1. My steering wheel doesn't work.

Every Real-Forklift comes with a Thrustmaster T300 RS force feedback steering wheel.  Every unit we ship comes with a glue plug to prevent users from moving the selector switch, so make sure to check for it.
In Windows Search, type  joystick then select Setup USB Game Controller

Select the Thrustmaster controller setting.  If it shows you this, then you have a communication problem between your steering wheel  and Windows operating system.

First things first, make sure the selector switch on the left side of the steering wheel is set to PS3.  All of our units are shipped to be glued in that position.  Once that is verified, you will need to shut off the simulator and unplug  the power from the back of the steering wheel base.  It is a three receptacle plug.  Wait 30 seconds for it to completely power down.  Plug back in and power-up your simulator.

Always stand clear of the steering wheel on boot up as it will run through a calibration.

Once that is done, go back to the joystick  panel and see if it is now showing the correct Thrustmaster control   panel.  If you see the image below then you are good to go.

If this doesn’t resolve your issue please contact us via email:

    5. My Simulator Steering Wheel turns at a different rate.
