Creosim MPS-15 Paddle Shifter Upgrade for Fanatec Rims
Shaun Cole of The Simpit reviews the Creosim MPS-15 Paddle Shifter update for the Fanatec Formula Wheel Rims and Universal Hub.
While the common Fanatec paddle shifters perform more than adequate, some demanding sim racers might be looking for something with a more realistic feel to it. This is where the Creosim MPS-15 paddle shifters update for Fanatec rims might be a solution. Instead of using a more common spring/button design, the MPS-15 set relies on magnetic snap action switches resulting in a more accurate shift behavior and tactile feedback.
During the review, Shaun outlines the product details and explains the installation process. Finally, Shaun performs a hands-on test and analyzes talks about the difference between the MPS-15 set and the stock shifters.
CreoSim Paddle Shifters-package comes with paddle shifters for F1-style steering wheels and extended GT-style paddles for larger wheels. CreoSim Paddle Shifters are compatible with Fanatec ClubSport F1-Wheel Rim, Fanatec Universal Hub and custom made steering wheels.
CreoSim Paddle Shifters has adjustable magnet snap action feature with a great and responsive tactile feedback. You’ll never miss a gearshift again.
Most paddle shifters, including the original Fanatec shifters, are using a spring to hold the paddle in place. You need to gradually overcome the spring tension to activate a switch for a gear change to take place. The problem with this solution is that sometimes you are accidentally ghost shifting.
Ghost shifting is when you pull the paddle for a gear change, but you accidentally only pull the paddle half way of its throw and the switch is not activated. You have just missed a gear and valuable time, or worse, a position and maybe the race.
With a magnet, there’s no gradual tension. The paddle makes a sudden snap when pulled and it’s unavoidable to activate the switch. Plus, it gives a great tactile feedback to the driver that indicates a gear change has occurred. The magnet can be repositioned to adjust the resistance for the snap action.
