With its nonpareil 1080-degree rotation, ferociously powerful and realistic force feedback effects and fully adjustable gas, brake and clutch pedals, the Thrustmaster T500 RS is a dream wheel for many hardcore simmers. Based on the same high-precision HallEffect AccuRate Technology™, Thrustmaster’s life-size, eight-speed TH8 RS gear shifter represents a logical addition to your T500 RS-dominated sim rig. If you order these great gaming devices simultaneously, the bundled price will be £450.00, i.e. £20.00 off their regular price.
There’s hardly a diehard PS3 sim racing game player out there who doesn’t know that the Thrustmaster T500 RS is the official Gran Turismo 5 wheel, that it can rotate up to the staggering 1080 degrees and that it offers hyper-realistic, at times even finger-hurting force feedback effects. Built for the sake of all T500 RS owners who happen to be also Formula One fans, Thrustmaster’s Ferrari F1 wheel features F1-style switches and speed shifters. The two wheels are fully interchangeable and if ordered at once, their price would be £450.00 instead of £470.00.
Being a Ferrari-authorized replica of the Formula 1 Ferrari 2011 racing wheel, Thrustmaster’s Ferrari F1 wheel is meant to uncurtain the average T500 RS user to the magic world of Formula 1. It boasts F1-style speed shifters, pushbuttons and knobs, and, by virtue of being a detachable T500 RS add-on, it can resort to the very same monstrously powerful force feedback motor and achieve the almost ‘unachievable’ 1080 degrees of rotation. You can order Thrustmaster’s Ferrari F1 wheel together with the OpenWheeler gaming seat for £370.00. This bundle will save you £10.00.
Thrustmaster’s T500 RS and Ferrari F1 wheels share one and the same wheel base, which makes them fully interchangeable. Both wheels allow for a hair-raising 1080-degree rotation and offer force feedback effects, which are so realistic that you will feel as if you’re sitting in a real GT or F1 racing car. You can even pick between suspended (like in a GT car) and floor-mounted (like in an F1 car) clutch, gas and brake pedals. You can take advantage of our unique bundle offer and order these two great wheels together with the OpenWheeler gaming seat for £700.00. By doing so, you will save £40.00.
The OpenWheeler gaming seat works equally well with all kinds of steering wheels. Based on the video game console you are using (PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360), you can take advantage of several attractively priced bundle packages and save between £5.00 and £40.00. There aren’t that many Xbox 360 steering wheels on the market at the moment, so if you are looking for a good one, Thrustmaster’s Ferrari 458 Italia should be the most obvious choice. If you order it together with OpenWheeler, the bundle will cost £330.00 and you will save £10.00. In terms of PlayStations 3 steering wheels offering force feedback support, however, you have a big choice.
For example, you can combine OpenWheeler with Thrustmaster’s Ferrari F430 Force Feedback wheel (this package saves you £5.00), with Logitech’s Driving Force GT - the former official GT5 wheel (you will save £20.00), with Thrustmaster’s industry-leading T500 RS - the current official GT5 wheel (you will get a £30.00 discount), and even with two wheels simultaneously - namely with Thrustmaster’s T500 RS and Ferrari F1 wheels, which share a common wheel base and which are fully interchangeable (this bundle saves you £40.00). Each bundled package has its own strengths, but the bottom line is that if you combine the wheel of your choice with the OpenWheeler gaming seat, you will de facto get everything you need to render your sim racing experience as realistic as possible.
