Unfortunately, TDU lacks force feedback. The only Profiler setting that works on a version 1.66 copy is Degrees of Rotation. If you somehow have an old copy at version 1.45, it will have force feedback, but you won’t be able to play online without updating. So many cars, so little rumble.

Solid Tip: H-shifter only applies to cars that really have them. Some cars, such as the Mercedes McClaren SLR, only use paddle shifters. Authentic: yes. Convenient: no.
