    I had strange bug yesterday.
    When turning my wheelbase on at first everything was normal, then the fan kicked in and wheel started spinning full speed.
    Turning it off/on fixed it but it was strange

    Were you using a beta driver/firmware, and if so, which one?

    I will check and let you know.
    It has been a while since I updated. Everything worked fine so I left it as is.

    If I would guess there was something during the initial phase when the wheel centres. If I remember correctly it stopped upside down at first.

    Will check if there is an update.

    Nice... a little more than I'd like to spend, but still seems very nice.

    A comparable wheel for other systems like OSW/Simucube is around 1000 euro...

    Anyone here who can tell me the thickness of the fanatec R300 rim? I want to buy this rim but the only information is 30cm diameter.
    Im looking for a wheel with thick rim.

    The Podium R300 rim isn't very thick. I wouldn't call it skinny, but look elsewhere if you want a thick and chunky rim. The 300mm wheel from QSP is pretty thick, and quite well priced.

    To the peeps that have gotten their podium DD replaced, do you have to return everything for the warranty replacement?

    I’m asking because my PS4 DD1 just kicked the bucket with the power button issue, I’m waiting on fanatec to answer but God only knows when that will happen.

    In the case of the Podium Racing Wheel F1, if there is a wheel base issue, it's usually only the base that needs returning, but please clarify this with support.
