    Hi guys, im new to this so sorry for any mistakes... I just brought a t300 gte wheel a few days ago and im having a hard time getting used to it ive tried settings from youtube and on forums but i still cant get used to it, ive been playing...
    Can anybody give me any advice or anything to help me get use to using a wheel because i love using it but i can do better with a keyboard. Ive been playing Assetto corsa, Forza horizon 3, project cars, dirt rally and of course some american truck simulator all on pc. Thanks to anyone who can help, any amount is appreciated : )

    Just takes time to get used to the new sensations and you need to get a bit stronger.

    Those are probably settings from the sims you are playing, for example, if you have your wheel at 900 and the car usually has a 360 wheel rotation, you will find yourself turning too much in order to get the correct input from your wheel. Check those settings and see if they help you.

    I set the control panel as (shown below)


    For Project Cars download the "Jack Spade" ffb mod, it is here in the downloads section, it totally transformed the game for alot of people.
    Assetto Corsa I play pretty much as stock, 100% gain, 0% filter, 15% min force, the canned effects to preference
    What does ats/est2 stand for?
