    When turning right in every game a clatter sound surprise me often (most of the time). Every other thing with it it's great. Upgraded from a DFGT and I'm honestly happy with the pedals. But returning to the main topic and most important question:

    I saw on many forums that this rattle when turning right is normal and appears to happen in most g27's. The thing is... should I worry about it? Is it going to break in any moment because this clatter?

    Thx for reading and happy new year to all there!

    To make it feel more safe, I set my FFB much lower than 100% in the games.

    In Profiler I set the overall strength to 107%, but the other settings at 0%, including centering spring.

    Then in-game it's set to about 25-35%.

    Yea, the G25/27's have that clacking sound when turning sharply or going over curbs. It has to do with the mechanical stops inside the wheel base. Its normal but its one of the main reasons I sold my G27, just too noisy for me.

    But it'll break from that? I'm worried that one time instead of a clack I hear a crack.

    The G27 is very durable, people usually get at least 3-5 years out of them.
