The Thrustmaster TH8A Add-On Gearbox Shifter is compatible with select racing wheels and adds realism and authenticity to your racing experience. It offers realistic gear-shifting feel with its detachable knob. The gear stick is compatible with real universal knobs available at car parts stores and big-box retailers, and the two included shift-plates offer your choice of "H"-pattern (7+1) and Sequential (+/-) shifting. The internal mechanism features metal construction with a metal gear stick and clamping system. H.E.A.R.T, which stands for Hall Effect AccuRate Technology, offers precision that won't decrease over time. There is no tact switch and no potentiometer to wear out. The clamping system position and rotation is also adjustable by 360 degrees. The built-in screw threads and removable clamping system allow for cockpit mounting.

Features

Hall Effect AccuRate Technology (H.E.A.R.T) provides precision that won't decrease over time with no need for a tact switch or a potentiometer.
With upgradable firmware and internal memory, the TH8A conforms to your driving style. You can even adjust the resistance when shifting gears. Both the shift-plate position and rotation are adjustable by 360°.
The TH8A is optimized for clamping on any support surface from 0.04 - 2.16" (1 - 55 mm) in thickness. The built-in screw threads and removable clamping system allow for cockpit mounting. It also has a USB interface.
The metal internal mechanism, metal gear stick, and metal clamping system provides a real driving experience. To add to the realism, the 5.1" (13 cm) gear stick has a detachable knob and is also compatible with real universal knobs.

    TH8A Add-On Shifter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to your sim racing rig. First off, to be honest, this is not a must have in order to enjoy sim racing. It is a great shifter that enhances your sim racing experience though. If you already have a decent FFB wheel, an upgraded pedal set and a good size HD TV or monitor(s), then the TH8A is the next step to take. If not, buy those things before buying the shifter. I have mine directly plugged into my T150 and I am using it with the T3PA pedals (I also picked up the Ricmotech Short Shift kit for the TH8A). Project CARS, DiRT Rally and Assetto Corsa are a lot of fun with the shifter. Just remember: the car needs to have an H pattern shifter in order to really work correctly. New race cars mainly use sequential/paddle shifters and the older cars use the H pattern shifting. The shifter does allow it to be used as a sequential system, but your paddles are probably faster and easier to use. I have also used it as my e-brake in DiRT Rally. Most games allow an auto-clutch option so you can use the shifter without having to use (or even have) a clutch peddal. The shifter is well built, has a lot of versatilty in where & how it can be mounted, and is a great addition to your sim rig.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sim Racing Shifter by Thrustmaster This is my first sim racing (race car gaming) shifter.. and honestly it is great and really adds to the immersion. I hook it up to my T300 wheel directly, and it was easy. The two modes (H pattern, and Sequential) both work well, and are easy to switch back and forth from. Just like any manual car.. you need to get used to where the gears are. This is a tight H pattern that can go up to 7 gears so it takes some getting used to before you will hit every upshift and downshift perfect. Great product and great service from B&H

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy!!!! I purchased this shifter to use along my Thrustmaster T500RS and everything works great. My shifter came well packaged and quick. If your in the market for a nice, well made, and dependable shifter this is it and B&H Photo Video is the place to get it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, highly recommended Got an amazing price on B&H, was surprised to see them selling this. Great product, feel's very well made and should last a very long time. Lots of ways to mount it and customize the resistance feel when shifting. I would also suggest picking up the T3PA pedals as well. This product still works without them, but having that clutch pedal makes it so much better. Highly recommend this product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks nice and works well If it were cheaper, i'd give it a 5. The 4 stars is based on function and value. It works great. It looks more stylish and feels better than the Logitech gear shifter. With the Logitech, there's no dedicated reverse slot. And I believe the Logitech has only 5 or 6 gears, whereas the Thrustmaster has 7 plus the reverse. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, but so far so good. Works well with The Crew on the PS4. I have it plugged into the Thrustmaster t300 wheel.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Built extremely well, but could use some sort of feedback... The Thrustmaster wheel setup is great and realistic but the shifter, while extremely well built and functional, lacks any type of feedback. Don't get me wrong, it's really cool to drive an old muscle car and be able to really shift gears...but the experience is a bit lacking sometimes because if you miss a shift, it takes a while to figure it out and correct it. What I mean by this is, it physically goes into gear with no fuss, no vibration... But on the screen, you're not in gear, so you have to press the clutch again, shift to neutral, and then shift back into the desired gear again. It would be nice if there was some sort of force feedback, vibration, or something to let you know when you miss a shift by feel. Otherwise it's a great shifter, it's built like a tank, very customizable, and has plenty of options for your gaming needs (standard, sequential, and even analog mode on PC for handbrakes and such). It's a nice piece of kit, and I'm not unhappy with it... It would just be so much better if they had put some sort of feedback in it. The pedals have the conical brake mod for the right feel, the wheel has the servo motor, but the shifter is just a plain old shifter with no feedback of any kind. Maybe they'll fix that on the next model.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't give it a high rating This shifter is well made, heavy duty and easy to install. However I was disappointed when actually using it in races. I have not completed a race yet where there haven't been a couple of instances where shifting to 3rd or 5th was intermittent. Step on the clutch pedal put it into 3rd or 5th and the indicator stays in Neutral. On the B&H side of this purchase: good price and fast delivery.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Shifter This shifter is awesome, wish it was a little shorter, cause it takes a little time to get use too. I love the ability to change it from an H-Pattern shifter to a Sequential shifter.
