SimracingBay Simucube OSW Kit! Recommended!


Hi,
We received at EKSIMRacing  the Simucube OSW Kit from SimRacingBay yesterday and today we’re already on track! 🙂
The feeling is absolutely fantastic and the more I improve the ffb parameters the more the feeling is accurate and detailed.
Our display devices and emulators manager SLIMax Manager Pro works really well with Fanatec Teensy mod and it is great to be able to use the Fanatec rim “as is” with the QR adapter provided in option with the OSW Kit.
SLIMax Manager Pro takes care of LED, 3xDigits panel and CSP Motors of Fanatec hardware as well as all display devices (USB display devices from SIM Display, SRW-S1, SLI-PRO, …) and emulators (VDASH-EMU) connected.
I strongly recommend the OSW Kit from SimRacingBay to all guys who want to enjoy quickly their sim-rig with a PRO Direct Drive solution.
REMINDER: using the Fanatec hardware with SLIMax Manager Pro is 100% free!
