    PS4 - Horrible steering wheel shake after update and Spirit of Le Mans pack

    Hi all,
    Sorry if this has been discussed before but I couldn't find a concrete answer.

    I just did the latest update and bought the spirit of Le Mans pack. The cars are unbearable down the straights and the force feedback starts shaking in my hands. If I let go, the car immediately goes off track.

    At first I thought my steering wheel was broken but I put in GT Sport and the wheel was fine. The wheel is a Logitech G29

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    What can I do to correct?

    thanks everyone!

    Don’t let go of the wheel.

    Don’t hold the wheel with a feather light touch like you do with your street car.

    I’ve driven the Ferrari 512 and the R18 on it so far. Nothing so “horrible” or “unbearable” down the straights.

    There’s a bit of ffb chatter, but nothing exciting.

    See my settings below.

    What cars have you tried and what are your ffb settings?
    -10 for gain and volume should suffice.

    What tire compound were you using?
    What was your tire pressure?
    What was the track and tire temperatures?

    Hi I also have the same problem when driving the new LMP1 2016 cars after a few laps, I posted about it in the PS4 Post 6.0 discussion thread and it is affecting a few people. I did an endurance race driving the Porsche 917LH and I was not a problem, however driving the Porsche 919 it was unbearable and I just quit the race because it was so unrealistic. Which car were you driving? I'm also using the same wheel as you

    The torque steer feel of the wheel driving the r18 and 919, when you get on the boost is amazing. Feels exactly like a FWD/AWD car scrabbling for front tire grip.

    What’s unrealistic?
    I’ve driven the 919, R18 and the TS050 in the game. And the 512 once.
    What’s the problem?

    The longest race I’ve done so far is 6 laps in the 2016 cars.

    I was doing a 2 hour race and the vibration started after about 15/20 mins on the straights, the wheel would randomly vibrate intermittently. Try driving in the Porsche 919 at Le Mans for about 20 mins in an endurance race and you'll notice it.

    6 laps. In each of them (except the high df R18).

    Tire and fuel on. Full damage. Mech failure on.

    “Endurance” or sprint, ffb is the same.

    So you’ve been asked a few times now, what are your ffb settings? Have you calibrated your wheel correctly for max rotation?

    Could be from tire wear.
    Were your tires changed during the pit stop?

    I have done. No “random intermittent vibrations.”

    I am aware that the ffb does not change depending on the length of the race, and yes I followed a youtube tutorial to calibrate the wheel for max rotation. I am not able to view my exact ffb settings right now and will post them when I have chance to go on the game. However I find it odd that only these specific cars are causing the issue when even the standard LMP1 cars don't cause me any unusual wheel vibrations.

    Yes tyres were changed at the pit stop.

    As I said to another comment earlier, I will try again when I can and see if it happens again. If it does I will try to post more specific information if possible.
