G27 Quick Release mod part II
Previously, in Part I: The idea here was to mount a F1 wheel (SRW-S1 from SteelSeries) on the G27 with a quick release system, to be able to easily switch between the stock rim and the new one. All that trying to keep the cost low enough.
So, now that i have the quick release hub and the adapter plate from Ignition-Controls, i can see what i can do. I was not sure if the adapter plate was enough by itself to fit on the g27 and the quick release, but luckily, it was. No need of the base plate. I removed the inside part of the QR in order to pull some cables for buttons or other stuff later.
I can now mount any standard wheel to the G27 base, except, the g27 one is
not one of them. So, If I want to mount it, I'll need another adapter
Two solutions here: either buy another plate like the one I use for the wheel base, or made my own.
I choose the second option to keep the cost low, and since I already had a spare plywood plate laying around.
Buttons cables will go through the center hole, and be connected to the
original PCB. Except, connecting them by hand every
time will be a pain in the ass, and kind of defeat the purpose of the quick
I'll have to find a better way to handle the connection between the wheel (any wheel actually) and the G27 base (We'll see that on a next part).
Only one thing: The shifter paddles are a little bit far away from the wheel now, and even with my big hands, it's not easy to reach them. But I'll take care of that later.
Now that the G27 rim part is almost complete, it's time to work on the F1 wheel, cause, you know, that was the primary goal after all ;)
