Fanatec online for Australia

Post by Sleuth 101 on Wed Jul 25, 2012 9:58 am

A quote I found on fanatecs website.

Someone asking when they can buy from Australia?

"Not at the moment. With our new website it will be possible to order from Australia.

The website will be online in a few weeks".

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Best regards

you tell them Rinkly!

but I think this is more related to spare parts (non-warranted) and accessories. Ive also heard this Fanatec stating a Online shop within weeks for Aust

FYI: I had to replace the main board on the Club peddles to sort out several problems, My wheel was out of warrantee, but hess (Pagnian's) supplied me with all boards and sub-peddle boards free of charge.

I'm really not sure how Fanatec intend on supporting their product...

It's all well and good when you can talk to a local distributor, and recieve exceptional support.. What happens once Fanatec are shipping straight from Germany?

Hey all,

I was just browsing through Pagnian, I noticed that OZFM reviewed the Next Level Racing Wheel Stand, can anyone tell me more about it? I'm tall 6'4" so wondering about how far the pedals move back, and if it would be a good upgrade from the Rennsport Wheel stand. Tax time means I can give myself a little present =)

I actually imported a Fanatec CSR and Clubsport Pedals v1 and a Rennsport wheel stand, Wheel is great (wish the Elite wasn't so incredibly expensive!) Cubsport pedals are just awesome, but I'm not convinced about the Rennsport wheel stand I always feel like the wheel is not in line with the rest of the gear as it's on a single pole so it feels like it is always angled lightly left or right. No amount of fiddling seems to resolve this, plus the pole between the legs messes with the pedals. This was all way before Pagnian got any CSR stock, I got this November last year I think...

Any information anyone has on the Next Level Racing Wheel Stand would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Jason

You'll find my review of the Next Level Wheelstand HERE. I used a GT2 wheel and clubsport pedals for the test.

As I said in the review, the stand is industrial grade construction and rock solid in use.
I haven't used a rennsport stand but from what I've heard I think the Next Level stand would be a big improvement for stability.

The stand is height adjustable and the wheel mounting plate is fixed on top of the stand. Theres about 20 cm adjustment in the pedal base and that would hopefully give you enough range to adjust for your own height and seating situation. One thing to consider, the pedal plate is inclined so as you move it away from yourself the pedals will go higher off the floor and your foot position is elevated a bit more.
I'm 6'0" and was able to adjust the stand to suit my height, though I would have preferred a flatter/lower pedal position.

I expect you'd be able to get it to work for you, but the only way to find out if it would adjust to suit your 6'4" height and seating setup would be to give one a try.

I don't own a Next Level Wheelstand, but there are a couple of other guys who do, including The Jester Race who just won the unit I reviewed. Maybe they can help here as well.

I think FeralCobra also has one via Pagnian Imports sponsored prize for prev V8 series (not 100% sure on the comp) but i know he won the prize, think he did a comprehensive review also? (may have been Envy the Best)
going on memory here so dont shoot me.

@ SunCrossed,

Radio Rentals (if you have the shop in NSW) have the Next Level Racing Wheel Stands in there shops, at least they do in SA

it might be worth a look to see if they have them and you can try before you decide.

correct teeroy i won the fold up wheel stand from the last v8 series and did a review on it some were on the forum cant remember where and absolutely love it and from memory it was envy who won the full race frame from the time attack comp (i think that's what it was called ) but suncrossed if you have the cash i would say if you like the simulation feel of a cockpit go for it and grab one if i had the cash i would like the full frame cockpit .i cant say of the full frame but the wheel stand is well built so i would say the cockpit would be the same Very Happy

Great thanks Feral, I'm look at the stand as I need to be able to move it out of the way, would like the cockpit but nearly need a dedicated room for that, don't have that.... yet. I'll check it out, definitely on my list now. Thanks for the information, helps a lot. Very Happy

Logitech G27

Post by LATENT IMAGE on Wed Aug 01, 2012 7:52 pm

Hi all just want to post my latest acquisition:
I got a Hyperdrive seat and a Logitech G27 recently, still waiting on the XCM F1 v2 converter box to make it compatible with Xbox, about another week.

Looking forward to racing anew soon...

Latent.

Oh you can, BUT it does look like that they may have no stock left of CSR wheels, a quick email to them asking when and if they may be getting more would I'm sure be replied to in a timely fashion. , If not Ebay sometime has a couple or JB HIFI for the turbo S model as they still have it in some stores with clubsport pedals pretty cheap to in comparison to when they were first released, and if all else fails wait for Fanatec to open there new website to include us aussies. Good luck.
