Fanatec ClubSport Steering Wheel Universal Hub for XBOX ONE Review
Endless customization is what you can achieve with this HUB, It was created with personalization in mind, the enormous amount of setups are unlimited, I have reviewed a lot of product these years but can’t find one that can be used or ( adapt ) in so many ways like this HUB, Basically, you can attach any wheel rim you want in the Xbox Ecosystem including the new Xbox Serie.
The purpose of this product is to function as a button panel and a shifter paddle holder for any Clubsport Wheel in the Fanatec Ecosystem.
The universal hub is pre-configured for the GT rim but you can change the button layout to your own preference. The button caps can be changed easily to racing style button caps, with symbols that match the most popular functions you need during a race.
One thing I concern is the installation process, in order to change RIMs you need to un-attach the from panel in the HUB to be able to adapt the new wheel, this can take some time but I think ones you figure out how to do it is not that hard, and all you need comes from factory including the Set of screws.

Perfect adapt for GT Rims but can be used in any Xbox one and PC rim, The materials are really good, the feeling and sound the shifter paddle made are nice, the customization is almost endless in this HUB, you can setup your steering wheel in any imaginable position, adjusting buttons, shifter paddles and led panel.
The only side you need to consider is ( installation process ) can take some time to adjust everything the way you like in your steering wheel.
For regular Xbox Users, this HUB comes from factory in many steering wheels like the Brand New Clubsport R300 serie, and GT.
Worth the money? If you buy this product as a stand-alone product you will need 350$ buck, for the same money you can acquire a full steering wheel ( The hub and the rim ) at almost the same price, like the Clubsport GT Alcantara.
