SRW-S1 to G27 Adapter

Description
The SimAbility SRW-S1 to G27 Adapter is designed to be an affordable solution for semi-permanently mounting an SRW-S1 wheel to a G27 base making it a great solution for those who need hand controls on the wheel, or for F1 fanatics who just want an affordable F1 style wheel. Simply remove the G27 wheel and paddle shifter housing and replace those with the SimAbility adapter and SRW-S1 wheel. This makes it possible to restore the G27 to original condition latter. No modification is required on the SRW-S1 either except to replace the stock screws with the provided 2.2mm x 25mm stainless screws to attach the backplate.

Yes, you do lose the G27 paddles, buttons, and shift lights. But, you gain the SRW-S1 shift paddles, analog paddles, and 19+ new buttons! The SRW-S1 shift lights work on most sims, but usually require an additional utility such as Fanleds.

Note: The SimAbility adapter is with not a quick-change adapter. It's designed to be affordable. If you want to switch between the G27 and SRW-S1 wheels, and have a decent budget, then you might prefer the Simulaje Quick Release by Juan Zapata

Warning for G29 Users: Not recommended, unless you are willing, and able, to reconnect the G29 wheel electronics externally. While the SimAbility SRW-S1 to G27 Adapter does physically mount to a G29, the G29 will no longer function with the stock wheel unplugged.

G25 Users: I have mixed information about compatibility on G25 and it may be that the steering shaft is different on some G25 wheels. Email me if you are interested and we can compare measurements of your G25 to a G27.

  • My Original DIY Project - This is the first video I've done related to SRW-S1 and the G27. I explain a little about the SRW-S1 wheel and show you one way to build your own adapter. (Hint, the "pucks" can be made out of hardwood and I sell the backplate separately.)

What You Get

  • HPDE (High-density polyethylene) adapter puck that mounts securely to the stock G25/G27 base shaft. No modifications are necessary to the shaft.
  • Brushed aluminum adapter can with pre-cut holes for wire ties to hold the SRW-S1 cable.
  • Black textured backplate that nicely blends with the SRW-S1 wheel. The place is CNC cut from 1/4” inch (6.35mm) HPDE (High-density polyethylene) which is a durable plastic used in marine applications. I also sell backplates separately if you prefer to build your own adapter.
  • All mounting screws including the difficult to find 2.2mm x 25mm stainless self-taping screws to mount the SRW-S1 to the backplate.
  • I also include the two hex wrenches that will be necessary to remove the G25/G27 wheel and mount the adapter.
  • Instructions
  • Does not include the G25/G27 base or the SRW-S1 wheel

A Little About the SimRaceway SRW-S1
If you don't already own a SimRaceway SRW-S1, then you should order that first and make sure you like it before ordering a SimAbility adapter. While it's a great wheel for the price, there are some drawbacks and common complaints.

  • The wheel is no longer in production. While it is still readily available, there is a chance it won't be if it fails
  • The wheel is smaller than it looks. (Aprox. 8 1/2" 215mm in diameter)
  • Some customers don't like the feel of the plastic paddles.
  • With all that said. I've owned a single SRW-S1 for at least 5 years and it's still working.


What To Do About The SRW-S1 USB Cable?
If your handy with wiring, it's also possible to run the SRW-S1 USB cable through the G27. However, most customers just run the cable externally being sure to leave enough slack in the cable that is can wrap around the G25/27 shaft when it rotates during initial calibration.
