Hey guys, I have decided to build a wheel from scratch. It will be based on this year's MP4/25 steering wheel: (apologies for the big picture) The couple of sticking points/questions before I start in mid/late October are: What kind of wood is best (if it is the best material-bare in mind composites are difficult and expensive)? Theoretically, it should be as light as possible, but also strong enough to take the force feedback of a G27, having been scalloped to accept an SLI-PRO and buttons etc. How would I best go about making the handles? Suede/Alcantara? Rubber/silicone? Leather? The USB wire from the SLI-PRO, how is this best managed? Is it possible to route it through the wheel body itself? If not, how should I work it? How easy is it to modify the paddles on the G27? If it is difficult, how hard would it be to make paddle shifters on the wheel? On the above note, I am very keen on clutch paddles. Does anyone have some kind of tutorial on making them work reasonably well with potentiometers? Cheers guys-it's a big project, and I look forward to sharing it with you all.
