Bit rough but a working prototype I designed myself, got the idea from amstudio, his designs are behind a patreon paywall.
Anyone tried the new FANALAB Software, it's pretty cool but the v345 driver it needs wouldn't allow mapping of the sequential shifter to paddles, reloaded older drivers and and it's working again.

Reworked the design a little, magnets sit flush now. Upgraded to custom printer firmware and set the pieces to print with the magnet holes up-right. If anyone wants I can send out a printed set (free), magnets are from office works about 5 bucks. Pretty sure they're compatible with most fanatec shifter switches, I've been using them on the F1 wheel and this set is going on the gt wheel.

What are the magnets for?

Attached to the paddle shifters it gives a more tactile clicky feel instead of just a spongy spring, like these but designed myself

New rig, early Xmas present. Next level racing GTTrack. Huge upgrade from the office chair, very solid with a small amount of flex from the recliner back rest (to be expected). Still need to mount the lcd dash and button box. Might be a bit sloppy while I get used to full wheel strength and increased brake force settings, after that though you'll be looking at my rear bumper...lol jk.
Also I've been using only the f1 wheel since I got it and haven't felt the need to use the gt wheel, I think Guybrush was wondering about that.
