A full reinstall of the game should do the trick, hopefully, if you haven't tried yet Bacchulum.
I've tried everything short of a full format and windows install.
Also go to control panel > uninstall a program > click on repair for which ever c++ visual studio allows you to repair

Thanks guys. If I could race all the nights, I would!

Even though enduros are not my thing due to beer and toilet needs :)  I will be keen to hear what you think of them
Well, what I like about enduros full stop (ACC or not) is the concentration required, trying to keep brain fades to a minimum. In ACC, you have to deal with obviously changing day/night lighting conditions, changing weather conditions, changing rubbered racing line. What is intriguing so far is the tyre pressures. You don't just dial in the optimal pressures and fuggedaboutit. The temperature is changing, especially day to night, and so your pressures are always changing, going up or going down. At a pit stop, you have to try to predict if the temp is going up or down, and how high or low to set your PSI. Your tyre pressures may be too high for a while, but then settle into an optimal range later in the stint, or vice versa. And of course you have changing tyre wear, changing fuel loads etc changing the car dynamics as well.
As to the driving feel, I like how the cars feel like they have weight, and don't just go sliding off the track at the drop of a hat, but aren't on rails either. I don't have any numbness in the FFB. All the cars feel, and sound, very different.
+1 although I haven't spent much time optimising set ups and pit stops/refuelling/tyres, I just like to drive. I joined rooz a couple of weeks ago, qual 4th?  .5 off the front runner which I was pretty happy with but got punted off in the first corner, someone thought 3wide was a good idea, the inside guy pushing the middle guy into me (being on the outside). Ended up pretty boring racing then. Should do more pit testing because when I went in for fuel and tyres, the tyre box was unchecked and was unable to check it in time so came back out with the same set lol. Is there a tyre wear indicator? Anyways I quit early when I saw the leaders catch me, I'll join in again on Mon. Any thoughts on pit strategy, fuel/tyres? I was going to go with 2 stop but think it best with 1?

I'm not having any issues with wheel sensitivity myself, but it maybe worth checking the wheel rotation (degrees) is set up correctly.

A full reinstall of the game should do the trick, hopefully, if you haven't tried yet Bacchulum.

Short bit of testing they seemed pretty bland but actual racing was interesting. Cut the grass too much and spun a few times, I left because I had to get up early this morning.

Quite a few years back I vaguely remember reading about Mercedes having an advantage because of a loop hole or something like that, it's when I stopped being bothered to watch it. I've watched a couple of races this year and seems no different and to be honest quite boring watching the same team win and the same top teams battle for the rest of the podium. Supercars has been much the same in recent years too I think, although I'll watch it a bit more because it's on at a decent hour. With my spare time these days I'd much rather fire up the pc and simulate lol

Ha, found an adapter, which has 2 female sockets and therefore makes it possible to connect both 3-fan sets together to the PSU.
That part makes sense now...power is solved :-)
I would want to control fan speed and lighting via MB/AURA software.

In my 1st post I described what fan sockets I've got on my MB.
There are two more things I've got to understand.
1) Can you have a look at my first picture and just focus on the 2 cables/plugs on the left and tell me if I have to take off this 4-pin female plug (the one with the red and red/black cable) and connect this 3-pin plug to the MB? I think I have to, otherwise there's no way to control these 3 front fans by this AURA software. This plug would fit the fan sockets on the MB, but has only 3 pins, the MB socket has 4 though.
2) As mentioned before I've got only 2 (labelled) fan sockets on my MB. How do I connect my 3 fans (two sets of 3 and this single one at the rear)? The Asus rear fan female plug actually does fit on the male socket on the LIAN LI hub. Should I plug it in there? I don't know if the wiring is the same, but it seems ground is matching as there's a white dashed line on the LIAN LI and Asus cables and that seems to indicate it's ground based on the labeling on the LIAN LI hub. Otherwise I need to plug the data cable of one of the fans either somewhere else into the MB or use a splitter cable, which I don't have atm.

Cheers for your patience  :)
All good...I'd scrap the red wire connector (you only need it if you can't connect to sata power) and plug the 3pin fan connector to mobo 4pin (it still works), then the rear fan connect to the hub with the other fans which then goes to the mobo.
As for the the led, to control it via software it will need to connect to the mobo not the hub https://www.asus.com/au/support/FAQ/1038980

First pic, male sata, goes to power supply female sata same one that connects to a hard drive and only supplies power.
Second pic is a pwm splitter/hub, input port goes to the mobo fan port and the other six go to fans. This one can be controlled via bios.

To control the fan speed via mobo bios and fan headers you might need a couple of these https://www.pccasegear.com/products/35671/cablemod-4-pin-fan-to-3x-4-pin-fan-y-cable-black-10cm provided the fans have standard 3/4 pin connectors, some led fans have proprietary connections which incorporate the led

Also if you have to go dig up another sata cable (one from the power supply) be sure to use the one that came with it and not a different branded cable, a lot of power supplies are wired differently at psu end. From memory those corsairs had "type 3/4" inked on the end of the cable. Don't want to fry anything

Thanks mate. The problem is, there are no sockets on the MB for these 15-pin SATA plugs.
The Asus MB and case manuals don't say anything about the connection of the built-in fans. There is a sort of reasonably detailed manual with the LIAN LI fans, but it still doesn't make sense to me...probably lacking too much basic knowledge.
I'm not surprised too much that the LIAN Li's are causing me grief, but having an Asus case and MB, hooking up the completely wired built-in's should be pretty straightforward I thought.
Btw, the 2 plugs on the left are from the front built-in's, the plugs and controller on the right belong to the LIAN LI's.
The Sata plugs go to the power supply, just like a hard drive. If you want the mobo to control the lights then you unplug led from the controller and plug it into the mobo

Set felt nice thanks

The Sata cables will supply the power to the controller and will power the fans at full speed, unless the controller has buttons on it (to change fan speed) or a connector to fit to a mobo fan connector. The fan controller may have a usb connector allowing connection to the mobo and control via software, it could also have an led connector to mobo. Shouldn't need the molex connector as the Sata supplies power and molex is pretty shit.
What does the manual say for these devices?
Edit, Just re-read your post, should only need the Sata cables, the fan hubs handle everything if they don't have usb, 4/3pin fan or led connectors

Bit of a bummer running out of fuel just before the last turn, fuel calcs are off. The Mazda felt like a boat, I didn't try too hard at sorting it out so I was a little wobbly. Entertaining racing, three wide, bumping and grinding. Got into a slide almost every turn (which is why I got turned around, my fault really). Good fun thanks guys.
