ADORNING YOUR FANATEC
A few wheels and some lovely pedals Unlike Logitech or Thrustmaster, the Fanatec ecosystem is built around its bases, to which you then buy and attach separate wheels. This is more expensive, but much better for the enthusiast that may want a couple of - or a few! - wheels in their collection. There are currently 13 wheels in the range and we’ll take a close look at the most popular here.
As before, we won’t dwell on worries like cost because this sim racing. That said, by far the most popular wheel is the Formula and it’s absolutely good enough to use that and that alone. All Fanatec wheels come with a beautifully engineered quick-release mechanism and you can hotswap a wheel in a few seconds. That’s changing with the introduction of the new McLaren GT3 wheel, which ships with a much simpler and cheaper attachment device. It still only takes a couple of minutes to remove the wheel so no big deal and it helps keep the price down. You can still buy the original quick release mechanism and attach that to any wheel with the basic system for $150.
