Wheel twitches and moves when car is still


I received my simucube 2 pro a couple of days ago and I have very much enjoyed it so far coming from a csl elite, I’ve only been messing around with other people’s setups and still trying to figure out what all the different settings do. I’ve tried various different setups but on all of them the wheel acts weird when I try to turn the wheel when the cars stop like in the pits or on the grid, it jerks around and sort of vibrates back and forth all very randomly and I can feel sort of a grainy feel.

I’m using the skippy in iracing and these are my current settings

anyone know or have any idea what may be causing this?

Let’s do a few small tests:

  1. Please reduce Ultra Low Latency to 12%. Also, give me a screenshot of your iRacing GUI wheel slider settings…

Just another note, cars feel pretty terrible when stationary in iRacing, I think David Tucker mentioned once it wasn’t modelled very well…

i have changed the ultra low latency with no effect. just so i know im doing it correctly, do you just have to click the save to simucube button? or do you need to restart the wheel base or true drive?

here is a screen shot of iracing

just to give you an idea here’s a video of it doing it, it does do it worse than this usually

I use reduce force when parked.

Yes, same here, do what Lee says, that will help. Forgot about that (recently added) setting in iRacing.

I am using it too.

I will try it later to see if it stops it shaking but was hoping to find a solution without turning ffb off when stopped as I like it for emersion and from my research that was one of the big pros over the fanatec dd1/2 (which was what I was initially going to get) was smoothness essential when parked.

It is a limitation of the simulation itself in this case, I believe.

no that did not help it just made it lighter, has anyone else experienced this?

my fanatec csl elite never did this i dont think its iracing and i cant find anything about anyone else experiencing this with a simucube 2

I will again test on my setup later, if my memory serves, I had the same in open-wheeler cars when stationary. There might even be some setting in the iracing ini file I changed, I might see if I can upload the ffb section here for you.

It has been a while since I last fiddled inside the ini file…

I will test quickly - which car are you using in your video?

Also, here is my app.ini ffb settings, copy these over yours in iRacing app.ini, see how it goes. Just save a copy of your original file first…

joyVibratePedalMaxPct=90 ; Maximum threshold of lockup when pedal vibrates at 100%.
joyVibratePedalMinPct=10 ; Minimum threshold of lockup before pedal starts to vibrate.
reinitFanatecWheelDisplay=0 ; reinitialize the fanatec wheel display when reconnecting devices this may cause issues
resetWhenFFBLost=1 ; Attempt to reset device when force feedback interrupted by SteamVR or another application, may cause a momentary loss in steering
seperateXBox360Triggers=1 ; Set to 1 to seperate the XBox 360 joystick triggers into there own axes
steerAverageSteeringTorque=0 ; True averages 360 Hz data down to 60 Hz, false uses last sample

steeringDampingParkedMaxPercent=0.200000 ; Maximum amount of damping to apply when parked, adjust this to reduce wheel oscilation when parked, values between 0.05 and 0.30 are best
steeringFFBSmooth=1.000000 ; Percent of current FFB force to use vs average force, 1.0 = no average 0.001 = max average
steeringForceParkedPct=0.330000 ; Reduce FFB force by percent when parked, to help reduce oscilations

trueForceVibeGain_dB=10.000000 ; Adjust volume of true force vibration effects
trueForceVibePhysics=0 ; 1 - use physics to generate vibrations, 0 - use game audio with Logitech TrueForce wheels

Something even more dead obvious: Please tell me you have completely uninstalled the Fanatec Drivers and Control Panel?

I am using the skip barber in Iracing, I was racing with the ferrari gt3 last night as well but forgot to test with that to see if that is affected also.

I have not uninstalled the fanatec software and divers I will try this later when I am home but I am still using there v3 pedals shifter so will need the drivers for those

and if there is no change there I will try you .ini file and see how that goes


all fanatec software and drivers removed, I tried your app.ini settings, but it is still doing it. did you try it on your setup?

so I have also tried uninstalling iracing and reinstalling it. I removed and redownloaded true drive. I have been speaking to another simucube 2 user that drives skippys who says he doesn’t have this issue and tried all his settings in iracing and true drive. but it is still doing it.

any other suggestions?

edit: oh and i tried it in the 488 gt3 and the mx5 and it doesn’t do it in those
