F1 Wheel for Logitech G27

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by David Palavandishvili, Oct 3, 2013.

  1. Hello everyone,
    Today I'm starting new topic about my work...
    Few days ago I bought Logitech G27 & Thrustmaster F1 Ferrari addon (my old wheel - Thrustmaster F430 i'm giving to my friend).
    I also bought Quick release mechanism for my future project...

  2. SLI-Pro is good option for my project, but at this moment I'm waiting for SLI-F1, or SIM Race F1, or GS-Pro displays

  10. I decied to add Toggle Switches on USB cable and Power cable. I need advices how to add tham...

    it's easy on Power cable, it contains only two conductors (+ & -), I can cut one of them and add Toggle Switch...

    but on USB it's more difficult, because it contains 4 conductors... must I cut all of tham and add 4PDT Toggle Switch, like this?


    or can I cut several conductors ? (not all four)

    I found diagrams of USB...

    If i will cut only red line, or red and black, will it works correctly? I mean, if I will stay "data lines" connected, will it heart to my G27?

    Mid pack attack!

    Amazing work!
  12. I have two questions:
    1 is it possible to use different set of LEDs ( simple ones from eBay ) and connect them somehow to those in g27 wheel?
    2. Where I can find f1 wheel mode like that on pics above that I could connect to g27 with minimum DIY ?
  13. Don't be affraid...
    Just cutting the red wire will "switch" the device in off state...
    Might get a small (0,5 meter) USB extension and cut it there.
    So you keep the original wire intact.
  14. where can i get one of these quick releases from?
  15. Hi David

    What changes / additions did you need to make to the wiring so that the G27 detected the button presses on the Thrustmaster F1 wheel? Or does it all hook into the display?

    I'm about to undertake this same project.

    Many thanks
