Racing – Direct Drive Base + Wheel + Pedals + Dash
The Chinese manufacturer Moza has launched its own simracing brand, Moza Racing. The range starts with two different direct-drive systems, which are complemented by matching steering wheels, Loadcell pedals and a 5-inch dashboard. Test reports are not yet available. The prices are relatively high and it remains to be seen whether the manufacturer will be able to put pressure on the current big names of the simracing market with these products.
MOZA Racing R16 Direct Drive Wheel Base – 1199€ + shipping
The manufacturer promises 16 NM of direct-drive torque from an industrial-grade engine in the R16 Base. Inspired by supercars, the R16 has a 3D-moulded body and a two-tone car paint job. To add to the realism, Moza says the R16’s body was made from aircraft-grade aluminium alloy.

MOZA Racing R21 Direct Drive Wheel Base – 1399€ + shipping
The Moza R21 is the stronger version of the R16 and, as the name suggests, comes onto the market with 21 Newton metres. The manufacturer promises: With the same volume, the maximum torque of the R16 is 30 % higher. The torque ripple and cogging torque have been further optimised, resulting in the ultimate smooth steering feel.
MOZA Racing CRP Pedals – 529€ + shipping
The pedals from Moza appear to be in the range of the Heusinkveld Sprint. According to Moza, the three pedals each have a built-in CRP pedal sensor with a wide range of force detection. The MOZA MPressure always measures force accurately, from the gentlest heel and toe taps to fast, hard brake strokes. Pedal travel and inclination can be variably adjusted.
|Overall material||All aluminum alloy with CNC process|
|The actual maximum monitoring force of the brake||750N/375N|
|Throttle form||Organ floor type|
|Pedal face angle||Adjustable|
MOZA Racing wheel – 529€ + shipping
The steering wheel from Moza is operated without a cable connection and is probably only compatible with the manufacturer’s Direct Drive Base. In addition to the now obligatory shift paddles, it is also equipped with a double clutch and has various function buttons. According to the manufacturer, Alcantara / Nappa leather imported from Italy was used as the material for the rim, and forged carbon for the front panel. At 13 inches (~33cm), it is relatively large; its unique selling point is probably the continuous LED band for the speed display.

Moza Dashboard / Screen – 319€ + shipping
The Moza dashboard, which unfortunately can also only be used in conjunction with the manufacturer’s base, is made of aluminium and has a 5-inch screen with the familiar resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. Initially, 10 simulations are supported; unfortunately, Simhub support does not seem to be available yet.
