Was already reviewed somewhere - huge dead zone while steering, so You can forget about slight course corrections and precise driving.

For that price I'd go for T80 (if used wheels are out of option).

I would prefer more than the feeling of durability, how's about actual durability.
Anyway , suction cups, never again a bloody clamp isn't sufficient so suction cups ,hell no.

The kit does come with clamps. Suction cups can work well if done right. I'd like to see TPU review this set! Or maybe Jayz2Cents as he's a big car racing fan!

Suction cups are a simple means to accidentally smack yourself or someone else in the face with a steering wheel, I would expect it's more solid than they're less inspired comments.
I agree on the rest it's nice to hear a clamps there and reviews would be nice.
My T150 isn't beyond replacement.
