CSR Elite - Community testers wanted! UPDATE 3



We already started the beta tests but we need some more people to help us testing the product and also to make a review about the products for your community.

Here are the specific requirements:

  • Needs to be able to test on Xbox 360 and PS3
  • Bonus if you can also test on PC
  • Needs to be able to write a written review or video review
  • EU, Japan and USA participants only
  • Minimum age: 21

Basic rules

  • Please report all issues to Darin
  • Test period: Until October 15th
  • After the test period you can send back the wheel or purchase it with a 50% discount
  • Shipping costs will be covered by Endor
  • Of course we will give no guidelines what you write in your review. You don't have to be a fanboy to get the chance to test it.
  • Embargo: You are not allowed to publish anything about this wheel until October 15th
  • We will store your credit card information as deposit.

If you are interested, please follow the next steps:

  • Please register here if you are not registered already: http://www.911wheel.de/?q=node/1154

    Tell my why you would be the perfect tester


The beta test for the CSW will follow as well but quantities are very limited.

UPDATE:

If you cannot register anymore it means that you probably are already registered. It is only possible to register one time. But this does not mean you cannot participate in several tests of course.

 

UPDATE 2: 

Thanks for the tremendous response. We only have a very few wheels available but the enourmous amount of interest convinced me to make a second round with more testers. Keep posting.

 

UPDATE 3:

Thanks for the great interest. We have now selected testers and will notify them soon.

Those are just the ones I activly post in theres more thats I'm always on just never really post.

Tell my why you would be the perfect tester:

I have been a racing fan all my life and been sim racing since 1994 at the age 4 starting with NASCAR Racing. Since then I have been an avid sim racer racing anything from the more arcade games like test drive,Driver and the earlier need for speed games to the simulators like Iracing.com, Grand Turismo, Forza Motorsport, rFactor, and even though its old, the still very popular NR2003. I have used and tested so many different wheels through my 17 years of Racing I lost count years ago of how many I have used but I know what makes a wheel a good one. My current racing habbits are pretty good, the least amount of time I spend racing a day is about 2 hours for my league races which is a different one every day of the week, but I'm usually playng FM3,GT5,rFactor or Iracing when I'm not league racing so I'm sure I will give it a really good workout. Also I have beta tested games and other products so I do have experience in beta testing as well. So thats my backstory and why I think I would be a good beta tester for this wheel, I might not be one of the best picks if having reviews and things like that if its high on the list of requirements for the tester as I never have done one but have the ability and items to do so, but I have alot of friends that race and have help many of them pick the right wheel for them. I really hope that I get the great chance you guys are giving people and allow me to be one of the beta tester.

Hey Thomas, when I try to access the link it says "access denied". It may be a problem with my account. I am 21 so I don't get why it is not letting me through. Anyways just in case it never works here is my information:

Composition and timing. My youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/paskowitz?feature=mhee) has 500k+ views from only a couple of videos. Why? Timing and effort. When I released my first GT5 videos they were when the game was at its peak. Since they were high quality their presence spread. When I do a video review, I will make sure to give it the same attention I have my other videos, weekends with Adobe Pr. I will also apply my above average writing skills. I cannot remember a term when I got anything below an A- in any form of English or communications class. In addition, I have had numerous experiences with professional writing in the business world through my internships. I will apply my knowledge of writing to an audience and clearly expressing a point in my review.

Second reason, I have plenty of time on my hands. I am currently interning in NY and when I get home, my time will be dedicated to making the best analysis of the CSRE wheel.

Third. I would like to spread the word about Fanatec. In my local area there is a indoor karting track, NYGP. Since I am familiar with the staff, if the CSRE is great I can suggest them buying a set up. Their current one is very out of dated (DFP w/ GT4).

Sixth, I love sim racing. It has single-handedly taken over my gaming life. Primarily, I play GT5 and Forza 3. But Richard Burns Rally remains one of my favorite gaming experiences. It is a view into a real world life I want to achieve, but realistically may never get to. Being able to BETA test a CSRE wheel would be a great honor.

Thank you for your consideration.

Well I would like to test the new wheels out and compare them to the current GT2 wheel which I have and have used for the last 6 months playing F1 2010.

