Do Thrustmaster pedals work on Fanatec wheels?

    It's a pretty simple question, I currently have a thrustmaster wheel and T3PA pedals and i'm thinking of upgrading to a CSL elite wheel. They both use the same RJ12 connector.

    You'll need to plug them directly to your PC, usb ports.

    Well, in my case I use different brands for steering wheel and pedal set, so Im forced to plug each one to a usb port (no adapter needed though, they both came with usb cable).
    You'll be reducing input lag that way too.

    @Jazz Forsberg - I think he means the RJ12-USB adaptor.

    TP3As come with only the RJ12 connector as far as I know and that won't be compatible with the Fanatec wheel base. You'll need to get the RJ45-USB adaptor and plug your wheel and pedals in separately.

    That'll work just fine if you're on PC, I'd be guessing if I told you that'll work on console.

    Oh ok, couldn't figure it out as I never use them, so thanks for making things up clear :thumbsup:
    If thats the case he will need an adaptor rj-12 to usb for sure.
    :)

    edit: @Blauweke hope you read it mate, sorry for the confusion
