Thrustmaster 599XX EVO Wheel – Review by RTA
After 5 months of good use, RTA Motorsports reviews the Thrustmaster 599xx Evo wheel addon and discusses how it has held up after all the races and abuse. During the review, RTA performs a talk & drive session on the Assetto Corsa Nordschleife behind the wheel of the Ferrari 599XX.
The 599xx Evo 30 wheel is a 8:10 scale replica of the Ferrari 599 racing wheel and is fitted with the Thrustmaster Quick Release system making it fully compatible with the Thrustmaster T500 RS / Ferrari F1 Integral T500, T300 RS / T300 Ferrari GTE, and TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia steering wheel sets.
The wheel measures 11.8”/30 cm in diameter and is made out of a brushed metal steering plate while the rim features a high-end designed and hand-stitched Alcantara wrapping. Furthermore, the wheel features two large, 5.1”/13 cm-tall wheel-mounted paddle shifters, six action buttons, 3-position rotary switch with push function and a multidirectional D-pad. The 599xx Evo 30 wheel only weighs 1.2 kg, wich will improve the responsiveness of the Force Feedback system.
The Thrustmaster 599XX EVO 30 Wheel Add-On Alcantara Edition is available for $179.99 / €179.99 / £149.99.
