    This is a great time to get that Fanatec setup you've been Wanting...

    I just ordered the Inverted V3's, the New Mclaren GT3 Wheel, and the Universal Wheel Hub with GT Wheel.

    The Server is SLOW, but Fanatec is extending the sale till Tuesday, and also offering the price to any one who couldn't order due to technical difficulties..

    It took ma an Hour of re-tries to get the order placed..

    Unfortunately our Webserver is not performing well and it takes a long time to place an order.
    Please rest assured that we have plenty of stock and if we run out of stock we will give all customers who could not place an order because of technical reasons the discounted price.
    The sale will go until Tuesday morning, so please take your time and check back later when the website will perform better.

    I ordered the v3i pedals this morning. Got confirmation from paypal but nothing from Fanatec. It doesn't even show up in my order list at their site.

    as long as you know paypal sent the funds, they got it.

    Yeah, Fanatec is SLOW in sending out notices.
    I actually Received my Shipment a Day, before I got the E-mail Stating it was Shipped.
    So Expect an E-mail confirmation in 2 or 3 days.

    I got Shipping confirmation, I Should receive them Monday December 4th.

    I'm having 2nd thoughts about the V# Inverted pedals.
    I hope they work as well as the Standard V3's..

    I'll probably be E-baying the ones I like least.
    No reason to keep two sets...

    Maybe I'll put together my 2nd rig again. Not sure...

    My PS Gold headset is starting to fall apart after almost 4 years. Stephen1300 had kind of recommended the ps Platinum, but for the same price here I ordered the Razer Man o War because it is also pc compatible

    Boy was I off on my predictions.

    Ended up getting my wheel on Dec 6th, after it being held by customs for 8 days.

    For the pedals, the last thing that shows up on the tracking was from Dec 5th, from "an intermediate transfer airport in METROPOLITAN AREA, LOUISVILLE, UNITED STATES".

    It's worth the Wait.... Really. You can't comapare the Fanatec setup to Logitech or Thrustmaster..
    So, once you get it all set up and working, You'll forget all about the Waiting game...

    My pedals finally arrived today. Lucked out and didn't get charged duty or taxes. I'll be doing the firmware update and installing them on my rig after supper.

    First impressions, I'm loving it! I've had to bring the pedals back to my pc a couple of times to calibrate and I'm sure it won't be the last.

    I have only set it up on my rig temporarily. Will do a full install within the next week.

    What do you have the wheel and game settings, set at?

    I'm using it with the Drive hub and the Purple mode.
    i think the Only Settings I've changed from Default are

    Sens = 54 or 72 depends on the car. This is one of the best features. Change the Degree of Rotation on the Fly.)
    DRI = -3
    FF = 50 ( this is the 2nd Force Feedback adjustment it goes in steps of 10 )

    I've had issues with them Not being reconized.
    only Solution for me is to Unplug the RJ jack in back of the base, wait about 10 seconds
    then plug it back in.. after about 30 seconds the pedals work..

    Sometimes I have to repeat this two or three times..
    if the Pedals don't work after 30 seconds, then you have to try again..

    Once the Pedals are working, they stay working, Unless, unless I accidentally Leave my DS4 turned on..
    It's only when I first start up the PS4 that I run into Pedals not working.

    DS4 interferes with Security of Drive hub.
    I have 2 DS4's one Is Powered off and plugged into the Drive hub. ( its needed for the security response )

    If I use my 2nd one to create a livery..
    I have to remember to power it off.
    If I don't, then the Drive hub fails Security, and the Pedals stop responding.
    It's about an 8 minute cycle.. the PS4 does the Security check about every 8 minutes.
    if the 2nd DS4 is powered up, then the drive hub fails security, and my Pedals stop working.
