    Is it possible to use the gamepad as a sort of button box, mapping the up/down buttons to the brake bias for example, and potentially the joystick to be the handbrake?
    When i try to do it, the gamepad button/joystick just overwrites the wheel config and then the wheel doesnt work at all. I guess its because it thinks the left/right arrows are the same as left/right for the wheel. Apologies if i am being dim !!!

    I guess its Very much game dependent, I run a SRW-S1 as a button box and AC has no problem distinguishing between the 2 and what Axis have been set to.

    Xpadder should work no problems.
