Thrustmaster T-LCM Pedals Review By The SRG
Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage reviews the upcoming Thrustmaster Load Cell equipped T-LCM Pedals.
3 weeks ago, some intentional, or unintentional leaked documents and media indicated that Thrustmaster was getting ready to release a brand new pedal set. Soon after, Thrustmaster confirmed that the leaks were showing us a legit Thrustmaster product, and hinted February 13 as the official release date.
So here we are. Today Thrustmaster officially released its new T-LCM Load cell equipped pedal set for the PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
The T-LCM acronym most likely stands for Thrustmaster/Load Cell/Magnetic and sums up the technologies used in the product. Both the throttle and clutch pedals make use of the famed Hall Effect magnetic sensors, while the brake pedal force is registered by a pressure-sensitive load cell that can withstand a brake pressure of 100 KG.
The individual T-LCM pedals are highly adjustable, letting you change the height, pedal angle, and pedal spacing. Furthermore, the product comes with a set of 6 springs allowing you to quickly adjust the feel of the brake pedal.
The Thrustmaster T-LCM Pedal set is available for pre-order at a very affordable €199.99 / £179.99 / $199.99. The product is scheduled to be released on March 26.
Thrustmaster is also offering a few accessories for the new pedal set being:
- T-LCM Rubber Grip – 100% texturized rubber covers for the Thrustmaster T-LCM Pedals pedal set. – €14.99 / $19.99 / £14.99.
- T-LCM Cockpit Adaptor – 00% metal brackets which can help you hard-mount the pedals to your chassis. – €14.99 / $19.99 / £14.99.
- T-Pedals Stand – The versatile pedal set stand featuring an adjustable wall stopper. – $59.99 / €49.99 /£49.99.
The H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) system — contactless technology without any potentiometers — ensures an unlimited lifespan and optimal accuracy in racing sessions: up to 16-bit resolution, representing 65,536 values per pedal.
Adjustable Mechanical Brake Force
The included set of 6 springs allows for a multitude of quick adjustments, allowing you to customize the feel on the brake pedal to your liking. Adjust the pressure force for the best fit with your racing setup (desk or table, Wheel Stand Pro, GT cockpit, F1 cockpit, etc.).
100% Metal Materials
Mounted on a stable, sturdy structure designed with the most experienced racers in mind, the 100% metal pedal heads, attached to 100% metal pedal arms, ensure a good grip in order to optimize the feeling of control while racing.
Up to 220 LB / 100 KG of pressure on the Load Cell sensor
The brake pedal in the T-LCM Pedals adjusts to your gaming intensity and driving style. You’ll get the perfect amount of braking power according to the force applied on the brake pedal.
