Subject CSW V2.5 and CSL Elite Base PS4 (new) drift mode explained in detail
Description

Here is a small explanation what has been changed to the Drift Mode of the new ClubSport Wheel Base 2.5 / CSL E WB (PS4 version) and which new feature is "hidden" there:

 

CSW V2 / CSL E WB

CSW V2.5 / CSL E WB PS4

Notes

Standard electric motor damper

DRI OFF

DRI -5

Best for most games/simulations. Feels identical on both wheel bases

Reduced electric motor damper

n.a.

DRI -4 -> DRI -1 (new!)

Can eventually cause problems (oscillations in games which do NOT  support “low drag” wheels)

Electric motor damper turned off

n.a

DRI OFF (new!)

WILL cause problems (oscillations) in games which do NOT support “low drag” (like DD) wheels

“Classic” Fanatec Drift Mode

DRI 1-5

DRI 1-5

Will speed up/accelerate your wheel movements and reduce the dampening – just like power steering

DRI OFF now has NO dampening at all. Works similar to a direct drive wheel which has no mechanical resistance. If there is no FFB effect there will be no force/dampening from the motor and electronics in the wheel. That can cause problems in games if they are not optimized. DRI -5 is the safe setting now (for the CSW V2.5) as it was “OFF” in the CSW V2.

Differences to the CSW V2 / CSL E WB:
At the time the CSW V2 (and original CSL Elite Wheel Base) was developed it was not possible to create a dynamic/variable motor damper into the motor driver. To develop this features we had to design a completely new motor  electronics which is driven by a logical processor and has its own firmware which is programmable/updateable. Since the combination of having NO electronic damper and hardly any mechanical dampening in the (v-belt drive) system causes problems, like wheel oscillations on straights, in most games, using this static electrical damper in the CSW V2 was a MUST. The drift mode helps to keep the effect of this damper as minimal as possible. DRI3 should be a good compromise in most games for the CSW V2 to make the wheel turn easy and freely.

IF oscillations are happening within any game...reduce the DRI value to -5 (CSW V2.5) or to OFF (CSW V2) again.
