I am getting the BMW steering Wheel GT 2 and would like to use it on my Podium DD 1, for WRC 10.
Can somebody tell me, if that would be OK ! ?
The BMW M3 GT2 is FULLY compatible with a Podium DD1. It is known however to be one of the heaviest Fanatec wheels though.
Since the real car uses a sequential floor shifter instead of paddles, I removed my shifters completely for realism. That took care of the extra weight .
I suggest you do the same and get the static shifters from Fanatec that mount to the DD1 for rally driving if you don't have the ClubSport Shifter.
Thank you Jack ! I will try it out.
The GT2 V2 is much lighter than the original version, and comes with magnetic shifters, which are easily removable, which makes it even lighter.
I assumed he was getting a used BMW M3 GT2 V1
Anyways, I weighed my V1 WITHOUT paddesl/shifters including button caps = 1710 grams
V1 WITH paddles/shifters from Fanatec specs = 2120 grams
V2 (Assuming WITH paddles installed) from Fanatec specs = 1661 grams
My understanding part of the weight saving on the V2 is the two vibration motors are now excluded. Those could also be pulled out of the V1.
The weight is a nice bit of dampening if you've got a podium DD I find they have power to spare.
