Had a bit of time yesterday while the stream of the 12h of Sebring was in the nth caution and I had no other pressing matters, so I took my G27 apart to epoxy the encoder wheel to the motor shaft, since it turns out they all break the same way and always have since the G25.
Today, after replacing yet another failed Summit-branded ignition coil in the Crown Vic (which in the ultimate irony failed on the way to Summit to pick up Chevelle parts), I figured I’d give it a try. After it started up and did the self-calibration, it was slightly off-center. Within 1 lap of Spa, my wheel was 90 degrees to the left again to go straight.
At this point I don’t know if I should cut my losses and give up on having a racing sim, or spend more than I’ve bought cars for and get a Fanatec setup.
If nothing else, I’m sure I’ll tear this one apart yet again to try to figure out what the hell is going on. 1/10 would not recommend (would be 0/10 but it did work for about 16 hours when brand-new).
