New Thrustmaster Driver/Firmwares Released for TX/T500RS/T300RS

Thrustmaster has released some new updates for their line of flagship devices. They have a new PC driver available, as well as new firmwares for the T500RS and TX racing wheels. The driver also adds support for the new T300RS, which is set to come out next month.

The TX firmware seems to have the most extensive updates, including support for the TH8A shifter, which is coming out in August as well. The inclusion of a wheel-based auto clutch is an interesting addition, which allows you to use Manual+Clutch mode in games, even if you don’t have a clutch pedal. For the full list of updates, you can see the changelog below.

To download the updates for your wheel, as well as the new driver, you go to, and select your device in the “Updates and Downloads” section. You can also install the latest firmware for your device via the Thrustmaster driver software.
