It started 3 days ago, lapping on Okayama in iracing with a Ferrari GT3. After 3 hours of laps I get my time within .3 of the VRS lap time. On the following laps I am really pushing to lose some tenths and I rotate the wheel 20 degrees and then all FFB feeling is lost. Wheel is totally numb until it is returned to center.
Thinking that’s really strange I go back to pits and power cycle the SC2, I reach around to hit the switch and I can already feel an extreme amount of heat coming from the motor casing. I place my hands on every part of the metal casing an it’s really hot to the touch. The back plate of the device is the hottest part.
I turned off and let it cool and tried again the next day. Same car same track same results after a period of 2-3 hours. Last night I tried the M8 GTE on Suzuka and got the same results after about 2 hours. The motor housing got extremely hot and I lost all FFB.
My TD settings haven’t drastically changed over the 3 months of use. The unit did get warm during use but never to this intensity. The SC2 has been used for at least 4 hours every weekday and pretty much from when I wake up till I go to bed on the weekends with zero issues for nearly 3 months.
I have emailed my reseller but am still awaiting a reply, the thought of not being able to race this weekend is killing me so perhaps someone else has had this issue or knows of a possible cause and solution I could try out. As it stands though it seems something isn’t right somewhere.
