Connecting Clubsport V1 pedals via USB?

Driver 429 and Fanalab v1.60.2 is the only Fanatec drivers and/or software I have installed at the minute.

My V1 pedals work fine when connected to my CSL DD wheelbase and IIRC they show up as CSL pedals or something in the Fanatec Control Panel and the input bars all show that everything is working fine (which it is). But they don't show up in Fanalab at all and I wanted to see if I could get the proper ABS vibration motor working from ACC's telemetry rather than the fake simulated vibration so figured maybe I need to connect the pedlas via USB in order to get Fanalab to recognise the pedals...

Once connected via USB they still show up in Fanatec Control panel but none of the input bars move when the pedals are pressed and the handbrake bar is constantly at 100% (I don't even have a handbrake) and the pedals do not work in game.

So, am I missing some driver or something that I need to install along with 429 in order to get the pedals working via USB?

I'd totally understand if the pedals are not supported in Fanalab as they are very old now but aside from Fanalab I can't get them working via USB in the regular Fanatec Control Panel and thus not in game either.


  • I can't be the only one still using V1 pedals? lol

  • I keep meaning to try this out, and keep forgetting. I'm not sure connecting via USB is the way to go here. My v1's are connected via RJ12 and I managed to get them to show up as v3's in Fanalab. There's a little drop down arrow near the picture where you can select them, IIRC.

    I'll try messing around with this hopefully later tonight and see what I can come up with.

  • Well, I played around with it for a bit, but came up empty. When connected via RJ12, I can force Fanalab on the Main screen to see the v1's as v3's (or v3i, or CSL Elite pedals, or some other options).

    But no matter which type of pedals I select, when I go to the Vibration menu, it still says "Pedal Brake: Not available".

    I can't seem to find any kind of a manual for Fanalab that might shed some light on this. The zip file with the installer has a couple of pdfs included, but they're not particularly helpful.

    Maybe getting accurate brake rumble from telemetry is just not something that can be done with the v1's. It sounded like Maurice was saying that it *could* be though. I dunno, unless maybe it does require them to be connected via USB, which I'm not totally eager to do since it involves me crawling around on the floor to access the bottom plate and switch inputs. If I'm going to do that, I want to know ahead of time that it'll be worth it.

  • Thank you for having a look! Seems you have the same results as me when connected via RJ12 then, I'm sure I've had mine connected via USB before but that was with the very old drivers that I had with my old 911 GT2 wheel so maybe USB support for them just isn't a thing any more with newer drivers. I'm going to have to buy some V3's now aren't I :'-(
