Hi,

I just got the game, I have a g27 wheel and need help with setup. In the slow sections of Lonato I can't get through the mid corner with out loosing the rear. It feels like the steering is way too aggressive as though the game response with more steering than I intend to input. Does anyone have any advice on what to change?

I've configured the wheel with 180 degrees and ackermann std and 4:1.

I've tried some of the setups on here but I've never had a kart experience where it wants to swap-ends so quickly. (I used to race KT-100 in Oz)

thanks
Dan

Reduce your castor angle to about 3. That's what I use as a starting point. Too much castor gives you too much mechanical jacking which makes the kart oversteer in the mid-corner. As you drive faster, you may need more castor to stop understeer in the mid-corner

I also maxed out the FOV and that helped a lot (with out adjusting any kart settings).

I've always run max FOV. I also used to run Clubman here in Oz but have moved to 125 Restricted now. Couldn't affrord to rebuild my engines all the time :(.

Did you try the castor change and did it work for you?

If you are still struggling, going into input options and reduce the linearity of the steering to 97-99. It is only a tiny change but makes a massive difference to drivability.
