View Full Version : Need some Fanatec Porsche 911 Turbo S PC impressions before investing in new PC

I did a search and found this wheel has issues with the PS4 version, but was looking for some feedback from Porsche 911 Turbo S users on the PC version. How is the FFB and rumble? Club Sport Pedals work good? Can you use the wheel to navigate all the menus out of race?

the reason I ask, is that I am about to build my first gaming PC to play this game with my old Porsche 911 Turbo S (leftover from the Forza fanatec days). I would hate to invest all that money and have a surprise unsatisfying wheel experience my first time around the track.

also, I have never updated the wheel -- I assume I would need to update the firmware for this wheel before I could use it in project cars? If so, I will do that first...might as well make sure I don't run into any wheel issues before hand.

Any input is appreciated, as I am a COMPLETE noob to PC gaming :)

Why not buy the game and try it on your current PC with wheel?

I'm using the Porsche Wheel Turbo S on the PC and it's great, not having any problems. The only reason I'm changing it is I have a CSW V2 on order so I can play across all three platforms using one wheel.

I don't like mine so much. Too muted for my tastes. I prefer the Fanatec CSR wheels, and regret upgrading one rig to the Porsche wheel.

Thats the problem, I don't have a PC to try it on. So I will be buying one without knowing how well the wheel works, but it sounds like it's fully compatible. I guess I will find out the hard way...

I'm more than happy using mine on the PC version, using it with the Ford Escort for example you can really get a feel for the car starting to slide the back end and then feed in some opposite lock to correct with the forces delivered through the wheel nicely.
