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.

Supplied with

  • Kit (PCB and Aluminium enclosure)
  • Coiled USB cable
  • Female QR plug using gold plated automotive grade pins
  • Aluminium QR plug mount
  • Steel QR plug washer
  • 5 x M4 bolts for QR plug
  • 6 x M5 45mm long black oxide bolts
  • 6 x M5 black washers
  • 6 x M5 black nylock nuts

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.

Incomaptible wheels

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.

A work of art
Simon, this is a work of art! It installed together absolutely like a glove with all the buttons including the D-pad working flawlessly.
Thanks for a great product and even better service.

Awesome Hardware and Amazing Service
I have nothing but great things to say about Simon at SRM. Promptly answered all my questions. The Direct Drive - Fanatec Wheel side conversion kit was packaged nicely and professionally. All the parts needed to do the complete install were inside the box. Instructions were emailed to me and easy to read and understand. Will be ordering a few more items from SRM in the near future!

Quality and Easy to use.
Fantastic quality. Truly plug and play. Just mount this between the Simracingbay/Fanatec quick release and the shaftmount adaptor and thats it. Connect your wheel and everything works just as it should when using with Fanaleds. If your thinking about taking the next step up from consumer wheels and getting into an OSW, this adaptor combined with the Fanatec CSW/Uni Hub gives plenty of options for different rims at a great price point.

Final Piece of the puzzle
Moving from a Fanatec to an OSW SRB system was easy and a lot less expensive with this kit.

Great quality and easy to install!! Works like a charm.

Great Company To Do Business With !!!!!!!
I had to share this because ya'll need to know what a great company this is.
I bought one of the original types last July.  I had some issues that  Simon patiently walked me thru.
Recently I started having issues again and got in touch with Simon.
In stead of having me try a hundred different things and assuming there was nothing wrong with his product, he kindly offered to sent me a new unit at no charge.
In addition, this replacement was one of the new upgraded versions!!!!!!!
We need to spread the word on SRM.  Simon is very customer focused and I would endorse any of his products.
Thanks again Simon

Totally AMAZING!
I wanted to write this review sooner, but here i am.
First of all i want to say thank you to Simon, seriously, hands down this is the best customer service i have ever received, i've ordered lots and lots of things online, and never had a support reply so fast in my life.  And Simon even redesigned this item for me to resolve my issues and sent to me.  I don't think i will ever find this kind of customer service anywhere else.  Thank you Simon again.

Onto the conversion kit, honestly, i've read a lot on the forums prior to building my OSW.  There are some forums that show the process, however getting a fanatec female pin adapter without buying a fanatec wheel base is impossible. even if you do have a adapter, after buying the circuit board, housing piece and all the other stuff, the price isnt that much cheaper.  If I'm already spending $3k on osw, fanatec wheel + HE pedals, might as well just buy this to save yourself the hassle of programming and soldering, its simple as plug in and play. very sturdy, well made.
I highly recommand this to anyone.  I dont think anyone else makes this, thanks to Simon again to make the fanatec wheel for OSW possible.

Outstandig service and a great product
Simons customer service is outstanding. He promtly answers all questions and has that little extra that make you feel valued as a customer.
This kit is really well made. The machining is top notch and everything just works right out of the box.
I am glad I bought this instead of sourcing parts for a DIY that would never have been as streamlined as this kit.

Perfect for your original Fanatec wheels
I bought this conversion kit because I want to keep my 4 Fanatec wheels original.
It is really perfect; mount and go!
Exceeds expectations. Perfect fit on my new OSW motor.
No complains from any game (so far).
I can recommend this to anyone wanting to use their Fanatec wheels on non-Fanatec motors.
Shipping is fast.

Perfect
Very nice piece of hardware, nothing moves when assembled on my mige, every buttons/leds recognized as expected on a formula carbon.
Nice communication from Simon by the way, who kept me informed about little issues with EU deliveries and Brexit with GLS, he even offered another carrier at his charge.

Thank you so much for everything, I know where to go now for such quality products and customer services :).

Blown away by the quality!
Ordered this Fanatec USB Conversion kit along with the Quick Release adapter and received it 2 days later. I've got to say that I'm blown away by the quality of the products, they far exceeded my expectations. I've not fitted them yet as still waiting in my new DD base but felt I had to leave positive feedback as I'm so impressed.

Simon really does offer a premier service and replies to any questions that you may have without delay. I can't recommend Sim Racing Machines enough. Thank you Simon.
