How Do We Review Fanatec Products?

All of our reviews include our thoughts from hundreds of hours of testing. Most of the sim racing products that are reviewed above have been purchased by ourselves. And we have been running them as part of our main sim rig for months, if not years.

Our main sim rig consists of a GT Omega Pro cockpit, with a triple screen monitor setup. We try to use this same rig for all of our testing, so we have a level playing field for all reviews.

This cockpit can handle all wheel bases, right up to the most powerful 25Nm Podium DD2. for instances where we review new sim rigs, such as the RennSport V2 cockpit, we utilize our second sim rig setup. Our second sim rig is setup to be much more configurable, and interchangeable.

We always look to create in-depth reviews for every product, including Fanatec wheels and gear. We give each product its own time to shine, and expertly compare it to other products in the same category
