The wait is over! Clubsport Wheel Base V2 and Shifter are on the way to customers

All obstacles were removed and all tests succesful so we can start the delivery of the ClubSport Wheel Base V2 from today.

All customers who pre-ordered the V1 and have been upgraded will get their wheel next week and the week after, depending on where they are located.

Production is now running on full speed and more inventory is on the way. But as the pre-orders are rising fast, we will have to postpone the shipping date for new orders very soon.

We have also started to ship all open orders of the ClubSport Shifter and production is also running well here.

  • Any news when the XBone compatible wheels will be available?

  • YAY!!!! Great news can't wait :D
  • Wie schön, mein Paket bleibt auf jeden Fall erstmal zu, bis die PS4-Frage geklärt ist. Was nützt mir die beste Base, wenn sie nicht unterstützt wird. Eine Sch.....box nur für Sim-Racing kaufe ich mir definitiv nicht. Dann ziehe ich mich lieber von den Rennspielen zurück und verkaufe eine nagelneue Base. 

    :)
  • Cheers to you Thomas and the rest of Fanatec! Good things come to those who wait!


  • Warum freuen wenn man auch meckern kann.
    Kanns kaum erwarten das gute stück in den Händen zu halten. Freu mich riesig.
    Sehr gute Nachrichten Thomas. :)>-
  • That is very good news. I will wait, but not patiently, for delivery. :-)  The post on the CSW V2 compatibility with Xbox One was also great news. If I understand, existing Xbox 360 wheels (the one that came with the CSR Elite) will work with the V2 base on the Xbox One. Is that correct?
  • Na dann hoffe ich mal, dass Deutschland in der nächsten Woche dran ist. :) Gute Nachrichten!
  • YES YES YES! :)
    Ich bin sehr gespannt und freue mich auf die ersten Runden mit der neuen Base! Langstreckenmeisterschaft ich komme! ;)
  • Great news! <:-P

    But while some lucky folks will get their wheels very soon, I'm still waiting for my code :((

    Please Fanatec ^:)^  It's time! :!!
  • We need some news on PS4 compatibility, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE !!!!!!!!!
  • Enjoy your upgrades and shifters
  • Some news about wheels for xbox one? 
  • Great news ! Thx !  
  • Na wer sagt es den, alles wird gut.
    Ich wünsche euch jetzt schon viel Spaß mit der Base, den diesen werdet ihr haben ;-)

    no, it will be new wheels
  • Yes I have the same question. I am ordering the new CSW V2 next week and would like to know more info about when the Xbox One wheel with be available.

    Oh by the way. I noticed no one has asked this question. How are we going to use our mics on the xbox one if there is no jack for us to plug into on the V2 base?

    Trevor. I don't think you read what Thomas said correctly. He said you will need a Xbox one wheel to work on the CSW v2 base. There are two reason why. One is the security chip for the Xbox one is different than the 360 and the wheel connects differently to the base on the CSR Elite than it does one the CSW V2. Hope this helps.

    There are no microphone plugs on Xbox One wheels so you will need to use a separate head set or Kinect. I cannot say anything about a release date but I was quite happy to hear the new release date of pCARS.

    Maybe I was thinking about the original post, before it was updated to "clarify" compatibility comments. No big deal. I will just leave the CSR Elite  base and wheel as is, for Xbox 360 and iRacing game play. And go with a new wheel for the CSW V2 base when I figure out which wheel I want. Hey, its only money. Have to keep the wheels of the economy turning, right? Oh, and too bad about the lack of a mic connection.  
  • So what region is the United States considered and please tell me we will at least get a email when to expect delivery honestly I don't trust my neighbors.
  • This is awesome news. Any idea when we can expect stock of the USB adapter and shifter tablemounts? I ordered both the mount and USB adapter with CS shifter SQ.

    Cheers guys.

    Actually Thomas was kind enough to explain that we will still be able to talk, just with a wireless head set or though the Kinect. So nice to see him active on the forums. I am sure he gets very busy running Fanatec.

    Please send me my V2, thanks!!!!. Thomas, can we still use our headset if it's plugged into the controllers audio adapter while racing on the wheel? If not possible can you request MS allow this in a future dash update?

    So, we're looking at March at the very earliest for any more news then?? I wonder if this means ALL Xbox One wheels or just the compatible rims for the V2 base.

    I also wonder if we will have any PS4 news before then.

    More questions than answers yet again...

    On a more positive note, I am certainly looking forward to watching some reviews from the lucky owners in that first shipment (PS3/GT6 performance especially).

