Fanatec has done it again with their NEW Fanatec Clubsport V2.5 wheelbase! But how did they improve on the best bang for your dollar wheelbase on the market? Lets take a look.
The ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5 is a careful and precise evolution of the highly successful V2. It comes with more advanced electronics and a new motor for improved feeling, functionality and even higher durability. With the updated electronics we get double the USB Update Rate at 1000 Hz from the previous 500 hz which should speed up reaction time I believe and 2nd advanced drift mode. Advanced Drift Mode can now add a natural damper to avoid oscillation or a negative damper which will speed up the wheel.
To distinguish the difference between previous Fanatec clubsport bases you will notice a new stylized racer branding of Fanatec. It makes it look distinguished, retro and like it has racing lines all at the same time IMO. The case still keeps the top tented plexi-glass from the Fanatec Clubsport V2 version which is nice and the surrounding areas’s of the casing seem to remain the same as before. So if you have a previous Fanatec wheel base this one will bolt up in it’s place easily.
Caring over with Fanatec compatibility by using a XBOX rim to work on the XBOX One we get the same functionality as before. Just add your XBOX rim and have fun with console racing like Forza Motorsports. I would like to note that this wheel base is not compatible with Playstation sadly, but this has to do more with Sony then Fanatec.
If you preordered a V2 your order will now be converted to the V2.5 Automatically.
All V2 pre-orders will be delivered as V2.5 automatically.
Pricewill remain the same as V2: €549,95 / $499.95 / AU$829.90 /JPY 64.900
