Don't buy fanatec products... i had the speedster 2 and the shift paddles broke after 1 week. Very poor quality.  Undecided

I beta tested the Fanatec Porsche wheel. Although the wheel itself has nice FFB, good rotation and smoothness, and lots of buttons, it has a centering problem (slightly off centre, maybe one or two degrees),  which should be fixed in the public release, the pedals are totally crap (should be redesigned for the public release), and the shifter was complete rubbish (should be redesigned for the public release).

I still have the prototype here but I probably won't use it. The G25 is still probably the better wheel, even despite the changes and fixes to the Fanatec product.

Fanatec did a good job on the wheel, but seemed to not understand the needs of sim racers. One gets the feeling that they can't take their eye of the console market long enough to realise their products shortcomings for real sim racing. Still, I think they may create a superior wheel to Logitech someday in the not too distant future.

* If anyone in Australia would like to buy the prototype wheel from me, please let me know. You can have it at a very good price.
