Upgrading buttons on Clubsport Formula V2.5 rim.

Hello, all! First post!

This is my first week with my new Fanatec CSW 2.5 (used), Clubsport V3 pedals and CS Formula V2.5 rim. Obviously this upgrade over my Logitech has changed everything. There's just one thing I think that was downgraded in the swap, and that's the buttons on the rim itself.

The standard buttons for "X," "Y", etc. feel a little cheap and are already kinda squeaking on their way down. The "funky" switch thumbstick is much too soft and leads to a lot of accidental directional commands when I want to click it. (Is that why they put the "A" button right there?)

I expected more and I have heard these same complaints from much more credible racers like Boosted Media. I can't imagine wearing gloves and trying to feel these buttons. The thumbwheels spin much too easily to avoid "over-switching."

So, is there any place and has anyone endeavored to upgrade such buttons and switches on a Fanatec wheel rim? If so, where does one find such parts? Thanks in advance!
