Here’s everything you need to know about the Simagic Alpha direct drive wheelbase…
Simagic Alpha direct drive wheelbase features a three phase, servo motor for the most immersive force feedback experience of your life!
You ready for the most immersive sim racing experience you’ll likely come across in your life? That’s exactly what’s on offer here with the Alpha direct drive wheelbase.
From the moment you pull the Alpha from the box, bolt it to your rig and start racing…you’ll be stunned, shocked and won’t be able to wipe the ear-to-ear smile from your face.
The Alpha is easily one of the best performing direct drive wheelbases for the price.
That’s because it’s a direct drive wheel. No bands or gears here, your wheel is connected directly to the steering shaft and motor handing you incredible in-game force feedback sensations.
You’ll feel every turn, crash, bump and slide.
This incredible performance is controlled by three (yes THREE!) CPUs. This triple CPU set-up processes incoming data at a rapid rate – just 1ms latency. Resulting in a 1,000Hz refresh rate for USB communication, and a 40,000Hz update rate for force feedback controls.
All up the Alpha servo motor spits out a HUGE 15Nm of torque, one of the most powerful direct drive motors you’ll find anywhere.
Not only does the Alpha pack incredible specs, it looks amazing, too.
You’ve got a CNC machined aviation aluminium housing anodized black.
The housing is just 15cm long. So, not only is the Alpha one of the most powerful and realistic direct drive wheelbases on the market right now, it’s also ultra-compact and will easily bolt to any racing simulator cockpit.
Complete PC plug and play system. Just plug your new Simagic Alpha into your PC, fire-up the Race Manager software…and start racing!
The Simagic Alpha is a complete plug and play system.
Simply plug in the included USB cable, download the race manager software (to tweak and fine-tune in-game settings) and start racing.
It’s really that simple. The Alpha is ready to race right out of the box.
A super-accurate and hyper-sensitive direct drive wheelbase. You’ll feel every in-game sensation coming your way
The Alpha’s three CPU’s are built to provide accurate, real-time feedback.
Featuring a 1,000 Hz refresh rate for lightning fast in-game data communication and a monster 40,000 Hz refresh rate for force feedback control.
Combined, the Simagic Alpha ultra-low latency of just 1ms for near-instant feedback.

If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.
And we’ll (not so) humbly say there’s lots of reasons we think you should shop with us…and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi.
First up, we’ve got a policy here at Gamer Gear Direct we like to call…

And the only way you’re going to do that is when you’re happy with our service, right?

Joe Platt had this to say: ‘Just want to say how awesome the gaming chair is that we bought. Amazing quality, helpful service and the fastest delivery of an online purchase. Arrived Next Day!’
And this from B. Richardson: ‘Purchased an Audeze headset and it arrived inside two days. Thanks for the fast shipping and great service!’
That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you.
