Yet when it works, it's amost perfect. As for shift knobs, it looks like aftermarket knobs will fit, but I coun't find a stock shifter to fit. They all just slid over the grooves.
-Looks really pretty. No plastic exterior
-Looks bigger irl. It's nearly 2X bigger than th8a shifter (in height, length, and width)
-Offers sequential shifter or HB modes.
-Expensive. The functionalities that it offers are defininitely not worth 270 dollars.
-Hard to mount on a table. Mounting positions are quite limited unless you have a dedicated wheel stand or cockpit.
Well, I still love it. If you are a die hard sim racing fan, it is worth considering. It makes your setup a lot cooler and just looking at it makes you feel like you are Tommi Makinen. If you are tight on budget and need a hand brake, I would suggest fanatec hb or some analog flight simulator stick. If you need a sequential shifter, buy th8a. If you don't really care about its cost and want it to be part of your sim racing collection, I highly recommend. It is going to be the prettiest, yet most sturdy hand brake or seq shifter you will find on the market at the price range.
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
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.
The only gripe I have with it on the PC is that you have to connect it using USB rather the more convenient port on the back of the Thrustmaster wheel. I asked tech support about that, they said it was something to do with a limitation of buttons a controller can have in Windows. Personally I think it's just laziness from how the previous shifter, TH8RS, was set up to work which was only USB.
