The SRW-S1 doesn’t require any drivers, and is purely plug and play which makes it easy to run on most rigs. If we look at the top we see a bunch of LED’s that react to the RPM and shows when its time to shift although it is not that accuarte. This function works best in Simraceway but there is a patch available from the SteelSeries website allows the LED’s to work in any game which supports the function.

I’m not going to go into to much details here but we can see buttons for pit stops, speed limiter (which allows you to only drive on first gear), break balance, camera angles etc etc.

On the back of the SRW-S1 they have placed gas and brake which are the bigger pedals on the back. The smaller ones on the other hand are for changing gears, one lowers the gear and the other raises to a higher gear. They are not hard to reach and even my six year old son was able to play and use them. The USB cable is sleeved but not stiff sleeving so it’s very easy to place the cord wherever or however you want it.

Simeraceway is a online based game where you can race vs other users online. You can buy cars and race on various tracks. The graphics are not as nice as on most car games but for a online based game its not that bad. There is no lag or issues at least from my end with high speed internet and a decent computer to play on.

  1. this is a hands on, not a review.

    you missed this:

    1 – dead zone test on both analogs sticks and triggers
    2 – trigger response and feel, as well as analog sticks
    3 – are buttons light or heavy to press?
