    Morning all,

    I was playing around in the old DTM demo a bit yesterday in getting my wheel to match the virtual wheel and would like to know what other people are using. I have a Fanatac GTRS v2

    I'd really like to get it to match IRL as much as possible (eg: if Robert Wickens only has 200 degrees of steering lock I want the same)

    So does anyone know how much steering lock the actual DTM cars have?

    I've come across a couple of older threads mentions 540 degrees but this may have before DTM switched to f1 style wheels.

    I've found that going off the virtual wheel 200 degrees in the fanatec profiler seemed like the max I could go before the virtual arms didn't turn any more (even with making adjustments to steering lock in vehicle settings) I know the steering wheel can turn more than this if you turn off virtual arms but if it's then not realistic I'm not keen on that.

    So any input would be great, is 200 degrees the way to go? Mind you 200 degrees felt twitchy as all hell!

    who cares

    I user 540/24, gives me a naturel feeling and I can take every corner without any problems. I have the visual wheel turned off.
