Even though the top-of-the-line, 1080-degree-rotatable Thrustmaster T500 RS wheel does not include an external gearbox by default, all T500 RS owners who'd like to shift gears manually using the T500 RS's clutch pedal and a gear stick can resort to Thrustmaster's realistically sized, eight-speed TH8 RS shifter, which even makes use of the same contactless magnetic sensing HallEffect AccuRate Technology™. Sequential shifting adherents won't be disappointed either - they have to just substitute the default H-gate (7+1) plate with a sequential (+/-) plate, which is offered as well. PS3 racing game players will be glad to learn that the TH8 RS shifter works exceptionally well with Gran Turismo 5 when combined with the official GT5 wheel, which is namely...need we say it?
The PlayStation 3 and PC-compatible Logitech G27 is the only steering wheel displayed on this website, which actually offers an external, H-pattern gearshift module by default. And not only. Hardcore simmers will, no doubt, also appreciate its jaw-dropping 900-degree rotation (2.5 turns lock-to-lock), its fully adjustable clutch (yup!), gas & brake pedals and its extremely powerful, yet virtually quiet, helical gear-driven dual-motor force feedback mechanism. Aside from the mandatory D-pad, you will also find as many as fourteen buttons - six on the 28-cm-wide wheel itself, and eight - on the six-speed manual gear shifter. Plus, flashing LED lights will remind you every time the engaged gear needs to be changed.
There's hardly a PS3 console owner who wouldn't like to possess Thrustmaster's T500 RS - the official GT5 wheel offering an astounding 1080-degree rotation and one of the very, very best steering wheels for PlayStation 3 in general. For the benefit of all T500 RS users who'd sooner shift gears with a gear stick than with wheel-mounted paddle shifters, Thrustmaster introduced the 8-speed manual TH8 RS shifter, which will perfectly complement your T500 RS-based sim rig. These two great gaming tools cost a total of £490.00 - the T500 RS wheel is priced at £380.00, whereas the TH8 RS shifter - at £110.00. If you take advantage of our special bundle offer and order both of them simultaneously via OpenWheeler.co.uk, the T500 RS/TH8 RS combo will cost you just £470.00 (incl. 20% UK VAT*) and you will save £20.00.
And why not combine the T500 RS wheel and the TH8 RS shifter with the OpenWheeler+ gaming seat, which can perfectly accommodate both of them, since it includes even a gear shifter mount?
The resultant beast of a driving simulator will amount to a total of £802.00 - the T500 RS wheel costs £380.00, the TH8 RS shifter - £110.00, and the OpenWheeler+ seat - £312.00. If you take advantage of our exclusive bundle offer and order the three of them at once via OpenWheeler.co.uk, you will save £32.00 as the T500 RS/TH8 RS/OpenWheeler+ trinity will cost you £770.00 (incl. 20% UK VAT*). Regardless of the chosen bundle, the latter will be shipped to you at no charge at all on the next business day after the purchase on condition that you are a resident of the United Kingdom..
