After a year of playing and assuming that the poor feel and lack of ability to catch slides was a) i am a bit rubbish and b) my ancient wheel really isn't up to the task. However..that has all changed (i know it is relative and that a better wheel would improve things more) thanks to loading someones setup from a time trial and finding the steering SO much better. What it boils down to is knocking 5-8 degrees off the default steering lock. For every car it seems to make a huge difference. Maybe as the old wheel only rotates 180 degrees the defaults are not really right. Anyhow, my enjoyment of playing has completely changed. Guess i should have worked it out for myself long ago, but there we go !!
