Thrustmaster TMX - new entry level FFB wheel

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Christian Militzer, Apr 14, 2016.

  1. Hey guys,

    Anyone heard the news? Thrustmaster soon releases a new entry-level FFB wheel, which should be around 200 € according to some press.

    http://www.thrustmaster.com/press/e...rce-feedback-xbox-one-windows-less-170-pounds

    It will be compatible to PC and XBox One, offers 900 ° of rotation, a pedal set with 2 pedals. The rim reminds me a little bit of the GTE wheel and has a diameter of 28 cm. "The motor features a mixed belt-pulley and gears system with metal ball-bearing axle. The result is a balanced combination of performance, robustness and precision. With 12-bit resolution – i.e. 4096 values on the wheel’s steering axis – provided by an optical sensor, this racing wheel also offers extreme precision, delivering highly realistic racing sensations."

    So it seems like this should be a equivalent to the DFGT - if not even one class higher. I don't know how it will compete against the T150, which is in a similar price range but we will sure find out ;)

    Any thoughts?

    Best

    This is basically the same as the T150, just with 900° and XBox One compatibility instead of PS4. Not more different than a TX is to a T300.
     
  3. Makes sense, but they should rethink their product terminology... ;)
