Forces can sometimes be weak, but thats a limit of the G25; only so much you can get out of a 'toy', at least it can't break our thumbs..
I don't think it's a hardware issue, the G25 can put out considerable weight and feel at force 1500. I think it's more a coding issue.
Basically you can set the maxforce to not exceed 100% (around 3500) for extreme cases like cornering high speed, high G over a bumpy surface, and have the other 97% of the time your driving feel sloppy and unresponsive.
Or you can set the max force to exceed 100% occasionally (around 2000-2250) in extreme situations and feel tight, precise and heavy 97% of the other time.
Personally I prefer the precise feel of a low max force, but I'm still experimenting. (There's nothing worse than a sloppy feel to the wheel)
