Great! I'm excited. Had fun for sure, though it's always different in a live situation. Getting a bit more familiar with the cars, and luckily Sebring is one of my favorite tracks.

See you guys out there!

Michael: seriously, like 2 laps in and boom! I was thinking the same thing. 😂

Help!!
Just got the 599xx rim for my TX wheel and after installing it the buttons no longer work. Tried to reinstall the standard rim and the buttons don't work there either, including shifter paddles.

There are literally no videos on how to install this thing and the manual tells me to tighten the "installation screw" on the base, which I cannot find.

Super bummed, can't run until I fix this. :(

Ok so my installation screw is just missing, but that shouldn't affect anything since I never had one to begin with (bought the TX used).
Pretty sure I'm installing it properly, just some weird problem. I contacted support. I would guess faulty rim, except my old one doesn't work anymore either.
No racing for now :(

Sorry to hear that Jan. Hopefully there is a sloution.

I'm not technically talented so I have stayed away from those modifications even though I would have wanted f1 style wheel also.

If it's a button issue my best guess is that the connector that you use to connect the wires from the wheel to the paste is either it connected improperly or not at all.

Just a stab in the dark...
Not sure if your base is like mine but is there a mode switch on the left lower side of the base, two positions, PS4 and PS3.  The switch should be in PS3 position for use with a PC.  If it is in PS4 nothing will work in the game controller wise.  You need to plug the usb back in after moving the switch to make it work.

Hey guys thank you all so much.

You were right, it was the connector. The quick release for some reason wasn't lining up properly and it wasn't fully connecting the rim to the base.

All fixed now and ready to go! :)

Starting to get a bit quicker... Here and there I pull out a lap that surprises me. In the races just working on not crashing and staying out of the fast people's way.

How are you doing? Which car did you choose?
