    As i want to upgrade from my thrustmaster T500 wheel to a Fanatec Clubsport wheelbase, i want to ask if it is possible to have my modded Thrustmaster F1-rim put on the Fanatec CSW base?
    Have seen on the internet that there are wheel adapters on the market.
    Just do not know if it is possible to mount this on a Fanatec wheel base, regarding different connections the wheel and the base have.

    As i have spend alot of money on that F1 rim (sli-pro, carbon), i wanted to know if there is some mod available to achieve this.
    Thanks in advance

    Why go from a t500 with a beefy motor to a Fanatec CSW with two small and cheap motors? If it's purely for the looks, I'd personally would not bother and save up more for maybe an ecci or wait for the new simxperience accuforce wheel. That way you won't have to bother about upgrading wheelbases anymore.

    completely agree, i've wasted so much money buying several other wheel bases only to end up with dcci in the end .. wished I went straight to that when I started this hobby

    I assume the Thrusmaster add on doesn't go with the ecci?
    However, it looks like it's a very solid and high quality wheel base.

    You think an adaptor for the T500 F1 add on would work with the ECCI?

    Guess it will not, I think in that show it is mentioned that most probably it will be in a similar price dimension as the other high end wheels (nothing for married folks :) ).

    I used the universal hud adaptor which makes things easier.
    i used a dremmel to remove the release on the back of the rim.
    That piece unscrews from the back of rim.
    Im using the f1 display to connect all the buttons,paddels,encoders and leds.

    The rim and quick release is weighing in at 520g
    It wheels feels great so far but still loads of work left to do.

    You can see in the pictures i just screwed on f1 display to see what it looks like :p
    I will be cutting the rim to fit the display at the weekend.

    Could you post some pictures of rim .

    Edit: 1520g not 520g

    How can the rim only be 520 kg. Or is that somehow 520 kg for both the fanatec hub AND rim?

    My stock Thrustmaster F1 wheel weight in over a KG I believe :)

    If someone wouldn't mind answering a question I have...why use a Thrustmaster F1 rim on a Fanatec CSW base instead of just using the Fantatec Formula rim?
