High quality conversion kit for Fanatec wheels
This kit allows many Fanatec 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 our own custom PCB 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.

Fanatec Formula wheels
This kit will work on the Formula Black, Formula Carbon and Formula ESport wheels.
We have 2 different kits avavilable, one for the older style Formula rim and one for the newer wheels based on the Formula V2. Both kits support all the wheel functions including the display, LED's and rumble.
The Formula V2 wheels also support the Podium advanced shifter module including the clutches (Dual clutch only, no bite point control) For the Formula V2, F1 2018 LE and F1 2019 LE please purchase this kit instead rather than this one. Click here
Fanatec BMW GT2 wheel V1 (NOT V2)
This wheel is fully supported and out kit will allow full functioallty including the display and rumble.
Instructions for this wheel will be available soon
Porsche 918 RSR wheel
This wheel is fully supported and our kit will allow full functionallity including LED's, display and rumble.
Instructions for this wheel will be available soon
Universal Hub (NOT V2)
The universal hub is fully supported. All buttons, shifters and the Display will work. You can also use the Podium Advanced Paddle Module and all 4 shifters will work together with the clutch paddles. You will have 2 seperate clutches, or hand controls but no bite point functionallity.
The Universal Hub conversion is a little more expensive because it comes with a 15mm spacer so that the display is not blocked by the conversion kit.
Mclaren GT3 wheel V1 Not V2
Our conversion for this wheel gives full functionallity of the buttons, shifters and display. The clutches will also work and include limited bite point functionallity. The rotary switches work differently on the conversion with some great control enhancements including changing the button that the right toggle switch activates based on the right rotary position.
The Mclaren conversion is a little more expensive because it requires an additional mounting plate and spacer.
The Mclaren wheel must have firmware V25 or lower - this can only be changed using a Fanatec wheel base.
Currently our conversions are not compatible with the Podium hub, BMW GT2 V2, RS, Universal Hub V2, CSL Hub, WRC, CSL BMW or the Porsche 911 button box even on the Universal Hub. We are working on a soloution for bot of these priducts.
Although our conversion will work eletroniaclly on the P1 and P1 Elite wheels there is no way to fit the kit or a QR onto these wheels.
USB Cable Options
All conversions come with a very high quality coiled USB cable which we have custom made. The cables have a strong covering and are very robust. Each cable is 5mm diameter and includes shielding and now has a gold plated USB plug.
The standard cable option will have a Male USB A plug which can be plugged directly into your PC, a USB hub or a USB extension cable.
We offer an optional DIN cable. These use the same coiled cable but the USB A plug is replaced with a high quality, metal male pin DIN plug. The DIN option includes a 1.5m non coiled USB cable with the Female DIN plug on one end and a Male USB A plug on the other end. The Male and Female DIN plugs screw together making a very secure join. Basically the DIN option is a very high quality 1.5m USB extension.
There are 2 DIN options. Inline which is a standard female DIN plug and Panel mount which is a female plug that can be bolted into an 18mm diameter hole. We supply an angled mounting bracket with the Panel mount option which can bolt to an aluminium rig.
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.

DISCLAIMER - YOU MUST AGREE TO THESE TERMS IF YOU PURCHASE THIS KIT
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.
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.
