    I want to buy rim for CSL Elite base connected to PS4 system. What is the best choice to use it on GT3/F1 cars (Project Cars 2, GT Sport, F1 2018). New F1 rim? McLaren GT3? or old version Clubsport F1 rim? Little bit confused ) 
    Before today announcement waited for BlackFriday discount on McLaren GT3 rim, but now don't know what to choose, because of 2 more f1 rims
  • Perfect? Rest assured that there will be no Fanatec steering wheel with FAKE buttons and no F1 licensed wheel without rev lights and at least a small display. ;)
    By perfect i was refering to the looks of that rim, ive never touched a Thrustmaster wheel in my life but seen images of that rim and always wanted Fanatec to release a full fledged Formula 1 rim and with the official license i was really excited and from The images you've released it looks like your just releasing another generic f1 type rim and nothing genuine looking!

    I'm completely new to sim racing and checked out the possibilities for PS4. I opt for fanatec. Like all other people I was hoping for the 300€ Bundle or an other good deal for me. Unfortunately there is no deal for me, deal no. 4 is way too much money for me to start. Now I'm disappointed that I didn't ordered six weeks ago :)

    Edit:
    Ordered the PS4 starter Bundle and the loadcell kit. I‘m happy like a little child.

    Same for me, I'm hot for trying out wheels but your shop and sales lack a "complete" entry bundle and I think you are losing customers to Thrustmaster because of this. I consider 3 pedals as a must, this would be the load cell kit. An entry bundle for me would be:


    Sadly it's just the wheelbase 25%, when you add the pedals etc. you can also buy the bundle above for similar price, no real deal when your new into sim racing. #4 for 1000$ is too much to start with. #2 is F1 .. :/

    The deals I was hoping for were pedals (such as the V3/V3 inverted), base (such as the 2.5) or some nice add-ons.
    I'm not expecting any 300,- EUR bundle, but was hoping for premium gear with a tad off the price.
    A generic 10% (higher is better, heheh...) off (not usable with other offers) would be great for example ;-).
  • I also asked if this steering wheel will then be the one on sale along with the podium ps4 because then I would directly evaluate the podium as soon as it will be announced.
    +1 for this question. Would it be possible to hint before Black Friday if the Podium Racing Wheel default rim will overlap with offer 5 a lot?

    Anyway, the offers are great and also the "mystery product" seems to be the new tradition already! :)

  • After the (ireal and nefarious) result of the auctions I really expected some discount for all kinds of users. It seems that the offers are focused on PS4 users.
    I did not expect the offers to be as they were last year, but there were real options for Xbox users in all ranges.
    Only a few products and in limited units.
    Fanatec will say that there are interesting options for everyone, but it is not real. Maybe they do not need new clients or users who simply want to improve their configurations little by little.
    I feel disappointed since the new generation of consoles arrived and the money invested went to the trash because there was no option to adapt them to the new consoles.
    Perhaps the time has come to consider other brands.
    Thank you for nothing.
  • I would like to know if offer number 5 is the same rim which will be part of the Podium Racing Wheel for PS4? Wouldn’t like to pay double for the same rim;)
  • I’d also like to know if fanatec know how long it’s going to take to game producers to release patches to make the PS4 podium compatible with their games?

  • Hi to all here. Im a new Customer at Fanatec but i have a look at Fanatec since the last 2 Years and play Games / Racegames since the Commodore 64 and Test Drive 1 :) Certainly Fanatec have great products, so the wish in me to have a wheel from you guys g was getting bigger and bigger over the last months. So i saved a little money for the Black friday. I was ready to buy only a Part ( but Something from the Clubsport Line) at BF and the rest over the next 2-3 months If there is no interesting Complete package. Hoped for the V3 pedals or the V 2.5 or after nice Clubsport rim. So i was really excited. And then i saw your BF deals and i only was really disapointed. I only thought to my self what the hell should i do with these offers???!!!. The F1 rims are for the Most simracer uninteresting because they Play many different games and the rest only the CSL stuff. I was really sad about that. Because its Not for everybody easy to pay the price for your products ( of course they are worth IT). But i really wanted to buy some Clubsport stuff ( Not a F1 rim ). So i thought about what to do now. And because i Want to Play now with your products and wanted to get a little discount also i was forced to order the Xbox competition Pack yesterday. In that way i have the most important Clubsport Part the V 2.5. The pedals and the rim i can Change the next months. I know you guys dont owe us anything. But from the vop of new Customers like me, it would be really nice If you would offer a Part from all your product lines. And now i wait total excited for my orderd Competition Pack , to get back on track :blush:
  • I’d also like to know if fanatec know how long it’s going to take to game producers to release patches to make the PS4 podium compatible with their games?

