New CSL DD not feeling right
Tried out my new CSL DD and It has the weird buzzing sensation some people report when it's turned on (even if the PC is not powered). It is sometimes felt while driving, specially on the shifter paddles. This morning the tarmac in 3 different games felt like "the floor is sandpaper". It comes and goes but when it went away I started noticing that the center of the wheel is not picking as much detail as the sides. When I go over kerbs in a straight line I can't feel them as much as if I'm turning over them. It's there but it feels like a controller vibration. When holding the wheel straight there's almost no feel from the road, but it starts to become apparent when I turn the wheel slightly. I'm using 100% FFB with the 8nm power pack and I have tried it in AC, ACC and AMS2 with almost the same results with different in game FFB settings. I have tried lowering FEI and whatnot but I shouldn't have to do that since people who have the same values as me don't seem to have this issue. I'm using the table clamp and I know fidelity is lost but that doesn't justify losing detail on the straights. My desk doesn't wobble as much as I would have expected, especially since it's not the sturdiest, and that leaves me with the impression that I'm not getting the full force in some situation. The dampening, compression and counterweight feel good and strong though unlike some finer details, so at least it can put up a fight in that sense. I saw the Youtuber Jardier using it in a desk at 70% FFB on the wheel and 70% in game (ACC) and the desk was wobbling and he said he felt a lot of force and detail. Why do I have to use 100% to feel less than what he reports? Sometimes the fine details feel like a PS4 controller vibrating when going in a straight line. The worst part is that I'm outside the US and can't RMA it in case the base is the problem. I even asked before buying if it's possible to ensure I don't get a dud and I got a reply saying that this production issue (the static feeling) had been solved, which apparently is not true. I don't know about the center feeling weak though, never heard of anyone with that issue. FML, I'm a sad camper.
EDIT: yes, I have the latest drivers
