  6. Hello again, Today I have a brand new SRM (sim racing machines) USB and quick release conversion kit for Fanatec Clubsport rims. This kit was given to me by a fellow sim racer in exchange for some repair work I did. The kit is 100% brand new and has never been installed. This kit comes with an adapter to mount an aftermarket quick release to your Clubsport rim as well as the teensy LC PCB for converting the Clubsport rim to USB. This kit is meant for a 70mm QR1 quick release. Please note the 70mm holes are threaded, so the quick release should not have threads itself. If the quick release you are using does have threads you can drill out the threads in this adapter and use the threads in the aftermarket quick release. Also includes the upgraded DIN connector for connecting the coiled cable to the USB cable as shown in the pictures. This kit is for the BMW/Porsche/Formula rims but it may also work with the universal hub with some light modification (the Universal Hub uses a 12 pin connector rather than the 8 pin used by all other clubsport rims). Please note that this does not work with elite line of rims. Installation is rather straight forward if you are comfortable working with this type of stuff and have a bit of mechanical/electronic service ability. The hardest part is removing the stock quick release without putting too much force on the internal wiring such as that for the joysticks, shifters etc. The second hardest part is unplugging the stock Fanatec harness from the stock Fanatec PCB inside the rim, it is possible to cause damage if you are not careful and put too much force on the connector or solder joints. If you are not confident performing the installtion yourself I do offer installtion services out of Connecticut USA. You could either ship your rim to me or meet me if you are local. If you are buying this kit from me, I would perform the installtion for an additional $40 USD. In this case you would receive your rim back with the kit fully installed and functional, I would also instal the quick release you are using if you send it along with the rim. I have been working on sim racing hardware for approximately 5 years now and have worked with similar technology for many more years so your rim would be in good hands This kit, with the included DIN connector normally costs $89 GBP (approximately $122 USD) plus postage (approx. $21 USD). I am offering this kit brand new shipped (within continental USA) for $115 USD. Link to this item on the SRM website: https://www.simracingmachines.com/WebShop/fanatec-conversion
  7. Hello guys, I wanted to share with you my race rig project. When I started designing it I wanted to make one that you can easily adjust to sit in almost any race and road car position. So I stated by gathering information about the dimensions and the angle of different positions. I took 10 cars as models for my project. (4 F1 Cars: F1 2015, F1 198o's, F1 1970's, F1 1960's; 1 WRC car; 1 La Ferrari, 1 GT2; 2 Normal road cars: BMW M4, FIAT 500; and an ALFA 155 TI V6). I think that these examples are more than enough to accommodate almost any position. The rig is designed to fit only direct drive technology, because the motor needs to sit back and transmit through a cardan shaft the rotation to the steering. The pedals are lifted to the right height by a scissor jack. Both the upper part (that holds the motor, wheel, shifter, and monitor), and the pedal jack are movable through linear bearings. The seat is composed of 4 parts that move to accommodate almost any race and road car seat. The problem with having a one or two parts seat, when tilting it to obtain the correct position is that the back of the seat needs to bend to hold your back in the correct shape. So as a consequence the 4 parts are designed to fit correctly your body. All the adjustments of the rig are made with linear bearings, clamps, and screw type jack (pedals, and seat bottom height), so it is thought out to never get out of the rig to adjust it to the new position. I want to thank the Grabcad community for some of the 3D objects I use in my model. (the steering wheels, and human model) as well as Assetto Corsa for creating such realistic and beautiful detailed car interiors. I hope you like it. PS: I only managed to render the model for 2 positions: (F1 2015, and WRC Car)
  8. SOLD Hey guys, I am selling my Ricmotech Alcantara Add-On Wheel, with the wheel side Holger Q1R quick release. Its a custom wheel solution for DD wheels, using the excellent Thrustmaster Alcantara 599 XX EVO rim. http://www.ricmotech.com/Alcantara_Add_on_Wheel_for_Direct_Drive_Servos_p/rmt-ddwkit-599.htm I bought the wheel new in late June. It has barely been used. The rim is a little small for my taste. My dog chewed the original USB cable and so I replaced it with a brand new cable today. I tested the wheel and paddle shifters and everything works great. This set up cost me around $350 new, but I will let it go for $150 shipped to anywhere in the continental US via USPS Priority. PayPal only. Here are pictures: Thanks for your interest.
  9. I am new to sim racing and am looking to buy a OSW setup. I need help choosing which components to get. I am looking at the premade simuCUBE kits available from simracingbay and would like to know which one you guys recommend. I have read that going with the 30NM is pointless as you can't reach its peak potential. Please help me choose a motor, psu and drive.
