Two-Pedal Set

Two metal pedals are integrated directly into the cockpit for total stability during high-speed gaming. The metal pedals feature a long range of travel, inspired by the shape of the pedals on the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. The brake pedal features magnetic resistance for enhanced realism.

Streamlined Cockpit

The Ferrari Wireless GT Cockpit is streamlined with an adjustable metal structure--it's folding and transportable with a built-in carry handle, for easy storage. The adjustable, rigid metal structure offers an infinite number of possible positions according to the user's size (adult/child) and seating type (sofa/chair). The 2.4GHz wireless system features a 10m+ range with no latency, and 50 hours of battery life with 4 AA LR6 batteries (not included). The wide, weighted base (23.15 lbs in total) creates optimal stability, and the position locking system is ultra-efficient and easy to use.

Replica Ferrari Wheel

The cockpit wheel is a 28cm, 7/10-size exact replica of the Ferrari F430 wheel. The ultra-precise wheel with new H.E.A.R.T magnetic sensor technology delivers 12-bit precision (4096 values on the wheel’s rotation). Sequential Up and Down gearshift levers are crafted of metal for Ferrari GT-style driving.

The genuine "Manettino" dial has 5 backlit positions, to configure your wheel directly in the game (driving sensitivity, programming system, etc.). The wheel's rubber-textured grip offers optimal comfort.

The wheel is 100% programmable, with internal memory. It's also detachable, so the cockpit takes up minimum space when stored.

H.E.A.R.T. (Halleffect Accurate Technology)

H.E.A.R.T. (Halleffect Accurate Technology) is the name of the new technology developed by Thrustmaster to reproduce movements made on a product in games. It relies on magnetic--and not mechanical--3D (Halleffect) sensors, placed in different locations according to the product in question. The precision made possible by the use of this technology is significantly higher than that provided by standard technologies. Another advantage of this system is that, by eliminating all friction, it guarantees zero mechanical wear for permanent precision that won’t decrease over time. The level of precision is also enhanced by the absence of any dead zones--even the slightest movement made by the player results in a reaction. Actions in games are therefore more linear, smoother and without any untimely jolts.

Product Description

Give your customers the ultimate in gaming technology with the Thrustmaster Ferrari Wireless GT F430 Scuderia Edition Cockpit. Featuring integrated high-precision wheel and pedals for PlayStation 3 and PC, this unit is streamlined with metallic colors to mimic the Ferrari 430 Scuderia "Musetto". With a wide, weighted base for optimal stability this wheel has an ultra-precise wheel with H.E.A.R.T. magnetic sensor technology.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brake Problem June 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Buying this item is worth it for hard core car race gamers. Unlike the other same platform where you have to find a sturdy desk then mount it, this Thrustmaster Ferrari Wireless F430 Cockpit is an all-in-one and can both be used on PS3 & PCs. Within a month of enjoying this expensive toy, the brake pedal started to feel weird that game play is affected. Since it was still within warranty, I mailed this back to it's HQ in Canada (they don't have one here in the U.S.). They fixed it and mailed my toy back to me and I continued enjoying this toy for a couple of months more. Just recently, that same problem popped up again and since it's out of warranty - i might have to fix this myself. Fun is 5 stars, quality 3 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for smaller kids December 8, 2010
I've been searching for a steering wheel with pedals and a supporting beam, but for kids as young as 4 year old and 36 inches tall. There are plastic wheels securing steering column to small base to put between kids thighs for Wii (controller insert type), but non for PS3. Also I didn't want to build a frame for my kids that will grow out of it in matter of months. So I kept searching for many months, until I found this set.

I was very happy that with steering wheel column in most compact mode. My youngest boy (about 3 feet tall) can sit on a kids chair, with hands on the wheel and feet on both pedals! So cute seeing this is possible! And this set will even allow someone over 6 feet as well.

The whole unit looks pretty robust, which appears to be mostly metal for the steering column and the base. This is also why it's kinda of heavy (which is actually good). It is a beautiful set.

The wireless is nice and portability is an extra benefit to take to relatives house. there is no force feedback as this is run on batteries - not important for me as this was for my younger kids.

The next most important thing is game compatibility. The buttons and pedals do map to controllers (not custom steering wheels). Standard mapping fit in some common games like GT5 Prologue, GRiD, NFS variations. Some games have button remapping support, so these games can work with this steering wheel/pedal set. But simple/kids games like Cars Race O Roma don't have in game mapping function, so I used the mapping function on the steering wheel itself to map accelerator and brake/reverse to the pedals. I sent questions to support (in Europe) and got response back within few days for mapping to different games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic June 2, 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had it for about a month now and totally love it... Works on all of my PS3 games, some were harder to configure than others but overall a breeze. Dirt 3 is autosynced so nothing for you to do then turn it on :) Also, the assembly was a breeze.. No exageration there... I'm so bad at these things generally speaking and was worried I was going screw up or take forever. It literally was ready to go in 5 minutes. If that... I do wish it had force feedback but the feel of the wheel and the love of having connected pedals all in one sweet package makes up for the lack of FF. I'm psyched I got this and don't regret spending the money...

5.0 out of 5 stars Ferrari cockpit makes racing games more fun November 28, 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Purchased this as a birthday present to myself. The metal pedals and paddle shifters are a nice touch. Also has a heavy base and is very sturdy. The screws work well to adjust and lock in any position. It took 5 minutes to put together and after a quick run down of the instructions to set it up I was "driving." Works great with Gran Turismo 5. Overall very satisfied.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great idea but questionable quality January 22, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have always respected thrustmaster as the very best quality in joysticks going back decades as i have been a gamer for over 30 years. Their f16 joystck was identical to the real thing except a real fighter stick only moves a fraction of an inch. I flew a real military grade simulator once many years ago. Thrustmasters quality of heavy duty construction was undeniable. You could really punish it while playing without fear of breaking the stick.
I purchased the f430 scuderia edition driving set from costco on black friday for 199.00. They no longer carry it. It arrived and took 5 minutes to setup comfortably. There was a very evident looseness in the steering wheel to main shaft. The wheel seperates from the shaft of the base for ease of transport. The whole set is heavily weighted but can still walk on you a bit during spirited use.
The looseness i had was due to poor quality chinese construction. I complained to costco and they arranged for a replacement. The replacement was somewhat tighter but not as i felt it should be. I still wanted to keep it anyway so i hooked it up. The unit worked well for 2 minutes or so then failed to work with the ps3 via wireless connection. I repacked the replacement and sent that one back. I am going to send back the first one too. The unit is a great idea but the manufacturing quality is suspect. The wireless usb plug in on the first model was poorly made and cockeyed where it joins the ps3. It functioned though it looked like 2-3 cents were spent on making it. As the replacement set failed to work with the ps3 after a few minutes usage, the problem was probably there. I hope thrustmaster quality control in china gets better because this model is worthy.
All control buttons are programmable on gran turismo 5 and it is great fun to use.
