Fanatec CSL Elite Wheel
« on: November 23, 2017, 07:45:33 PM »
Fanatec has the CSL Elite Wheel Starter Pack at 40% off this weekend. Works out to be $399.95 AUD normal price is $759.90. Even though I already have the Elite pedals it is still a good deal ie $399.95 versus $649.90 for the CSL Elite Racing Wheel. Only problem is the steering wheel is rubber. Fanatec has just announced an Alcantara version of this wheel which is $259.90 version $149.95 for the rubber one.

I'm in a should I / shouldn't I loop on the CSL Elite wheel!!!

ONLY $400

It's a good deal and the wheel base performance is far better than my current G27.

That was the one standout deal for me. Great price. Comes with the pedals that you already have though? Albeit the 2 pedal version.

EDIT: Should have actually read your post that you already have the pedals... and yeah it's a cheaper rim but that can always be updated at a later date.

It WAS a good deal. The Fanatec site imploded and when I did get in that deal was gone. From online comments the site got hammered as soon as the sale went live at 9am CET (7pm here).

Seems like its still having issues and comments all over facebook are people complaining. Maybe they'll extend it or something.

Ended up working ok if slowly.

Also, they have announced a McLaren GT3 wheel for the Elite at $260 so that might go nicely with the basic wheel that comes with the CSL Elite starter kit.

That does look pretty cool. I have the formula black rim but it's a tad more expensive. Looks like that one has rubber grips, but the rotary switches on the wheel are nice.

Yep. Got in after a while. I now have a G27  plus a set of CSL Elite pedals to offload.

The wheel has arrived. VERY quick delivery. All installed and working for the most part. However, there is one problem. The wheel randomly changes gears all by itself - both upshifts and downshifts. Seems to be after the wheel base heats up. It only happens occasionally but if it is a sudden downshift then the result can be catastrophic. I've raised a ticket with Fanatec but I was wondering if anyone else her has experienced similar problems. I've tested with other sims and it is only happening with Assetto Corsa.

Sounds odd. I've had the same base for nearly 12 months and never had anything like that.
