    Nice , it looks like your doing it the professional way , really hope it turns out as good as I think it will ---- I was considering doing my Roso last year the same way but I'm in VR all the time so I don't see the point ------- but I'm keeping a watchful eye on your progress maybe I'll do the same .

    I just finished making my last wheel last week , got most of my stuff of Leo Bognar bit pricey but great boards to work with for buttons switches .

    Ps , will you take photos all the way through the build just for me and others if we go the same way .
    Could you also document the list of parts you are using, I would really appreciate that .
    Cheers .

    sure .... I will make more photos of all that I will do.
    Send me photos of your wheel I would see him.
    My materials are simdisplay. The LCD display works only with its materials.

    That's great, Giulio! I also own a Roso wheel and I am planning to do exactly the same modification (adding a LCD screen). I will follow your progess with great interest. Cheers!

    Giulio, it looks awesome! So the leds in your pictures are the original SLI-pro ones, aren't they? I see you moved the six auxiliary LEDs to two vertical columns instead of their original two horizontal rows position. Was it easy to take them off the SLI-pro PCB? And what happened with the 7-segment digits? Could you post some pictures of the PCB manipulation process? Great work! And inspiring!

    I'm not doing the job directly to me but a friend of Monza.
    He just sends me news updates.
    It seems to work quite stunning

    Awesome! Can you give us any details of the electrical connections? Are the LCD secreen connections included in the electrical quick release, or do they need a separate USB cable?

    there is a minor inconvenience ....
    I discovered that the clutch does not work, the sensors that mountains are not going well because need power + 5v going well on slipro but the new display because no power is at + 3.3v and now I have to sort of new sensors and there will be others delays:(
