View Full Version : Brake Inconsistencies

Since the latest patch myself and a few others in our Leagues are struggling with brake inconsistencies;

None of us are overheating the brakes and are keeping them in the perfect operating temps but from one corner to the next we either get a long or short pedal. This is very frustrating for close racing as it means either rear ending someone or braking way to early to avoid being labelled as a dirty racer.

At first I thought SMS had introduced pad knock off to the game but even if i tapped the brakes to push the pads back to the disc just before applying the brakes fully in the braking zone, it made no difference. I then thought it was my pedals so I stripped, examined and cleaned them with no noticeable faults. However, when more and more people started suffering with the same problem, the penny dropped it was a potential issue with the game.


Platform - PS4
Wheel and Pedals - Logitec G29
Re calibrated - Many times
Hardware update - N/A for PS4
Cars mainly affected - Tin Tops (V8 Supercars, TCC, Ginettas)


Is anyone else with other wheels or even pads having this same issue?

No sutch with my pad

I'm trying to improve the brake sensation with a potentiometer brake as well (braking with a controller is no issue)... so far my best results are the following

-- dropping the gain way low to avoid having crazy ffb reactions that always unbalance the cars under heavy breaking
-- brake pedal sensitivity 50 with 0 deadzone
-- drop the car brake strength to 75-80% in the tune

I have not experienced this issue personally and whilst I don't really run the Supercars I have done plenty of races in the Ginettas for example.
