TS-PC RACER Ferrari 488 Challenge Edition: Celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Ferrari brand with Thrustmaster!
Officially licensed by Ferrari for Windows, the TS-PC RACER Ferrari 488 Challenge Edition’s wheel is a 9:10 scale replica of the Ferrari 488 Challenge wheel and measures 12.6”/32 cm in diameter.
With a brushless Force Feedback system, a very responsive 40-watt brushless servomotor and Motor Cooling Embedded system (patent pending), the motor is able to support intensive use during long hours of e-racing competition without fading.
The wheel is designed for racing competition with its 15 built-in LEDs* for tachometer function (RPM), and 2 rotary switches with push function. Its wrapping is hand-stitched and made of the same Alcantara material imported from Italy as that used on genuine Ferrari wheels.
The external Turbo Power power supply features a finless toroidal-shaped design, providing 86% efficiency (vs. 65% efficiency for standard finned power supplies).

Realistic competition wheel design
The wheel is a 9:10 scale replica (12.6”/32 cm in diameter) of the real Ferrari 488 Challenge wheel. Officially licensed by Ferrari, it features a total of 25 programmable functions:
- Faceplate and 2 paddle shifters crafted of black brushed anodized metal
- 15 built-in LEDs for tachometer function (RPM)*
- 2 directional pads (D-pads with push function)
- 2 rotary switches with push function, and 8 action buttons
Designed with hand-stitched wrapping crafted of the same Alcantara material imported from Italy as that used on genuine Ferrari wheels.
The LEDs feature will be directly supported in the racing games during the course of 2018.

Brushless servomotor technology (40 watts)
To provide a high level of performance, precision and comfort for highly-demanding PC gamers, Thrustmaster developed the TS-PC servo base.
The industrial-class brushless 2nd-generation motor ensures 50% more dynamics, and 4 times greater stall force than the previous generation. Torque is 1.6 times higher than the torque provided by the TX and T300 RS wheel bases.
Very responsive 40-watt motor for particularly dynamic and powerful effects, with enhanced feedback. The TS-PC RACER’s motor provides powerful 40-watt brushless Force Feedback and incredible velocity (dynamic torque): from long stall curves (STALL mode) to super-responsive zigzags (DYNAMIC mode).
Motor Cooling Embedded system (patent pending)
Maintains dynamics with the new motor by ensuring that there is no overheating, while remaining silent. Provides 50% more dynamics and 4 times greater stall force than the TX and T300 RS wheel bases, plus heat dissipation via monophasic cooling.
H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) + F.O.C.
Field Oriented Control algorithm: H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) provides 16-bit resolution (65,536 values), while the new F.O.C. algorithm dynamically optimizes the response to intense torque demands. The motor responds dynamically and swiftly to increased torque requests, while switching and reducing power drops.
External Turbo Power power supply
External Turbo Power power supply delivers constant power and massive peak power to instantly respond to ultra-fast requests from the game. Toroidal-shaped to optimize efficiency versus heat at 86%, with a finless design. Peak power: 400 watts!
Fully compatible with the Thrustmaster ecosystem
Compatible on PC with Thrustmaster add-on racing wheels* (Ferrari F1 Wheel Add-On, Ferrari GTE Wheel Add-On, 599XX EVO 30 Wheel Add-On Alcantara Edition, TM Leather 28 GT Wheel Add-On, TM Rally Wheel Add-On Sparco 383 Mod), and with the Thrustmaster racing ecosystem: Thrustmaster T3PA* and T3PA-PRO* 3-pedal pedal sets, and TH8A shifter*.
