I saw this over at the rFactor2 beta forums.  It was originally posted by Leo over at the iRacing forum, which I'm not a member of. It looks like the Bodnar wheel is being readied to go into commercial production.  This could be an a great thing for sim racers.  Anyone who has, or has tried, a Bodnar wheel raves about them. Cue Remco Hitman.... :)

We are working hard here at out workshop at Silverstone to make it practical, affordable and unrivalled by any other steering system on the market.

Please understand that this is early production version and will have some subtle or not-so-subtle changes before going into production.

I will provide more details as they come.

Stay tuned!

Leo Bodnar

It doesn't matter what it costs; you NEED this.

I couldn't agree more, Remco! I am concerned it will be beyond my sim racing budget (read; I DON'T HAVE ONE). Yeah........my cockpit is made out of plywood and yours, well yeah.........enough said. Anyway, since we agree that I need this wheel, maybe you could help me out. :shrug: :D

I think it's safe to say that Leo's understanding of the word 'affordable' is as far off ours as is his definition of the concept 'near future'!

Very nice. When I have optimized my trading skills and the cashflow is starting to go higher, I will consider to order this wheel, when it's available ofcourse :)

Right now I'm out of any well working wheel :(

EPIC video showing some of the violence the Bodnar FF wheel throws at the driver and his rig. Earthquake!