    Don‘t know what the producers should patch, I had the opportunity to test the podium wheel at the community event. Works in Assetto Corsa, Project Cars and Gran Turismo like a charm. Feels amazing, really looking forward to place a pre order...

    Only reason I ask as it it took GT Sport a while before the csl elite base worked properly (not in g29 mode). After not much to go for during Black Friday for me personally I’m gonna hold out to see when the release date for the PS4 DD is, last thing I want is to spend all that money for it not be fully functional. Positive to hear you say that it works well already at the community event you tested it at
  • edited November 2018
    Its possible I could hit option 5 whilst there is a discount, however I cannot see any detail on the gt3 grip, Edit: overmoulded rubber detail found.

    I would not like it to arrive and find the grip is plastic with a horible seam like the stock csr rims ? I may also drop a preorder on a DD1 whilst they have the DD2 motor at the same time, I am very happy with my CSW v2.0 which I do not run anywhere near peak forces so how much of an upgrade is it over that and are the DD bases as easy to service as CSW bases ?

    Interesting, will PRW be compatible with coming PS5 or it's more advantageous to take DD1 with drivehub today.. ;-)
  • I need a full overhaul of my sim kit(only the GT OmegaRacing cockpit will survive),a Logitech G27 just doesn't cut it anymore(absolutely hate the notchy FFB)
    Alas,these BF deals i waited for don't suit my needs as i'm looking to upgrade to high end hardware.
    I'm only interested in a direct drive wheelbase and 'took part' in Thursdays auction for the DD1(Not the best 7 hours of my life I've spent,haha).

    After the auction fully prepared to stump up the 999 euros from the Fanatec store because i'm under no illusion that the DD1 would be in the BF sales but i was hoping hoping for at least ClubSport V3 pedals and/or a good wheel/hub in the sale and now i am unsure what to do?

    To get everything i want without any sales discount is gonna cost me me close to 2000 euros.

    :-O 

    I've looked in other direct drive units such as the Accuforce 2 but i really had my mind set on Fanatec due to there wide range of products(the McLaren GT3 wheel is very tempting)and their solid reputation sim gear.

    Maybe i'll pre-order the DD1 and try ebay for the wheel and pedals but not maybe not in that order ;)

    Anyway,sorry if it sounds like i'm moaning,keep up the good work Fanatec
  • Will the CSL Elite Wheel Base be strong enough to drive the wheel from offer 5? I'm wondering if there's gonna be some weight added to it that would make it harder for the base to turn it.
  • Not bad  Offer 5 for me. Podium series seems good one ! I think I'm gonna be Fanatec family soon!  B-) =D> 

  • Will the CSL Elite Wheel Base be strong enough to drive the wheel from offer 5? I'm wondering if there's gonna be some weight added to it that would make it harder for the base to turn it.
    The CSL Elite Wheel Bases are certainly strong enough for the new wheel.

