Here’s everything you need to know about the Thrustmaster T248 racing wheel…
Next-gen hybrid drive system for more realistic in-game racing
Boasting up to 70% more power than previous Thrustmaster hybrid racing wheels. This hands you smoother and more fluid racing dynamics including better overall drivability.
The upgraded hybrid drive system Thrustmaster has developed also means there’s less counterintuitive sensations and friction problems commonly found in other racing wheels.
Upgraded dynamic force feedback – feel every bump, terrain change, turn and more
The T248 features a newly developed force feedback system with three presets (you can also fine tune any force feedback setting to suit you).
This force feedback system is compatible with all games and modifiable on the fly directly from the wheel:
FFB 1: Force Feedback 100% proportional to the force requested by the game.
FFB 2: enhanced Force Feedback, for better skid control.
FFB 3: boosted Force Feedback, allowing users to clearly feel all racing effects from the track (curbs, skidding off-track, etc.).
Thrustmasters’ dynamic force feedback system allows you to feel on-road sensations you’d usually feel in a real race car such as turns and bends, terrain changes and more.
Built-in LED race dashboard display
The T248 features a selection of more than 20 different displays on the built-in screen.
Via the display you can adjust a range of settings (selection of Force Feedback type, the wheel's rotation angle, etc.), or you can select your preferred telemetry information (gear ratio, RPM, gamer’s best lap time, etc.).
25 action buttons – All your controls are within easy reach
Including 2 dual-position encoders (up and down) located on the centre spokes, the T248 features nearly twice as many action buttons as previous Thrustmaster racing wheels (T150 series).
This extensive range of physical and virtual buttons means you never need to take your hands off your wheel, and you’ll always have plenty of choices when it comes to assigning racing controls, in any type of game.
Dual magnetic paddle shifters for lightning-fast gear shifts
Thanks to H.E.A.R.T magnetic technology, the Thrustmaster T248’s paddle shifters allow for super-fast gear shifting, with clear and precise activation feel (30ms response time) to avoid driving errors.
This proprietary technology, based on a contactless system of magnets without any friction, also allows for an unprecedented product lifespan — even with the most intense gaming sessions.
INCLUDED: T3PM magnetic pedal set
Providing truly exceptional, thousandth-of-a-second precision, the T3PM magnetic pedal set includes a 200kg force pressure brake and 4 pressure modes.
With completely smooth motion and avoiding the loss of precision over time experienced by standard potentiometer-based pedal sets, T3PM represents a huge, striking leap forward both in terms of versatility and in-game responsiveness.
The T3PM pedals also feature stainless-steel pedals and an all-metal internal mechanism. The pedal base is wide and weighted for maximum stability. Plus, the base features pre-drilled and threaded bolt holes for all big brand racing simulator cockpits.

If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.
And we’ll (not so) humbly say there’s lots of reasons we think you should shop with us…and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi.

The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5-star service’.
Joe Platt had this to say: ‘Just want to say how awesome the gaming chair is that we bought. Amazing quality, helpful service and the fastest delivery of an online purchase. Arrived Next Day!’
And this from B. Richardson: ‘Purchased an Audeze headset and it arrived inside two days. Thanks for the fast shipping and great service!’
That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you.

‘Officially’ we’re around to support you and help you out with your questions and queries between normal business hours (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm).
