The Podium line is the best ever made from Fanatec - so, no matter how you see them - it is logical that they try to do their best. Don`t forget also the F1 offical contract, so not only customers satisfaction is on the line. Their plans are heavily messed with that hardware problem! I know, I know you think another Fanaboy...I am not, just when you are involved in some similar production, you know how many things can mess and change in no time... the difference between FeelVR and Fanatec is prety big. Those of you that saw themselves playing with DD1/DD2 in the holiday season maybe are dissapointed, but the compensation is more than good! And those of you that dont have preorder - well thats your chance to offend Fanatec again! Guys, time will fly to april and you will have your Podium bases on your rigs! Lucky you I will say! Cheers!
