    DIY AMG GT3 Wheel

    Hi everybody, I create this topic in order to follow the progress of my DIY wheel for Thrustmaster TS PC. As for the F1 steering wheel that I already made, I go on a base aluminum cutting and 3D printing for the remaining components. The goal is to reproduce the steering wheel of the AMG GT3 (2016 version) based on Assetto corsa model - Front Plate + Rear cover + paddles in aluminium - Magnetic shifter in 3D printing - Quick Release Thrustmaster in 3D Printing - Handles in 3D printing - Buttons and electronics: Arduino Nano for Thrustmaster emulation + Ebay buttons - Alu washers for the outline of the buttons The wheel is almost finished now ( remaining some electronic wiring)
  2. Hey, I'm new here and had a "great" idea awhile back and was wondering if it was possible. Instead of buying a $50 adapter to be able to use a real wheel and do whole bunch of weird wiring and having to drill hole for an e-brake (this is for an e-brake mod/paddle shifter delete/rally car wheel whatever on console) could you re-route the plug for the steering wheel out the back of the base and make a button box instead of having all of the buttons on the steering wheel?
  3. As the title says. Im looking for a non working th8a shifter. I ordered the wrong pcb board for my th8rs and now I have one for a th8a. I would love the find a broken shifter in need of the pcb board so i can fix it and use it as an ebrake. If i cant find one Im probably going to put the pcb board of for sale
  4. After installing the display and the encoders in my Ferrari Addon I decided to make a big mod this steering wheel. Follows the finished project: 1) First Project I decided to replace the original buttons with nkk buttons, identical to those used on the steering wheels of the F1 cars. I'll remove the pads and replace them with buttons. The pads are to be placed in front of the gear levers. I'm also going to apply carbon fiber film through hydrography. The Bodnar D-Pads installed in new place.

    T150 and TMX hard mount

    Something for you T150 and TMX owners out there. Since the wheels only have a clamp mount we have received requests from heavy users to make a way to hard-mount these wheels. Well, I came up with a simple solution to a simple problem. This hard mount adapter plate mounts to the bottom of the T150 or TMX wheel base and provides hard mount points in the typical Thurstmaster locations so you can bolt it to any rig that has the pre-drilled holes. We put metal inserts into the plate so it can be tightened down securely. We have the first batch in stock now so if you have this problem then here is a great way to take care of it. http://www.ricmotech.com/hard_mount_adapter_for_T150_tmx_wheels_p/rmt-t150hmp.htm

