Porsche 911 GT2 Wheel

 Porsche 911 GT2 Wheel

This is one of Fanatec's wheels, that are compatible with three gaming platforms, PC, Playstation 3 and also Xbox 360. It has a quite thick 12" wheel rim wrapped in hand stitched Alcantara for optimal grip and comfort. There are 3 force feedback motors in this wheel for ultimate immersion and road feel. The main force feedback one is a very strong Mabuchi RS 550 electric motor, which simulates forces coming from the steering rack, while the other two are smaller motors that vibrate, simulating engine rumble or warning you when you step on the brakes too hard and lock the wheels. Force feedback is extremely smooth and realistic, thanks to high quality belt driven force transmission system.

It comes with aluminum Clubsport shifter paddles and a Logitech G25/G27 pedals adapter is included if you do not want to spend money on new pedals, so you can simply use your old pedals with it, only buying a new wheel.

It is available in two editions. Standard edition is just the wheel without the pedals and an adapter for G25/G27 pedals (Standard pedals for Porsche Wheels available - see below). Clubsport edition is the ultimate package, that comes with everything the standard edition does plus Clubsport pedals, Porsche wheel shifter set and carbon fiber shifter paddles.

Packages and accessories: 

Since the standard package of this wheel does not include pedals, it is recommended to buy the Clubsport Edition, that includes Fanatec's well known Clubsport Pedals, which are made completely out of metal, offer realistic resistance and unlike other pedals in this segment, they have a load-cell brake pedal. Porsche Wheel Shifter Set is also included in this package.

If you do not have G25/G27 pedals and want to save money, you can choose to buy the standard package and Fanatec's standard pedals. These are much more affordable than the Clubsports, but not as good and durable.

gt2 racing wheel

I am curious whether I should get this wheel. it is expensive and I am seeing lots of negative comments about the wheel and the company. but I am also hearing lots of positive things about this too. this would be the only present if I get this. Is it worth it? please comment on this and give me reasons why I should and why I shouldn't
thanxs alot

GT2 Gas and Brake applies at the same time

I have the GT2 Wheel and my Gas and Brakes both apply when I hit the Gas. Before this problem, The Gas would hesitate or lag. Fanatec has dropped the ball big time! I don't know rather to buy a new pedal kit or steering unit. I waited 3 months for mine and only can use the steering unit, and pedal shifters for the gas and brake.

g25/g27 pedal adapter

Hi just wondering if anyone would know if the the g25/g27 pedal adapter does work before I puchased one. thanks

Far East Asia

Anyone know where to pick these items up in Far East asia ?..

Stiffness of GT2 wheel with F12011

I cannot understand why all the suggested settings for the GT2 have force feedback set so high. When I play F12011 on my XBox360 it is much too stiff. Just a little bit of movement left or right when driving straight causes a lot of resistance in the wheel. The only way I can get the smoothness and sensitivity of the steering as I would expect to get in a real F1 car is to switch force feedback off altogether. Is this an XBox360 specific problem.

Can anyone suggest settings that give me force feedback without making the steering so heavy?

GT2 Wheel FF!!

Yeah I had the same issue, I have turned my wheel down to about 50 now for the FF, works a lot better, man this thing is strong.

Do you have any problems with the engine sound being interupted from the wheel, keeps cutting in and out, this is my issue at the moment, and I can not find any info on this anywhere.

I have tried my controller again and the sound is ok, so when I hook the wheel up, it keeps cutting the sound to the motor all the time, and even in iRacing it does the same thing, so I know it's not the game.

gt2 wheel

m8 the gt2 wheel is great but will update to the new csw in about a yr or so, but its great to see fanatec have give the real sim racing guys the best wheel this time as until u play rfactor or a game similar, xbox and ps3 is for kids and arcade drivers.

Buying

When will the clubsport package of this be available? And why is the porche 911 turbo s sold out? I have an xbox 360 so now this is my only option and it doesnt even come with pedals or shifter, so wtf?

gt2 background noise

i am using turtlebeach x41 and am getting lota of background feeddack other players tell me it sounds like a waterfall .tried pluging in to seperate powersource no change.

still no reply

After about 15-20 emails i still havent got any reply from fanatec about my broken wheel... i did what was required sent them videos and detailed problem of the issues im having with my wheel.. i want the wheel replaced.. i paid good money for the wheel they were happy to take my money but not happy to replace my broken wheel .... they offered "repair or refund" this is totaly unacceptable when i paid for a brand new wheel... not my fault they shiped out a defective product so why should i have to suffer?? am i not a paying customer?? did i not do what they asked me to do?? so whats the problem sending me a new wheel ?? i waited over a month and a half for them to delver this broken wheel, how long do i have to wait to get a replacment ??

You are certainly right dude,

You are certainly right dude, they should replace the wheel. It sucks that their cuality control be so defetuous... I hope they solve that problem before I order my wheel

Wheel to xbox

Please, the people of Brazil's crazy about this wheel, bring a huge lot for us, for sure, we will buy! hugs!

gt2 wheel

my wheel seems to turn to the left 2 full turns but on the right only turns 90 deg max why is this? and does this happen to any1 else?

wheel will only turn right 90 degrees

I have the exact same problem with my fanatec porsche 911 carrera wheel, where it only turns right 90 degrees but will turn left two full turns. Does anybody know how to set the wheel so it turns equally both ways?

International Shipping

I really wish they would ship this to South Africa...

ABS

Do you guys had any problems playing Forza 3 and this thing decides to torn on the ABS?

