    For those of you lucky enough to be playing the game right now, I'd love to hear your experiences with your model of steering wheel and how everything feels relative to previous games you've played. I had the DFGT for GT5, and upgraded to the Thrustmaster T300 RS for Project Cars. While I haven't been thrilled with the performance, or more importantly, the consistency, I'm just wondering what people have been using with GTSport so far, and what knowledge you can share, as to what to expect, good or bad for as many wheels as we can compile.

    Thanks!

    I run on a T300 and it's similar to GT6 in ffb but I do notice some improvements like over bumps and kerbs. It still has the dead zone problem from GT6 but it's not major. Personally, I like it a lot more than F1 2016 and Project Cars.

    I have T300, and so far I'm pretty impressed. My thoughts here. I really need to get some more normal cars, particularly an FF and a good MR.

    I'm using the T300 and I get a pretty bad deadzone if it's not set to max FFB. The detail coming through the feedback is not as detailed as some other sims but still an improvement over GT6.

    I am with you on all these points - I would add that it's WAY better than GT6, but pales in comparison to PCars and AC.

    I used a Driving Force GT for GT6 and am using a G29 for GTS. Feels a bit more realistic to me. Could be mostly due to the differences in the wheels. I will have to play GT6 with the G29 to know for sure. However, after playing the beta, it will be hard to go back. ;-)

    I prefer the FFB on GTsport over AC to be honest. The unique feeling GTsport has is every car FFB feels different.

    Can you tell me if the FFB is strong with the G29 in GTS? I played GTS at an event with the T300 and the FFB (not really the FFB but rather the wheel resistence, the force you need to turn the wheel) was very very light (At least with the MX-5) compared to my experience with the G25 in GT6.

    Out of interest what manual degree rotation are you T300RS users using? (Mode button-Red flashes) would this make a difference to the centre wheel FFB? Like it has on other games for me?

    I've not read it anywhere but have we had any confirmation that the T500RS works with GT Sport?

    Only this screen on the Beta/demo (top right) showing you can adjust its settings, I am not sure I have read anyone testing one yet though :tup:

    I tried all different flash counts and none seemed to have any effect on the wheel rotation in in-car view, or on the steering itself.

    The FFB feels pretty solid so far. However, the game seems to think my Thrustmaster T3PA pedal set's clutch is actually my gas pedal, so there's that. I've heard of left foot braking (in fact, that's my preferred method of braking), but left foot throttle? XD

    If you're using a T300/T500 try pressing the Mode button on the wheel base, I use that to swap mine to left foot throttle.

    I'm using a G29 and I love it so far. I did turn the FFB and sensitivity up to 10 though to get some feeling from the wheels. I think I'm just used to Dirt Rally beating me to a pulp haha.

    Using G29 with clutch and h-pattern shifter. Noticed a bug (driving Hyundia Genesis street car) when I try to shift in to 3rd gear it goes into 4th on the game. Then try 5th and 6th and still shows 4th. 1st and 2nd gear were fine. Shifter works fine with Assetto Corsa

    Using a t300 and the ffb feels super light even on the max setting. Shifter also not working - do I need to plug it in separately?

    This is my first time playing Gran Turismo w/ a wheel, & I'm loving it! I can't see myself returning to a controller. I'm even drifting with it! I even won my fist daily match on the Japanese highway track using it (got my beta code yesterday). Loving this game! I also had practice playing Dirt Rally & DriveClub.

    Oh, & it's the Logitech G29. My only quam is the positioning of the PS, Share, & Option buttons.

    I'm currently playing GT Sport with a T500RS, and it's working beautifully. What's not working is the TH8RS shifter, but I suspect that this expected, and it will work with the retail version

    So you're happy with the physics using the T500? Do the cars have a nice weight to them?

    to be honest, I don't know. I have only raced karts IRL, so I'm not much of a driver, but what I can tell is that the cars seem to be more tame, even with all assists off. When playing iRacing or Project CARS, I constantly spin around. With GT Sport I seem to be able to keep my car on track for much, much longer. But the T500RS responds perfectly, with detailed FFB and stuff. Also, it seems we have Dynamic Wheel Angles now, I'll check more into that later today.

    Finding my 500 to be "light". Max ffb settings, still feels detached.

    I play without the shifter. Is there a way to remap the G29 pedals to turn the clutch into the brake?

    The only car I have that doesn't have paddle shifters is the Renault Megane, but for some reason I can't get the shifter on my G29 to work. I've double check the connections and still nothing. Works fine with Dirt Rally and Drive Club though. Assuming its just a beta issue.

    Troubling report about G29's not working with H-Shifter. Hope people post updates on their experiences.

    Are the guys using the shifter on the G27 or the G29 shifter?
