    Comments about Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition:

    As an adult that purchased this wheel for rFactor2 only I can only say I am quite disappointed with this product. To start off with the wheel is made for tiny hands, eight year old size hands. With even average adult sized hands my thumbs are hitting the two top buttons on each wheel spoke while racing. An annoying thing this wheel does is every time I plug it in the driver calls it a T500RS and the wheel does not work. I have to unplug and try again to get the driver to detect the wheel correctly. That could be tolerated but then the calibration of the wheel is off so when it centers it is tilted almost 15 degrees to the left. There is no option for recalibration so I'm stuck with a wheel turned to the left. I find this really annoying and haven't used the wheel but maybe three hours because of this. Researching this problem I have found I'm not the only one with this issue. In the past two weeks I have sent two emails to Thrustmaster technical support about these issues and have been ignored, no response other than the automated response that my message has been forwarded to tech support. I feel Thrustmaster knows this wheel has serious problems they don't want to admit so they hope if they ignore me I will go away. If you intend to clamp this thing to a desk and not bolt it to a playseat type cockpit you will need to improve the grip on the bottom of the wheel housing as the default pads provide insufficient grip to hold the wheel in place even when the clamp is extremely tight. The pedals are pathetic for a wheel of this cost but I expected that and planned on using other pedals all along. Other than I found this unit to be a general piece of junk on the bright side the force feedback is very good. Quiet, strong and quick responding. Too bad Thrustmaster decided to put a good force feedback motor in a hunk of junk. I feel this was a waste of money and should have purchased a different product. The final insult of a poor purchase decision is the price dropped a substantial amount in the past three weeks since I got snookered on this thing. I hold no ill will towards B&H, they just sold me what I thought I wanted, Thrustmaster is the one who let me down. Two stars and not one because of nice force feedback.

      Great feel and performance from this wheel. Really adds to the Forza MS 5 experience. No regrets purchase...would buy it again in a heartbeat. Only inconvenience was initial setup needs you to update the wheel software via a PC connected to the internet. Do wish Thrustmaster would provide a longer USB cable as I had to get an extender. Actual performance of the wheel is 5 stars.

      Excellent FFB Wheel!!

      By lbill

      Comments about Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition:

      I purchased this wheel a couple of weeks ago and after driving several thousand miles with it I can say it is top notch. I have had several wheels through the years and this I by far the smoothest. It is very comparable to the T500 by thrusmaster. While the TX is not as strong as the T500 I prefer the smooth ffb and rumble over brute force. With Forza 5 it is magic very responsive and you can feel every rumble strip on the road and get a good feeling of the weight of the car. It also works with the PC as well with no issues. I have used it on iRacing and Asset to Corsa and can tell u it works flawlessly. Also it works with the T500 pedal set which I prefer over the TX stock pedals, you also can use the th8rs shifter that is already available. You do need to install a firmware update right out of the box. But this is very easy to do from thrustmasters support site. A link to this is provided in the manual for the wheel. A great purchase overall because of its versatility and ultra smooth force feedback. My only con is the stock pedal. While adequate, they do not have a clutch or adjustability. If you are on the fence I say go for it you will not be disappointed.
