Pro-Sim PSL Sequential Shifter V2 Review by Sim Racing Garage
Back in December 2016, Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage reviewed the PSL Sequential Shifter by Pro-Sim. Now the British hardware developer updated the PSL with noise reduction components, resulting in a new evolution of the product.
Now Barry reviews the updated PSL Sequential Shifter V2 and compares it to its predecessor.
PSL stands for Pro-Sim Lite and aims to bring us the high-quality mechanics of the V1 Shifter at a more affordable price. 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 Pro-Sim Lite simulator sequential gear shifter V2 has been developed in conjunction with Quaife Engineering. The internals are based on an original real Quaife gearbox design that gives the same in gear ‘thump’ feeling from a real car. The completely solid and robust design weighs a reassuring 2.8kg as it is made from hardened steel providing outstanding durability.
The PSL Sequential Shifter V2 is still CNC machined and heat treated and is still using the excellent Leo Bodnar board with magnetic switches to sense the gear shifts for the ultimate reliability. 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.
This is a USB device that is compatible with nearly any racing game including iRacing, rFactor, Assetto Corsa, Project CARS, DiRT Rally and many many more on PC and can be used on PS4 with the use of a keyboard USB emulator PCB (not supplied).
The Pro-Sim PSL Sequential Shifter is available for £332.00 excl. VAT. The optional aluminum knob will add another £8.00.
