Snappy steering

TS-PC Wheel.
I can't seem to get the "snap" out of the steering. When I start to turn it begins fine, then the steering speeds up. Kind of like a rubber band. Anyone experience this?
Thanks

Seriously, not a single person other than myself has experienced this?
Tried the Sensitivity setting, however, that just delays or speeds up the effect. Even at low speed, say 10mph, it will still rubber band. Happened with my G27 wheel as well.
Thanks for any help someone may have.

Sensitivity should be at 50, how many degrees of rotation do you use for your wheel?

Tried the whole range of sensitivity. Including (50). Tried setting wheel at 1020,900 and 540 to no avail. R3E, AC and ACC work well with the wheel. Thanks for your suggestion bro. I'll keep farting around with it, I guess.

Thanks, tried that too. Will be home soon. Going to root around and try to figure it out. PCars is the most fun I've had Sim racing. Not going to argue what's best. But man, the good times....

Figured it out. I basically have to remove the snappiness during setup. IRL cars don't snap like that, but at least the game is playable for me now.

Sim Life is great.

mate be sure you don't have any 'controller damping' in your 'controller---configuration' settings. For unknown reasons it is on by default at 100. You don't want any with a wheel. Put it to 0 and you'll have a smooth ride ;)

Thanks for that info. Away from the house, so I'll have to check on that when I return. Again, thanks, mate.

This game has the WORST STEERING OF ALL MY NEWEST RACE GAMES. Don't expect it to get any better.

I have never had a game that was so un-steerable. I sure think the graphics and cars and tracks are great but the driving is just terrible. It is like driving a car with a rubber band. If a real car drove like this i would not own one.

Goto the official PCars forum and look for the custom FFB profiles and settings for your wheel. Also check some of the FFB profiles here on RD

PCars out of the box has pretty poor FFB/wheel settings but the various community profiles make it a lot better.

Thanks, but all this has been done ad nauseum. For me and others, no joy. All good. Not going to beat the game up. Is what it is, for me.

I have been using Christiaan van Belle pure FFB for a while now and it has changed my experience with PCars2 totally and for the better.
I am also driving the other usual suspects, I am not expereriencing the snap that you are describing in any of my SIM.

Never experience of this problem with G29 and T300rs.
I also use custom FFB, the Jack Spade one. I appreciate the work done by Christiaan van Belle, but the wheel is too light for me. However, it is a matter of taste, and it is good to have at least three good custom FFBs.

Has there been an update to the car physics? I swear I can drive these cars in a way I could not before. My setup hasn't changed. At least I don't remember making changes. But I am old. So that.

The snappy steering seems to be as a result of the default setups being very oversteery and tons of engine braking. Reduce that (by increasing the number) and it will improve it a lot. Won't fix the pathetic AI and bollards that send cars flying into space.
