    They do have a slight roughness to them, it is just a characteristic of the ffb design. However it will be greater if you have the FFB too high and with the right settings shouldn't really notice it too much.

    The wheel doesn't need to be ultra heavy, in fact too higher settings will numb the feedback anyway.

    Thanks,yes definitely a roughness feel,steering feels smooth when the car is not moving so must just be the ffb.Have reducded the ffb a bit and it does feel a bit better.

    The other alternative is the T300RS, which I found to be too squashy and rubbery to feel good with racing cars. The G29 is tighter and a bit more rattly, but comparing them back to back it simulated a rock hard racing suspension better in my imagination. As you say it's due to how the force is transmitted, belts v metal cogwheels.
    Ultimately personal preference, and your G29 may well mellow with age and loosen up a bit.

    FFB should be at 100%, then adjust the Tire Force to about 75-80% (or whatever feels comfortable).

    If you open up the telemetry, are you getting a white line?

    If so, it's a bug. It shouldn't happend. My G27 also feels notchy when that happends.

    Took the wheel back to the shop and got another one,this one feels smoother,hard to describe how notchy the other one was..but I'll try..if you have two cogs that are REALLy tightly meshed then you turn them and you can feel every tooth clicking/grinding and notching together,that's how it felt.Never had a white line with the first wheel but did briefly have a white line with the 2nd wheel last night,then I lowered some car ffb settings and it went away.
    Another thing I'd like to ask thats puzzling me is I see lots of post talking about a logitech profiler with extra settings on it,but I didn't seem to get that when I downloaded the drivers.These are the only settings I get Click image for larger version.

    The G29 uses different/newer software than the G27/G25 (lgs510_x64.exe). You should be good. Glad you got it all sorted now.

    There isn't a profiler with the G29 (nor with the G920), only the pretty useless LGS software, shown in your picture, which basically allows you to swap buttons. In fact, there isn't even a proper driver for these wheels, which leads them to be recognized by Windows as a generic joystick. This explains why they don't work with most racing games on the PC. The issue has been raised at the Logitech forum at least since September, but the company, strangely enough, has never provided a solution or even an explanation for this glaring oversight.
