Creosim MPS-15 Paddle Shifter Upgrade for Fanatec Rims

The Simpit presents our review of the Creosim MPS-15 Paddle Shifters.  These paddle shifters are made as a direct replacement for the stock shifters within the Fanatec Formula Wheel Rims or their Universal Hub.   

The stock shifters are fine shifters that operate in the traditional way of having a lever attached to a spring for tension, and then at some point in the throw they engage a button or switch to make a shift.  This is standard, it works well and it is the industry standard for our wheels.  The Creosim MPS-15 shifters operate in a totally different way, that provides a much more positive tactile feedback of shift and prevents miss shifts or "Ghost Shifting".  The MPS-15 use a magnetic connection to read the shift from the driver.  THe paddle shifter will not move, until that magnetic connection, and at that moment the shift is made. 

In this review Shaun gives you all of the details about these shifters and he also covers the installation process.  From there he takes them out on track to talk about the difference between these and the stock 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.
