Fanatec is selling their CSW base for 40% off to celebrate the German World Championship title.

Whether you care about football or not, today’s a good day for everyone looking to score a great sim racing hardware deal as Fanatec has lowered the price of their CSW wheel base to celebrate Germany’s World Champion title!

Instead of the regular price of 459,95 Euros/Dollars, the base is available for 40% off! The CSW is the center-piece of Fanatec’s line of wheels and wheel rims, including the new Universal wheel hub!

The offer is only valid today and only until stocks last so hurry up to the Fanatec web shop if you’ve been thinking about snatching up a CSW base!

  • Choose from a growing selection of very realistic wheel Rims in many different styles
  • Quick release system to allow the easy exchange of wheel Rims within seconds during gameplay

  • DirectSensorโ„ข technology: The sensor is mounted directly on the steering axis to avoid interference and performance issues that are inherent in belt and gear drives that have motor mounted sensor systems
  • Strong and fast dual force feedback motors (120W) plus 2 vibration motors in the wheel Rimย (depending on the Rim)
  • Large silent fan is installed to provide ample cooling
  • Newly designed belt drive mechanism that’s made completely of metal and uses high quality ball bearings and European belts to deliver the smoothest, most precise force feedback possible
  • Mount for static shifter paddles and other optional accessories
  • Possibility to connect telemetry displays to the data port of the wheel
  • Firmware can be updated with new features
  • 900ยฐ of rotation which can be reduced in the Tuning menu of the Rim

    Yeah…. 40% off so long as you don’t live in Australia where once again we continue to get rolled by Fanatec..!!

      Wanna bet they set the ‘timer’ for the discount for Monday the 14th, which is already over for you guys. Send them an e-mail, I’m sure it is just a mistake.

      • ftrracingtv

        no its only 10pm over here

  • GamingCanuck

    I can’t even get the website to load right now lol

  • rauf00

    site is down, nice rebate ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • ftrracingtv

    looks like its only the Europe store that has the rebate ๐Ÿ™

  • dd101

    Smells like new base is coming soon, to me.

  • Jean-Pierre Condoom

    The price is back at the normal price again…

  • Thomas Jackermeier

    I would like to mention that we also offer the 911 GT2 racing wheel at this discount and although the CSW is sold out for now we still have stock of this model.

    • MirceaR

      Hi Thomas, I ordered the CSW base, payment was accepted (40% off) and order status is processing. I understand that everything went well and I’m the proud owner of a CSW base, right?

      • Thomas Jackermeier

        Of course you are ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Stu

      Thanks for the heads-up, my GT2 broke a month or two ago and it was out of warranty, now I got a replacement for quite a great price! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • EZehnder

      So, the availability of Fanatec products has never been particularly good. It seems there’s always a wait for products. I appreciate this deal, but there’s over a 2 month wait for the CSW base in the US and the deal is gone. It’s still Monday in the US and Germany.

      Why provide a buying opportunity that you can’t make good on with regards to stock and actually keeping the price at the sale price level?

      Am I missing something?

    • Kenneth

      And I just bought that base one week ago… with two rims (new Porsche rim, F1) and handbrake… damn that hurts when its just one week later and I am married to a German woman hehe. Love the new rim btw…. ooo my it is one of the nicest things I have ever seen!!

    • Kevko

      Does fanatec offer any sort of price protection? As in, a customer buys a product and it goes on sale shortly after; they are able to receive a refund for the price difference (at least in store credit). Thanks.

    • Patrik Marek

      will keep an eye out, living in US so I only found out about this now, and it tells me it’s already sold out,

      wondering if something new is coming that you guys are clearing stock ? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Paul Mullins

      CSW base was on back order in Australia before this was announced so it was never going to happen for Aussies..!!

  • RichardHessels

    I guess the CSW’s in stock where sold out before this advertisement was posted…

  • Marcus Reynolds

    A no brainer bargain to anyone who was on the fence previously, the new universal HUB just seals the deal nicely guys ๐Ÿ™‚

    • BC72

      No, not really… The deal is over and there are no wheels to be had until Sept. Didn’t really do many any favors considering I took a look at 8am local time and it was already over. What was there 1 wheel in stock for this?!

      • Marcus Reynolds

        Well I guess those people who were lucky enough to get one would disagree then, shame it finished so quickly for sure, would have been a great chance for more people to jump on the wagon.

    • Roger Wallentin

      Cool, I havent read any reviews of the 918 rim but it looks so nice so I had to buy it regardless of the cost!

      Glad to hear you like it, looking forward to the delivery of mine!

  • Paul Marcroft

    damn that sold quick ๐Ÿ™

  • Mazda Mps

    Hopefully this means an updated version is coming, or even better a servo wheel.

  • Roger Wallentin

    I manged to get one, also bought the 918 RSR rim and the new handbrake!

    Looking forward to the test drive! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Brandon Miller

    Congrats to those who made the cut. Would be neat if Germany won something big again so I can get another opportunity. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • wajdi nujeidat

    Well, it sucks that Fanatec doesn’t ship here in Israel! I know a lot of Israelian sim racers that would like to make their one of the Fanatec products, but Fanatec continues to refuse to ship here! We have even some big Sim racing stores here and I know that they have tried several times to contact Fanatec, but they didn’t even respond to them!

    • Joรฃo Dรกrio

      And why do you think that happens ?

    • Birddogg66

      See I learned something from this post and why you may have some disappointments of Fanatec.

      • wajdi nujeidat

        You are right about me being disappointed of Fanatec, but I don’t hate on them at all.

  • kizza42

    I just bought a stack of kit off them last week!!! That’s a heck of a saving I’ve missed out on ๐Ÿ™

  • rauf00

    I wish that new base quality will be as good as Fanatec marketing lately ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Glen Orpheus

    i was too late, guess i should read my Facebook page over breakfast next time ๐Ÿ™
