    Fanatec CSWB 2.5

    I have the CSWB 2.5 installed since January 15th. I have set 214 TT #1's since I started using the wheel. Really impressed with it overall and appreciate all the help from the forum experts.

    I am actually doing much better at posting 2nd and 3rd place times I have been able to drive cars better that I did poorly with before. I managed to snap off the bracket on 1 of the pods of the universal hub, zip tied it to the wheel rim, it's actually easier to reach the buttons now. I am still having problems posting, don't know why.

    Has any 1 else Here read the Fact page on the v2.5??? Really Nice Changes were Made... Its up on the Fanatec web site.
    Biggest Change was the Motor is Now Drag Free like a DD wheel Due to Tec advancement.

    I must say the Very Low Drag that the v2.5 New FFB motor has is Really a Big improvement...It makes a Nice Difference in Subtle FFB Feel!!!
    Also you can Now Feel the Progressive wheel weight as you turn wheel from TDC that you couldnt feel with Pcars before...It makes the wheel feel even stronger Now but according to the fact sheet its still 8NM same as v2.

    I Guess the prigressive Feel was getting Drownd out by the FFB motor Wheel Drag.

    I came from a really beat up G25 to the Fanatec v2.5 so I don't have a reference for the improvements from the v2.0. I had read forum posts that assumed if you were a good enough driver/setup specialist that there would not be a huge improvement with the new wheel technology but thankfully I am such a novice/idiot that the difference this wheel makes is huge. At first I was worried because I was so much slower with the v2.5 but after a couple of adjustments to the FFB I made what for me is fantastic progress. I haven't even begun to utilize your adjustments GrimeyDog so I look forward to further progress.

    My Lap Times Have improved also .300 --->500 easily!!! Its soo Much easier to be consistent Now with the v2.5.... The V2 is a Great wheel also But you Never Realize How Much the Wheel Drag affects your Driving until you use a wheel that dies Not have any Drag.... Very Nice upgrade... From V2 to V2.5... your coming from a Logitec so the upgrade is Huge!!! performance Gains will be Very Notable.

    Follow the link in My Signature... the down loads are at the Bottom of 1st post.
    I posted a Tweeker file Down Load it... The Tweeker file is used the same as JS tweeker file...Pics and Instructions are also in there how to install.... Also NEW PDF inside tweeker file Download with the Global and wheel settings.... as well as in Car Settings just incase you want to plug the settings in car by car.

    Down load Tweeker File and test... I will be on My PC in 1 hour or so.... Post back and let Me know how you are getting along and i can help you.

    The settings are super easy and user Friendly when you plug them in.... Make sure you plug in the Exact Global settings... Thats where all the Majic is.

    There are a few ways you can tweek the settings

    1)If you choose to use the PDF to test/tweek each car individually remember you can adjust the FFB strength of each car + or - with the in car masters until it feels right for you The masters can be used at max 200 with no clipping

    Note: TF= Global spindle master scale!!!(<---Master for the in car masters) This means that In Car Masters 50,100 or 200 to--> TF 75= 75 Higher masters just add more saturation of FFB forces...Lower masters reduce FFB Feel and saturation.

    after you find you sweet spot then later on you can Edit the tweeker file if you choose and adjust the masters accordingly.

    2) you like the feel of the settings as is with tweeker file but you want more curb rumble set RAC 80-->85 Do Not exceed RAC 85 this will put you in the clipping Zone!!!... RAC 75 Curb feel is good but you you Only want more wheel weight set TF to 80, you want more wheel weight and Curb feel set TF and RAC 80.

    I recommend to start with on wheel FFB @50% and + or - as needed if needed to find your sweet spot.
