Imagine playing Trackmania in that!
Now that all those people know where the ‘1’ was on the old logo they can spend the next 25 years looking for the ‘F’ in the new one.

Must say I am really enjoying using CrewChief especially in sims that don't have a good working spotter & for offline AI racing.
It also offers many other great features & now the ability to add pace notes based of your own individual triggers.

Those universal hubs are too expensive, even when they throw in a rim. I'm glad I bought the older non-xbox version when they were still around.

I did a bunch of reading a few weeks back, seems to compare well to the Thrustmaster wheel but behind the better Clubsport V2.5
The downside if the PS4 version of this wheel has been upgraded slightly which I was holding off on hoping for a sale. But that is great value and ill likely buy it.

You can also pickup the Loadcell pedal at a later date to make a 3 pedal/better setup

The AUD price is 1.6x USD price, so should be ~$480 for wheel and pedal.. sweet

I bit the bullet as well, it was one of the wheel bases I has on my wishlist (the other was the TM TS-PC Racer) but this deal is too good to pass up. I must be close to their distribution warehouse as it was $407.70 for me.
I don't need the pedals so the plan is to sell them to help fund purchasing the McLaren GT3 wheel at a later date.
It'll replace my trusty G25 that is still going strong & I'll likely sell that as well.

Anyone looking for an brand new upgradable 2 pedal set hit me up via PM. ;)

Nice. I've been tempted. Feels a lot more natural to me with them up that way. Especially the brake.

Used to have the logi pedals inverted but the Fanatec V1's won't fit in my cockpit that way. I'll have to have a go at making a custom frame.

Nice Norbs.
Now that all those people know where the ‘1’ was on the old logo they can spend the next 25 years looking for the ‘F’ in the new one.
