Update and Test:

Thrustmaster has combined the next-generation technologies into their newest PC racing wheel, the TS-PC and are offering it with this unique Ferrari Challenge replica wheel rim. This wheel offers the PC racer the opportunity to realize better race track performance. The user will experience a better range of sensations through the steering wheel leading to better driving performance.

Thrustmaster has incorporated a new and stronger brushless motor which produces incredibly dynamic and powerful force-feedback effects. The force-feedback has been optimized to take advantage of the higher dynamic forces available from the motor and has added hardware to maintain this performance throughout long racing sessions.

There is a new and more efficient cooling system to keep the motor at its peak operating temperature during successive moments of peak demand. The result is 200% the dynamic response and 400% greater stall force when compared to Thrustmaster's previous generation technology.

The sensor precision has also been improved by way of a new algorithm that boosts the accuracy of the current H.E.A.R.T. system. The current system uses a remarkably accurate hall-effect sensor to read steering input, resulting in a highly accurate 16-bit signal. This new algorithm will capture finer details of steering input to improve the racing dynamics beyond the current implementation.

To keep a powerful wheel like this running optimally a new power supply had to be developed. The new TURBO external power supply is capable of 400 watts of peak power to provide the wheel with all the juice required to articulate the fine details this new wheel is capable of delivering. This power supply is 5 times more powerful that the power supply available to other wheels on the market.

This TS-PC wheel is mated with a Ferrari Challenge racing wheel. The new wheel is a 9:10 scale replica of the 488 Challenge car. It includes 8 buttons, 2 rotary buttons with push function and two directional pads with push functions for a total of 26 programmable functions. The wheel also features an Alcantara grip and 2 shift paddles of metal construction. Prominently placed tachometer LEDs make sure you never miss a shift.

This wheel is fully compatible with all Thrustmaster Ecosystem components which includes a wide range of additional wheel rims, two pedal options and the bulletproof 7-speed shifter.

5 of 5 Impressive force feedback, quality materials May 11, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
The TS-PC impresses most with the quality and variation of the force feedback.  The feel of the car and road fades into the subconscious mind nicely helping me to think about driving, and not about the equipment I'm using;  exactly what I had hoped for.  The wheel has a premium suede cover, solid feeling switches and buttons, and very easy to set up.  The only thing I would like to be different is for shorter travel with the paddle shifters to more closely mimic current real-world cars.  The paddles work flawlessly otherwise.  I am currently desk mounting with the included clamp (hope to install it on a proper rig soon) and find it holds very well, but allows some shifting of the base if you push the steering wheel toward the screen in a moment of action.  This won't be an issue for those of you bolting it to a sim rig.  A super value overall,
