With the launch of this new product from Fanatec I keep getting asked which conversion kit will be needed for it. Well the answer is that until I get hold of one I cannot tell. It looks likely that the way it works will be much the same as the BME (Podium Button Module Endurance) as the connection looks to be the same. Therefore the 6.2x conversion kit will be needed.
There is a strong possibility that I we will need to add new code to the conversion kit firmware for the new product and there is absolutely no guarantee that we will be able to make it work at all. What I can tell you is that we will be trying.
We ordered 2 units the day they were available for sale, but despite them showing as in stock it looks like they were not and we will be waiting until late November at the earliest.
We also will be looking at the possibility of making the BME and the Rally boxes work with their own conversion and not requiring the Podium or Universal Hub. This will open up lots of interesting opportunities…. so watch this space for updates.
