    So after stumbling on someone's post about Leo's new SLI device I put a project on hold and sent an email off into what I thought was the black hole of Internet email but imagine my surprise to see a response from Leo's team! Made me a bit giddy so I thought I'd share:

    "Hi Miguel,

    Thank you for your enquiry. Because of the large amount of interest with this new display, we are manufacturing quite a large number of these so we don’t run out within the first week We hopefully will have them available by the end of this month. We just need to get the software sorted finalized too.

    Best Regards"

    It's great to see Leo finally got some help! Communication has never been a strong point but his products were well worth it. I know where my birthday cash is going! XD

    Yeah they seem better at answering when you want to spend some money. Try getting an answer when you've got a problem though :rolleyes:

    It's not released yet. I posted the original pics in another thread.

    Cool to hear that it is coming so soon :D

    Im still working on a project where this thig is a big factorso that is pretty nice. I will probably have to wait a bit because I will be moving soon. Then again, by the time I can get it probably any bugs or problems with the initial version are sorted out :)

    I hope because of popular demand he can lower the price a bit. It also depends if you buy the housing for the display as well obviously.

    Since I'll be building my own wheel, future talk..., Im saving money on a crummy add-on in the first place :)
    (overall I'll be spending more than that unfortunately :p)

    Initially at least there would appear to be little difference between this and the SLI-Pro, other than the housing and the price. That makes it a very expensive housing. In addition there is now at least one less expensive alternative to the SLI-Pro.

    When the SLI-F1 is released, there is no alternative for F1 fans I think ;)
    And yes it is an expensive piece of kit, but I thought I read there were some improvements, I just can't find that post anywhere anymore. You could use more buttons and encoders with the SLI-F1 I believe.

    I just wish I had the money available...

    I just modified my SLI PRO to look like F1. Also, this mod made it fit into the Thrustmaster display area...

    The rubber on those grips look great, do you mind sharing how you created those?

    It's the Thrustmaster F1 wheel. Those are the standard grips.

    Nice work glowplug.

    I always thought the grips were bare plastic?

    Thing is, will it snug into the TM F1 wheel or would I have to change something on the wheel? People got me thinking, curse you. :p
