VRS® DirectForce® Pro Wheel Base

Take control and feel the force

An intimate connection with the car and tires to feel what they're doing is crucial for every racer. The VRS® DirectForce® Pro Wheel Base is your point of contact with the virtual track as you sit in your rig. The simulation becomes real with up to 20Nm of force through the steering wheel. In fact, its equipped to be more powerful than 99% of racers will ever need. However, it's not just about force. It's also how quickly and accurately the wheel can deliver those forces. You’ll feel even the tiniest of changes in grip under low and high load conditions. When the rear steps out, the necessary correction will have been carried out through your hands before you even realize what happened. #iRacingWheelBase

MiGE motor

The VRS® DirectForce® Pro Wheel Base features the popular MiGE 130ST-M10010 (“Small” MiGE) motor, at its heart. It’s so responsive that any lag is essentially imperceptible. The motor unit is almost entirely free from internal inertia and friction and it was originally conceived for far more demanding applications than sim racing. Providing precision, power (20Nm peak), and durability, this motor can connect to several third-party steering wheel rims via our hub adapter. With the VRS® DirectForce® Pro Wheel Base you’ll finally obtain the ultimate experience in sim racing.

VRS® wheel base controller

The MiGE motor is controlled by the VRS® DirectForce® Pro Wheel Base controller known as the “brain” of the solution. Inside the compact steel enclosure is a custom engineered all-in-one USB force feedback & motor controller board bundled with a 400W fanless PSU and brake resistor.

On top of that, the controller algorithms measure, and compensate for, any inherent friction or notchy feeling in the motor when powering up through a phasing period of a few seconds making the MiGE motor deliver a precise and uniform response throughout its full range of motion that is unparalleled within the sim racing world.

Highlights

The VRS® DirectForce® Pro Wheel Base is so responsive that any lag is essentially imperceptible. The motor unit is almost entirely free from internal inertia and friction, and its industry leading construction only allows movement along the axis it’s intended to move in.

Unique controller algorithms are designed to deliver a precise and uniform range of motion by measuring and compensating for any leftover friction or notchy feeling in the motor, when powering up through a phasing period of a few seconds.

Advanced firmware and software offers comprehensive control over filters and effects minus any gimmicks or unnecessary fluff to ensure you a tailored, immersive, authentic and ultimately class leading experience.

Materials

Our engineers have carefully selected the highest quality materials for the VRS® DirectForce® Pro Wheel Base. Housing both the premium electronics on our custom PCB and its high-quality fanless PSU is an ultra-compact, rugged and powder-coated steel enclosure, complete with vent holes for optimal air circulation. With its CNC-machined aluminium body and stainless steel shaft and bearings, the MiGE's weight of 12kg speaks for itself. Connecting the system together are double-shielded heavy-gauge cables and rugged metal connectors.

Scope of Delivery

The VRS® DirectForce® Pro Wheel Base consists of: the VRS DirectForce Pro controller, which is a custom engineered all-in-one USB FFB motor controller, in a compact 5x16x18cm enclosure, complete with built-in 400W Mean Well PSU. The 20Nm MiGE motor with 22 bit BISS-C encoder and customized for the VRS DirectForce Pro controller.

3 meter motor power and encoder cables with double-shielding and quality metal connectors. A 2 meter double-shielded USB cable and an AC power cord for the respective region.

Additional accessories

Hub adapter & mounting bracket

Hub adapter

The VRS® hub adapter allows you to mount OSW compatible 70mm PCD steering wheels, quick releases or OSW conversion kits to the VRS® DirectForce® Pro Wheel Base. This hub adapter has 6 threaded holes which makes it easy to directly mount a steering wheel or quick release. Please note that some quick releases and OSW wheel conversion kits require hub adapters with through-holes. Please contact the manufacturer of your OSW wheel, quick release, or OSW conversion kit to confirm whether you need a threaded or through-hole hub adapter.

Mounting bracket

Depending on the rig construction you have, you may or may not need this optional bracket. If your rig already comes with a front motor mount, then you won't need this one. For mounting to a horizontal surface, you'll likely need ours.
