Hi gang,

I've added a new box to my line of great button boxes. This one was inspired by a sim racer in Europe who asked me to add a large, round pushbutton to his GT1X box. I was fortunate to have found a great push button with internal LED to do the job:



The large button is appx 30mm in diameter, and its bezel is about 38mm. The colors I have are blue, red, green, yellow and white, and I even can make custom inserts. If you wan a red one which says, "PIT SPEED"...no problem! I can do it if it fits They are all lighted with an internal LED.

If you order one this week, you'll be in the active round of boxes, and I will be shipping these on the 17th-19th, but I have to have the order in and paid by this Sunday. Shipping to the US is 10.95 and international shipping is 16.95. This box, like all of my boxes are totally easy to set up. Just plug into a USB and go race. The price is 89.75 and this is even more incredible in person...too bad I have to ship this one, because I would keep it for myself!

Cheers,

Derek

Any update on the Seq shifter Derek? Love the look of the one your making. I've been looking for a really heavy and robust shifter. All the ones I've ever tried are too easy to move, so sometimes the lightest flick will make it shift. To me me, that's really annoying. Hope you can specify what kind of top you would want, as my personal choice would be a metal shaft of sorts;

Example:


I also love your Track Boss button box. Would there be any chance of putting a rotary switch on instead of the five toggle switches? In the likes of Evo and rFactor, I can't see where they would be more useful than the standard button. The two covered ones are cool, and could be kept for the "Starter" and "Ignition"

I would only need the one rotary switch, just for brake bias adjustment.

Thanks for all the hard work you do, hope to hear more soon.

Hi PhoenixWylde

Thanks for your enthusiasm. For the prices I will charge for the Seq shifter (I have everything and just need to have it drilled and assemble them), this is the knob I will install:



As far as the Track Boss goes, I will not offer special additions. I have several new designs on the horizon regarding that box, but the designs I offer are what I have.

Well, when you make a box with at least one rotary switch that can be mapped for brake bias adjustment both ways in games, give me a buzz, as adjusting brake bias is something I like to do. Especially in my longer GT races.

Also, how wide will that Shifter unit be? The side that actually faces away from the desk.

Go to my website and see the box on the very bottom of the page. That one is called my iformula, and I build it with two, two way, rotating mechanical encoders. That box, like all of my boxes, is perfectly plug and play, and requires no external software to regulate the pulse timing like for all of the other solutions. It's 109.75 plus 16.95 international shipping. That box is the only other one in the same family as my Track Boss, and I face it with 3m Dinoc like its sibling. I can add 4 more buttons to it as well.

So there you have it. Solution provided. Please send me a PM with your email so I can send you a paypal to get you in this next round of boxes. I will be shipping that one on the 3rd of June.

The shifter is 3 x 2":



Here's a custom box I did for iRacer, Frank Herefjord:



He has spent hundreds of hours and many times that in money on his JPS replica:



I am exceedingly serious about my components.

Default Introducing the SLI Box and the G Box

Hi gang,

I just got in my hands some new goodies I've been designing. These are red hot and ready to roll. They're CNC machined from HDPE and faced with 1.3mm mirror polished carbon fiber (the real stuff), and the photos don't even do them credit. If you own some of the great hardware from Leo or Christiano, these boxes are the way to protect your investment in them.

The specs are as follows:

SLI-Box - 137mm x 87mm x 31mm
G-Box - 90mm x 64mm x 31mm







The SLI Box is $59.75 plus shipping (16.95 intl, 4.95 US), and the G-Box is 54.75 plus shipping. They do not include any mounting hardware and are not predrilled (I won't predrill them). I'm already getting orders on these, so they seem to be popular. I'm proud of them and know you will be too.

Best regards,

derek

EDIT - Update - the G-Boxes already sold out. I'll get more soon, but I think I'll need to take names to ensure you get one. Thanks to all who ordered!

Here are two initial sequential shifter prototypes as a proof of concept. I am redesigning them, and will bring them to market for 99.75 US.

Ohhhh, love the shifters. The taller one is a perfect shape, just what I would want for a Sequential Shifter.

Hope to see the finished product soon.

Thank you for all the hard work your doing.

I'm happy to do it and I've already redesigned my sequential shifter for the 4th (and likely final) time. This newest one will have the "notchy" feel and should be a very heavy pull to it. The knob on the right is the one everyone (including I) prefer. I have a great time doing these components, and I'm glad so many all over the world like them

It's a one of a kind box - there will be no others such as this one.

I recently completed install of the components I ordered from Derek Speare Designs, and I am very pleased with the quality and performance. I purchased:

Track Boss button box
G25 / G27 Wheel Adapter
Pocket Plate for Sparco P310mm Wheel and SLI-Pro

Derek, I would say that your dimensions for the wheel pocket plate are spot-on. Button spacing, SLI-Pro match-up, pocket depth wiring clearance, and back cover dimensioning are faultless.



To accomodate the two SLI-Pro rotary encoders I drilled two shaft holes equidistant from the two closest button holes and the raised wheel hub platform outline on the inside of the pocket. The spacing was correct to fit the encoder body inside the pocket with clearance for the other buttons and the raised wheel hub platform outline. Once installed, I used a dremel tool to trim the encoder shaft lengths.





