    Does anyone know the pin out of the hand brake (rj12) connector on the CSL Elite base?
    Either its top secret or my google-fu is failing me...
    Only 3 wires needed. Have not broke out the DVM yet.
    Thanks in advance.

    That wasn't too tough, didn't let the magic smoke out yet.

    RJ-12 (end of connector tab up) 1-2-3-4-5-6
    ---------
    6 - 5 vDC
    5 - Signal
    1 - ground

    10 Kohm linear pot

    Get a nice linear sweep throughout the rotation.

    The hard part will be getting the handle and linkage on the pot and in a substantially rugged assembly.

    I'll probably just end up bailing and purchase the Fanatec HB. But at least it's do-able.
