What customers say about "Key Specs"
Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition
  • The wheel feels fantastic. This is the hands down best place to start if you want to build a nice racing simulator in stages.
  • The force feedback is phenomenal! The steering is precise, the pedals are great.
  • I'm still learning how to make use of the buttons but I would love it without any buttons.
  • I love this wheel the force feedback is great. Highly recommend.
  • The wheel was good for 6 months and then the wheel started "calibrating" uncontrollably when attached to the xbox one.
Thrustmaster TMX Force Feedback Racing Wheel
  • This force feedback wheel is perfect for me and my family.
  • I love how this wheel feels and I can really get into the feel of racing.
  • The feedback really is not as smooth as a car, seriously, what is though.
  • Nice steering wheel action with a nice feel of the force feedback.
  • Problem is, the force feedback completely stopped working.

What customers say about "Connection"
Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition
  • Works great and flawlessly, tested on PC and Xbox One.
  • The wheel works well on an xbox one and an xbox one s.
  • The connection between the wheel base and the power cable is super sensitive.
  • Its just can't connect to Xbox and computer. I tried plug and unplug many times.
  • My problem is when it hits the left it must be enough movement to make the power cable lose connection.
Thrustmaster TMX Force Feedback Racing Wheel
  • This works perfectly right out of the box connected with the Xbox one.
  • Works with the T8HA shifter and the three pedals for Xbox and PC (the shifter uses a USB cable for PC and connects to the wheel base for Xbox).
  • Base is easy to connect and won't fall off of the surface you're using it on.
  • Works perfect with PC, easy to connect, almost real life feeling.
  • The only thing I would change is making the USB cable longer, because my xBox isn't right in front of me.

What customers say about "Features"
Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition
  • The pedals are great, and it is all awesome looking and heavy duty.
  • The pedals are made of good materials and has a pretty decent gase for them.
  • Mounting screw holes for both pedals and wheel work perfectly.
  • No clutch pedal, and the braking is not progressive.
  • The pedal base is light and coil move around on the floor.
Thrustmaster TMX Force Feedback Racing Wheel
  • The paddle shifts are great, the force feed back really makes it feel pretty awesome.
  • Easy set up, easy take down, can use it to get into and out of the game and to navigate inside the game.
  • The pedals are actually better than you may think on first glance.
  • The paddle shifter feel is very nice. They are much nicer to the touch.
  • My biggest gripe is the pedal set. It’s very light and flimsy, it slides around on the carpet with very little effort.
