Agreed - the steering is quite unmanageable on XBOX360.
I always use the MS Steering wheel and it worked fine for the 1st Shift. For some reason they didn't carry it over to this game. Too bad - I like everything else.
I've spent 2 hours with it - but will not play anymore.
My time is too valuable to be chasing something that should be OK out of the box. Especially since they nailed it correctly the 1st time.
