In terms of performance, the Simucube 2 Pro delivers. The wheel’s force feedback is smooth and realistic, allowing you to feel every bump and ripple on the track as you drive. The force feedback strength can be easily adjusted to your liking, allowing you to customize the amount of force the wheel applies to your hands as you drive. But mort important of all, the Simucube 2 Pro force feedback feels very fast and responsive, making it so much easier to catch a slide, even a big one. I went back to the old Fanatec V2.5 to see and although it didn’t make me faster, but it was so much easier to catch a slide and be a more consistent on the Simucube.
Compared to other direct drives, it felt a little more sharp, and strangely, when the wheelbase is off, the motion is fluid, no small increments due to the magnetic fields in the motor. This has little to no effect when the direct drive wheelbases are on, but could it explain the sharpness feel to the Simucube 2 Pro?
The wheel’s sensitivity can also be adjusted to your preference, allowing for quick reactions or a more controlled driving experience. The sensitivity determines how sensitive the wheel is to your inputs, and can be set to a higher value for quicker reactions or a lower value for a more controlled driving experience. Overall, the Simucube 2 Pro offers a high level of customization, allowing you to tailor the wheel to your specific racing style.
Will it make you faster? Not by much, but you will have more fun and be more consistent. Would I recommend it? Yes, and I would buy it again.
