Outstanding. I've read several reviews by now and while there are a few really good ones out there, yours is the most professional and well-rounded one. Kudos.
For now I got two questions remaining. When writing "The previous CSR Elite wheel has been somewhat criticized for being plastic, flexible and rough around the edges. However, the benefits of that design would be the weight of it. The less weight the rim has, the easier it will be for the motors to rotate quickly.
CSR owners will be happy knowing Fanatec has advised that they will release some rims for their wheel too
without quick release of course.", Conny means the CSR Elite, not the normal CSR? If so, using the full CSR Elite name twice might help prevent confusion.
Second issue. While I am aware that multiple aspects including a bit of randomness factor in when running timed laps, a very rough comparison how the new gear tends to influence lap times would be great. Thank you.
Yes, you are quite right.It's the CSR Elite of course.
Regarding the laptimes, It's extremely hard to say .3 or .5 of a second as it depends on the lenght of a circuit.
But I can tell you that with iRacing I have lowered my personal best times on most tracks with between 0.3 and over a full second after I got this wheel.
As I have written in the review, the main thing is really how I now can constantly keep good laptimes.
With the GT3rs I could put one really fast lap of 100, then 10 that was good and then the rest was "less good"
With this wheel I put 10 as fast laps, if not faster, and 80 are good.
That's where you win the races.
