Simucube 2 Sport vibrating when turned on

thank you for the advice and this isn’t jsut to you, i just can’t reply to two people at once, can we stop slapfighting here guys. i have seen the wood board and G clamp method, and it is in the running for solutions, as the P1X is 124 more i have to throw at a setup. meanwhile a 2x4 i can cut into two pieces and the clamps i will need is more liek 50. and i do need to consider that as well.

the benefit to the P1X however is when i do go to an extruded aluminum rig or make my own rig, i already have my mount. but again there are many considerations such as rig compatibility and others that are also outside of the sim setup. ( kid’s B days coming up, and wife always loves to go all out on those)

i don’t have Iracing, however it is a future potential subscription, just not one in the immediate future, as AC has plenty of tracks and DR 2.0 will also have plenty of content to suck more time out of my life.

i’m also wanting to get a freind to try AC again ( i initially bought AC and a PXN9 not realizing it wasn’t even a geared force feedback wheel, and money was a bit tight that year) and maybe he and i have a few fun races. of course when we first played he started off with a lamborghini and ran into every wall on the track the first time we played and now refuses to touch any racing game…

And got much worse recently, to be honest. I understand community help value with DIY projects like OSW and to some degree SC1, but may be we should reserve technical troubleshooting to GD staff. I can see only Mika posting here but there are much more engineers supporting on discord.
In OP situation, I think support ticket is all that was needed to get a proper help.

well it’s fixed, i used settings given by CLAY, after goign back throuhg his post and makign sure i moved the specific sliders he said to and not just zero’d everything and made sure everythign is tightened, and retightened everything on base, wheel QR etc, all good now. thanks guys. first DD, so no idea what is normal and what isn’t.


Hi Andrew,
After a few decades in process control environment, there are a few basic things when someone tells you the process controls are not working. Simply, I switch the controls to manual. If the prices stabilises, we know the tuning is incorrect. If it doesn’t stabilize, then we know there are other factors upstream contributing.

With DD wheels, the process is similar. If things are oscillating wildly, there are only a few basic things to do. Ensure a solid mount of the device. Ensure a wheel rim attached. Apply judicious filtering to the 3 main filters, to see if that stabilise the wheel. Ensure you are in high torque mode, and I typically recommend iRacing, as it has the lowest FFB rate, if you can stabilise it in that sim, then any instability in any other sim can be tuned out via sim adjustments.

This was a simple request for OP to try, the end result would have been to remove his fear that the unit might be faulty, see his first post, last part. After that had been established, then the helpful community would surely have provided him the correct settings for whatever his sim of choice.

I didn’t appreciate passive-agressive replies by both of them. But hey, now I know in future just to keep my trap shut. No issues.

while i initially may have been passive agressive the “there’s nothing wrong with your device” comes off as unhelpful, fan-boi-ish, anmd immediately ignores the valid concern that somethign may be wrong in exchange for a potential fallacy.

there is always a chance something got past QC and made it out in the wild that is a faulty product, or that damage may have occured during shipping ( especially on some of these midwest roads, potholes large enough to swallow a truck) it’s also been a trend in my luck the last several months that i wind up with the random POS that squeeked through on products everyone rants and raves over. so immediately treating my concern with such disdain comes off as agressive and fervant, and considering some of the communities i’ve come across ( Star citizen cult on Spectrum being one of them thanks to a friend buying me a package so he would have someoen to play with) i find such statements extremely stand offish and agressive.

i apologize if i insulted you somehow with my reply. but having dealt with blind zealotry for a corporation it felt the appropriate response.

I know youre new here but hes one of the reasons we have DD wheels now. There are probably few people that know as much as he does and have tested as many as he has over the years. So any time he comments hes only trying to help or offer advice. No fan boi-ish stuff ever from him.

As a new comer however that isnt what is prtrayed, as anyone new has no idea what his history is or what experience he brings to the table, i am also stating it so he is more aware of the optics he presents when he posts like such.


Asetek has, other than Granite, default profiles made by themselves. They offer it at least for Iracing, AC, ACC and F1 2023, and for 3 wheel bases, the Invicta, Forte and la Prima.

The official Asetek default Iracing profile for the Invicta with its 27Nm includes, among other settings, again, for Iracing:

Damping 0
Friction 0
Inertia 1

PS: No, I don’t have any intention on buying an Asetek wheelbase. I stumbled upon this by accident.

i haven’t used any invicta wheel but i would like to try those settings with one. But i am really skeptical if those settings will feel any good in iracing.

I have no idea. I just see it as maybe a good starting point. Imo those who build something are also the ones normally knowing it the best.

ffb is personal taste so it could vary alot. It could be a good starting point i guess
