    So I came across this video in my search for FFB settings and it was eye opening.

    Turns out i had my FY setting too high and my FFB was getting maxed on any turn, which then couldnt relay to me any variations in grip b/c it was just maxed.
    Using this grid i turn my FY setting in the car FFB section all the way down to 20 in one instance, and i could suddenly feel the grip thru a corner instead of the FFB just being maxed threw out it all

    Hmm,interesting. My T300 feels pretty good to me but I am going to check this out.

    Yeh the FFB thing is an ongoing issue for me, though less so as time has gone on. Proper FFB setup is critical, both for your driving and (I believe) the longevity of your wheel. A lot of info is sent to the wheel beyond weight & rumble, and the T300RS seem to strain under the pressure. I've had to abandon races because of faint, rubberized electronic burning smells and cooling fan kicking into high speed. Quick settings change and all that goes away....interestingly, you can affect the car's handling with only FFB adjustments.

    I looked into this and the ffb line never left the screen for me even while hitting inside curbs in sharp corners. I could see the line going up and down sharply but it was allways within view. Like I posted before, My T300 feels good and I'm not going to mess with the settings.

    so no matter what it would stay in view, the key was to not have it flat line at the top or bottom, flat line is the wheel is maxed. (note the bottom is somewhere in the middle of the box i dont understand why its like that but it is)

    No, it never flat lined.
