Thrustmaster TS-PC review: For the racer that wants to go the extra mile

High-end steering wheel for enthusiast racers

Installation

We tested the TS-PC Racer together with the 3PA-Pro pedal set that can be connected to the base directly. If you want to use other pedal sets, for instance, pedal sets that come with Logitech’s G-series steering wheels, you can use the optional DB9 adapter. It’s also possible to use a different pedal set via its own USB connection, which you then plug in directly to the computer.

Mounting the wheel to a table or cockpit is fairly simple using the supplied screw-in clamp. Four thin rubber strips on the bottom of the base make sure that there is no sliding when it is clamped down. If you want to mount the wheel a bit more permanently, you can use M6 bolts to screw in to the two screw holes present on the bottom of the base.

Software installation for the TS-PC Racer is fairly easy. After downloading the most recent drivers, all you need to do is plug the USB connector into your PC. The wheel will turn around 1080 degrees to calibrate itself and it’ll be ready for use. Depending on the game you’re playing, you might need to go into your driver settings to set how the pedals operate and the maximum rotational angle. Just like other Trustmaster products, you can rotate the TS-PC a maximum of 1080 degrees, which might not work that well for some games. For instance, if you want the amount of rotation of the in-game wheel in F1 2017 to correspond with the amount your wheel turns, you need to set the angle to 360 degrees in the driver.
