This is the full review of the Thrustmaster MFD Cougar Pack by The Simpit.  This is a button box that is completely configurable in game.  There are two displays included in the pack giving you a total of 56 programable buttons.  The Cougar pack was designed after real cockpit controls and comes with pre printed cards to easily remember your button assignments.  In this video we use this flight button box for racing and see how it works on the track for us.

Great looking piece of kit, would be cool if someone came up with an lcd panel to fit in the middle you could put your own button map on or even to show telemetry etc.

Hey everyone, I've had some requests for these button panels from some of my customers so now I have some in stock. I am splitting the sets and selling them individually as well as in pairs. Most guys have told me they prefer that option since they really only need one.

Thanks for the info shaun. FYI the thrustmaster support site does host a leaflet design app for this but as of now it is non functional. I called support on this and they said the app has not been upgraded to the current version of flash but will be sometime in the future. I have been working with something along the same lines as shaun with photoshop. If I get to looking right I will post the steps with some pics.

 I loved the look of this so I picked one up. Still getting it set up and I have a question. When I go to the website to print a custom leaflet/ insert it says done after you click to generate a PDF of your design but I can't find it to print it out. I've check my docs and downloads and I even thought it might just drop it on my desktop but no luck. Any hints for me Shawn? (Also post this on the SP Facebook page)

I will try to find my template and add it to the forum.  Mine was pretty basic, it was my test one, and I wanted to do a new one.

I like the fact they are backlit makes button aquisition alot easier when in a tight spot even in a well lit room.

Great review Shaun.
If I didn't have all those DSD button boxes, I'd be seriously looking into getting these instead. The price is right and they are pretty cool looking. smile
Take care

Hey Shaun:

I was hoping to participate in the next race and on Simracing System it says it's at Fuji. Which version of Fuji should I download.

Thanks!

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!
