    Hi,

    I've got new pedals (approx one month old). Few days ago I've noticed that I have dead zone on throttle and on brakes.

    On throttle I have dead zone at the beginning of the pedal travel and at the end (check attached diagram). Red line represent the whole pedal travel. Blue line 1 represents where actually throttle activates and blue line 2 represents where throttle "thinks" that it reached its maximum travel.

    This behavior is same in R3R and in AC.

    Any help would help :)

    Thank you!

    P.S. Pedals are connect to computer via Fanatec USB cable converter.

    Did you recalibrate the pedals using the Fanatec tool?

    I had this issue on my old CSR pedals.
    It might be the same. (faulty potentiometers)

    You can try using a tool called I think DI tweak.
    It can adjust between the pedal output and the PC input.
    Free and not hard to use.

    Edit; called DIView and there is also DI Tweak.
    I think I used the first.

    Since the pedals are still new, I've opened a support case at Fanatec. I will let you know how it goes.
    Thank you all for the help!