  10. Hey guys, I thought I would share this project here. I am not sure that I can give an exact guide as I found this on the iracing forum but I will post the link to the iracing thread and if anyone has any questions feel free to contact me and I will lead you to all of the necessary information. I take no credit for the Teensy USB conversion portion of this project as it is all another persons work. I simply came up with my own way of utilizing this adapter by mounting outside of the rim. Ok, my goal was to convert my current Fanatec rim as well as any future fanatec rim I may use to USB. The caveat was I only wanted to purchase one USB adapter and I did not want disassembly or modification of the rims to be required. I also wanted to complete this project for less than $20 (not including rim). While most of this project will be difficult for others to complete due to certain parts being difficult to obtain the actual USB conversion aspect may be interesting in itself. The adapter I used is the teensyLC ($17 on ebay) wired and loaded with firmware according to this thread at iracing:http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3343242.page There is also a github guide here about the teensy based USB conversion: https://github.com/darknao/btClubSportWheel I started with my SimuCUBE direct drive system. I purchased this kit from Tomo at Sim Racing Bay therefore I am lucky enough to have the Fanatec base side QR adapter he makes. This is one of the components which is required and also difficult to obtain unless you happen to have purchased your DD setup from Sim Racing Bay. The next item I had on hand was a spare Fanatec base side wiring harness. Of course I also had the CSW rim I was converting. So, in order to use one adapter with multiple rims the adapter itself needed to be outside of the rim and be able to connect to the rim using the standard wiring harness/plug that is inside the rim from the factory. This is where the base side harness comes in. Instead of wiring my adapter to the rim PCB directly or to a JST 2.0 8 pin connector and plugging it into the rims PCB I decided to solder my adapter to the spare base side harness I had lying around. I could then fit this harness inside the Fanatec base side QR which came with my DD system. Fortunately Tomo machined these adapters to precise tolerances and there is also a lip machined inside the hub at the perfect point for the plug to rest. This allows the harness fit snugly inside the custom Fanatec QR and also allows the plug to rest against the lip at the perfect depth. When the rim is installed the plugs mate perfectly, and connection is made. This solved the problem of being able to attach various Fanatec rims quickly and easily with only one USB adapter. Next was the concern of housing the USB adapter. What I decided to do was utilize a steering wheel spacer. I was planning on moving my motor back anyways so I already had this on order. This piece is not in the photos as it has not yet arrived but I will update the project pictures once it is completed. You will be able to see in the pics how the adapter will be housed inside the spacer. Basically the spacer will mount to the custom Fanatec QR and allow enough space for the USB adapter to fit inside comfortably. The other side of the spacer will mount to the split bushing on the motor axle. Between the motor split bushing and the steering wheel spacer there will be 6 5mm bolt spacers. These will create a gap between the motor and steering wheel spacer so the USB cable can fit through. I will fasten the USB cable to the spacer in some fashion to prevent and tension on the micro USB connection during use. Of course I will be using a typical coiled USB cable. And that all there is to it, I will have a hub mounted on the axle of my motor that will allow me to mount any stock Non Modified CSW rim or hub (excluding the Xbox hub) directly to my direct drive wheel and maintain button and LED functionality. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask. Here are the pics I have so far, as you can see the adapter is covered in heat shrink tubing for protection. The red heat shrink is only covering the unused wires for safety. I will add more pics once the spacer arrives and I can move further with the project. This is the spacer I will use to house the adapter.

    Fs. Argon osw kit.

    Ok, so i have just purchased this kit from another isr user , and have had some personal things come up. As it sits i have not even had time to hook it up, but other things need my attention at the present time. I'm looking to get $800 + shipping, but am willing to negotiate. Will send pics of all upon request..
  12. I have one Fanatec QR Adapter for the OSW Direct Drive Wheel made by Tomo Meglic. It allows for any Fanatec Wheel (Except for the CSL P1 Steering Wheel) to be used with a Direct Drive Servo. This is his newest version of the adapter, and comes with 5 holes on the interior to ensure the Clubsport Harness is securely fastened. Typically you can only get this part by buying one of Tomo's pre-built kits, but since I will no longer be needing mine, it is for sale. I am asking for $125 for the part, it is extremely high quality, made in low batches, difficult to find, but overall worth the cost. The only reason I will not be using it in the future is that I plan to use a Momo Racing Wheel instead. Feel free to PM me with any questions. Thanks!
