    Believe only a wheel will work properly with iRacing. There isnt any real controller support.

    iracing isnt really set up for gamepad use. I would discourage it as well, as the tyre model can be finicky and the exaggerated controls of a gamepad will make it very hard to keep the car pointed straight, particularly with oval racing in the higher classes. You may be able to get away with the rookie legends cars with a gamepad, and might be able to do road racing acceptably. For iracing I could only suggest a proper wheel, doesnt have to be a good one but it will be very hard without one.

    As for deadzone, you cant control that in the game settings to my knowledge. Have a look at your xbox controller software out of the game, but I dont think there would be an option for this.

    Pointless to run a sim like this with a controller if you ask me. It works though.

    It works but definetly not as immersive. Which is kinda the point of sim racing :p Though if you merely want to win, a controller can work.....on of the top FSR drivers uses one :O

    There's also a young disabled guy who iRace's with an XBOX controller. Because of his disability a wheel is out of the question and he has devised a driving style that the controller allows him to compete with. He's not too bad either.

    I've also heard of folks driving using flightstick's (more commonly used for flight sims) but as others have said, to get the most out of iRacing, a wheel/pedal set is the way to go.
