    Hi I have owned my Gt2 Wheel and club sport pedals about 2 weeks, I wanted to ask if anyone can help with the throttle, so I have turned sens down to min ingame for the throttle but when I push my pedal down around 1/4 of the way the revs are like up to 5500 ish then half way down its nearly red lining not so good for driving with no traction.

    Try to configure it in the Fanatec control panel of the wheel, test it too in other games or use dxtweak2 for definitive tuning. I have only CSP and works fine, some cars are more critical than others with the throttle (real cars too). :)

    I use dxtweak2 for rF1 but with rF2 works without tweaks.

    Good luck, you only need some testing hours. :p

    Something is wonky there BasJon. You want linear inputs so keep your sensitivity at 100. Check in the controls screen when you press the throttle that the green bar is rising with your inputs correctly.

    It will do that in neutral. Once it's in gear and out of the track off the limiter test it. It should react properly.


    I've never actually noticed it did that in neutral until now. lol

    I had my CSP's for a year and I had nothing but problems with them. They need constant attention, the Hall sensors will fail after a short period of time and they are not well built. Make sure they work correctly in the Windows Game Controllers Applet. Sounds like a calibration issue I've had- sometimes they won't return to zero, sometimes they spike. These pedals are really expensive pieces of ****.

    Get your money back.

    And for the flip side of the above post: I haven't had any issues and I think I got one of the first few off the production line WAY back... I do zero maintenance of them, I use default settings both in control panel and rF2 for the throttle...

    Had mine for 2 months now and they are excellent! The ONLY issue i have is when i load a car on a track the throttle seems to be default 100% until i just tap it once, and all is well. Could probably be fixed with a firmware update

    My only gripe with fanatec is their firmware. I've got a gtr3 wheel and csp and I love the pedals and the wheel is between good and great.

    @BasJon...Did you check all of the set-screws at the base of the pedal pads for security? They can sometimes come loose.
    If you don't slightly tap the pedals when selecting RACE to actually go on track, the throttle will be wide open when the car actually gets loaded. I found that out from another CSP user.
    Did they update the firmware install tool to allow any other OS than WinXP yet?
    I had to load XP on an old laptop to do the update to my CSP. Fanatec does not guarantee any other OS will work. Very strange choice...since Vista, Win7 and now soon to be released Win8, have all gone afterward.

    That's actually an issue with most controllers I have ever had. They often need a wake-up input. It's most common if you haven't used any app that uses the wheel since you last restarted. I actually believe it's a Windows issue...

    just to add I posted wrong mine are the GT3 version V2 and since using dxtweak the problems of the throttle are good now its just my brake now sometimes during a race I notice that the brake is on only a little but boy it slows you down, through a whole lap the only way I have managed to stop this for now is adjusting the min and max settings in the game controller so the first 1/6 of movement does nothing :(

    It should be like that with every game you load. As Tim had mentioned before it's a Windows problem. Just touch the clutch or whatever when the track loads.
