Logitech G29 / G920 is comparable to the Thrustmaster T300 range.
If you look at T300, you want a model with the 3 pedal set (T3PA) included, NOT the 2 pedal set. Which means, you’re looking at the T300RS GT. Also, if you do go Thrustmaster, be aware, not all of the wheels can change the wheel rim.
G29 peak torgue was measured at 2.2Nm, the last time i checked
T300 peak torgue is somwhere between 3 and 3.9Nm.
That all said, it doesn’t matter a jot how much peak, it’s actually about fidelity and how well the FFB has been calibrated per game. Quite frankly, you’d enjoy both, because this is your first wheel. If there’s anything to take home here about FFB, G29 has a notchy feel, the T300 has a smoother feel (which after age, can come with belt stretching)
G29: 900 degrees rotation vs T300 1080 degrees. I doubt this would matter to you either, and indeed would recommend that you ignore the difference.
Leather wheel feels like quality
Addons: H-Pattern Shifter
Software is good, support for game profiles
Works in linux
No wheel rim changes
You can’t use a anything via a usb cable into your pc, you need to plugin extras into the wheel base, which then goes into the pc.
Because it doesn’t use the old logitech profiler software, they’ve dropped support for old games (before 2010 probably)
No less than 5 addon wheel rims
Addons: H-Pattern Shifter, Sequential shifter, Handbrake
Everything can plug into pc directly via USB (though some need a converter)
Wheel is rubber lined, which isn’t nice to the touch, after a 2 hour session of racing
Software is serviceable, but lacks profiles per game
Know that you can mix certain simracing addon between brands. There’s nothing wrong with buying the Logitech G29, getting the Thrustmaster TH8A Shifter and maybe their handbrake too. Heck, if you’re crazy enough, you could even unplug the G29 pedals, and use Thrustmaster pedals, but I skip that idea, at least until you get familiar with the simracing hardware space.
I would also recommend you don’t listen to reliability gripes from people, because moaner’s are the loudest. Make sure you’re guarantee/warranty is in place, buy local from a reputable shop, and if there is any problem, which I highly doubt there will be, you can deal with a local vendor if that time ever comes.
I’ve owned 5 Logitech wheels, and now i’m on a T300RS GT. I’ve broken a 2 logitech wheels, and one pedal on my T3PA. I’d say, it isn’t a manufacturing fault, and they last well past my warranty.
I purposefully didn’t comment on price, because the market’s prices are a shitshow at the moment. Ultimately, only you can decide what’s value for money.
