That's awesome pricing too.
Might jump into it for the F1 racing.
Yup the price is great especially considering the inclusion of magnetic paddle shifters and the width is good not only for formula racing but also GT from what I've seen in reviews. Owners of the previous version wheel spoke highly of theirs so this should be an improved plus.Cant beat the price. And it comes with magnetic shifters!
The Formula Carbon would be the closest competition but its $100 more. Which in all honesty pays for the quick release it comes with. But it does not have magnetic shifters.
And i don't like 270mm wheels, my shoulders are too broad and my arms would be pointing inwards too much. 300mm is a good width for my frame.

I was considering previously if I were to get a formula type wheel it would have purchased the Clubsport Formula V2 as as said that doesn't come with magnetic paddles so this wheel seems to be more prudent. I would actually consider this if I wanted to get this style of wheel.
The QR is important if you have a DD wheel, otherwise the max torque is limited.
When I bought my rig I was initially going for the McLaren GT3 V1, but it had already been discontinued by the time I was ready to order.I was considering previously if I were to get a formula type wheel it would have purchased the Clubsport Formula V2 as as said that doesn't come with magnetic paddles so this wheel seems to be more prudent.
If you watch a review for this V2 wheel from a youtuber called Boosted Media, this is exactly what he mentions in his video. Without the QR there is some flex where the new simplified quickrelease is attached to the actual rim. But on the other hand, with the (metal) QR there is no flex where the QR is attached to the rim but then there is some flex at the shaft that comes out of the wheelbase. The amount of flex looks similar to each other, and apparently isn't noticeable when you're actually driving/racing with the gear. He claims that all Fanatec wheels have some flex and it never bothered him. But of course you have to make up your own mind when you get to use the wheel for yourself. Hope this helps.Ordered one of these. Have been wanting the McLaren wheel for a long time now, but the v1 went out of stock way before I tried to get one.
Only concern I've seen so far is flex in the coupling. The ClubSport quick release looks to remove that entirely. Unfortunately it was sold out before I got my order in. A lot of people must've been thinking the same as me.
Mines arrived today...
I did see boosted medias video and thought there looked a lot of flex.. however as it arrived I quickly got it out the box, updated the firmware and tried it out.
It was only just that I remembered the flex in the video and tbh can't say I noticed any in normal use just
Good to hear. Keep us updated.
Just had a couple of lobby races.
Surprisingly took a while to get used to the wheel but up to speed now.
Left thumb keeps going to the wrong place for the stick but will soon get used to that.
Again no noticeable play. If I sit there I can physically move it about and see play dont get me wrong but on a CSL elite I don't feel any play during a race.
Just wish GT would support the rotary switches but other than that I'm happy
How are the magnetic shifters?
Mine is due today, but it snowed. FedEx will probably delay it. Which I always expect.
Awesome and sad at the same time SGA.
