I am Simon Maltby from Sim Racing Machines. hopefully many of you know me and that I try and improve things for sim racers.
When trying the Leoxz XF1 wheel on my SC2 I realised that although it has bluetooth there is no battery so the only way to run it is via a USB cable.
Now, Moza and Simagic both have the 5v coming through the QR. They do this by using a wireless power passthrough, a bit like wireless phone charging, I was thinking that it would be good to have something similar on the SC2… both for wheels like the Leoxz and to get away from batteries in SC2 wireless wheels.
What I would like to know is how popular something like this would be?
I have done a proof of concept just using a cheap kit from Ebay and it works well.
To do it properly though I would need to fine tune the physical and electronics as well as thinking about how to connect the wheel through the QR or alternative.
Ideally this is something Granite might look at, but i’m quite happy to design a system to do this and bolt onto the wheelbase (both SC1 and SC2)
So, as I say could I have some feedback - Is this a good idea?
