Today Fanatec announced the immediate availability of the ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5.  Some months ago I reviewed the original ClubSport V2 and I was highly impressed by its overall quality, build, feedback, and accuracy.  It is a monstrous unit that commanded an sizeable price.  Fanatec has built evolved and improved the V2 unit and rebranded it the V2.5.
 
While the V2.5 is not redesigned from the ground up, it has some greatly improved features from the last gen.  It has a new motor that promises better response and feedback force and feel.  They next updated the USB connection so that it has an update rate of 1000 Hz for greater driving accuracy and response time.

Perhaps the most impressive news about this release is the lowering of the price for the V2.5 base.  Fanatec claims that greater demand and efficiency in production has allowed them to lower the price of the new base vs. the old.  The new price is $499.95 which is quite a bit lower than the old price which I believe was in the $650 range.  Anyone that has pre-ordered the V2 units will be getting upgraded to the V2.5 parts.  I am unsure how Fanatec is handling possible refunds in these cases, but the assumption is that end users won't be ripped off.
 
This is a welcome surprise in terms of improvements and a lowering of price.  The V2 was a pretty spectacular part and it looks as though this one exceeds it in every way.  It still retains the all metal construction and features a new faceplate with the Fanatec logo etched in.  Certainly a lovely piece of gear for those that take racing seriously.

You can purchase it online from the Fanatec site!

ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5

Landshut, Germany – 02.03.2017 – Fanatec today introduced a new product of the rock-solid ClubSport Series, a facelift for their signature product.
 

The ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5 is a careful and precise evolution of the highly successful V2. While utilizing most of the proven technology of it's predecessor, the V2.5 also comes with​​ more advanced electronics and a new motor for improved feeling, functionality and even higher durability.

Due to the strong demand and high volumes we also managed to significantly lower the price of this wheel base.

The electronics now feature a faster USB update rate of 1000 Hz and allow for firmware updates of the new motor driver. The tuning menu features have been improved, now featuring an advanced drift mode, which can now add a natural damper to avoid oscillation or a negative damper which will speed up the wheel while turning. The front plate of the CS WB V2.5 comes in a new finish, displaying the Fanatec logo.

All ClubSport Wheel Base V2 pre-orders will be delivered as V2.5 automatically.

I bought this V2.5 a month ago exactly it would not accept wheel calibration and wheel kept blinking red and would not switch off after the proper driver firmware was installed.
After service said it has a dead flash,sent wheel base to get a new flash and was told it is posted back,should arrive today or tomorrow.
I asked for a new wheel but it fell on dead ears my joy turned into
despair for one month still have not been able to enjoy it.
PS it was missing 2 cables that run it and the delay to get them stalled things.I spent heaps with this company.I suspected it was a demo Wheel for the serial number was not showing on the underside of the heel + the 2 cables missing.Not happy at all.
