One of the major manufacturer on the market or the newcomer, who win the race when it comes to the sim racing pedals? Unlike the racing wheels, you don’t have too much racing pedals to choose. FANATEC has three options, while MOZA Racing has only two racing pedals to offer. So which one to choose?
FANATEC CSL Pedals will not take part in this review because we want to compare the budget and premium options from both manufacturers.
FANATEC ClubSport Pedals V3 vs MOZA SR-P Pedals
FANATEC ClubSport Pedals V3 are an excellent pedal set and great value for the price. The 90 kilograms adjustable and custom made load cell is extremely durable on these pedals. You can apply a realistic and strong pressure, and precisely control the brake with muscle tension, just like in a real car.
There is no denying the quality build of the ClubSport V3 pedals. All metal construction, fantastic appearance with black anodizing and red highlights. What really sets them apart from other pedals is the super simple adjustment on the brake pedal.
FANATEC ClubSport Pedals V3 is the cheaper FANATEC’s option but still a solid racing pedals.
The MOZA SR-P pedals utilize pressure sensors with a maximum range of 75 kilograms, which is sufficient for most users. A driver can obtain the ideal breaking force by controlling the amount of pressure applied on the breaking pedal.
The plates of SR-P Pedals are made of aluminum alloy and the rest is made from steel. These solid pedals make your rig look quite stunning. The pedals are well-built, easy to set up, smooth and robust while in use. They offer some customization possibilities also.
The accelerator is the largest of the three faces, and it’s smooth and accurate, with a firm but not difficult resistance. Like the accelerator, the travel of clutch pedal travel is smooth, and the resistance is firm enough to feel realistic resistance. It’s also light enough to allow you to easily apply the correct amount of travel.
There isn’t really much that separates these two pedals when it comes to performance. However, ClubSport Pedals V3 have a 15 kg stronger pressure sensor and that is a strong advantage. On the other hand, MOZA SR-P Pedals are 160.00 EUR cheaper if you take a clutch with them. The 239.00 EUR price of MOZA SR-P Pedals is not it’s final price. You should also consider the shipping costs and taxes.
For example, as soon as you buy a product from a non-EU country, then effectively you become an importer and become liable to VAT payments. The amount of VAT depends on the country to which the product is delivered. Since the VAT in Croatia is 25% the MOZA SR-P will cost you additional 59.75 EUR. Despite the higher price, we would still recommend ClubSport Pedals V3.

FANATEC ClubSport Pedals V3 Inverted vs MOZA CRP Pedals
The custom-made load cell is extremely durable on FANATEC ClubSport Pedals V3 Inverted and much more precise than the one used in the FANATEC’s previous generation. You can apply realistic, strong pressure and precisely control the brake with muscle tension just like in a real car.
However, ClubSport Pedals V3 Inverted have the same sensor pressure of 90 kg as ClubSport Pedals V3. So where’s the difference to their’s predecessor
The clutch and brake pivot points are inverted to the upper side of the pedals, attached to a very solid frame, just like in the real world cars. The longer pedal travels and the pedal distances are inspired by real cars in every detail.
These pedals come equipped with a resistance-adjustable ClubSport Damper Kit, mounted and ready to use on the brake pedal. In combination with the tool-less adjustment of the brake resistance (as in the V3 pedals) this pedal set delivers pure realism right out of the box!
The MOZA CRP Pedals are primarily made of CNC aluminum alloy, offering drivers a solid, sturdy and reliable platform that can easily withstand heavy braking or the quickest foot work.
The CRP 3-stage clutch offers a serious advantage to ensure drivers get the best possible launch. The first stage provides low resistance, with a sharp increase in the second stage, simulating a clutch disc spring. The final third stage has a clear resistance drop off, to ensure consistency for every race start.
Both FANATEC ClubSport V3 Pedals Inverted and MOZA CRP Pedals are made of aluminum alloy. They both use load cell technology. So where’s the difference?
In this case, MOZA CRP Pedals have a 10 kg stronger pressure sensor and are still 100.00 EUR cheaper. But when you include a VAT and shipping costs the price is almost even between those two. Although they still can’t compare with the pedals like Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Ultimate+, we would strongly recommend both of them with a slight advantage to the MOZA CRP Pedals.

Fanatec has multiple sites around the world to avoid this issue. But on the other hand there are countries with different laws and different taxes and therefore you first have to check with your local Tax office if the product is going to be taxed or not after all costs.
“For example, as soon as you buy a product from a non-EU country, then effectively you become an importer and become liable to VAT payments. The amount of VAT depends on the country to which the product is delivered.”
Isn’t that the case with Fanatec, too? Guess Fanatec is not free of shipping costs, taxes and fees when importing, like any other good from abroad. VAT and taxes is even higher because of the higher price.
