the adavantages of a high sensitivity at wheel

Discussion in 'RaceRoom Racing Experience' started by luxtpm, Nov 14, 2014.

  1. i learnt that real drivers use low sensitivity something like 30:1 wheel lock ratio

    i use 10:1, 200º at my g25 and 21º lock in game with the sensitivity increased at 100%

    i read once in a motorbike magazine that when in an accident situation the bike brakes and turns more than you think

    so this is the high sensitivity advantage that you make it turn more than you really dare, not to mention practical faster reaction time for you have to turn the wheel less than if you had lower sensitivity

    so what steer ratios do you use and why?
    as i said i use 10:1 if i used 30:1 i would be like 2 seconds slower per lap

    mmm confused , my settings differ rarely , wtcc 540/19 adac 540/20 dtm 540/21.... this gives me more control ; i catch drifts easier etc and on fwd hang onto my tyres better . having such limited rotation is just to unrealistic for me , i tend to watch inboards of a lap in the car and see what his hands are doing at various corners ; with my settings im not far off

  3. i did some quick research

    seems im not so off the wall after all

    wait i dont understand, take the fbmw if i divide 450 among 20 it gives me, 22,5, why then the 11,2:1 ratio?

  4. I personally like 900/30 on almost everything. Works great in any situation.

    do it like this
    steering rotation/2/lock = ratio
    steering is how many degrees left or right of centre you move and how far the wheel moves
    so for you its
    200/2/21=4.76:1 which is why i think its a bit scary

    mine 540/2/19=14.2:1 i use that for fwd drives
    memots is 900/2/30=15

    both very similar

    Mine sometimes has to be set on the fly as some of the racing sims prefer the profiler set at 900degrees.

    In Race 07 I usually set 540deg with 17 to 23 degrees of lock depending on the car/track. If I mistakenly discover I'm running with 900, then I crank the lock number up to over 30.

    I never saw the maths before, that will make it easier to correct it in the future!
