New Clubsport Handbrake and CSR shifter info
Thanks to Fanatec's posts on GTP forums we now know that:
1: Clubsport handbrake will indeed connect to Clubsport pedals to make it compatible on consoles and will work with Forza Motorsport 3 and Forza Motorsport 4 as an analog axis. We can probably safely assume that it will have a USB port for PC racers, but you will need Clubsport pedals to use it on Xbox. Maybe CSR pedals will also do the job, since they will have similar electronics and makes sense to make as many products as possible compatible with each other.
2: Because Fanatec presented so many impressive, new products, no one really paid much attention to the CSR shifter. We now know it uses a similar plastic base as the current manual shifter that is sold in Fanatec Shifter set, but knob on tob is pure metal. Fanatec said it feels heavy and solid and is also less noisy with good tactile feedback.
