Description

Fanatec Podium Wheel Base DD2

Ultimate Performance
Introducing the Podium DD2, the ultimate force feedback experience. A breakthrough technology, incredible performance. Quite simply the most advanced direct-drive solution ever.

THE DEFINITIVE DIRECT DRIVE SYSTEM
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. Outstanding acceleration, ultra-low cogging, and exceptional holding torque performance result in a driving experience unlike any other.

GERMAN DESIGN WITH 5 YEARS WARRANTY
The Podium DD2 is the ultimate expression of our direct drive technology, thanks to our robust electronics designed for its extreme torque levels. Engineered with German precision and built to last for many years, the Podium DD2 is suitable for commercial and professional use; this is the last wheelbase you’ll ever need.

Direct Drive Without The Hassle
It’s all in the details. Our thousands of design hours mean that you can just drive and enjoy.

WIRELESS DATA AND POWER
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.

FULLY CERTIFIED, PLUG AND PLAY
The Podium DD2 is the first plug-and-play direct drive wheelbase, featuring integrated electronics within the main housing. It’s as easy to set up as our CSL and ClubSport series products. Rigorous EMI and ESD testing ensure stability and longevity.

Ready for the Future
Not only is the Podium DD2 fully compatible with the existing Fanatec ecosystem, but it’s also prepped for future upgrades.

OLED DISPLAY
At the front of the housing sits an OLED display. This provides endless opportunities not only for tuning your wheelbase, but also includes features for advanced users, displaying real-time motor and force feedback data. Check the temperatures, and torque curves, and avoid force feedback clipping. Too complicated? Just enjoy the graphics.

FULL BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY
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 wheelbases and steering wheels will have changeable quick releases; in the future, you will have the option to upgrade to a new QR system.

Features

  • Custom-designed servo motor designed by our engineers and the first direct-drive motor optimised for racing simulator applications.
  • Outrunner-type motor achieves outstanding peak torque of 25Nm, matching the torque output in most real race cars using power steering.
  • Motor acceleration and speed remain at the highest level, even with heavy steering wheels.
  • Ultra-low torque ripple ensures minimal mechanical distractions and the same smooth experience as in a belt-driven wheel.
  • Wireless QR technology: Wireless transfer of data (infra-red) and power (inductive coupling) between the motor and quick release means no external cables between wheelbase and steering wheel, and no need for batteries inside the wheel.
  • Rotation: 2520 degrees (electronically limited, adjustable).
  • Integrated 2.7” 256×64 resolution OLED display.
  • Podium wheel bases include advanced telemetry features in the OLED display for real-time motor and force feedback data such as power output, FFB clipping and more. (Motor/FFB telemetry pages are for short-term analysis purposes and not for continuous use in racing.)
  • Standard Tuning Menu allows beginners to get started quickly without having to worry about settings
  • Advanced Tuning Menu allows enthusiasts to fine-tune the force feedback characteristics to suit their driving preferences
  • Support for advanced dual-clutch bite-point mode
  • Integrated electronics within wheelbase housing, no external control box required.
  • The integrated electronics and highest quality components ensure ultra-low latency, providing immediate feedback from racing simulators.
  • Fully certified with CE, FCC, C-Tick, ROHS and all other certificates required by law, ensuring that this product does not interfere with other electronic devices.
  • Torque Key allows users to lock/unlock the DD2’s full performance.
  • All existing and upcoming Fanatec peripherals are fully supported. Choose from a growing selection of Fanatec steering wheels in many different styles and price/quality levels.

  • Full Fanatec SDK support ensures game compatibility out of the box for all major racing games across all platforms.
  • Combines with FanaLab software for PC.
    • Connect external devices to the network for displaying telemetry data like speed, lap times, brake temperatures, tachometers and more.
    • Support for major PC racing simulators
    • Control your Upgraded Fanatec Tuning Menu settings and presets directly from the software.
    • Save game-specific settings to PC software, which will be applied when the game is launched.
    • New FFB tuning features, e.g. speed-sensitive dampening.
  • Automotive grade Quick Release system with expandable rubber damper
  • Standard 5 year warranty.
