Thrustmaster TS-PC Racer Review by The Simpit
We already posted a big selection of Thrustmaster TS-PC Racer reviews, but there is always room for one more. This time it’s Shaun Cole of the Simpit who takes a detailed look at Thrustmaster’s mid-range open wheeler force feedback wheel.
Shaun takes us on a detailed product tour and tests the wheel in a variety of different conditions to see how it performs. After some thorough testing, Shaun lists his pros and cons and shares his final thoughts.
The TS-PC Racer Force Feedback wheel is powered by a new 40-watt motor that will provide the Force Feedback system with dynamic torque which results in a better response and more powerful effects. To keep the TS-PC Racer from overheating or power loss, Thrustmaster designed a brand new high-quality low-noise cooling system called “Motor Cooling Embedded” or MCE.
The TS-PC Racer is fully compatible with the entire Thrustmaster racing ecosystem which enables you to fit a selection of already existing Thrustmaster wheel rims to the system. The new Open wheeler style rim features suede grips and a set of wheel-mounted brushed aluminum paddle shifters. The wheel is fitted with six push buttons, a D-pad, and a 3-position push-able rotary encoder. The wheel rotation will be adjustable between 270 and 1080 degrees.
Last but not least, the new Thrustmaster wheel makes use of an external power supply that is specially designed to provide continuous power and a phenomenal peak power (400 watts).
The new TS-PC Racer Force Feedback wheel is available at a suggested retail price of €549.99 / $499.99 (taxes included). Keep in mind that the wheel does not come with a pedal set.
