I am in the process of returning this product to Amazon. This is my second F430 FFB Wheel, and the jury is out on this one. When its working its great, but if it can only take a couple of months of the use it was designed for, I'm not too sure.
12 Months on and I'm trying to return the fifth one I think. Amazon need to look at what Thrustmaster are supplying. I get the impression they supply the ones that Thrustmaster consider to be not quite up to their Quality Control checks, ie seconds. Various buttons have failed, the latest one is the 'UP' paddle, which is a tad frustrating in a racing game. Intermittent aint the word. I'm now going to try and get my money from back from Amazon, I'm not holding my breath!
