Latest reviews

Amazing driving experience and easy to use
I went from a CSL Elite to a DD2 and it was an incredible improvement. The detail I got through the wheel was on a level I had not experienced before.

One thing I loved about it is how easy and user friendly the product was to use. Adjusting settings, updating software etc. Fanatec did a great job with this wheelbase.
