R-Racing RS5 Wheel Review By The SRG

R-Racing RS5 Wheel Review By The SRG

Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage reviews the RS5 Custom GT and Open wheel car wheel rim by R-Racing.

The RS5 wheel is a 305mm diameter GT/Prototype wheel rim build up around a 4mm carbon fiber wheel plate, which is equipped with 10 APEM push buttons and 2 CTS rotary encoders.

On the electronics side of things, the RS5 wheel uses a custom circuit board combined with the well-known Leo Bodnar USB conversion board.

On the back of the wheel we find a set of magnetic shifter switches, operated by 4mm thick carbon fiber paddles. The back of the rim, and the used electronics, are covered by a 3D printed housing.

The grips of the wheel rim are wrapped using an Alcantara-like material, but can also be ordered featuring a suede leather finish.

The R-Racing RS5 wheel rim can be ordered via the official R-Racing website for $519.99 + Shipping.
