While the PC racing community is smaller than first person shooter community, PC racers are no less demanding when it comes to hardware and their desire for the best. As PC racing games are returning to the mainstream again, we can take advantage of force feedback steering wheels that were once only toys for the most dedicated racers. Today we’ll be looking at a unique upgrade for PC racing, Act-Labs’ exotic Clutch Performance Pedals and GPL USB Shifter.
The Act-Labs Shifter
Performance Clutch and Pedals
Most of you know Act-Labs as the distributors of func surface1080 mousepad and the inventors of the Force RS belt-driven force feedback steering wheel. In our earlier steering wheel round-up, we took a brief look at Act-Labs’ Clutch Performance Pedals and GPL USB Shifter as part of the larger Force RS System. These two racing game upgrades, however, are far more versatile products – they can be configured as independent USB devices for use with any steering wheel of your choice, regardless of the brand.
