A short while ago I was experimenting with quite a few different custom profiles, particularly for iRacing.
At one point after saving in the TD software I noticed some strange metallic noises from the wheelbase, some quite aggressive and loud while driving, to the point of being quite concerned.
I removed some profiles, power cycled and also re-flashed the firmware in case there was a corruption somewhere. This stopped the noises but I now don’t have the confidence that I have a wheel base that is working as I remember it when I first bought it.
Is there a way to factory reset the wheelbase, back to how it was when I first purchased it?
I don’t mind about losing profiles, etc., I just want to have the peace-of-mind that everything is back to factory settings so I can start from scratch.
There are no parameters or settings within the device that would not be reset by just creating a new profile and using it. But, you might want to check the Hardware settings tab settings, by default they have hands off detection = high and resonance reduction = checked.
Thanks for the reply.
I remember reading about the different parameters you mentioned as I was going through my initial extensive testing and had them set as advised on the forum.
My issue seemed to crop up after a particular save, after I had adjusted some of the general force parameters, which is why I assumed a ‘bad’ save had occurred. Once I had done the things I described in my original post everything seemed fine again.
Still, it’s good to know that creating a new profile effectively resets everything, as you mentioined.
Would still like to factory reset if it was ever possible though, just to satisfy my paranoia
Like Mika says, basically using the original default profile will essentially ‘factory reset’ your device to as-shipped condition.
There is no user-access to (internal) parameters like in the older Simucube 1 boards, as there is no need for anyone to access those due to the ‘defined’ servos GD uses on the SC2. Internal Parameters are programmed at the factory as a one-shot exercise and remain fixed for that servo/controller combination for life.
They don’t/won’t change for any reason.
Thanks for the explanation, I think both you and Mika have put my mind at rest regarding my concerns.
Is there a way to reset the profiles to back to default, i.e., clear all the new ones I’ve created and the built-in ones I may have edited?
I’d like to get back to having just the profiles that were there from new.
A new unit does not have any profiles, so just by deleting all your profiles you will be as-new.
