It's perfect. The larger size is much more comfortable than the standard wheels and gives your fingers extra room around the shifters. The Alcantara is fantastically grippy with the Mechanix gloves that I like to wear using it. A huge upgrade over the leather VG wheel and light years beyond the plastic 458 Italia wheel.
I love it! Great feel. I wish it had more buttons, and I wish the knob on the bottom right was a multi-position switch, not a spring back switch (meaning the switch springs back to center after you twist it up/down). However, you can push the twist button in, so that's a plus. But overall, this wheel is superb! You can always download software that will allow you to assign keystrokes to a combination of button presses if it is that serious, but for most, it probably won't be. The alcantara feel is awesome! The paddle shifters give you a nice positive click. I wish they were adjustable (for me, I have fairly large hands, but I would like the shifters to be just a few centimeters closer to wheel rim). Then again, maybe not, because I would lose the agility of being able to get my hands out of the way of the wheel on those fast switch backs.All in all, again, great wheel! The quality is outstanding. I have only praises for this wheel!
I loved how my Thrustmaster TX One 458 Italia stock wheel felt and the force feedback was incredible.I bought this wheel to upgrade my too small 458 wheel.It looks great but dont expect to feel the road like you did with the stock 458 wheel.I am pondering on whether to return it...EDIT - Now Five Stars! Today magically my FF kicked in and the wheel feels great. Weird it felt like it was at 25% FF the first 3 days. Now its much more like the stock wheel in terms of FF and feeling the road. Reset everything if you have no FF when you install this wheel.
Great wheel for the T300. I have the original Ferrari GT wheel and the leather feels much better than the rubber version. I'm happy to see Thrustmaster is still in the game. They have a new direct drive wheel coming out in the future. Hopefully this wheel will still fit the new version. But if they made the new one with a quick release wheel hub, I wouldn't complain.
The buttons are way too stiff, and the d-pads are difficult to use, would prefer they have a "joystick" protuberance to push on... Everything else is really nice to have, when you're racing F1...
