    Any hardware techs out there that can identify this? Something being machined? A Jig?

    Start to save up money for the ultra precise "in not near future coming" high end base unit :D:whistling:
  5. Fanatec stated on Facebook that the product will be available right away. Hopefully it's a servo wheelbase. :)

    I hope it is a servo setup !!
    Time to start saving.
  7. A consumer grade servo base would be great, could come in the $1000-$1500 price point. Would be compatible with the UVH I expect.

    Could be a new belt system, console support is unlikely unless something major has changed, my bet is CSWBv2, CSPv3, or even an F1 wheel.

    Probably a Servo Wheelbase. :)

    Probably a marketing campaign and you are all falling for it :)
  11. Falling for what tho? ;) It has to be a wheel, granted, I'm sure the driving force GT states "Power. A lot."
    But as Fanatec power baseline is the CSWB it begs an interesting question.
    I hope it's not a precise, smooth, rock solid, powerful IPhone holder....:)

  16. A servo system which uses a quick release Iphone holder for the wheel, utilising Apples fantastic gyroscope for steering input.....hiring Fanatec? Plenty more great ideas where that came from. ;)

    New update today
    Next gen?
    I hope it is not a ps4 or xbone wheel:cautious:
  18. Why not? Would having support for console as well as PC ruin the wheel for you in any way?

    If it was a servo wheel base i wouldnt understand why it would be compatible with xbox and ps4.
    You would not get the best out wheel base on a console.
    I was thinking it would be somthing hi-end like acc force setup.
    Which is purely pc based.
    But we will see what happens:p

    I don't care for console support either, but you won't believe how many CSW owners use it on a console, which for me is a waste of it's potential, but a lot of customers like it.
    A lot of people think it is only a motor upgrade for the CSW we will see. I hope for direct drive, but I am not sure.
