MOZA Racing: 9 NM R9 Wheel Base + Formula Wheel GS now available
Moza Racing’s product range has two new additions to look forward to: a 9 Newton-meter entry-level wheelbase and, as a supplement to the existing GT steering wheels, a compact Formula wheel.
R9 Wheel Base
The Direct Drive Wheel Base, which is smaller in both power and dimensions compared to MOZA Racing’s R16, has 9 Newton meters to match the name and is equipped with an aluminum housing. Moza promises a simple setup and a latency-free wireless power and data connection between the base and the in-house steering wheels. The base is available in black and white.
In Germany, the base can be purchased from Sim-Motion. The price of 439€ is a real challenge to Fanatec’s CSL-DD, which costs 349.95€ (5 NM) and 479.95€ (8 NM).

MOZA GS Steering Wheel
The also new Formula_Wheel from MOZA Racing stands out mainly due to its front plate made of Forged Carbon and the adjustable RGB lighting of the buttons. The Alcantara-covered grips and the shape are very similar to the Fanatec Formula Wheels, but at 300mm, the steering wheel is a good deal larger. The GS Steering Wheel from MOZA Racing comes standard with a Dual Clutch and Magnetic Shifter Paddles made of 3 millimeter thick Fordged Carbon as MOZA writes on their website. The equipment is rounded off by a shift indicator, which is also equipped with RGB LEDs.
The steering wheel can also be purchased from Sim-Motion in Germany. The price is 499€, which puts it at the lower end of the market.
