Thrustmaster’s F458 Italia racing game wheel is a replica of the wheel inside the Ferrari 458 Italia sports car, offering a number of Xbox 360-specific controls. In fact, it’s the first racing wheel ever to be officially licensed by both Ferrari and Microsoft.
The 28-cm-wide F458 Italia wheel comes with a pedal set, which consists of a brake pedal, a gas pedal and a footrest.
The Ferrari F430 Force Feedback racing wheel represents Thrustmaster’s answer to Logitech’s Driving Force GT wheel. Both of them offer powerful force feedback effects and fall under more or less the same price category with the F430 wheel being slightly cheaper than its famous predecessor, albeit in the same league performance-wise. You can order the Ferrari F430 wheel via OpenWheeler.co.uk for £150.00. Free next-day shipping is available on all UK orders.
While Thrustmaster’s previous XBOX 360 and PC-compatible Ferrari 458 Italia racing game wheel lacked force feedback support, the 11-inch-wide, super-precise, 16-bit-resolution Ferrari Vibration GT Cockpit 458 Italia wheel has been specially developed for the sake of all XBOX 360 owners who want to feel every ripple on the road ahead.
What’s more, the Ferrari Vibration GT Cockpit 458 Italia model uses a special Global Vibration System technology, which allows for the high-frequency vibration from the motor to be felt not on the wheel itself, but also throughout the cockpit’s entire steering column and pedal set.
Needless to say, this provides ultra-realistic effects and ensures total immersion in each racing game you play.
The Thrustmaster T500 RS is a high-end racing game wheel with 16-bit resolution. The T500 RS makes use of a magnetic Hall effect sensor, which ensures high levels of precision, and features a fast-responding force feedback mechanism, which guarantees a true-to-life racing simulation experience.
You can adjust the distance between the pedals as well as their height and choose between 2 positions: suspended (GT-style) and floor-mounted (F1-style).
Gear up for a Super-Realistic Sim Racing Experience! Thrustmaster’s TH8 RS shifter was built specifically for T500 RS owners who wish to switch gears manually using a clutch pedal and a gear stick, but it can be used by all PC and PS3 sim racing game players who’d like to feel as if they’re driving a real car.
The TH8 RS shifter sports seven forward gears plus one reverse gear, but you can replace the default gated, H-pattern (7+1) shift plate with a sequential (+/-) shift plate, which is provided as well.
Officially licensed by Ferrari, Thrustmaster’s Ferrari F1 add-on wheel sports Formula One-style switches, buttons and speed shifters. You can fine-tune the car in real time according to the conditions on the track using two rotary encoder knobs and change gears using two push-and-pull paddles. There are also two 8-way, pressure-sensitive D-pads and three 3-position metal switches.
Compatibility-wise, there are two gaming modes: a PC-compatible Advanced mode offering one D-pad and twenty five action buttons, and a PS3 & PC-compatible Normal mode offering three D-pads and thirteen action buttons. The Ferrari F1 add-on wheel is fully compatible with the latest F1 2012 game as well.
As its name implies, Thrustmaster’s RGT Force Feedback Clutch racing wheel was developed for the sake of all PC sim racing game players looking for a force feedback wheel, which features a clutch pedal. The RGT FFB Clutch wheel features 10 action buttons, a D-pad (for adjusting the car’s settings), a special “Force” button (for enabling and disabling the wheel re-centering mechanism during the game), as well as 2 progressive levers and 2 digital levers poised on its back. You can shift gears using a life-size sequential gear stick mounted on the dash to the right of the wheel as well.
