No way! I was trying to contac the guy who wrote the original message. Please do let me know how you get on. Do you have a hori controller?

Yeah I only play Iracing so at least I know the ace feels somewhat better in that department. However, the thought of missing out on GT7 with my friends is kinda pissing me off.

I actually think our only option is PS4 GT7.

Did you manage to give the drivehub + GIMX combo a try? Not to long left and I want to exhaust all my options to get my SC2 working on PS5 before I resort to getting a PS4 + GIMX.

YES!!! it works, I used the GIMX + Drive Hub and wired Hori controller and my wheel has not disconnected once, been playing Gran Tourismo sport for hours, I also played WRC 9 the PS5 version and it works on there too... so that means it will work with GT7 PS5 version!!

I'll try to get my hands on one and test some PS5 games.
Had you tried other games besides racing ones?

Out of curiosity, why does drive hub need to be in the equation? Can't I just use gimx with the Hori controller and just have it work that way without drive hub?

You know I also wondered the same thing but I believe it's something to do with the controller aspect since it won't go into standby thus making the wheel stop working.

Where on earth can I get myself a GIMX from? Can't find it in stock anywhere and I'm eager to have everything I need ready for GT7.

Where do you live.
I would strongly recommend you to buy the parts and solder yourself. (Super easy as long as you take your time.)

Parts needed
Arduino pro micro ATMEGA32U4
CP2104 USB Uart
3 wires (any wire works)
Solder iron with a thin tip and solder. (It helps alot using flux but you dont need it.)
