Top Customer Reviews
Pedals are plastic, but have a heavy weight to them and feel absolutely solid. The brake mod goes amazingly far for realism. Honestly, I have used/owned a couple of wheel setups with load cells and this matches them at the very least. If properly adjusted, the brake mod feels like an actual brake pedal. You will have slightly better performance with top of the line load cell pedals perhaps, but for this price point you won't get one that is noticeably better. The throttle, clutch, and brake pedal all have different resistances from each other. They are not adjustable (aside from the brake) but you can feel a difference, and all three feel like real world pedals. They also allow for you to modify the pedal face placement (left or right, and with the throttle, also up or down) and most aftermarket car pedal faces will actually bolt to them. So you can get some that suit the size of your feet better if you desire.
FFB is very strong. I had to turn it down in fact as at times it would actually start to pop my wrists and shake the rig. At 50% it's still amazingly strong. When you get it fine tuned you really feel everything. Forza 6 on the other hand, at no fault of the wheel's this is not the case at all, but I am not reviewing Forza 6 so the reason I bring that up is if you play it exclusively, you'll want to wait for Turn 10 to adjust on their end. Their wheel support right now is awful so if you get it and play, and the wheel underwhelms or makes the car uncontrollable, that is the fault of Forza. It works perfectly with Project Cars, also have tested it with iRacing and Assetto Corsa on PC but seldom use either so I didn't go in depth. Seemed at least on par with Project Cars.
Also, you WILL need a rig of some sort with this. Even if just a wheel stand. It has clamp attachments and bolt on points as well, but the FFB is way too strong for just using on your lap or a TV tray or something. I have a full on sim rig and like I said, on full power it would literally shake it like mad and actually would pop my wrists to the point it felt like they'd break. That's not an exaggeration, it really is that powerful. So don't even bother getting it unless you have a rig, will build/buy one or at the very least get a good wheel stand.
I have no doubt Turn 10 will fix their wheel compatibility issues. This isn't the only wheel they have problems with. Literally any wheel with FFB is almost unusable with it. So again, don't judge this wheel off of their terrible support of wheels. But for now, if you play Project Cars or the above mentioned PC sims, this wheel has no equal right now. Not even my Fanatec (that went back as it was within return range) could compare to it.
Enter the Thrustmaster VG TX Leather Wheel/Pedal set for Xbox One. This set is truly excellent! The Thrustmaster servo base itself is heavy and is quite substantial. The force feedback and vibration are quite strong (I had to turn the force feedback down a bit as it was just too much to get the wheel turning at 100% FFB in Forza 6). The servo wheel allows you to directly change the steering angle of rotation (i.e., 270, 360, 540 or 900 degrees) and steering sensitivity right on the wheel itself. See the Thrustmaster website to download supplemental instructions on how to do this as its not contained in the included manual. Importantly, the Thrustmaster pedals allow for fine brake adjustment using an included conical brake mod that screws in just behind the brake pedal. Using this mod allows you to achieve the brake pedal feel of your choice. Although the included leather racing wheel and pedals feel great, you can switch out the wheel and/or pedals with a number of alternative offerings from Thrustmaster if you so desire. (I’ve got my eye on that Thrustmaster Ferrari F1 wheel, just wish it was labeled Mercedes Petronas instead!)
For those that are interested, the following are the advance wheel settings I’m using with this Thrustmaster set in Forza 6:
Steering Axis Deadzone Inside: 0
Steering Axis Deadzone Outside: 100
Acceleration Axis Deadzone Inside: 0
Acceleration Axis Deadzone Outside: 100
Deceleration Axis Deadzone Inside: 0
Deceleration Axis Deadzone Outside: 100
Clutch Axis Deadzone Inside: 15
Clutch Axis Deadzone Outside: 50
Handbrake Axis Deadzone Inside: 10
Handbrake Axis Deadzone Outside: 100
Force Feedback Scale: 75
Wheel Rotation: Varies by car and preference, but I use 360 degrees and 540 degrees quite a bit across many cars.
Also, under the Assists menu, I have steering set to “Normal," no ABS, and STM on (no TCS though).
My only, and I mean only, gripe with this set is that in order to update the wheel’s firmware, you can’t just do it through your WI-FI connected Xbox One. Instead, you need a PC, not a Mac, computer to download the update then sync it to your wheel. It is always recommended that you update the wheel’s firmware upon receipt and check back regularly for updates as Thrustmaster periodically publishes updates to refine it’s products features and/or add new features. I hope Thrustmaster one day offers firmware updates directly through the Xbox (preferably) or at least offers Mac-compatible firmware updates.
(P.S. – I also tried the overpriced Logitech G920 for Xbox One, which I returned as it was smaller/too much like a toy and did not offer brake adjustability. See my review of that set separately.)
Three stars based on friends' experiences with working wheel sets - they really like it - and my disappointing experience; I don't like it
