We created an Amazon store that's pretty basic and currently only for U.S. shoppers. If you purchase something from it and then other items through Amazon, we make a small commission. It won't cost anymore than Amazon normally does but will help support our show and website and would be greatly appreciated !
You can get to it by going here : http://www.isrtv.com/isrtv-amazon-store/
Thank for your support !
Oh, and then it just ended..........I miss the days when this place was well populated.......For so many years I would drop in but never registered. Where has everybody gone to?
If there's still anybody around, Im on iracing now, Phil George, come and give me a bump in the vrs gt3. Xxx
I have 2 Fanatec rims converted to OSW and the Holger QR1 quick release mechanism from Sim Racing Machine (SRM) and in my view:
FANATEC STEERING WHEELS
a) If you already have Fanatec wheel rims then SRM's conversion kit is very good. No issues using the Fanatec rims on OSW and I recommend SRM's top of the range shifters with 15mm magnets. Fanatec shifters feel cheap and I've had a few break. SRM's upgraded shifters make a huge difference to driving feel and quality
SRM's Fanatec conversion kit requires you to open up and re-wire some wheel components. It's not hard but it's not plug and play;
c) Given you do not already have Fanatec wheels, I would not recommend pursuing this option.
CUSTOM STEERING WHEELS
ProSim H Shifter and HE Ultimate Pedals and your own words imply quality over cost. Therefore I recommend purchasing wheels that are pre-built by specialists (e.g. https://www.sammaxwellcustoms.com/). There are quite a few sim racing wheel makers and some of them make works of art and priced accordingly.
As an example I have 2 wheels built by Dynamic Sim Racing (DSR) and they are both levels above the quality of the Fanatec wheels in terms of a genuine racing wheel, amazing shifters and high quality button box, buttons and general craftsmanship. Unfortunately DSR have closed.
As a counterweight example I also had a 3D printed F1 wheel from 3DRap. It looked fabulous in pictures but in reality it felt flimsy, with low quality buttons and poor craftsmanship.
Do some research and you'll end up with some fabulous wheels that will really complement the quality of your other hardware.
