Another quick tip you could feature in a video... "cheap," or budget alternatives for "button boxes" and other input devices. For example, a simple USB 10-key number pad is an excellent low-budget alternative, and you can find some with larger buttons for under $10. Though it's not as cool and stylish as an illuminated and labelled button box, it's small and light, and you can quickly mount it on your rig so it's just inches away from the wheel rim.

You are now the second person to recomend a USB number or keypad as a cheap, quick and easy button box.

I will try to grab one and feature it.

Some good ideas, I started out in Army Aviation as a crewchief, so I used checklists from the start. I always go thru mine and make sure that I have all my equipment set up and running before I go into a room. Good video.

Hey Shaun:

I was hoping to participate in the next race and on Simracing System it says it's at Fuji. Which version of Fuji should I download.

Thanks!

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

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!
