Was looking to upgrade from my G29 without spending a ton, the csl dd seems like the only good option now.

CSL DD PS5 bundle(wheelbase,rim,pedals) will probably be about 550-600eur.
TGT 2 price seems to be about 750eur.It just doesn't have any sense to buy TGT 2.


But then again we have Logitech G923 priced at 400eur so anything can happen lol..

Request to Thrustmaster, please sell just the servo base. I don’t need the mediocre pedals or this rim. Same with the T-GT (I) for that matter.
If this is true, your wish will come true.

Me, on June 14th:
The latter abbreviation references a motor industry grading system — Automotive Electronics Council — for electronics intended for automotive applications.

Looking through the press release they mention licensed for PS4/PS5 and GT Sport, but nothing about GT7. Leaves the possibility that this might not be the "official" GT7 wheel unless I missed it somewhere.

Thrustmaster are just milking the cow while they can, abusing the supply chain issues and Fanatec's lack of PS-licensed entry products. They just know that if someone wants to get a wheel right now, he must choose either ****** G923 or some Thrustmaster...

Dick move, but only gives me more respect for Thomas Jackermeier, who phased out all CSL Elite wheels early so that the least amount of people feel ripped off because they went for a worse wheel.

I think it's just that. TM know that they aren't in the same market now. It a three tier game. Logitech at the near bottom, then TM, and Fanatec the the top. Kinda like Chevy, Honda, and BMW. Then you have the Lamborghinis and Ferrari level makers.

So is this is another over priced wheel because it has a transducer that only works on Gran Turismo like the previous one? Do any other titles support that feature?

I get it if your a 99% Gran Turismo racer.. but man..

Video seems legit... box does say Gran Turismo 7 on it, but only in reference to T-DFB

Well t-gt has been out for like 6months,so it could be some replacement for tgt
The T-GT was released in 2017 and I have had one since then. I ordered the first day I could. I love it. I have hundreds if not thousands of hours on it with no issues. well worth the $800 I spent on it.

Hi!

Not sure if this is the right thread, but nevertheless.. Having purchased T-GT II for 750 EUR along with crappy T3PA-GTII pedals set, I would be willing to share my thoughts.

As many of you (at least judging by comments) I was also thinking CSL DD is the way to go, that I had to wait till PS5 version appears and then go the Fanatec way while sticking to my G29. But suddenly this T-GT 2 thing appears on the market and is immediately available for my PS5. I was itching, hesitating like for 2 or 3 weeks, if I should buy this now or just wait.. and wait.. for the "now" holy grail of an affordable direct drive wheels.

I was nervously checking on Youtube reviews for this T-GT 2, but there were only few in Spanish and Viperconcept's. Then finally decided, why the hell wait for Fanatec, then get on the waiting list and at best get my CDL DD Pro during mid 2022, because I want it now. Moreover having considered all the cost there will be for me to get what I want from Fanatec it will not be that cheap as everyone is quoting 349EUR, unless you want to go basic route. In reality it is only starting from 349*, as for me it was CDL DD with a power boost 499EUR + Loadcell pedals 229EUR (CSL Elite) + 359EUR Multipurpose wheel and total was amounting to 1087 EUR and you also add delivery to that and then also a waiting time till release + waiting lists. So I decided why bother I go get the T-GT II for 750EUR to have fun NOW but not wait, trade in my used G29 and buy T-LCM for that money.

End result is fantastic, I'm extremely happy with my new sim racing wheel and great pedal set. The force feedback on this wheel is super responsive and at 100% FFB its a damn killer for your hands, so I run it at 60% all the time and it provides me all sensations needed to race, catch slides, feel bumps, road surfaces and have fun, which to me is the most important aspect. A wheel itself while being a bit on a smaller size, is still a pleasure to hold in your hands, the leather is smooth and soft, wheel thickness is perfect. The base is quiet, barely can hear cooling fan, it only gets hand warm while racing extensively, add to that if TM really did put automotive parts inside to increase the durability of the product then its an additional advantage. Playing GT Sport and WRC9 my GT Omega cockpit vibrates cause of the transducer (it's kind of cool effect). So I don't get why so much hate for the T-GT II, yes its a bit pricy for this set with crappy pedals, yes its not a direct drive, but hey... it's the flagship model of a solid mid range sim racing gear manufacturer, so I assume TM did the best they could to provide me a solid and reliable product, and as a bonus included some T-somethings in it :)))

So if I'd be comparing the two, with Thrustmaster T-GT 2 I got myself Ford Focus RS, with a Fanatec CSL DD some will getting themselves Porsche Boxter or Boxter S if they get a boost kit. So yeah.. if there's someone reading this and hesitating to buy TM T-GT 2, I'd say don't hesitate, its a great wheel, even the T3PA GTII pedal set is somewhat okay to live with, but T-LCM is much better set though.

Thank you for this write up. I had a similar experience. After using the CSL Elite with the loadcell pedals for a few years, also owning the shifter and the handbrake and even the McLaren V2 wheel on the PS4, i sold it all and decided to buy some new gear for my now PS5. I actually bought the TG-T 2 the day after it was released. I knew I needed the T-LCM's for not losing out on a loadcell brake pedal. Then, Gran Turismo and Fanatec dropped the bomb that they will be the official partner of GT. I had to act fast, because I was still in the return window of the T-GT 2. I forgot to mention that at that point, I already had so much fun with the T-GT 2 with the T-LCM (I also bought the TH8A shifter second hand), more so than I enjoyed the Fanatec gear for the entire last year. The Fanatec gear also had to be sent back up to 6 or 7 times for repairs and checks over the past 3 years and after 3 years even the PCB of the wheelbase had to be replaced (alas not under warranty). So, I've decided to stick with the Thrustmaster route for now. Maybe in the future things will change for me, but for now the T-GT 2 combined with the T-LCM pedals are a guaranteed blast to drive from ACC to GT Sport. Can highly recommend it also!

Having started with a Logitech DFGT 9 years ago, then followed PD down the Thrustmaster road four years ago, I’m so heavily invested in TM Rims, shifters, handbrakes and pedals, I’ve got no desire to ditch it all a third time. Sorry, Fanatec.

When my T300 finally makes its final turn (going on 4 years now) I’ll likely get the TGT-II.
