About this deal

Some PC games (e.g., Dirt®3™ ) require that you install the latest available game updates for the Thrustmaster shifter to work correctly. This is the only real downside to the unit. The unit we tested had a very stiffbrake pedal from new, which meant that applying 100% braking was tough without standing on the pedal with all your weight. The problem apparently lies with the rubber stopper that is intended to give you a realistic feel of resistance, but it seems that some units' rubber is too hard. It can be modified, and will get better over time, but the fact remains that other units offer more playable experience straight out of the box. Still, assuming you can get the brakes working well, the rest of the unit is a bargain at this price, considering the product you're getting. Elsewhere, this is just such a comfortable controller to use in driving games, particularly thanks to the tapered shapes of the triggers that make them nice and easy to hold down for long periods of time. If you have larger hands and like the feel of a taller controller with longer grips, this is for you. Being able to swap out modules mid-game is fantastic, and the controller is only really let down by the fact it's still wired-only. Best Xbox steering wheel: FAQs Which steering wheel is best for Xbox?

The wheel feels less solid and realistic as a result, although since it's modelled on a real Ferrari wheel, at least the design is suitably racy and comfortable. It too has long-pronged paddle shifters, so you can change gear with your fingertips while you race, just like real racing drivers. On PC , the TH8A shifter can be used with all currently available racing wheels & all games compatible with the multi-USB feature and shifter devices (*)(**) : Microsoft Flight Simulator sees second-rate peripherals during the early days, with manufacturers still readying Xbox-compatible products. But the current market has two options with confirmed compatibility — and just one that you should consider for your console. Since the default setting is "A button: Shift Up, X button: Shift Down", button reassignment is necessary to operate with the paddle.Since the default setting is "A button: Shift Up, B button: Shift Down", button reassignment is necessary to operate with the paddle. If a full racing wheel setup seems like too much of a faff, the Thrustmaster eSwap XR Pro Controller might be just the thing you need. In the box of this modular Thrustmaster gamepad, there lies a nifty little attachment that lets you get the kind of racing wheel enjoyment you would from a proper wheel and pedals, from the comfort of something you can hold in your hand. The eSwap X Pro is one of the most versatile and best all-round controllers we've had the joy of testing. The XR is essentially that same gamepad, albeit with some flashy Forza-inspired aesthetics. The layout of this wheel is very similar to the Leather Racing Edition of the top-tier model, which is perfectly functional, but doesn't have buttons easily accessible under your thumbs - you do need to reach for them. When that means your handbrake isn't the easiest button to press - especially when you're turning the wheel already - that's not ideal. However, it's a solid and otherwise pleasant-feeling design, and the long-pronged paddle shifters means you can easily change gear whether you hold your wheel at the 10-to-two position, or the racier quarter-to-three. It likely won't take as much of a beating as more expensive wheels, but if you drive smoothly, it'll serve you very well indeed. Since the Shift Down button is not assigned by default, button assignment through the in-game settings is necessary to use the pedals. Shift operation is not possible with the paddle. The button settings "Y button: Shift Up, B button: Shift Down" cannot be changed.

To avoid any conflict between the racing wheel and the shifter, some PC games may require you to proceed as follows : Do not allocate any features to the wheel’s up/down shifters. Define a « button pushed = gear shift » feature (e.g. in GTR™ Evolution or Race® On). Install any required plug-ins (e.g. the « H Shifter Plugin » in Richard Burns RALLY™) In some places, these compromises feel like they cross the line, though. The pedals, for example, are set on a strikingly small plastic base that doesn’t feature any kind of grip. The combination of lightness, narrow gap between the pedals, and the necessity of having to exert a lot of force on the top of them means they slide all over the place and have a tendency to lift up under use.

Product Reviews

It is necessary to change the right / left turn operation (LT, RT button) of the rear wheel to another button. In that case, analog operation is not possible. Since the default commands are Shift UP (B button) and Shift DOWN (A Button), button's configuration is necessary. The game default controls are "Shift UP: A button" and "Shift DOWN: X button", so if you want to use the paddles, you need to change the buttons. Since the default setting is "Y button: Shift Up, X button: Shift Down", button reassignment is necessary to operate with the paddle.

Microsoft Flight Simulator and its stunning virtual skies helped reinvigorate the PC simulation scene, with an Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S version only more accessible. But as the first full-fledged flight simulator on Xbox consoles, the choice of accessories is extremely limited right now. These Thrustmaster and HORI products are the only solutions currently, although the T.Flight Hotas One claims our top spot. The Thrustmaster T.Flight Rudder also works with Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox, accompanying the T.Flight Hotas One. But there's more ahead for budding Xbox pilots, with Microsoft recently confirming "new, Xbox-compatible peripherals" on the horizon for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Steering wheels are typically aimed at either entry-level players looking to dip their toes in the water of sim racing, or hardcore racers who have been doing this for some time now, but the G923 caters for both brilliantly. The G923 also offers perhaps the most immersion you'll get from any wheel on the market thanks to the new TrueForce technology, while still keeping the price point below the upmarket costs. Since the default setting is "X button: Shift Up, B button: Shift Down", reassignment is necessary to operate with the paddle. Since the game default operation is "Shift UP: A button" and "Shift DOWN: X button", you need to change the button if you want to operate with the paddle.Since the default setting is "A button: Shift up, X button: Shift Down", button reassignment is necessary to operate with the paddle.