GT2 wheel Xbox 360 Forza 3

i dont know if you meen that instead of vibrating the wheel when you hit the brakes, it vibrates when you hit the cluch... was that it? i think this is happening in xbox 360 forza 3 with my GT2 wheel, but since i just bought it today i´ll test it for more daysa and then i´ll be sure...

Dongle

I looked at the Fanatec site about the wireless USB dongle, and it said that it is only compatible with the Turbo and Turbo S (both discontinued). Has anyone tried using it with the GT2 to establish a wireless connection to the PS3 and/or PC?

It works

Electronics of the GT2 wheel are practically the same as internals of the Turbo S wheel, so there is no difference in compatibility with this USB dongle. I have not tried it myself, because I never bought it, but it definitely works.

greetings It would be

greetings It would be possible to make right a value so that you sent me the projection for the brazil?

GT2 wheel not responseing

I got my GT2 wheel on Mar 2011. My wheel just become dead, the last reponse on the wheel's display keep flashing "8". I power it down and reboot it, but it wont wake up anymore.

My total playing hours of my wheel is within 10 hours! This time, i contineously played 50mins.

I am now hopeing it cool down and back to work!

GT2 wheel

Well I have had this issue along with disconnecting. Even had 2 of these both have issues. The 888 seems to be the standard when it comes to the problems with all there wheels.

Don't think these guys are concerned about quality and taking care of there customers. Customer support is lacking, or the fact that they have so many wheels with issues they can't get to yur email within 24 hours.

Pretty much we will take care of it someday.

Another GT2 Wheel that wont power up

Same here chaps ref dead wheel. I did some playing and after some testing it powers up after a random amount of time - anywhere between 5 and 25 mins and once on and warmed up (makes some very strange fan noises like grinding for a bit) its awsome, although it gets very hot even after an hours use - Have you tried leaving on, it may fire up after a while?

Small company or not Fanatec customer services is the worst I have ever dealt with, by a country mile - completely shocking. Trading off the German engineering quality name with cheap electronics put together in China with shocking customer services to support after sales issues.

Main email account replaied saying the room may be too cold and the electric's need to warm up - WTF really in 2011 its in a centrally heated house at a constant temp I dont expect to have to wait 20 mins for it to warm up - what ever next like an F1 car and using a blow dryer on it to get it started! I pointed out the manual states the operating range on 0 to 40 degress c!

Good luck getting a replacement 7 days on and all I have is silence from support, if I havent heard by Friday I am just going to refer to my Credit card company. After months of waiting livid that they didn't something thats fit for purpose.

Good luck all, lets hope they sort out the issue!

power up problems

Hi I too had power up issues like yourself.The problem in my case was a faulty power adapter,Thomas sent me replacment which solved issue 100%. Hope this helps....Top notch product.

Love my wheel but having acceleration problem

Got my GT2 and Club Sport pedals on February 23. Have played Forza 3 on Xbox and GT5 on PS3 every day since. Control is perfect for Forza with default wheel settings. No shaking or other handling anomalies. Perfect one-to-one. GT5 was sloppy at first but followed some tuning suggestions and now the handling is very good, though not quite as tight as Forza. Dirt 2 on the PS3 is fine with default wheel settings.

Unfortunately, starting last night, acceleration has become buggy. Sometimes depressing the gas pedal produces no or limited acceleration. Pumping the gas pedal can recover from this but then the problem will occur further along in the race. It has progressed to the point where I've stopped racing.

What concerns me is that my son's wheel and pedal set that I bought for him and arrived the same day is showing the same symptoms and worse, now does not power on at all. I'm wondering if there might be a problem with the entire last run out of China.

I've e-mailed Fanatec support and will hope for a timely fix.

To me it's exactly the same

To me it's exactly the same in forza 3 and dirt3!
The FANATEC already has a solution?

thanks

"I'm wondering if there might

"I'm wondering if there might be a problem with the entire last run out of China."

That is probably possible. I got my GT2 yesterday and it also doesn't power on. It exactly does nothing but the power supply works. I hope that they replace or repair the wheel faster than the time the shipping took.

Great product and great support

There's some issue with shipping and availability of the wheel; I ordered the CS edition back in mid-December and received it in mid-Feb. But I can completely understand Fanatec is a rather small company and was probably overwhelmed by the demand being the only quality wheel manufacturer to support MS console. Fanatec also provide great support for their products; my wheel was missing the pedal wire and they got one to me within a week.

Once I got the wheel and pedal setup everything worked like a dream. I've had the G25 previously and the GT2 is just in another class. The customization feature is very handy and I absolutely love the fact you can assign individual settings for different type of racing (I have one for slot 1 for F1 and openwheels, slot 2 for Forza/GT5/Race Pro, slot 3 for arcade racers). I don't think I can deal with another wheel without a similar degree of internal adjustability/personalization. CS pedals impressed me as well. It's built like a rock and again very adjustable and mod friendly. CS pedals also have it's own internal control system so it can be independently adjusted via SW/FW updates. I didn't think much of the brake forcefeed back feature (which simulate clattering effect of ABS) but came to rely on it to judge braking in a few races. The only real complaint I have to the entire package is the shifter. It felt comparatively cheap to the high quality build of the wheel and pedals. The shifter also doesn't feel very solidly mounted with the two rods extended from the wheel. I wish Fanatec would offer an option to bolt mount shifter to stand or seat, but currently the shifter doesn't have any pre-drilled holes for a more permanent placement. There's a rumor of a clubsport edition of shifter coming soon, so I'm willing to wait.

Overall amazing product and well worth the money. A lot of people might think $500 is a lot to spent on a wheel setup but I think it's easily justified by the quality and design of the product, not to mention it's the only real wheel available for 360.
