    Hello Guys,

    i do own an Fanatec Clubsport Wheelbase V1 (1.5) and Formula Carbon Rim. Due to that on longer races (+1 hour) its hard to drive with the Formula Rim i decided to look around for a BMW rim. Now that i got a nice offer i heared some rumors saying that the part & Motor wearing of the wheelbase is very high when its combined with a BMW rim due to the high weight of the rim.

    Anyone got an experience with that as i don't want to damage the wheelbase.

    Thx for your answers :)

    I doubt that the BMW rim would induce more (or faster) wear. It was designed for the base.
    That said, I chose for the Porsche 918 RSR which is lighter.
    I also have the Fomula carbon and racing with it probably induces more wear on my arm and shoulder muscles :D
    For endurance races you could set the cars FFB a tad lower. On the other hand, I have raced several 6 to 25hr races in pCars without changing FFB and was not really bothered by the greater forces needed to control the wheel (note that my FFB settings/feel are equally strong in pCars).
