My MOMO wheel is drifting off center. It usually goes to the left. The only solution is to stop, turn full right and left, then let the wheel center. Obviously this results in losing the race. The wheel works fine otherwise. Is this a Logitech Gaming Software problem. I have tired turning off force feed back and I took it apart (without touching anything) to see if I could repair it. Everything (gears and wires) looked fine.
What is up with this. Has Logitech crippled our MOMO wheels through LGS to force us to buy a $300 G27? I do a lot of racing (for real and in games) and I require a quality wheel. But $300 is more than I am wiiting to spend.

Have you tried running the Clear calibration utility. I have linked it here:

I have found the problem is with the Logitech Gaming Software.
I found that if I exit LGS (ignoring the "This will cause you Logitech controller to amlfunction") the wheel work just fine.
I will try the Clear calibration, but I don't think it will work.
The wheel starts off fine, but during a race it feels as if when you steer too quickly something in the force feedback motor slips and I find that I have to hold the wheel at a 60 degree angle to travel in a straight line. Eventually I run out of wheel travel and I can long longer turn (usually to the left).
I will report if Clear calibration works.

The Clear calibration is only for Windows XP.
I am using Windows 7 Pro x64.
Will it work?
Or will your sugestion to use an XP program screw up my W7 registry?!
The wheel (my second MOMO) is about 2 years old but still very functional, and it is the best wheel I have ever tried.
I only noticed these problems in November 2010 after I bought NFS: Hot Pursuit.
At first I thought it was a bug in NFS:HP but then I found it was occuring in all games.
Some more than others.

The Clear calibration won't work on Windows 7. I wasn't sure which OS you had.
Have you tried uninstalling Logitech Gaming Software and using the wheel that way?

I am at my wits end. I give up on this and Logitech wheels. You have priced yourself out out the market with your current product offerings. Most people are not willing to spend $300 to play a $50 game/toy unless they are professional racers. I am an amateur racer and I rely on practicing my skills at home, S A F E L Y , before I hit the track. This centering issue is very common with many Logitech wheels. You are getting a lot of bad press all over the internet. I believe it may be a Microsoft Windows issue. Your LGS driver should deal with and/or over ride any Windows drivers. I have tried -
1. LGS 5.10, With Force Feedback and without.
2. LGS 5.02, With Force Feedback and without.
3. LGS 4.60 - Not compatible with x64
4. No LGS, Windows driver only
5. No LGS, Windows driver, No Force Feedback.
I first noticed the issue when I bought Need for Speed Hot Pursuit in November 2010. But it exists in all software now. NFS: Shift, NFS: Underground, NFS: Carbon, NFS: Shift 2, Flatout 2, DiRT 2, Burnout Paradise, TrackMania, and most importantly F1-2010 driving simulator. Could NFS:HP have 'broken' my wheel? Was there a Windows 7 Pro x64 automatic update that could be interfering with your USB FF interface? I Looked inside of the wheel, it appears well constructed and nothing is broken.
I am going to use a Xbox 360 gamepad, Yeech! At least it is reliable. Time is overdue for version 6.10 of LGS. Your driver is over a year old and is not working for a lot of your customers.
Present and soon to be former.

I have this exact same problem with all games and am quite disappointed with the product.
It almost always happens if I touch a wall or another car. The the wheel gets completely out of center (easily 45 degrees), meaning I run out of travel to one of the sides. Solution is only to turn the wheel full left and full right - usually undoable during a race.
Isn't there a way to turn off auto calibration or something? I mean... once it found its center, why does it keep doing it (and losing center)?
And what do you think of "MOMOTweak.exe."
