    Been playing for about a week now on my first sim setup (Fanatec CSL Elite) and having an absolute blast. I have predominately been driving FWD cars, but the last couple of days I have been driving some more RWD cars too, The Porsche Carrera Cup (Super Boxer) to be exact.
    I am having quiet a bit of trouble in the acceleration zones with traction. I have realised now what I think the problem is. I have to push the throttle down a good 4cm to get the input to start to register. On the Fanatec properties page I only have to press down millimetres for the throttle to measure, I checked Raceroom and it is the same as the properties page, so I think it is an issue with AMS.
    On AMS, the deadzones are 0% and 100% and sensitivity is 100%. I did play around with these settings but it made no difference.
    I had a similar issue with the brake pedal, but I was able to tune this out with the in wheel brake force setting.

    I am very new to all this, so I am wondering if there is something obvious I am missing?

    Thanks for any help. :)

    have you tried to removed your controller settings and add them again?

    first time i added my pedals i had an deadzone that wasn't possible to remove using calibration.

    I'll give it a go. Do I delete the .ini file in My Documents or can I do it in game?

    Got it sorted. I feel a bit stupid, because it is so much better now. How I kept driving the way it was is beyond me. The brake is much better now too.
    Thanks again Jens. :thumbsup:
