um hi, im a bit of a noob on setups but anyway as the title says i have massive understeer on nearly all cars in the game, so much so that to get full lock i have to be under 20mph, umm is there anything i can do. my wheel's profile is based on the default logitech momo profile simbin have provided, i have increased the speed sensitve steering to 100% and that made a bit of a change for the better, anything else i can do?

If your using the defualt logitech setting with the rotation set around 200 degrees and you hitting full lock on all the cars via Wheel, I would suggest you increase the cars lock till you get to be around 90% of your full roation.

This will not reduce the amount of understeer thats done by either reducing the front ARB or uncreasing the rear ARB.

I would think that speed sensitive steering would make the problem worse. I have the same wheel and I turn it off completely.

If you have this problem with nearly all cars, then maybe you're just taking corners too fast. Maybe try braking sooner.

Some ARB tweaking helps to fine-tune the car for understeer/oversteer.

More direct steering feel. The car will do what you tell him to do, independetly which speed you are travelling at. Although i have it at 10% not at full 0, bit more comfortable for me not to have too nervous response at high speeds.

Well, with a G25, you have the full range of movement like most real race cars. Setting the wheel turning far is supposed to give you a nervous steering when going faster, thus it's a compromise. :) A bit cheaty to do those things if you have 2.5 turns of lock available I think. Actually it could be compared with all the other driver aids (even though some exist on the real cars and should be used under normal racing circumstances).

You can also lower the differential settings of the car.
They tend to have quite high/stiff standard settings.
That should make cornering more easy.

I was under the impression that steering sensitivity was the same as linearity. Therefore 50% = completely linear. Which is what people usually suggest. I'd be especially interested to hear an opinion from you Atti since your lap times are freakishly fast.

If you're referring to the post above about speed sensitive steering (which depends on the speed your car is travelling and should be 0% for 1:1 input), that is a separate setting to steering sensitivity, which is 1:1 at 50% as you described

although I believe sensitivity is about making the line steeper or shallower rather than curving it, whereas linearity is curving the line so that when you turn the wheel a smaller amount, it has a bigger or smaller effect than it ordinarily would. :)

Oh Yeah! I was getting confused. I only just realised everybody's talking about 'speed sensitive steering' and I was thinking of 'steering sensitivity'.
Phew. Thought I had been playing with non-linear steering (or whatever it is) for a minute there. Cheers Zogger:thumb:
