    Hi !

    Here the SRT shifter paddles. They are the first ones to use ball bearing to obtain the smoothest motion !

    Presentation in french :



    2) Features

    Magnetic paddle shifter with a bearing mounted lever. The stroke can be tuned. The horizontal position can be tuned. You can inscrease the shifter resistance bt adding more magnets.

    Well...no. But that makes me think that you should add a bass shaker in the steering wheel ^^

    Oh, my bad, thought off stick shifter, not paddles. Should have looked better at the picture.

    these are cool - tempted to buy a 3d printer just to make them !

    Wow these look really good! Amazing that you've managed to make them fully adjustable as well! I'm using a thrustmaster tx and the shifters feel so damn spungy! Wondering how noisy these are? A friend I speak to a lot has pretty noisy shifters and every time he changes gear all i hear is CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK Time to make something else!

    Well the noise depends on many thing, but the most important one is the spring or magnet force. I got two wheels. One use my shifter, the other use Leecarl shifters. Leecarl use stronger magnets, so when the shifter comes back into his neutral place, the sound is bigger...
