    It looks like we are going to have very warm tyres if you boot it all around the track...

    Another shout out and a big thumbs up @Denis Betty,
    whilst on Tspeak Denis heard me mumbling about my wheel and new shifter not playing ball in how it is seen in the game (sorry Sim) and the the wheel felt a bit dead in game
    Wheel =Thrustmaster T500 rs
    Gear selector = TH8a
    Pedels = fanatic v2
    When i first set it up, the Wheel was controller 1 (good feel in game and i could adjust the sensitivity of the axis.
    And now in game it was reading the gear selector as controller 1 and my pedals as controller 2. The wheel was controller 3.
    The wheel was not responding as it did almost feeling dead..there was still ffb but it was weird..
    So the solution as daft as it may seem is to uninstall the software for the TH8a and just plug it in.....

    After a reboot it was all as it should and after another restart they still kept the same config and controller number 1 was still my wheel...
    Turns out the software makes the TH8a shifter appear as controller 1 in game... (that is ok as long as the wheel is controller 2, but mine did not do that no matter how i tried.. )
    My shifter does not plug into the wheel but with a USB direct to the pc..

    So check your input device in controller in game and see if the wheel is controller 1 or 2, if it controller 3, you might want to check the feel of your wheel..

    Now i have ran out of racing excuses on my poor driving... its all down to me....
    time to practice..practice and practice some more..

    The reason for checking this was for driving the American muscle cars.. They feel a bit dead in the wheel as if there is a dead spot in the wheel when centered. By turning up the linear movement to say 75% the car turns in a lot better and i am also finding it easier to catch the slides.. (normally 50% is good). But dont forget to turn it back down when driving other cars if needed.

    here is answer from mecanic about a discussion lately: The in-game wheel rotation degrees divided by the steering lock gives you the “steering ratio”. EG 500 degrees of rotation divided by a steering lock of 16 degrees equals 31.25. This is handy to know if sharing sets with a driver who uses a different ingame wheel setting. It allows you to quickly convert the steering ratio to suit your settings or preferences.
