    It may be a boat, but the Glen is not too demanding with regard to nimble handling, plus it's quite wide.

    We'll be OK

    All look in here for GTL setups: here

    The threads are based on "Class - Model" so you look for the GTC65 - Corvette65 setups thread : here

    I actually quite dislike the 65 vette, but I am going to go out on a limb and sign up.

    Forgot to mention one thing though about the FFB strength settings. If you set the strength too high you will loose a lot of detail in the feedback because the sim is asking for more torque than your steering wheel can provide.

    For instance if you have a steering arm force like this when going through a corner:
    [​IMG]
    If you set the strength too high you will reach the limit of your steering wheel (black line in picture below) very early and after that the force will be constant and equal to the limit of your wheel. Thus you will not be able to detect the variation of the feedback force that is actually occuring:​
    [​IMG]
    Now if you decrease the strength setting you will not reach the limit and you will get all the feedback through the wheel:​

    To find a good setting, I usually run some tests on a bumpy circuit with different settings from 50-100% until I find a setting that is both strong enough and detailed enough.

    I still use Warren's settings to this day too - they are the settings I posted for Magnus in his "help" thread the other day - and I use 75% effect strength by default, so we're pretty close. :D

    Warren is The Man.
