Sim-racing accessory manufacturer Fanatec has just announced a new version of their “ClubSport Pedals”, a popular upgrade used by many GTPlanet members.
Although still sporting the same general design as earlier generations, the V3 pedals bring some fairly significant upgrades over the V2. Notably, the V3 includes a heavy-duty load cell on the brake, rated up to 90kg. The brake pedal is also adjustable, and now both the gas and brake pedal include a small vibration motor to bring some novel sensations to the sim-racing experience.
The full list of upgrades includes:
The ClubSport V3s are available for pre-order from Fanatec’s website for €359.99 / $299.95 USD, and the hydraulic damper kit is available for €79.95 / $69.95 USD. Fanatec has announced that customers waiting for their ClubSport V2 pedal orders will be automatically upgraded to the V3 hardware at no additional charge. They’re estimated launch date is August 31, 2015.
