    Hi everyone. New here. I've been trying to source a slew of knobs, switches, shifters, clutches that are used on actual F1 wheels/rims. Or at least deceptively similar.

    Many who mod their thrustmaster wheels or embark on creating their own from scratch seem to use ones that are similar (the obligatory nkk and the like) but seemingly not quite the quality of the real deal. All this with the exception of the Sala Motorsports wheel who've managed to source some original parts and i guess have fabricated the rest?

    Anyway, i figured i and other sim modders could take advantage of the internet and crowd source any of these authentic parts. I'd say post anything that can be found on modern F1 rims. Obviously led displays are covered by leo bodnar, but anything else if fair game.

    The NKK ones are pretty good, what seems to be the issue with them? :cautious:

    NKK are fine, but all I've managed to find are the generic colored buttons. The unique dials and knobs as pictured below have been quite troublesome to source:
