    Great News!!! Congrats \:D/ WOW!!! and at a Great Price point Kudos and Cheers Thomas and Fanatec team =D>
  • YESSSS!!!!!!!!! Thanks Thomas!!!!!!!
  • Will this new base/wheel work with PS3 also?
  • Was excited until I saw it looks like the same dpad on the XBox one version and its a piece of garbage.  breaks so easily and becomes useless and is a deal breaker.
  • Order placed! Excited to get it!

    Going to start with this and likely upgrade along the way!

    This has a much improved version of it
  • Finally!!! Thank you Thomas. One question before I put an order in. Will you have an advanced bundle available, like the one ed for the XboxOne version wheelbase?
  • FANATEC CSL ELITE PS4 COMING TO AMERICA!  FINALLY!!!
  • feel sorry for folks that bought the other CSL wheel, only for this to come out and is compatible with pc, xb1 (with wheel addon) and pc!
  • will the wheel base be available to purchase by alone? will we be able to configure it without the P1 wheel?
  • will the wheel base be available to purchase by alone? will we be able to configure it without the P1 wheel?
    As of now no. It's a package deal.
  • Order Placed!  Now i'm hoping maybe they clear customs and are shipped before the 27th :) (fingers crossed!)

    Good to see the newer reviews (SimRacingGirl) discuss the new firmware and how it helped to eliminate the noise from the base.  Some of the initial reviews were very honest about this and it almost put me off from buying it.,  I also appreciate the blog entry discussing the new firmware that helps with the issue.

    I'm hoping for a better product than my previous TM Alcantara set which lasted 10 months...Once repaired I'll be selling that to further upgrade my CSL Elite!

    Thank you team Fanatec!
  • Can I install this base on the Fanatec Club Sport Seat?

    Thanks

  • James Armenti , you mention that this base will work with XBOX ONE with the add on wheel... You are talking with the universal hub correct?

  • Is using FEI necessary to prevent damage to the wheel from whatever is causing the rattling?

    Is the rattling considered normal? Will it damage the wheel in any way?

    What is physically causing the rattling?

    Just wondering Fanatec's official stance on the above questions...looking forward to getting my wheel, the wait is killer. Thanks.
  • Hi - I preordered the wheelbase/rim. Will all preorders ship on the release date (Sept. 27) or might it take longer to ship? Trying to time my selling of my current Thrustmaster rig. Please let me know!
  • Hi Fanatec,

    Just waiting for the news CLS steering wheels hope will be a formula type one
    :D
  • Hello Thomas Jackermier,

    I am an Xbox One user and I was wondering if we will see Xbox One compatibility with the ClubSport Steering Wheel Porsche 918, BMW GT2, and Formula One Carbon? I am a potential customer and I am ready to invest in a wheel and pedal setup but would really have liked to be able to purchase one of the above mentioned wheels. I see that the PS4 now has compatibility with the Clubsport Wheels. Will we see that support extended to the Xbox One? 

    I really hope so. Its a big investment to buy a quality wheel and pedal setup and it would be nice to be able to use the high quality Clubport Wheels with the Xbox One.

    The wheels you mentioned will not be X1 compatible but we are currently working on several new steering wheels for the One and I am sure you will not be disappointed.

  • As usual we will announce the availability as soon as we finished the first production run.

    I am not sure the hub allows for the those wheels to work. Is the hub specifically for aftermarket wheels to attach to the hub?

    When I was looking at the products on the Fanatec website, trying to weigh the pros and cons and trying to decide which setup was for me, I thought the hub allowed compatibility with the Porsche 918 RSR, BMW GT2, and Formula One carbon wheels. Basically I thought the hub allowed the Xbox One compatibility with all of the "PC" designed wheels. However someone pointed out on a forum that the hub is designed to allow any aftermarket non electronic wheel to attach to the electronics of the hub, with the hub communicating to the Xbox One allowing compatibility. The "PC" wheels have the electronics built in to the wheel therefore they cannot attach to the hub.

