Approximating reality as closely as possible is the ultimate goal of all sim racing games. That is why, for the sake of all hardcore sim racers, Thrustmaster developed the PS3 and PC-compatible TH8 RS gear shifter. It uses a contactless, magnetic Hall-effect sensor, so there are no mechanical parts that can wear out. The 8-speed, H-gate shift plate is 360-degree-rotatable. A sequential shift plate, which will allow you to upshift by pulling the gear stick towards the "+" sign and to downshift by pushing it towards the "-" sign, is included as well. You can adjust the gear stick's resistance level, making it easier for you to shift or harder. The gear stick itself features a removable knob, which is compatible with those that can be found in real cars.
Being a T500 RS add-on, the TH8 RS shifter quite naturally works well with Thrustmaster's industry-leading PlayStation 3 steering wheel, but you can use it as a standalone gear changing device with your PC racing video games as well.
The shifter's adjustable clamping system allows you to mount it onto different types of surfaces. The OpenWheeler+ gaming seat, for example, has a special gear shift plate intended just for that purpose. The T500 RS wheel will fit perfectly into OpenWheeler's chassis as well. You can order the TH8 RS shifter on its own for £110.00 or together with the T500 RS wheel for £470.00 (you will save £20.00). You can even order the TH8 RS shifter, the T500 RS wheel and the OpenWheeler+ gaming seat all at once for £770.00 (you will save £32.00). All prices include 20% UK VAT*. Free next-day shipping is available on all UK orders.
