    I asked this over at Racedepartment, but maybe someone here can help.
    I have recently tried to get my Fanatec CSP V1 pedals working properly again, replaced the Load Cell, cleaned up the Throttle and Clutch hall sensors etc and they appear to be functioning ok.
    However, the Brake pressure to get full reading on the Calibration software seems too much for me to be comfy with it. After reading about using DIView to adjust this, I tried it out. Only problem I found was that my pedal responses are inverted in DIView (when I press the pedals they move from right to left, high value to low value) so it doesn't seem possible to use DIView as proposed with these pedals.
    It works ok with other peripherals. In the Fanatec calibration software, the responses are low to high values ok. I've also tried DXTweak but it's the same as DIView.
    In my Sims, it's not a problem, I simply choose the "inverted" option.

    Is there any way to get them calibrated in DIView, or to adjust them so that I can get full response in-game with lower brake pedal pressure?
    I've fiddled with the little potentiometer on the brake pedal but anything less than almost full results in the response in the calibration (and in-game) being less than full brake application.

    Any help appreciated.

    I had a similar problem, I guess. In Raceroom, I could not get the brake force to reach 100 percent. so I had to go into the wheel settings and turn down the brake force..

    Do you mean to lower the Upper Deadzone in-game? That should work for RRE but not all Racing Sims have that feature.

    Hi, is it possible to have the parameters for a correct production of a fanatec v 2.5 both in the game and on the steering wheel?

    is the US getting any black Friday deals?
    when I checked out the Fanatec web site it only had links to EU pricing

    p.s. are the black Friday deals only for "facebook" users? it is the only link I saw on the Fanatec web site, or will the black Friday info be on your regular page when the sale starts?
    I wouldn't sign up for "facebook" if you were giving away Podium bases for free

    Pretty disappointed with the official F1 rim to be honest! Just a cut down formula black/carbon rim :(

    @DomB,
    I recently updated my csp wheelbase v2 to the latest driver from 310 to 311 and firmware 473.
    Now it seems, the range of force, that can be applied through the brake pedal has decreased immensely at my csp v3 pedals. I cannot exploit the magnitude as I used to and wheels block very fast when braking. Manual calibration doesn't change it. Has something been change in this matter?
    Another question is, why Enable CSP V3 manual mode is reactivated automatically after I unchecked it and open Fanatec property page again? upload_2018-11-20_20-25-55.png
    Thanks.
    Edit: Has the load cell finally reached the end of its lifetime?

    this looks like a Prototype, just like the Porsche Podium wheelhub.
    Most likely it will have the ''Cutoff'' Design, like the new F1 wheels.

    Looks like a frankenwheel! I'm a bit sad, I've been keen on the official licensed rim only to now be disappointed :(

    349 euro's at this moment on pre-order..I like the look but it's a shame they kept it to the 27cm size, one of the biggest faults with the previous F1 rim was the size, that's why the Mclaren GT3 rim was so popular..

    @Gopher04 what's wrong with 27cm? I have a Momo Mod27 and it's super fine to drive with :)
