FANATEC CSL Elite Steering Wheel WRC Review

CSL Elite WRC

New kid on the block, this officially licensed WRC steering wheel is an introduced for rally driving, fully compatible with PC, and the new gem Xbox Serie products, of course, these new steering wheels are coming from factory with 13 buttons in total and a new Funky switch style that made this rim extremely configurable along with the extra set of buttons for you PC.

This steering wheel feels good in hands, the genuine Alcantara® grip is quite good and looks really like a professional rim. What makes this steering wheel REALLY interesting is in the back, You are a witness o the new Fanatec Quick Release systems, probably the one that will be by default in new releases wheels for the Clubsport series and Podium series, but that’s my guess, nothing officially announced.
