    Wheel coming tomorrow!!

    Feel Like a kid on Xmass Eve!
    A post about a month ago linked to a site selling the TX for a good price. Month later I finally get Email that is shipping!! Next day Delivery, just in time for the weekend!

    Now I just have to figure out how to use /set up/ adjust the thing, without breaking it. I am sure the info is in these forums just have to find the right/ up to date posts.

    Once I have it set to my liking, will I have to then adjust in-game for each car on the FFB tuning page?

    I'm coming tomorrow too "lol

    Serious... wish you lot of fun with it and hope you find all the informations you'll need. Yes you can adjust for each car the ffb. There are guides here on the side and it improve the feeling of the cars a lot when you do that.

    Congrats - hope you love it as much as I have come to love mine. Planning on getting/building a stand for it?

    My advice for setting it up is simple:

    1. assuming you are updated to 2.0, calibrate the wheels and pedals as directed.
    2. In FFB calibration, just turn Tire Forces down to ~50-60. I use 58.
    3. Leave everything else alone. Take just about any car out in free practice and get used to it over a few laps. See if FFB is making sense to you and communicating the right sense of control over the car (i.e. can you feel when you apply too much power and the back end starts to step out? can you feel the limit of your grip? can you quickly and intuitively catch it in a drift?)

    This is where i stopped. no individual tweaking per car, no jack spade setup changes... maybe there's more i could get out of it, but i am very happy with the changes post-2.0.

    My advice for setting it up is simple:
    Stand is still a ? mark, When I first placed order, I had extra cash I could have got a stand, bad month now has cash a bit tight. Will try to find something I already have to make it work.

    Thanks for the set up advice, K.I.S.S. is me all day!

    Congrats, I'm getting a TX Racing Wheel next week can't wait, I'm really looking forward to it. From the videos I've watched there's no comparison between a Wheel and controller. I've built my own custom made stand it has a real Racing seat and everything, it's going to be freakn awesome!

    My advice would be a decent stand/frame/whatever you want to call it.
    When I got mine I just clamped it to a desk and pulled an arm chair up to it. It was horrible. I was afraid I'd spent all that money on something I really wasn't enjoying (might of also been something to do with the game I was playing at the time).
    With ProjectCars coming out I decided to invest in a decent frame with a racing bucket seat. And oh my, what a difference.

    Get a good frame or make something solid to keep the wheel still, a good bucket seat for comfort, or invest in a simulator setup.

    Make sure your wheel has the latest firmware.

    Calibrate wheel in game, make sure deadzone is at zero. I've found all other standard default settings to be fine so far in patch 2.0

    HAVE FUN

    As above a firm base to mount it on is a must as is having the latest firmware

    Enjoy
