Fanatec Announce CSR Elite Formula Rim

Fanatec recently released CSR Elite wheel model lacks the recently added feature to the ClubSport Wheel base which allows you to simply use the quick release mechanism to switch between the wheel rims you desire to use. However now Fanatec has delivered their promise allowing owners of the CSR Elite the chance to get the Formula Rim for the CSR Elite Wheel.

The Formula Rim for the CSR Elite wheel has a metal construction, shifter padels and artificial leather hand grips with the only limitation of the wheel being the button layout due to the wheel being designer specifically for the Xbox 360.

Available in Q3 of 2012 the CSR Elite Formula rim will be available for  $179.95(excluding VAT) and 179.95 Euros(including VAT).

  • Rev LEDs removed

  • Quick-release mechanism removed. Rim can be replaced by unscrewing two allen screws and manually disconnecting the cable connecting rim to the base
