Fan-MGT3 Paddles ProComplete replacement throttle/brake paddles for CSL Elite Steering Wheel McLaren GT3

$195.00 $273.00

This product provides fully custom throttle/brake paddles that are even larger than our Fan-MGT3 Extenders while also adding a (removable) progressive brake rubber. They do not leave room for the standard paddle shifters, so be sure to add the shifting kit if you don’t want to repurpose two buttons on the front of the wheel.

Note to console players: The shifting kit is highly recommended even if you use automatic shifting or reassign the buttons because the paddle shifters are often used to navigate menu tabs.

Tool kit: The tools in the tool kit are not required but help to make installation and adjustments easier.

Maximum compatibility

These paddles are a direct replacement for the standard clutch paddles on the Fanatec CSL Elite Steering Wheel McLaren GT3, plugging into the same connectors as the original. Thanks to Fanatec’s inclusion of a brake/throttle mode, these paddles should work in all PC and console games that support Fanatec wheels.

Furthermore, Fanatec’s brake/throttle mode allows you easily to switch on the fly between using hand controls and using foot pedals. You can use the throttle with your foot and the brake with your hand or vice versa. Simply plug a set of Fanatec pedals into the wheel base (rather than directly into your PC’s USB port), and they will operate simultaneously with the SimAbility hand controls.

The brake response is adjusted with a yellow screw. Click to view larger.

Precise, adjustable braking

Using a conical rubber for a progressive feel, the point at which the rubber engages can be adjusted. Compared to our previous products (for Thrustmaster wheels), our new enhanced braking system allows for a larger range of adjustment in both stiffness and travel.

The rubber can also be moved to the other side or removed entirely. Removing the rubber from the brake paddle will remove the progressive, heavier feel. In most cases, that is undesirable, but it could be useful if you do not have enough hand strength to use the rubber.

Note: If you decide to place the rubber on the right side, we can provide an adapter by request to swap the in-game behavior of the paddles. This will be necessary for a select few games (mostly on consoles) that do not allow reassigning the throttle and brake. Just contact us if you would like one.

(Text description)

Two shifting modes

In the “split paddles” configuration, the arrangement of the standard Fanatec product is maintained. Smaller throttle/brake paddle are provided to leave room for the shifting paddles. The paddle shifters can be both pulled and pushed.

In the “large paddles” configuration, pushbutton shifters are provided for the front side of the wheel, allowing you to use the large paddles that came with your Fan-MGT3 Paddles Pro.

If desired, the pushbuttons can be installed even while using the split paddles, allowing for more flexibility.

Note: Using the pushbutton shifters is equivalent to pushing the stock Fanatec paddles. This means that the left button shifts up and the right button shifts down (unless you remap the controls).

Highly adjustable

We provide a wide range of adjustability. For example, the pushbutton shifters can be moved forward and backward.
