    Very good question, ive noticed that too and also the paddle shifters are now made of aluminum. Not sure whether the aluminium made is cheaper than carbon fibre. Used to be fully carbon fibre shifters. Either way amazing quality products

    On feb 6th he answered me this on facebook, when I asked the same question:

    German:
    Die C26-Serie wird nicht mehr produziert. Es wird intensiv an neuen Produkten gearbeitet, welche in den nächsten Monaten erscheinen werden.

    English:
    The C26 series is no longer produced. I am working intensively on new products, which will be released in the coming months.

    I wish someone would mass produce a decent wheel plate for DD (or any other with an adapter) with a decent number of buttons, a couple of rotaries and mag shifters......all for around £150. There's not actually that much to them but they are produced in such low numbers the price is very high....

    The fantastic knitter push buttons that most custom wheel plates use cost 10€ each :-D

    Yes but that's a high end switch, a cheaper but still perfectly functional switch is available. There's no reason why a low-mid price wheel plate would not be very successful....especially to those with more than one wheel. I don't need to spend (or have available to spend) £1000 on a steering wheel to play a computer game....

    Knitter buttons feels soooooo awesome. :D I'm glad that we have the option to buy high end stuff with these nice buttons. But @ravey1981 has a point there. Knitter buttons and real carbon are not necessary for a button box. There should be way more stuff in the low-end range.

    I'm waiting for a decent H-Shifter, that feels like a ''normal'' one... even these highend H shifter over 1000Euro aren't close to normal (listening to most reviews)... you have the TH8A with alsmost no resistance and then a lot of 3D printed stuff which isn't the real deal eather.... and then the Fanatec Tank Shifter.... frustrating market situation x) (hoping ascher Racing comes up with something maybe) or a Fantec Podium Shifter LoL ...

    Heusinkveld is working on an H-Shifter for 2 years now I think. But they ditched their first design because it didn't feel realistic enough. I guess we can expect some news regarding this during 2019.

    Today the last batch of my aluminum profiles arrived. Waited 4 weeks for them. My plan was to replace every profile on my rig with a clean profile without slots where possible.

    Anodised bolts should complement the look.

    Furthermore I want to build new sleeved cables to connect a self made button box, a Heusinkveld handbrake and shifter directly to the controller of the HE pedals.

    I guess this will be a long weekend. :)

    @ravey1981 Thanks! :) It's a 128x64 black/white screen. Can be programmed with custom screens for lap times, tire pressure and all the usual stuff. I know, there are way more advanced methods for doing this like high res touch screens but at the time I bought the display (2014) I didn't know it better. :D But at least it doesn't eat up much CPU resources and it's very reliable.

    All these fancy setups, i just bolt mine to my desk whenever i want to use it. I do have a new wheel fitted to the G25 though, nothing special but i'm on a tight budget, my RX8 PZ eats up all my cash at the moment. I need to get some paddle shifters though, they look a bit small now. I also use a Rift headset. I'll put my setup below, all the lighting is rgb and it's usually just on a low blue glow like in the wheel pic. I'll be moving at some point soonish so i'm putting off doing anymore.

    Are the backlights mostly a pale pink when you've got pornhub on?
