    Some practice laps with my new T150 wheel

    I'm still learning so don't be too critical.
    Playing with the wheel feels a lot better than the controller. However... I think that the game is trying to be realistic a bit too hard and it comes out completely oposite at the times.
    I still love it

    Car on default setup as I'm not good at tweaking at all

    Any advices how I could improve will be appreciated.

    Adjust the brake sensitivity and/or reduce the brake pressure. GT3 cars lock the brakes really easily and you're doing it a lot.

    Also it's good to try sit close to the screen but I feel your legs are cramped. If you sit away from the pedals a little, it might give you better control of the throttle and brake.

    Get off that hud cam and get in the cockpit. I used to always use hud but after being inside for a few months I can't see me going back.

    I have a T150 myself. I really like the wheel. The pedals are another matter. I have the Break Deadzone set at 15 and Sensitivity at 25. It's okay but I'm still trying to find the right feel for it.

    Yeah, I love the wheel and the FFB. It makes this game a completely different experience. However the pedals, like you say, takes some time to get that right feel and I'm too still trying to find one

    The good news is the T3PA pedals and TH8A shifter are compatible withe the T150. I don't want a new wheel yet, but those might be great upgrade options at some point.

    I assure you we're trying just hard enough to be realistic.

    At 2.31 you cut the inner grass too much, pushing you wide on exit to the less grippy stuff and the response is exactly as I'd expect as you kept the throttle in...

    At 4.21 you floored it with two wheels on the grass. The response is as expected.

    At 5.23 you went in way too hot the the corner and ran wide, again, as expected.

    At 5.52 you gave no respect to the inner kerbs with steering lock on and overcorrected when the car responded as would be expected.

    Thanks for some constructive avdvices. Like I said, I'm still learning and getting used to the wheel and this will definitely help a lot.
