    Fanatec Facebook group. I also bought a SA shifter and brake performance kit last night with a ten percent off code. Merry Xmas to me.

    If you change your mind on the preorder don't cancel without giving me a chance to take your preorder please mate. I wish I'd ordered one now. The extra wheel is a hell of an incentive imo.

    there is an update that those that got the LE F1 2018 recently can get a credit on that for another wheel...

    I'd be interested in this option when I hear more about the Porsche GT3 wheel :inlove:

    That's such crap - we pay the whole cost upfront and then they delay it for another 4-5 months - not good enough.
    I wonder if the global competition winners will still be getting their new rims ?!?

    Yea its disappointing for sure, thats part of the risk of preordering though. I've never found Fanatecs "Estimated Shipping Date" to be terribly reliable either. I ordered the CSL McLaren rim earlier this year, Pretty sure the estimated shipping date was August and it turned up in June. Something else was 3 months late (cant remember what that was though) We’re just gonna have to deal with it. Its gotta suck for anyone whos gotten rid of older gear in anticipation for this though.
    First time I've seen that. Looks very nice indeed. The Clubsport line is already pretty good quality so that thing should be awesome.

    ROFL pass. I know it'll be a great wheel but what's the point on PS4?

    Anyone else excited about the new Formula wheel?? I was semi interested in the Esports wheel but I've been won over by the new ones!
    I'm looking at getting another rim and now I have to scratch my head (or ass) and have a think about it!
    Which would you get?

    Formula V2:

    Clubsport steering wheel F1: (same price as above, just no Xbox chip and different colour)

    I have sent an email to Fanatec and asked if the Blue Podium wheel will become available as a standalone wheel. At the moment it is only able to be preordered with the DD bundle unit - I would def get the Blue unit as a first choice, otherwise I will stick with the LE unt I have ordered.

    "blue"bounty I think your biased towards the blue colour of the rim..... :laugh:
    But seriously do you like the colour better on the blue one and not the red?

    I had the little girl from the tacos commercial in my head saying "why not do both?"
    haha seriously though:
    - To try out the esports rim and give a review on it. Plus I want that to be my F1 game rim.
    - Maybe later on get the Formula V2 rim and compare the two as they are very different.
    - To compare the esports rim to the McLaren GT3 as they are the same price and again do a video of which you should buy. Plus I plan on playing a lot of the new Assetto Corsa and I can use this rim for any Pcars racing we do (hoping it somewhat matches the LMP's of the new RTEC series lol, if we choose that class).
    I know my video reviews don't warrant me spending that amount of money but you gotta do something right?
