Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel Round 1 V2 For XBOX Review
You might think this steering wheel looks like It was made for a 12-year-old boy, but Think twice, this rim is perfect not just for old games but for Vintage Formula titles as well, What I agree the most is, this rim is not for “hardcore sim racers” looking to add training rim for the track or something, this is a rim that was made in mind for more weekends racers o sim-lite testing new kind of driving styles, like Formula 1 cars of the 1980’s, This rim is for nostalgics guys like you and me looking to feel how driving a vintage car looks like.
Games like RaceRoom where you have plenty of vintage touring cars to play with are perfect for this RIM, but any “back on the days” F1 game can fit this rim as well. What I like the most is the round shape and smooth leather that also allows you to spin the wheel.
Like many other steering wheels made by Fanatec, the Clubsport Round 1 for your Xbox Console is made in a combination of two products, This time the rim Round 1 and the Clubsport Universal HUB V2 For Xbox.
This should be your first and only one rim on your system ? not sure about it, but if you are looking for new additions for your racing experience and you have 400$ that bothers you, go for it.

This is another niche sim racing wheel, made for nostalgics racers and those looking for a new addition for their setups, This should be your main steering wheel? not sure about that, The leather is very good and the size of the wheel is very good as well ( 27 cm), most are 23. (A nice point on that )
At the end this rim is a good bundle made from two products, the NEW ClubSport Steering Wheel Universal Hub V2, and the ClubSport Wheel Rim Round1, you can get one of these for your setup for 400$ bucks, think is too much? I think so too.
