    Hi guys I've currently got a Thrustmaster TMX with the 3 pedal T3PA pedal set as an add on but I know for a T500RS wheel thats for sale for around £200, it doesn't come with any pedals but thats no big deal to me as like I said I've already got pedals, what I'd like to ask is the T500 that much better than what I have and also is £200 a decent price for just the wheel on its own?? I got the tmx as its also compatible with xbox one but to be honest I hardly use it for xbox so that's not an issue either i just dont want to shell out £200 if its not going to perform much better.

    Not a personal experience, but I've always seen T500 described as stronger and faster, but less smooth and less detailed than the T300/TX (due to it using a brushed motor compared to the brushless one in T300/TX).

    Yes the T500 is a step up indeed. And Martin is right. The T500 is stronger in FFB output compared to the T300. :thumbsup:
