Fanatec Unveils Inverted Clubsport Pedals V3

Fanatec has unveiled an inverted version of their very popular Clubsport V3 pedal set.

Inverted pedals have become rather popular in sim racing circles as the inverted setup simulates the pedal travel and distances found in a real car.

While other manufacturers like Thrustmaster have come up with pedal sets that can simply be flipped to be inverted, Fanatec takes the concept a step further as the Inverted Club Sport Pedals V3 aren’t just a regular set flipped on its head, instead only the clutch & gas pedal are inverted while the brake pedal stays in it’s well-known position.

The pedal set is equipped with all bells & whistles you’d expect from a top of the line Fanatec product, including a custom-made 90 kilogram load cell on the brake, pre-installed brake pedal damper kit and pedal vibration. Needless to say, the set is also fully adjustable as well.

Features

  • Turning points of brake and clutch on top side like in real cars
  • High resolution pedals with magnetic and contactless sensors on gas and clutch for a long life and maximum performance
  • Pressure sensitive brake with custom made 90 kg load cell sensor
  • Adjustable brake stiffness and travel without tools
  • 12bit resolution (4096 values) on all axis
  • Alternative D-shape race plates in curved design
  • Pedal extension to adjust the angle of the pedal plate and to change the angle of the whole pedal arm
  • Brake sensitivity can be adjusted through the tuning menu of the wheel and during the race
  • Vibration motor on throttle pedal indicates rear wheel spin and oversteer (control by games is possible via Fanatec Wheel SDK)
  • Vibration motor on brake pedal to simulate ABS and indicate locking tires (controlled by Fanatec wheels: Compatible to all games. Dynamic control by games is possible via Fanatec Wheel SDK)
  • Design of the gas pedal allows quick exchange of the springs. Two springs with different strength are included
  • Damper Kit assembled out-of-box at brake, optional damper kit for gas sold separatelyThe hyraulic dampening resistance can easily be adjusted with a knob
  • Full multi platform compatibility, depending solely on the platform compatibilities of the connected Wheel Base/Racing Wheel
  • Full metal construction of CNC-machined aluminum
  • Ultimate adjustability: Position of pedal plates in all directions, angle, spring strength at throttle, brake sensitivity, brake travel
  • Compatible to the colour kits to allow perfect optial customisation (Note: colour kit footrest is shorter than standard V3i footrest!)

The set sells for 599,95€ and is in stock for order now, the pedals are compatible to all major racing titles when connected via a dedicated USB connection, on other platforms the pedals can be paired up with any Fanatec wheel base. More information is available on the Fanatec website.

    This would be cool, but see a few “wrong” things with these,
    Angles are all wrong, might be able to adjust them some. The brake and clutch is positioned to high compared to real once. And there is no firewall to replicate a stopping point. Maybe also no foot rest..

      The dimensions are absolutely identical to real car dimensions. It was developed together with several driving school instructors and the main purpose is the use in our high-end driving school simulators.

    They look ok…but I will not be giving up my ECCI Trackstar 6000 pedals any time soon which are really comfortable on my feet.

    ‘…instead only the clutch & gas pedal are inverted while the brake pedal stays in it’s well-known position.’
    This statement is ridiculous.

  • Dunlop

    that price is crazy

    • Thomas Jackermeier

      You mean crazy low or crazy high if you compare it to other inverted pedals with load cell on the market?

      • Francesco Kasta

        Definitely crazy high since the competitors are *not* mass produced like yours.

      • MC

        T3PA-PRO pedals with a load cell from Ricmotech’s half the price.

  • http://www.simrace.pl/ rauf00

    600€ for simple pedals with inverted break and clutch? i would definitely consider sth more serious like HE Pro

  • Dan Webber

    They look ridiculous and are a ridiculous price. It looks like some type of medieval torture device!!

    • noroardanto

      LOL exactly what I’m thinking

  • Karton Lepenka

    Ridiculous price for a product by company that has no quality control.

  • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

    I couldn’t possibly use those. All sorts of aches and cramps afterwards. Price is just crazy.

  • Roy Rki

    PT1 are much better choice. Pedals must be positioned vertical. These are angled like in a bus.

    • Thomas Jackermeier

      …or like in any modern premium sports- or GT race car like Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Corvette, etc. etc.

    It’s insane a price like that for a “weird thing” like this….

  • AeroMechanical

    It’s pretty easy to invert the standard V3 pedals. You just need to swap the throttle and clutch (and some spacers) and then mount them so that the base is vertical (maybe a $30 trip to the hardware store to make that happen). The pedal faces are pretty adjustable so you can get whatever angle you want. The only thing you’d be missing is the throttle hinging from the bottom if you really have to have that. I’m not seeing the benefit of this product. They look super unstable, I don’t see that little kickstand doing the trick if the plan is to just set them on the floor under a desk.

  • Francesco Kasta

    The price line is getting outrageously steep; that being said I would *probably* appreciate a conversion kit for the conventional V3 pedal set.

  • Balroque

    Give to Fanatec a little bit credit They do their stuff many years and they brought some great products Wait with judgement to first real reviews and not to smash them out just from the pictures .. It seems to be overpriced and that they are testing what market can bear, like Apple do, but I trust them they put a lot of thougth to development itself

  • Delicious Points

    My question is, won’t it topple over from the way the clutch and brake is? I can see there’s little legs on the back end but it just seems too top heavy no? Don’t get me wrong, I am still using my Clubsport V2 pedals and they’re terrific still, but I just want to know how stable and sturdy these new v3 inverted will be?
