The wheel is Small mige. Can you link me the latest granity software tool? I also noticed that there is no bumpstop options in the latest configurator compared to previous
Correct on bumpstops settings.
Just choose soft or medium and you are done.
Just to note, that I did try to make the Hard bumpstop quite hard, while not inducing too much kickback on my Simucube 1 2M SinCos nor on my Simucube 2 Pro. I do have quite heavy wheel (Ascher B16M-SC and 300mm rim with Simucube Quick Release. Perhaps it does kick back too much on other types of hardware.
I can make it slightly softer for next release, but need to care for those that actually want very harsh bumpstop…
Yeah it is a hard thing to make perfect for everyone.
Size and weight of wheels will make a big difference.
Plus if you have a very strong person they sometimes can turn thru a very soft bump stop and motor normally doesn’t like that.
Is bumpstops strength a percentage of Amperage set in Granity or over all force in Simucube software?
For example bumpstops strength does not get weaker by design if the strength slider in a profile is reduced?
Oops just realized I should have made that comment in the SC1 software thread.
Separate bumpstop strength is not available in Simucube 1 anymoret either.
Oh well in that case I think we will need some more bump stop options. Yesterday I remember pushing past the bumpstop in rf2. Is that bad for the motor? Its on soft atm. Should I add some negative lock ? Can I ask why you made the decision to remove that feature?
I understand that features for SC2 must come first but removing features from its predicdsesor to improve SC2’s advantage is quite disappointing, BUT im hoping thats not the case
Bumpstop maximum strength is at 100% now. This was an adjustable setting with 100% at maximum before, and we didn’t find any reason why it should not be 100% permanently.
If your overall strength low, you can overpower the bumpstop strengths (like before).
It does not hurt the motor. In some rare cases if you turn thru the bumpstops it will snap back to center
Also when trying to access granity , ive pluged a second usb mini b into the pc and Im getting these options.
You have to click on the enable Ioni button in Simucube software to get into Granity.
Then when you are finished in Granity you have to click it again for Simucube software to become primary again.
Sorry I can’t remember the exact name on the button.
thanks that worked, not changing things just wanted to learn about this software. Do you have any experience with RF2. Im using the OSW_simucube controller in rf2 as it feels the best. but when driving over curbs it nearly rips my arms off. Should I lower Steering torque capability to 10 or so?
You are welcome.
No I don’t have any experience with RF2.
There are quite a few guys on this forum that are very experienced with RF2. I think there are quite a few things you need to setup to get it to work correctly.

Now that you know how to get into Granity.
Open Granity and connect.
In the bottom left of the screen you will see a button that says save drc.
Save it so that if you ever get Granity messed up you can load that drc and be back to normal.
You can also use that drc in the Simucube hardware configuration setup.
Thank you. Ill do that just to be safe. Ive noticed that other small mige users have around 12A at 100% whereas I have 10A, could this be my 400w psu limiting that extra few nm?
Yes, it is probably tuned in such a way to make it not trip the overload protection on the PSU. Which PSU is it, btw?
Smun s-400-48, the meanwells are 480w maybe thats why.
I was thinking of upgrading the psu to a meanwell, but the only meanwell psu that have similar formfactor are SE series. Those din rail psu’s are too big, as my osw came with a small controll box. Will this psu be any good ?
I get that it has a shut down feature but it states from 105-130% which the small mige cant really go over 12nm its rated for
No don’t get any power supply that has auto shut down. You are just asking for Trouble.
Imagine being in the middle of a race and you hit a curb real hard or contact with another car and the power supply faults. You are done, toast, finished, out of it etc etc.
If you can’t fit a Meanwell SDR-480-48 get the Meanwell PSP-600-48. We have had very good luck with that power supply over the years.
Some people did not like the fan noise. It spools up faster when needed. I always drive with headphones so no issue for me.
Is that in the case when you have simucube force at 100% and game force at 100% ? Surely I can limit the max NM in the sim files as in Rf2 ? Then the motor can not go above that set nm. And the same for iracing with the nm slider?
As you say worse case scenario, Emergency stop reset and its back running?
check for Meanwell
check to see if the dimensions fit but i think they will. Price should be better for the first one and it is way better than the se-600-48
