I imagine the shifter would be awesome for Forza and GT, just dip the clutch and drop straight from 5th to 2nd after braking hard of a corner.

You can't do that though - you have to heel and toe down through the gears or you lose a load of engine braking and you'll upset the car when you re-engage the clutch in second. It's really bloody hard to do - I can't :wacko:

Edit - like this:

Ok I have a question regarding the CSR, does it come with any kind of table clamp?

Should do - the clamp is an integral part of the wheel unit itself. You have to remove the clamp section to fix it to a stand.

Edit - I've just checked and the wheel does come with the clamp.

One thing I'm also wondering, and Meerman you're gonna have a fucking conniption with this, but what I'm wondering is if I can screw the wheel to the base of the MS wheel to allow me to put it on my lap.

Stay back, Meerman! I have ninja skillz!! :ph34r:

No chance - you'd end up with a big bit of plastic sticking out underneath the lap rest which would make it impossible to have it on your lap. The force feedback is also way too strong on a fanatec wheel, it really is a huge step up from the strength of the MS wheel.

You really need a stand if you're going to use it away from a desk, so a WSP or RennSport all the way I'm afraid. A stand will also secure your pedals properly, very important if you have a load sensor pedal.

It does come with a clamp, it's much more compact than the MSwheels clamp with nothing sticking out where your knees are.

I've read complaints about it not being good but mines absolutely rock solid and won't move even if i try to force it.

Dial only, however the abs setting on wheel is linked to the braking - I say that, does the CSR-e have the abs vibrate on the pedal!

Yes it does. And I turned the dial all the way to maximum and that seems to have sorted it. It didn't brake very well unless I applied a fuckload of pressure.

What a piece of kit, man. Using the pedals all in conjunction is tricky as hell. :ph34r:

It really is awesome, the force feedback is tremendous. I only ever used a wheel with the PS1 and decided they were crap. However this has changed my mind and I don't think I will ever play another racing game without a wheel.

Try taking the Pugeout out on this weeks Forza time trial. I did it last night :wub: you can literally throw out around corners an it feels amazing on the wheel! Driing a real car straight after felt wierd though :P

People using full manual clutch are just using it for the hardcore fun of the thing (which is the only reason I ever switch it on, as it makes things fricking hard I can tell you).

Not really. Just gives you one more thing to do.

To be fair i think he's using the foot clutch and flappy paddles which is a bit weird, much easier with the H-pattern shifter.

My CSR won't save any settings, anyone else having this problem?

Apart from that it's pretty awesome.

What you guys with the CSR-e/CSP pedals have to get your heads round is that its not about pushing the pedals to the base to get full braking its all about how hard you press the pedal, takes a while to adjust when used to stomping on normal pedals but so rewarding when you get used to it!

Yep, same saving problem here. Have to set them each time I boot the wheel. Annoying to say the least... What's the point in 5 "presets" of they don't save.

I know, but while it's daunting, I'm loving it. I'm fucking slow in online races though. I need to spend more time setting the wheel up.

Yes it feels weird, very weird. So weird in fact that I'm pondering buying a shifter set for a mere €60 pretty soonish.

No problem with saving my presets here, mind. There's a driver on the Fanny site but I'm not sure if that's installed to the wheel or just the PC, nor if it solves the problem or not.

Yep, I'm already used to that. I just need to do some DIY on that wooden table thingy that I clamped my wheel onto. Gonna do that tomorrow morning.
