Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider (Xbox One) Review
The second wheel designed by Thrustmaster for the Xbox One is the Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider (Xbox One), which should prove extremely versatile for any gamer out there. If you are a fan of racing games, you know you can’t properly play such a game using a simple gamepad. This is why a good quality racing wheel is the thing you need when racing games are your passion. You don’t have to break the bank when purchasing one, and the current option is among the best to consider when it comes to the price to quality ratio.
The Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider (Xbox One) is an officially licensed product by Ferrari, and if you’re a fan of the brand, you definitely need this next to your Xbox One console. The classic red color that we all know that it’s linked to Ferrari has been employed in the design of this wheel. The side areas of the actual wheel are red, whereas the rest of the wheel, its body and the pedals are black. The wheel, however, does not just feature a Ferrari logo in the middle. The wheel is actually a 7/10 replica of the wheel you would find on the dashboard of the Ferrari 458 Spider. The 28cm diameter of this racing wheel should be more than enough for a realistic feel.
The red areas of the Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider (Xbox One) wheel are made out of durable rubber, which is going to add some good years to your wheel’s lifespan. On the wheel you will find 12 buttons that you can use while gaming. Almost all of them can be customized, aside from the ones like the Xbox Guide button. The wheel sensitivity can also be customized; you can use one of the four available presets if you don’t want to do the dirty work, but you can also create your own preset, if needed.
A linear resistance model is used in the design of the Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider (Xbox One), stemming from the wheel base. This has been achieved through the use of the patented Bungee Cord system. The wheel is automatically going back to the center position once you have to straighten it when getting past a curve, and the rotation angle is 240 degrees. It may not be that much, but if you’re not willing to invest in a full blown wheel that might not be suited for you, this is a great way to explore gaming with a wheel.
The body of the Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider (Xbox One) racing wheel can be easily secured in place on a desk thanks to the built-in clamps. This way, you don’t have to worry about being too gentle when driving, especially in a fast paced game. The pedal set only features acceleration and brake pedals; each of them can be adjusted on its own, and progressive resistance is provided as part of the feedback. The footrests are wide, so your feet will feel comfortable at all times.
