    Just a few pics of my latest wheel. Its based on a genuine Momo 'Formula' race wheel :cool:. I have fitted an SLI-M, six knitter buttons, four rotarys and a couple of toggle switches. When its finished it will also be fitted with a 'quick release' hub ala F1 Style :wink:.

    I have already started the next wheel (I know, finish this one first) that will include a graphical LCD screen!

    Hope you like:D

    Oh, by the way, this wheel will be up for sale soon (to fund the next one lol) I will sell it as a complete setup, with SLI-M, Knitters/switches etc all wired up and ready to go :) PM me if anyone is interested

    This wheel mod has altered a tad since my last post, it has now seen the rough end of my hacksaw, an 'experimental' LCD display is going in and a few other features too:tongue:

    Bit scary cutting up a £150 worth of Momo wheel, but it all came out quite well in the end (Phew). I havent made the base yet, the components are just layed out on a cardboard plan at the moment, but it gives you all an idea of the final design:wink:

    Too bad you couldn't get that LCD screen and everything down a bit more. I think it would look great if you could get the LCD either flush with the metal or even inset a little bit and have to cut a notch out.

    This is unbelievable work, Brain! Good grief!

    I guess you're looking for a boatload of money for that thing, huh? Where did you even learn how to mod a wheel like that in the first place?!?!?!?

    lol sorry for the 20 questions, but that is stunning.

    Thanks Danny:D

    Errrr, well, I kinda just make em up in my study come Race rig come workshop room lol! Its a hobby and just good fun to mess about with this stuff to be honest.:D

    As for price, well, I guess this wheel would be around £550 :frown: Its the cost of the Momo wheel to start with, around £170:frown:. SPA do some nice similar wheels for alot less tho. That is for the whole thing mind, all built and just bolt on and plug in the USB lead :wink: I might be tempted to sell this one for a fair bit less in the not too distant future tho, let me know if anyone is interested?
