News 23rd May 2019

We're seeing huge demand and some great results in the racing world for our products - and not just on rally and track cars either!  FREEWheel can be found on drift and sprint cars and even powerboats! 

Congratulations to Pete Goulding, who has our 8-channel relay switched wireless controls and is leading the British Sprint Championship.  We're looking forward to seeing what Pete can do with our solid-state version with enhanced race features for next season.  Our matching buttonplate bundle for our 10-channel RACE system also comes with its own switch covers and button shroud.









It hasn't all been about racing this week - here's a quote from a very happy Ariel Atom owner with FREEWheel:

"WELL worth the effort - and cost.  The self-cancelling indicators and the other wheel mounted controls hugely enhance the Atom driving experience".

Thanks!


For the fastest installation, why not choose the Easyfit factory-soldered transmitter assembly, ready to bolt directly to your steering wheel?  The RACE version is just £589.  All come pre-programmed to your specification and access to our free, unique USB programming tool, so you can re-configure at your desktop - or lap - whenever your requirements change.


CAN communications technology

For the latest in racing technology, we have also have a CAN output option on the FREEWheel RACE for connection to a power distribution module.  Contact Us for more information including specification.  

Kit and Race Car Electronics

Kit cars, race cars.  We love them for their simplicity but sometimes this comes at a price - features that we take for granted in our mainstream cars can be sorely missed.  We've all come to indicate for a turn only to find we've still been indicating since the last turn two miles back...

We also love an upgrade.  Fitting push-buttons to an F1-style steering wheel is a great project but how do you use them to control your lights and indicators?

Or maybe you already have buttons or shift paddles on your steering wheel but you're fed up with broken cables and want an easily-detachable wheel, and so are thinking about adding a wireless control system?

Keen to take your racing to the next level?  With rainlight feature, wireless rotary switch support (traction slip control? multimap boost switching?), relay or solid state switching and USB reprogramming, there's a FREEWheel for you.

BlinkSTOP smart indicator cancelling control system.  Aftermarket upgrade for kit cars and race cars.

Why BlinkSTOP ?

  • BlinkSTOP auto-cancels your indicators after your pre-set duration. BlinkSTOP's smart features ensure it functions only when you want it to.
  • Use BlinkSTOP with traditional indicator bulbs or LED bulbs. BlinkSTOP works alongside your existing flasher relay.
  • Thinking about updating that toggle switch to steering wheel push-buttons? Uniquely, BlinkSTOP is user-configurable to work with either.
  • Paused in traffic or waiting to turn? Indicator cancelling is disabled by the brake pedal, and for 6 or 9 seconds afterwards so that the indicators remain on until you've finished your manoeuvre.
  • BlinkSTOP's configurable nature lets you choose between 12 or 18 second flash durations.
