    I suspect that the wheel that will come with the PS4 DD1 bundle will likely be the F1 Esports steering wheel (BF offer #3) 
    You can clearly see from this picture that this steering wheel has rotary thumb encoders unlike the F1 Esports steering wheel (BF offer #3)

    Oh good catch. Well then maybe the difference is that it won't be carbon fibre.

    Good point. 
    More satisfied customers and more money for Thom .... i mean Fanatec company ;)
  • Should I cancel my dd1 order since seems like xbox users get nothing, maybe I should switch back to ps4. Fanatec any Word on F1 rims for Xbox since PS4 has 4 to choose from now?
  • I understand that the "limited" nature of the ClubSport F1 wheel (offer 5) is just the color. However, does anyone know if the price will be any different when the "non-limited" color is finally offered?

    This is going to sound really dumb, but at this price point I almost need to feel like I'm getting a deal before I pull the trigger....Like, if this wheel is going to go for $400 or more in the future, I'll get it now. But if it's going to be the same price, I'll probably hold off on buying it, or forego it entirely and stick with what I have.

    I know what y'all will say, you either want it or not and are either going to buy it or not. But for some reason, it actually is mattering to me, and knowing I'm getting it at a discount actually makes the difference in whether I buy it or not.

    So......anyone have any info?
  • I’m wondering if the rotary switches will be compatible on PS4 with the F1 2018 game. The McLaren GT3 wheel switches are not supported in F1 2018 on PS4, which was disappointing as they are perfect for engine and ecu mapping. This will make the new F1 clubsport and/or podium wheels useless for console players. I hope I’m mistaken and support will become available.

    I don't like the size IMO it's too Small and too much like my regular F1 black rim...It looks Good but IMO it should have been the same size as the McClaren rim...But still it Almost Had Me!!!..Once I saw it did Not come with the Magnetic podium shifter Paddles any chance of Me ordering it went out the window.

    Whatever, cancelled the complete order.
    so i´ve saved over 1.600€
    Well I might be 350 euros approx poorer but its in exchange for something I want and can use.  In VR having those buttons, switches and rotaries so readily accessible is golden to me even if the size is still a tad small overall.

    If you cancelled purely because there were other batches available in another region does not really say you wanted it much in the first place in which case probably best you cancelled anyway ?
    I'm in the same boat, Using Rift + Fanatec is completely immersive, just needed a little more feedback to feel all the bumps, and tyres sliding than I currently do, so I ordered the DD1 + F1 Rim. I currently have the Forza CSR rim, and it's a pain to change things like brake balance, and Force feedback on the fly due limited buttons / no scroll wheel.  Diff lock changes were out of the questions until now :)




    Now that the limited edition is sold out...... Is there any chance of Fanatec getting someone to do a PC review of the wheel and DD1?

    Fanatec, 
    Why wasn't the Podium Advanced Paddle Module available in Australia...?
    And will it be available in the future to add to my order...?

    thank you

    The P APM is not currently available for pre-order in any region. Please sign up to email notifications so that we can inform you when it becomes available.

    I must say, I am really disappointed on some people reactions here. You might be unhappy with what Fanatec offers for Black Friday, but please keep in mind - they do not have to do that. They want to be nice to the community and try to set up nice bundles and offers. And some of you guys are not appreciating it. Quite sad to read.

    I was very happy with 2017 and also with 2018 - the F1 wheel is ordered and I can't wait to use it :-)

    Thanks Thomas and team!

    Spot on comments Martin, but unfortunately, people love to complain about everything and anything that doesn't give them EXACTLY what they want, when they want it... which is mostly all of the time.  L-)

    Anyway, I've ordered both the F1 wheel and a DD1. Can't wait for the day when they're both on my sim rig and I can push the 'GO! GO! GO!' button.   :)

    Exactly,

    people love to see the world burn...

    people don't go to the race event for the drivers but because want to see things like destruction derby, explosions, incidents... extreme crash...

    every people in the planet don't read a good news but only the bad news and is always ready to point their fingers against others.

    this is the world...

    I am less happy. ;-)  just spend another bundle of cash again and still do not have an excuse for it towards the Misses ;-)  F1 wheel is ordered and confirmed. Would love to see the podium shifters available before end of January 2019... So.. and now off to see if I can beat Hamiltons time on Yas Marina.

    i think that the limited edition is the colour... but it's impossibile that this rim is not in the catalog soon with another colour ( Clubsport Red ? ).

    No, a limited edition could be limited in time instead. For example, limited during the Black Friday weekend...

    What about the price? Will it be the same?

    I think that would be limited quantities. 

    A limited edition usually implies that some design element is only available for this short run.

    I use Rift+Fanatec+SimVibe. That really set off the imersion for me. I know of one person who already has the limited wheel that was for pre-order but he is a sponsored esports driver so that explains that.
  • I am excited about the prospects for the Podium Series wheels.  I am not looking for a replacement for my Formula rim, but I love the look and feature-laden nature of the SE F1 wheel. I will gladly spend the $350 for an upgrade to the McLaren rim.  I like the form of the current one, but there are intermittent button issues and the see-saw shifter - and a little too much flex.  I am hoping for a GT3 AMG/Audi/orCorvette wheel. Let's hope I/we don't have to wait until next Black Friday to see one (or two). 
  • Does the Limited Edition F1 wheel come with button caps and/or sticky labels? Just watched GamerMuscle's unboxing video of it and I didn't see any, but I'm assuming things might change with the final release? I liked the labels that came with the Mclaren GT3 wheel and just thought some F1 related button caps might help with the many controls (not much space for labels on the F1 wheel). 

