Yes, exactly it. Thrustmaster TH8's gearshifters are pretty solid, and I suppose their pedals are too.



Rock solid Jacob,i have mine setup GT style,you will not be let down with them,and the whole unit is very heavy as it is all solid metal :top:

Can the TH8 shifter be used as a sequential shifter?

Yes it can Timo, though it won't "click" into position but just hit the end of the travel.

The best review:

I had a strange issue with that at our BTCC Donington round, which caused me to DNF in the 2nd heat. Suddenly couldn't change up.

Never had any kind of issues with the H-pattern at least, which I'm using 99% of the time.

For me the best sequential shifter around (Including bang for buck factor) is the DSD one, sadly they seem to not have it available at the moment until a new production run is done. But that shifter is simply awesome, with a positive click when engaging gear and solid as a rock.

Got the T3PA-Pro pedals home today already! They look brilliant, I can't move them with only my feet, which I can with the old G25 pedals. Ordered the adapter I need to make them compatible with my wheel, should arrive in good time before our Indy 500.

My stuff to race and fly.

Always my old good G25, but I modified the pedals. Out the plastic base, and suspended pedals.

And here to its right place, stuck on the metal trunk. I speak about pedals of course, not the right place for the wheel, I'm not an elf. :D

I always wondered why people invert gas pedal, too. I get it with brake and clutch, but several fun-to-drive oriented manufacturers (BMW including) have had the gas anchored in floor for decades. It's also better for heel'n'toe.

My workplace with Logitech G920. The pedals are very inconvenient. They often slip on the floor, and it is not possible to fix them because of the table and the fact that the wall with the window is too far away, and I myself am 150 centimeters tall. Therefore, I have to place the pedals close to me, which often causes cramps. But I'm used to it.  :top:

And the steering wheel needs to be constantly removed / setuped on the table, since this is my student workplace, too. I'm studying to be a lawyer.

I also don't have enough power to push the brake pedal from G920, so I use the clutch pedal as a brake.

My rig has been upgraded during the last 2,5 years. It's still the same wooden construction, but there are several improvements. Some are minor, some rather important.

- For more comfort I got a much better seat from an e83 BMW X3. I believe that seats from road cars are way more suitable for simracing than bucket seats. Also, who would like to spend hours in a bucket seat while truckin' from New Mexico to Washington Wink

- After nearly 11 years with my bulletproof Logitech G25, I bought a much stronger and smoother Thrustmaster TS-PC Racer. This is by far the most significant (and most expensive) upgrade. Sometimes it almost feels too strong, especially when my body was extremely weak after 5 months in hospital.

- I kept the G25 pedals and modified it with a progressive brake spring. Although it's not a load cell, it makes a huge difference. This was further modded with additional spring to make it even stiffer, but that was removed, again because of my weakness and partial paralysis.

- I bought an old tablet and installed Sim Dashboard on it. This app is awesome, I have a customized screen for each game I play. It's very helpful for getting live fuel consumption data, for example.

- To get back to racing, I had to attach my left leg to the brake pedal. So I bolted an old IKEA shoe to it. It worked well, but I might remove it soon, as I drove my first road race without my foot in it at Phillip Island, yay! Cool  

- I added a floor, as it helps to get in and out of the rig. Plus some tiny improvements here and there. A carbon foil on the G25 shifter, a BMW gear knob, tablet and keyboard holder, cup holder (very important Wink  )... and a super fancy Nurburgring sticker :D

I'm quite happy with it as it is. There's no chance to get a Superultrawide monitor or triples due to lack of space (and frankly, the 21:9 ultrawide is fine for racing), the rig itself is solid enough, so there's no change needed either. The only thing I'm considering is a buttkicker of some sort. The Buttkicker Gamer 2 is quite expensive (some 300€ plus software) and it seems to be quite loud. Does anybody have some experience with such devices?

Un peu de cable management ferait du bien. :langue:
Sinon, beau matos, on dirait qu'il y a du watercooling derrière l'écran. T'es sur un boitier de bench?

these are old Asus ROG motherboards I recently separated from them. I made room. Otherwise, I was overclocking a dozen years ago.
