New features for CSL E RMcL:
Advanced Clutch Bite Point function (Clutch mode A)
If you do nothing, the feature remains the same as it was before. Fully pull both clutch paddles all the way. Hold one paddle at the optimal clutch bite point that you have determined in earlier tests.
The Advanced feature gives you the possibility to store your favourite bite points in each of the five settings (tuning menu now immediately shows you which setting is active)
The handling is a little bit different:
First determine and set the clutch bite point: put the car on an empty track. Put in 1st gear, push throttle while holding either one paddle all the way.
Activate setup mode by pushing the FunkySwitch up or down (still hold the one clutch paddle during the whole procedure, it will not work as the clutch in this case, but keep the setup mode active)
find your clutch bite point by turning the FunkySwitch. The clutch value on the display, is also sent to the car and it will start moving when the clutch bites.
As soon as you release the clutch paddle, the value is stored.
Use in game:
Pull both paddles: the clutch is fully pressed. The display shows your previously set bite point
On green light fully release one paddle while still holding the other fully pressed. The clutch of the car is immediately set to your preset value
release the paddle slowly to fully release the clutch (you have now full travel of the paddle for this!)
Centre fading issue on CSL E WB/ CSL E WB PS4
This issue is actually not related to the McLaren wheel, but was introduced when developing new firmware for it.
In some wheel bases the wheel center travels gradually in one direction and after a while you will need to hold the wheel at an angle to go straight.
If you have encountered this issue (only on CSL bases), please check whether it still occurs with this firmware.
