    Hi,

    what steering ratio do you use when driving the touring or GT cars? At the moment I'm using a 1:15 (900° / 30 Steering Lock).

    Thanks for your answers! Seems like I'm using a pretty low ratio.

    Wheel rotation is the how much the steering wheel turns from full left to full right. I use 740 degrees.

    Steering lock is the angle of the front wheels at full steering input. I use 25-27 degrees.

    More steering lock allows you to catch more slides because the front wheels can turn more. Wheel rotation divided by steering lock is the steering ratio. A low steering ratio gives stronger response (often termed "fast/quick steering rack").

    360/15 gives the same response as 720/30 because the ratio is the same, but 720/30 allows you to catch wider slides.

    Lotus Elise : 990/31.3 15.8:1
    Dallara F302: 13:1 -12.6:1

    Older cars use larger ratios due to lack of power steering
    Ferrari 250 GT: 20:1

    540@ 15:1 which equates to 540/2/15= 18 in game. Its a good little sum and it works well Rotation of wheel divided by 2 divided by the ratio you require, equals lock in game.

    I use 270/20 for the Touring cars and Minis and 360/30 for pretty much everything else.

    I now use 540/22-25 for F1, and 540/25-27 for pretty much everything else.

    I need to start testing above 220 lol.

    I mostly set mine at 220/26. I seem to handle the car more efficiently with the utmost minimum steering input.
