Thrustmaster T300 Servo Base Review: The Foundation

12/16/2015 - 01:10

Who would have thought that racing wheels would be so much fun?  I have mentioned this before, but until recently my experience with these products has been pretty limited.  I used a joystick for at least a decade after I started into PC racing...

Thrustmaster Offers T300 Servo Base as a Standalone Product

11/11/2015 - 19:39

Seems we have been on a bit of a Thrustmaster kick as of late?  We are not really complaining as there are certainly some interesting products that the company offers.  The latest product is not new, but how it is presented is.  ...

Thrustmaster T150 Force Feedback Wheel Review: The Gateway to Potential Insanity

11/04/2015 - 21:44

Thrustmaster TX F458 Ferrari Italia Edition Review: Stepping Up the Wheel Game

09/23/2015 - 18:05

Further Impressions and Conclusion

09/23/2015 - 01:30

The Force Feedback Effects on this unit are much, much better represented than the previous F430.  The response seems quicker, smoother, and just more accurate as to what is going on with the road and the car.  The belt and pulley system, which...

The F458 Continued

09/23/2015 - 01:29

There is a lot of flexibility to this particular setup, even though it is one of the lower priced options from Thrustmaster.  The wheel can be swapped out for three other units if a user does not like the Ferrari replica wheel.  Recently...
