It is the one component that not only helps us feel connected to the road we are driving on but it is also incredibly visually inviting. The best thing to do is answer the invite and get into the vehicle and take it out for a long drive. Since it is directly in front of you every single moment of your driving time why not install one that is pleasing to the eye and also feels exhilarating to the touch.
The earliest known ancestor of the modern racing wheel is actually the paddle. You remember those, right? They were those old controllers people used in the seventies with the big spinner wheels in the middle. They gave tighter, better control in racing games than a traditional joystick, but... They did not exactly make you feel like you were driving a car, for obvious reasons. Still, these analog paddles introduced an important idea to the world of video games: Analog control. Where a joystick or directional pad allows for eight directions and one speed, the analog wheels would let you turn sharply or gradually left or right depending on the situation, allowing a whole new level of control for racing games.
For race inspired cars, a high performance steering wheel is the best way to go. There are many styles and options for you to choose from. Race inspired, performance wheels are smaller in diameter than regular wheels. This makes it easy to make tight turns. You may also find race inspired steering wheels to be easier to handle than regular wheels.If you would rather have a regular wheel for your passenger car, there are also ways to customize it. You can not only choose from race styles, but there are also leather steering wheels, wood grain wheels, banjo style wheels, and more.
If you are looking fashionable steering wheel covers that are both durable and beautiful then look no further than leather covers. Leather coverings are some expensive than cotton but they worth the money. Leather is an all weather fabric and it comes in natural colors. They are easy to put on the wheel and they can last longer than cotton covers. Leather covers are highly resilient towards moisture, dirt, dust and grime. Since they are washable, you can clean them with wet cotton cloth. Most car owners use leather covers on the steering wheels of their vehicles.
Let's move on to the actual installation. When your Wheelskins cover order is shipped, it will include well illustrated installation directions. You will also receive a quality lacing thong and an appropriate needle. You will notice that your cover will have Wheelskins' exclusive patented lacing hole reinforcement design. This ensures a tight fit on your steering wheel and allows you to tightly lace the cover on your wheel without tearing the leather. For most of you this will be your first experience installing a leather steering wheel cover. Begin slowly and don't be concerned if you need to take it apart and begin over. First, slide the Wheelskins cover over your steering wheel, keeping the reinforcement holes on the inner side of your wheel ring. Once you have the cover aligned, begin lacing the cover on at the 6 o'clock position on the wheel.
All the time I would have to consciously think of how to move my arms or feet as to control the vehicle on the screen to go in the direction I would like it to go and as people who are experienced would tell you - thinking of what you have to do consciously is the worst thing in racing and that's completely valid in racing games of any kind, even the most arcade ones. That is where using a joystick or gamepad makes it so much easier even if you are just starting.
