    Issue with thrustmaster tx 458

    So each race starts out with good force feedback but after about 10mins of driving the feedback becomes very weak. It doesnt go away entirely just weakens significantly.

    Anyone have a fix for this?

    Does the FFB graph show weaker FFB too?
    My G27 does a similar thing but the widget is still showing the occasional clipping for me.
    Overheating FFB motors maybe?

    Yes it does. The bars barely move.

    My first thought was overheating as well.

    Does it come suddenly or does the FFB decrease steadily?
    Are your tires overheating?

    It comes sorta gradually. Maybe over the course of a min or two.

    Tires are always within optimal range.

    Your wheel is overheating. It will dial down the ffb to prevent damage.Its designed to do this so don’t worry. You need to install the latest wheel firmware to the wheel with ‘forced cooling’ mode enabled. This will leave the wheel fans on permanently and you will be able race with no fading. Hook up your wheel to a pc and download the firmware from thrustmaster.

    The updater never worked for me either, I downloaded and installed it manually.

    First you have to update/download the correct drivers, you find them on the official TM forum (Package 2017_TTRS_7). After doing this you can update the correct firmware.
