So you’ve finally decided to take your sim career by upgrading your sim racing gear and are wondering which are the best pedals on the market.
You’ve heard me and many others talk about load cell technology and how the best sim racing pedals are using either hydraulic or load cell systems.
Load cell pedals are an awesome budget friendly choice for those that are looking to upgrade their sim racing setup without spending a fortune.
But with so many pedals to choose from, which is the best one for you?
I’ll try to break down what makes each pedal stand out and help you decide which will fit your needs best.
So let’s now get in depth with the Fanatec ClubSport V3 load cell pedals.
What’s the material?
Just like the ClubSport Pedals V2, the ClubSport V3 pedals are made from a solid piece of brushed aluminium.
This gives them a really nice and solid feel, as well as making them very resistant to scratches.
Despite having that rock solid constructions the pedals actually look really nice.
Are they adjustable and easy to adjust?
These pedals are actually pretty adjustable too.
There is the usual slider on the bottom of the pedal that adjusts both inclination and spacing between pedals.
The reason why I rated this as “yes” is because they actually offer more adjustability than their predecessor; ClubSport Pedals V2.
Are they compatible for iRacing and Assetto Corsa?
Fanatec ClubSport V3 pedals are compatible both with iRacing and Assetto Corsa.
That’s great since they are also compatible with Playstation and Xbox, which gives you more control on what sim racing softwares and device to run them on.
How are the pedals connected?
The pedals are connected to a USB port on your PC, Playstation or Xbox. They use a single cable which is long enough allowing you to connect the pedals on the front of your sim racing rig without problems.
Are they Compatible for PC?
The Fanatec ClubSport V3 pedals are compatible with PC,, Xbox and Playstation, both PS5 and PS4.
That’s good to know, since you can now use them on your current sim racing rig without problems, no need to upgrade everything just because you want load cell pedals.
Are they easy to use?
The pedals are pretty simple to use, as you would expect from any Fanatec product.
There is a single cable that goes from the pedals to your PC, Playstation or Xbox and all you need to do is connect it and you’re good to go.
Once connected, the pedals will be automatically recognized by your device and you will be able to use them right out of the box.
What’s included in the box?
Fanatec ClubSport V3 pedals come with the pedals, USB cable and even a little Allen key to adjust their inclination.
Will they make me faster?
There is no definite answer, as the pedals will not magically make you faster and turn you into a pro overnight.
However, they will definitely improve your lap times and overall experience as a sim racer, thus drastically increasing the chance of you getting faster on track.
Are they durable?
Fanatec pedals are usually extremely durable. They are made of solid construction, with aluminium making up the majority of it.
That gives them a really nice feel and look but also makes them resistant to scratches and other types of damage.
These pedals should last you for years without any problems.
How much do they cost?
The pedals are currently priced on their website at around 400 bucks.
They’re not as cheap as the Thrustmaster T-LCM pedals but they’re definetely much more affordable than all the hydraulic pedals out there.
This means that you can a really good deal for yourself.
That’s it from the Fanatec V3 pedals.
I think they’re definetely worth checking out since they can turn you into a faster sim driver without spending a fortune.