I play for 1-4 hours a day, and I'm currently 1 of the fasteset on Xbox for F1 2010 and hold many number 1 times on the Leaderboards. Video of my times. http://youtu.be/ctLKsE2Ta10

I will be again playing F1 2011 when it comes out, and the new Forza4 when released. I'm a extensive user of the wheel and pedals so I feel I could be a good tester for long turm and high use for any issues the may arise and long term wear on wheels. Thanks for your time and consideration.

I would appreciate the chance to beta test the CSR Elite, provide feedback and report any findings back. I have enjoyed racing on all consoles and now I’m very active with iRacing on PC. I am familiar with beta testing procedures as I’ve beta tested products in the past and provided the manufactures with feedback and information on their product.

Thank you for the opportunity.

Although I'm not a really active member in the community i would really like the opportunity to review your product as i am an avid racer and take it really seriously. I'm a huge car fanatic and have fell in love with the PWTS since day 1 that i have had it.. If given the opportunity i will post very detailed reviews expressing my experiences with the product. i consider myself a very good racer that can help exploit problems and help out with any kinks and also point out the strong points of any product. I can review many games in many systems and if given the chance will become a lot more active in the community considering the circumstances

Thanks

Example some of the early titles i played around with are :

Gran Tourismo, Toca, Vrally, WRC, F1 99-02, Collin McRae, GTR, GTR2, rFactor, NetKar pro, Race07 series and many more.

This time i have my own Cockpit with G27 where i can handling cars professional.

Forums where i most active today are NoGrip and the some of my personal work is a FFB MENUE for GTR2

Thats one of the things why i understand many of feeling on FFB and how it must feel.

Why im one of the best tester for something like this nice Wheel is that im work a long time on cars and hightec.

I would do a written review (probably on gtrp.de in German and grplanet.net in English) and also upload some youtube videos - so far I have not done any reviews recently but several years ago some friends and I produced a video game show on our local TV station ('Offener Kanal'). Nothing big at all, but quite a few people liked it. :)

I currently own the PWTS with Clubsport pedals. Before, I also had the Logitech G25, the Driving Force GT and the Microsoft Wheel.

When doing a review I would mainly focus on console gaming. I'd also like to point out how the wheel works with the same game on different consoles AND where the CSR Elite stands compared to the PWTS/GT2 (a good friend of mine who worked with me at the video game broadcast recently bought the 911 GT2 so we could use this one too as we both love to check out & compare games and different hardware).
I could borrow the T500 RS from a friend if people are interested in a comparison between CSR E and T500 - GT2 - PWTS (and the official Microsoft Wheel).

Why the same games on different consoles?
Because there sometimes are console specific things that can make the enjoyment quite different even if it's the same game - just depending on what platform you play it.

Let's take for example 'Sega Rally'. On PS3 this game is a great arcade-like ride with incredible force feedback effects that perfectly emphasize the rutting. You can feel every rut individually.

On Xbox 360 it is a completely different thing. If you play it with the same wheel here (i.e. PWTS) you will be disappointed how bad the force feedback effects are. The wheel ruts evoke only some (weak) rumble effects and FF is far less differenciated than on PS3.
If people would play this game on PS3 with some cheap wheel the enjoyment might be even higher than with a high-end wheel like the PWTS on Xbox 360 and thats only the game's fault, not the wheel's.
(At least, thanks to the tuning options of the PWTS's firmware, you can still get a lot of fun out of the game even on Xbox 360.)

But if you play 'Sega Rally' on PS3 with a cheap wheel and test it with the PWTS on the same machine afterwards THEN you would see that the PWTS really is superior compared to many other wheels.

By the way I own pretty much every racing game available for at least one console (even PSN/XBLA exclusives like OutRun or the brandnew Sega Rally Online Arcade) but I also bought quite a few games for two console systems just because they feel different (and if needed I can easily borrow those few games that I don't possess for two consoles from my local rental store which is just round the corner).

So in case that I will be one of the lucky few who get the chance to do an early (p)review of the CSR Elite I can definitely assure you that the games & compatibility list will definitely be huge - I am very confident that you won't miss even a single (console) game in that list. :)
Maybe this compatibility list (including any issues found durung testing as well as the settings used) could also be helpful for the new website (i.e. support section)?!

Many greetings.

