Wheel Base side Conversion kit

For Direct Drive with the Fanatec Male QR
Availability: In stock

Choose which type of USB cable.

Spare coiled USB Cable and Female wheel plug


These are conversion kits to go between the male Fanatec QR and the motor shaft mounting plate on a direct drive wheel.

You must already have, or include the optional Sim Racing Bay Male QR for this to work.  The SRB QR is a 70mm PCD hole pattern and will attach to just about all direct drive systems including the AccuForce, SC1, SC2 and Leo Bodnar systems.

Sim Racing Bay

This kit basically allows you to connect any Fanatec CSW wheel to your direct drive system without any modification to the wheels themselves.  The electrical connection in the male QR will feed a signal to a Teensy LC board in the conversion kit.  A coiled USB cable then connects from the kit to the PC.

Just like our wheel conversion kits, this product will enable all of the features in the Fanatec wheel to work as a USB device.  So you will have access to all of the buttons, shifters, hat switch, toggle switch, rotary, LED's and display.  Even the rumble will work.

The USB cable can be replaced if it should wear out.

From November 2019 the product has another upgrade.

We have redesigned the Aluminium case which has been custom made to our own design.  The new case allows the PCB to bolt to the Aluminium directly giving a good grounding and a much neater look.  The USB cable housing is now inset into the Aluminium.  The case can be supplied with threaded bolt holes or passthrough depending upon your mounting requirements.

We have also invested in a new QR mounting using larger / stronger wires and a plug that clips on rather than just pushing on.

From December 2018 this product has had an upgrade.

It now uses a custom PCB to ensure excellent grounding and a very secure mounting of the Teensy and plugs.  The electronic pass-through has also had an upgrade and now uses automotive grade female pins.

Works with the following Fanatec wheels...

  • Formula Black
  • Formula Carbon
  • Formula ESPORTS
  • BMW GT2
  • Porsche 918 RSR
  • Universal Hub
  • Universal Hub XBox Edition
  • CSL P1

  • Blue PS4 F1 Wheel
  • Formula V2
  • Podium Hub
  • Universal hub with the Porsche 911 addon
  • McLaren GT3 V2 (working on)
  • WRC


This option will include a spare colied USB cable and a spare female pin wheel plug.  These can both wear out and rather than being unable to drive having spares on hand will get you back racing more quickly.
