Hey Mr. Latte, what is the servo wheel that has been announced? Also, I dont have an actual d-pad on my plate but I have 4 buttons arranged in a d- pad formation. You can buy d-pad switches though and integrate them into a plate. The plate I have posted for my t500 is my first one and was put together quickly with supplies I had on hand. I plan on making a much nicer one. I have toyed with the idea of custom making button plates for other SIM racers because I have had a few people ask me but I haven't put too much thought into it yet. I do have access to proprietary circuit boards now that emulate the original TX rim. I have not tested mine yet as it only arrived yesterday but I plan on testing the circuit for cross compatibility with the three main bases. If all goes well this could replace the Arduino board and Arduino software that my current plate runs off of. The cost of the boards is higher than that of an Arduino though. If I were to build and sell plates I would have to solder my own boards to keep costs down. If you would like you can private message me and ill give you my phone number. I can least go over the options that are available and what the most cost effective route would be. I dont know what you electronic skills are but I would always be more than happy to walk you through your own build process and help in any way I can. I always enjoy helping out a fellow SIM racing enthusiast
