work in professional motorsports in the USA for KPAX Racing, we ran McLaren 650ís for a few years and still have one in the shop. I. Though it would be cool for ppl to see the fanatec wheel next to the real one.
Size difference is because they are sitting at different heights



The car pictured is the orange KPAX car you can choose in the game.

Didn't you say you worked for Risi at Daytona? Have you recently left KPAX or do you work for both?

Yes, both. I do IMSA with RISI, which hasnt been a full season the past few, and I do Pirelli World Challenge, or as it’s called now, Blancpain world challenge America , with KPAX. The 2 schedules don’t conflict(race weekends) , it just takes a little bit of planning.

We run Bentley now, this is the wheel, I have seen a sim company who use this switch panel to make their wheel.

You might want to suggest changing the colour of the pit or the stop button. Apparently its really easy to hit the stop button instead of the pit limiter. Happened twice in the Bathurst 12hr.

This pic is the new car (gen2) but itís the same exact wheel as the previous gen car.

M sport needs to change the strategy so that the ecu needs to see a second input, clutch pressure , no wheel speed, no throttle input as well as the button input. Pretty ridiculous that they didn’t do that, hopefully they learned their lesson!!

And it’s in the worst possible location to be mis hit.
