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.
