      Hi All, We created an Amazon store that's pretty basic and currently only for U.S. shoppers. If you purchase something from it and then other items through Amazon, we make a small commission. It won't cost anymore than Amazon normally does but will help support our show and website and would be greatly appreciated ! You can get to it by going here : http://www.isrtv.com/isrtv-amazon-store/ Thank for your support !

    • I've been very pleased with my TX, and the only issue I've had, after almost three years of use, is the Xbox One breakaway connector became faulty. The wheel wouldn't connect to the PC or Xbox One (or rather, they wouldn't see the wheel). I replaced the shorter piece of the cable with one from an old Xbox 360 wired controller (they're the same connector), and it corrected the problem. Some people claim they can feel a subtle "notchiness" with the TX. On my unit, if I turn it very slowly and concentrate on what I'm feeling, there is some of that, but it's so minimal, I don't notice it while I'm actually using it in a simulator. I bought my TX, used, from someone on this forum, and it was already about eight months old. Though I know and trust Logitech products (I've owned a few of their wheels, including a G27), the TX really does have a much better feel, with significantly stronger force feedback, and no center deadzone. You can turn the wheel ever so slightly, and you can feel the FF motor is engaged. It's also much quieter, as the Logitech wheels have a "geary" sound to them--so loud in fact, I've been able to hear it through owner's microphones while I was racing them online. Logitech should retail the G920 (and G29) for about $200 to $225--I just don't think it's worth $300+. Even then, I think the "cheaper" Thrustmaster TMX and T150 wheels are still slightly better for $200. Even if their pedals aren't as good as the Logitech pedals, the wheel bases are still slightly better. Add a set of T3PA pedals for an additional $90, and you get a much better wheel and pedal set for less than what the G920 and G29 wheel and pedal set will cost you. ...and then, for $170 more, you can get a TX bundle (better wheel rim and pedals), and it's definitely a much better upgrade. My complete setup includes the GTE, 599XX, and Formula rims, T500 pedals (exactly the same as the T3PA Pros), and two TH8A shifters (one is "permanently" configured as a sequential, and the other is used for H-pattern and as a hand brake) as well as the original TX pedals and 458 rim.
    • You are quite correct... the word I used "Unique" was not accurate. Before I explain what I mean, let me just say that I am a great fan of Martin's shifters and have brought many sets over the years.  For quality and service he is hard to better What i'm offering is a little different... Firstly the way the shifters mount to the Formula rim.  My shifters just re-use the bolts that hold the original shifters in place, so you simply remove the old and bolt on the new.  Martin's solution requires that you take out the main wheel bolts and replace them with longer ones.  Martin's is a very robust method, but more complicated. The other reasons why i'm selling mine are mainly cost.  In the UK the exchange rate has increased the cost of Martin's shifters.  Mine will work out far less expensive for people in the UK.  It's also good to have choice and competition. If you visit the website and watch the video I have made it will show just how easy these are to fit.
    • Is that different from Martin Ascher's offering http://www.ascher-racing.com/shop/paddle-shifter/  
    • Great. I'm putting together a paddle unit for a Sparco p260 wheel to use on TX base and keen to use U.K. parts where possible
