Should last a lifetime,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thrustmaster TH8A Shifter (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, PC - Windows 8, 7, Vista & XP) (Video Game)
I've had the TH8 for a couple of months now and it's almost boringly good. It feels robust, well built and feels like it'll last forever. However, even at the maximum adjustment, there's not nearly enough friction to stop the gearshift being too easy and fast (shatters my suspension of disbelief that I'm lapping Monaco in a real Ferrari :) ). I bought it to replace the original, sadly demised, G25 gearstick and it's better in terms of quality, feel and noise. But I do miss the useful buttons it had. A thought that didn't occur until I plugged it in.
Thrustmaster, if you're listening, I'd make one simple change. Create a blanking plate for gears 7 and 8. I still can't get used to 4 vertical slots when using it (it also looks a little odd).
But despite this, I'd heartily recommend.
