Thrustmaster T500 RS Wheel + Thrustmaster TH8 RS Gear Shifter
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.
