    If you are struggling with FFB here are the settings that I use:

    Intensity: 100%
    Smoothing: 0%
    FFB Spring: 20%
    Damper: 0%
    Steering Force: 75%
    Minimun Force: 20%
    Understeer: 60%
    Vertical: 100-180 depending on car (gives you better feel of tyres on road)
    Lateral: 50%
    Rack: 100%
    Slip: 75%
    Engine: 10%
    Kerb: 30%
    Shift: 30%

    Then just adjust your FFB Multiplier in your steering setup settings to keep your FFB within the yellow and red lines on the FFB graph.

    Thrustmaster 458 TX but it gives you a starting point if you have another wheel.

    I find Setting Rack to 0% & tweak the Vertical & Lateral to your liking(TX wheel) works for me :thumbsup:
    But I didn't use the Ops settings, I tweaked my own :)

    Was quite soft on a straight line(slightly floaty) & cornering especially, would lose some of the feedback slightly, wheel did to turn more easily though & is drivable.
    I've lowered my Steering Force to 91% now, but with all these sims its like trying to find the FFB Holy Grail :cautious:

    These are my WIP settings for a Thrustmaster TX with GTE rim
    Thrustmaster Profile:
    https://gyazo.com/70c02170c1e940e3b47992115bed6bf8
    I use Forced Fan ON to prevent overheating and FFB fading which happens alot when the fan is set to auto, as a safety device built into the motor automatically cuts the FFB strength once it hits a certain temp which also before the fan kicks in and will not return to full power again for 15-20 min.
    menu button + button 8 to turn on/off

    In game settings are not to far off the base settings for the TX

    https://gyazo.com/c318e13646393ed6de9d1047815a1e08

    few notes as to why i made some of the changes.
    Min. FFB Force i believe is defaulted to 10 or 20% which was way to much for me I also noticed and reported any strength above 6% was causing my wheel to rotate by itself in the pits and if i let go of my wheel on a straight the wheel would violently shake back and forth between 10 & 2 oclock resulting in a tank slapper.
    I used the wheel check app to calculate min force and it said 5-6% with this % the wheel still has alittle side to side movement on straights but does not upset the car causing a tank slapper.
    Lateral force i bumped up a tad as i felt very little force when turning
    Slip effect i believe is at default as i really dont know what this does other than adds alot of vibration through corners and when the wheels loose grip under acceleration
    Engine vibration default is just way to strong and nothing but a canned effect which causes too much noise in the wheel and drowns out other important details as its constantly buzzing the wheel
    Kerb effects default was causing alot of buzzing and rattling through the base of the wheel which has been eliminated by lowering it

    Well between us I'm sure we can come up with something. I find a lot of people go with a strong wheel and I think they're bodybuilders lol. I like some of Pauls settings and will try some of Mr Stutes later. I like road feel when driving in a straight line so I work with the vertical for that. Steering rack I've tried both ends of the scale but I don't know what the difference is. Sometimes I get some brake feel but then others I don't. I love this game but I don't want to end up like pcars and becoming obsessed with ffb settings lol. I tried Billy Strange's settings on inside sim racing but it felt too heavy and he also had the tmcp on default. I'm going to spend the day today trying to get my ffb right but if I don't find it then I'm not going to keep messing because you don't spend time racing.

    This is where I'm at, a bit of everyone's lol. These feel really nice with the WTCC 14 at Slovakia ring. I'm still unsure about the bottom Yellow line as sometimes it's close whether it goes under but you know what?? I like these settings and it doesn't matter what I change it still sometimes sails close to the bottom line so I'd say 80% happy plus it may be just that track.

    Let me know if you have a try. I definitely prefer 0% steering rack.

    Thanks, useful to know, I'm considering getting a TX base (as part of the package with the T3PA pedals and lovely leather 28 GT wheel rim) soon...

    I've found a setup I really like now.
    I've changed my Thrustmaster settings to what David Slute uses and then a combined set for the FFB:

    Intensity: 100%
    Smoothing: 5%
    FFB Spring: 10%
    Damper: 0%
    Steering Force: 75%
    Minimum Force: 6%
    Understeer: 75%
    Vertical: minimum 100% - may increase for different cars to get a good feel of being on the track.
    Lateral: 55%
    Rack: 100%
    Slip: 75%
    Engine: 10%
    Kerb: 30%
    Shift: 30%

    Then change the multiplier per car.