PS3 / Xbox 360 / High-end PC / currently have 2 Fanatec wheels and 2 CSPs.

No public reviews but I spread a lot of word of mouth to the drivers I know. If chosen I would write a review for both of the forums I visit and possibly make a YouTube review as well.

Most active in the iRacing and Forza forums. I drive all the cars in iRacing so I'm active in all the various sub forums too.

I am the perfect tester because I have two important ingredients: Time and experience. My experience includes 30 years of digital driving and 4 years as a professional beta tester for SEGA. I have tested wheels and driving games in the past and know how to push the hardware and software to its limit in the hunt for bugs.

The other key to being a perfect tester is time. I currently spend 25 or more hours a week driving in sims. Therefore I would put in close to 100+ hours of testing a month.

Combine that with excellent communication skills and you have yourself a perfect tester.

Cheers and good luck with the new product launch!

Tell my why you would be the perfect tester -

I studied Product Design for 2 years at Cardiff University, where I learned words like kinesthetic tactile feedback (I never thought I would get a chance to use that word).
I have been a racing game fan since I can remember, and have played just about every racing game out there. I am a very quick racer, not too bad in a kart too, and would always post times in the top 1% in the Forza series, top ten times in the PGR series and usually winning the forum Time Trials events that are run.
I will be able to test the wheel on many surfaces and stands, one of which I built myself. The only wheels I own are by Logitech and Microsoft, so it would be great to be able to compare your Product against theirs.
I have a high quality DSLR camera and a slight case of OCD, so don't worry, your wheel will look fantastic in my pics.

Thankyou

I own many sims (Race Series, iRacing (100%), GPL, LFS, NetKar Pro, plus many more, as well as GT5 on the PS3 and will own F1 2011 and Forza 4). I have lots of experience in sims and have been playing driving since I was about 5 (so 16 years). I've owned probably 15 different steering wheels from all sorts of different manufacturers. I feel that I'm capable of explaining what I feel in the device in detail, and know what to look and feel for in the feedback given by the wheel. I've also been fast in nearly every game I've played (many records on Xbox games; Forza series, PGR series as well as iRacing and GPL). I'm also a fairly technical person and would be able to diagnose any issues that came about.

Hopefully you will see me fit for duty.

I've not written any reviews in a public forum but will often review/recommend the products I own (G25 and G27) in the private iRacing General and Club England forums as this is where I'm most active.

Having owned both G25 and G27s I'm well placed to test/review the CSR Elite and how they compare to these products. I'm an avid Forza 3, GT5 and iRacing sim-racer, with a road iRating of over 4200 (25th in the UK). I represented the UK at the Electronic Sports World Cup a few years back and always compete at the highest level at every racing game I own. I have a great knowledge of what makes a good sim-level racing wheel and while providing clear/concise feedback during the testing phase I would also be fair and honest in any review I write.

I request to be a beta

I request to be a beta tester for the new CSR Elite wheel. I own and drive games on the Xbox360, PC, and PS3. I use a hydraulic game seat and a 140" 1080p projector. I am 41 years old and have been using racing games since I was a kid. I have owned several wheels and will give a fair and comprehensive review of your product. I am also a certified Microsoft Beta tester for Microsoft products and have several years experience as a race car driver. I live in the USA and speak English. Thank you for your consideration and I hope to hear from your company soon. Sincerely, Charles Messina

Tell my why you would be the perfect tester: Most importantly, I am on vacation from 15 September to 15 October so I can spend plenty of time testing.

1. I am a U.S. Army simulation officer. I assess input devices for government acquisition as part of my job. I have earned a Masters in Modeling, Virtual Environments, and Simulation. So, I have significant experience with professional and deliberate testing methods

2. I am an avid sim racer. For PC, I own every serious race title (iRacing, rFactor, RBR, netKar Pro, LFS, reiza SC, etc.) so I can test the wheel in everything out there. For PS3, I also own several titles including GT5, F12010, Dirt series, and the latest NASCAR. For 360, I own all the Forza series and
the Shift series.

3. I have owned and currently own a myriad of wheels. I used a G27 for several years before I purchased a GT2 with CS pedals most recently. I also own a T500RS. This will allow me to compare and contrast features.

