    as per title. I started using a g27 and just couldn't drive it the dead zone was massive and ruined the game so i brought a thrustmaster tx wheel hoping it to be better but im still hating it on a wheel and i have gone back to a pad on the console rather than the pc version.

    Am i the only one who has wheel issues?

    It's designed for the pad...

    No issues here on the PC with a TX wheel, but the default wheel settings in game are terrible!

    I'm using 75%, FFB and 900 degrees in TM Control panel and in game I've got:

    FFB 100
    Vibration 100
    Sensitivity 100
    Linearity 50
    Understeer 110
    Min Force 110
    Damper 2
    Spring 0

    Hope this helps a little!

    You should also make sure your steering axis deadzones are set to 0 inside and 100 outside, all of my deadzones are at 0 inside and 100 outside except clutch which is 0 inside and 75 outside.

    Sorry if you already have this set up correctly, just thought I'd mention it just in case it was the cause of the issue.

    I'm using a G27, and it works fine--no weird dead zone. There must be a setting somewhere that's giving you that.

    I agree (also a TX), not the most detailed FFB but sure beats a gamepad without any. I think it defaulted to 1% deadzone which felt terrible - at 0% the wheel feels pretty good.
