Advice Needed on CSL Elite & Xbox
I am new to the forum and sim racing in general, apologies for any dumb questions as searching didn’t give much insight to my specific situation. I recently sold a G920 with intentions to pick up a used Fanatec setup, but have reservations after reading posts from the past few months. Two concerns about the CSL Elite with Xbox One X, any advice on either would be greatly appreciated.
- Buying used: Private seller has a complete Fanatec bundle (CSL Elite V1.1 base, P1 wheel, LC pedals, Clubsport shifter and handbrake) and agreed to $1k. All components look to be in excellent condition, but being just over a year old with 150hr estimated use I’m concerned about longevity. Recent posts here suggest Fanatec support has become non-existent, will parts availability or repairs be an issue?
- Xbox compatibility: Are the button mapping issues on all Xbox compatible wheels, or just those with additional inputs? I have no intention to upgrade from the P1 wheel, would just like to verify the P1 wheel, Clubsport 1.5 shifter and HB will all work as intended on the Xbox.
My end goal is to switch to PC at some point down the road after establishing a solid setup, but reading the numerous unresolved technical issues and unanswered questions posted here is....unsettling. General advice or thoughts on Fanatec vs others would also be appreciated.
