Great add-on to the Thrustmaster TX wheel for the Xbox ONE. I had mine set-up within a hour, including drilling new holes in my sim setup and installing the shifter. If you have already upgraded your TX Wheel to V47 of the firmware, you are good to go, just plug this into the wheel and race. I started up Forza 5 thinking I had to find where to make some changes for this to work but right off the bat it worked as advertised.

Shifter itself is of nice construction, mostly metal with little plastic. As I did not use the clamp system, I cannot vouch for that, I hard mounted mine with the metric screws (not included) it calls for. Shifting action is nice and firm, no great pressure is needed to shift. Shifting feels natural as you get used to it, only issue is with the small throw and so many gates (8) that it happens you end up in R instead of 6 or 2nd instead of 4th on a downshift, etc. Just takes some getting used to.

Only drawback for me is cord length. For my rig it needs to go to pedal area and then up to the wheel. Just wasn't long enough to make it all the way to be tie wrapped nice and neat, had to leave some hanging to make the run.

Shifter is a must have for any rig. It's made the experience leaps and bound more fun. I gave it a 4 star because I usually have to disconnect and reconnect my power supply so the shifter works properly but it's only a minor inconvenience. I hooked up an 8ohm puck to it (transducer) and it made the shifter really come alive. You can feel, what would be tranny or drive shaft of your car, vibrate as the RPM's go higher and higher. It does a great deal for in game immersion. Must buy for any rig.

Much higher quality than the G27 shifter I was using. Smooth and quiet operation, mounted easily to my Obutto Ozone cockpit. Was plug and play as well.

Work great for American Truck sim, Project cars, Assetto Corsa and in Dirt rally I switch to sequential mode and us it as the hand brake.

Great product, I have a tx wheel and it works great together(xbox one). Just remember in order to use the shifter you must download software from tx.thrustmaster.com onto your pc or labtop ( you want to download updates for the wheel as well as the shifter) Once you do that run the wheel update first it will prompt you to plug the wheel to you pc. Second run the shifter update ( dont plug in the shifter until you are instructed to do so) your pc will update both pieces to make them in sync . Now its ready to use on the xbox one. Note* this can not be done with your xbox, you must use a pc or labtop.

Update: I have gone back and forth with Thrustmaster, and after a month the shifter is working and they fixed it! They sent me the proper wires and all is well. This is a superior product, even better with a custom Hurst shifter knob! Seth from GTplanet custom built the Hurst for me and it went from good to insane! The movements are much shorter and accurate.

Worked for two months, used only once and awhile. Now it does not work. Tried to return through Amazon and am being told to contact Thrustmaster. Ugh. I will update and let you know what they do for me.

Awesome shifter! I have been using it now for a few months and so far nothing wrong with it! It was as easy as plug and play with it as well. I use it with the G27, as the shifter that comes with the G27 is way to short for my liking. It's also plasticly feeling. This dude is metal and feels like a real shifter in your hand 5/5!

I Always like Thrustmaster products
My first shifter from Thrustmaster TH8RS Ordered in 3 Nov 2011 to used with T500RS

My First Ordered for TH8A in 3 Oct 2014, I waited for more than two months,
Finally in 21 Dec 2nd Ordered completed

TH8A + T300rs in PC only connect via USB and in control Panel shown T500rs Gear Shift , and in PS3 same PC only via USB
with PS4 T300rs connect directly to the wheel and XBOX one with TX wheel same PS4 connect to the wheel

I feel a little better than TH8RS especially with H shifter and sound better
in PC TH8RS for Seq & TH8A for H shifter
in PS4 Driveclub shifter Doesn't work just waiting for Gran Turismo 7
in XB1 for Forza 5 & Forza Horizon 2

My wheels T500rs, TX, T300rs

I uploaded one image TH8RS with TH8A

I hope TH8A available for everyone.

What i am using: t300 rs servo, tx servo, vg tm leather wheel, t3pa pro, and now the th8a shifter.

This shifter is a great addition for adding fun into the racing sim. Just like the clutch in the t3pa, i used to think a shifter was "too hardcore" for me. Luckily i was wrong, the shifter adds a layer of immersion and common sense interaction for racing. Surprisingly i got better by using the shifter vs the paddles. The added control of gears and paired with the clutch just makes for a more dynamic fun shifting.

I dont know about realism because i dont have the reference to comparw, but this shifter is adding lots of fun to my racing hobby.

I would reccomend this for those that are playing a lot of racing sim, because it is pricey and is better appreciated after having some "mileage " on racing sim. I started with the stock tx servo and upgraded at my own pace. Each upgrade brought tremendous improvement and i was able to appreciate/enjoy the difference. This is my first shifter and im surprised at how easy it is to use. Built quality is just top notch
