Introduction

The Thrustmaster T500RS Racing wheel is arguably the best gaming racing wheel simulator device in the world, arguably better than the already world famous G27 steering wheel from Logitech. The T500 RS is a great steeling wheel for any racing game, but has specifically been made for Grand Turismo 5, the world most realist simulator racing game. The Trustmaster T500 RS comes with outstandingly high quality build and materials and is shockingly realistic. Ourselves at HardwareLOOK are definately telling you this is the best gaming racing steering wheel on the market to date, and as Thrustmaster say themselves which we completely agree with “The new benchmark force feedback wheel!” let’s take a look why...
