(HallEffect AccuRate Technology) also features with its contactless magnetic sensors which deliver 16-bit precision (65,536 values). The racing wheel also includes internal memory and upgradable firmware.

Unlike the standard T300 RS racing wheel, the T300RS GT Edition comes with a metal 3-pedal set (as opposed to the regular 2-pedal set) complete with clutch. These long-travel metal pedals can be adjusted in terms of height and spacing and the brake pedal offers progressive resistance. Brand new pedal heads were created for this particular pedal set which have a unique design.

The T300RS GT Edition racing wheel is made from metal and features a rubber trim, it can of course be detached and swapped out for other rims in the Thrustmaster ecosystem. Along with the official PlayStation 4 buttons, the wheel rim features the Gran Turismo logo on the metal central hub. The rim is 11 inches / 28 cm in diameter and features metal paddle shifters measuring 5 inches / 13 cm in height with a total of 13 action buttons and directional buttons.
