At the start of this discussion I had the following values in my race07 profile in progress:
• Vertical force: 1500000 @ 40%
• Lateral Force: 2000000 @ 70%
• Longtitudal Force: 2000000 @ 60%
Those values where set during a nice clean lap with hitting nothing but asphalt, but the vertical force felt way off.
This lead to the following remarks by Motiondave:
motiondave wrote:use collision effect for vertical, bumps, that way you can work on small ish bumps, but its not to nasty when you go off track...
motiondave wrote:set the vertical number fairly small, reduce % of effect if it is to harsh, then add that number in collision with a bit extra.
For race07, I use 981 on vertical with 7% and 1081 in collision. Mind you, it get vibration at idle.
Every game will be different.

Plus because we can only simulate not reproduce a vertical movement with our sims you really only need to use a small intensity value to simulate a quick little pitch movement to simulate the vertical rise of the car ie road vibs and sawtooth kerb, etc. Give it a go mate might be surprised, having too high of values sometime takes away all the little things that happen in motion, As with forces a 2dof unit can only simulate the long,lat,vert but can reproduce the roll and pitch well, so I use my roll and and pitch then mix in small amounts of intensity of the other force to give the feel I want out of a profile, been quite lucky in life and drive alot of different and expensive cars, so i got a good personal feel of what should be coming through the sim for me.
I think this can be some good tips for every new user and I would like to know/start discussion on if there are some more general "unlisted" tips for Race07 profiles.
I'm quite busy, but am going to try to mess around with the above tips this weekend.
