Trying to understand the effect of steering lock.

My wheel has a fixed 270 degrees of rotation. Now I wonder what the effect of increasing or decreasing the steering lock is.
Am I right that increasing this means that the steering becomes less responsive and decreasing more responsive ?


Generally the higher the lock the twitchier it will feel if your wheel has low rotation. I also have 270 degrees on my wheel - 14 degrees steering lock is the default setting for this. So, start with 14 and then see how it goes; some cars I knock it up a click or two and sometimes down a click or two - generally the open wheelers use lower steering lock. But 14 degrees should definitely be your starting point (which, luckily for you, is the default setting in game)
I use 440 degres for 14 degres. If you want to understand the steering lock parameter, just go to monaco. Go to the hairpin of the Casino, turn 6. 14 degres is clearly not enough ;-)

I use this as a guide. Depending on the circuit block more or less. ;)
