I got RacingCUBE nearly two weeks ago. Here are the first impressions.

First of all, really good customer service from Fasetech before my decision to buy, special thanks to Steffen. Delivery time was very fast.

The device is well finished. The installation video and other instructions are very good, saved my time significantly. The device works well, just like it has been promised. Through the initial difficulties, I got ahead, special thanks to Mariachi (@michael-mariachera1-net) for a good excel table with good settings for the most important games. Mariachi, really good work!

A few things remained a little unclear about the installation instructions. For example, the purpose of a yellow knob is not explained anywhere, only by experimenting will it become clear that it is a power adjustment. An important finding was Mariach's power choice of 2.5. Although I don't know how to turn on exapt 2.5, other than twisting the knob just over 2 over... After that, the RC's operating power became suitably restrained, and the feeling of driving improved. 

With a power value of 2-3, I feel like I'm losing a little feeling in braking and maybe the swaying of the base is getting a little too small. I also can't get the feeling more enhanced even if I raise pitch and roll values (e.g. Project Cars 2 or Assetto Corsa). When I increase the power to 4, the movement of the device increases appropriately, but some sensations become a little too hard, the device bangs on the mounting points of the axies. The instruction does say that after 10-20 hours the device will work smoothly. We'll see about that. So far I have driven almost 20 hours. But we've already had some good driving experiences! But Mariachi has a good point about too much force. I've got to keep adjusting and testing, it's an interesting job.

Great to hear. Please let me know if you like to chat about experience, settings and more. If you G29 starts to wobble, check my video about. Lot's of funn. See ya.

Hi Pompu, 

Thank you for your review! This will help people in the future. 

I agree that there are some things that are lacking and we are looking into that. We expect SimTools 3.0 will be released soon which changes everything. We will update the manual and make a better video manual too.

Regarding the display, it depends on your model. The RC4-CR need at least to run on 3 to be strong enough to lift the actuators. Older models can do it on 2. This does not represent the potency of the internals but merely the firmware settings or the settings in SimTools.

We have discussed if 0 should be motion off and 1 should have a minimum of strength instead of the linear model it uses now with increasing power. We are still discussing it internally.

If you feel the banging on the mounting points as you describe, that means you can balance the platform a bit better. All actuators should ideally have equal force as the platform is designed to rest on the mounting. If it is too front heavy, the rear motor will need to pull instead and that creates the banging.

We have a saying in this field 'Less is more' you need small but powerful movements to get a good feeling. Too much axis travel is not great for racing.

Regards
Steffen

Hi Steffen,

Thank you for your reply. Older RCv3 here, not the -CR. You make some very good points here, and good hints too. I will to try to change my seat position more backwards. I was thinking something like that. 

RC cooling fans could be little more quiet, but it's not too bad. I'm driving with headphones anyway.

I have been driving with the settings mentioned above and with RC power value 2.5 and it feels great when driving on tarmac with racing cars. Now the settings are quite good. Just this week started to test Automobilista 2 and I'm totally happy with it. Automobilista and VR feels great, like driving for real. When turning in to fast corners I feel pressure on my side and how the car bodyweigt rolling side to side. Really fun!

Hi Pomppu,

as soon you are familiar with your RC4 and start thinking about optimizing, check my FlexRig Video and the RC4 goes aluminum
