Fanatec CSL Elite + Wheelbase Review - Sony Showing The Love With PS4 Support

By / Racing Sim Equipment Reviews / Sunday, 26 August 2018 01:05

Users of Sony PS4 systems have been neglected for some time when it comes to support for Fanatec Wheelbases until now.  With the newly released Fanatec CSL Elite+ Wheelbase comparability with Sony PS4 Consoles can be achieved which will give users much more choice when it comes to choosing their sim racing peripherals with Logitech and Thrustmaster being their only choice when it comes to sim racing products.

Review Of The Fanatec CSL Elite+ Wheelbase

The Fanatec CSL Elite+ wheelbase features advanced and proven ClubSport technology. The servo motor, electronics, and power supply which come from the clubsport 2.5 wheelbase.

The powerful brushless servo motor combined with the single belt drive delivers very detailed and accurate force feedback.

The way the wheel has been designed creates minimal friction and ultra-low cogging for an impressive away of force feedback. You can also fine-tune the behavior of the mechanics with the Fanatec tuning menu.

The DirectSensor is mounted directly on the steering axis to keep the steering input precise. This helps to eliminate any outside influence or disturbance on the belt drive system.
