So for you if i understand the best option is the tx ffb ( i think you talk about  the tx rw) with the t3p0 pro is the best choice ?

I actually prefer the the FFB in the TMX, but the TM is capable of stronger FFB if that's what you want.

@Freddygore I know price may be an issue, but I would avoid both if you can. 

I have owned dozens of wheels over the past 18 years so I'll try and give you some advice. Relevant to this conversation I have had a T500RS with T3PA, T300 with base pedals, Fanatec CSL Elite with CSL Pedals, and limited run  ProSimTech PT1 pedals.

I found very good FFB in the T500, but when I got a PS4 I wanted native support (for GTS) so I bought a T300 but kept the T500 for the T3PA pedals. The T300 is a good wheel, but overall I think the T500 was a better wheel base.

The stock pedals that come with the T300 are average at best (same ones that come with the TX racing ferrari 458) so consider that as part of the purchasing decision. Additionally, if you get the base pedals, you can't just upgrade them (see Fanatec discussion below) you have to replace them entirely.

The TX Racing Ferrari 458 is basically the same base as the T300, for reference.

The TMX wheel based is a substantial step down on everything mentioned above. Not only does it not have a removable wheel, but it's based on the T150, which has a brushed belt/gear driven motor, vs the T300 (TX) brushless belt motor.

If you had to chose between those two I would pick the TX Ferrari even though the pedals are worse, because the base motor is much better, the wheel rim is interchangeable, and you can always get T3PA pedals later when you can afford them.

Now, having said all that, I would suggest doing something else entirely - consider Fanatec. I've gone from Logitech to Thrustmaster to Fanatec... and the latest jump has been remarkable. The quality is a league above in every regard, hardware, firmware and software (ffb).

With the right base you can have PC/PS4/Xbox compatibility, you have an awesome range of wheel rims to chose from, and the pedal system if you go CSL can be upgraded later simply by getting a load cell brake addon (the existing brake becomes the clutch). Yes, it's a lot more to get into this ecosystem - but I honestly think it is worth it now that they have great console support. Although I mainly play on PC these days, it's nice to know I can still use my wheel base for GTS or Forza just by swapping wheel rims.

Alors, c'est vrai que cette suggestion est plus cher, et que mon francais n'est pas trop bien, mais j'espere que c'est une idee de quelque ultilitaire pour vous quand meme.

As you mentioned in the end there, you have to keep in mind that a Fantatec setup is not in the same price category as a Thrustmaster setup. You pay AT LEAST half as much for a Fanatec CSL setup compared to a Thrustmaster T300/TX setup. That is not a small amount you have to cough up. And for that price it should be quite a step up from a Thrustmaster T300/TX setup.

Thanks a lot dudes for all your answers, last question i promise lol between the tx 458 ferrari and the tx leather edition what s the best ? Thanks a lot for all of you guys!

I'd say TX leather edition, the leather rim is better than the stock Ferrari replica and, being round, it is also more usable for rallying

Go for the TX Leather Edition. The wheel has an overall better feel and it also comes with the T3PA pedals. The TX Ferrari has the cheap and entry-level pedals. The T3PA pedals are a serious upgrade from the simple stock 2-pedal set.

Btw: Does anyone have the TS-XW Racer Sparco P310 Competition Mod? I was wondering in what way it is an upgrade to the T300/TX (apart from the Sparco rim)? It's a different base by the looks of it.

Yeah the TX Leather is probably the best option in this case. The T3PA is effectively the same as the T3PA-Pro but without the more rugged metal chassis - so a good entry level pedal set.

The TS-XW is a different base, the same as the TS-PC base. It's a 40 Watt brushless motor, apparently 1.6x more torque than the T or TX bases. But for that money (699,99 €) I would go Fanatec (personal opinion).

Bonjour les gars, c’est encore moi, je vérifie toute la nuit que je trouve une bonne roue avec retour de force sur la Xbox One et j’aimerais acheter un TMX Force Feedback - Thrustmaster avec t3pa pro, est-ce un bon choix? I hesitate between this configuration and the Volant TX Racing Ferrari 458 Italia Edition i don t think i will use the clutch . Thanks 

ce n'est pas une roue mais un volant.. je pense que la TMX avec les pédales t3pa pro est un très bon choix pour les joueurs PC.

Congratulations on the new role! 

Sorry to kick off with a moan but, on the assumption that the details in that post are the same as those that will appear in the game, the specification for the RS200 Evolution is incorrect (the same error was present in DiRT 4 as well).
