Can someone tell me the real steering lock in WTCC cars?

I use 23 and would like to know if I am close or not.

Krzysiu you must search for steering ratio for a car, and then you can calculate steering lock for your steering wheel angle with this formula:

steering lock = steering wheel angle / steering ratio
(In this case steering wheel angle is half of lock to lock angle.)

for example:

BMW E46 M3 has the steering ratio = 15.4:1
steering lock = 360/15.4 = 23.3deg

That would be accurate for a 720 degree rotation, Marcin as that's only to one side.

((Lock to lock rotation) / 2) / Steering Ratio = Steering Lock Value

e.g. a DFP/G25 at 900 degrees:

450 / 15.4 = 29.2 degrees.

I usually use 450* for my DFGT wheel.

So 225 / 15.4 = 14.5* (14.61)

Am I right?

So it looks I am very far from the real settings.

EDIT:

By the way, what is the real wheel rotation in the sport cars?
