    BTW You're running Gain 95 but low Volume values of 20-22. So basically you're doing the same thing, i.e. limiting the strain on your wheel's FFB motor.
    Funny how things work out

    Update for my settings: i turned up up tone to get rid of the bumpyness/notchyness and i have feel and weight at center again. I also have the feel and weight mid corner feeling the tires grip and lateral g's. the only thing now is i feel like i have to turn the wheel a ton to make the car turn, especially in open cockpit gt cars. i dont want to mess with DOR. could this be the steering rack adjustment for each car that is to slow? Thanks

    Set wheel to 900 DOR, calibrate. Then set each cars steering ratio to your liking. Make sure on wheel sensitivity is set to 1 flash also.

    Exactly, I'm limiting the strain on my wheel, it other words, dialing it in. I'm not trying to find a number in which my wheel won't break.

    The whole reason I said anything above 70 gain would not break your wheel. Being a moderator, you should be happy that people who don't have their options limited if they read incorrect info.

    The only thing that will happen when setting gain so low is limit the strength of FFB the game will send. You may get great wheel weight, but horribly curb and bump feel. Then people will crank up FX and another thread will be created saying someone is getting rediculous wheel shake.

    P.S. I couldn't care less what a rep from thrustmaster says. The reps are not engineers. They're not designers. They simply answer calls/emails and respond with whatever their screen tells them. Similar to calling your internet provider. Your modem could be on fire and they'll tell you to first reset it and see if it corrects your issue.

    I find that most cars feel great with a steering ratio of 12 to 13.5. This is a personal preference, but it helps many. Also note, when tuning, if you increase caster or significantly increase camber, you may have to reduce your volume a tad as this will make the wheel feel heavier.

    And how is 'limiting the strain on my wheel' not the same as 'find a number in which my wheel won't break'?

    Perhaps the recommendation from Thrustmaster to limit Gain to 70 makes sure that the wheel does not get strained too much irrespective of the other FFB settings? For you, Gain 95 doesn't strain your wheel too much because you're limiting Volume to 20-22. Someone who prefers Volume 100 with Gain 95 will risk straining the wheel too much. Thrustmaster only refers to Gain, implying that the other values can be freely set with that setting i.e. not limiting their wheel users in the other options. In your case, dialing Volume to 80 with Gain at 95 may have negative consequences for your wheel, so using Gain 95 automatically limits you in your choice of Volume (and maybe other settings).

    The info was correct, it's just you who interprets it wrongly.

    You're talking about the feeling of FFB, which is something completely different that strain on the FFB motor of the wheel (and subject to personal preference, too). Your settings give you an FFB feel that you prefer and also happen to limit strain on the wheel, but have nothing to do with Thrusmaster's recommendation of limiting Gain that will prevent too much strain on the wheel in every situation. Yes, that limits the set-up range of the wheel, but it's a bulletproof containment for their reliability problem.

    I understand you are listening to what you are being told, but I highly doubt you will break the base. BTW I never had issues with my TX, it worked very well. I just wanted to upgrade.

    Okay, I give up lol. You believe whatever you want. I'll believe my years of experience, the thousands of people I've helped, and reality.

    I wish you luck in helping people getting rid of their wheel shake. I will offer no more advice with wheel settings in this forum.

    If anyone does want assistance with their wheel, tunes, etc...feel free to pm me, providing I don't get banned

    I don't know you, but i know i hate your elitist attitude. You obviously have no clue who you're talking to, Sankyo has probably more knowledge about wheels than you will ever have...

    Do you really think we're all going to cry because you won't be helping anymore ??? This is hilarious

    You're still confusing FFB tuning/optimization for personal taste with limiting FFB output for hardware preservation.
