So much more control! :bow: I know Rene has one...Does anyone else play with a steering wheel? I'll never play a racing/driving game with a game pad again. :D

    Having a wheel and pedals makes it so much more fun, and the amount of control you have is way better! :waytogo: I find a lot of climbs where partial throttle allows the truck to make it...plus it just feels more natural.

    Shiiit....You think I give a damn about cables behind my desk that I almost never have to look at? Why would I? I could care less. :rolleyes: :haha:


    Anyways, whats a good map similar to IRC? I've tried alot of the others that people mention, but I always go back to IRC. It has the best trails. Anything else like it?
