    I can´t get a good feeling with my wheel. I used the same settings for older Codemaster titles but it doesn´t feel right. Maybe someone can share his/her settings?

    On my TX, I've settled on 30/70/40. Unfortunately, I would prefer 30/65/40 but I can't change the strength in increments of 5. 60 feels pretty good for many cars and 70 feels good for others so I wish I had a 65 setting.

    Hi Lino, I don't think you can set preferences like rotation in game. I know my G27 had that option to set rotation on individual games though.

    Your going to have to change your wheel rotation to 360 or less in your wheel control panel. GRID Auto doesnt work well above 360 degrees.

    Using 900 deg and loving it, works real nice in the tin tops. I do turn down to 540 for the open wheelers, :)

    Not sure how you enjoy that Rupe unless you just prefer really slow steering. One of the developers, Loore, on the Steam forums even stated that optimal setting is around 300 degrees. At 900 degrees, it feel like the car is turning in a wet concrete. Even the cockpit wheel in game is set to somewhere around 300-360 degrees visually.

    I'm using TX on PC, pretty sure these would also apply to T500
    Game appears to default to 270 DOR. Below you will see the calculation for Steering Saturation giving you 1:1 steering at your highest wheel DOR
    TX Profiler
    Rotation: 900 (T500 = 1080)
    Overall Strength: 75 (default) 60 for T500
    Constant: 100
    Periodic: 100
    Spring: 100
    Damper: 100
    Auto-Center: by Game

    Vibration Settings = 40/70/40

    Advanced Options:
    Steering Deadzone: 0%
    Steering Saturation: 30% (270/900 = 30%) (T500 would be 270/1080 = 25%)
    Steering Linearity: 0
    Throttle Deadzone: 0%
    Throttle Saturation: 100%
    Brake Deadzone: 0%
    Brake Saturation: 100%
    I've only raced open wheel, have not tested any other cars.

    I'm currently using Daveo's settings, with my T500 set to 1080 degrees in the TM control panel, and the Steering Saturation set to 25%, but the car feels VERY "floaty." I know this is an old thread, but does anybody have any feedback on using the full 1080 degrees in the TM control panel and then adjusting the Steering Saturation accordingly versus limiting the rotation to 300 degrees in the TM control panel?

    My first few laps with the defaults, the overall steering feel seemed to feel a bit better, but there was WAY too much steering lock available.

    Using Daveo's settings, the steering lock feels about right, but now the car feels "floaty" and the steering feels a little more vague than it did previously.

    I'll play around on my own, just wondering if anybody is still kicking around in Grid -- I just picked it up cheap based on some recommendations I'd seen about the career mode. Seems like a good purchase so far, just need to get things properly tuned for the right "feel," and I think I'm going to have quite a bit of fun with it.

    Did some testing last night and I answered my own question -- I found that for me, limiting the rotation to 300 degrees in the TM control panel results in a much better steering feel than leaving the TM control panel setting at 1080 and then setting the Steering Saturation in-game to 25%.

    I'll update this post later to include all my controller settings, but at this point, I really like the way the wheel feels, and overall car control seems to have improved as well, with less of that "floaty" feeling I was experiencing previously.
