The PlayStation 3 and PC-compatible Thrustmaster T500 RS is the official Gran Turismo 5 racing wheel and this is so for a reason. It allows for a hard-to-believe 1080-degree rotation and avails of an extraordinarily powerful force feedback mechanism, which guarantees blazing-fast responses, and of a hyper-precise contactless magnetic sensing technology. It is safe to say that the 30-cm-wide T500 RS is ‘the wheel of all wheels’, especially when it comes to wheel rotation, steering precision and force feedback support. The wheel features all default PlayStation 3 game controller buttons and includes a pedal set with fully adjustable clutch, brake and gas pedals.
You can change gears via two sequential shift paddles, which do not rotate when you turn the wheel, or using the realistic 8-speed TH8 RS gear shifter, which is an add-on for the T500 RS wheel and, as such, is sold separately. There’s still another T500 RS add-on - namely Thrustmaster’s Formula 1-style Ferrari F1 wheel, which you can take advantage of thanks to the fact that both wheels are detachable and fully interchangeable. You can, of course, mount the T500 RS wheel onto a desk or table, but if you combine it with the completely adjustable OpenWheeler racing seat, you might as well get yourself a full-blooded driving simulator. And this means that you can have your very own GT, F1 or rally car cockpit right at home!
