The new Fanatec CSR wheel features an aluminum face, but the rim is mostly plastic.

Forza Motorsport iconography marks this wheel's compatibility with the Xbox 360 game, but this wheel can also be used with PCs, Macs, and the Playstation 3.

The unit's strong force feedback motors are housed in the glossy black body.

The older Porsche 911 Turbo wheel featured inferior buttons, but I liked that the entire wheel was wrapped in a soft faux-leather.

The CSR wheel's buttons are laid out intuitively and fall nicely under the thumb.

The older wheel's buttons are plasticky and are forced into odd positions by the Porsche wheel's design.

Both wheels feature LED displays where wheel performance parameters can be adjusted on-the-fly.

The wheel connects wirelessly to the Xbox 360 console in the same manner as any other controller.

Beefy aluminum paddle shifters feel like they could take a beating.

The older wheel's paddles are just small metal tabs and don't travel very far when pressed.

The CSR shifter set ships with both an H-pattern (left) and a sequential (right) shifter.

The old H-pattern shifter was my least favorite part of the combo. The new units don't improve tremendously.

Users attach the shifters to the body of the wheel on this two-rail mounting system. When shifting quickly, this whole assembly can rotate quite a bit, contributing to the inaccuracy of the shifter.

If I had to upgrade any one component of my old system, it would be the pedal set.

The CSR Elite pedals were a treat to use and represent the single biggest jump in quality over my old pedals.

The old pedal set looks like a toy when compared to the Elite.

The heavy CSR Elite pedal set stood its ground even when pressed with my full strength. I also liked that each pedal could be adjusted and repositioned with simple hand tools.
