    I am split between getting an LG OLED C7 for a new TV and monitor (my gaming rig is hooked up to the telly)... or quite possibly getting the high end version or the a podium series.

    I mean, there were going to be different torque versions. So I just don't want to run out of dynamic range ever again.

    The first thing I would try when I would get mine is... set the wheel at full force and than tune down the game's output accordingly. That way there is no way the game its ffb signal would clip at the output stage to the wheels driver, nor will the podium motor clip at any point.

    A month ago I was convinced to buy it, but now I have some doubts.

    I recently had a problem with my wheel and the support is not beeing as good as expected. Let's see how it ends.

    Other problem is that until it's natively supported by the games, probably has to run in compatibility mode with previous Fanatec models (the McLaren GT3 rim i.e. don't take advantage of some controls). Probably the additional torque will be there from the beggining, but we can not take it all the way until the developers lauch new versions of the games.

    I think I'm going to wait for the specifications, the final price, and the first reviews.

    I can understand you holding back because of your support experience. Mine has never been bad but I hear it differs from person to person.

    About compatibility though. I think AJ will get us sorted quickly on this one, maybe even hotfix patch this one in. Otherwise grabbing the Fanatec CSW V2.5 profile won't be a bad decision as it doesn't have any extra tinkering done to it I believe, plus you might need a custom RAW file with no wheel specific additives enabled.
    SMS has always been quick on bringing compatibility to their games at least.

    In any case, waiting never hurt anyone.

    Yeah, I don't want so say that the support is bad. It's my first experience and I can't generalize, but ATM in my personal case is not beeing good. I was even thinking in buying another CSL wheel base, but it isn't avaliable until september (3 months). I finally bought a G29 until the problem is solved.

    Yes, I think that could be compatible with CSW 2.5 to have full functionality from launch.

    That works great on the osw and yes not running out of range is awesome!!!!!! Crashing hurts though with the wheel set so you can get max force when the game tells it to(like crashing). You learn to let go of the wheel real fast. Youll never go back once you try a dd wheel.
