    After 5 years of good and loyal service of my 2 Dof, it is following the purchase of a 3 dofs kit that I decide to redo a new simulation.

    First test this afternoon. The simulation works well.
    For the settings, I find it difficult to understand the tunning center, because if, as indicated, I do a few laps by activating the max and min capture then by saving, my effects are almost zero then ...

    Did you Save after capturing Min/Max?

    Please post pictures of all of your settings.

    Yes, I saved well before stopping the capture.
    I'll relaunch the game and send you the pictures.
    thank you very much for your help

    The game is tasteless ... there are a few small movements in the acceleration and braking, but the heave for example is imperceptible

    Try this. Don't do a few laps, just drive a little way, don't hit anything or go off the road, and don't go real fast. Turn the wheel right and left a few times and brake and accelerate moderately. Then save. After some time experimenting and adjusting how you drive when tuning you will figure out what works best for you. You still need to fine tune the numbers manually though for best results.
