Fanatec CSR Elite Pedals with Thrustmaster TX 458 Wheel

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Ho3n3r, Nov 2, 2015.

  1. I am using the CSR Elite V1 pedals, but I want to get a TX 458 wheel to use with it. Will this be possible? Currently it plugs into my Fanatec wheel via PS/2.

    I'm hoping somebody has done this - or similar - config.

    I have this exact Setup, TX & CSR Elite pedals, works great, just connect the pedals via USB, job done! :thumbsup:

  4. @PaulH my wheel started vibrating and making some loud humming noise, and I smelt some burning. Seems it was overheating!

    You ever experienced this? Is it dangerous if it happened only once? I am not using high FFB settings - 60% overall, then 100-100-0-0.

    Not experienced that(so far), maybe your fan stopped spinning/got caught? then something overheated, smelling burning is not a good sign :(
    I use 80% 100-100-0-0
    Is it working at all now?

  6. Thanks for the worries mate. :) Apparently it's just the fan. Was worried though coz I never knew a wheel's fan could be that loud.

    Maybe the smell was just because of the first time it got hot, I dunno, but it doesn't smell like that any more when the fan comes on. It's still working 100%. Perhaps it's got something to do with the fact that it was 35 degrees Celsius or more the last few days.
