High quality conversion kit for Fanatec wheels

This kit allows the Formula V2 and McLaren GT3 V2 wheels to work via USB without having to modify them.  It attaches between the motor and a Male Fanate Style QR allowing you to attach your wheels in the same way you would on a Fanatec wheel base.

The kit requires that to have the Sim Racing Bay Male Fanatec QR (Please select it as an option if you do not already have one)

The conversion uses the PCB from Leo Bodnar which we attach to our housing and the electical signals pass through the wheel QR pins.

Made from high quality Aluminium which is machined, sandblasted and then Anodised to a beutiful finish.

Using the conversion kit

Using this kit changes the way the wheels are recognised so you cannot use Fanatec software including FANALAB.  You use the Free FANALEDS software with the conversion kit to work LED's, Display and rumble functions.  Buttons and shifters use standard Windows drivers.

We reserve the right to change the colour of the supplied bolts depending on availability.
The Sim Racing Bay Male QR is made to the highest tollerence, unlike Fanatec wheel side QR's.  Some old Fanatec wheels may be tight on the QR but it is very rare to have a wheel that will not go on sucessfully.


Fanatec has asked us to say that they are unable to warranty their wheels that have been used on this kit or with a high torque OSW because they cannot guarantee that either will not damage their wheels.  If you purchase and use this kit from us you cannot make any warranty claim for damage to your Fanatec wheels... you use it at your own risk.  Purchasing the kit confirms that you accept this.  Please do not try and abuse their trust by attempting to make a claim.
