    Hi.
    I have just recevied my new G27.
    After some tests, I have two conclusions that disapoint me.

    1- on the straight lines, the G25 has vibrations. The G27 has not (unless you start to turn the wheel)...
    2- the FFB is really stronger on the G25.

    These two points make the game really more realistic on the G25. I have to precise that the conditions were exactly the same : FFB to full, strenght to -100. Drivers : Logitech v5.10.
    If I put the strenght at 101% or more in the g27 settings, the car is undrivable.
    Any solution? Any modification in the controler.ini???

    Many Thanks for your help.

    In fact, after many tests, the G25 has a better feeling with a stronger FFB. I really feel the road, even if the G27 is a great wheel.
    On the forums, many people take about the "smoothy' aspect of the G27.
    Now I know what it means.
    It is only because I can compare the two models that I can notice the difference. The G27 is a good wheel.
    For this game, the G25 is just better...

    A friend of mine has made the same test, but with Race07 and his own wheels.
    Same conclusion : FFB is lower and there are less feeling details with the G27...

    TBH I thought the exact same thing when I raced around a friends with his G27, it seemed so loose compared to my G25. I just thought it must have been the settings. Perhaps not ! ;)

    Maybe this feeling has something to do with the new helical gears used by the G27 ?

    Looking at the controller files, I see G25 and G27 files look exactly the same.
    Why not try editing some of the settings in there?

    Simply put, the G25 have a stronger motor/FFB than G27. If you can grab a 25 still working at ebay or similar, get it. Extra buttons aren't worth the FFB strength loss on the 27. Logitech made a step back in this particular case, IMO.
