My bad. The Italia has been quite hard to find before the release of Project CARS.

Not really.... That's not Amazon, but a seller on Amazon, and one asking way over the odds also. The wheel was 230 at Overclockers a few days ago and this sellers charging 310.

Just pointing out the sudden shortage is 'interesting', really.

As for me, UK based, want to buy from somewhere I trust 100% with returns, given the hardware's dodgy reviews for failure. Hence, Amazon or Argos.

Box are fine and supply most of the larger suppliers with their stock.

GameStop are fine for customer service really don't think you would have a problem with them.
I would of thought any problems just get in touch with thrustmaster UK , it's the same with fanatec wheels as well

We did a random 10 shop check in Germany (a big market for us, thanks guys!) and we found 8 of them out of stock.

i'm looking into getting a wheel as i think i'll eventually need it to have a better experience but i'm looking for some more info on the F458 Italia with the F1 wheel attachment.

Are all the buttons on the F1 wheel including the various rotary dials fully capable of mapping to the project cars controller configs...?

Has SMS run any tests using this F1 wheel?

Any feedback would be appreciated as i dont want to buy the F1 wheel if i cant make use of all the wheel controls. DABS have the F1 wheel on for 90 with the base Italia unit for 220

Speak to a guy called nissan4ever(in my forum friends) hes has tx with f1 rim, n can probably answer your questions :cool:

Bryer

Sadly the buttons on the wheel are duplicated due to limitations in the Microsoft steering wheel protocol!

Hi all, can anyone with the TX wheel tell me how noisy it is? I'm hoping to get one soon but I game late at night, when the wife and kids are in bed, so if the wheel is really noisy due to the FFB it could be an issue.....

Also if anyone has it with a Wheelstandpro does it seem noisier on that?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. So the vibrating from the force feedback doesn't make much noise at all then...

If you were playing in the bedroom next to someone trying to sleep, yes it would probably be a bit noisy but my partner sleeps in the next room as i play in the box room on a playseat rig... I have just asked her and the only noise she hears is my manual th8a shifter changing gear and obviously the game itself if the sound is turned up... Doesn't keep her awake!

I am currently waiting for my TM add on rim to arrive from Germany... Can't wait!

Retro, Dabs stock says "order on request," does that mean they order it from Thrustmaster direct, as they don't want expensive stock sitting on their shelves, or that they have no stock?

I'm waiting for delivery of my Tx from GameStop too.

Just to mention to the others also waiting, have you read about the brake pedal mod?

Basically the brake pedal is apparently a let down. I've ordered parts in the UK to hopefully replicate the mod when I get mine. Google will show you what I'm on about if you've not heard. It's cheap and it's meant to be much better so i'm gonna give it a go.

Loving the game, with a few workarounds, it's the first game to make me buy a wheel anyway. And a Playseat Chalkenge too.

I'm definitely not in the good books at home but whatever!

I would advise you use the money for the F1 rim and buy a set of pedals instead. In fact, this is a general piece of advice for anyone buying this wheel due to the fact the stock set included with the wheel are pretty poor.

Are you trying to tell us Bandai Namco owns Thrustmaster with this statement Ian or did you mean for the Game?

I really rate my T3PA pedal set... But you really do need to use the brake mod that comes with them as this transforms them once you have set it up to your own preference... Before my TX i had a fanatec csr wheel for the xbox 360 with their CSR elite pedals which have a load cell brake... With the brake mod fitted the add on T3PA pedals are as good as the fanatec with the load cell and a Bob shox mod fitted... Although I still have a basherboard adapter kit on order from the states so I can try the elite pedals out on the TM

My tx wheel turned up a few days ago and I am seriously happy with it, the pedals are not as bad as I initially thought and are very usable, the wheel is fantastic and really immerses you into the game, smoothness is amazing and my lap times are considerably quicker as a result, will be getting the t3pa pedals and the shifter at a later date but want the f1 rim first.
Not sure if GameStop still have it in stock but 225 is a good price, I'm happy

Don't know where you're from, but this portuguese store sells much cheaper.

For an easy upgrade it would have to be the T3PA's but if you're lucky you might be able to find someone selling a set of T500's which are fully compatible with the TX and Xbone.

I was fortunate enough to find an unused set on the inside sim racing forums for 100 and subsequently added the excellent Richmotech load cell mod, which if you have the cash is a great combination.
