Hello guys! I am not pretty new to Sim Racing, but absolutely new here. After getting back to Assetto Corsa, and other Simulators. like ETS and the upcoming pCARS2, and going to regularly play them, I want to upgrade my wheel to a better one. At the moment I am using my old G25 on a Wheelstand Pro. But I am contemplating for a Thrustmaster many years by now. The T500RS to be more specific. But after talking to some more experienced players, they would recommend me the T300RS +T3PA over the T500RS. Reason: The T300 FFB may be a bitt weaker, but better effect-wise and more direct. Now I am a little bit unsure, and don't know what to research exactly. At Gamescom I drove with a Thrustmaster T-GT on GT-Sport. That wheel felt like I was driving a real car. I was absolutely overwhelmed, how good Sim-Racing could feel. As I am not really that professional (by now) I wanted to ask in a place where such professionals may be and want to ask you guys, what I should choose for my wife, to get me for Christmas T500RS or the T300RS+T3PA. The cost is nearly the same. A T-GT is by far too expensive, and useless for what I would use it. My thoughts: - I think I like the size of the wheel of the T500RS. I want something more realistic, not toy-ish like in size. - I am unsure if I like the fixed Paddles. Cars that use paddles often only have less turn, than cars that use a shifter. So I don't know if it will irritate me, after turning the wheel for 180° and accidentally shift up instead of down. I am going to use my G25 shifter with the USB standalone Adapter (for the beginning) - Many people tell me that the FFB effects on teh T300 are better and more direct, than the ones on T500. - Hopefully they aren't too weak or weaker, compared to my G25 Thank you very much for reading that wall of text and sharing your thoughts.
