Over the years Fanatec has become one of the main names in sim racing.  They were also one of the first companies to offer truly cross platform compatibility wheels for the sim racing market.

Their latest wheel set, the CSL Elite, or the Clubsport light is their latest entry into the cross platform market with a wheel that is both PC and XBox One Compatible.

The CSL Elite Wheel set comes with a Fanatec CSL Elite Wheel Base, the CSL Steering Wheel P1 for the Xbox, and a set of CSL Elite pedals with a load cell brake.  This wheel set retails for $639.85 which is almost half of what a Clubsport set will cost.

In this video Shaun Cole of The Simpit goes through all of the parts.  He also talks about getting it setup for racing on his simrig.  But most importantly he discusses how this wheel set performs on track.

I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?
