Back-Ordered. ETA: Q4 of 2020.
The Pro-Sim Lite simulator sequential gear shifter has been developed in conjunction with Quaife Engineering. The internals is based on an original real Quaife gearbox design that gives the same in gear ‘clunk’ feeling from a real car. The completely solid and robust design weighs a reassuring 2.8kg as it is made from hardened steel providing outstanding durability.
This is a USB device that is compatible with nearly any racing game including iRacing, rFactor, Assetto Corsa, Project CARS, DiRT Rally and many many more on PC and can be used on PS4 with the use of a keyboard USB emulator PCB (not supplied).
The key point of our gear shifters has always been the feel and reliability and this was the key to our design brief again for the Lite version of our sequential shifter. We started with the shift mechanism which is CNC machined and case hardened for prolonged life and also features the same principle as our V1 and top of the range shifter. We then packaged it between two powder coated plates for a simple solution. These two plates can be mounted to any flat surface via 4 M6 bolts. For gear actuation, we use magnetic switches for the ultimate in reliability so there is no mechanical wear that you might find with other shifters using push button activation for example.
The shifter is supplied as a stand-alone USB game controller device and will be compatible with all major racing games on PC. It may also be possible to connect the shifter to a USB keyboard emulator for use on Playstation® for example.
