Can Thrustmaster wheel work on Fanatec?

Will Fanatec wheels work with the CSL?

Older games that still support Fanatec wheels may support the CSL (through the CSW v2 profile), but since it’s a new wheel base the support may not be perfect. I’ve tried a TS-PC racer and a Bodnar wheel (yes, you read it correctly) and I must say the 2.5 feels almost like a DD.

Does the Fanatec V1 have steering play issues?

Steering play that some folks experienced with the V1 has been addressed – according to Fanatec they have tightened up tolerances on the mating parts and as you can see in the photos, they have added an o-ring to the steering QR mount to take up/dampen any remaining play.

Is Fanatec working on a DD wheel?

Emad I believe its something of an open secret that Thomas has already confirmed that Fanatec are working on a DD wheel. It would make no sense for it to compete with a Bodnar, the market is crying out for a DD wheel that can slide into the entry level/Accufore price-band.

Do Fanatec wheels make your muscles hurt?

Only the power is a bit lower, but it is still an amazing piece of art. Both wheels, the bodnar and V2.5n do make my muscles hurt; which is good, cause I need no gym anymore. So I can’t wait for a 3.0 or a DD from Fanatec. So it can be a concurrent to Accuforce.
