    I
    If they don’t I’ll probably sort out a button box with a dpad.

    Decided to cancel my pledge; I get it's direct drive but it's still too big a risk for me...and I've just got a fanatec handbrake and shifter to go with my other gear anyway :p

    I think a few people have cancelled, surprised the total hasn't really moved for a couple of weeks though.

    its quite a bit of money to gamble with and with trusty well made products of similar if not better standards about . why would you gamble with a newish company on a newish wheel ?

    Yeah, I agree to an extent - there's no direct drive wheel at this price point however.

    If I was worried about the money then I would get something more established for sure.

    I think fanatec in the summer could be interesting with their Podium series...

    I never knew with a kickstarter that you could cancel? , does this change for each diff kickstarter campaign.,, also when you signed up did they take full amount of money.

    You can cancel before they fund the Kickstarter.

    Seems like updates have stopped on this, I thought this one was less risky than the Pimax, but at least Pimax are shipping now. Well that's probably a few quid down the crapper.

    Possibly, I’ll just write it off and if something does come I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

    No updates since September after getting a “PR Department” doesn’t bode well for getting anything back.

    Just seen it this morning. Big update but seriously nothing for a month is ridiculous and gets people worried. Why they don’t post regular updates is beyond me.

    Yep, I'm relieved and will sit it out with fingers crossed. I was just looking on the sim-plicity website when the e-mail came in lol

    Another update:

    Survey
    We are going to launch a survey to get delivery addresses.

    Please choose carefully between the power supply outlet types and voltages

    Outlet types:

    • type (F), used in Germany, , Netherlands, Spain, ...
    • type (B), used in North and Central America, Japan, ...
    • type (G), used in the UK, Ireland, Cyprus, Malta, ...
    Mains voltages:

    • 110V AC, 60 Hz
    • 220V AC, 50 Hz
    The address will be used for both Pedals and Wheel delivery, while power options above are applicable to Wheel only as Pedals are powered just by USB 2.0 type A port.


    Maybe they'll get them shipped by the end of the year?
