This is interesting:
Thank you for the reply Dom.
Can you tell me at what temperature is too hot for the motor and driver? Or does the wheelbase never get to that temperature.
I typically find the driver goes up to 60 degrees. I am wondering is that too hot with longer durations of simulation.
Hi Keith, there shouldn't be anything specific to driver 356 that changes the behaviour of the P1 wheel, so what you're describing sounds like a hardware connection issue. Please ensure that the wheel is correctly seated on the quick release. If the flickering still occurs please create a support ticket.Is anyone else having problems with their P1 rim (PS4 version) when connecting it to the PS4 DD1? I'm using driver 356 and when I attach the rim, the lights constantly flicker and the rim doesn't shift like normal. I'm hoping the next driver release addresses this.

Wheels can require a little more force to push on to the Podium wheel bases compared to the CSL Elite wheel bases due to the expandable rubber gasket on the base-side QR (it helps to apply a small amount of silicone grease).@DomB_Fanatec I'll recheck the connection. However, when I first received the the Podium wheelbase I didn't have this problem. I am not sure as to which firmware and drivers were installed in it when it was delivered, but it worked just fine. This only happened after installing 356. If it matters, I'm sure I have one of the newer wheelbases as mine was delivered the day after Christmas. In addition, if I attach it to the CSL Elite (PS4) wheelbase, it again works fine. But I'll keep testing as I truly don't want to have to send it in.
Question....If I do send it in, does it have to go back to Germany or is there a place stateside I can send it to?
I have 4 wheels. I hate nothing more than tugging them off this quick release. It's anything but quick.
Would love for it to actually be quick. I don't even care if this is a third party solution.
This looks more promising indeed
Looks like some kind of receiver (female) part on the base side ??
Got a Z-Ring yesterday. Took about 5 minutes to install. Works perfectly. Better than I expected.
So much easier to pull off my wheels now, and no more unscrewing, adjusting, and rescrewing in the hand bolt every time you change a wheel.
Even if a new QR is coming some day, the $10 I spent on the Z-Ring was worth it in the meanwhile.