The HDPE material qualities of the pocket plate make it very easy to work with. Drilling, trimming, and modifications are easily accomplished with standard tools, the material seems durable, and the plastic has natural noise damping qualities. Plus, the HDPE naturally holds the button mounting nuts in place, acting as a natural lock washer.

The SLI-Pro is a fabulous tool! The rotary encoders are a must-have feature. The right knob switches the right alphanumeric display between RPM, Elapsed Lap Time, Previous Lap Time, Best Lap Time, Running Interval vs Best Lap, among others. The left knob selects Speed, Oil Temp, Water Temp, Lap, Position, Individual Tire Temps, and others. In short, it displays all of the data otherwise featured in the HUD / MoTec.






Great Stuff, Derek

Hi Gang,

Here's a quickie video of my soon to release sequential shifter:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeXzofacWCQ

I'm going to be offering it next month. I have a large batch of WCS and button boxes I have to send out and my focus is there. When those are on their way, then I will begin taking orders for the shifter. It's going to be 119.75 plus shipping, is BULLET PROOF, is USB plug and go and has a case which will impress you in its own right. I have the high tech "shop rag" case on it now, but that's an option I probably won't offer

Thanks for the box Derek. Just got it today, and have already used it a lot in rFactor. Thanks man. Even though I don't have the stuff to hard mount the thing, Blu-Tac solves everything.

Hi Ethan,

I'm pleased you received your box and all is in order The Ram Mounts are great, but, of course, it's not something someone just "keeps around the house"

Cheers,

Hi gang,

I like to keep as busy as I can to deliver the best sim racing goodies I can. This box here is a simple one, but one which offers a ton of function in a compact space. It has 4-two way mechanical encoders (no software to manage, and they operate just like a toggle) and 4 pushbuttons. What you see in the photo is how the box is built.

It's perfectly plug in and race, and it functions as seamlessly in iRacing (and other sims) just like all of my boxes do. It's 79.75 plus shipping. It measures about 5.5" x 2.5" x 1.5" (or so). Orders for this box as well as any box orders in this group will ship on August 24th.

Note that you can use the encoders as you want. One of my customers uses his as his "Comms Box" and uses the knobs for volume and the buttons for mute - he runs TS, Vent and iRacing Chat all at the same time. You can set yours however you want, and if you can assign a value insim, you can assign it to the box.



Just hit up my site to order one and I will get it to you in a flash

flame19123, I trust that you will like the GT1-FVS.

Derek, I swapped out the Track Boss for the GT1-FVS Button Box. For my racing uses, the GT1-FVS has plenty of buttons when combined with the steering wheel buttons, with room still left over to grow:



I think I'll use the Track Boss for advanced flight sims (DCS WartHog, etc) and their multitude of functions and checklist procedures.

Cheers!

I just got it today! lol my first impression right out of the package was it looked awesome. I love the safety toggle and all the buttons. I plugged it in and the light on the big button is pretty cool. Nice feature for night racing. One thing though dee is, not a bad thing at all!, i figured like the safety toggle would stay up when you flipped the switch. Im trying it out now

Hi - I'm happy you have your box! Sorry for the time to post here. The toggles don't stay on/off as some sims don't like switches that are activated and locked in place...causes some confusion and mapping problems. There's no easy - and cost effective - solution. Thanks for posting your thoughts and I wish you many successful races!

Hi gang,

I've been working on this for some time. These are renders of what I have sitting on my bench in my shop. I'll put up photos of the actual prototypes either tomorrow or Wednesday when the great pins I have inbound arrive. The QR adapter is made from Acetal, and I make bases for the G25/27, T500 and ECCI wheels. You will install the base (the male part) to your wheel and then mount your wheel rim to the flange (female)...connecting them should be obvious. A t-handled QR pin goes through the center hole to hold them in place once the rim is on the base.

I still need to sort out pricing, but will say that I am hoping to release them at 84.75 for one base and two rim flanges, with the QR pin and screw pack. It may be 94.75, though, so be prepared. The cost is due to the very expensive - and indestructible - material. Acetal is the best material you can use for this application. I may consider offering the base and one rim flange for openers and then letting everyone come back later and get the second, third, etc. We'll see.

Anyhow, enjoy the renders and thanks for looking!

Specifications:

Total thickness when mounted and secured with QR pin: 1.25" (31.75 mm)

G25/27 base diameter: 80mm

T500 base diameter: 80mm

ECCI base diameter: ~101mm

Rim flanges will allow you to mount any 70mm, 74mm or 50.8mm wheel, and I have a flange for the Grant 5 bolt as well.

You did? I am sure I shipped them unless you ordered an adapter with them, then the order will ship either the end of the week or on Monday. You should have said it was you when you ordered!!!

Here's a photo of the very roughed out prototypes:



These are PROTOTYPES and made from low cost materials. I'm still waiting on the QR pins to come in today or tomorrow, but I didn't see any reason to delay things while I'm waiting on parts like that.
