    Hi guys,

    I returned to rF2 to test the latest build. I spent the last couple months playing Assetto Corsa, but as I mostly race offline, I need good AI when I want to do some race instead of lapping on random car/track.

    I tried the Nissan GTR and Honda NSX on latest official Silverstone. Great FFB on both, I can feel everything the car is doing. Even I was able to drift the NSX, and I'm horrible at drifting, but as the much improved FFB I can feel very well the car.

    But, the real problem comes when I want to do some laps on the Formula Renault 3.5 2014. I can't feel almost anything. The force is a lot weaker, and can't feel the grip. I managed to increase the FFB multiplier to 1,5x as I read someone suggested, but it doesn't improve much.

    There is a setting I can try to tune in order to get the same feeling I got when driving the GTR and/or the NSX?

    In profiler I set 100,0,0 and 900º. In game I have almost any slider at default, and range at 900º and ticked vehicle default The GTR and NSX I set FFB multiplier at 0.9, but in the FR 3.5 I changed it to 1.5 without considerable improvement.

    Thanks!

    I don't think you'll ever get the FR3.5 '14 driving like you're asking about. I find it difficult too. It helps to run it with the maximum caster it lets you, but that's not a 100% solution.

    Have you tried putting the multiplier higher than 1.5?

    With a Logitech G25 I had the multi up to 2.00 in the 2014 FR3.5 and a high caster setting like April suggested then it started to get better. Not as good as a GTR, but better. You can also play with the minimum force in the controller.json, but I never really liked that, but for a lot of drivers it is a good solution.

    I know what you're talking about but i think thats up to the car itself, got the same problem. I don't like that as well. Even with multiplier 3.0 its not good.

    Thanks to all for the answers.

    The reason I don't go beyond 1.5 multi is the wheel noise and rattle when driving over curbs, seems like it want to get broken :-( and nobody can sleep at the house :))

    I'll try to play with setup (thanks David for the Spa setup) but I don't like to spend hours of trial and error, so may be I skip this car at this moment.

    All open wheelers feel the same? In your experience, what OW car is good at FFB feel with a G27?

    Thank you very much to all of you guys.

    The rattling is reduced with FFB smoothing.
    Its a clue that the fronts are sliding a bit beyond a good slip angle. The G27 with its plastic bearings need FFB smoothing.

    I drove my G25 without any smoothing since the rF2 release and it is still alive :D But the sound is pretty loud, which sucks.

    I remember you telling me that the noise was filling 1/2 the house.

    If you reduce the cambers on your front-tires you will get some of the ffb you are looking for. You can then also scale back the multiplier again.
