Fanatec CSL Elite
So for this review I am testing a CSL Elite base a, BMW wheel, V3 pedals.
For almost 15 years I raced with a Logitech G27 wheel and pedal setup, at the time it was the go to setup for a very reasonable price.
1 day for no reason the wheel goes hard left, and stayed that way...she was dead....
Enter fanatec, my good friend Scott ford had a fanatec club sport for about 5 or 6 years and really loved it, so i knew this was the direction I wanted to go.
So I ordered the above, and went 1 step down from the club sport base and opted for the CSL Elite unit.
The base was easy to mount to my new Next level rig, and I could not belie the weight of the BMW wheel, you could tell instantly this was no toy!
Out of the box, the force feedback was way to strong, I dropped it from 100 to 55, it was perfect for me.
The steering was so smooth and easy to hold a line in corners, I was really happy. I was now able to save the car in a slide like never before, it was amazing!!!
The V3 pedals were smooth and precise, the brakes were so accurate and consistent, i was getting faster and faster~~~
I can highly recommend this setup, Only happiness and fast lap times will occur.
