The 'Thrustmaster T300RS GT Edition' is a next generation steering wheel officially compatible with the PlayStation®4-exclusive title 'Gran Turismo Sport'. The T300RS GT Edition, an officially licensed Gran Turismo racing wheel, is built around perfectly harnessed technologies developed by Thrustmaster – including an industrial brushless motor offering full force feedback and 1080 degrees of rotation. In terms of hardware, it is compatible with the PlayStation®3, PlayStation®4 and PC.
The biggest news for the 'Thrustmaster T300RS GT Edition' is the implementation of the metallic 3 pedal set with the accelerator, brake and clutch pedal: this was the most requested feature by users of the previous 'Thrustmaster T300RS'. Accelerator and clutch pedals are adjustable in height and spacing. The brake pedal has progressive resistance and comes with a conical rubber brake mod.
Continuing from the Thrustmaster T300RS, the T300RS GT Edition combines an industrial brushless force feedback motor and a newly designed 1080 degrees dual belt system to achieve more realism and smoothness, as well as providing quieter sound during its operation. This is a steering wheel weighing a solid 1.2 kg offering stability and providing an adjustable rotation range from 270 to 1080 degrees, reproducing sensations of road surfaces and various vehicle dynamics during gameplay. (Please note 'Gran Turismo 6' supports a rotation range up to 900 degrees and does not support 1080 degrees).
In addition, the precision is achieved by Thrustmaster’s exclusive H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology®), featuring a contactless magnetic sensor that provides 16-bit resolution, for 65,536 values on the wheel’s steering travel. It is also possible to perform firmware upgrades through a PC, leaving room for additional feature improvements in the future.
