THE TH8 RS BY THRUSTMASTER: AT LAST, A REALISTIC AND FULLY-ADJUSTABLE GEARBOX!

To meet the expectations of numerous motor racing fans, Thrustmaster is launching the TH8 RS – a high-end, separate and versatile gearbox. The device’s two configurations – H-pattern and sequential – enable drivers to select their favorite driving style.

Realism and versatility:

Some virtual drivers cannot imagine shifting speeds otherwise than with a specific gearbox. With the TH8 RS, which boasts unrivalled technical innovations supported by pending patent applications, Thrustmaster now offers a device that is realistic enough to satisfy even the most demanding drivers.

At first glance, the TH8 RS looks realistic enough to be fitted to a real car. It features a 13 cm (5.12 in.) tall stick with a removable knob; the stick is compatible with real-life universal gear shift knobs. The TH8 RS includes two interchangeable shift plates, each suited to a specific configuration – “H-pattern” (7 gears plus 1 reverse gear) and “Sequential” (pull the lever towards the “+” mark to gear up, and push it towards the “–” mark to gear down).

Total adjustability:

To allow users to freely adjust the TH8 RS to their convenience, the position and the rotation angles of the shift plate and clamping system can be adjusted by 360 degrees. The removable clamping system, optimized for any type of support, is also open to customization: it is suited to both table tops and shelves (1 to 55 mm thick) and cockpits alike (built-in “screw threads” are located under the TH8 RS). Gear strokes can also be adjusted (via a downloadable PC application and the device’s internal memory), as well as the gear shift’s resistance.

Cutting-edge materials and technologies:

The internal mechanism, the lever, the outer housing and the clamping system are 100% metal. This robust design significantly contributes to the extremely realistic in-game sensations delivered by the TH8 RS.

Hall Effect AccuRate Technology

Thrustmaster has also taken care to grace the TH8 RS with unrivalled precision, by including H.E.A.R.T (Hall Effect AccuRate Technology) technology featuring magnetic sensor, without any potentiometer or tact switch – and therefore, without contacts –, for an unlimited product lifespan. In addition, the firmware can be upgraded to offer all foreseeable evolutions, assuring users that the TH8 RS is here to make a lasting impression.

The TH8 RS with USB connectivity is compatible with the T500 RS racing wheel on PlayStation3 (a list of compatible games is available on the Thrustmaster support website) and with all currently available racing wheels for PC!

Key Features:

Extreme realism:
  • Shifting gears feels just like in a real car
  • 13 cm tall gear stick with knob
  • Detachable knob compatible with real universal knobs

Ultimate versatility:
  • Unique design (*) enables 2 driving styles by using the two interchangeable shift plates provided: "H"-pattern (7+1) and "Sequential (+/-)"
  • USB connection:
    • used with a PC, the gearbox is compatible with all racing wheels and games on the market that support multi-USB and gearboxes
    • used with the PS3, the gearbox is compatible with racing wheels (including the T500 RS) and games (**) that have been developed to be compatible.

    For committed racers, the TH8RS is a great "mainstream" offering for when you simply have to have a stick shifter but don't want to pay the really high prices of some of the 'specialist' racing equipment makers. Pleasingly solid metal construction, rock solid table clamp, and a really good shifting action that mimics a real car gearshift.

    Switching between the 8-speed H-pattern and sequential is perhaps the only downside as it involves unscrewing the top plate and replacing it with the supplied sequential plate. Could be annoying if you want to change regularly, but this is the only real downside with an otherwise excellent design. Although some versions are listed as "PC" or "PS3", there doesnt appear to actually be any difference; the unit is supplied with a USB cable and the so-called PS3 version works quite happily on a PC.

    In summary: Looks great, performs as good as it looks. You won't be disappointed.

    I highly recommend this shifter - it is solid, robust, and feels like it will last a long time.

    I use it alongside my G27 and it is a noticeable improvement, although I do still have the Logitech one plugged in as I make use of the extra keys on it.

    Works well in Game Stock Car, rFactor, rF2, and Simbin series games.

    Note - my only criticism is the price that is currently being charged here on Amazon. In May 2014, it was displayed by Amazon for around £97. By the time I came to buy it, the exact same item being sold directly from Amazon had unfortunately shot up to its current price of nearer £130, for me a wholly unreasonable increase.

    I therefore searched elsewhere, it took me a while but I found it for £106 including shipping.

    Sorry Amazon, but that sort of price difference does not make sense to me, and it stopped me from buying from you on this occasion. Of course, this comment is no reflection on the product itself, as it is clearly a quality built item. But I have to mention that the price rose steeply and suddenly and by a considerable amount, whilst it is possible to buy it much cheaper if you shop around.

    got this just hours ago after a speedy delivery and its more than exceeded my expectations, gears fall into place as this shifter can just read what i am doing. a word of advice to anyone who is buying this for euro truck simulator 2 it will not work unless you have steering wheel with a clutch pedal as it requires an axis to use the h-shifter mode

    The TH8rs may be expensive for what it is but it's worth it. It's well built asthetically good and has a brilliant feel. Shifting from gate to gate feels nothing less than a real car. It's almost if it reads your mind a must have for any simracer or someone who wants a realistic experience.

    This shifter has exceeded my expectations by a country mile, I upgraded from a logitech G27 to Thrustmaster T500RS and this beautiful shifter, best thing Ive ever done, has taken racing simulation to the next level and the amount of in game settings etc this wheel and shifter seems to get is also great, PS4 games will work which is greatness if the game makers have added the wheel support, which Driveclub have and so have Project Cars, very exciting times, roll on October and November, have no worrys about parting with your money for this, the sequential shift plate is also great, and Ive put a 8 ball pool ball as my shifter knob as you can change the gear knob it has a 9mm thread, took me ages to find that info out, i measured it and it measured 8mm but it is 100 percent 9mm

    Really superb piece of kit, worth every penny even though the price isn't exactly cheap :) At the beggining I thought I will be missing gears, especialy 5th and 7th, but I;ve maybe done it twice. It's designed really well, changing gears is really pleasant and easy just after 15 minutes of playing. It won't make you faster during the races, but it definitely will give you more fun and enjoyment from the game. What striked me the most was the ability to mount it just the way you want it. I won't write a full review in here because you can look for it on the internet, so you can see just how many options this gearbox gives you.
    So far I'm really happy with it because it makes games much more challenging and fun :)

    The shifter arrived surprisingly fast -it took two days from purchase to delivery to come in Greece- and well wrapped.

    Its built like a tank and i really liked the solid feel when in h-pattern mode.The sequential mode feels ok and gives a positive yet silent operation.

    For the price and the quality you simply cant go wrong.

    Recommended purchase for any sim racer imho.

    Ive yet to test it with my PS3 but i believe it ll work great.

    for the price around the £59 and free shipping for this product it is just fantastic!
    I works superb in the two simulators I work with, iRacing and Project Cars. I The product it self is really tough and feels great, won't even be thinking of buying another H-shifter for a long time.
    Thanks Amazon for a good deal ;-)
