    Is it just me or is there an issues with supply of the Trustmaster T-GT ??? I keep looking for sales but all the stores I have look at including amazon, bestbuy Walmart and Newegg have not had stock for some time now,
    can this be because of covid 19???
    Or
    Is it just a problem here in Canada ???

    Very annoying indeed, wonder how many months until we can buy a set of the t-lcm's.
    Especially through a certified source that can provide a valid warranty.

    Not just a Canada thing. Haven’t been available in the States since the first of the year.

    Hopefully they got something new and better coming... bundled with t-lcm's.
    Would really love them to take my dang money...

    Maybe, but they will make that over 1000$ and at that point your better going with a csl elite,
    Trustmasters need to work on pricing

    Is some way It doesn't surprise me... I was fairly lucky to get mine on Sale here in the UK from eBay New & Unused for around £400 around 7-8 Months after It was released. The Wheel's easily held It's value at around the £550 Price point for It New here. I remember It going on sale around Xmas 2018 for around £499.99 but I've never seen It go lower. But like you said may be shortage across the board for the Wheel!

    Covid-19 is likely to be impacting supply.

    You really shouldnt buy a thrustmaster T-GT because of a lot of things , first of all , if the wheel breaks down after warranty you cant just buy a new wheel , no no , you have to buy the entire set again , I had a Fanatec csl elite before I changed to the T-GT and I have regreted making that dession since

    From my understanding, the T-GT was discontinued

    It could be just discontinued at that store.

    They're still listed on the Thrustmaster website, but as 'out of stock' which suggests to me it's an supply issue from China. When the T500 was discontinued it was removed from their website.

    It's still on the TM site and still available to pre-order for when the next shipment comes in here in Australia.

    I can't find anywhere in Americaland to buy it new for MSRP. It seems it really has gone. Even the TM website 404's when you click buy.

    I asked this question to one of the biggest sim racing retailers in Australia and just received this reply below.

    Edited to add (in case anyone needs to translate to their own language):
    Q: Is the T-GT going to be available any time soon?
    01/02/2021

    A: Hi there! Thank you for your question, it is much appreciated.

    It has been discontinued recently so we think they are going to do an updated version maybe for PS5 :)


    Bad news and possibly good news.

    wow so the t-GT is done ??? That a bit odd on trustmaster part. Why would they discontinue a product that fast when you can still get t300rs GT Eddition ???

    That combination is how it should have been released in the first place.

    Great news! Hopefully it returns at a lower price point, with a wheelbase-only option, or with some new parts (PS5 theme wheel rim, new pedals, etc.) I will be a little disappointed if its just the exact same product at the exact same price. As long as its been MIA, they could at least make some minor revisions.
