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.

While I can't imagine wanting an Hyundai interior, it is very well done and looks incredible. Well done.

I like War Thunder, it has some real decent triple screen graphics and sound for flying the airplanes. I prefer the bombers at Arcade Battle rating, but some of the radial engined fighters are a lot of fun too. Other than that, I am an avaid truck driver driving a lot in American Truck Simulator and European Truck Simulator 2. They even have some really good multiplayer for both games, the ETS2 has a Winter mod built in, it looks like Winter with snow on everything and falling. Both games even have a short range "cb radio" that works in line of sight, you just set the microphone in the game and then it goes to a hot mike and people can hear you, but if you get out of sight, you can't hear each other. Now I wish other games would get the technology and incorporate it.
