Closer Look



The shifter module has a nice racing look. The shift boot, much like the wheel, is leather. The shifter knob has the gate diagram embossed on the top. Like a real six speed, you have to push down on the shifter and head towards sixth gear to hit reverse. This can be a bit tricky at first but with a little practice you should have it down.

There are three clamps that hold the shifter module in place. This clamp system works very well in keeping the shifter in place as you slam through the gears. If you're anything like me, a clamp system for your monitor wouldn't be a bad idea either.



Pictured above is the dial to convert the shifter from gated to sequential. In sequential shift mode, the stick acts just like all the other steering wheel shift knobs: bump it up to down shift and back for up shift. Keep in mind that you have to push the gear shift down like your going to reverse to switch between the two.

Above the dial is an assortment of buttons. These come in handy if you plan on using the wheel on a Sony Playstation 2 (Yes, that's right, the G25 is compatible with the PS2 also). It also comes in handy for buttons you use often in racing games; for me, the reset car button. There are two green LEDs as well. The power indicator is on the right and the sequential shift mode indicator is on the left.
