LOL actually the larger motors work better with a little inertia… the smaller ones tend to start to return to center too fast with too much inertia which creates a snappy wheel… BUT with all of these settings the lower the power you use you can actually run less filtering as the filters don’t have to overcome.
It is interesting that you are getting a notchiness with friction the Small Mige I used had a SinCOS, I haven’t yet really got to mess with a BiSS but the resolution is similar to the SinCOS that I use.
The Settings above were for the Small Mige… On my Large I use Recon - 7 D @ 3.25%, F @ 0%, and I @.5% with .593:1 Specific Output 100% w/iRacing at 47Nm
I did find that with the Small Mige that there was a point that too much friction filter would cause it to feel dead and lifeless.
With the higher specific output I like to feel what I used to feel when I actually did some racing so I played with output until I found something that would wear my muscles at about the same amount that I remember feeling after about the same amount of time in a car of a similar type. The big thing with using more power though is that the fine details also come in that much clearer as the amplitude of the force is more real… In real life you let the car do most of the driving and you guide it so once you get your driving style to do that rather than the Sim Style driving where you force the car to do what you want the actual strength output is not as much of an issue and it is extremely satisfying flying through a corner exactly correctly as the flow and feel is light and fast. One thing though is that at higher strength minor set-up changes do become more apparent and a bad handling car will KILL your arms but a good handling car will be a dream… i.e. I ran the Sebring 12hour and I ran a test face for an hour before and I was hurting after an hour… Told my teammates the set-up SUCKED and made some minor changes… Not only did those changes pick up over a second a lap for each of us I also had no issues driving the car for the 2 hour stints we were running, probably could have run 3 hour stints if I wanted… This was with the F488GTE which is a little brutal steering wise.
So in other words the higher strength is really a matter of getting used to it.
