Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage reviews the high-end Wave Italy Impetus Pedal set. As usual, Barry leaves no stone unturned when reviewing a product. He guides us around the product features, he takes a look at the possible pedal adjustments, checks out how to mount the pedals on a racing rig, takes them for a test drive, and shares his final thoughts.
