Gave these a go and they are pretty terrible. I get the wheel rocking side to side in a straight line. Its not like you have flat-spotted a tire - its more rocking side to side in a straight line. Tried various settings which improved it a little but its nothing like the Cortina in Historix.

rF2 does have an issue with gear chatter in the Logitech wheels. Trying lowering your minimum ffb force in-game, or lowering or turning off your self centering in your Profiler (Set it to game set)

Is there any particular way to drive these things without going round the track in an eternal cloud of burning rubber? :larf:

Are we keeping Front Anti Rollbars as Stock, or changing them to Modern Racing Spec too?

Thanks to those that organized this series. Car and tracks worked well together.

Lots of close clean racing too.

Thanks to all who turned up and arranged the series, was a lot of fun.

Shame I couldn't make the last round due to work commitments.
