James Boulton, technology programmer at Slightly Mad Studios, confirms their allegiance: “Thrustmaster have been an absolute pleasure to work with, providing all the hardware and technical support we could need to deliver a cutting edge driving experience in Project CARS using Thrustmaster steering wheels and peripherals.”
The release of a new racing simulation game always delivers a surge of adrenaline for Thrustmaster’s teams. The community becomes increasingly active and the demands set by a new automotive racing release challenges Thrustmaster’s range of hardware to be on par with the required levels of performance. Tweaks and adjustments must be made in the race to the finish line.
To meet virtual drivers’ expectations, Thrustmaster is powering ahead like a high-performance car in this busy release period with the release of multiple additional devices including, the TM Leather 28 GT Wheel Add-On and T3PA-PRO, extending an already substantial product roster. However, power is only useful when combined with exemplary car control. In this case, the combination is delivered by the excellent relationship with the Slightly Mad Studios’ teams, who have started to integrate Thrustmaster’s racing wheels and Thrustmaster’s R&D department, which always strives to deliver an optimum driving experience, to the members of the racing simulation community.
To better address the options offered by Project CARS, Thrustmaster relies on immense power under its hood, thanks to its multiple technologies – from the performance of the industrial-class brushless motor and the accuracy of H.E.A.R.T. (Hall Effect AccuRate Technology), to the quality of the materials used. Pit stops will provide an opportunity to enrich the T300 and TX models with other devices from the racing controller ecosystem, such as the TH8A gearbox, the T3PA and T3PA-PRO pedal sets, the FGTE and F1 detachable wheels, and the brand new TM Leather 28 GT Wheel Add-On – fully clad in leather and metal! This will ensure that Thrustmaster teams benefit from the highest-performance specifications in Project CARS, and can make the most of all the possibilities offered by this release.
