    Hi,

    Im already thinkin about a little DIY kit to offer so that experienced modders can mod their wheels on their own.
    Kits like the 5 Encoders with scales and Knobs and so on. I got also some new Scale options available, will post a pic in some minutes.

    You get the scales from page 1 cause the above are just "prototypes" and not available,maybe in 1-2 weeks but i dont think you like to wait for it.:)

    You can already buy a set, but it would be 5 encoders with knobs, caps for the knobs as 5 scales with colour of choice or clear. I offer with the encoders cause they are also "modded" to fit the knobs and the wheel.

    modMate - Wehre I can buy this? can I buy un-modded knob (5 set) with the 5 scales colours? can you provide link please.
    I am using Leo's rotary switch and I can mod it myself. I already have 4 swtiches and 2 encoders. just received 6 knitters and 6 NKKs this afternoon.

    You can write me a mail here:

    Mod-edit

    As for the modding, it means you have to shorten the metal shaft of the encoders by 60-70%, hope you got a tool with a diamond cut.

    Hi Modmate, i've sent you a PM (or conversation I believe it is called here) to inquire about doing my wheel. I really love what I see and the fact that you actually respond to people is awesome! :) Look forward to hearing from you.

    Very nice mod!! Did you ever get a replacement switch for the paddle shifters? I was practicing and racing 3 times a week for 3 months and TM replaced 5 switches for me. If you run this wheel a lot those paddle won't last. Again, great work!!

    Hi,

    I actually work on a replacement for the shifter buttons, a bit tricky to offer it as a DIY kit but i guess its possible to finish within the next month.
