    I'm not sure about tonight yet. I might need to do long distance deliveries today from work and I'm not sure what time will finish. Will let know later today but I hope I can make it.

    Just plugged my wheel in an it made some extremely unhealthy noises. :( Sounded like the main motor spinning without affecting the wheel or something. The bloody thing isn't even that old. :mad:

    Well, fudge. I had not taken into consideration the 20cm of fresh snow that I had to showel out of my driveway to get my car out of the road when I got home... No racing for me tonight, then :unsure:

    No idea what that noise was from my wheel, but it seemed to work fine for the races. :O_o: Really, really good racing again today guys. So close, very exciting! The stream should be fun to watch, which is what I'll be doing with my din-dins. :D

    2 sources of strange noises i encountered are faulty fan or loose quick release ring. If it was constant and quite loud then it might be leaky fan bushing :p

    edit: just saw your previous post and it sounds like a problem i had with a fan

    Quite possibly yeah. The noise started just after plugging in the power. The auto calibration worked fine so the fan is the prime suspect. The wheel is out of warranty now, so if it happens again I'll have to replace the fan myself.
