We begin with Max Papis F13 steering wheel and have it customized at the factory for racing simulators. This full-size wheel has been designed to minimize rotational mass to achieve increased detail from the force-feedback effects. Your servo motor will become more effective because there is less rotating mass to dampen the sensation. The result is a crisper sensation which improves your driving experience. We then outfit the wheel with plenty of buttons, switches, knobs and paddle shifters to make this wheel usable with all other cars on your simulator.
The Max Papis Innovations manufactured wheel is modified exclusively for Ricmotech. The wheel has been created to be lighter than the original to reduce the rotating mass, the horn button cutout has been eliminated and the grip has been covered with an Alcantara material which holds up better than suede and is easier to keep clean. The wheel features Alcantara wrap, oval molded grip and is mated to proprietary aluminum magnetic paddle shifters. The shifters have adjustable horizontal positioning in addition to adjustable travel distance. The magnetic action imparts a positive shifting awareness which resonates through the wheel with an undeniable tactile sensation.
The buttons, switches and knobs on the wheel have a total of 18 functions that are mappable in game. The embedded controller was created to be ultra responsive for all the button functions and paddle shifts. The encoders have a unique dual-control function which contributes to high functionality in a smaller footprint giving the equivalent of 4 encodes. Turning the knob left to right handles one set of functions while pushing and turning controls an additional function. The coiled cable is detachable so it can be easily replaced in case of damage.
Wheel can be fitted with an optional quick release available separately.
