Using a Fanatec ClubSport V2.5 base with a "standard" wheel?

Just ordered a V2.5 base and Formula V2 wheel and wanna use a "standard" round wheel for things like drifting but want to do this on a budget as I can't afford another wheel right now. So I'm curious if I can just use the Fanatec Quick Release with a racing wheel from my Lotus (as smaller, lighter one due to the small car) - so my question is MUST I have a Universal Hub or if I don't care about having buttons on the wheel, etc (as I have a Fanatec SQ shifter and hand brake so I don't need any buttons or paddles) - is that fine? As I also have a button box, etc I don't need any buttons on the wheel, I just want something round that I can use for drifting.

Thanks, really looking forward to the new base as I'm upgrading from the Thrustmaster TX that I've had for about 5 years. I'm gonna see if I can take the electronics off my 599XX Evo wheel and just adapt the Fanatec quick release to it and use it (or as I said just use one of my Sparco wheels for my Lotus Exige).

Unfortunately, you cannot just use the quick release and another rim unless specifically designed to do so 

From where I sit, you have two options; 

1. Buy the Fanatec Universal HUB for $349.99 USD or

2. Get the Sim Racing Machines Fanatec Emulator for less than half the cost:
