    With any luck I’ll be able to tell you in a few days. Just ordered the Elite + base and McLaren rim with a playseat challenge a few hours ago and hopefully it all arrives at the beginning of next week and my old ClubSport pedals still work.

    So after about 30 minutes with GTSport so far the verdict is they are great. I did upgrade their firmware with a cheap PC I have around. I’m already lapping a second or so quicker than I did with the controller. I have had experience with a wheel in the past with a Porsche turbo S setup about 5-6 years ago so it’s not totally new to me.

    I’ll be playing around more tonight but so far it was worth what I put into it. Also I wasn’t able to really play AC with the controller myself and the 5 minutes I put into it was way easier to use. I have an Xbox one which is why I wanted this setup and I’ll be messing around with that soon.



    Edit: Getting ready to sit down with it for a while, anything in particular you are looking for @anthonyfa18 ?

    The LEDs on the base do but the screen does not display anything GTSport. Also I’m drawing a blank on the clutch paddles. I’ll check next time I’m on.


    Edit: Alright @anthonyfa18 so the clutch doesn’t work for me. From what I can find the car you are driving in game has to have a clutch pedal and if you use the shifter paddles on the wheel the clutch stops working so you have to have the h-pattern shifter which I don’t.

    Here’s a photo of LEDs blinding me:

    I get ZERO clutch response on Gt Sport from my csl elite/loadcell pedals, i cant imagine the clutch paddle of the McLaren wheel would be any different.

    That's strange, the clutch definitely works in GT Sport.

    The central knob works, as that is controlled by our side (the wheel firmware). The multi-position switches do not; this is something that involves developers making use of our SDK. At the moment, only Assetto Corsa Competizione supports them, and iRacing has partial support (full support coming soon).

    The clutch definitely works, but only on certain cars.

    This allows you to select between different functionality of the two analogue paddles, e.g. Clutch Bite Point mode, or use them as Throttle and Brake.

    That would be counterproductive in regards to the PD-Thrustmaster relationship.
