SRM Wheel Emulator for Fanatec wheel base

My Emulator makes the Fanatec wheel base think that a Fanatec wheel rim is attached.

I have only tested the Emulator product with PC as I do not support console.  I have no idea if it will work with console but I would assume not, so I only sell the product as compatible with PC

If the Fanatec wheel base does not see a Fanatec wheel attached Force Feedback is not enabled.

  • Emulator in custom Aluminum case which is Black Anodized.
  • Mounting plate for the QR
  • SRM male pin plug for Fanatec wheels
  • 6 x M5 16mm Countersunk bolts in black

This product comes as just the Emulator with male pins to connect to the Fanatec wheel base.  You must use a Fanatec Quick Release with the emulator otherwise you cannot attach it to the wheel base.

  • Requires a Fanatec CSL QR1 (Plastic), CSW QR1 (Metal) or the new QR2 Quick release
  • Fanatec sell the CSW QR1 and QR2 on their website, or we hold some stock here.
  • Fitting the Quick release is very easy and just requires attaching 4 bolts

This product works with. these Fanatec wheel bases…

  • Podium DD1 and DD2
  • CSW all versions 1, 2 and 2.5
  • CSL Elite Xbox and PS4 versions
  • Older CSL
  • CSL DD
  • CSL DD Pro
  • CS DD
  • CS DD+
  • If using the QR2 you will need the QR2 wheelbase part from Fanatec as well.

This is for PC use only – We do not expect it to work on an XBOX or PS4

V5 and V5b PCB has new button headers that allow up to 8 buttons, 2 shifters, a hat switch and the setup button on the wheel.  The 9th button can only be used as a Setup button for the DD1 / DD2 display.

Connection Details

  • Can use up to 3 Fanatec button pods from the Universal Hub
  • Left and Right Shifter
  • 5V

Using the emulator for anything other than Force Feedback is not supported by me and is offered so that you can create your own DIY solution.  I sell a few items to help with this, but you need to create your own solution.

    Works like a charm. Use it to drive a GSI X29 on my DD2 and it just works. Manufacturing quality is top notch too. Couldn’t be happier with it.

    Tutto ok solo dovuto stringere le tre viti interne perché dopo pochi minuti di gioco si è allentato totalmente quindi dopo aver capito quale era il problema ho serrato le viti e ora sembra ok. Avevo anche il podium hub ma su la ruota cube control non mi piaceva soprattutto a livello estetico quindi questo è più bello. Spero solo che il software e la rigidità ( visto che non è un unico blocco) siano ottimi. Spedizione veloce e packaging buono.

    Great communication with Simon. Fast delivery 4 days to USA east coast. It could’ve been 3 days but we had a snowstorm so there was a one day delay which is nothing. The emulator is fantastic. Sturdier than a rock. Looks high quality finished. In case anyone wondering I bought the emulator to attach after market wheels like classic wheels old F1 wheels and so on to my Fanatec CSL DD base. I love my purchase. Thanks Simon. I highly recommend SRM emulator.

    Purchased this to mount a Leoxz XF-1 Pro wheel to the Fanatec DD1.

    Quality is excellent, shipping arrived quickly and Simon was incredibly helpful in responding to any troubleshooting questions I had around the installation!

    The quality of the device is amazing. I cannot have a single complaint. Extremely impressed with the packaging and service provided as extremely helpful when I had questions.

    I debated whether to get the podium hub or this, I went for this because it is shorter and I like the quality craftsmanship. Plus it’s UK based so easy shipping!

    It’s packed with all the screws you need and you can feel the thought and effort that has gone in to developing it.

    Thank you for building such a great product

    Mind blowing honestly those guy are real pro from the packaging to the emulator material they also give extra black screw for your wheel on a little red pocket this unboxing feeling like open a jewel case and it’s working maybe the only thing i would like is to have a cover if i don’t use button on my wheel as a sim drifter don’t realy need button so it would be great to cover this electronic card on the center of my wheel but everything else is 11/10

    Good quality, solid, light and working flawlessly.
    I bought this hub for my drift wheel and I’m super happy with it! The shipping was very fast too.
    I reccomend this hub if you looking for a hub for your DIY wheel or just a simple hub for a drift /rally wheel.

    They shipped it within hours of completed payment. First thing I have to say is the build quality. This thing is well made and holds up to all the punishment I put it through, as I rally and time attack regularly. It was literally plug and play no fuss, just put on your wheel selected for use and have fun with confidence. There is no bending nor any flex on the product as well when turning or under load.

    Simon was very nice and helpful to any questions or concerns I may have. 100% satisfied and thank you from a continuing buyer of your products.

    I picked the emulator up for my Cube controls wheel to connect to my Podium DD.

    The emulator is made to a very high quality and works flawlessly and much less bulky than the Podium hub.

    Stunning piece of work and Simon’s customer service is second to none. Fantastic support and comms with questions.

    I will leave 5 stars for the product,
    the build quality is exceptional top quality looking hardware,
    installation is very fast and very easy to do within a couple of minutes,

    I love the little touches of the serial numbers on the box and the emulator very detailed,

    just 1 thing which lets it down for me personally,
    I purchased the emulator for a PSE GT3 wheel I am waiting for been made its not arrived yet but wanted to test the product,

    I placed a 350mm Momo wheel there on the emulator,
    fits very nice no issues with the wheel,

    but there is the hole inside where you can see the exposed circuit board and pins there,
    also this is fine looks really nice I like that kind of look,

    issue come taking the hub off I was not paying full attention place my thumb inside the hole slightly and pressed the pins it killed all power to my DD2,
    unsure if it gave me a shock or was the sharp pins pressing into my thumb luckily my base is ok and my fault not looking,
    I do have a 3 year old who likes to hang around while I am driving and sometimes presses the buttons etc,

    1 thing I would recommend is that the inside be routed out another 1mm lip and a center cap placing inside engraved with SRM and maybe coloured also like the logo,

    this would give better safety using certain wheels + look stylish apart from this I am still very happy with the product but I found its downside after 5 minutes.

    This Fanatec wheel emulator is an amazing piece of kit. Allowing the user to fit virtually any wheel to a Fanatec wheel base and have the force feedback work as an original Fanatec rim is quite amazing, uncapping the restrictions placed by Fanatec on their products.

    I have just upgraded my wheelbase firmware to the latest beta version 372 on my CSW v2.5 and the emulator still works flawlessly each time I connect my custom rim with the emulator to the wheelbase. The force feedback is just as strong with this emulator attached so there is no loss of fidelity. A definite win in my book, and so much cheaper than a Universal HUB.
