    Hi everyone, here we are with my personal settings for the Thrustmaster T300RS for the PC version of Assetto Corsa.

    Thrustmaster Control Panel
    • Degree of Rotation: 900°
    • Overall FFB: 100%
    • Constant: 100%
    • Periodic: 100%
    • Spring: 100%
    • Damper: 0%
    • Auto-Center: by the game

    In-game settings
    • Degree of Rotation: 900°
    • Gain: 53%
    • Filter: 0%
    • Minimum Force: 6%
    • Kerb Effects: 0%
    • Road Effects: 0%
    • Slip Effects: 0%
    • ABS effects: 20%
    • Gamma: 1.00
    • Filter: 0.00
    • Speed Sensitivity: 0.00
    • Brake Gamma: 3.80
    GYRO trick (thanks to @Michael Hornbuckle)
    Open assettocorsa\system\cfg\assetto_corsa.ini using Notepad:
    [FF_EXPERIMENTAL]
    ENABLE_GYRO=1
    DAMPER_MIN_LEVEL=0
    DAMPER_GAIN=1.0

    Have a look at the settings below (sorry for some italian UI :D)
    I hope this helps someone else with the T300 to get a more immersive FFB feel.

    What's the difference between this and reversing the strength values (ex. TM Overall FFB=70%, then in-game Gain=80%)?

    Here is what I use:
    FFB settings with GYRO enabled:
    IMPORTANT: go to :\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\system\cfg and open the Assetto Corsa INI using Notepad.
    Go to the [FF_EXPERIMENTAL] section and set ENABLE_ GYRO=1 and set DAMPER_MIN_LEVEL=0.01 and save. Should look like this:
    [FF_EXPERIMENTAL]
    ENABLE_GYRO=1
    DAMPER_MIN_LEVEL=0.01
    DAMPER_GAIN=1.0

    IMPORTANT: go to :\Documents\Assetto Corsa\cfg and open the ff_post_process INI using Notepad and make sure that it looks like this:
    [HEADER]
    VERSION=1
    TYPE=LUT
    ENABLED=0

    [GAMMA]
    VALUE=0.5

    [LUT]
    CURVE=doesn't_matter.lut
    ----------------------------
    In the Thrustmaster control panel:
    Overall Strength: 90%
    Constant: 100%
    Periodic: 100%
    Spring: 0%
    Damper: 100%
    Auto-center: By the game
    --------------------
    In game:
    Gain: 80%
    Filter: 0%
    Min force: 6%
    Kerb: 0%
    Road: 0%
    Slip: 0%
    Understeer: UNCHECKED

    (total FFB strenght) = (TM overall FFB) x (in-game gain)
    mine total strenght is 0,9 x 0,6 = 0,54

    You can swap the values as you wish, just keep in mind the proportion.
    With your example the total FFB strenght is 0,7 x 0,8 = 0,56 and it's pretty close to mine (only 2% difference).

    Guys, do you use 100% for each car (+/- key on numpad), as personal setting? Or do you decrease it? I just wonder about your overall strength settings, since I use only 60% strength in Thrustmaster settings and appr. 70% in AC.

    Every now and then I will adjust a few percentage either way for a mod car, but for 99% of vanilla content I leave it at the default 100.

    I use the FFBClip app, so it adjusts automatically depending on the mode (I use Light mode). Values vary around the range 95-105.

    I highly recommend you use some spring setting. Spring is where the ffb for understeer comes from and with a 0 setting it will feel quite numb.

    I have a T500, but here are my settings:

    Thrustmaster panel:
    Strength = 60% (for T500 this is the most linear reponse)
    Constant = 100%
    Periodic = 100%
    Spring = 100%
    Damper = 20%

    In AC:
    Strength = 81%
    Filter = 10% (probably not needed on T300, its harsh on T500 due to strength)
    Min Force = 4%

    Effects:
    Curb = 45%
    Road - 38%
    Slip = 27%

    No changes to config file, GAMMA or anything else.

    I used Michael's settings. The .ini changes really made a difference.

    Me to. Did not know about that gyro stuff but it turned out to be really good. I will give a try now to the settings above from mikey, reg. the spring and strength. 90% strength in TM panel is way too much.

    I have a T300 since little time ago and with this config -except Damper=0 for me- is the best I tried so, many thanks, Michael.

    I have to take a look putting some value to Spring, as some of you said.
