Securing the wheel to a table is not a difficult task. The base has multiple suction cups, along with 2 clamp-like devices to make sure it stays in one place. This is followed by a locking mechanism to add that last piece of security. This thing will not move at all once it is attached to your desk. I had the wheel going at full force and my monitor was moving more than the wheelbase. The pedals are even easier to set up. Put them on the ground and you're good to go. The pedals however, tend to not stay in place if you have a carpeted floor. In anything but soft play the pedal structure will move about.
Plug it in. Plug it in.
Following the wiring fiasco, installation wasn't all too difficult to do, god bless USB. After inserting the wire, a prompt for drivers came up and everything went just dandy. The setup utilities for the wheel are easy to use and quite clear. I didn't really touch any of them because every game has settings of its own that let you adjust the amount of feedback. I doubt anybody will need to fiddle with these other than to make sure all the buttons work.
One setting that I did change was the "Default Spring Setting." This setting controls how fast the wheel recenters itself after being rotated. If it is off, the wheel will remain at the position it was last turned to. In real cars that are in motion, the wheel will recenter after being turned (if they have power steering). A quick check determined that the sluggish behaviorI was experiencing was because of the low default setting of 15%. I promptly tripled this and was pleasantly satisfied with the quick return. This setting is very crucial to driving with any accuracy at all. Unless you learned all your driving skills on crappy computer wheels, you should be used to the wheel sliding back to its original position as you come out of a turn. And if you aren't, I have no clue what kind of car you drive.
The rest of the setup disc contains some demos for software that is, shall we say, outdated. The two demos included are of racing games that don't support the racing wheel in question to its fullest extent. A sheer stroke of genius, I think you will agree. But I figure that most of the people buying this setup already own driving games.