  • any word when Australians will get the V2's

    on facebook you said Europe and USA with no mention of Australia... i ordered mine a month ago and wondering when Aussies pre ordered will be sent
  • So is it only the guys who pre ordered the v1 this year who will recieve the base before december ?

    I think he is hinting that it will be released in our hands by then so that we can play project cars with it on March 15th
  • Dont tease me Thomas please about to send V1 in for repair now not sure weather to wait the extra week for new  V2 base so i can keep playing ffb cut out or not please update accounts asap so we know this for sure.
     
  • Juhee die ersten Bases werden ausgeliefert. Was will man mehr. Danke Thomas!!!
  • What about the XBOX ONE wheels? Guess the designs should be finalized, would like to order right away. 

    Project CARS has been delayed :((

    Time management trainings should help to make customers happy...:))

    I certainly hope so. We need some firm news, release dates, designs, prices, etc, asap so we can decide which product to order to fit our needs.
  • wie schön
    das warten hat ein ende

    \:D/

    yeah i want a round shaped wheel for about $200 and not just an F1 rim and everything else over $300
  • We need a universal xbox one hub that we can add any of the wheels available now. @-)
  • For all of you in the wait, 18min of gameplay with the CSW v2 on Assetto Corsa, with increasing FFB power (+20% every 3 laps, from 60 to 120%. Assetto ffb gain: 50%).

    Have fun watching :)

  • This is crap.

    My Shifter has been on order since April, over 6 months waiting and still have not received any date or expected date to receive my order.

    I was also told my order for the CSWB V2 will be after mid November when they will be ready, but now I see this post saying they are being sent out now, well maybe not to us in Australia, we get left behind again?

    What the hell is going on?

  • Thanks, John, for the video. Enjoyed that. Your best setting for CSW ffb, looked like 80%? The 100% and 120% looked like they could be exhausting over a long race. 
    Cheers!
  • In mp race conditions, and with assetto ffb [email protected] and [email protected] on the wheelbase, FOR 60-70 with the F1 rim, and +20 to that if I play with the GT rim. Good grip feeling, and not too much a handicap for laptimes.

    Even at this level it is already exhausting for me when doing 2 consecutives 30min mp races. Room temp increases from 21/22°C to 24/25 and I'm turning on a ceiling fan during the race to limit sweating^^  More ffb power would indeed become very exhausting for 2x 30min races, unless you are stronger than I am (I weight a bit more than 80kg).

    Nothing to see here. My mistake. LOL!!!!

  • Denise,

    As has been mentioned many times. The code does NOT correlate with a price. It just enables you to pre-purchase the wheel base itself. The price is standard for everyone with a code and to get the $499 price, you needed to be one of the first pre-order customers.

    As the availability date gets closer and as the wait time gets shorter, Fanatec are going to continue to increase the price closer to full RRP.

    So I would suggest pre-ordering at $529 now if you are interested in still getting the best possible discount.
  • When are the next set of invites going out?
  • Woo! Just ordered! Thank you Thomas for offering me the $75 discount! You did not need to give us discounts, and I appreciate it. Now, I wait for the official Xbox One rim. :D

  • really need an update on the rim for the xbox one so i don't have v2 for pc with no xbox support forcing me to keep my TX.
  • Landon,

    Thomas has already replied saying that Fanatec would rather decline comment at this stage that give false information or quote an unachievable lead time. They will give us an update when they can. However I wouldn't be expecting one until Q2 2015.
  • Memo to all console owners:
    Blow up or sell your consoles. I've been playing P CARS for 2 years now on pc. T10 has been upscaling the same game for what... 3 iterations (and it's not getting better. And gt5/6, well you can still plug in a good old USB to the PS3 and voila! It works.
    Iracing, rfactor, and simbin (or whatever they are calling themselves) actually read their own forums, and give at least act like they give a s#%* about what is said there. Think about it, when was the last time Dan Greenwalt and his "team" at turn 10 actually said anything to anyone except, basically, "our gamers don't know what they are talking about (should have added "eff you suckers, "we" haven't done anything to Forza for almost a decade, and Yall keep buying it.") ..btw.. I'm convinced it's like him and maybe an intern or two working at t10, mostly on PR... I say this because, I, alone could have turned fm5 in to fm6 if I was paid to work full time on the upscaling and smoke effect improvements all by myself.
    Anyway, I resisted too... It's time to give up while your ps4/ex-bone's are still worth enough to build a decent pc.
