Not quite as good as the older one.

  • Summary: The position of the wheel in relation to the desk was lower and not as good as the older thrustmaster that I had. The clamp to the desk was not quite as good either.

Good price but.

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Overall I would have given this wheel at least a 4/5 but I knocked an egg off because of Thustmaster claiming the damage was mechanical when it was more likely caused by the poor build quaility.
  • Pros: Its a good wheel for the price, used in Race 07, GTR Evo, Sega Rally Revo and a couple of truck sims.
  • Cons: The bolt for the clamp failed after a year or so, made a homemade bolt as a temp fix, then more recently an area under the brake pedel broke. So I sent an e-mail to Thurstmaster and they said "Regarding your Ferrari GT Experience. Thank you for the photos you have sent us. Herewith we would like ...

Made To Break

colbert c., Newegg
29 November 2012
  • Pros: Works well right out of the box. Nice feel, nice performance.
  • Cons: About 11 months after I got it the left paddle shifter went out, and although Thrustmaster was very quick to mail the parts, I had to do the replacement. Not bad, but would have preferred replacement. 2 months later, the clamp for securing the wheel to the table broke on the right side. So far ha...

Model # confusion

David A., Newegg
23 June 2011
  • Summary: INPORTANT NOTE: My main reason for getting this racing wheel was that it has 3-in-1 support for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PC. This is true based on the advertised page of this product for Model#: 2960697. Now I got this same model, but was not 3-in-1. It was only for PS3 and PC.
  • Pros: Steering and pedals feel good. Pedals have a nice pressure feel so you can get the real experience of braking and acceleration like in a real car. The wheel has nice rubber around it where you place your hands. It gives it a nice grip and feel. Pedals will move around depending on the floor and p...
  • Cons: Model # confusion I returned my racing wheel the same day i got it.

It works.

Anonymous, Newegg
30 March 2011
  • Summary: If you're a serious racing sim driver this is not the wheel for you. If you're just a once a week for fun/NFS/GRID person this wheel will be fine for you as long as you don't want force feedback.
  • Pros: It works excellent on my PC with everything except GTA4. Race On, NFS Shift/Hot Pursuit, GRID, Blur etc all worked flawlessly. It even works in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for the ground vehicles.
  • Cons: The break pedal is extremely stiff compared to the gas pedal on my set. The shift paddles on the wheel make slightly loud click sounds which can get annoying if you're running manual transmission. Setting up this wheel with Gran Turismo 5 on the PS3 is a pain. GT5 doesn't support it as a wheel, b...

Average gaming wheel

Alex Biaheza, Amazon
30 October 2010
  • Summary: I got this wheel as a Christmas present for my little brother. I didn't set up the vibration feedback so I don't even now if the vibration feature works. I tried it and the sensetivity is not perfect and build quality could be better. The pedals however are heavy and stable enough.

Nice steering. Pedals are a pain in the ....

David Greifer, Amazon
30 October 2010
  • Summary: Very good steering. However, the gas and brake pedal are to close together. They do not act like real pedals. They have nonadjustable spring back. I ended up assigning a button on the wheel to act as the brake.The pedals have a tendency to slide around on tile.

Just OK

Jill S., Amazon
29 October 2010
  • Summary: Steering wheel has a slow response time and it's a bulky attachment for computer use. Also, must constantly be removed, attached, removed, attached...unless the computer it is going on is for racing only.
