Knocking sound turning left and right

Sudddenly i have a metallic knock when I turn the wheel. In iracing when I drive the BMW M8 on a stright at 80km/h and turning the wheel left, right, left right. Every time I turn back from one direction i get a metallic hard knock in the wheel.

I tried different settings in the software, filter etc buit still there… Below two pretty different setups, both same knock, not more or less.

2-3 months old, latest small mige from simracingbay. Driver/firmware: 0.50.4C

This metallic sound is very easily heard if there is something not quite tight enough in your Quick Release or the shaft coupler.


I was thinking about that also, will have a look and report back.

I can tell you that in 2017, I spent a few hours trying to debug what is wrong in my torque effects. Then I found an ideal debug tool:


Yes, tightened down everything, all good. Thanx again Mika! :sunglasses:


Yes the magic recentering tool!

“My wheel keeps losing the center point. It must be the encoder!” LOL :grin:


Thats why this forum is the best. (And SimuCube)

This forum and iRacing forum is the best place for help on hardware. Especially OSW


With all of the new people to DD via the SC2 I am very surprised we have not had many of the " I lost all FFB"
And you ask them is the Estop pushed in?

We have all had this DUH moment!! :):smiley:



What car is your profile for iRacing SRS?

Do you have any other cars that you are real happy with the profile?
I am just getting my rig set back up after not racing for a while and I just finished building a new SC1. Before anyone asks, yes I will be getting SC2 PRO? :slight_smile:

My old settings are probably not very relevant anymore.


@Joe, That profile I got from this dude below after seeing his video (I used it on GT-cars).
The other one from a streamer and modified it some myself. I am still playing with settings :slight_smile:

@ Boska
Ok thanks for the info!
