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!

Quick maintenance update today of SLIMax Manager Pro v3.4.6.1u (2017-04-09 )

This update is recommended (important bug fixed and improvements)

bug fixed introduced in previous version which can alter the accuracy of extra telemetry data (weather, air, temp, pressure, etc.)
optimization of the settings management of the EMU (should load faster than previous version on low end PC)
– already ready for DiRT 4 and Project CARS 2 but now this version prepares the ground for F1 2017, can’t say more for now…


OSW Ready: accept ANY OSW Fanatec mod as soon as you install the latest Fanatec Driver (see Fanatec website for more info).


– the Fanatec P1 rim in FLAG MODE (using the BIG RIM LED for yellow/blue flag and Low fuel warning, etc.) is now perfectly usable with the latest v281 beta driver on CSW Base v2/v2.5 and latest CSL driver (see the Fanatec website for more info). A new settings is available in GENERAL OPTIONS.

REMINDER1: using the Fanatec hardware with SLIMax Manager Pro is 100% free!
