Sim Racing Garage – Ascher Racing Button Plate Review

Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage reviews the Ascher Racing Button Plate.

As usual Barry takes us on a tour checking out the product in detail and takes a look inside the housing. In the second part of the video Barry explains how to prepare and mount the wheel plate to an aftermarket wheel, making use of the supplied templates.

The Ascher Racing Button Plate is a high-quality professional grade button plate that incorporates a set of high-quality buttons, encoders, and paddle shifter system. Martin Ascher provides you with a choice of different paddle styles for his shifters such as the Formula, Formula Short, GT, GT1, GT3, and GT asymmetric versions.

The Ascher Racing C20S  Button plate retails between 509.00 € and 579.00 € depending on your choice of paddles, and quick release.
