Hi Everyone ! I just ordered a "Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition" from amazon (US store). The problem is that it comes with a 100-125 V power cord and I need a 110V to 220V transformer ... My question is, does anyone know what is the power consumption (in Watts) of the wheel ? By the way, I just readed on amazon a reply to someone that lost his power cable that a 110V 300W power cable works on the steering wheel .. If anyone can confirm this, problem solved ! I would really appreciate your help guys. Sorry for my bad english. P.S. I'm from Chile and shipping from the US was by far my best option in terms of price and shipment. Nobody sells this product in my country ..
ANDRITSOULAS posted a topic in Sim Gear - Buy and SellHi guys. I am looking to buy the stock t300rs rim. If it is possible in a good condition and no mods. Please logical prices. Just for reference a new rim(t300rs) costs something less than 100euros in TM. Also i would like to buy a Ferrari F1 rim in good condition also. Wanted also a Ferrari GTE or TM leather 28GT rim in any condition. I just want the ''button box'' of the wheel for modding. If there is anyone that would like to sell all/some of them as a set please pm me. . . . . I am from Greece. Thanks for watching
The following is a custom Ferrari F1 wheel I built. The objective for this project was authenticity but this has been quite an undertaking so a bit of the wheel (particularly the back) is still in a prototype stage (although I do consider this entire project a prototype for the next wheel I build). Having said that, it does work. Here are a few of the features: 1) A custom F1-style aluminum 3-bolt electronic quick release. Allowing wheel to be attached to any wheel base (providing custom quick release modification and installation done on base). 2) Authentic mil-spec push buttons. These are not the commonly used NKK/Nnitters that are popular. I didn't like the tactile response of those or lack of authenticity, so went for the same ones used by Ferrari on their wheel. However, I did use a different brand switch for the KERS/DRS buttons as I wanted a specific 'spongey' response on those. 3) Authentic toggle switches. The exact same same used on the 2011 Ferrari F1 Wheel 4) Custom clutch assembly (currently not installed as disassembled and still in early prototyping phase). 5) Sli-F1 display with customized housing. 6) Custom rotary knobs. All rotary switches (including center knob) work but are not currently wired to the harness. 7) Custom single-piece shifter assembly (prototype). 8) Led indicators on either side of and under 'PCU-6D' display. 9) Custom carbon fiber body providing extra rigidity. Notes: To begin the project, a Thrustmaster F1 wheel was used as the base, but most of the components and pieces were of little use and discarded and the base itself was largely reshaped. Little expense was spared for the sake of authenticity (the toggle switches and push buttons alone where $113 each and $35 each respectively). The rigidity, construction, and overall feel of the wheel are solid and feel like that of an actual F1 steering wheel. That's it for now. Will post more pics down the road when I continue the project.
