    I have my throttle and brake pedal ingame set to 100% sensitivity but i still have to push the brake and throttle in half way (on G25) before anything happens. Where as with other games like GTR2 and rFactor i set it to 100% sensitivity and they work from the first little tap of the pedal.

    Deadzone set to 0%? Also, try rebinding the pedal.

    Sounds like either your pedal needs calibrated or your center axis is screwed up, have a look in your controlset folder and open your pedal file, then have a look at whatever axis your pedal is on and look for
    Axis [00, 01] Center="1.00000"
    if it is set to 0.50000 then just change it to the above.

    ah remapping the pedals worked :) now the BMW is even more of a challenge lol.

    Set to 50%, the pedal(s) give linear response over their entire travel. Set to 100% they give quicker response either in the first half of their travel and slower in the second half. Set to 0% they give the opposite.

    That's called "exponential" response and is available in the more expensive Radio Control systems used with R/C model airplanes.

    Set your pedals to 50% and they signal the game to do exactly what you do with your pedals. Move the pedal 1/3 down, and the game will give you 1/3 brakes or 1/3 throttle.

    EDIT: I deleted all profiles and made new ones, new control settings and after that I remapped those pedals and works well even brakes and clutch

    I use 0% throttle sens for all cars, and keep my brake at 30%.

    I find at 0% i have more control exiting corners...in FWD less torque steer, and in RWD less oversteer.

    With the brakes lowered I have found that if i manage to lock up the brakes, I cna slightly ease off the brake pedal and unlock without sliding right through the corner.

    Is that in-game settings, or settings in the logitech profiler?

    I have my throttle and brake at 85% in-game, and both at 100% in my profiler.

    do you think that the steering wheel sensitivity will have this effect too ?

    Does anyone have the Clubsport pedals? Having a tough time getting a feel with them with Race On at the moment. Probably just need to get use to them with this sim. I'd have to double check but I think they were at default, 50% sensitivity for brake and throttle. Any suggestions?

    If you are spinning out (oversteer) when on the throttle try to lower the throttle sens to 0% like Keith "Book It" B suggested. I use it always on RWD cars to get a better feeling when putting the power down :) FWD i leave on 50% btw

    Very interesting. It is my understanding that the sensitivity values represents the "linearity" of pedal response with 50% being a 1-1 pedal input to encoder output. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong as my wife repeatedly informs me that I am often wrong.

    Linearity and sensitivity are two different things. Sensitivity is supposed to control the max axis value, meaning lower settings make your controls feel smoother. Linearity adjusts where most of the axis movement takes place. That's a pretty rubbish explanation, but I'm sure Wikipedia or something has a better explanation of both.

    Edit:

    Here is a guide which has graphs. Its for joysticks, but the principles are identical. Section 1.2.

    They're contracted to do that. It's the part that's in invisble ink when we sign on the dotted line that day!

    Ive had problems with this for a while , i asumed it worked like the literal term 0 to 100 % sensitivity. But after playing around with the setting i did find the same and run on about 20% throttle and brake for all rwd cars and 50% for fwd. Wow what a difference it makes and turn to 0 % for when in the wet. For me this is as important as a car setup and often overlooked .
    I showed this to a couple of freinds who only drove fwd for this reason always spinning out. Now they are rwd fans, (and faster than me again)

    :) We all feel the same of course. Not that we necessarily ARE wrong, hehe.

    So with this setting I have slow response on the first half of the throttle pedal and quick response on the second half (like daRock wrote)?
