    Hi all, I've been searching the internet and I can't find anything definitive, so does anyone know when the fanatec black Friday deals are on, I'm thinking of upgrading from my Thrustmaster t300rs and t3pa pro pedals to the csl elite wheel for pc and ps4 and the csl elite pedals with load cell. :)

    If they are coming it will start next Friday and the entire website will go down again for days as it gets slammed. I'm guessing they will make it one week long from the off rather than one day but I'll be shocked if the website doesn't die under the load come Friday!

    It will get announced on their Facebook page so just check there from time to time.

    Thanks m8, I'll keep a close eye on the FB page, just as a matter of interest do they usually offer big savings, is it worth my while waiting or should I just pull the trigger now (I'm not the most patient guy :))

    Definitely worth waiting, it's more a matter of hoping what you want is on offer than worrying the discount won't be enough!

    Lol Wtf! Im thinking EXACTLY the same, although I have modded G27 pedals with my T300 and the fanatec CSL Elite wheel Im looking at is the formula version. And of course load cell kit with the brake pedal.

    Hi Guys, it looks like Fanatec will be updating their site with the Black Friday deals tomorrow, though you still won't be able to buy until next Friday 24th :)

    In Europe too, or only in USA/Canada? Until now I havn't seen any indication on their european site that they're doing black friday offers. Would be nice though, I need a handbrake.

    Nothing to see yet on the eu. Fanatec page. I actually wanted to order the v1.5 handbrake today, but it'd be a bummer to see that I could've got it cheaper if I'd waited for a few days.....
    Ain't life a bitch? :D

    The handbrake was in last years sale, I'd be surprised to see it in this years too but you never know, last year was also the first time they had more than one deal.

    A lot and included the €20 USB adapter was something like €90 from what I remember. They did release the 1.5 soon after but for the price you can't complain!

    Looking good it says one of four but I can only see the one offer so far. I wish they would say what the other offers are so I know whether to go ahead and order my stuff :)

    Second offer is a saving on the Fanatec Universal Hub, plus the rim for free.

    Everything is on their Facebook page, otherwise it is hard to find anything, although their blog on their website is also listing the deals.

    Facebook, Facebook, Facebook, can't stress that enough. The website shows very little at the moment. They've done this for the last few years. The offers go up on their page around 1000 GMT.

    Third offer may well be the lower priced base, but the fourth offer I think will be this new high end rim they've been teasing with. Looks like it has rotary encoders on it. God knows how much it will cost though. If it is part of the new high end range maybe £600??

    This is good for Fanatec though, the last few years the deals have been single items (Porsche rim, handbrake) but this year they seem to be going all out.

    I want to buy the handbrake, but I'll wait till all four offers are there before I order.
    Who knows, I might get lucky ....;)
