Isn't it one of those 'macho' comparison things?

When I was a nipper, with my first car which was a Ford Classic registered in 1961, I put Radial tyres on, and my mate had an Anglia, a Ford Anglia which had Cross-ply tyres on, so my dick was bigger than his! Cool0044

Later as time went on, it was twin carburetors, or SU carbs and so on.

When I got my first car (fiesta), for a laugh I pinched aload of ford car badges, you know like LX, Ghia, Si etc etc, then stuck them all on the back of my car, just to take the piss really. Then I sold my car to my sister, and she went to the insurance company and said, can you insure me on a 1.6 Si, Lx, Ghia Turbo etc. As you can imagine the quote was through the roof. lmao. still laugh about that now...fooking noob.

Swapped G25 wheel for a Sparco 320mm Flat D Racing wheel with a Chillicoke adapter. Wish I'd changed before now, excellent feel and has made the experience in Sim Racing even better.

Adapter and larger paddles

How to video

Have done the same to mine back when we started the GT2 class, recommended to Nick as he was asking about getting the Fanatec wheel and I think having a larger whel on your G25/27 softens the FFB(not in a bad way) and gives you so much more control than stock wheel.
