    Hello everyone, I'm in the process of trying to finish my rig and my direct drive wheel needs a button box.

    I have been eyeing up the one from SIMxperience. It's $400 and seems to work with my quick release. The only thing I can't get past is the cord.

    Before I go spending $400 on it can anyone recommend something better whether it be wired or not wired. Or if anyone has that button box perhaps they could talk about how they like it.

    Realistically I would love to have some kind of Wireless option whether it be Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. I'm not sure how possible or realistic this is I know they exist but there doesn't seem to be a lot of info out there unless you are going to DIY the entire thing and that is beyond my ability at the moment.

    Thanks!

    Thank you. Actually yes I have seen this before. It just required a lot of work on my end I was looking for maybe a commercially available version.

    Thank you! Unfortunately that too looks like a dude DIY option that I just don't have the time for... I wish someone made a complete button box with this technology...
