    FFB feels different after mandatory pitstop

    I'm doing career in Formula B and after my pitstop the FFB feel weird? I first thought it's because of the tyres but it's too much. I get bouncing under braking and turning and it feels like the turn resistance collapse past a certain point?

    Thanks.

    I have noticed the same thing in the Mercedes Benz sls gt3 at any track. It was so bad that along with the rain, I went from 1st to 24th on the last lap at brands hatch! I really hope these bugs get ironed out.

    Just out of interest
    Watch the ffb hud before and after pit stop
    And see if you can notice a difference.

    I have thought a few times from practice to race I can feel a difference but thought it was in my head

    It's not so bad that I can't drive.

    The most annoying part is the inconsistent turn resistance.

    Normally if I turn the wheel there is a constant resistance. After the pit stop the rotation resistance is constant up to a certain point then it is as if it unhooks and turns very easy for the rest of the rotation.
    I'll take a look at the hud next time.

    I'm also experiencing the practice to race ffb change! Its not just in your head.. theres noticeable wheel oscillation on straights during race when the ffb in practice is fine.

    Just curious, have you double-checked to make sure that your tire selection and bar pressures are the same for the pit-stop strategy? Different tires or bar settings will make the FFB feel different.

    I'll check but I didn't change anything, just made the pit stop and went out again?

    I'm using one custom strategy for all cars, which I usually remember to adjust the fuel for each online race. I've noticed that somehow, the pressure of the new tyres is 1.75/1.66 BAR, which will give a much heavier feel than the default 2.20/2.10 BAR in the BMW M3 GT for example.
