Thrustmaster T500 RS Racing Wheel
The T500 RS Racing Wheel for PS3 from Thrustmaster, maker of innovative PC and console accessories, delivers the most realistic, powerful driving experience, with no compromises. The T500 RS wheel and pedal set is specially designed for Gran Turismo 5, and other driving simulators for the PS3. PC drivers are now available through the Thrustmaster website, making it fully compatible with all PC racing titles.
The T500 RS is a real driving simulator, combining power and precision. Thrustmaster has drawn from more than 20 years of expertise in racing wheels, with a single goal: to develop a wheel and pedal set that allows users to go as far as possible in the Gran Turismo 5 experience. The designers have taken into account the expectations of the most demanding gamers, while also adhering to the technical choices of the developers of this new opus in the benchmark car racing series.
An Infinite Number of Driving Styles
Completely optimized for GT5, the T500 RS meets the demand for absolute realism. The first thing you'll will notice when setting it up is its weight: 10lbs for the wheel, and 16lbs for the pedal set. Another instantly visible feature is the omnipresent use of metal--for the gearshift levers, the wheel's central spokes section (12" in diameter) and the pedal set. This has required a mechanical design with no compromises.
Realistic Wheel Handling
Ergonomics were at the heart of the wheel's development, with an eye on optimizing game play, performance and driving sensations. The sequential gearlevers mounted on the base feature large 6.7" levers that are constantly accessible without letting go of the wheel. The wheel itself offers a remarkable 1080° rotation. These 3 full turns are also adjustable, thanks to a motorized stop, allowing the gamer choose the maximum degree of rotation according to the type of racing circuit and the car being driven.
Metal Pedals with Two Driving Positions
The spacing and height of the 100% metal pedal set is also fully adjustable and accommodate individual driving preferences by offering 2 positions: "floor-mounted" F1 style, or "suspended" GT style. The brake pedal has been given extra attention, with reinforced and adjustable resistance that lets users perfectly tailor their braking with near surgical precision, and which includes a removable mod. A textured foot rest, also crafted entirely of metal, completes the pedal set. Gamers will notice that having 3 pedals at their disposal not only enhances the level of realism, but it also gives them a taste of what's to come with the addition of an independent gear stick, which will also be available from Thrustmaster in the coming months.
More Power and Precision to Push the Limits of Racing
The T500 RS is a true racing simulator designed for the most die-hard racing fans. Its power is unmatched, with Force Feedback effects relayed via a 65W industrial motor, providing 150mNm at 3000 RPM. The Force Feedback mechanism is vigorous, fast-acting, and extremely responsive. While the power is potent, the integrated large dual-belt system ensures backlash-free and smooth behavior.
Fans of even the most intense racing experience know that power alone does not allow them to achieve the best performance. With this in mind, the T500 RS provides total precision which never decreases over time. The T500 RS employs the same technology developed for the world's latest benchmark flight stick, Thrustmaster's HOTAS WARTHOG. The magnetic sensor-based H.E.A.R.T HallEffect AccuRate Technology is incorporated into the wheel's steering mechanism. As a result the wheel is super-precise with 16-bit resolution and 65536 values on its steering axis. With this wheel and pedal set, users will go farther than ever before in the thrill of the ultimate racing experience. Get ready for an extraordinary ride.
Thrustmaster TH8A Shifter
The Thrustmaster TH8A Add-On Gearbox Shifter for PC, PS3, PS4 and Xbox One adds realism and authenticity to your racing experience. It offers realistic gear-shifting feel with its detachable knob. The gear stick is compatible with real universal (automotive) knobs available at car parts stores and big-box retailers, and the two included shift-plates offer your choice of "H"-pattern (7+1) and Sequential (+/-) shifting. The internal mechanism features 100% metal construction with a metal gear stick and clamping system. H.E.A.R.T. “Hall Effect AccuRate Technology” offers precision that won't decrease over time (with its contactless magnetic sensor). There is no tact switch and no potentiometer to wear out (allowing for unlimited product lifespan). The firmware is upgradable, and the internal memory offers adjustable gear-shift travel to suit your driving style (software available for download on PC). There is adjustable resistance when shifting gears and the shift-plate position and rotation is adjustable by 360 degrees. The clamping system position and rotation is also adjustable by 360 degrees. The clamp is optimized for any support surface including tables or shelves from 1 to 55 mm in thickness (0.04” to 2.17”). The built-in screw threads and removable clamping system allow for cockpit mounting. For PC use, the TH8A Add-On Gearbox Shifter works with all racing wheels on the market. With the PS3 and PS4, the gearbox works with the T500RS, Ferrari F1 Wheel Integral T500, T300RS, and T300 Ferrari GTE racing wheels. On Xbox One, it works with the TX Racing Wheel. Add excitement and realism to your racing experience with the Thrustmaster TH8A Add-On Gearbox Shifter for PC, PS3, PS4 and Xbox One.
