Realistic competition wheel design

The wheel is a 9:10 scale replica (12.6”/32 cm in diameter) of the real Ferrari 488 Challenge wheel. Officially licensed by Ferrari, it features a total of 25 programmable functions:

-Faceplate and 2 paddle shifters crafted of black brushed anodized metal

-15 built-in LEDs for tachometer function (RPM)*

-2 directional pads (D-pads with push function)

-2 rotary switches with push function, and 8 action buttons

Designed with hand-stitched wrapping crafted of the same Alcantara material imported from Italy as that used on genuine Ferrari wheels.

*TIP

The LEDs feature will be directly supported in the racing games during the course of 2018.

Brushless servomotor technology (40 watts)

To provide a high level of performance, precision and comfort for highly-demanding PC gamers, Thrustmaster developed the TS-PC servo base.

The industrial-class brushless 2nd-generation motor ensures 50% more dynamics, and 4 times greater stall force than the previous generation. Torque is 1.6 times higher than the torque provided by the TX and T300 RS wheel bases.

Dynamic Torque

Very responsive 40 watt motor, generating remarkably dynamic and powerful effects, as well as enhanced force feedback effects. The brushless motor of the TS-PC Racer wheel is distinguished by its powerful force feedback effects and exceptional velocity (dynamic torque), from long curves with a constant radius (STALL mode) to ultra-responsive chicanes (DYNAMIC mode).

 

Embedded Motor Cooling System (patent pending)

Maintains dynamics with the new motor by ensuring that there is no overheating, while remaining silent. Provides 50% more dynamics and 4 times greater stall force than the TX and T300 RS wheel bases, plus heat dissipation via monophasic cooling.

H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) + F.O.C.

Field Oriented Control algorithm: H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) provides 16-bit resolution (65,536 values), while the new F.O.C. algorithm dynamically optimizes the response to intense torque demands. The motor responds dynamically and swiftly to increased torque requests, while switching and reducing power drops.

External Turbo Power supply

External Turbo Power power supply delivers constant power and massive peak power to instantly respond to ultra-fast requests from the game. Toroidal-shaped to optimize efficiency versus heat at 86%, with a finless design. Peak power: 400 watts!
