    im having a hard time controlling my car using the wiimote sideways. i always tend to overturn, or sometimes lost control of the car. luckilly mario kart has the option to use nunchuck. but for other games which is required to use the wiimote. it gets pretty annoying.

    just practice... its really great.

    excite truck
    excite bots
    dirt 2
    mario kart

    all are great steering controls (dirt 2 is amazing)

    tip: to stop oversteering... steer less!

    ok.. ill try to steer less.

    its just im more comfortable using the d-pad on racing games.. it gives me more control.

    does the steering wheel add-on for mario kart gives me more accurate steering or its just the same with 3rd party steering wheel or it will have the same control by just using the wiimote alone?

    It's just a chunk of plastic. It'll make you hold the remote in your hands differently - nothing else.

    I tend to find it depends on the game.

    Mario kart - Steer with WiiMote.

    Dirt2 - Steer with Nunchuck.

    It's all down to preference, just be happy you get a choice ;-)

    everything is just practice. the wiimote sensitivity is really impressive. at first, it was really frustrating (playing mario kart with the wheel). as i use it by and by, i eventually get the hang of it. goodluck. [​IMG]

    I love playing with the wheel in MKW. It's the other games, like NFS, where you hold the wiimote parallel to the floor (face-up) and *then* have to tilt the ends up/down that drive me nuts.

    You'll have the same control with just the Wiimote, a 3rd party steering wheel add-on works just as well as the original, you can get one for $5.50 at Dealextreme, and you can make your own out of styrofoam if you want. It's really just for the "feel."

    The Wii wheel is best for me - I never really got into using analogs - Id always oversteer

    Really ? I played dirt 2 once. I find it to such a dissapointment. Both graphically and gameplay wise.

    My favorite is Need for Speed Undercover with Nunchuck. I'm really waiting for the new f1 game.

    Steering with the Wii Remote in sideways position is actually good when the game handle it correctly. See Need for Speed Nitro, in my opinion it's awesome! But see Speed Zone, yurk...
    Most of players feels akward about playing like this because they miss the force feedback on Wheel controlers.
