Sim Racing Review – Fanatec CSR Elite
Doug Meyer has met the increasing demands of the community by providing a video review for the Fanatec “Forza Motorsport” CSR Elite. Meyer claims that this wheel will make a big difference in overall racing performance and realism, while also claiming that the wheel is certainly worth the price tag considering how well constructed it is. He reiterate this emphasis by saying that “It really is THAT good” despite the high price. Meyer promises to offer viewers a future video that features a side by side comparison of all all major Fanatec products in the CSR Elite, CSR, and GT2 series of wheels.