    So you used a podium base to play Gran Turismo? Was it the DD1, DD2 or specific one for PS4? Looking at the product codes the one for the PS4 shows DD1 in the product code title so is it using a DD1 base?
  • edited November 2018
    It was the specific one for PS4. As I understood it has the same Motor as the DD1 but the board is different due to PS4 compatibility. (If a security chip is needed or it is just software to work with PS4 does not matter, because you need the Sony license to use it). If you really need any DD wheel to play GT I can’t answer as I’m not playing it because of the much better alternatives AC and PC2. The FFB the feel of the weight of the car is so much better there. But that is kind of personal opinion I guess ;-)
  • I'm very much interested in offer 3 or perhaps 5 (depending on the price) but need to know first if any of them is compatible with Xbox One. Perhaps it's an idea to mention this in the offers. For some it is obvious but for others it isn't, at least not for me.
  • Hallo Thomas und Team,

    vielen Dank für die Angebote :x, ich find´s klasse und verstehe überhaupt nicht, wie man sich, obwohl freiwillig von Euch angeboten, teilweise so aufregen kann. Egal ob nun 10 oder 100 Euro günstiger, es ist ein Preisnachlass, dafür sollte man sich bedanken und nicht beschweren, aber gut, ist ein anderes Thema.

    Zu Angebot 4, was für mich definitiv in Frage kommt, habe ich eine Frage bitte, ist der Hub mit dem GT Kranz nicht etwas zu schwer für den Motor der CSL Elite WheelBase, was das FFB angeht? Auch habe ich ein wenig Probleme mit den 33cm Durchmesser des GT Lenkradkranzes, aber gut, die Möglichkeit, da auch einen gänzlich anderen Kranz in 50/70 Lochkreis draufzusetzen macht diese Bedenken schon wieder überflüssig, denke ich. Ich habe eben ein wenig Bedenken, dass 33cm im Gegensatz zu 30cm des PS4 Wheels zu groß werden könnten, wenn ich sie direkt vor mir habe/lenke.

    Ich bin etwas skeptisch eben ob des Gewichtes und ob die Kombi Hub/GT Kranz besser ist, als das im Set angebotene PS4 Wheel der CSL Elite PS4 Base. Der Hub ist ja nun schon etwas älter, das PS4 Wheel die neuere Entwicklung. Hm.

    Meine letzte Frage bezieht sich auf die Order. Muss ich am (ab) Freitag dann jede einzelne Komponente in den Warenkorb legen, oder gibt es da einen "Angebotsbutton" oder so etwas Ähnliches? Wenn ich jetzt noch den SQ Shifter dazu bestellen mag, wie sähe dies dann im Warenkorb aus?

    Danke für Eure Antworten und nochmals ein dickes DANKE, ich find´s toll!

    LG
    :x

    Thanks for clearing that up  :) I am looking at getting more involved with PC2 and AC but the majority of the leagues i participate in at the moment are on GT. I want something thats going to work well on all 3, my current wheel isn't bad but pedals aren't great. So upgrading everything, think i'm going to wait for the PS4 DD, its nice to have the latest stuff. 
  • To take advantage of offer 1 it's possible to buy the wheel separately of the pack CSL Elite Racing Wheel - officially licensed for PS4™ EU ??

    No, but the base will work with the PS4 with any rim, so you can get the CSL elite P1, which is basically the same and will allow the base to work the xbox as well. Not a bad way to go as you end up with a PC/Xbox1/ps4 wheel that way.

    OTOH that does bring it to price parity with the PS4 bundle and you won't have PS4 button caps, although I think if you contact customer service they can get you replacement parts for the caps. In my experience customer support has been excellent to deal with.

    Bottom line is if you wanted an entry level base with some different wheels, this is an excellent offer.  If you just want a PS4 bundle, you're better off with their bundle they already have.

  • Are you sure that this comparison really makes sense?

    CSL Elite is better than TS-PC. ;)
  • edited November 2018
    Are you sure that this comparison really makes sense?
    Agreed!!

    TS-PC is more of a CSL Elite+ competitor.  T300 doesn't really compete with the Fanatec Line, the TS-PC square up spec wise against the CSL Elite+, and the CSW v2.5 is beyond anything Thrustmaster can offer. When you compare the CSL elite+ against the TS-PC, you can see that the Fanatec base is actually the better value and the better performer. It's win-win really.

