  1. 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.

  3. Hey everyone, Figured I'd share my latest button plate project that I'm currently working on for my T300 base. I based the design off the steering wheel used in the Bentley GT3 racecar using a top mounted button plate rather than having the plate behind the wheel. I previously made a behind wheel mounted button plate a while back and wanted to go for a different design. After a few hours of drafting on AutoCAD I came up with a plate design and button placement I was satisfied with. I cut a prototype plate from some foam board I had lying around to see how it looked with the buttons. Pretty good if I do say so my self For this project I am using the TM compatible circuit by Moogen which can be found here: The circuit allows for both console and PC compatibly while maintaining the TM quick-release connection and includes inputs for 13 buttons, 4 d-pad inputs and 2 paddle shifters. I was amazed at how small and compact the circuit board is, making it perfect for button plate projects. I used push buttons for all 13 inputs and 2 toggle switches for the d-pad with the left switch being UP and DOWN and the right switch being LEFT and RIGHT directions. The wheel I am using is a 320mm NRG suede. To keep the plate raised off the steering wheel I'm using 1/2" plastic spacers which gives tons of space beneath the plate for the circuit board and all the wiring. Because of the placement of the DIN connector on the circuit I'll have to leave 1 screw out when bolting the wheel to the DSD adapter. For the paddles I tried mounting them to a backing plate using hinges and springs. With the push button I'm using and the tension of the spring the paddles have a nice firm and tactile feel comparable to my 599XX rim even using the foam board prototype. I wired up all the buttons and switches and checked each input using the TM profiler to make sure it was working before using shrink tubing to tidy everything up. The next step is to cut and drill the button plate, paddle shifters and the shifter mounting plate. I plan on using 4mm polycarbonate sheet for the plate and paddles and covering it with carbon fibre vinyl wrap. Once this is done and the DSD adapter arrives everything will be ready to be assembled! I'll post an update when the project is finished. - Cody
  4. Hey everyone, A while back I decided to make a custom button plate for my T300rs. The original plan was to use the circuit out of a 458 italia TX rim I had lying around but I later decided on using the BBI-32 button box circuit from Leo Bodnar which allowed for more button inputs and rotary encoder support. After a bunch of CAD drawings and tweaks I decided on a final design that I was satisfied with. The plate includes 8 push buttons and 2 rotary encoders. I originally had paddle shifters included on the plate as well but decided to take them off because they felt "soft" during gear changes unlike my 599xx rim which has a nice tactile feel. Anyone have any tips on how to fix this? I cut the plate from 3mm acrylic using a dremel tool with a cutting bit and the mini drum sander attachment for the finishing sanding work. A word of advice for anyone planning to use acrylic, drill the holes for the buttons/switches first! Acrylic is very brittle when drilling and cracks easily. I learned the hard way by trying to drill after the plate was cut and ended up splitting it and having to cut a new one. I finished off the plate by wrapping it in some carbon fiber vinyl and attached it to a replica OMP wheel using a DSD quick release. When the Perspex sheet I order arrives I plan to cut a small piece to cover the circuit board to protect it. I was really pleased with how the project turned out as this was my first attempt at any DIY projects like this. I plan on making another plate in the future using the TM compatible circuit by moggen that I found from a post on here.
  5. hi mate want to share with you my current project... a couple of month befor i buyed a Raid 13 320mm rim and mounted it via my QR system and a 25mm spacer to the TM T300. its the second wheel i build on the arduino. it feel great and i love it very much. the only problem it have no buttons... paddel shifter i dont miss... use only my SQ shifter! the "button plate" i have planed is based on a arduino nano v3 and the sketch from www.rr-m.org. its nothing to fancy. i dont want encoder or momentary switchen in the plate. will build later a bit bigger button box with encoders etc... for the 3d model of the plate i needed 12 hours of work! and the 3d print took over 8 hours... the plan is to cover the print with 3d carbon foil to make em looks nice. the project stuck atm a bit. im waiting for 2 packages from china with buttons and the arduino nano. but later more here some pics of the current status: the raid typ 13 the mounted arduino case aka spacer the 3d model of the plate the finish print the front view the plate on the wheel. the screws go by the plate, wheel, arduino case in to the quick release rear view. the back will stay open. i hope that the switches arrives the next view days and i can carry on the build. cant wait to put this thing together if something move forward i let it you know by the way. this is the most importent part right now on my rig! the printed e cigarette mount i have created today Ciao BattleGear
  6. I would like to present you my 70mm hub with shifter paddles system. - 70mm, 5mm holes - fully carbon 4mm button plate - fully carbon ~2,8mm paddles - esthetically covered buttons on back side - high quality fully aluminum 8 buttons on button plate (electronic is prepared for 12 buttons, two of them are for shifter paddles), plug and play - paddles external width can be regulated between 222,2÷247,8mm - 6 bolt M5x70 DIN7991 Socket flat head screws - USB spring cable I can make similar button plate system with buttons located according to your project. In this pictures below you can see project made as replica of real GT3 Porsche car.

    Thrustmaster button plate

    Hello, Im looking for a button plate for my thrustmaster tx base. I will buy a sparco p310 or a momo rim. Know someone a button plate with solid price? Ascher and sam maxwell plates are too expensive for me Rf evolutions have a plate with good price, but the guy is spanish, and i dont become any answer on my questions. Thanks and regards, Peter
