I 'experimented' this afternoon and, after the dust settled, went back to 520, all gets a bit wierd for me after that :)

How do you all get your profilers to be so accurate.  I found about 360o is the sweet spot for me, but the closest I can get the slider to is 362o!

Hehe

It may be only two degrees to you, but to me it's very important!!!

< Byron screams at the monitor whist waving his fists:  'Go onto 360 you badly calibrated bastard!' >

Good luck with the PDSM SS Pro

was bored !!!

wooden paddles stained and polished 

if the spatula is one bit of wood, if you let it get very very wet, you will be able to bend it, ie put a curve in at and it should stay that shape when it drys out, you might need to boil it in a pot on water or if you have an automatic dish washer, open it at the steam drying cycle and then bend the spatula, get a bit of wood and bang a few nails into the wood so the spatula holds it shape.

If i get that G25 working again i'm gonna go for the full 900 and use it like it hasn't been used before!  (pun)

then ill probbly settle for the 357 degrees byron mentioned, hehe.. Cuzz pete.. you can never hurl the wheel fast enough around to take the car outtof a spin m8.. you'd go insane having to do that combined with a dodgy setup... but on the other hand.. sanity is not in your wonderfull vocabulary, so that might be ok anyways then...

Yeah, Riv is renowned for his stoicism and his tendency to suffer in dignified silence!

I did find some stuff about dismantling it and fixing the tiny bit of play (looseness) that you get dead centre on a DFP.

Can't give you a link though, it was a while ago!

Force strenght is unbelievable compared to black momo...

Are both lights on the wheel on? 

Normally it won't work on 900 deg till  you fire up the wingman drivers.  Until you do, only one light will be on on the wheel.

Ah...  Same button combo as in GT4.  Didn't know that worked on PC too.
