Default Thrustmaster T500 RS Force Feedback Wheel with Pedals Review

Thrustmaster, known for their high end gaming gear for flightsims, have turned their attention to steering wheels. With the endorsement of Gran Turismo 5 they have released a ~550 wheel and pedal kit that aims to give you the best racing experience available, without going completely bankrupt. How does it stack up to a 100 wheel? Is it worth the extra cost? Time to find out.

this has nothing to do with that
the T500, like the Fanatec high end wheels, feature belt-driven engines to transfer the force feedback which is a lot more "natural" compared to wheels that rely on gears. The G27 from Logitech is not bad, not at all, but simply outclassed by the T500.

Logitech Momo on the other hand... well, it's ancient tech, and you will definitely be able to control your virtual car better with a newer wheel
