Just ordered mine
What model did you go for?
Went for these in the end already upgraded pedals for HE Pros
VERY nice. Really like the rim.
yep seem best wheel out there quality wise if you do not want to break your bank completely.
followed OSW thread for quite few years now looking forward to getting one been on a T500 for 3 years
T500 owner here also. Bought the V1 which makes a few strange noises nowadays. i'm hoping that my OSW should be delivered this time next week.
Btw was looking at the Thrustmaster wheel converter kit for the osw sold on the simracingcoach site. Looks like a interesting design. Pity it does't do the F1 rim though
handy for step upgrade too use wheel on both T500 and OSW
yep F1 wheel would be nice if you buy/have the F599XX Alcantara Edition add on wheel and there adaptor for OSW makes nice cheepish wheel with buttons and gear change flappers.
If you already have it you can get OSW kit and use existing wheel with adaptor till you can buy more expensive type of wheel
Same if you got the wheel first you can use it on the T500 base using the USB so wont sit there while you save for OSW kit
for F1 I would get 2nd hand Fanatec wheel and add the Leo Bodnar USB converter board. looks sweet easy to fit and fairly cheep
I upgraded from CWB V2 to OSW and kept all my Fanatec wheels thanks to a USB convertor kit from https://www.simracingmachines.com/WebShop/fanatec-conversion
@SimonJ @nipzon Great info guys. Will have a serious look at these once I get set up
That looks nice quite different from Bodnar one
I am using a SimuCube with IONI Pro and small Mige 5000PPR.
A lot of info in here. I work over 60h/week and it is really hard to sit down and test all the different settings that everybody posts (huge thanks to you guys for all this testing). I do like how the OSW feels in iRacing but I just cant get it right in rF2 and I want to be using rF2 more than iRacing but keep going back to it because of time issues.
Could anybody recommend Granity, MMOS and ingame settings that I could try? Sorry to be asking this when I know how much work everybody puts into testing.
how do i reduce the harshness of the rumble strips? my small mige turns into a mini jackhammer.
EDIT: i've just had to increase the FFB smoothing in game and overall filter in Mmos, i guess not much else can be done.
reminds me of when i first played rf2 all those years ago with G25.....
Im not sure if its possible to lower the curbs in some file somewhere but it would be awesome. I dont have super wheel with its own software that can tweak all forces so overall smooth is the only thing. You want to have as much detail as possible on the tarmac but when you hit the curbs the wheel almost fall off. Some smoothness setting that is linked to curbs would be epic. I know that the FFB is pure in rF2 but maybe there can be some coding that links FFB to curbs and that can have a smoothing slider.
My kit was sat on desk when i got in to work bolted to 10mm ally plate to bolt to my setup getting 8mm allen bolts got temp ones in after drilling and tapping threds
quality of box is lovely pro usb slots neutrik connectors very nicely done
still waiting for wheel from Spain be 3 days ish
looking through OSW threads on varios sites will let you know if i find anything pos something in .json file
found this from few years about it on a site lol
"Well yeah, only issue i have is every time i dare step on the kerbs something flies off my rig "
Got my temporary wheel yesterday day till new one arrives
all setup ready will be testing today after work got few .json file setting saved saved to try.
I had FFB back to front so set all the +1000 to -1000. had not done this for a while and only changed one of the settings not all so that took me a while to figure out.
Will post my settings that i end up with
I'm using Simtech racings .json below as a base at moment been given modified once by Jed today swell to try they his personal setting for rF2
from quick 5mins at 6am this is going to feel awesome one fiddled to my liking
Help you posted
Do you have some setting for Automobilista ?
not yet concentrating on rF2 got league races starting in few weeks
would think they would be similar to rF1 settings
got most the racing sims and play Dirt Rally for when friends come over. Something they can drive with out to much thought.
So will be trying all at some point but rF2 is my main Sim
feels good in rF2 now mainly been turning the ffb down the multi down then more and again then once more prob few more times lol
this wheels a beast need to last a 45min race lol was done in after 5 laps it is allot tamer now
this feels very good
totally different from settings i had thought i would try with the dampers have same midge 10000ppr and Simcube
i have both dampers at 26% and max force at 55% plenty of force for me for a 45 min race with .50 multi in game
still playing but feels very nice
i also tried with damping effects off and added caster to setup to give more weight feel to ffb
felt very good too
i also removed all filters and just added 4 to 6 in game to see difference that felt good as well
very happy with feel now hope options may help others now to get used to it season start in few weeks
Cars used to test were URD Porsche Aston And C7R all felt great
Tracks were Portugal GP and Bathurst 3PA
