Description

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.

    Awesome

    Have been playing project cars for several weeks now in combination with the Thrustmaster T300 Ferrari GTE and this TH8A. Don't have a single negative comment other than maybe the price. The shifter consists mainly of metal and therefore very sturdy. You just feel that you have quality in your hands. The fact that you have 7 gears (and an "R") just adds an extra dimension to the game. Also tested it a few times with the game "The Crew" and it works flawlessly here too. The shifter also works with the original pedal set of the T300 (so only 2 pedals, without clutch). A nice extra is that you can, for example, turn a real gear lever on this TH8A. There is also the option to switch to sequential (eg as in Rally Cars) by simply replacing the "H-plate" with the supplied "+/- plate". There are also 2 cables in the box. 1 special cable to connect the TH8A to the handlebar (the T300) and a cable with a USB connection. This last cable would then be to be used on a computer in combination with any steering wheel (PC only!). In case of PS3/4, this shifter only works with the T500 or T300. In the case of Xbox One, you can only use it in combination with the TX Racing Wheel, I think. Maybe there are adapters to use it with other steering wheels.

    Very solid design

    • design
    • Firmness
    • Easy to switch
    • Fits different handlebars
    • Price

    Bought this together with the thrustmaster 500RS. This duo can't be beat.
    The shifter is very solid in terms of construction and can be secured in different ways.
    Also adapting to a semi-automatic is very quick and easy to do.
    The look of the shifter is very nice because of the chrome finish.
    This is also suitable for different handlebars.

    The only downside I could say is that it is on the expensive side.

    great shifter

    I was not familiar with Trustmaster brand products but had read some tests about this shifter. I must say a great product, top quality for a fair price. In my opinion equivalent to the more expensive products such as the Frex shifter that quickly costs 4 times as much. Super addition to your steering wheel, I'm even thinking about purchasing the T500 RS as a replacement for my current steering wheel.
