Gran Turismo DD Pro Wheel Base (8 Nm)

The Gran Turismo DD Pro Wheel Base is the epitome of direct drive at an affordable pricing for PlayStation users. With the 8 Nm of peak torque, the wheelbase produces balanced strong force feedback that has a combination of strength, smoothness and mechanical feel.

Performance

The Gran Turismo DD Pro Wheel Base (8 Nm) is a direct drive wheelbase. When the steering wheel is directly mounted to the motor shaft, there is no belt or gear drive to dilute the force feedback effects. The Gran Turismo DD Pro Wheel Base package comes with the Boost Kit 180, a powerful 180W power supply that unlocks the full potential of the direct drive motor. The force feedback is truly incredible as you will be able to feel the subtle cues clearly, leading to a more consistent drive overall.

The wheelbase is officially licensed for PlayStation®5 consoles and PlayStation®4 consoles and is compatible with the entire Fanatec ecosystem, meaning that you will be able to attach any steering wheel to the wheelbase. For those who are interested in GT3 racing, we highly recommend either the McLaren GT3 V2 Steering Wheel or Podium Steering Wheel BMW M4 GT3. Alternatively, if you are a formula car racer then we highly recommend the ClubSport Formula V2.5 Steering Wheel. From a game compatibility perspective, the wheelbase has full Fanatec SDK support, ensuring that majority of racing games are supported right out the box.

The Gran Turismo DD Pro Wheel Base (8 Nm) is a fan-less design where high levels of torque can be sustained without the need for active cooling. This is achievable through the CNC-machined aluminum which acts as the structural chassis as well as the heat sink. It’s remarkable how quiet and cool the wheel base can stay during intense racing.
