Hi there, my SC2 Sport has been failing after 3 to 10 minutes of racing, for the past months. And I can’t figure out what seems to cause it. So I’m hoping to get some advice here.
Issue. FFB stops in the middle of a practice or race and the wheel turns itself to one side. Other usb devices continue to work (or perhaps reconnected quickly enough). There is no fault code in True Drive, but sometimes the application stops responding when the situation occurs.
The motor failure mostly happens in ACC, but every once in a while in other games as well. But AC is no problem, can drive that for hours straight without any issues (luckily). But, the motor did fail once or twice in AC so technically it did occur.
Tested. Replaced the powered usb hub, bought a better power strip, made sure usb ports cannot be shutdown by Windows. Monitored my pc with hwinfo for cpu and temperatures spikes. Game reinstalled incl. documents libraries. Nothing. Graphic settings in game, nvidia side, lowered graphics. Side note, I also play demanding games like Hitman 2 and Tom Raider, both on 4k ultra with no issues from the pc.
My power strip is connected to an non grounded wall socket. The fuse box in my house is grounded though. This is what worries me currently since I can’t figure out any pc related issues.
Specs. P1-X. Ascher-racing bbox flippers usb, with magnetic flippers (read about emi on the forums). And then of course pedals, shifter, bbox, handbrake. PC i7 9th gen, 2x16 GB at 3200, 2080ti msi trio, noctua cpu cooler, 850w gold. AV receiver and 4kTV are used for audio and video. Both are powered by the same strip as everything on the sim. The strip is a double 6 socket brennenstuhl. Pc power goes to a separate wall socket.
I saved the True Drive event log last time, right after the motor failed again. Would you please take a look at it for me? Any conclusion helps at this point!
Thank you, René
