Plug in and play conversion kit for current Fanatec Wheels

I can fit this kit to any Fanatec wheel in 3 minutes – So it should not take more than 5 minutes for most people.

New for 2023 I have developed a new version of my conversion kit for Fanatec steering wheels.

This new version labelled 6x has the same electronics as version 5x and uses the same firmware.

What is different is that you do not have to open your steering wheel to fit the conversion kit, making it much easier to attach and use.

  1. No need to open your steering wheel.
  2. Kit plugs onto the QR pins
  3. Firmly bolted to the QR pin plug
  4. New Coiled USB cables with standard micro–B USB plug
  5. USB cable clamp
  6. Easy to swap USB cables
  7. Available in Black and Red Anodized Aluminum
  8. Attach almost any QR system or bolt direct to wheelbase

The 6x kit is a little taller than the 5x because the QR pins are left on the wheel.  With the 5x these are removed.

This kit will not replace the current 5x version but will be sold alongside.  It is very useful for wheels like the BMW M4 which is difficult to open.

The Kit includes…

  • Version 6x PCB with female pin plugs
  • Aluminum QR mounting either in Black or Red colour
  • Coiled USB cable (Male A to male micro).  gold plated connections
  • Custom USB clamp
  • USB cable plug cover
  • 5 x M5 16mm CAP bolts with black coating
  • 1 x M5 10mm CAP bolt with black coating
  • 5 x M4 35mm CAP bolts

Which colour would you like?




Your Fanatec wheel must have come with one of these Quick releases. The QR is not required for the conversion.


You can use this conversion kit on any wheel base.  The functions of the wheel are via the USB cable direct to your PC only the physical connection to the wheel base is needed by bolting the wheel direct to the wheelbase or using a QR system.

These are popular connection methods for various wheelbases.


PC only not suitable for console.

Should work with all games.

    Absolutely brilliant piece of kit.
    Thanks a lot to Simon to have included some additionnal screws for the WRC wheel.
    Following the instructions, conversion took like 10mn, plug the wheel to the PC and it’s detected and working as expected, and even more. I wasn’t expecting shifter lights to work, but they do !
    Perfectly paired with my SC2Pro
    Couldn’t be happy more

    What a device, I finally jumped ship from the Fanatec Eco System but really love the McLaren rim and wanted to take that to my Simucube. This little beauty worked perfectly allowing me to convert my rim to USB. Easy to install literally like 5 minutes job done and amazingly quick shipping.

    Highly Recommended!!

    Todo perfecto, pedido el 24 de julio y ha llegado el 26 de julio, todo perfecto y de gran calidad.

    Funciona todo hasta la mordida de embrague, el aro convertido es un fórmula V2 con levas avanzadas, facilísimo de convertir y muy rápido, no hay que hacer nada, convertir enchufar y jugar.

    Muchas gracias Simon 😊

    Absolutely fantastic service and product.

    My order was shipped out promptly, and was received two days later, halfway around the world.

    This kit was used to convert a Fanatec F1 Special Edition wheel rim to work on a SimuCube 2 pro. The conversion only took a few minutes, is completely reversible and the directions are easy to follow. All features work flawlessly, including the clutch bite point for launch at the start of the race.

    Construction and finish of the conversion kit is high quality and rock solid. All fasteners and hardware we’re provided in a delightful velvet bag.

    The only way this product could be any better, was if they figured out a solution to make it fully wireless.

    Great work, I would happily purchase another, or other hardware kits in the future.

    I’d bought a Fanatec McLaren GT3 V2 wheel, the intention being to buy a DD1 wheelbase. I should’ve known that I’d change my mind and sure enough I then decided to order a Simucube 2 Pro!

    I emailed SRM for advice and I was promptly given the advice to buy this kit. I ordered it early afternoon on June 22nd and received it at 10.30am the next day! Amazing.

    As for the kit itself, all I can say is it’s of a very high quality and works perfectly. As for fitting, trust me if I can do it you can too. I’m the type you could send to B&Q for a glass hammer. You get the idea.

    Anyhow – this is my first time using SRM and for sure it will not be the last. Excellent products and service. Thank you!

    I ordered this kit on May 4 and it arrived in Turkey on May 5, incredibly fast shipping thank you. As for the product, installation is incredibly simple, all you have to do is unscrew the 4 screws of the Fanatecc QR on the back of your product and after removing the QR, insert the chip into the corresponding threads, attach the SRM QR to the back of your Fanatec steering wheel with 4 screws. After connecting the USB cable, your wheel is ready for use! Thanks for the amazing product! here you can check the product in my profile

    I highly recommend this for converting your fanatec wheel to be usable as a standalone usb wheeld. I have this on a v2 clubsport hub and it works perfect(check the list of compatible wheels) with my simucube. The only reason im not calling this the perfect solution is because there is no support for the endurance button module. What i love most about this is that you dont have to open anything up, its basically a swap of the quick release to a spacer and your own quick release. I would love one of these for some of the newer simagic wheels.

    Been running a CSW 2.5 for a few years. Upgraded to a Simucube Pro, and ran out of money before I could choose a wheel. So I purchased this kit, and have re used my Fanatec McLaren GT3 wheel. Yes it was easy. Yes the kit was complete.
    And everything works as I need it to.
    Very happy customer.
    PS, it arrived quickly too. Even to Australia!

    I would like to give a short feedback on the new Plug and Play Kit. Well, the kit fits perfectly on my Fanatec Formula V2 and with the QR I bought from you also great on the SC2. The first loosening of the original QR1 on the Fanatec wheel took a bit of force, but I managed to get it off with a spatula that you use for opening mobile phone/tablet cases. I didn’t screw the PCB in place, I think it sits very well without screws and is also held in place by the USB cable with the tightened strain relief. Only the USB spiral cable could be a little longer to wrap it around the axle. I’ve been using the kit for two days now with Fanaled, the Leds and Buttons work perfectly and everything still sits perfectly.
    Many thanks for the fast handling and shipping.

    Many greetings and a Merry Christmas to you

    I was converting my current Fanatec Mclaren GT V2 wheel to be used with my new VRS wheelbase and this kit could not be easier. All you have to do is simply remove the QR lite, plug in the new PCB to the existing pins and screw on the new spacer. The spacer is high quality and looks great also. The PCB is made well and so far everything is working as promised, would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to convert their Fanatec wheel to other ecosystems.
