The NEW Blog

edited April 5 in Blog
Welcome to our NEW BLOG and community page on Fanatec.com

This blog will replace the current blog at www.911wheel.com. After the blog has been implemented succesfully we will also start a forum here and much more.

There are plenty of reasons for this new community and here are the most important:
  • You can use your existing webshop log in info
  • More powerful forum and blog functions and tools
  • All content under our main domain

It has been a bit silent in the past months but we were working on a lot of things and here is the place you will find all the new info.


I hope you like it!

Thomas

  • Habe mich schon gewundert, warum es so leise auf dem 911wheel Blog geworden ist.

    Hoffe es gibt bald Infos über das neue Clubsport Rim. :)

    Thanks Thomas, now can you get your customer service to give me a replacement part that I have been asking for going on a week now and the only response is asking me to make a video with a camera I dont have.  
  • Great to see this up and running. I know you've been hard at work Thomas and team.
  • I hope the "Fanatec is going out of business" posts will stop now.
  • Fantastic to see this site up and running.
  • Hi Thomas. Desperately hope you have something in the pipeline for XB1 because the opposition are falling down pretty badly. Oh, and congratulations on the new blogspace!

  • Nice to be here :)
    Really looking forward to news about new CSW rims very soon :)
  • Hope to see some news for Xbox One and Forza 5 from Fanatec.

    Ah cool new Blog here, welcome back Thomas! :)

    One suggestion: On the old Blog the user could be logged in several weeks without re-logging in every time. On this new Blog I have to login every time I left the Blog. Could your IT-Team add the function to stay logged in, please? :)
    Und ein hochgeladenes Profilbild wird aktuell nicht gespeichert beim Logout..

    Customer Service likely to improve any time soon ? Im having software problems, in the wheel setup menu it wont detect the Accel, brake and clutch even though i have the ps/2 connected to the base unit. Is there anyway i can fix this or does anybody here know how ? Any help would be greatly appreciated as i cant seem to find any answer in FAQ. Thankyou for a fantastic product !!

    Good to see the new blog Thomas Could you change the crazy policy of Support asking me to do everything that I use to do when under warranty to BUY a part OUT of warranty, like making a video and jumping through all the hoops?

    All my stuff is out of warranty, and would simply like to pay you hard earned $$ for a part I need, w/o answering questions and making videos.

    No company I have ever dealt with makes getting a part out of warranty so difficult....Please. The Elite wheel and CSP's are not disposable at close to $900. Thank you.
  • Cool although I was hoping for a bit more of an update than we have opened the community section.
  • Love the change! :)>-
  • Freut mich, dass es auch hier Fortschritte gibt.

    Signs of life from Fanatec must be a good thing !

    Great to see the new blog is up and running !

    Now we want to know all about the new rim !
  • I guess release of the handbrake should be close since it's mentioned in a couple of places on the website.

    Info about that would be appreciated.
  • Love it Thomas! Glad to see it going now.

    Hey Roger good to see you. Can't wait for my F1 rim!

    I know you're frustrated with CS but one thing to remember is that not everyone has your tech know how and can diagnose a problem correctly. They are probably just making sure you get what you need and only what you need to get running. Thus saving you time and money. Just my guess.
  • congratulations to the new blog I just hope there are news on xbox one flying! 1io I my fanatec csr elite still can't play on xbox one to forzamotorsport5
  • Congrats on the New web site... looks Good.
  • Great forum, hope we will get info soon, like new xbox one wheel and pedals in stock on april 10!!!!  :(( :-O hahaha
  • Looking good, Congrats all ;)
  • Great to hear some news of fanatec !

    Could we expect some firmwares updates for csr wheels, or any news on future ps4 or xbox one compatibility ?
  • Please work on your north american customer service it's so slow. I waited 4 1/2 just to get my replacement motors for my csw and upon installing them,  when I removed the back off the base saw that the pcb board was fried  and now I have been waiting a month 1/2 and still no reply. Ive had the csw setup now for a little over a year now and 7 of those months it was unusable, broken and waiting on warranties. 
  • Look forward to seeing what this community becomes now it's part of the actual Fanatec Website.

    On a Side note I just Pre-ordered some Clubsport V2 Pedals 
    :D
  • Would finally like to see new firmwares for CSW, last one is already quite old. Especially steering centre feel in iRacing need improvements.

    To be fair, that is a pretty standard request from wheel manufacturers in order to validate or diagnose issues.
    Perhaps you could borrow a digital camera/mobile phone in order to send the video to support?
  • Been having fun getting my CSR + Clubsport pedals to work with Forza 5. Still a little tinkering to be had, but a fun experience already :)

  • Can I know when the forum will be active?
    I ask that because I've made a post but I can't make a new discution thread
    :-h
  • Hi all, my loved CSR Elite with formula wheel just developed a fault. At first when turning it on it used not to turn from left to right quickly and now it just doest seem to want to turn and thus not even initializing. Sent Fanatec a video. Hope I get my wheel running again :/

    Note: if I may, For those ppl that seem to have an issue with pedals. I myself use modified g25 (incl. Loadcell) pedals with a dedicated usb cable u can find. Its inbuilt filter helped the pedals act d way it should being non fanatec. And it also increased the resolution 4X.

  • Hi, Thanks for linking the blog here to the Fanatec website, where it belongs. I can't wait for the forums to start so we/you can create a database with info, tips and help for people who are new to Fanatec products or have problems with their product.
