Watching people fall off is very entertaining. Talk about pain trainer. So funny though.

Ray, in addition to the Fanatec wheel settings posted by Luiz (thanks Luiz), check out the settings video from Rory Alexander. Don’t forget, you need to set the wheel itself AND the in-game settings.


I realized both setting were off. It feels much better now. Thanks for the help.

I've been fooling around with my Fanatec wheel settings lately. Thanks for the recent postings on the subject. Nice to see I'm close to what other folks run. 1 area where I deviate is Sensitivity. Instead of letting the game choose with the "auto" setting, I've been using 680°-720° for formula type cars and my F1 eSports Wheel and 900° to 1080° for Rally Cars and my WRC Wheel. As 1 of our group's back-markers and slow-pokes, I'll say changing that 1 variable has made the 2nd biggest improvement to my driving, behind the many, many practice laps I've been putting down recently.
I was surprised to find that wheel settings carry from 1 wheel to the next, as if the settings are stored in the wheelbase. Is this correct? There must be memory on-board.

I spoke with some of y'all during this morning activities. I was asking if anyone would be interested in doing 1 endurance race per month. I really enjoy learning a track and car, usually simultaneously lol. If interested, what day of the week and time of day is good for most. When time allows, I'll copy the settings for Geezers next race and open a friend's only lobby for test and tune. If we have enough people, I'll host practice sessions a few times during the month leading up to the race. Thoughts and input appreciated.
 
Hi guys. I just wanted to apologize in advance if my driving is worse than usual tonight :).

I got the Logitech G Pro wheel and pedals late last week and I'm still getting used to the load cell breaks. I'm coming from the Thrustmaster T300 and T3PA pedals with a squash ball mod for some resistance haha. Needless to say its quite a change.

Looking forward to tonight's races. See you all later on.

So far, the first race will be Saturday, April 20th. Around 1700 EST. Does this work for those interested? That gives us a month to prepare. Once the date and time are good to go, I can concentrate on the car and track.

Joining tonite, looking foward to it!
 
Such a bummer. But, can easily be made into a 800 pp killer that can do Sardegna A 800 pp without stopping. And also win the new Le Mans 900 pp event totally stock. It’s an okay car.
