Fanatec Clubsport Wheelbase V2.5 Review

The Fanatec Clubsport Wheelbase V2.5 is the third generation wheelbase from Fanatec.  Fanatec are an industry leader in design and manafacture of race sim equipment in the intermediate price range.  Like other wheelbases the CSW 2.5 allows the attachment of different wheel rims that can add to the immersion factor when sim racing.  All of the rims are backwards compatible with the clubsport wheelbase so you won't need to purchase new rims, also with the universal hub adapter you can fit many aftermarket real world race rims to the clubsport wheelbase for that extra immersion factor.

Features Of The Fanatec CSW V2.5

  • Interchangeable steering wheels.  The quick release system allows for qucik changeover of wheel rims, which can be changed on the fly while playing your favorite racing game
  • Double hall sensor technology on the steering and motor give the wheelbase a more accurate input which allows for smoother driving
  • Belt driven wheel, while not as good as the more expensive direct drive wheels due to the clubsports dual belt design it feels pretty close to a direct drive wheel
  • Brushless servo motor provides smooth inputs without deadzone

Final Words On The Fanatec Clubsport Wheelbase V2.5

This Fanatec Clubsport Wheelbase V2.5 review is another strong showing from Fanatec,  if you are looking for something better than the offerings from Logitech and Thrustmaster you can not go wrong with Fanatec, if you have the budget as the wheelbase does not come cheap.  At the time of writing the Fanatec Clubsport Wheelbase will set you back 666USD and you need to buy a rim for it as well and they start around 200USD range.  With the updated electronics and motor this wheelbase is a great entry point for new racers looking at the Fanatec range but if you all ready own a clubsport wheelbase I don't feel that there is any need to upgrade to this unit.  It is also worth noting that there are rumors that Fanatec could be releasing a direct drive wheelbase in the near future which could be worth the wait.  If you would like more information about the Fanatec CSW 2.5 please visit the Fanatec website.
