    May be a possibility as D7 has been running only 7 or 8 drivers for the past 3 weeks. Up to the snail gods, but I wouldn't mind.

    I enjoyed all the combos this week and felt like I made a little progress every lap. D1 ended early so I started the Senna events.

    Who ever gets to pick the prizes this week... Formula Ford, Please!

    Follow Bruce Anstey on his way to a new Dainese Superbike Race lap record of 132.298mph at the Isle of Man TT 2014.

    Hello guys,

    This is a question for G27 users. How many of you are using a different setting than the default 900 degree on GTA?
    Can I improve my lap times changing the default setting?

    When I first got my G27, I didn't know how to change the settings, so I used the default. Once I learned how to change it, I always used the "O" setting, which I think is 670*. However, when the first round started, I tried the next setting, which is something like 440* (I'm guessing here) - this is the "square" button, and have used that one almost exclusively for everything. For good or bad habits, it's the one I've become most accustomed to.

    Will it make you faster, maybe. I know @Dragonwhisky feels strongly (as do I and others), that at least going to the 670* setting gives you more control and less of a deadzone.

    question.. I just did the time trial, and my GT6 name is my last name. Can I just use my PSN?

    Then you add one more wheel and a "monkey"... Then it gets really crazy!

    All 4 settings (TSOX) get rid of the dead zone. I've used the O (670) setting exclusively since being able to set it. When I did the last Senna TT I did change it to the S setting and was able to shave a couple more tenths off my previous best to get that thing golded.

    Almost all of the records SNAIL keeps for drivers is keyed off their PSN names. We probably ought to remove that GT6 name field from the TT form.

    The D6 replays should be in the open replay folder. @hognhominy put them in there a couple hours ago.

    i switched to the 670 setting and never looked back. I can catch slides so much easier. It really speeds up the response. I think it really helped me improve my speed but more importantly it improved my consistency

    @quattpequatt Speed recovery for you and your family! If needed, we can try to help you out! ;) Hope to be able to battle it out again on the track soon.

    For D2, apart from being a bit anxious and having to say a crap load of sorry all night long, I guess it was a pretty good night. Guess I'll join the yellow room this week.

    The only thing that made me sad is that most of the time I somehow did the same mistake of the person ahead of me and the car of course behaved the same, but always I said hello to the wall while the guy ahead of me saved it and went to the podium. :( And I thought I had a podium secured with the RX-7, but it decided to ditch me. :( :lol:

    I recently made the switch to less than 900° rotation and have found it to be a good decision for me
    I use 670° setting

    I have been known (unless the car does some crazy understeering) to set it to the full 240° T (for Twitchy) setting just because of how responsive it really is and how easy it is to catch oversteer (and I really really love it for rally racing).

    Otherwise, I will typically run the 450° S setting.

    Thank you all for your prompt replies!!
    I see a preference for the 670 setting so I'll give it a try :)

    Always remember every time the game "unloads" it reverts to 900...at least that is what mine did. As I assuredly turned my wheel and went more or less in an arc into the kitty litter. :ouch:I use 450 for everything as I will need it for tight hairpins and it is more like the quick steering I'm used to. Mostly, except for the station hairpin at Monaco, all except the 900 are useable IMHO.

    670 also.

    Speaking of the dead zone, the last two times I've plugged in my wheel, it seems the dead zone has increased. Even when I switch settings from default to any of the other settings, it's still there and was never this bad before. I've switched from power assist on and off, increased and decreased the FFB and still no change. Anyone else have this issue with the G27 before or after the update?

    I am very interested in this. What do I need to do to get involved?
