Hi everyone, Let me kick this thread of by saying just a small thank you to everyone and I hope you will enjoy the read. Cheers, Christiaan "LogiForce" van Beilen Community Test Manager GTplanet.net LogiForce his ClubSport Wheel review I will update this post over the weekend with the review text and forum friendly pictures. However due to time constraints and me not wanting to let you wait longer. Here is the small sized PDF document, with as an appology a video I did about my brake damper mod. LogiForce's review PDF (size: 6.3 MB): Mirror 1: http://katsuraonline.com/logiforce/ClubSport Wheel Review.pdf Mirror 2: http://www.2shared.com/document/oyLJ-1zF/ClubSport_Wheel_Review.html edit: July 2 2012 @ 0:50: Fixed incorrect measurements of the base unit June 29 2012 @ 15:56: Fixed 2 typos on pages 29 and 39 Extra video: I modded the brake damper a bit. In this video I will tell and show you why I did it. Please note the comment section. I really use that progressive spring all the time. What it does is that the progressive part puts a heavier feel on the brake when you intially push it. Which is a must as the oil in the damper does not instantly compress. This way you get a nice steady increase in resistance, and really nice it a nice stiff brake with fluid dampening. Comment: What I wanted to say at the end. "So yeah, the original is 20mm and the new ones 25mm, but the quality and stiffness will definitely make a difference" Original: 83mm long, 20mm in diameter New normal: 100mm long, 25mm in diameter New progressive: 100mm long, 25mm in diameter, 6 windings for the progressive part of the spring. Mayaman his ClubSport Wheel review My quick review. Video to follow in the next couple of days with gameplay and other fun stuffs. https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B1NbLog3WxYLWmZsaEI3eU9WVGs Enjoy edit:FYI, all my pics are 16 megapixel. for some reason Google Docs compreses them to look like pics from the Civil War of 1865. Edit: Gameplay Video added... Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions. * Here is the build thread in case you want to see pics and build details of the rig. *tons of pics. https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?p=6108188#post6108188 Mikemav his ClubSport Wheel review Great review Logi! Here is my initial video review and accompanying post text from ISR forums, FYI: Here is my initial video review of the wheel, featuring pCARS gameplay. Will be adding videos (and probably a write-up too) later with more details on other games and features, as well as the ClubSport pedals V2. As you can see I did not have the v2 pedals hooked up yet in this video; was using the CSP v1's (which I've used continually for about 2 years or whenever they first came out.) Also note (per an email from Fanatec to the testers this week), improvements have been made after the beta hardware we have to the production line for incorporation into the final product. List of improvements made in the manufacturing process that will be a part of the final production wheels: Depth of holes on the base-side of the quick-release has been reduced. This eliminates any play on the quick-release mechanism because metal balls now have less play. Dimensions of the base-side part of the quick-release have been slightly reduced to make the rims slide on and off more easily. Layout of the PCBA inside the BMW M3 GT2 rim has been changed so that paddle shifter does not hit one of the elements if moved closer to the rim. A shorter cable is now being used to connect quick release pins to the main PCBA inside the CSW base. This solves the issue where the same cable would rub against the main PCBA and produce unwanted noises. A fixture has been added in production to eliminate any BMW badge alignment issues on the BMW M3 GT2 rim. Springs and switches inside paddle shifter mechanisms have been changed for higher reliability. Metal screw inserts are now used for shifter paddle attachment - increased reliability. Grease is now used for lubrication of paddle shifter mechanisms instead of oil. This prevents potential problems with squeaking. Belt drive is now better aligned and with optimized inner friction of the drive system. Sequence of LED shift lights on the BMW M3 GT2 rim has been changed to: YYY-RRR-BBB Brightness of LED shift lights has been increased on both rims. Type of Loctite on several screws has changed for easier disassembly. Position sensor mount has been changed for better stability. Due to problems with leaking in shipment, different bottles are now used for CSP V2 damper oil. TBHausen his ClubSport Wheel review mclaren777 his ClubSport Wheel review Is it okay for me to include my review in this thread? Overall, I thought the Fanatec hardware was fantastic. It added a whole new sense of realism that I haven't experienced with other wheel/pedal setups. It's as much of an improvement over the G27 as the G27 is over the DFGT. The problem is, it's four times the price of the G27, and for that reason alone, I can't recommend this to anybody but the most dedicated sim racers. Video Review Paskowitz his ClubSport Wheel review My review is up. I will post it here once I get the formatting figured out. It is still a bit a WIP but the meat of the review is done. Almost 8,000 words!
