I also said that it was early days for Fanatec as far as Direct Drive products were concerned.
But I was sure they would bring the full might of the Fanatec machine to bear when it came to developing the firmware for it. The driver update is an excellent example of what Fanatec can do.
And what their Podium DD wheelbases are capable of delivering. If you currently own a Podium DD wheelbase you should install the new driver and firmware as soon as you can. You will see that it has a noticeable improvement of any previous driver distributions. This package contains updates are a must have. All you have to do is read the distribution notes to see how much has changed.
No worries here it is a to me, very noticeable improvement in all around performance for the Podium wheelbases.
Filtering in general has been improved and new filters are present. The linear filter is a good one if you want to tame some the spikes you get in certain conditions. The interpolation filter is one that I do use as it is quite effective at smoothing the overall FFB delivery. While not stepping on the detailed FFB that is vital to knowing what a car is doing when pushing hard. So you certainly want to implement it in your own Fanalab configurations.
The DD1 wheelbase is basically a detuned DD2 wheelbase. Having a peak torque of 20Nm instead of the 25Nm the DD2 has. It has a 3 year warranty instead of a 5 year warranty of the DD2. And of course there is a With the DD1 coming in at about As you saw in the closer look they also weigh about the same.
And can deliver all the torque most would ever want. No matter what Podium wheelbase you choose, with the new driver and firmware updates installed, it will give you a very good DD FFB experience.

Now we welcome the Direct Drive era, taking force feedback realism to the next level.
Podium Wheel Base DD1 Vs DD2
Podium wheel bases use an outrunner-type motor engineered from the ground up specifically for sim racing. Instead of using a random industrial motor, our custom motors are tailored without compromise for sim racing. This heavy piece of solid metal is engineered with German precision and built to last for many years.
Comes with standard 3 years warranty! The endless rotation of our direct drive motor inspired the development of a unique solution to transfer data and power to the wheel inputs and displays wirelessly.
This means no USB cables are flying around which can easily get damaged and make it difficult to let the wheel spin in a drift. The Podium DD1 is the first plug-and-play direct drive wheel base, featuring integrated electronics within the main housing. At the front of the housing sits an OLED display.
This provides endless opportunities not only for tuning your wheel base, but also includes features for advanced users, displaying real-time motor and force feedback data. Check the temperatures, torque curves, and avoid force feedback clipping. Too complicated? Just enjoy the graphics. Our proven automotive grade QR has been upgraded with a new locking system, retaining compatibility with all existing Fanatec steering wheels, while also being completely interchangeable.
All new wheel bases and steering wheels will have changeable quick releases; in the future you will have the option to upgrade to a new QR system. In order to operate this product, a compatible Fanatec Wheel Base not included is mandatory!
Replaces the existing shifter paddle and add two more buttons which can be easily accessed for important functions like DRS. Please follow installation instructions respective to your steering wheel.
To prevent collisions do not use this product while ClubSport Static Shifter Paddles optional are installed on your wheel base. Nothing will make you faster than a set of good pedals. We are using the latest and most advanced technology to give you an advantage. The custom made load cell is extremely durable and much more precise as the one in V2. You can apply a realistic and strong pressure and precisely control the brake with muscle tension just like in a real car.
Each axis can be calibrated in the wheel or in the driver. The new D-shape pedal plates and the new pedal extensions now allow to adjust the angle of the pedal plate and the angle of the whole pedal arm.Sounds like you?
Basically, both are the same, their shape and size are identical, the DD2 has a carbon fiber finish and the DD1 all-aluminum housing. Nice smooth, responsive, precise force, good image, quick release mechanism, stable while movement, for real the main difference is in the software that runs a little bit different in the DD2, the torque of DD1 is from 15 to 20 Nm while the DD2 has 18nm of useable torque peaking at 25nm.
The DD podiums series use an outrunner-type motor that was specially designed for them, the magic in this motor is the feeling, because is almost the same as the racing cars using power steering.

He seemed genuinely unbiased, and in his comments he said he felt the Podium was smoother than the Accuforce and that the OSW was just slightly smoother than the Accuforce and suggested I wait until more reviews and comparisons are released.
Now, this could be due to the fact that Fanatec did not spend too much time tuning up the Accuforce or OSW thus inducing a feeling that the Podium was "smoother". I'm looking for some community feedback to help me with my purchase as I'm wondering if I can just go ahead now and buy the Accuforce with no regrets.
And I don't really want to wait until December to buy a first gen product either. Here's how the prices break down.
