    Yes that’s all I was thinking when I saw DCC, my model trains. Oh well shows my age I guess.

    Mmmm, I don't think it's a DD wheel. But every time I post my thoughts, I seem to be wrong.

    It needs to be a DD wheel really, Really happy with my T300 but very tempted by the Fanatec CSL DD even if it means new pedals/wheel.

    T-LCMs are fairly new so I don't imagine anything new coming in that area. Also I can't quite see how the name of T-DCC would lead to anything pedal related.

    I was daydreaming ;) Yeah it’s probably not a new set of pedals!

    Haptic add-on should be doable!

    My guess:

    "Thrustmaster-Direct Control Center"

    What that means, I haven't completely decided yet.

    Good find.

    Later next year some customers will report:

    "Thrustmaster, we have a problem".

    As the article suggested, DCC should be just a translation to the old roman number 700. So, the T-700 is coming. And maybe it is a DD one.

    Maybe the T-700 is a DD wheel.


    It's June 3. :nervous:

    Wasn't the TGT labelled as a T700 at one point?

    The Readme doc for the T-DCC will be in Rich Text Format.

    The T-DCC image looked an awful lot like belts so this supposed "real time force" abbreviation seemingly hinting at direct drive doesn't add up.

    The image behind this one looks very similar to a CPU, so I guess whatever this is, it'll be the brains of whatever's coming.

    Could be two wheels...or something else.

    Thrustmaster took over Radio Télévision Français.

    It looks like a chip from a CPU or a GPU. Is Thrustmaster going to make a CPU or a GPU?

    Wouldn't care unless they were launching a new generation of reasonably priced wheels, like $300-$400 dollar range. Some newer, better, hopefully more robust tech to replace the T300RS would be news. Otherwise.. yay, more pricy sim rig hardware that I would never remotely consider buying, even used!

    First thing that popped into my head is the text message chain I'm in where we share a picture of a car in the wild and posit different possible meanings for the letters on their license plates. All submissions 100% NSFW.

    Rich Text Format. :D

    Hopefully it reduces latency whatever it is, 1000 Hz USB polling rate will be a good start.

    Fanatec CSL DD reviews are due out today, and pre orders open this week and TM are releasing stupid tease pictures.

    TM your missing the boat.
