Custom made gear shifters for the Fanatec McLaren steering wheel.
Availability: Out of Stock - on backorder and will be dispatched once in stock.
Manufacturer: Sim Racing Machines
£110.00

These are a new design based on my well respected Carbon Fibre gear shifters.  The new version are made to make them easier to fit to the Fanatec Mclaren steering wheel.

Whats new?

  • Easier to fit than my previous version.
  • No cutting or drilling of the steering wheel.
  • Upgrade is fully reversable.
  • Mixture of Carbon Fibre and 3D print.
  • Plug for cable on shifter so it can be removed without opening the wheel again.

The main body of the shifter and the shifter arm are the same as my existting versions.

  • 3mm thick multi layer real carbon fibre
  • Cherry IP67 micro switch
  • Black steel pin
  • Ball Bearings on the arm for smooth reliable action
  • Black coated N52 5x15mm magnets

To make these I have changed the bottom and back carbon fibre parts with a custom 3D printed part.  This part as an intergral part ot the gear shifter and allows it to be attched to the wheel via the QR bolts.  I have also made the bottom of the 3D part so that it fits into the magnet hole on the wheel.

To fit...

  • Fanatec McLaren GT3 V1 *
  • Fanatec McLaren GT3 V2 

Included...

  • 2 x Gear shifters with McLaren paddles fitted
  • 2 x Carbon Fibre mounting plates
  • 2 x Mounting spacers (needed if using an SRM conversion kit)
  • 2 x JST PH 2.0 to Larger plugs on the wheel.
  • 2 x M3 x 8mm Black button head bolts

Fitting...

Proper guide to follow but these are the basic steps:

  1. Open the McLaren wheel
  2. Undo the wheel PCB
  3. Remove the Orange shifter paddle
  4. Remove the standard magnets
  5. McLaren V2 -
    1. Remove the shifter plug and optionally the shifter microswitches
    2. Fit the new cable to the wheel PCB plug and poke the cable through the magnet hole
  6. McLaren V1 -
    1. Cut the big plug off the new cable
    2. Solder the cable to the pad on the wheel PCB
    3. Poke the cable out of the magnet hole
  7. Re-fit the wheel PCB
  8. Remove the rubber insets on the shifter risers
  9. Plug the cable into the back of the shifter.
  10. Push the shifter into place on the wheel
  11. Remove the 2 bolts from the wheel QR
  12. Fit the Shifter mount to both the Shifter (2 x M3 bolts) and the QR

I also offer a fitting service for UK customers.  You must ship me your wheel at your own cost.  I will then fit the shifters and return the wheel to you.  I can offer this service for other areas, but shipping to the UK from overseas is rather expensive.

* V1 wheel requires some soldering.
