Superb feeling from TX wheel after 1.4, but after 4 or 5 laps usually right as i cross the start / finish the ffb slowly drops off lap after lap until their is virtually none. Go back to pits and drive out again, it happens again. Did all the resets and cache clears.. Didn't help. When will i not have to hard reset, clear cache,and reboot ect....all time just to enjoy?

Maybe the wheel os overheating. Tx wheel reduções the ffb if it is too hot.

Don't think so, cause I can go straight back to pit and then leave right back out and ffb is good again. Couple laps later drops off again

Has your wheel FFB performance improved patch 1.4 & the new Thrustmaster firmware V49?

Maybe your tires got worn too fast. And the wheel transfers the feel of loosing traction. Just guessing. Mine works perfectly.

The tyres won't 'wear' but their performance will still vary as the temps change. If you are starting with optimum tyres they will tend to go off after a couple of laps. If you are starting on cold tyres there will be a marked performance variation as they gather temperature with use. The quality and character of the FFB is directly related to the state of the tyres. Also if you are over driving and overheating your tyres they will noticeably lose grip and feedback detail.

use the HUD "FFB" page, do you still see the game generating signals in the graph? Sounds to me your wheel is fine though.

Ride some kerbs at Road America and you should definitely get some FFB, I think Road America or the laser-scanned tracks (Brands Hatch, Oulton Park) are the best to test out your FFB.

The tyres still have loads of grip, car still handles the same. It just feels like all the tyre forces are gone.
