    Thrustmaster 599xx Evo or F1 rim ?

    Evening guys and girls , I am after some help regarding which additional rim to choose for my T300.
    I have always fancied the F1 rim because I like to do a lot of racing in the LMP2 cars and this looks suitable style wise for them but I also very much like the look of the 599xx rim and Iím struggling to decide.

    Anyone that has one of the above please tell me your experience, also am I right in thinking there are a few additional buttons on the F1 rim that you donít get with the 599 rim ?

    All help appreciated.

    I have the 599 rim and its fantastic. I do wish Thrustmaster would bring out a GT3 style rim though. The problem with the F1 rim is its meant to be really plasticky and very cheap feeling.

    The F1 has additional buttons, but not with XBox. That mode is only working with a PC. And as UKHardCore23 wrote, its a terrible lightweight plastic toy.
    The better F1/LM wheel from TM is that from TS-PC Racer.
    That looks good, has weight and lies perfect in the hands.
    Maybe you get one @ ebay or other marketplaces.

    Yeah I wish theyíd bring a rim out like they use in some GT3ís , almost like the shape of the F1 rim.
    What I like about that shape is it looks right for the prototypes and also F1 2018 is well suited to it , a plastic cheap feel is off putting though if thatís the case.

    What bothers me about the 599 rim is how it will feel with the lmpís and F1 cars.

    The ends can be finished in suede and I have a friend who works with carbon so I could easily cover the front plate in that although they do an option for carbon effect on the site.

    if you have a good metal worker with the right tools, you can also mod original Momos or others to fit on the Thrustmaster Buttonbox.

    Ricmotech sells such pieces
