Fanatec v2 base + carbon formula wheel + table clamp question

    Hi - I am a bit embarrassed to post this but here goes. I have just received my new V2 base, Formula carbon wheel and table clamp. First of all - wow - they are so "substantially" built, impressed! But I am a bit confused about how to attach the V2 base to the table clamp.

    1. Do I unscrew the angled base that already comes fitted to the V2, and attach the vanilla unit to the table clamp - or do I attach the (V2 + attached angled base) to the table clamp? If so, where exactly?
    2. How do the supplied screws hold themselves tight through the clamp into the unit? I cannot see any nuts supplied to hold them in? What stops them working loose?

    Would be grateful for any pix of users' solutions as clearly I am totally rubbish in this area.

    This review helped me set up mine when I first got the table clamp: .

    You can use the angle adaptor or take it off. I preferred leaving the angle adaptor on and I removed the front bit of the table clamp (see video review).

    The holes in the clubsport base are threaded (the holes on the angle adaptor are also threaded) so it is all very secure once the screws are in.

    I wish fanatec provided detailed instructions for thier products... I always have to look at reviews to find stuff out.

    I did the same thing as Aqib. I removed the front, adjustable part of the table clamp and attached the CSW with the provided angled mount to the flat part of the table clamp. I also removed the mounts for shifter on the right side. Makes the whole thing lighter and easier to attach to the desk.
    The adjustable part of the table clamp is too weak for CSW and makes the whole thing wobble if you attach the wheel base to it.

    This is exactly what I did. I removed the "movable" anlged plat from the clamp itself and attached the fixed angled base directly to the clamp. Feels rock solid now. Thanks everyone very much. Turned a few laps - wow, need to turn down the FFB!!

    Ok guys -- got everything set up physically ... now, an issue with the calibration. I have installed the latest firmware and the wheel has gone through its start-up turning phase and centred, incorrectly, slightly to the left. On the LED is a flashing CAL indicator. I have pressed - as per the instructions - the analogue Stick and the FunkySwitch at the same time to auto calibrate again. Issue is, I have pressed them - and event held them down together - yet it is still flashing CAL. Am I missing something?

    A quick double click (instead of a single click) does it for me

    Don't worry - all sorted!

    Thank you everyone for your replies!

    I took out the bolt holding the adjustable plate on the table clamp, removed that changeable plate and attached the fixed angled plate (that already came with the wheel) to the clamp. It is now as solid as a rock!!

    I had the FFB at 90% in one session and the wheel remained rock solid ... just everything else was moving!!! Will write a little review of my new wheel after a week or so of use. First impressions, very nice!

    The actual wheel in the new Nissan LMP1 car. Looks familiar ;)

    I had to keep the angular adjustment, due to my desk height. Needed to angle it somewhat downwards. Really no problem with stability. Had to tighten the allen screws in the steering weel holder though, before that the wheel vobbled.
    I guess instructions to remove the axle in the angular adjustment, to be able to access the mounting holes, could have been included...
    It takes a while to adapt to a new wheel, my lap times increased to a start, getting lower now.
    I have the CSWv2 + 918 wheel + CSS SQv1.5 combo.

    hope your desk is a sturdy one, received my V2 base and wheel rims in the last few weeks and boy has this baby got some power, had to really bolt down my GT Omega Evo rig :)

    It is a bit of a beast. I have gone back to my v1 this week and the difference is massive. The power and smoothness of the v2 is on another level. You don't notice how good it is till you go back to what you had before :cool:

    I'm pretty sure that's just a placeholder, but it is kinda funny that the one being showed there is the same one as the fanatec :p
  17. This is great to hear.

    FWIW, I like the adjustable angle-mount and have had no trouble with it (on an admittedly very sturdy built-in desk).
