please help me guys and gals,

I just bought a G27 and im plugging it in for the first time today, my question is the following...

are the calibration tutorials that were posted before still relevant now after patch 3.0???? or do i just use the presets that are now included in the new patch? i don't want to have the Deadzone issue that i keep reading about.

I wanna get the most out of the wheel.

any thoughts?
