    If you have access to the border, you can use a US holding company, such as Kinek, and bring it across the border yourself. I can't promise that you won't pay duty, depending on circumstances, however. It still may be cheaper, if you have to pay duty.

    Like it, I frigin Luv it... Worth every Darn Penny !
    This is what FFB should feel like.
    and the Rumble on the throttle and Brake Pedals - Man that is Sweet.
    You can feel when your spinning the tires, the tires have lost grip from Acceleration or Braking..

    Now, if only the games fully supported it...

    I do struggle getting it started in a game though...
    Either it's not recognized at all, or the Pedals don't work...
    So I end up restarting the game a few times, till it's all recognized and working...

    In Pcars1, I have to Switch it into Clubsport V2 Base Mode
    But it works in pCars2 as the CSL E and in Assetto Corsa as the CSL E

    Neither Pcars2 or Assetta Corsa Fully Support it.. So Even though it feels Great, it still not as good as it should be.

    In Pcars1 you should try the Grimeydog FFB settings found on the Project cars forum. I have great hopes for GT Sport that they will work properly right away. Pcars2 will get it eventually but who knows how long it will be.

    The Fanatec is Not a Listed Wheel on GT Sport Beta, Only the full PS4 Thrustmaster line, including the New T-GT and the Logitech G29 are listed.
    pS: The New High end Thrustmaster is NOT direct drive. $800 us
    What looks like the End of the Motor on the back of the Base, It's a Tactile Transducer, and Apparently, only functional in GT Sport.

    Not a Direct Drive Wheel. Same Belt drive as T300 base, but a slightly bigger motor.

    This is not the back end of the Motor - it's a speaker for vibration effects a Tactile Transducer.

    With all the BS about the licenses between Fanatec and Sony, they better have the CSL Elite working if they want to prevent a riot. A lot of people bought that wheel especially for GT Sport. I, for one will get my three teeth fork out of the barn.

    I agree 100%, with under two weeks to go, I would have thought I'd see support for it in the Beta. Tomorrow I find out if it works...
    the Beta goes Live. Let's hope my Wheel works.

    Te photos dont show the dampers installed. If you have a hard time, know they are a very snug fit. To the point you would think they dont slide in but they do, no angle allowed. Positionned straight they slide in perfectly.

    Yeah, I haven't dis-mounted the pedals to install the Dampers yet. Maybe this week I'll get to un-Mount the pedals and play with the Brake durometers, and dampers.

    I should be able to finish early enough tomorrow to start a room at 7:30 E. I am thinking of a one make race night using the Honda 2&4. It is farely cheap at $100,000.00 and lots of fun. We will start with it and if prefred by the group present we will switch. Nothing serious on GT sport, small races 5 to 6 laps. Starting with Willow springs. Everyone is welcome.

    A room will be set up by Oldboy1943 to0night at 7:30. Look for him or I in your friends list, the title of the room will be French Connection. I might not stay long, this is why Oldboy was kind enough t agree to do it so our Wednesday's gatherings continues as usual. If not on our friends list dont be shy and raise your hand, everyone is welcome. No need to speak french but indulgence is required for our subtle accent...

    I don't speak french, but when I do, I use Babblefish translate.

    French is the Language of LOVE
    Le français est la langue de l'argument