    Anyone please weigh in and correct me if I am wrong. :)

    @Thomas Jackermier, Can you give us any details on the new Xbox One wheels? Pretty Please! :)



  • Hello,

    Can a mac computer be used to update the Fanatec firmware?
  • Sorry that I ask this again, but I need to know before I order.
    Right now I have the clubsport V2.0 mounted on my Fanatec CSL seat, can I mount this new CSL Elite PS4 base on my CSL Seat?

    THANKS

    I found this on the product page. Please refer to them in the future for information. https://www.fanatec.com/us-en/racing-wheels/csl-elite-racing-wheel-ps4.html Mounting on cockpits and wheel stands: 3 hard-mount points on the bottom of the wheel base. Please refer to the drilling template in the download section for the hole pattern and distances. The hole pattern is identical with the ClubSport Wheel Bases without the angle adapter (3 hard-mount holes). Please take note that the CSL Elite Wheel Base (PS4™ version) hole pattern is NOT compatible to the discontinued CSL Seat.

    Funny to see that I'm not the only one who is eagerly awaiting a shipment notification.  Anyone else choose express shipping?

    I see that the product page now says "In Stock" ...so that a good thing :)

    Edit!!! - my order status is now "shipped"!!!

    My order just changed to have the Actual Shipping date of today. Yay.  I couldn't stomach the express shipping cost this time around. I chose regular as I really only need this new base for Gran Turismo Sport on PS4. I'm currently playing PCARS2 on PC with my "old" CSW V1 so I'm in no rush as long as it arrives before GTS.

    Mine just changed, too. :D

  • Thanks for reply mine now states Shipped as well very excited, I am upgrading from a fanatec 911 GT3 rsv2 which has served me well
    Awesome upgrade!
  • Mine is marked "Shipped" as well. Thank you for the update.



  • Has anybody received tracking info yet? I see my order marked as shipped on my order status page but haven’t received a tracking info email.
  • No tracking email yet as of 7:45pm est on 9/27 I keep checking my email
  • More excited for the new wheel than I was for my last iPhone shipment
  • No tracking email.
  • None for me yet either. I chose standard shipping. So not sure if that matters or not. 
  • No tracking information has been provided, and my shipping status had changed very early on 9/27. Hopefully we all get some updated information shortly.

  • no tracking email either.

    I did email the webshop staff and they said they had a delay yesterday (9/27) and plan to dispatch all Preorders on the wheel today (9/28).

    Not sure if this is happening for anyone else but since I not only pre ordered the wheel I got myself some inverted pedals ect and next to it, it says processing still. though next to my wheel it says shipped along with the status it says shipped.

    I'm assuming it means my products that I ordered are all getting shipped together.

    hoping to at least get the email tonight or tomorrow (9/29) I can imagine fanatec has to be crazy busy with all these orders.

    exciting time of the year!

  • Hey Jordan - same with me. I ordered pedals, shifter and Porsche wheel at the same time and they still show up as processing even though the CSL Elite says shipped. I’m guessing this is just a glitch and they will ship it all together. Glad to hear I’m not the only one. Customer support replied to me earlier today saying I should be getting tracking info late tonight and they are shipping today.

    Same here, ordered a load cell, A/C sensors, and a  PS2-RJ12 cable along with the wheel. The wheel shows shipped and the other three items show processing.
    Edit: 10:45PM Central Time, 9/28, no tracking email received here either.

    Also would like to know Fanatec's official stance on the questions I posted earlier this week regarding FEI and the rattling that has been reported in the wheelbase:

    Is using FEI necessary to prevent damage to the wheel from whatever is causing the rattling?

    Is the rattling considered normal? Will it damage the wheel in any way?

    What is physically causing the rattling?

    Very funny.

    The rattle sound is totally harmless and will not damage anything.

    Thomas,

    Can you get us any information into what is happening with shipping on these?  All of our order status changed to "shipped" on 9/27 but none of us have received tracking information.  

    Thank you,
