With its unprecedented 1080-degree rotation and shockingly powerful force feedback effects, the Thrustmaster T500 RS is, no doubt, one of, if not the most sophisticated steering wheel PlayStation 3 and PC sim racing game players can lay their hands on. No wonder the T500 RS is the official Gran Turismo 5 wheel. Thrustmaster’s ultra-realistic, 8-speed TH8 RS gear shifter employs the very same high-precision HallEffect AccuRate Technology™. It was built namely for the sake of T500 RS users who want to select gears manually using a gear lever and a clutch pedal (one is offered by the T500 RS by default). The TH8 RS shifter offers seven forward gears plus one reverse gear.
A distinct clicking sound lets you know that the desired gate has been arrived at. If you’d rather switch gears in an up-and-down fashion, you can substitute the default H-pattern (7+1) plate with a sequential (+/-) one, which is included as well. Being a T500 RS add-on, the TH8 RS shifter works great with Gran Turismo 5 when combined with the T500 RS, but you can also use it as a standalone gear-switching device when you play your favorite PC sim racing games. Either way, you will feel as though you’re driving a real car.
The T500 RS racing wheel is priced at £380.00, whereas the TH8 RS gear shifter costs £110.00 (a total of £490.00). However, you can order both of them simultaneously via OpenWheeler.co.uk. If you do so, the bundled price will be £470.00 (incl. 20% UK VAT*) and you will save some £20.00.
And if you happen to be a UK resident, the bundle will be shipped to you for free on the very next business day after the purchase.