    Also, a pause button is boring, make a drink button for pausing instead :-)

  • Also, I've already ordered one yesterday so hopefully this doesn't affect me, but I've noticed today that the delivery date on the US product page has changed to 0000-00-00 (yesterday when I ordered it said 2019-01-15)...there are still 51 wheels left for the US market...does that mean those who pre-order now will get their wheel at a later TBA date? 

    I hope the delivery for everyone has not been affected...Fanatec your products are great, but PLEASE don't do a "Mclaren release part 2" where it was delayed by 2 months.

    I don't think so. Just compare the pictures.

    Hi guys, to clarify, we've reassessed the demand in each region and relocated few more units to be available in the EU webshop. The total unit count of this limited edition remains, and this is the only adjustment we will be making, so you must act fast!
    The info on the site now is "This product is SOLD OUT! There are no units left and there will be no pre-order for this product!

    Subscribe to be notified of new formula product launches!"

    So thats means there will be no more units relocated for the UE like You promised Dominic?

    And one more question: what's will be the regular price of this steering wheel after BF promotion  - still 349.95 in UE? 

    Thx for Your info. 


  • i have ordered the limited edition f1 and already had the dd1 pre ordered but too bad the f1 steer comes end of januari so now i cant deside what weel to buy for december when i get the dd1 is the porshe weel any good? or wil there be a podium porshe weel next year?

    He said that yesterday and they relocated some units yesterday. Unfortunately the relocated units didn't last very long either, so they were sold out very fast, too. Sorry to say that, but you are about one and a half day too late ;)
  • I just bought F1 2018 for PC last week & was happy to take advantage of the blackfriday deal for the PS4 base setup with formula rim. Excited for the arrival next week. My hands can not take another minute of this game with a game controller.  I was really torn on which wheelbase to go with but after learning the PS4 was the same price as the elite with some internal upgrades from the v2.5 ? It seemed like a no brainer~!

    Fully agree, people seem to think the world owes them something and if they don't get it then they get offended. Fanatec dont owe anyone anything, we gravitate towards them because we like their products, does that mean they owe us sales with the exact items we want? No, some people here are just exhibiting me me me behaviour, acting like children, it is quite pathetic to be honest. If you don't have the money to get what you want then save for longer, seriously it is not rocket science. I have been saving my 40 bucks a week for 8 months to be able to afford the new items I just preordered below, do you see me complaining about them not being on sale? I also ordered the new rim and a dd1, can't wait to get it.

    It might be a non decision as you are assuming the dd1 will be released on schedule, I would not be surprised if it does not realease until January as only 3 weeks ago Thomas posted that they had made some changes and would not release until fully tested and passed qc. I would imagine this is quite a job.
  • So is the upcoming rim included with the PS4 racing wheel the newly announced and already sold out F1 Rim? If so, there’s still some hope for me.

    Ok than i wil wait and see if the dd1 wil release on 7 december. But its less than 2 weeks away you would think that they know by now if they can make it. Well if they delay it for another few week im fine with it, better a good tested product than a product that has some problems.
  • Hi Thomas, With all the sim racing titles out, and now that you are adding more button functions to your wheels, like the McLaren and new F1 can you add more programmable presets? Case point, in RaceRoom I have 2 presets for P2 a,d GT3 class cars, in Assetto Corsa Competizrione I have 1 preset for the larger Bentley/M6 and 1 for the Huracan. That leaves only 1 left that I have set for GT3 cars in AC. As each game has a different set of physic as well different set of car specific physics such as each car type having its own degrees of rotation, FF values and ideal brake pressure requirements that I setup differently each time I tune a cars for a series and it much easier to tune this on the fly/in game than it s to cone out of a practice session and change the in game values. Which I find most of the time it is best to tweak the wheel and leave the game settings status quo. it would be great to have more programmable presets options. Me personally I would love to see at least 5 more for a total of 10 if possible. This is not a rant or in any way a complaint, I am more that pleased with every product purchased from Fanatec as my purchasing history should reflect, but its just a wish I would like to see. Thanks once again for being the game changer for the hobby I am most passionate about.
  • This policy with limited items must stop immediately. All customers, like me, who had no way to buy this steering wheel are just disappointed. And when the first Youtuber introduces the steering wheel on Saturday, I feel really crazy. Your 2018 marketing strategy is tough on the edge and upset customers like me.

    WTF? Everyone had the same 12 to 24-hour window (or more) to jump in and buy the limited edition wheel – and more for the other stuff on offer, so why "must this stop immediately"? And why did you have "no way" to do the same? In reality, it's not everyone else's fault (or Fanatec's, for that matter) that you're unhappy, is it?

    And besides that, there's nothing that was on sale that you won't be able to buy at some point in the very near future. Even the new F1 wheel will be available, except the colour might not be quite the same and it might have a black face-plate rather than carbon fibre. Is that really a reason to stop everyone else from having a chance to buy it? Manufacturers of all sorts of things try to entice people to buy with 'limited edition' runs of things (just look at all the limited edition cars that get released these days)... and that isn't going to stop now, or any time soon!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this wheel will never be available again, meaning no other price after BF sale as that will be a different wheel, and not the limited edition.
  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but this wheel will never be available again, meaning no other price after BF sale as that will be a different wheel, and not the limited edition.

    No I think it'll just be the color way. They'll release it again with either a slightly different color. Or perhaps with xbox compatibility like the unit in the video. They didn't just make this version to sell a 1000 units of it.

  • Thomas, I have some questions about the f1 2018 wheel and podium. it was written ;ast year that podium rims would have upgraded quick release. the rim or the base has better QR ? could I change the QR on the f1 2018 limited to have the podium QR ?

    The clubsport QR supports both the DD1 and DD2 at full strength. While the F1 wheel is bundled with the CSL it is a clubsport wheel.
