Thrustmaster adds another component to their Ecosystem

It seems like each couple of months that Thrustmaste announces a new product to expand on their new eco system of compenent intended for sim racing.  The latest entry will be a stand alone version of the T3PA pedals called the T3PA-PRO.  This new all metal 3 pedal set will be a much better upgrade for those using a TX or T300 wheel and will give them a pedal set very similar to that of the original T500.

Here is the press release that came from Thrustmaster:

THE NEW 3-PEDAL PEDAL SET IN THRUSTMASTER’S RACING PRODUCT ECOSYSTEM:
100% METAL, AND FEATURING A UNIQUE DESIGN*
New York City, March 18, 2015 — Thrustmaster is continuing to add to its racing product ecosystem with the launch of the stand-alone version of its high-end 100% metal, 3-pedal pedal set: the T3PA-PRO.
Fully adjustable
Races are won by precision speed and precision braking! Thrustmaster is releasing the best solution for the racer who wants to be the best. The T3PA- PRO is a pedal set which allows for both the bold and subtle braking maneuvers. With the T3PA-PRO, Thrustmaster is offering racing fans a first-class device designed to satisfy even the most demanding users. The T3PA-PRO features 100% metal construction, covering all of its components: the 3 pedals, its structure (both external and internal), and its footrest with non-slip grating. The pedal set weighs in at a little over 2 pounds, ensuring optimal stability.
In order to adapt to users’ different needs and preferences, the T3PA-PRO is fully adjustable – including each of its 3 pedals: in terms of spacing (3 possible positions per pedal), angle of inclination (2 possible positions per pedal) and height (4 possible positions for the gas pedal / 3 possible positions for the brake and clutch pedals). This adjustability and versatility also includes the pedal set’s base, which features a unique design*, allowing users to select between 2 different positions: floor-mounted position (F1-style), or suspended position (GT-style).
2 mods included for even more effective braking
The T3PA-PRO features 2 impressive compression springs: the resulting pressure force is adjustable according to the range of travel allocated to the springs. But Thrustmaster’s latest pedal set doesn’t stop there: it also includes two removable mods, which can be installed directly underneath the brake pedal. Users can therefore adjust the range of travel, pressure force and type of braking feel to best suit their own preferences. This provides a big advantage in racing, since victory so often depends on the brake pedal’s performance.
With the first mod (the SPRING BRAKE MOD), composed of an additional compression spring, the pressure force can be adjusted between 30 and 35 pounds. With the second mod (the CONICAL RUBBER BRAKE MOD), composed of a conical stop made from industrial-grade high-density rubber, the pressure force can be adjusted between 45 and 70 pounds: using this mod, users will also enjoy an authentic feel thanks to an ultra-progressive resistance at the end of the pedal’s range of travel.
The power of compatibility
Every aspect of the T3PA-PRO has been designed with the goal of providing the greatest number of possibilities for customization and adjustments in terms of its configuration: it is compatible with most pedal kits sold in motorsport accessories shops, and is easy to mount in different types of cockpits thanks to its numerous built-in screw threads. The T3PA-PRO is compatible with all Thrustmaster T-Series racing wheels: the T300 RS, T300 Ferrari GTE, T500 RS, Ferrari F1 Wheel Integral T500, TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition and Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel.



* Patent pending.
·         The Thrustmaster T3PA-PRO will be available at a suggested retail price of $169.99 Get an early look at the pedal set at the Thrustmaster online shop, starting inMarch.

The price is less than most on the market, but if you can get some G27/25 pedals and a ricmotech or a bodine adaptor it is a different approach. But if I was buying a T300 and these, I would opt for the T500 if I wanted these pedals. I am glad to see them release the pedals separately.

This is disappointing...  still no load cell braking.  Geared towards the TX and T300 but given the costs... why not just get a T500?

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!
