Driving View: Varies depending on Game. Usually Race 07 is Hood, GTL & rF is cockpit
Mirrors: On, usually Virtual
Driving aids: All off
ForceFeedback: On, low, usually about 80%
Clutch: Usually auto but occasionally manual in GTL
Seat position: depends on car and view.
Visible steering wheel: On for GTL, off for Race 07 (have to reduce graphic load for race 07)
Gears:Usually paddle for Race 07, sometimes sequential for GTL

Many of my options for Race 07 are because I have to heavily reduce the graphic load in Race 07, my PC can't cope with full options. I even run Race 07 in 16 bit mode to keep FPS up.

Thanks all, interesting to read and compare (in a sad muppet geeky kinda way :lol:)

The manual clutch in mini intrigues me a bit ... is there a simple explanation?

And ... I wanna know why Attila hasn't posted up his settings here yet, reckon he is scared that we will find out he uses the driving aids !!?? :D
