Looking for the best and most realistic controller settings for Assetto Corsa guaranteed to make you fast?

As you may have guessed, having the proper controller settings can mean the difference between a win and a DNF since you’ll want to have the best feeling while driving the car.

In fact countless sim racers consistently make the mistake of running hypersensitive and inaccurate controller settings that then end up damaging their whole Assetto Corsa experience, wrongly blaming the game.

Here’s the step-by-step checklist you’ll need to follow in order to set up your controller to perfection.

Can you be fast with a controller on Assetto Corsa?

Yes, you can, but it will be nearly impossible to be quicker than drivers using racing wheels.

A good controller can help you to reach a good level but won’t actually make you unbeatable on the track.

For beginners though, it can be a really good starting point before having to purchase an expensive wheelbase and pedals set.

As you can see we’ve suggested running near maximum rumble strip effects as well as speed sensitivity while at the same time keeping a low steering speed value.

That’s because we want to avoid the car being overly reactive on the steering input which would cause us to oversteer and spin out.

The deadzone should also be kept at 0 so that you can have the most precise steering input possible.

What’s the best driving technique to be fast on a controller with Assetto Corsa?

The best thing you can do to improve your lap times is to brake as late and hard as possible, sacrificing the speed in the middle of the corner and then using all the traction from the car on exit.

Your main goal would be to maximize your entry and exit speed which will yield the best lap times while using a controller on AC.

What controller cn I use for Asseto Corsa?

You can use a PS4 controller but the one that tends to work best is the Xbox gamepad.

That’s because it’s got great FFB and precise steering inputs at the same time.


So here were our recommended controller settings for Assetto Corsa.

We hope you found this guide helpful and that it will help you to improve your driving and setup your controller correctly.

Good luck and happy sim racing! 🙂
