A small PCB that connects to the existing electronics in a Fanatec wheel rim to convert it to a standalone USB joystick controller.

The original Fanatec wheel rims must only connect to a Fanatec base, however this clever device allows them to be used with other force feedback systems.

The PCB can be fitted to the CSW Formula, BMW GT, Porsche 918 rims and also the CSW Universal Hub. When ordering for the CSW Universal Hub please select the Fanatec Conversion Cable to be 12 Pin

All of the buttons, shifters, thumb sticks, encoder, shift lights and LED displays are fully functional and the FFB button acts as a regular push button. As with the original wheel you will be able to set your optimal shift points for the shift LEDS and display different information on the LED displays using the Fanaleds software.

PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING - Good soldering and hand skills are required to fit the solder version to the Fanatec wheel rim. By you purchasing this device it is assumed that you possess these necessary skills. You will be fitting this at your own risk. This is a DIY assembly so we are not responsible for any damage you may cause to your steering wheel. The original Fanatec warranty may be void by fitting this device to your wheel. The solderless version is easier to install but still requires the steering wheel to be dissabled for installation.

We DO NOT offer a fitting service so please do not ask if you can send your Fanatec wheel to us. This service may be offered by other third parties and a list of recommended fitters will appear in due time.
