    In your profiler have it set up to 900 degree with 0 damping. I think damping might be a personal preference though.

    On the wheel itself:

    setup sen. to whatever rF2 says the cars wheel rotation is in the controls screen.
    FF 100
    Sho 100
    dri. 3 or 4
    Abs 100
    Lin 000
    dea 000
    spr 0
    dpr 0


    If you're used to a gear driven wheel it's going to take a bit getting used to the belt drive. It does have a different feel.

    okay thanks I shall give it a try, I have read other posts that some are using minus values in the spring and damper,
    it does feel weird as last wheel was my g27, the thing I am struggling with is what should i put the ffb on in game, should
    I match it with the wheel as at 1.0 in game with 100 on the wheel its seems quite violent on the pulls.

    Give it some time. You're going to have to adjust to the belt drive and also the larger diameter wheel. I personally like the wheel but fanatec cannot write firmware. Quite a few times now the wheel has reset for absolutely no reason. Usually right before a online race is about to start and I'm left with no FFB. lol.


    I don't know where you are but their north american customer service is horrible.
