Thrustmaster T500 RS – First Shifter Photo Released
Earlier this year, Thrustmaster successfully launched their high-end T500 RS steering wheel, creating what many consider to be the new benchmark steering wheel for sim racers.
Despite coming with lots of impressive features such as 1080 degrees steering, double belt-drive Force Feedback and an invertible pedal set, the wheel missed a shifter as the unit ships only with sequential gear paddles.
Thrustmaster promised to offer an additional H-shifter later and now, a first shot of the new shifter has been revealed. The photo shows off a neatly-designed H-gated shifter, it will be interesting to see how the additional unit will be connected to the wheel as the T500 RS does not come with a connector for additional hardware. Info on pricing and the availability date is not yet available.
