On the border between a mid-range and cheap wheel, we find a fantastic buy for beginners and veteran players alike. The Thrustmaster T300 RS has a brushless force feedback motor, rotates to 1080°, and is officially licensed by Ferrari to give you an 8:10 replica of what you would feel when driving a 599xx EVO.