4. I will offer the Fanatec team a mature and honest perspective in order to allow them to excel with this release. I applaud Darin and the company for coming up with this innovative solution to ensure QA/QC.

Why should we select you for the beta test?:
I feel that almost all of my free time is spent playing a few select racing games as hard as I can. Even though I'm active on only forum I give any advice that I can. At the same time only being a member of 1 forum gives me more time to tweak my wheel and setting to get the most out of it.While doing so I have the knowledge and understanding to pass on any help that I can to other when they are asking. I also can feel the differences from game to game on multi platforms and farther expand on how the setting affect the wheel. This understanding also helps me refine the setting even more and gives me a better understand of what is going inside the wheel.

Consoles Owned: X360 and PS3 (I have also owned at some point just about every system going all the way back to the original NES)

PC: Hand built custom watercooled dual GTX480 setup as seen here: http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/~layte/pics/480-tape-lol.jpg (yes the packing tape is a very important structural component..)

I've not written any specific reviews before. I prefer to put across my views on games and hardware on the forum: http://www.rllmukforum.com where I am an active participant (over 15000 posts) and which has an active and passionate racing fanbase (mainly console based but a smattering of PC gaming as well). Who I am sure would love to hear about the new and upcoming 360 compatible wheel.

As for why I would be the perfect tester.. I'm not sure, I'm not a reviewer, but I am a huge fan of racing titles and I would love the opportunity to help test and improve the next generation of wheel, not only for myself, but for everyone else who enjoys racing.

Tell my why you would be the perfect tester
Bachelors of Science in Information Technology
6+ years professional experience in QA, Business Analysis, Software Development, Project Management
My approach to testing the product would be to first define the business needs for a customer, Spec out those needs into requirements, design test cases to cover each requirement with expected results, and then execute each test comparing actual results to expected, logging defects against any discrepancies.
I can effectively track and report my results in whatever form is preferred, which will benefit response teams as they address reported issues.

I also have experience with previous fanatec wheel hardware, having replaced the steering sensor in a GT2 wheel from written instructions.
I own a digital SLR camera and can take high quality photos / videos. I have video editing experience as well.

In my past experience with Fanatec, I have worked well with the customer service and shipping divisions, despite the original issues I had with the product's arrival and performance. (The GT2 wheel has performed wonderfully since replacing the sensor, clubsport pedals have always been perfect. I cancelled backorder shipment of the shifter set to wait for clubsport shifter.) I am very interested now as I was then, in helping the company improve on not only delivering the most superior product, but also the superior customer experience.

I haven't written any reviews, but I do have excellent written and communication skills which are necessary for my work. I have been a private beta tester for many video games and some software developers. I have provided direct feedback so I am unable to provide you with a link to my previous work/comments.

I absolutely love racing and for every gaming system since the Nintendo 64 I have owned a wheel to race with. I currently own the Logitech G25 and G27 for PS3 and PC use. I also own the official Microsoft racing wheel for use with the Xbox 360. The games/sims I play on a regular basis are F1 2010, Dirt 3, iRacing, GTR2, NFS Shift 2 among others. I have wanted to get a Fanatec wheel, and was absolutely blown away when I heard about the CSR Elite and would love the opportunity to test it for you. While I don't have any direct links to show you, I hope this post is indicative of the well written feedback and responses I can provide you with. Best of luck finding CSR Elite testers.

Forums you are most active in : NeoGAF by far (created most of the FM4 threads there, participate to GT5 online races), Forzamotorsport.net, GTP, Forzamotorsport.fr
Tell my why you would be the perfect tester : I have a lot of experience in writing reviews and I could write both in English and in French so that you reach a broader audience. I have access to an HD camcorder and to an HD capture card to make videos of the wheel along lots of racing games on HD consoles (I would publish them on http://www.taxigamer.com/ ). I can also take lots of high-res photos with a DSLR. I have participated in many closed betas in recent years (AutoClubRevolution, Age Of Empires Online, Xbox dashboard, etc...) so I know how these works and how you need to give feedback. I probably didn't play with as many wheels as some have but I do have some experience with a Microsoft wheel and a lot with Logitech's DFP on the PS3 and PC. This may allow me to take a different look at the wheel compared to people who have owned many wheels over the past years.

Thanks,

Guillaume aka Mc Kane aka G Rom (on Neogaf)
