So I used to use a Famatec formula wheel on a DD1, it’s a phenomenal wheel but the small size bothered me since the day I got it. It’s fine for the racing open wheelers, but since I mainly race GT cars I wanted something bigger. I already had a Universal Hub lying around so I just needed a rim.
After a lot of research I decided to go for the R305, and oh boy I’m glad I did. In combination with the Universal hub and the advanced paddle module from Fanatec it feels very premium.
The size is absolutely perfect and feels great in the hand, this is honestly the most comfortable rim I’ve had.
At first I was a bit worried about the rubber grips feeling a bit cheap but they feel really high quality, perfect balance between softness and hardness, although I do wish there was an option to get it with alcantara, suede or leather.
Shipping went smoothly as well, it arrived here in the Netherlands in a bit more than a week.
All in all a great product, and I’m sure I’ll be buying in the future again.
