    Caster and Force Feedback

    Why is caster adjustment altering strength of force feedback?

    This would be normal even with a real car. The best way, at least for me, to understand the caster is to think about what happen to a motorbike like this, with tire on the front when you try to steer. The higher is the angle there more force you need to apply to turn, and viceversa, the more you will feel on your steering wheel forces applied to the tires(bump, cornering forces...). The more caster you have, the more the tire will try to auto align back to the center, therefore you need to apply more force to rotate it.


    quoting from http://en.intraxracing.nl/techniek/camber,-caster,-toe-intoe-out/
    The more positive caster the more "feed-back" you will feel driving, it would make steering harder as the steering force will increase.

    here is nicely explained

    Brilliant, thank you Andrea, the video made me understand.
    The more I drive NKP, the more I love it.
    It is too bad more people do not give it a chance, I have tried other sims, that people are talking about all the time, they are games compared to NKP being a SIM.
    The learning curve is a little steep but once you start to understand, it is fantastic.
    I have had fun lately in Brazil. Very Happy
    Thank you for your answer.
    Now if we could get AC, my SIM world would be perfect.
