Top Forza Motorsport 6 steering wheel setup, headset and other complementary products

Forza Motorsport 6 is currently the highest-rated Xbox One exclusive. If you are planning to buy the game, we also suggest picking up a few other complementary products so that you can get the most out of the excellent racing simulator game.

Steering Wheel Setup

Of course, Forza Motorsport 6 won’t be much of a simulator experience if you are not using a steering wheel setup. For the best one, especially if you want a lot of customization options, we suggest purchasing the Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition, which comes with rubberized grip along with a rotation range of 270 to 900 degrees. It also features force feedback rumble and an upgradeable firmware, which should make it future proof. You can purchase the TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition with this link on Amazon.Of course, there are also other add-on products for you to check out, such as the compatible gearbox shifters and customizable pedal sets. You can take a look at the three with the following pages: Thrustmaster VG TH8A Add-On Gearbox Shifter, Thrustmaster T3PA 3-Pedal Wide Pedal Set Add-On and Thrustmaster VG T3PA-PRO 3-Pedal Add-On Set.Last but not least, you should also check out the Openwheeler Advanced Racing Seat Driving Simulator Gaming Chair with Gear Shifter Mount via this link if you want to feel like you are in the cockpit when racing through the numerous courses of Forza Motorsport 6.

Xbox One Elite Controller

If you prefer using a regular gamepad instead, then you might want to take a look at the Xbox One Elite Controller. The new version of the first-party gamepad comes with interchangeable paddles along with swappable directional pads and analog sticks. Therefore, you should be able to customize a setup that best suit your tastes when playing the latest Forza game by using a traditional controller.

Gaming Headset

Forza Motorsport 6 sounds just as good as it looks. This is especially true if you like how a car engine revs up. To take advantage of the audio design, however, you will need a surround sound setup. Instead of using expensive speakers, you can save money (as well as space) with a headset. We suggest picking up the Astro Gaming A50 or the Turtle Beach 500X/800X.

Take a look at the three 7.1 surround sound Xbox One gaming headsets with the following links: Astro Gaming A50 Xbox One, Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 500X and Turtle Beach Ear Force Elite 800X.

DLC Packs

The base game will have more than 450 cars to drive. If you want even more, then you should consider getting several of the expansion packs. The Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack comes with ten cars (such as the 2012 BMW M5, 2005 Honda NSX-R, 2013 McLaren P1 and 2014 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4) while the Car Pass will give you seven in-game cars per month for six months (42 in total).

You should also take a look at the VIP membership. which includes five exclusive cars: the 1997 McLaren F1, 2012 Aston Martin V12, Zagato 2013 Ferrari 458 Speciale, 2013 Lamborghini Veneno and 2016 Ford Shelby GT350R. Last but not least, the Fast & Furious Car Pack comes with vehicles from the popular film series.

Xbox Live Gold

If you want to take advantage of the online features of Forza 6, which are a huge part of the game, then you will need a Xbox Live Gold subscription. The racing game will let you play with up to 23 other players. It also comes with new Forza Race Leagues, online spectating in addition to Drivatars (which are computer A.I. based on the behaviors of other gamers).

So, if you are currently not subscribed to the service, you can purchase a one-year subscription with this link.

Xbox One Bundle

If you don’t own a Xbox One system, then Microsoft is making it easy for you to jump in for Forza Motorsport 6. The Xbox One Forza 6 Limited Edition 1TB Bundle comes with a race car inspired console design (as well as a matching Xbox One Wireless Controller) that will make car noises when booting up, shutting down and ejecting a disc.
