RS Engine
Score: 98%
Developer: Act Labs
Device Type: Controller


Function:

The RS Engine is an ?add-on? for Act Labs? RS or Force RS steering wheels. You must have an RS or Force RS to use the RS Engine with. If you bought the PlayStation compatible model of the RS, congratulations. It?s in the box. If, however, you have the Force RS (PC) or the RS for another console system, the PlayStation compatible RS Engine will allow you to use those with your PlayStation as well.

Performance:

What is an RS Engine? The RS Engine is an integral part of Act Labs? RS racing system line. These are steering wheel and pedal systems which are high quality and perfect for racing on consoles or PCs. The RS Engine is essentially a ?cartridge? that fits into the back of the steering wheel and has the appropriate cables to interface the gaming system of your choice. In addition, the RS Engine handles any necessary translation to facilitate the interface. This system allows both the Act Labs RS and Force RS to be used with multiple systems. The beauty of this system is that you only pay for the compatibility you want to use. If you buy an RS for one of the systems you own, you can buy an additional RS Engine and use it with your other system. Due to the fact that the individual interfaces are specifically for a single gaming system, no compromises are required. All you get is accurate, high precision control, and great handling.

Features:
  • Allows the Force RS and/or RS to be used with the PlayStation
  • Works in Analog Wheel and Digital Wheel modes
  • Includes stickers for labeling button definitions

Drawbacks & Problems::

No problems with the RS Engine?s design. Only a wish. The RS Engine for the PlayStation was not designed to support the dual shock feature. As far as the handling, precision, and overall performance when used with an Act Labs RS or Force RS, it performs excellently.
