I finally received my Thrustmaster TH8A shifter today after multiple delays it seems. The original release date was Sept. 1 in the US, but every week it got pushed back. Amazon shipped it Friday and I received it today by USPS. Thank you Amazon for that Sunday delivery. I just wanted to say there's not much to talk about this shifter if you already own a TH8RS which I do also. The TH8A is practically identical except that is has two different cables that can be connected, one cable that connects the shifter directly to the Thrustmaster TX or T300 wheels for console compatibility, and one cable that connects it directly by USB for PC compatibility. It appears to be exactly the same as the Th8RS other than this, except it sure sounds louder and a bit "clicky" when moving the shifter around compared my TH8RS. I haven't opened the TH8A to see if anything is different internally, but there is no question that it makes a little more noise for some reason.
