Think I've got my G25 dialed in with ffb and the minimum force setting. A problem I'm currently having is just simply not feeling over/under steer, at all. Granted the only car I've driven is the MX-5 Cup Car, but it seems to oversteer under braking or lift, and understeer under throttle. The problem is I don't feel that transition in force feedback. I have played alot of GTR2 and the feedback is amazing in that game and even GT5 isn't so bad in terms of over/under steer feel. So I just need to get used to the iRacing physics I suppose.

The dynamics of the car you describe are of course exactly correct for a properly balanced car.

As far as FFB, it is quite the opposite for me. The physics/graphical engine is really very different than any other game I have played so it took me a long while before it clicked with me, but now it feels just right. I am pretty sure I felt break away transitions right off though...

How strong are you setting the FFB via the driver and in-game? Is it possible that you have it set too high and it is clipping?

Yes the mx-5 is all about carrying speed in Iracing.  No sudden inputs really work in that car.

Don't think I am going to make it too the race tonight,  Neil Young concert took quite a bit outta me last night.  The. I had a lllooong day at work.  I will try and run some laps for a bit.

Anyone going to do any racing this weekend, maybe Friday night?

I'm just on my way home now but I will be at the session. I'm sure I'll be around other days this weekend for iRacing but not sure exactly which. How was the show?

Show was pretty good but you have to be a Niel Young fan to have enjoyed this one.  Luckily  I am.  He made every song last about 20 minutes full of feedback and reverb. He has to be one of the loudest 67 year olds on the planet.  I forgot to wear ear plugs and I was hurting the next day.  He did do a couple of accoustic songs (needle and the damage done and a newer one).

It was a fun show, I went with 8 people that where with me the first time I seen him live in the 80's.

That sounds cool, glad you had a good time. I sort of wondered how loud he was these days. Last time I noticed him was the Year of the Horse movie...

I was doing a little reading on the SR system on the forum. I found this pretty interesting and figured you guys would too.


- When you run off track for what would normally be a 1x, it won't be an incident if you manage to reduce your speed to below 30mph/50kph before going off track. This can be especially handy when the track in front of you is blocked by spun/crashed cars. (Thanks Michael!)
