    I have just got the steering wheel for the 360! my question is this. Should the wheel feel as loose as it does or is it something to do with the drivers which I think havent loaded onto the 360! any help greatly accepted cos right at this moment it feels like £90 down the pan...........

    How do you mean? when it is not connected it is very easy to turn but once connected to the console it is a lot harder to turn for me anyway

    As far as im aware the force feedback only works while the wheel is plugged in to the mains.

    Firstly the manual says that when you insert the disc in, a message appears that the installation is complete...No message appeared. But i've been told all it is is an update to support the wheel which was included in the last dashboard update. The disc is only for those without internet connection. So that is why a message won't appear. Also another limey is right, the wheel needs to be plugged into the mains for forcefeedback, the batteries are only for rumble, so the wheel will be loose and just rumble the same as the controller would. Do you have it plugged in. Also remove batteries before pluggin mains unless it is a battery from the play n charge kit as the wheel recharges it.

    Also i wonder whether there will be an update to adjust forcefeedback etc or whether it will just be specific game options. I'd love more forcefeedback, until my wrists break i won't be happy ;)

    I knew there was something that had to be done to get the wheel to work fully.
