    If anyone would be kind enough to share their settings, I think myself and a lot of other people would really appreciate it. pCars has a ton of different settings so zeroing in the best settings is going to be hard for a lot of people, and near impossible for some.

    The issue I'm having with the default FFB settings is the lack of road and tire feel which frankly surprises me considering there's a Tire force slider but it doesn't seem to fix the problem.

    Also, I'm aware that there's some FFB settings in each cars setup but I'm confused exactly what they do.

    Basically the T300 works very good out of the box (on PC here).

    Thrustmaster settings:
    60 - 65
    100
    100
    0
    0
    900°

    Ingame, make sure you fully calibrate the wheel
    Set tyre force and force feedback to 100.
    And adjust the force in the car setup screen for every car individually (masterscale).
    I use values between 20 and 30, depending on the car, sometimes even on the track.

    Oh and don't forget to go to force feedback calibration and set deadzone removal to 0.2 and the deadzone value below to 0.1.

    That should be it for the T300 wheels.

    Deadzone removal did help me get rid of the biggest issue I was having but it's still feeling bad in some cars.

    In the Formula Rookie it feels pretty good. You can feel the road, feel the bumps. Then in the Caterham SP/300.R, it feels like I'm driving on air, no road feel whatsoever.

    I was finding that with 100% force in game, 0% damping and around 75% tyre force I was getting reasonable FFB on the T300.

    The last week I was mainly testing with my T500, and concluded that the Jack Spade tweaker files are the way to go (https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/t500rs-ffb-settings.328335/#post-10684671) . I've not got round to trying them with the T300, but if you are missing road feel those tweaker files "correct" car specific FFB and should make a huge difference.

    Try installing the tweaker files for Fy+SopLateral Mix and see what you think.

    a lot of folks increase the main FFB from the default 75 to 100, and an increase to 115 for tire force has also been recommended. these are the values I use myself and find the wheel pretty tough to manage for extended periods. that is, unless you lower the Fxyz values. these represent the directional force through the tyres. I personally enjoy a looser-feeling wheel, not ridiculously so, but I've gone for a lighter handling but still get the feeling through the tyres.

    as was mentioned above, the master scale will need adjusting per car, not a lot, but makes a difference. mine's on 30 most of the time as a starting point.

    I've actually got most cars on 20 for the master. The main FFB is on 65, but tire force on 150.

    I usually put Fx to 90, Fy to 80, and Fz 120-150 depending on the car.

    It's an improvement but I swear, if anyone can figure out settings to make the FFB feel just like Assetto Corsa I'll be in heaven

    Thank you sir. I will try them out immediately.

    I have one question hopefully someone can answer, what does the Mz scale setting do? The description is confusing. I'll probably just mess around with it on my own anyways but I'm just curious.

    Forgot to mention.
    Make sure you do the other settings mentioned in the thread ( force feedback 100% etc) before you update your cars.

    Can you post what settings exactly you use with your T300?
    Because when I tried Jack Spade tweaker with settings from his post it felt like a dumbed down version of what I had before.

    I was basically using it at stock settings just with force 100%, damping 0%, deadzone reduction 0.05 and tyre force at somewhere around 75%. But I still need to spend some quality time with it and the Jack Spade settings. I suspect I would agree with you for the T300, though, because it does work nicely with those default gain and scoop settings.

    It's a bit frustrating that pCARS doesn't let you save controller profiles... In AC or RaceRoom I just have two controller profiles set and switch between the T300 and T500 easily. For pCARS I would need to start from scratch and remap everything each time I switch... Gets annoying fast :(

    I can imagine.

    I'm finding that Jack Spades settings are great but with the T300, you really have to turn down the Master Scale and the SoP Scale for each car, otherwise the FFB is way too strong. Some cars you only gotta turn down by 4 but the Escort Mk1 I was just driving had to be turned down by 10

    It's still not perfect but it's a great start. I'm still not feeling the friction between the tires and the road like I do with AC, LFS, and even rFactor 2. I'm not entirely sure it'll be possible to get it feeling like AC.

    I copied Jack's settings exactly. The only thing I've changed so far is the Master Scale and the SoP scale. With his settings, the FFB is way too strong on the T300. He didn't make those settings with a T300 so that's probably why but the settings are much better than the default pCars settings that's for sure. I'm finding dropping the Master Scale and Sop Scale by 4-10 depending on the car makes the FFB reasonable. They should match eachother either way though

    I don't have a problem with the force feedback but might give it a go to compare.

    On a separate note I'd just like to say how much I'm enjoying choosing different cars and tracks and racing the ai, currently on 80% and racing the pants off the cars and if I give an inch they are in the gaps. Loving it.
    Also had some great online races, again I'm not up front but really enjoying the close racing. There are bugs but I'm hoping these will be fixed soon.

    completely agree with this. the other values seem pretty good, but I also turn the master scale/SoP down in some cars as it's still too strong. really liking the FFB now, definitively helps me get in the zone.

    I'm using Jack Spade settings as a base... but the Fy Scale is way too low. Can't feel a thing once the car is in a corner, like the steering goes light and it's disconnected from the wheel.

    I'm running FFB at 85 and Tire Force at 115. Then adding in Jack Spades settings, the notching all of the Fx//z/Mz scales up by 10, and the Fy Scale up by 30 or so. Fx Smoothing up 10, and Fy Smoothing up 10.

    SoP scales I'm leaving as is.

    The overall feeling in all of the GT4 cars (the ones I've used the most so far) are brilliant. So much feel.

    The only cars I can drive with a good feeling is the openwheelers, Formula A and down. All the other cars is not a pleassure for me to drive. I feel like i need to turn the wheel WAAAAAAY to much to make a turn and its like its not tight enough... I am not sure.. I don''t ever enter any races in career mode or online others than open wheelers.

    Tired of the game and looking forward to F1 2015. I tried so many different settings and options.

    I can beat the AI and win championships with 0 assists in openwheelers on 90%. But other cars I can't even keep up on 40%. :D When I watch other peole drives those other cars, they dont need to turn their wheel like I do.. I am not sure whats wrong :)

    Either calibrate the wheel to lower degrees of rotation, like 540, or increase the sensistivity. You could also increase the steering lock on the cars that are giving you trouble individually.

    I've had that problem you're having with MANY other games but not this one. Not sure why. You did calibrate your wheel to 900 not 1080 right?

    Yea I love the scalability of the AI. I'm finding with some series like karts, 80% is perfect for me. Others 70% is good. The fact that I still have 90 and 100% to use on top is really encouraging.
