    New to rFactor and general pc racing, why does my fanatec turn at such a different rate than the in game wheel?

    Are you talking about the wheel that is shown in the cockpit view? Not a physical wheel difference right? I (and most people I would think) turn off the wheel graphic (so it just doesn't show the wheel in cockpit view) (in either the difficult or graphics menus, I honestly can't remember which menu, sorry). Helps me not think about it. ;) Drive whatever is the most comfortable steering lock for you, either realism or comfort. I probably didn't help you much, but I tried. :)

    I've thought about it but I like having the hud on the wheel in the cockpit view instead of the little animated ones. I'm trying to go for the most realistic steering lock possible. Currently using MeganeTrophyV2.0.

    Go into your UserData folder, and open the Controller.ini file. A bit down the page there should be a line saying "Steering wheel range=270" or something to that effect. Change that to whatever your rotation setting is on your Fanatec, and the ingame wheel movement should correspond to your real-life wheel movement.
