RICMOTECH RealGear Wheel/Paddle upgrade for G-27
Once upon a time I owned a Momo Red and it's probably still lying around in a box somewhere in the knee wall. However, back in the day, FFB support wasn't what it is today and I eventually purchased a non-FFB ECCI Trackstar 6000. It is a fantastic piece of equipment and has served me well for more than a decade, but it's limited wheel rotation was...well...limiting. Wanting a wheel with at least 900° of rotation and interested in dipping a toe back into FFB arena, I happened to get lucky when David decided to part with his old G-27.
I've only had the G-27 for a short time, but I'm really enamored with it. I love the added rotation and the more I play with the FFB, the more I like it. However, I'm not totally in love with the dimensions of the actual wheel. At only 270mm, it just felt too small and it is quite a bit smaller than the 320mm Grant wheel on my ECCI. Plus, it simply didn't look the part. This is one of my biggest complaints about most modern FFB offerings. They simply aren't aesthetically pleasing to me and it is what ultimately led me to looking into alternatives.
