NEVER 2/18 INSTALLING THE GEAR SHIFT KNOB 1. To screw the gear shift knob (A) onto its stick (B): turn the gear shift knob clockwise. 2. To unscrew the gear shift knob: turn the knob counterclockwise. TIGHTEN UNTIGHTEN MOUNTING THE SHIFTER Mounting is optimized for any type of support: - Tables, desks or shelves from 1 to 55 mm in thickness, via the clamping system (H). - Cockpits, via the built-in “screw threads” (the clamping system is removable). Mounting the shifter on a table or desk 1. Place the nose of the shifter on a table or other flat surface. 2. To tighten: turn the clamping wheel counterclockwise. 3. To untighten: turn the clamping wheel clockwise. TIGHTEN UNTIGHTEN 3/18 Positioning and rotating the clamping system (can be adjusted by 360°) 1. Using the included 2.5 mm Allen key (E), very slightly unscrew the 3 screws holding the clamping system (H) in place. The clamping system (and therefore the entire shifter) can now be rotated manually by 360°. 2. Select your preferred position along the 360° of rotation (3 examples are shown below, among the many other possibilities available). Next, retighten the 3 screws holding the clamping system in place. 4/18 Mounting the shifter in a cockpit 1. Using the included 2.5 mm Allen key (E), completely unscrew and remove the 3 screws holding the clamping system (H) in place. Detach the clamping system from the shifter. 2. Once the clamping system has been removed, screw 2 “M6” screws (not included) into the cockpit shelf, and into 2 of the 4 small “screw threads” (I) located on the underside of the shifter's nose. Be sure not to use “M6” screws that are too long, which may pierce and damage the upper part of the shifter’s nose. A shifter mounting template for cockpits is available at ts.thrustmaster.com (in the 'Wheels/TH8A Shifter/Manual / Help file' section). 5/18 POSITIONING AND ROTATING THE SHIFT PLATES (CAN BE ADJUSTED BY 360°) 1. Using the included 2.5 mm Allen key (E), slightly unscrew the 4 screws holding the shift plate (C or D) in place. The shift plate can now be rotated manually by 360°. 2. Select your preferred position along the 360° of rotation (3 examples are shown below, among the many other possibilities available). 3. Retighten the 4 screws holding the shift plate in place. 6/18 SWITCHING FROM THE “H-PATTERN (7+1)” SHIFT PLATE TO THE “SEQUENTIAL (+/-)” SHIFT PLATE 1. Unscrew (counterclockwise) and remove the gear shift knob (A). 2. Using the included 2.5 mm Allen key (E), completely unscrew and remove the 4 screws holding the “H-pattern (7+1)” shift plate in place. Remove the shift plate. During this procedure, take care not to accidentally let any of the screws fall inside the internal mechanism. 3. Manually rotate the internal structure 90° to the right (clockwise). Next, install the “Sequential (+/-)” shift plate. 7/18 4. Using the included 2.5 mm Allen key (E), replace and completely retighten the 4 screws holding the “Sequential (+/-)” shift plate in place. Screw the gear shift knob back on (clockwise). Carry out this procedure in reverse to replace the “H-pattern (7+1)” shift plate. Notes regarding the internal structure's top cover: J: 4 “screw threads” to attach the shift plates (C or D). K: 2 screws which hold the internal structure in place (do not unscrew). L: Button which automatically detects the type of shift plate used (C or D). Is pressed automatically when the “Sequential (+/-)” shift plate is installed. Keep this area clean in order to avoid any detection problems. M: Slot for easier positioning of the shift plates. 8/18 ADJUSTING THE GEAR SHIFT RESISTANCE * Only applies to the “H-pattern (7+1)” shift plate. * Before making any adjustments, the “H-pattern (7+1)” shift plate must be installed in its original position (please see the diagram below). 1. Using a large flat head screwdriver, place the screwdriver in the head of the internal tensioning screw (G) located in the lower left section of the shifter’s housing. 2. To slightly increase the resistance: turn the screw clockwise. 3. To slightly decrease the resistance: turn the screw counterclockwise. INCREASING THE RESISTANCE DECREASING THE RESISTANCE 2 full turns are enough to go from one extreme to the other. To avoid damaging the system: - Stop tightening the screw when you feel strong resistance. - Stop untightening the screw if the stick becomes loose and wobbly. 9/18 SETUP INSTRUCTIONS FOR GAME CONSOLES PLAYSTATION®3 = With all games for PS3TM, always connect(*) the TH8A shifter directly to one of the PS3TM's USB ports (NOT to the Thrustmaster racing wheel's base). - Connect the TH8A shifter's DIN connector to the DIN / USB cable. - Connect the TH8A shifter to one of your PS3TM's USB ports. - Start the game.
