Oh, and then there’s Thrustmaster’s legendary reliability to consider as well - if you know what I mean.
Some slight misinformation in the article, the MFD is mapped by default, its mapped to pushing in the Yellow Dial (Not turning it)
I still have my T500RS on one of my older rigs, but I find it very hard to go back to now that I'm used to the T-GT. For GT Sport, it is a significant upgrade and worth it if you can afford it.I currently use a T500RS and enjoy it, the FFB feels good in GT Sport, but I also haven't used any other wheels for comparison. I wonder what kind of upgrade the T-GT would be over my current wheel if it took a dump? The biggest criticism that I read about the T-GT are the pedals, but the T500RS pedals work well and can use them with the T-GT if necessary.
I didn't mention it in the article, but from my understanding the external turbo-shaped power supply largely fixes the main issue with T300 reliability.
Unfortunately no. You would need an CPX Adapter but they're as rare as hens teeth at the moment due to being discontinued. http://www.basherboards.com/CPXQuestion: Would the stock CSL Elite Pedals go with the T-GT? I have the normal CSL Elite wheel and pedals, and looking at this review, it seems that the pedals are letting the T-GT down, so I'm thinking of doing a Fanatec/TM combo for the best results.
Yeah I really like mine 👍. It is much better than my old T500, but that's been an excellent performer as well. I've been waiting for the next version of the CPX adapter to be released, but as that could still be a long way off, I'm thinking of getting this conversion kit (to fix the 'meh' brakes ) http://www.ricmotech.com/Load_Cell_Kit_for_Thrustmaster_Pedals_p/rmt-lc3.htmThat's a big shame. Such a setup would be very hard to beat in the right hands. Still, I hope I get pleasantly surprised when I get my hands on the T-GT (despite the meh pedals).
In general, a wheel helps with consistency even though in GTS there are crazy fast and consistent DS4 drivers.this wheel would eventually make you better if not more precise/safer on the track?
Maybe in your country, but not in mine. While I consider the Podium series will be a great product and I may look to go that way in the future, atm it's far more expensive, just the (PC and Xbox One) base is $1600 AUD with no pedals, wheel or extended warranty. It could easily run twice the price of the T-GT ($1200 AUD at full price) with the complete kit.Jeeez, the Fanatec Podium DD1 (for PC and Xbox One) is 840 without VAT. That puts TM's pricing into perspective.
If I were considering this wheel (which I'm not) then I would definitely wait to see how Fanatec prices the Podium Racing Wheel (for PS4).
