ThrustMaster TS-PC Racer Ferrari 488 Challenge Edition Wheel PC TSPC 2960803

by ThrustMaster

Realistic "competition" wheel design

  • 9:10 scale replica (12.6”/32 cm in diameter) of the wheel of the real Ferrari 488 Challenge car, officially licensed by Ferrari®.
  • Face plate 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 buttons with push function + 8 action buttons = 25 programmable functions in total!
  • Hand-stitched wrapping crafted of the same Alcantara® material imported from Italy as that used on genuine Ferrari® wheels.
  • Thrustmaster TS-PC servo base, and detachable Ferrari 488 Challenge wheel with metal face plate. Ecosystem-ready.
  • 2 large, wheel-mounted sequential paddle shifters (5.5”/14 cm tall – 100% metal – Tact switch with life cycle exceeding 500,000 activations).

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

    Powerful brushless servomotor Force Feedback base
    Very responsive 40-watt motor for particularly dynamic and powerful effects, plus enhanced feedback.
    The TS-PC RACER’s motor provides powerful 40-watt brushless Force Feedback and incredible velocity (dynamic torque): from long stall curves (STALL mode) to super-responsive zigzags (DYNAMIC mode).

    Motor Cooling Embedded system (patent pending): maintains dynamics with the new motor by ensuring that there is no overheating and while remaining silent. Provides 50% more dynamics, 4 times greater stall force and heat dissipation via monophasic cooling**

    H.E.A.R.T and F.O.C.
    Field Oriented Control: H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) provides 16-bit resolution (65,536 values), while the new field oriented control (F.O.C.) algorithm dynamically optimizes the response to intense torque demands. The motor responds dynamically and swiftly to increased torque requirements, thereby offsetting and preventing losses in terms of power.

    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 for optimized power efficiency of 86% (with just 14% heat generation), with a finless design. Peak power: 400 watts!
