Winning online races is getting harder and harder on iRacing and if you’re not using the best wheel and FFB settings, you’re at a disadvantage.
So of you’re serious about becoming a top iRacing driver, make sure to follow our guide below.
How do you set up the wheels in iRacing?
For you to set the wheel and FFB settings properly you’ll want tot head into the iRacing “options” menu from the main iRacing interface.
From there, you’ll be presented with a plethora of options to adjust.
Let’s have a look at the respective settings in the screenshots below.
Remember that some of the settings may be different depending on the wheel that you’re using, like the FFB Force Factor.
In this case, we’re reviewing the settings for a Fanatec DD2 wheel which normally also work very well not only for the CSL DD and CSL Elite models but also for some Thrustmaster and Logitech wheels too.
- Wheel Range = 900°
- Map Range = 900°
- Force factor = 0.00%
- Enable Force Feedback = checked
- Use Linear Mode = checked
- Reduce force when parked = checked
- Wheel Force = 15Nm
- Damping = 0%
- Min force = 0.0%
General wheel setting tips for iRacing
When it comes to the general wheel settings, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.
First of all, make sure that the “enable force feedback” option is checked. This will ensure that you’re getting all the important information from the tyre to the steering wheel.
Secondly, we recommend that you use the “linear mode” for force feedback. This will make sure that the force feedback is clean and not jerky.
Last but not least, make sure to reduce the force feedback when you’re parked. This will save your wheel from wearing out over time.
When it comes to the FFB (force feedback) settings, we recommend that you set the force feedback to about 13 to 15Nm.
This will give you a good amount of feedback without being too overwhelming.
As for the damping, we recommend that you set it to about 0%. This will give you the most realistic driving experience.
What should my wheel range be on iRacing?
Your wheel range should be about 900°. That’s because most real-life racing cars have a wheel that turns about 900°.
So if you want the most realistic experience, you should set your wheel range to around that range.
What is the map range in iRacing?
The map range is basically the amount of steering input that’s required to turn the wheel from one lock to the other.
Again, since most real-life cars have a wheel that turns about 900°, you should set your map range to around that value.
Sp here were our recommended wheel and FFB settings for iRacing. If you follow our guide, you should have a significant advantage over the competition.
Remember to experiment with the settings a bit to find what works best for you.
Good luck and happy sim racing!
