    Got to ask, but with windows compatible xbox type controllers costing so little, why would any one try driving with the keyboard? Do you pick the keyboard up and hold it like a steering wheel? :geek:

    Howdy all - keyboard is much tougher this year, but I've managed to make it work.
    It ain't pretty, but it works!
    I'll post my settings and setups when I get home.
    Hold caller....

    ok finally got normal solution for it.
    get any grip mod like grip mod of 10% and replace the original grip and now you will feel much better and faster than ai in legendary ai mode.

    I hope it'll work for you guys.

    I don't understand how can it be someone else's business how one drives in a bloody computer game. I've always used keyboard and will do to do so. I don't have time to set up the wheel and pedal combo every day and gamepads are just as far from reality as keyboards.

    Anyway, Spo0k, these are the settings I use:
    Firstly, set Override Input Device Type to Gamepad
    Secondly,
    Steering Deadzone: 10.00%
    Steering Saturation: 45%
    Steering Linearity: 60%
    Throttle Deadzone: 15%
    Throttle Saturation: 75%
    Brake Deadzone: 0%
    Brake Saturation: 20%

    I'm not using any grip mods.

    Good luck!

    Whoops - forgot to post my settings!
    Do you have enough turn-in with the deadzone so small?
    I found that I couldn't take any speed through corners with settings like that.

    Alrighty! Using the gamepad override:

    Steering Deadzone: 15.00%
    Steering Saturation: 2%
    Steering Linearity: 49%
    Throttle Deadzone: 1%
    Throttle Saturation: 2%
    Brake Deadzone: 0%
    Brake Saturation: 10%

    I try to set up the car with plenty of understeer (4/3 on the roll bars usually does well, plenty of rear downforce then adjust the front as required)

    Hope this helps!

    actually i already gave suggestion to use 10% grip that will help you, stable rear-end with it and it worked for many people just try it out

    personally, i use z and x for gas and brakes, up and down arrows for gears, and a and s for kers and drs

    *this is a configuration on a laptop keyboard*

    I use Space for brake, Numpad 0 for DRS and v for KERS. I use automatic gearbox, so I haven't thought about assigning keys for manual gears.
