Fanatec’s F1 is compatible with all PlayStation 4 games, and the two vibration motors are controlled through the wheel tuning menu and Fanatec Software Development Kit. The RPM of the motor and the optimal shifting point are indicated by a Revolution LED bar.
Developed by VRS, the VRS DirectForce Pro is a graphics card with a high performance.
The DirectForce Pro wheel base from VRS, which incorporates direct-drive technology, is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a new Racing game wheel. Among other things, it includes a mounting bracket and the VRS logo, in addition to a brand-new hub. Designed specifically for the DFP, it is an all-in-one control unit that includes a 400W Mean Well power supply that was custom-built. Sim racers will undoubtedly be impressed by the sleek design and high price tag of this racing game, which is available now.
