    Is there a chance in future updates that an external plugged in TH8A is not fixed as L1 and R1 buttons so that we can use it as an handbrake without loosing manual sequential shifting by the paddles?

    PCars 2 not recognising USB keyboard and anything emulating one is known and coming in a patch. It should work as you intend once implemented.

    For Me WRX makes absolutly no sense if the Handbrake is mapped to a Button on my steering wheel. Every proper Rally related Simcade ourdays does Feature multiple input devices for exactly doing this...Rally Car is = Steerable with handbrake and it has to be like that!

    So the patch didn't change this obviously. The "handbrake" is still recognized as L1/R1. Any word from SMS if this is going to be changed?

    I use the TH8A as a handbrake and here's how:

    Leave the H-Gate in. Assign "Gear ?" as handbrake. I use gear 7 because I never use H-gate on 7 geared cars.

    Its not perfect, but it works!

    I have a solution for this based on Gufazi’s idea and it works perfectly!

    I use 3rd Gear with Bungie cord, a few cable ties and a bit of foam to stop it springing into 4th - just as good as the sequential shifter plate.

    How do I post an image to show you guys?
