When you're dealing with tough roads and crucial maneuvering, you need an edge over the competition. The T500RS Racing Wheel from Thrustmaster is a force feedback racing wheel that allows you to immerse yourself in your racing games on your PC, Playstation3 or Playstation4*. The T500RS offers several realistic features, all metal construction and weighs in at a massive 36.4 pounds. In addition to the wheel you will find three pedals, two gearshift levers, a D-Pad, and 13 buttons including a home button for your PS3 console. The angle of rotation of the wheel is adjustable up to 1080° (three full turns), and it automatically calibrates when the power adapter and USB connector are engaged. Adjust the pedal height between four possible positions for the accelerator pedal, two for the brake pedal, and two for the clutch pedal to accommodate your personal gaming style and ergonomic needs. Spacing can be adjusted using the included allen key between three possible positions for the accelerator, three for the brake, and three for the clutch pedal. Using the included allen key you can also adjust the tilt, choosing from two positions for the accelerator, two for the brake and two for the clutch pedal. The pedal set will have the Ricmotech LC500 load cell upgrade kit pre-installed which will increase the pedal resistance to over 70lbs (31kg) and provide the feeling of a real brake pedal. You can install it according to your preferences and position it against the upper or lower wall for different amounts of resistance. The T500RS pedal set features a unique design that allows for a choice of two positions, a floor position (F1 type) and suspended position (GT/Rally type). You can also attach it to a table or desk for ultimate stability during gameplay using the included table clamp. So whether you're gaming on your PC, PS3 or PS4, this wheel and pedal set has what it takes to keep you immersed in the race and take control of the road.

5 of 5 The load cell is well worth the extra cash September 9, 2016
Reviewer: Brian Greenlee from Tennesee  
First I want to thank Frank who answered all of my initial concerns about getting this bundle.   Everything came packaged exactly as it was supposed to and I also had everything updated and installed prior to it being shipped to me.

It took me about a week to get used to the load cell brake but let me tell you.  Now that I have it I dont ever want to race without one.

Get this bundle if you are thinking about taking your racing to another level.  I promise you that you will not regret it.

5 of 5 Great Product May 17, 2016
Reviewer: Ed Brominski Jr from Swoyersville, PA United States  
This is an excellent product that's clearly well designed and built. The wheel provides a real world driving experience and the load cell brake upgrade provides accurate, predictable braking.  On top of that, Frank goes above and beyond with after purchase sale, and assistance with anything sim related.  Highly recommended.

5 of 5 Good buy February 5, 2016
Reviewer: Christopher Culley from Montpelier, VA United States  
Was going to go with a popular cheaper wheel until I couldn't find any in stock. I spent a little more for this wheel and the load cell add on but was worth it. Wheel feels good and brake pedal upgrade is very nice and firm.

5 of 5 Nice upgrade September 28, 2015
Reviewer: Edward Routh from Greenville, CA United States  
Upgraded from the G27, this wheel is more realistic and a pleasure to use.  I would like it better if the shifters moved with the wheel rather than being stationary, but I have adapted.  The force feedback is stout.  When you spin, it is best to take your hands off the wheel.  It has been a nice upgrade and well worth the price.

5 of 5 Upgrade Thrustmaster T500 Wheel and Pedal Set December 18, 2014
Reviewer: Jeff Cypert from Waco, TX United States  
Wow, what an upgrade from my $100 set. The brake mod is a must if you want to drop your lap times. As a rookie I dropped my best time on my first lap with the new setup. The braking is so much more controlled than the standard pedals.
