Today we are taking a look at the T500 RS Racing Wheel & Pedals from Thrustmaster, a PC and Playstation 3 compatible racing simulation wheel targeted at the racing enthusiast gamer, plus the very special Ferrari F1 wheel attachment optional upgrade for those that prefer a full F1 setup over the standard GT wheel, or of course for those who want the best of both worlds.
Despite the fact that Razer have a large product catalogue the reality is that regularly they take one model and tweak it for a specific audience, or take an ageing one and bring it up to date.

As graphics hardware evolved, so, too, did the methods that developers use to interact with that hardware.
