Moza Racing R16 Direct Drive Wheel Review By The SRG

It is safe to say that when beginning Sim Racing enthusiasts take their sim-racing hobby to a higher level, chances are they will want to upgrade their trusty belt-driven wheel to a Direct-Drive Force Feedback steering wheel.

While most direct drive wheel systems are not cheap due to their design cost and materials used, it does not mean that there are no affordable alternatives on the market. In the last few years, new products appeared and brought more competition to the niche Direct Drive wheelbase market, with more and more products coming over from very competitive Azian manufacturers.

One of the new players on the market is the Chinese Moza Racing brand, which recently introduces a brand new Direct Drive Wheel, Wireless Steering wheels, Loadcell pedals, and a Telemetry Display.

Now Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage introduces the Moza Racing R16 Direct Drive Wheel and puts the product through the famed SRG’s review process. Besides the DD wheelbase, Barry also takes a detailed look at the Moza Racing Steering Wheel and the Moza Digital Dash.

The Moza Racing R16 Direct Drive Wheel, Steering wheel, and Telemetry Display are all available via the official Moza Racing website.
