  • Very fast steering wheel acceleration - ideal for drifting
  • 1080° of rotation which can be adjusted in the tuning menu of the attached Steering Wheel
  • Integrated rev light bar in the Wheel Base
  • Choose from a growing selection of very realistic Steering Wheels in many different styles
  • Quick Release system to allow the easy exchange of Steering Wheels within seconds, also during gameplay
  • Supports vibration motors in the steering wheel (depending on the steering wheel model)
  • Mount for ClubSport Static Shifter Paddles and other optional accessories

  • Adjust force feedback strength during game play
  • Adjustment for vibration intensity in the steering wheel (depending on the steering wheel model). The vibration motors can be used by a game directly or by the ABS function
  • Simulate ABS vibration in the steering wheel (depending on the steering wheel model) and on pedals with rumble motor like the ClubSport Pedals V3 by setting a starting point at % of brake input
  • Change the linearity in the steering axis to get the precision of a 1080° wheel and the fast movement of a 270° wheel
  • Add some artificial dead zone to avoid shaking on straights if needed
  • Use the drift mode to reduce the overall resistance of the wheel and let it turn more easily, almost like adjustable power steering
  • Customize the force feedback sensations by changing the spring, force effects and dampening forces

Fanatec compatibility to Logitech and Thrustmaster hardware

We are often asked if you can use Thrustmaster or Logitech wheels, pedals, shifters or other accessories in combination with Fanatec hardware. In general the devices of different vendors are not compatible to each other. Therefore, you cannot directly connect products from different companies to each other or at least this is not supported.

In former times there have been adapters which might have worked to make such combinations possible but those solutions have not been reliable due to different techniques used in the hardware and different signal tolerances even if similar specs have been used. Fanatec cannot make any statements about third party adapters or similar solutions. We are putting a lot of effort into the goal of having the highest possible intercompatibility in between all our devices, which is not that easy to achieve. For any questions about compatibility we can only direct you to the information given on our product pages or within our FAQs.

 

The statement above is valid for every platform (especially on consoles!) EXCEPT PC...since you can connect multiple, individual USB devices there IF the game/simulation supports that.
This gives you multiple options to combine hardware of different vendors the way you want. Most simulation games on Windows PCs will allow you to use combinations like: Logitech wheel, Thrustmaster shifter and Fanatec pedals for example. Since Fanatec provides USB solutions for more or less every kind of hardware (shifter/handbrake by USB adapter, USB pedals, USB wheels, etc.) the possibilities to build your perfect setup are endless. 

Even if it is very common, please be so kind to make some research on the web or ask the simulation developer if multiple USB devices are supported.

Which driver version should I choose (32 or 64 bit)? WelcheTreiber Version soll ich auswählen (32 oder 64 bit)?

There is a 32 bit and a 64 bit version of a Fanatec driver available. It depends on the "system type" of your PC which of those versions you need to choose. If the system type of your PC has a 32 bit operation system, you need the 32 bit version of the driver. If the system type of your PC has the 64 bit operation system, you will need the 64 bit version.

For finding this information go to the "Control Panel" of your PC -> "System and Security" -> System:

Es gibt eine 32 bit und eine 64 bit Version des Fanatec Treibers. Welche Treiber Version ausgewählt werden muss, hängt von dem jeweiligen "System Typ" des PC´s ab. Wenn Ihr PC ein 32 bit Betriessystem hat, benötigen Sie die 32 bit Version, wenn es ein 64 bit Betriebssystem ist, benötigen Sie die 64 bit Version.

Sie finden diese Information unter "Systemsteuerung" -> "System und Sicherheit" -> "System":

CSL Elite Wheel Base (CSL E WB) force feedback sounds

When using the CSL Elite Wheel base it is possible that the strong motor generates clearly audible force feedback sounds, especially when the game sends beefy and sometimes violent force feedback effects when you are going over curbs or off track. The CSL E WB has an exceptionally strong force feedback motor which generates torques up to 6Nm which is ~40% stronger than average force feedback wheels made from synthetic material. Additionally the "single drive" system has been designed to directly deliver all forces straight to the steering wheel and to your hands which will lead to a higher sound level. A heavy metal unit as the CSW V2 can absorb such violent forces easier but unsurprisingly this comes at a higher cost.

My firmware is up to date and I cannot reflash it Mon firmware est à jour et je ne peux pas le reflasher Mi firmware está actualizado y no puedo “reflashearlo” Il mio firmware è aggiornato e non posso aggiornarlo Meine Firmware ist auf dem neuesten Stand und ich kann diese nicht erneut flashen

With the new firmware manager, the ‘’Update’’ button will remain grey and not available in case you are having the latest firmware installed on your devices. This of course doesn’t mean that you are still not able to reflash/reinstall the firmware again. To make the option become available again, press the Manual Firmware Update button in the top right corner of the Firmware Manager window:  

 

 

 

This will unlock the firmware update option for each device. You can then proceed and perform the firmware update/reflash on the device you wish:  

 

Remarque : suivez les instructions ci-dessous uniquement lorsque vous êtes sûr à 100 % que la version du pilote PC est compatible avec vos produits Fanatec connectés. La dernière version du pilote PC est toujours disponible sur https://fanatec.com/driver .

Avec le nouveau gestionnaire de firmware, le bouton « Update » restera gris et non disponible au cas où vous auriez le dernier firmware installé sur vos appareils. Cela ne signifie bien sûr pas que vous ne pouvez toujours pas reflasher/réinstaller le firmware à nouveau. Pour que l'option redevienne disponible, appuyez sur le bouton Manual Firmware Update dans le coin supérieur droit de la fenêtre Firmware Manager :


Cela débloquera l'option de mise à jour du Firmware pour chaque appareil. Vous pouvez ensuite procéder et effectuer la mise à jour/reflashage du firmware sur l'appareil de votre choix :


Con el nuevo administrador de firmware (firmware updater), el botón de actualización (“Update”)  permanecerá en gris y no estará disponible en caso de que tenga el firmware más reciente instalado en sus dispositivos. Esto por supuesto no significa que no pueda reflashear o reinstalar el firmware de nuevo. Para activar la opción una vez más, seleccione la opción de actualización manual del firmware (Manual Firmware Update) ubicada en la esquina superior derecha en la ventana del administrador de firmware. 



Esto permitirá la opción de actualización de firmware para cada dispositivo. Entonces puede continuar y realizar la actualización de firmware o bien “reflashear” el dispositivo que desee. 


Con il nuovo gestore del firmware, il pulsante "Aggiorna" rimarrà grigio e non disponibile nel caso in cui sui dispositivi sia installato il firmware più recente. Questo, ovviamente, non significa che non sei ancora in grado di eseguire nuovamente il reflash/reinstallare il firmware. Per rendere nuovamente disponibile l'opzione, premere il pulsante Aggiornamento manuale firmware nell'angolo in alto a destra della finestra Firmware Manager:
