    Received my shifters yesterday and was blown away by the quality. Packing, design, fitment, and use are second to none. The support from SRM is amazing and cant recommend their products high enough

    The shifters are very well built. The assembly is not easy but with the good instruction its probably possible to do for everyone. The distance from the rim to the shifterplate is a bit more far than with the originals. But i have get used to it. I would recommend the 5mm magnets, the 3mm are not really strong and feel to less of resistance.

    Very good product!!
    Totally recommend!!

    Greetings from Finland. I was quite happy with my new Mclaren GT3 wheel from Fanatec. The only thing i didnt like was the clumsy and noisy magnetic rocker shifters. After little research i found these carbon paddle shifters. After reseiving and installation i have to say that the feel and the quality on these are superb! OC you have to put a little work to put them to the wheel but with the great instructions that came with the shifters it was no hard prosedure whatsoever. Highly recommend these if you want a little upgrade for already great wheel. Thanks Simon and SMR!

    The gear shifter upgrade for Fanatec McLaren wheel is absolutely the salvation for the very unhappy owners that had been neglected by Fanatec. The McLaren is an amazing wheel but with a problematic gear shifter that Fanatec decided not to came with a solution but SRM had the solution, the upgrade gear shifter is perfect. Fanatec should hire this company to resolve the unsolved problem with the McLaren wheel. Thank you SIM RACING MACHINES!

    Like all owners of Mclaren wheel, I ended up having a problem with the paddles. I had already returned 5 times the steering wheel to the support and still the same problem after a while. so I took it apart to see how the paddles worked and I was surprised and very disappointed. just metal caps attached with adhesive tape on the pcb to make contact … the metal can only weaken and finally break … german engineering …
    I did not want to spend an additional € 500 on a new steering wheel and I found the Gear shifter upgrade for McLaren Wheel! :).
    it’s worth its money! everything is carbon fiber, the manufacturing quality is perfect and the feeling is excellent. it is not comparable with the original paddles.
    assembly is relatively easy, but you still need a minimum of tools. it’s still basic to mount.
    the paddles were shipped the same day of the order, it’s very fast (it was available in stock)!
    Thank you Simon for having designed this product, great work!

    As with many other users, I experienced missed and double shifts with the standard shifters on my McLaren GT3 rim.

    Simon very kindly gave uo a lot of his personal time in order to talk me through the available options and also the fitting procedure for the upgraded units which was very reassuring.

    The quality and workmanship of the shifters is outstanding and fitting them was straightforward after carefully following the step by step instructions.

    I have been using these shifters for a good few months now and can honestly say I have never once experienced a problem with them. They are visually pleasing to the eye and even more importantly have a fantastic tactile feel in use.

    Thank you very much Simon.

    I also had the very common and well known issue with missing shift and double shifts. I live in Bangkok and fanatec offered to repair it for me but not pay the shipping so I chose not to and bought this kit.
    The installation was great, I have zero experience with electronics and I opened it up and cut of the parts necessary in 40min. I then took it to the local tv repair shop as I don’t own solder equipment, it took him about 90 sec to solder. Then it was about 15 min to put back together.

    It works great and the feel is snappy and smooth and I love it. I would definitely recommend it to anybody else.

    Been using the Mclaren wheel for a few months, and like most of my wheels wanted to upgrade to the SRM magnetic shifters, so took the plunge and went ahead and installed them myself, it’s alittle bit fiddly but take your time and along with the excellent instruction supplied all went very well, and as usual the replacement shifters are of a very high standard..

    I owned my new GT3 wheel for just over a week when the shifter rocker switch began to fail and cause miss-shifts. After some research I found this is a common issue and major flaw with the design of this wheel, so I decided to send my wheel to Simon to upgrade to his magnetic shifters, which also fixes the problem with the original Fanatec shifter mechanism.

    The quality and feel of the SRM shifters is excellent, as is the quality of Simon’s work. They look like they were part of the original wheel, with no marks or evidence of the upgrade having been done.

    Hopefully this upgrade will ensure the longevity of what is otherwise a really nice GT wheel to use.