    Thrustmaster Quick Release Kit

    hi mates After building a DIY Quick release System for my T300 and collecting expiriance with the thrustmaster wheel now developed a version for your T500, TX and T300!!! maybe the new Direct Drive Wheel too. the system is 100% Console Compatible and work with all eco line thurstmaster wheels except the Ferrari F1 Wheel (more to this later). its also possible to mount your after marked wheels like momos (70mm bolt pattern) and raid (74mm bolt pattern). even DIY wheels like the Arduino button plate mod will work and on you liking you can order it with USB pass through... its also planed to make following: an adapter to 3 bolt pattern for Formula and Kart Wheels - Done The Trustmaster to Ardurino connector and adapter for custom button plates and paddel shifter to build you own custom wheels - Done an adapter from the TM F1 Addon to a Quick release - Done All parts are 3D printed in ABS plastic with and infill of 100% for maximal stability. the quick release i use for it is a slimline quick release and is modified for minmal play. its based on the original Thrustmaster Quick Release in your wheel, no "DSD Style" Adapter needed for a perfect fit and to hold the costs low. The Quick Release Kit mounted on the Thrustmaster quick release in side view: here the female part mounted to a T300: to mount your TM Wheel to the Slimline Quick Release you get the 70mm bolt pattern to Thrustmaster 3 bolt pattern adapter with the mounting screws and long nuts left the Adapter and right the Male part of the slimeline QR. the adapter fits perfect in you wheel. here a ferrari 599XX wheel. a look inside. This is the VGA holder with the male VGA Cable. the male part assambed with the male VGA connector. the assambly on a 599xx the mounted wheel to the base. the wheel will be move around 45mm closer to you!!! my you must readjust your rig. Front view of the Kit. QR kit with a raid typ 17 (320mm) aftermarket rim and a 3d printed (arduino nano case 25mm) as spacer. The F1 Addon Adapter Yes it finally done. it was a lot more work in the CAD programm that i tought. its very stable and fits very good. it thakes around 13.30 hours to print!!! yes its long but for the stabiliy its ok. your F1 adapter will be printed in Black ABS, the green is only for demo purposes and that you can better see the layout of the internal adapter. The 2 main parts of the set done a new version of the internal adapter. now the connection to the paddel shifter is much stronger... rigth the new one! the internal adapter holds everthing together. its the most importent part in the whole rim! reassembled the distance between the base and the rim. for my tast the rim was way to close on the base! it was a really pain to mount the F1 rim. especially with th tm1638 display! The Trustmaster to Arduino Nano Adapter for 70mm or 74mm wheels. With this adapter its possible to make easly your own custom wheel with full console compatiblity and without an external USB wire. The wheel will recognize it as and standard TM wheel! Its available for 70mm and 74mm pitch circle wheels. You can swap the wheels back and forts in your game with shuting the wheel down. more to this software can you see on http://rr-m.org/blog/arduino-nano-controlled-buttons-for-thrustmaster-wheelbases-part-3/ <--- software available here! This is the solution to build your own wheel of your dreams!!! The Kit is without software, you will get only the hardware for this project! The case, cover and VGA holder this is the brain. the arduino nano with the VGA to Arduino Cable. Sorry for the bad pic. it will be replaced the whole parts assambeld together the case without the cover. its replaced with a custom paddel shifter mounting plate the beast mounted on a t300 a dream of a wheel! The 70mm to Formula and Kart wheel (50.8mm) adapter just a simple adapter to reduse the pitch circle to the formula standard. the most adapter on the market are from 50.8mm to 70mm... there are almost useless! you like small and light wheels? then this is the way to go! Assamble the Kit: will be updated with an video! 1. unscrew the wheel on the original Thrustmaster quick release. 2.disassamble the wheel and assamble the wheel with the male part of the quick release. 2.1 unscew on the front of the wheel 3 bolts with an allen key. on 6, 10:30 and 2:30 clock. you dont have to unscrew the other 3 bolts! the original quick release is now loss. 2.2 gently slide out the quickrelease and carrfully unplug the JST connactor from the PCB. 2.3 now you take the male side of the slimline quick release kit and connect the male JST it to the PCB. it fits only with one side and dont use to much pressure! 2.4 stow the rest on the calbe in the cavity in the quickrelease adapter and not inside the wheel case! 2.5 now look for the rigth orientation of your VGA connector (wider part must show to the top of you wheel) and silde the adapter with the longnuts into your wheel and screw the 3 original screw back in to you wheel. be carful and dont scratch the nice TM wheel you are finish with your wheel! you must tighten the screws again after a couple of races... 3 assamble the female part on the original quick release. 3.1 take the TM quick release and the adapter plate with the female VGA connector. plug the male JST to the Original Quick release. 3.2 screw the adapter plate to the TM quick release. in this part is a little gap. this must show upwards. now take 3 M4 x 10mm Bolts and screw the adapter to the QR. the wider side of the VGA connector must show to the gap. 3.3 take the female part of the slimline QR and orientatethe silver button facing upwards (when the QR is open. it closes to the right). take the 3 M5 Nuts and 3 of the 6 M5 x 15mm screws and bolt down your QR. why 6 screws? this are unique screws you cant buy. dont loss them, its only for safety. 3.4 now you can plug the Base side of the quick release in your base. make sure the orientation the right to you drive shaft! screw the TM QR tight and tighten the philips head and you are good to go!!! 4. test the system 4.1 plug in your thrustmaster wheel and let it calibrate without wheel. take the wheel and check if the VGA connectors fit together. slide it gently in place and tighten the outer ring of the QR to the right. the silver button will lick in his place. 4.2 check in the TM driver if your wheel if recognized and test the buttons. all should work like before without the mod! if it works start your favort game and give it a try also very impmortent: dont overtighting the screws. may your abs adapter or screws will break!!! for the build i will use only epman quick releases. this is what color you can choose. extend and pricing: The standard Base side kit: 1 x Adapter base side with vga holder, 70mm to TM 3 bolt 2 x Modified slimline quick release with your chosen color 1 x VGA female cable to JST Male (Base side) a package with all the screws.... Price: 85€ + shipping in your country via DHL The Wheel Side for a Rim Like the 599xx, GTE, 28 Leather or GT rim: 1 x Adapter wheel side from 70mm to TM3 bolt 1 x VGA holder plate 1 x VGA male cable to JST female (Rim side) a package with all the screws.... Price: 45€ The Ferrari F1 addon wheel adapter: 1 x F1 Internal adapter 1 x F1 external adapter quick release plate 1 x Modified slimline quick release with your chosen color 1 x VGA male cable to JST female (Rim side) a package with all the screws.... Price: 100€ without and 120€ With Quick release Arduino nano adapter kit: 1x Arduino Nano V3 1x The VGA to Arduino cable 1x The Nano cast with 70mm or 74mm pitch circle 1x A cover for the case with 70mm or 74mm pitch circle 1x VGA holder plate 6x M5 screws in stainless steel to mount your wheel 1x a slimline quick release (optional) Price: 65€ without and 85€ with quick release 3 Bolt Formula and Kart wheel Kit: 1x Adapter from 70mm to 3 bolt Kart pattern with 50.8mm pitch circle a package with screws.... Wheel screws not included. 1 x slimline quick release (optional) Price: 32€ without and 52€ with quick release its not a problem to order a custom kit for your needs! like a set for 2 thrustmaster wheels and a aftermarktet rim or for some custom rims or even usb... the pieces will be updated with some other special packages like the TM F1 conversion Kit... i prefer paypal for our both safety. its payment in advance. if i got the money on my paypal accout i will start the build. the manifacture time is around 3 - 4 weeks plus shiping to you. dont have all parts at stock and ive order some parts in china at the manifacture to hold the cost low... thats why it take so long to build a set. i dissosiate from every damage on your wheel like Rim or the Base!!! every kit is tested and gets only send if it 100% working! if you want to order? just send me a message on the board, add my in skype under battlegear2k10 or write me a email under daniel.ruf1007 (at) gmail.com may a shop will be build someday^^ if you have questions contact me or write here in this topic Ciao BattleGear