    Now if you want to make an argument that Fanatec should enter the $300 for a complete kit market, that's a different story. 
  • Hi all. Looking to purchase my first Fanatec products as I assemble my first real racing rig at home, utilising the next level Gt ultimate v2 as my platform. I will be playing on Xbox One X and potentially PC, but the PC will come much later on. I’ve spent ages researching and have decided on Fanatec over TM for numerous reasons. I was originally looking to purchase a club sport v2.5 bundle, but am worried that there will be too much flex on the mounting platform due to increased weight and torque and simply it is too much for what I need right now, so am edging towards the CSL Elite PS4 compatible base, so potentially package 4 or similar could be of interest. I will 100% need the LC pack and the shifter. Again I think V3 pedals will be too much for my needs. Any advice? Will be purchasing ASAP. Thanks

    Sounds like you have it sorted out.  The V3s are nice, but I'm not sure they add much performance over the CSL+LC. The CSW v2.5 certainly is a little heavier given it's metal construction, but you can always turn the power down if it's too much.  That said the CSL elite+ has only gotten rave reviews, so you really can't go wrong.

    The one thing to watchout for is that the xbox compatibility needs an wheel with an xbox button. So your choices of wheels will be limited.
  • I have had a V2 base for two years, one T300 for 4 months and last week i could try a TS-PC. I would like to know if the people who write their opinion here have also tested them like me.

    I love the Fanatec products, and i prefer the v2.5 over the t300, even over the Ts-PC (but only by the quick release and the fanatec Wheel offer). The force feedback, i prefer the TM, no doubt. The problem is the overprice on the fanatec products (entry level and medium range). However, I also have to say, to be fair, that in the direct drive range, the Fanatec offer seems the best. I think that the most demanding users will take the leap to Fanatec DD.


  • Dear Thomas aka BIG BOSS 

    Please can you add either or all of the following products on your Black Friday sale

    ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5
    CSL Elite McLaren GT3 CSQR EU
    ClubSport Pedals V3

    Regards 

    MB. I want to SIM race using a wheel instead of my controller. 
  • I'm very interrested with the offer 5 but what do you mean about Podium upgrade ? 

  • Thank you for your proposal but this is too late for 2018.
  • If you had a Combo 4 that was Club Sport I would be so all over it.

    I have been waiting for 6 months hoping for some Club Sport items to go on sale, I guess I'll have to wait a bit longer.

    Was hoping for peddles or a base, since I haven't bought anything yet Wheels will do me no good :P

    Like I said if it was a ClubSport pack like #4 with a base and peddles I would be so down, but I am not interested in the CSL range for my new VR setup.
  • No way to get a discount code instead? I'm new to your ecosystem and none of these deals fit my needs. Anything would help, even to save on shipping as I have $1650 in my cart. Never hurts to ask. Sorry if I'm breaking some kind of unwritten rule. Thanks and Happy Holidays!
  •  I am insanely disappointed with the deal selection this year. I'm newish to sim racing and I was hoping there might be deals like last year with the CSL and the inverted pedals but the only deals that you have this year are for the PS4 which I realise is what some people are asking for but I guarantee that there will be less sales this year than last year by completely excluding a console. I'm tempted to still get the advance xbox bundle but you may have just lost one, as well as many other, future continuous customers to thrustmaster.

    There's a reason it's cheaper.  it is mostly about what kind of experience do you want
  • Thomas, I don't understand offer 5. It offers a wheel, but does not describe it or offer a price.

    I have an Elite PS4 setup but use the Porsche RSR wheel with it and also the Clubsport v3 brakes. On GTSport on the PS4 console. But the Porsche RSR wheel is not seen by GTSport and I cannot configure anything on it for GTSport. Which is a shame because I am much faster with the Porsche wheel. Will offer 5 also not be configurable inside GT Sport?
  • Oh and my drivers are all the latest, same to for GTSport's version. 
  • Are these new F1 rims Xbox compatible?
  • How is the delivery on the 5th offer?
  • I am also disappointed. 
    I was looking for a shifter hand-brake combo or some discounted rims. Doh.
  • Thomas 

    It's understandable Fanatec cannot fire sale their best selling products as you are running a business, but if you cannot offer the products I require in your BF sale how about a small gesture to help my purchase feel like Christmas deal? 

    Any discount code amount will help :) Please


    Regards
