While most of us will never be lucky enough to make it into the cockpit of a real-life Ferrari 430 Scuderia, the Thrustmaster Ferrari Wireless GT Cockpit 430 Scuderia Edition might just be the next best thing. Identical in form and functionality to the American version, this Canadian version of the wheel features bilingual packaging and documentation in French and English. This replica cockpit ensemble has a built-in wheel and pedal set, with several features to enhance your virtual racing performance for PlayStation 3 or USB PC games. Right down to the metallic colors and shape of the pedals, this set was in every way modeled after its powerful Ferrari counterpart.
While racing, you can take advantage of long-range wireless connectivity with 2.4 GHz technology and a generous range of up to 33 feet. You can enjoy up to 50 hours of game play before changing the AA batteries.
Delivering ultimate precision is Thrustmaster's H.E.A.R.T. HallEffect AccuRate Technology, which relies on magnetic, rather than mechanical, 3D (HallEffect) sensors. This allows for unparalleled precision and also eliminates friction to highly reduce mechanical wear for permanent precision that won't decrease over time. This technology also eliminates dead zones -- even your slightest movements will be detected. Actions with this cockpit set are therefore more linear, smoother and without any latency.
The built-in wheel is a replica of that found on the Ferrari 430 Scuderia and is 70% of the actual size. It is 11" in diameter and has a 5-position Manettino dial so you can configure your car directly in the race. The sequential gearshift levers are made of metal, and the rubber-textured grip allows you to firmly take hold of the wheel. The wheel is fully programmable and has internal memory.
Of course, you want to be comfortable while driving and the cockpit is fully adjustable for different sized bodies and different types of seating like chairs or couches to ensure ergonomic comfort. It has a foldable design and the wheel is detachable, making it easy to store when you're not using it. The compact, practical and efficient Ferrari Wireless GT Cockpit 430 Scuderia Edition is designed to let you experience the thrill of the race tracks in your very own living room.