    Paddle shifters too clicky

    I'm running a thrustmaster TX and wonder if anyone knows if its possible and relatively easy to reduce/remove the clickiness noise of the paddle shifters. thanks in advance for any suggestions. edit: sorry should have highlighted i'm using the F1 style wheel addon.
  8. Hello fellow sim racers! Today I have decided to start a thread about a project I recently completed as I believe some Thrustmaster wheel owners may be interested. This is a button plate for the T500 wheel base that uses an Arduino board and sketch to emulate the original T500 GT rim. This means the button plate is recognized by the T500 base as the original rim, so console compatibility is maintained. There is also no need for an external USB as the Arduino is powered by the wheelbase. I was turned on to this project when I came across a blog/tutorial written by Taras from rr-m.org. Taras built a similar console compatible button plate using an Arduino board for the TX wheelbase. He has now also added a blog post for the T500 rim emulation since we where able to confirm that we in fact have a working sketch. Taras should be given full credit for all of the software, sketch writing and wiring diagrams for both the TX and T500 emulations. This was my first time using Arduino so his knowledge was definitely needed for my project to be a success. In his blogs (linked below) you will find all of the necessary information to perform this project yourself, including the Arduino Sketches and wiring diagrams. I have included some pics of my button plate project as well as the YouTube video I upload showing my button plate working on both PS3 and in the control panel. Hopefully Taras will be joining isrtv and posting here about his TX project as well. The button plate I have made now is a very simple and plain design using an Arduino Uno R3, once I replace the 350mm rim with a suede 320mm rim I will make a much nicer button plate using an Arduino Nano. I hope you guys enjoy and please feel free to ask any questions or post any comments you may have, I always like to get feedback Edit: The TX emulation sketch is now confirmed to function with the T300 base. This sketch can be found and downloaded from Taras' blog part 3 in the link below.

  9. I just completed my Thrustmaster F1 wheel mod using a SIMR-F1 display. This display is really close to the MacLaren PCU-6D display used in real F1 cars, except for the orange colored lateral displays. The SIMR-F1 is HUGE and barely fits the Thrustmaster F1 wheel, but in the end I'm really satisfied with the result: The wheel now has: * 1 SIMR-F1 display - 15 LED rpm display (5 green, 5 red, 5 blue) - 6 additional LEDs (pitlane, optimal shift point, overheat ...) - left display panel (rpm, water temp, oil temp, current lap, remaining laps, laps before pit ...) - center display dedicated to current gear - right display panel (best laptime, optimal laptime, delta to best, delta to opti ...) * 8 buttons - stock buttons connected to the display (k, n, pit, pump, pl, drs, +10, -1) * 5 up-down encoders - 2 stock encoder connected to the display (dif in, chrg) - 3 additional encoder (mix, grp, trq) * 3 12 position switches - left display panel variable selection (boost) - right display panel variable selection (rev) - Ferrari knob (MF) * 3 3 way switches - 3 stock 2 way switches are replaced (bo, start, wet) * 2 d-pads - both d-pads are connected together * 2 paddle shifters - stock paddle switches connected to the display On the SIMR-F1 the following inputs and outputs are used: - 30 digital inputs (buttons, encoders) out of 32 - 3 12 position switches out of 9 - 0 analog inputs out of 2 - 0 external LEDs out of 7 All the hardware, software, tools and steps involved to complete this mod are commented in the following post: http://www.isrtv.com/forums/topic/12982-thrustmaster-f1-wheel-mod-with-simr-f1-display-switches-and-encoders Here are some short videos with the wheel in action on iRacing: In race conditions:
