Virtual racing fans looking for the most realistic experience outside of a race car should start saving up their dollars. Fanatec, creator of the Porsche branded steering wheel and pedal set for gamers, has evolved one of its best products with its new ClubSport Pedals V2.
Having experienced Fanatec’s products firsthand, we undoubtedly believe that its products are as close as it gets in the virtual racing world. The first generation of ClubSport pedals featured all-metal construction, high-end technology in an industrial design package with a fairly reasonable price. Now a new version is out, priced at $250 (includes ClubSport Wheel) and offers even more for the ultimate race fanatic.
The ClubSport Pedals V2 now come in either anodized black or polished aluminum and when combined with its color kits, gamers can sport gray, orange, red, or blue colored combinations. One of the biggest improvements however is a hydraulic brake complete with an oil damper to give it a very realistic and dampened feeling. Gamers can adjust the stiffness of the pedal by replacing the silicone oil with different viscosity types and can also change the spring tension on the damper.
Another enhancement to the pedal set is a degressive clutch mechanism that now gives the clutch pedal a much more realistic feature. Again, the spring strength can be adjusted to the gamer’s liking.
Unfortunately an upgrade kit won’t be made available for current ClubSport Pedals owners, but we’re sure you can fetch a good price used on craigslist or eBay if you’re looking to upgrade. Pre orders will be up on Fanatec’s website starting in May and the company hopes to have its first shipments in America by June.
