The Thrustmaster TH8A Shifter makes your racing games a bit more realistic. Choose from two shifting styles: use the "H"-shaped grid for 8 gears (7 forward, 1 reverse), or the "+/-" grid to shift gears sequentially. To use a cliché: for a lifelike racing experience you should switch over to the Thrustmaster TH8A Shifter. The interior, the stick, and the clamp system of the TH8A are completely made of metal. The gearbox also has a wireless, magnetic sensor instead of moving parts that wear with contact, so you don't have to worry the box will wear. An added bonus: the 13cm-high stick has a detachable knob and is compatible with the knobs of real gear sticks, like the ones you buy in a "real" garage.
