Hello,
I have a question about the difference in the standard pedals of Thrustmaster F430 - T80 - T100 - T150 - T300.
Here at home I have got a Thrustmaster F430 Force Feedback and thinking of replacing it for a Thrustmaster T150 or a T300.
The pedal bases al look the same and I want to know if there is any difference in these, except some have metal plates on it and others plastic. What about the internal parts or feeling from these pedals?
Is the replacement worth the effort from a F430 to a T150/T300? Any budget for a T3PA pedal set is not there at the moment.
And has the T3PA so much better parts or feeling except for the third clutch pedal, or is it just the clutch pedal and the bigger base plate? (if the wife agrees in the future :p)


excuse me for my bad English.....:o

The t150/t300 are terrible pedals, plain and simple. Save your money and get a set of t3pa pro's, they are absolutely worth the money. You are getting a clutch pedal, stiffer brake, and more accurate gas pedal feel.

It's like having two of the pedals you get with sewing machines, except they're shit, way way way too close to each other, and have no mass at all so they slip all over the place. And those weren't even that bad by the standards of the day (at least they were fairly accurate), I played Grand Prix Legends with those things.

I want to replace my F430 to a T150/T300, just wanted to know if the standard pedals are the same as my old F430, or are they slightly better?

there is no budget for de T3PA or the T3PA-pro, just asking if the standard pedals on the T150/T300 are an improvement to my old F430 pedals.......the base plate looks the same, also the plastics.

They look pretty much the same. I'd assume they are going to preform pretty much the same also. You can always get a set of used t300's off eBay. I see them go for $20 all the time. Iv even seen guys give them away if you pay the shipping in a few other forums. But you best bet is a used set of t3pa pro's, they can be had for $100

same design but The t150 has the same force on both accelerator and brake as the t300 has a stronger spring resistance on the brake and the t150 plates are plastic as t300 are metal. The 300 are better imo though i'm still saving for a t3pa... Id like a clutch

I'd save some extra pennies and get the T300 set that includes the Ferrari wheel and t3pa pedals ;)

T3PA pedal feel is marginally better, you also get the conical brake mod to try, it does make the brake pedal harder to press, I don't really notice that until you are towards the end of the travel though, it may help a little with non ABS cars, the biggest point is the third pedal even without a shifter it has benefits ;)
