I've tinkered about and this is the best setup I've used. Handling in corners is a lot better than the preset 2 or default.

Custom 3

Controller Input Mode - 2 (Change first)
Steering Deadzone - 10
Steering Sensitivity - 10
Throttle Deadzone - 10
Throttle Sensitivity - 40
Brake Deadzone - 10
Brake Sensitivity - 30
Clutch Deadzone - 10
Clutch Sensitivity - 45
Speed Sensitivity - 65
Controller Filtering Sensitivity - 35
Force Feedback - 100
RPM/Gear Display Yes
Controller Input Mode - 2
Advanced - On
Apply Soft Steering - On
Apply Visual Filtering - Off
Apply Opposite Lock Help - Off

what makes this setup better then the standard?

Speed Sensitivity - 65 would be way too much for me, you'd get loads of understeer in fast sweepers.

just tried it out and it seems pretty stable.

For me I had an issue with the car not going round corners properly or smooth. With this setup I've noticed it does help. I've given this to 5 other people and they all say it's better than standard preset 2 :)

wait this works in online racing? not just in career? I didn't think you could make changes to steering setup for online games

Controller/wheel settings take effect in offline and online modes.

It's your overall settings for everything. It defo works because brands hatch both online and offline handles a lot better in the corners. Might have to adjust the braking as a couple say it doesn't stop as quick but they all agree it corners better.

as a basis this setup was great, i made a few changes, upping the brake sensitivity and the acceleration sensitivty, it was a good evening racing around!

What have you adjusted them too?? I'm gonna tinker again tonight lol

Speed sens dropped to 60 works better though!

I just upped them 2 clicks, cannot remember the exact number. Im pretty good with control on the R2 button so prefer a high sensitivity.

Why do you guys have a deadzone on throttle and brake?

I don't want to be rude but this just makes no sense to me, you want to be able to press the trigger a tiny bit and have nothing happen? Why? It seems logical to me that to give you the greatest control you want to be able to use the full curve available to the triggers.

Just a thought. Personally I found that my 'touch' improved quite a lot once I changed my settings to the following. Give it a go perhaps and see if it's better or worse for you:

Steering Deadzone: 10
Sterring Sensitivity: 0
Throttle Deadzone: 0
Throttle Sensitivity: 0
Brake Deadzone: 0
Brake Sensitivity: 0

Its all personal preference, it has nothing to do with logic.

That's a fair point but it does make perfect sense to have a deadzone on steering because many, like me, always hold the stick forward for greater control. On the triggers it genuinely makes no sense though.

If you think about it, it's actually making it harder to apply gentle throttle or brake because you're introducing the problem of not knowing where the deadzone ends. If you have no deadzone, there's no problem.

65 speed sens is bit too much for me,
I also use mode 2, and I put deadzone to 0 and speed sens to 50, works like a charm for me

I have a deadzone set to avoid accidentally touching one or the other too hard and applying them while im in the heat of a race.

Yea it just feels right with a deadzone on Brakes/Throttle. To me it provides great control when approaching a turn, l can dose it very well. It may be not the best setup, but thats what l have been using for many hours, and changing it now would only irritate me. :p

I joined in one of the races other night, night track with the BMW. I did poop lol

Does anybody actually know what the difference is between the 3 modes? Or could mod or Dev clear things up.
Because to be honest. I have no idea

SMOOTHEST CONTROLS PS4 - Change only these:
MODE 2 - SET FIRST
Steering Deadzone - 0
Steering Sensitivity - 0
Speed Sensitivity - 100
Controller Filtering Sensitivity - 80
Advanced - On
Visual Wheel Filtering - On
Opposite Lock Help - On

This is for smoothest possible driving, Make sure tires are warm and if desired slowly increase steering sensitivity 1 click at a time to make car more snappy.

Are you a stick tapper or glued thumb player? I'll try this latter.

You're an old school guy like me, i also play on the PS4 with the right analogue as a combined throttle/brake. :)

Thought it interesting looking at this thread that there are some posts saying what is the point of deadzone in controller settings.

Consider 2 different users, one with a well worn DS4 on with a brand new fresh out of the box, the new one has much more stickiness to its centre point than the other.

I know my old DS3 is much easier for small steering inputs that my new DS4 controller, so in my view the newer the controller the more deadzone required.

Bruno Alexandre

DS3 for me felt heavier and resisted more to the pull whenever i used the analogue, so there was less of a need for deadzone as it exists on the DS4.

Wow! Someone actually feels the same as me about the DS3 and DS4 :eek:

Bruno Alexandre

In the end it always depends on each one taste and their hands, but i always feel more in control when using a analogue stick which provides me some resistance when moving rather than one that doesn't.
