Fanatec CSR visibility

I`ve just realised today, that if you use a shifter with the CSR wheel,
you can set the aluminium paddles for viewing left & right.
.... the world is a slightly safer place.

BTW
has any one had problems with shifter calibration or throttle power loss ?

Why would anyone want to use the shifter for view left and right yes I know you can do it but why. Thats gear change area . Though on a pc you can do a lot wierder than that.

I use a six shifter for gears & the aluminium paddles for viewing Andy,

I assumed that if you changed the paddle assignment
it would knacker up the six shifter, but it doesn't

Plus, using paddle shift when the car doesn`t have one is just modding.

It's daft that they have the LSB/RSB buttons on the wheel and these aren't assigned to look left/right by default, I used to use those all the time in FM3 with the Fanatec PWTS!

I am not a purist myself, I don't use the clutch pedal (just the button) as it's just quicker, and I'm actually looking forward to the 'auto clutch' button firmware that is due out shortly as the ergo's are a little worse then the older PWTS so you get a smidge of thumb ache after a couple of hours..

im the same i use the button instead of pedal on GT2. but unless you got the csr you wont be getting new firmware for autoclutch. thomas blog said it exclusive to csr and elite. gutted

Will do, first you have to understand this was made from a roof rack,
a tv bracket & an old weights bench, so theres not a lot of carbon fibre ...
