Thrustmaster T500 RS

The Thrustmaster T500 RS is Thrustmaster’s newest top of the line steering wheel, introducing several innovative new features to the racing game world.

The wheel is made of durable materials such as brushed metal and comes with advanced features such as 1080 degree steering and unrivaled precision thanks to Thrustmaster’s H.E.A.R.T HallEffect AccuRate Technology that offers 65536 values on the steering axis using a contactless magnet sensor.

The fast-paced response is enriched by strong and detailed Force Feedback effects provided by dual belt-driven motors.

The T500 RS pedal set offers another innovation as the pedals can be used both in the standard way and inverted (hanging pedals) simply by flipping the pedal unit. Aside from that, the pedals are also fully adjustable and come with an optional “Realistic Brake” mod.

Thrustmaster TH8 RS

The TH8 RS Shifter is the perfect addition to the T500 RS as it combines a 7+1 & a sequential shifting unit.

Just like the wheel, the shifter is also using Thrustmaster’s H.E.A.R.T HallEffect AccuRate technology for maximum precision.

The shifter is made of highly-durable metal and offers a maximum of customization options as users are free to adjust tension, stroke & deadzone via hardware & software adjustments.

The TH8 RS works with every PC simulation that supports multiple controllers, it’s connected via USB and requires no driver or software installation to work.

Thrustmaster GP XID

The GP XID is Thrustmaster’s newest gamepad controller, equipped with the Xinput standard that makes using the pad extra easy.

Thanks to Xinput, players using Windows 7 or 8 don’t need to fiddle with driver installation or button mapping within games, simply plug in the pad and you`re ready to go!

The GP XID is perfectly suited to be used with Project CARS, featuring ultra-precise mini-sticks clad in genuine rubber and two progressive triggers for maximum control.
