    I have both Fanatec Clubsport Formula Rim and BMW GT3 Wheel.

    Is there anyway way I can use the left side joystick on the wheels for the glancing left/right option in the game?
    Being able to use this would be preferable...as I'm sure you would be able to control how far you could glance in any direction....up, down, left or right.....almost Oculus Rift style you could say...

    I would like to be able to use that also but, I believe that was suggested and might be possible in the future.

    I posted about this in the AC forums. Luca said they would look into mapping this later on as RaceNut has said.

    (off-topic) Somewhere I have seen there is the possibility to use the side joystick as a mouse (I'll post it if I find it).

    Yes ...that option is in the Fanatec wheel software what you use to calibrate the wheel.
    I did try it but it just made the mouse cursor appear on screen while driving ingame....
    I'll look into it more see if there is a way round it.

    The mouse option is available in the 177 beta driver. I don't have any issues with the cursor staying on screen though. The mouse can be activated / deactivated by pressing the bottom right black button on the wheel.

    Edit: The activation button may also be configurable - can't check atm as I'm in the middle of building a new rig.

    Yes, I would like to use the mini joystick on my CSR to glance left/right/back. I'm surprised this was overlooked considering the Fanatec relationship with the game.
