Enhance the F1 experience with the latest must-have products
DRIVING FORCE SHIFTER For use with G29 & G920 Driving Force Racing Wheels (PS4 & Xbox One) Price £44.99 www.logitechg.com
This add-on gear shifter is to accompany the G29 Driving Force wheel that was featured in last month’s ‘F1 Upgrades’ [F1 Racing, March]. While you can use the wheel’s paddle shifts to change gear, the bespoke shifter adds an extra dimension of realism for driving video games – particularly as the G29 kit comes with a clutch pedal.
The six-speed shifter (with reverse gear) is a natural extension of the wheel, with the same highquality design. Like the wheel it has secure, durable mounts to minimize movements during shifting.
We’d recommend this for games with high-performance road and sportscars, such as those in GT Sport, but for the very quick changes required for modern F1 machinery in F1 2017, then, you’re probably best sticking with paddle shifts. If you have the top-of-the-range G29 wheel, this is a perfect extension.
