Fanatec CSR Pedals losing calibration-solution

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    There is a pretty common problem with the Fanatec CSR standard pedals.
    The pedal set send little spikes of input to the game and it auto calibrates full throttle wrongly.
    Result is that your full press of the pedal starts to five you less and less throttle. Very annoying in a race.
    The quick work around is to re set maximum in game at about 80% of full pedal travel. Still not optimal as you then have less pedal travel and your brain has to recalibrate your foot travel. You are also left with these little spikes in throttle and brake levels. You can see them when in controller settings and looking at the graph.

    I ordered a basher board about 2 weeks ago. Arrived today, fitted it in 5 minutes.
    Now all working 100% perfectly.
    I reckon my braking inputs are smoother and getting less lock ups and better turn in.
    Now why has fanatec not adopted this fix? That's a bit disappointing.
    Anyway happy here.

    Because you get what you pay for. A pcb that is 25% of the original price tag? That's why.
