View Full Version : G27 spins quite harshly on pc bootup.

The wheel will spin 2 complete rotations hitting the stops hard when I boot up my rig. It will do it twice. Is this normal?
I'm worried it's getting damaged.
Thanks for any input!

If this is normal is I would be putting some resistance on the wheel so that the stop isnt as hard as it sounds

Yes it needs to set itself up to calibrate the full 900 deg of rotation.
I just put on a bit of grip with my hands before it hits the lock so that you don't get that thump.

my pc used to wake randomly from sleep on & off multiple times; i usually kept my wheel plugged in, so this would happen multiple times a day for months.

this is just the wheel calibrating itself & its fine (perhaps best) to let it just do its thing unless it bothers you

Thanks for the responses. I'm worried that the stops being hit so hard might damage the wheel, but I don't think grabbing the wheel during the rotation is a good idea either for calibration purposes..:)

It is quite normal and wont damage the wheel. Mine does it too and after 3 years of use, it is still fine :) If you fancy breaking your thmbs you could grab it....you know for a giggle ;)

The DFGT does the same thing also. It really used to annoy me when I used it to play GT on the PS3. Everytime the game was started it would go through this process which is both a bit noisy and somewhat violent at the stops. I guess this is just what logitech wheels do.

The Fanatec wheels have a power switch on them and they calibrate when you power them on, much less violently as well.

I have a 9 year old G25 which must have gone through calibration thousands of times. It works flawlessly still, so I wouldn't worry about things getting damaged.
