Am I slow or is it wheel g27

    Can anyone help.
    Before moving to a wheel and pedals (Logitech G27) I was able to compete at the front within online races on assetto corsa.

    After getting a wheel it is impossible for me to be competitive online, I have gone back to single player aspect of game and can get nowhere near any of the times on hotlaps etc, in most cases 3 or 4 seconds off bronze times.

    I've tried the same setups from all over the web, watched You-tube videos, used those setup and just can't get anywhere near even bronze times. I've spent ages trying different setups of my own.

    I've tried many different settings for the logitech wheel and just can't find a sweet spot to get the times down, I can recreate the same times with different settings about 3-4 seconds off bronze still.

    It seems like I have less traction out of corners and can't brake as late, even with the same setups...

    I have even tried out my previous 360 controller but can't really use that competitively either now.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    You're just experiencing what it's like to move from one mode of doing something to another. Give yourself time to learn how to drive with a wheel and pedals, and pretty soon you'll be even faster than you were with a controller, and you'll wonder how you ever kept the car on track using a controller.

    When I first started getting interested in racing games I was on a controller too, but then I made the transition to a wheel and really struggled to begin with (just ask @Aidan Keranen :p), but the more you practice, the better you get.

    Just be patient and practice practice practice :)

    Yeah, I'm still transitioning.
    I struggle with the feel, my braking is all over the place, gear changes feel slower and clunkier. But Compared to probably 170 hours of controller time, I've racked up less than 10 with a wheel.
    It hurts to suddenly end up shuffling back through the field, but at the same time I know that it's a case of taking the pain now for the gain in the future.
    At some stage I'll hit my brake points, I'll have great traction and I'll have fantastic feel through the corners etc. Not a case of if, but when.

    So stick with it, I'll be doing so.

    I couldnt understand for a long time how I could be so slow going from x-box 360 controller to my first wheel. Took a long time. It's just a totally different thing. You have to relearn basically from scratch. Also the previous controller makes it difficult to cope because of built in assists to compensate the huge disadvantage of having buttons, instead of pressure, and such small limited range of motion.

    I will just repost my reply to someone on reddit.

    Go here:

    Download the two files at the bottom of the post.

    Install the FFB Clip in your assettocorsa/apps/python and then enable it under general in settings at the bottom.

    Then once you're in-game, go to the right side of the screen and find it at the bottom of the app list. Change gain type from car setup to main menu and drive with your fav car/track combo until the app tells you what gain you should be using .

    Run wheelcheck.exe and under spring force select "min force" test a few times and make sure your offset x at the top is always at 0(if it's not you won't get accurate results). you will be given a percentage at the very bottom of the app use that as minimum force in advanced ffb settings.

    The kerb - slip - road are purely subjective but I run slip at 5% and road at 20%.

    The reason for doing all of this is that you will improve much faster if your wheel settings are on point. As someone who has a g27 for 6 months now and used mouse steering before this will help you most.

    If you have a new G27 should not be that, but it is good to check control panel if your pedals are responding properly... the mine had dirty that apply brake and could not hold full throttle properly

    G27 is good stuff - even Max Verstappen uses one.

    G27 is a great great wheel. I love mine.
