Every once in a while there's a little lag when the PS2/USB cable is used, but that was the only inconvenience. It was as simple as connecting the cables and then plugging the USB end into the computer. I went into the Default Game Options and enabled HotRodSE input and never had a problem.

I never once had to plug a keyboard into the HotRod to make it work.
