    Hello all!

    I'm wondering what steering lock setting are you using with this wheel? I've used the default setting (12-14 degree), I felt driving at the limit, but I'm always 5-6 secs behind from the top times in multiplayer.
    Then I set 22-24 degree and improve 1-2 secs but I feel oversteer in fast corners.

    So the question is: what steerling lock should I use overall?

    Regards

    It's about 90-95 degree rotation from the center so it has a 180-200 rotation in overall, if Im correct

    To give you an idea, I'm using 27 in game with a wheel at 900 degrees rotation. Which makes yours extremely tight, obviously with that wheel you can't go to 900 degrees.

    You should use the one that is comfortable, try increasing your steering lock to your wheels maximum and then play around with your steering lock.

    To make clear to me: for example in game steering lock "20" means that turning the wheel with 20 degree the car's tyre turn with 1 degree?

    I use 14.5 or 15, it appears that that is the default setup for the wheel. But it works fine for me

    I used to use 18-20. It's not ideal as it can be a bit twitchy but with only 200deg is the only way to have a little bit extra in reserve for when things go belly up.

    I use 540 rotation with 18 degrees of lock - to get a similar ratio to that you would be looking at about 7 degrees of lock ingame. Obviously that is way too low so i would recommend trying something around 13-15

    I own a Formula Force/Driving Force EX as well, but I would know next to nothing about steering lock. Sorry. :disapointed:

    Thanks for the replies!

    I did some testing in the past day with steering lock, and found that 21-24 lock works for me the best, altough sometimes in fast corners the tyres turn in too much, so the car leave the raceline (can handled with some practice), but if I take a mistake, I can correct easier.

    I still behind the top times with 3-4 secs, but Im playing the game with wheel only for a half year, hope I can improve. I want to play more online but dont know that is a reasonable decision to participate in the racing club with such a low performance.
