Wheel bases not recognised in Steam games
Follow these steps to potentially solve the problem:

  • open the Steam application
  • Select “View”
  • Select “Settings”
  • Select “Controller”
  • In “General Controller Settings”, uncheck the checkbox for “Generic Gamepad Configuration Support”.

If the issue persists, reinstall the Steam Client.


Can I use other (USB, RJ12, etc.) cables than the original ones?

In theory you can use any RJ12-RJ12 (6p6c straight) and USB (type A — type B; USB 1/2.0) cable which has the right connectors on both ends. If you use high quality cables of similar length to the originals, there should be no problem. Please keep in mind that Fanatec cannot guarantee perfect functionality if third-party products are involved even if the combination should work.

Important notes regarding (replacement) cables:

  • Cables which are significantly longer than the original cables can cause connection issues
  • Extension cables are often the source of connection issues. Longer high-quality cables are the better option
  • If your product came with a high-quality ferrite core cable, a replacement cable should be of similar quality

Q: Can I purchase replacement “RJ12–RJ12” / “USB A — USB B” cables from Fanatec?

A: We should be able to offer replacement cables for all recent products. If they are not offered in the webshop, please ask our support team. But alternatively, it is also possible to use similar standard USB/RJ12 high quality cables, which are inexpensive and can be found at most electrical retailers.


CSW V2.5 and CSL Elite Base PS4 (new) drift mode explained in detail
Here is a small explanation what has been changed to the Drift Mode of the new ClubSport Wheel Base 2.5 / CSL E WB+ (PS4 version) and which new feature is “hidden” there:

CSW V2 / CSL E WB CSW V2.5 / CSL E WB+ (PS4) Notes
Standard electric motor damper DRI OFF DRI -5 Best for most games/simulations. Feels identical on both wheel bases
Reduced electric motor damper n.a. DRI -4 -> DRI -1 (new!) Can eventually cause problems (oscillations in games which do NOT support “low drag” wheels)
Electric motor damper turned off n.a DRI OFF (new!) WILL cause problems (oscillations) in games which do NOT support “low drag” (like DD) wheels
“Classic” Fanatec Drift Mode DRI 1-5 DRI 1-5 Will speed up/accelerate your wheel movements and reduce the dampening – just like power steering

DRI OFF now has NO dampening at all. Works similar to a direct drive wheel which has no mechanical resistance. If there is no FFB effect there will be no force/dampening from the motor and electronics in the wheel. That can cause problems in games if they are not optimized. DRI -5 is the safe setting now (for the CSW V2.5) as it was “OFF” in the CSW V2.

Differences to the CSW V2 / CSL E WB:

At the time the CSW V2 (and original CSL Elite Wheel Base) was developed it was not possible to create a dynamic/variable motor damper into the motor driver. To develop this features we had to design a completely new motor electronics which is driven by a logical processor and has its own firmware which is programmable/updateable. Since the combination of having NO electronic damper and hardly any mechanical dampening in the (v-belt drive) system causes problems, like wheel oscillations on straights, in most games, using this static electrical damper in the CSW V2 was a MUST. The drift mode helps to keep the effect of this damper as minimal as possible. DRI3 should be a good compromise in most games for the CSW V2 to make the wheel turn easy and freely.

IF oscillations are happening within any game…reduce the DRI value to -5 (CSW V2.5) or to OFF (CSW V2) again.


One or two connector pins in the QuickRelease are shorter. Is this normal?
You might notice that one pin is shorter on the Quick Release Connector.
This is normal and does not affect the connectivity of the steering wheel.

The purpose of the shorter pin is to connect last or after all other pins are already connected. This is called a lagging electrical circuit. It means the steering wheel will be supplied with electricity before the circuit is closed.
