CSL DD: Strong click, clonk or jolt randomly in all sims
I have a CSL DD (8Nm) , purchased in June 2021. I am using the optional metal QR adapter. All original cables are used in my rig.
I had the CSL Elite 1.1 WB prior and never experienced this effect with it. I found several posts here on this forum where others have described similar issues and some have resolved it by adding a piece of tape into the groove of the shaft. I tried all that to no avail.
In the video you can hear the loud and quite violent jolt. Even the screen (car) appears to jump. Before you ask, yes I am using the security pin screwed in as well.
I tried everything in the book to figure out where the sound/FFB jolt comes from:
- Different USB ports (USB2 and USB3) making sure that the WB is alone on that header.
- Another brand new UPS with the WB attached to the battery outlet and nothing else. Living in Florida a UPS is a must have....I tried using the surge protection outlet only as well.
- Used my ESports F1 wheel and it shows the same effect.
So, it is fair to say that the DD or its power brick causes some type of glitch where the sensor of the brushless motor gets out of sync and then 'jumps' to get into sync again. I have no other explanation.
Any other idea is greatly appreciated.
