Pro-Sim PSL Sequential Shifter Review by The Simpit
Back in December 2016 we introduced you the Pro-Sim PSL Sequential Shifter by Pro-Sim developed in partnership with R.T. Quaife Engineering, Ltd which is a British manufacturer of automotive drive-train products for both road-going and racing cars.
Now Shaun Cole of The Simpit takes an in-depth look at the PSL (Pro-Sim Lite) Sequential Shifter. Shaun reviews the design and functionality and performs a hands-on test breaking down how the product performs on track.
The PSL Sequential Shifter mechanism is CNC machined and case hardened for prolonged life. It features the same principle as the Pro-Sim V1 top of the range shifter. The high-quality mechanics are housed between two powder coated plates that can be mounted to any flat surface via 4 M6 bolts. To enhance the reliability and counter mechanical wear the gears triggered via magnetic switches.
Optionally you can upgrade the standard fitted PSL nylon shift knob to a higher quality aluminum version. You can also choose to upgrade the shaft for up to 150mm extra length with 80mm of adjustment.
The shifter will be supplied as a stand-alone USB game controller device and will be compatible with all major racing games on PC. It may also be possible to connect the Pro-Sim Lite Shifter to a USB keyboard emulator for use on PlayStation.
The Pro-Sim PSL Sequential Shifter is on sale for £329.17 (€383.78 – $427.85) ex VAT. The aluminum knob option will add another £10.00 (€11.96 – $12.84) while a shaft extension will cost you £50.00 (€59.82 – $62.43).
