    Currently in the process of testing some slider by doing some laps on 100 and some on 0 to get a good feel of what they do. Does anyone know what Clutch is supposed to do/impact (haven't tested that one yet).
    It's for when you use a wheel and pedals and are operating an actual clutch pedal.

    I can only suggest to set the controller to your liking and practice a lot

    Can anyone suggest how to make the analogue sticks less responsive?

    I use right stick up for throttle and down for gear down. When I let go of the throttle the action of the stick returing to the centre is enough for it to drop me down a gear, sometimes two! I've tried a few different settings but the lack of information on what each one does is making it a cumbersome job. I'm not even sure if it can be done. I've used this button set up since GT5 without issues and it's not a DS4 thing because it worked fine on the short time I tried driveclub.

    You can try to increase the Throttle deadzone.

    Hey, has anyone had any issues with the vibration on the DS4? Everytime I press break it starts to vibrate like mad and will continue to do so for about 30 seconds... is this normal? Any fixes?

    Yesterday evening driving with some new cars I couldn't get the right feel with my settings. Decided to completely revert back to the original out-of-the-box settings on input mode 3. And had a pretty good experience, didn't change anything all night.

    Bottom-line, I have no clue what to do with the different settings. Every car / class is so different, every time I think there is a need to adjust all the settings. Will try to roll with the standard input mode 3 for now and will make some slight adjustments still. I think the sweet spot for me will be somewhere between the standaard settings of input mode 2 and 3 actually.

    Hello everybody I have spent more time messing around with the controller settings than actually racing, how bad is it that there are no control options from the in game menu ??? Anyway that a different story

    Anyways I think I have a decent setup now for all those who like to use small movements on the stick and who have been struggling with spinning off like me. Please give it a try and let me know

    Steering deadzone - 5
    Steering sensitivy - 0
    Throttle deadzone - 5
    Throttle sensitivy - 0
    Brake deadzone - 5
    Brake sensitivy - 0
    Clutch deadzone - 5
    Clutch sensitivy - 0
    Speed sensitivy - 70
    Control filtering sensitivy - 40
    Force feedback - 90

    Controller Input Mode 1/2/3 - Doesnt matter as you have already changed all the settings above ^^^
    Advanced settings - on
    Soft Steering Dampening - On
    Visual Wheel Filtering - Off
    Opposite Lock Help - Off

    edit: Make sure your tires are nice and warm as cold tires makes for very unpredictability thats for sure

    This could be a known bug (although it's usually only present on PC and sometimes on Xbox One, could you try setting Force Feedback to 0 to see if it persists?

    The controller input modes differ in more ways then what you can adjust in the menu.
