You can not compare this Fanatec set with DD wheels, be it OSW or the really expensive Bodnar SS, or the Accuforce (e.g.)
The Fanatec is still belt driven.
Fanatec has a DD wheelbase in development though, but there are no details known yet.

ONT, Do not get the XbonOne HUB, it is overpriced. PC version of the HUB is around 50-70 bucks cheaper and same exact thing. Can't find it on the website ATM thought which is weird, I ordered one around a month ago. Had Xb1 version in cart then saw the pc version was way cheaper.

Still able to use with a Xbone ?

Think I may spring for a scorpion X if the price is right so I can play all my old X and 360 games....both consoles blew up :(

Yes the old hub was discontinued a while back and they have just been selling off what was left, it's still available in Australia but looks like they've sold out in the other regions.

Can't use the old version with Xb1, though.

Also, be aware. The hub makes the rim heavy, especially if you add the paddles and button assemblies. The added weight, reduces the fidelity of the FFB. I had to strip all the button and paddle assemblies off the hub to get the weight down and improve the fidelity. But that basically regulated the rim to cars with sequential or H-shifters, but even then, I didn't have buttons for things like Look Left and Look Right. :( The BMW rim is much lighter than the hub combo. And the F1 and Porsche rims even lighter and offer the best fidelity. But the hub combo, although convenient, turned out to be my least favorite rim.

The CSL rim works with Xb1, and is lighter than the hub combo, but the rim isn't leather, and it doesn't have a quick release collar, which kind of annoying if you change rims often.
