BasherBoards CPX Adapter Quick Review

With the Forza series recently coming to PC, many of us were left out of the fun due to the fact that multiple inputs were not supported.  But thanks to the BasherBoards CPX Adapter, that is no longer the case!



Finally, a solution for the small number of PC games that do not support multiple inputs.  The BasherBoards CPX Adapter is simple to install, and easy to use.  In my case, I am using a Thrustmaster T300 wheel base, with Fanatec Clubsport V2 pedals.  Being a Playstation 4 owner, I was extremely excited to finally get to play the Forza series, especially since now I could play on my Obutto Ozone rig on my PC.  That excitement turned to disappoinment when I realized neither Forza Apex, nor Forza Horizon 3 supported multiple inputs.  So I ordered a the CPX Adapter from BasherBoards, and it showed up via USPS a few days later.



For $55.00 (USD), you receive the CPX Adapter, and all necessary cables (with the exception of the PS2 cable, which came with my Fanatec Clubsport V2 pedals).  Installation is a breeze, and the instructions were easy to follow.  You simply plug the CPX adapter into your PC via USB.  Plug your wheel into your PC via USB, and plug your pedals into the CPX Adapter with the PS2 cable, and finally, use the supplied cable which comes out of the pedal input on your wheel, and into the CPX Adapter.  All of the connections are clearly labled, and easy to connect.  This is a well designed piece of engineering, and it is well built, out of a high quality plastic.



There are two small dials on the CPX Adapter, which allow you to adjust the brake sensitivity, and the brake rumble seperately.  There is nothing more you need to do to get the CPX Adapter up and running.  It fools your PC into thinking you are using the stock Thrustmaster pedals.  The CPX Adapter can also be used with the PS3, PS4 and XB1.  I can't wait to play GT Sport on my rig when it finally launches (hopefully, sometime later this year).





I don't think there is much more that needs to be said about the CPX Adapter from BasherBoards.  It simply works, and thats exactly what you want when you purchase a product like this.

Please leave any questions or comments below, and I will attempt to answer them in a timely fashion.  Thats all for today, and as Shaun says "I'll see you on the track!"

Do you know if this works with shifters. I'd like to use my clubsport shifter with my TX wheel and t3pa pedals.

Just received an email from Jon at BasherBoards. He days he has a prototype in the works that would allow you to use a shifter... Will have more on this as it becomes available

Unfortunately no, it does not work with shifters.

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.
