[Download] Steering Ratio Calculator v1.1

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by Maximus787, Jun 20, 2012.

  1. NOTE: This is an update/follow up to the original thread here which is locked and the download link is dead. Mods, please redirect users from the old thread to here.

    I made an Excel program that calculates the appropriate steering lock for various steering ratios, and steering rotations for the Race07 game series. Works with any wheel and any ratio you want.

    All you need to enter is the steering wheel rotation you want to use (real wheel), and the program calculates the Steering Lock value that you need to adjust in-game to get the steering ratio you're after.
    The steering ratios cover everything from F1 cars to road cars.

    There is also a sample of FFB settings for the Logitech G25/G27 included in the file (2nd sheet).

    Please PM me if you need help with the program, or can't figure out how to use it.

  2. Just out of curiosity, what version of excel do people need to use this?
     
  3. Should work with Office 2010 and 2007.
    Let me know if anyone has trouble opening it.
    I can upload another file that works with older Office versions.
     
  4. Ha, and people have in the past doubted my use of max setting w/ 900 degree wheel. :p
    (ok, so those were technically different cars, but still.)

    Neat tool you have here.

    Could you convert it to work with my Office 2003 ?

  7. the actual rotation value (how many turn per lock) depends on your steering ratio. If you have a lower/faster ratio, then obviously your rotation value or the number of turn to lock will be lower. Higher/slower ratio means you have a higher rotation lock-to-lock. A car with a 8.1 turn less to lock than a 15.1 ratio

    The correct rotation value = your steering lock value / your car steering angle x 360 = your true rotation. Why put 900 degree?
