- Officially licensed by Ferrari®
- 15 built-in LEDs for tachometer function (RPM)
- 12.6"/32 cm in diameter
- Hand-stitched Alcantara® material imported from Italy

The TS-PC Racer racing wheel is an accurate 9:10 scale replica of the real world Ferrari 488 Challenge car, officially licensed by Ferrari®. The wheel features 15 built-in LEDs for tachometer functions (RPM), face plate and 2 paddle shifters crafted of black brushed anodised metal, as well as hand-stitched Alcantara® wrapping imported from Italy, the same material as that used on genuine Ferrari® wheels.
The TS-PC Racer servo base features a 40-watt motor for dynamic and powerful effects, plus enhanced feedback. Brushless Force Feedback and incredible velocity (dynamic torque): from long stall curves (STALL mode) to super-responsive zigzags (DYNAMIC mode).
The Motor Cooling Embedded system (patent pending), maintains dynamics with the new motor by ensuring that there is no overheating and while remaining silent. It provides 50% more dynamics, 4 times greater stall force and heat dissipation via monophasic cooling *.

H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) provides 16-bit resolution (65,536 values), while the new Field Oriented Control (F.O.C.) algorithm dynamically optimises the response to intense torque demands. The motor responds dynamically and swiftly to increased torque requirements, thereby offsetting and preventing losses in terms of power.
The external 'TURBO POWER' power supply delivers constant power and massive peak power, to instantly respond to ultra-fast requests from the game. Toroidal-shaped for optimised power efficiency of 86% (with just 14% heat generation), with a finless design. Peak power: 400 watts!
