The featured RPM bar is based on the Simhub software and is therefore compatible with all common racing simulations. It consists of 16 individually controllable LEDs, which are operated via an Arduino (Nano) and is connected to the PC via a USB cable.
Important: The dimensions of the NeoPixel boards vary. The project shown here is adapted to the size of the linked board (which also differs from the manufacturer’s specifications). For other boards, however, the height and width of the .STL files can be scaled accordingly.
The project featured today is based on the Simhub software and is therefore compatible with all common racing simulations. The material costs for the electronic components are around 15-20€, plus costs for 3D printing and wiring if necessary.
Polsimer, a manufacturer of simracing hardware that is reasonably priced compared to other manufacturers, has published an offer for the GT2 Button Plate Alu this weekend. Instead of around 340€, the Polish supplier sells it until Sunday for 290€ including taxes.
As buttons you can choose between buttons of the model GQ12B or for about 50€ extra charge of the model MPS 103 F (also known as Knitter_Buttons). Also optional are the RGB LEDs in the upper area, which should be chosen in any case for the small surcharge of only about 17€, if you should decide for the Button Plate.
As encoders are installed high-quality CTS288s, which give a very nice feedback and a 7-way Funky-Switch completes the overall package.
Carbon fiber shifter paddles with magnets
7x MPS103F Knitter Switches or GQ12B Onpow
1x FunkySwitch (7 functions)
2x CTS288V rotary encoders with push buttons
Two sets of mounnting bolts: 6pcs M5x60mm and 6pcs M5x70mm
Idustrial type spring elastic cable with WEIPU connectors and additional extender USB cable and mounting housing
Brake dragging in relation to iRacing has been on everyone’s lips in recent days and an end to the issue is far from in sight.
Brake dragging in itself is not a novelty and has been used for ages, even in real racing series. Put simply, it allows you to get temperature into the brake and thus also the tire by braking, steering and accelerating at the same time.
The problem in iRacing is that brake dragging is possible without the side effects that occur in reality:
Increased tire pressure
Massive load on brakes and tires
The user PabloGz has summarized the problem in his video including a short demonstration:
Moza Racing’s product range has two new additions to look forward to: a 9 Newton-meter entry-level wheelbase and, as a supplement to the existing GT steering wheels, a compact Formula wheel.
R9 Wheel Base
The Direct Drive Wheel Base, which is smaller in both power and dimensions compared to MOZA Racing’s R16, has 9 Newton meters to match the name and is equipped with an aluminum housing. Moza promises a simple setup and a latency-free wireless power and data connection between the base and the in-house steering wheels. The base is available in black and white.
In Germany, the base can be purchased from Sim-Motion. The price of 439€ is a real challenge to Fanatec’s CSL-DD, which costs 349.95€ (5 NM) and 479.95€ (8 NM).

MOZA GS Steering Wheel
The also new Formula_Wheel from MOZA Racing stands out mainly due to its front plate made of Forged Carbon and the adjustable RGB lighting of the buttons. The Alcantara-covered grips and the shape are very similar to the Fanatec Formula Wheels, but at 300mm, the steering wheel is a good deal larger. The GS Steering Wheel from MOZA Racing comes standard with a Dual Clutch and Magnetic Shifter Paddles made of 3 millimeter thick Fordged Carbon as MOZA writes on their website. The equipment is rounded off by a shift indicator, which is also equipped with RGB LEDs.
The steering wheel can also be purchased from Sim-Motion in Germany. The price is 499€, which puts it at the lower end of the market.
Motedis has been known for years as a supplier of aluminum profiles and also simrigs. These were and still are probably the best-selling kits, being appreciated mainly for their adaptability as well as stability, especially compared to ready-made solutions.
With the configurator now introduced, Motedis enables the selection from various options and also a flexible choice of the dimensions of the rig by allowing the width and length as well as the height to be adjusted as desired. You can choose between the following options:
Light (40 x 80 base frame)
Medium (40 x 120 base frame)
Heavy (40 x 160 base frame)
The dimensions of the rig can be selected as follows:
Just in time for the start of the second quarter in 2022, Nadeo has again released the 25 new tracks of the Spring 2022 Season. Also new are over 130 different items and blocks, which were directly used in the new tracks.
The maps are of course again divided into five different classes:
This review of the Gran Turismo DD Pro can be seen as an extension of the review of the CSL DD, since the two wheel bases are not fundamentally different from a technical point of view. The Fanatec GT Pro is compatible with Sony consoles due to an additional built-in chip.
Consequently, the main focus of this review is on the included steering wheel. A review of the CSL pedals will be published separately at a later time.
Fanatec has just released the landing page for the new Podium Button Module Rally (link to page*). The rally steering wheel was developed by Fanatec in cooperation with the M-Sport World Rally Team and is accordingly the first full-fledged rally wheel in the manufacturer’s range.
Here you will find a somewhat more colourful dashboard this time, which is ideal for the 5 inch VoCore screen. Wallpapers with a stronger colour scheme are also in the Dash and can be selected (manually) in Simhub.
