Since we have implemented the DRS and Push-to-Pass functions, added the fuel setting to the car setup (coming this patch) and reworked the tyre wear for the latest physics updates, we felt the need to redesign the Mini Data Display HUD, to present you the most important information during a race in a nicer, more compact way.


The new mini Data display contains the following information:

  • Gear
  • Speed
  • RPM
  • Fuel
  • Tyre Wear
  • DRS/P2P
  • Aero Damage
  • Gearbox Damage
  • Engine Damage

The RPM Meter will change its color to green, once you are close to the optimal shifting point, and red when you hit thelimiter.


Tyre Wear
You will notice the 4 tyre icons decreasing in size and changing color as your tyres lose available grip.
Yellow indicates that your tyres are out of their optimal range
Orange means that the tyres show a considerable amount of wear, and you should start thinking about pitting for new rubber.
At some point they will start blinking red, telling you that the tire is fully worn out.


Following the upcoming patch you will be able to change the amount of fuel in the car setup.
The Data Display shows you the amount of liters left in your tank, and will turn red once you’re left with only two laps worth of fuel, indicating that you need to pit in soon™.



The three damage icons show you the status of your aerodynamics, engine & gearbox.
When damaging parts of your car, the corresponding icon will blink yellow, and as the health of your car parts wears off, the associated bars will decrease and eventually turn red to indicate major damage.

  • With increasing Aero damage you will lose downforce.
  • Engine damage will hurt the performance of your power unit, which results in slower acceleration and lower top speed.
  • Gearbox damage may cause gears not to engage properly and eventually be lost altogether.


The display will show you the status and the number of remaining uses of your DRS / P2P function.


Green: The function is available
Red: Function is in use




In the upcoming patch we are including some Force Feedback updates, many of you have been asking for.


FFB Meter
In the secondary controller settings you will find an option to bind a key for the FFB Meter.
Once enabled, the yellow line marks your minimum force setting, and the red line shows the maximum force.
The green graph displays the steering forces sent to your wheel.

If the graph exceeds the red line you are experiencing “Clipping”
Clipping means, that your wheel has reached the maximum output force and you won’t feel any difference above that limit.


Minimum Force
The minimum Force Setting can be found in the FFB Settings Menu, and will allow you to amplify all the small FFB forces that your wheel might not be able to put out. That means small bumps and steering forces will be increased to a point where you can actually feel them through your wheel and thereby adding more details to your FFB.
This will also help eliminate the “dead center feeling” occurring with some of the wheels.


Slip Effect
This Effect simulates the shuttering of your tires as they struggle for grip,
which occurs for example during wheelspin, understeering, sliding and even on heavy braking.
Depending on the amount of grip as well as the rotation speed of your tires you will feel a vibration indicating that your tires are slipping.
The higher the rotation speed of your tires, the higher the frequency of the vibrations is.
The more grip your tires loose, the higher the amplitude of the vibration will be.

Stationary Friction
This will deal with the problem of wheels rotating by themselves if the car is stationary, for example in garage or on the starting grid.
This won’t be an option you will find in the menu, and it only takes effect, if the car moves slower then a couple of meter per second.

FFB Multiplier
Since the FFB in R3E is based on the car physics (Tire load & grip + suspension geometry), different cars result in different FFB strength.
So in the past you might have found your perfect FFB settings for one car, only to find out they don’t work as well with another car.
To avoid this, you are now able to adjust the cars individual FFB strength by changing the FFB Multiplier.
You will find this new Setting in the Car Setup>Steering Settings.
Increase the FFB Multiplier if a particular car feels too weak.
Decrease it, if the FFB of the car is causing heavy clipping.

Recommended Settings

1. Start by choosing the new default profile for your wheel in the Controller Profiles Menu. It contains presets for all the new settings.

2. To adjust the FFB strength individually per car, change the FFB Multiplier in the Car Setup>Steering Settings Menu

3. Depending on the Wheel you own, choose how much Clipping you want to allow.

  • If you for example own a Logitech G27, you should aim for Mild Clipping values, in order not to loose too much of the overall FFB Strength.
  • If you own a high end, direct driven wheel you can easily set it up for Zero Clipping, for the maximum amount of detail.




  • Added new content that will be released very soon. (edit: Audi Sport TT Cup released)
  • Implemented Refuelling in pitstops. This is still work in progress and there will be additional fuel options in car setup later. For now all cars will start with full tank.
  • Increased session length up to 6 hours.(R3E only. Does not apply to other experiences.) Please note the replay file size will be rather big on longer session races. You can disable replay recording by adding “-disableReplay” to Launch Options for the game on Steam.
  • Added Push-to-Pass logic with a temporary HUD element for it. (HUD will be changed in the near future). Push-to-Pass info is available for spectator overlays and in shared memory.
