  • FEI = 100
  • FOR = 100
  • SPR = 100
  • DPR = 100
  • BLI = Based on preference (Default)
  • SHO = 100
  • BRF = Based on preference (Default)

How do you change Project Cars 3 Fanatec wheel settings?

In order to change Project cars 3 wheel settings, head over to “Options” and then to “Wheel & Force Feedback”.

You’ll now be ready to set a bunch of different settings as recommended below.

What are the best Fanatec wheel settings for Project Cars 3?

Our recommended graphics settings to get the most realistic wheel and FFB in Project Cars 3 are:

  • Pedal Type = N/A
  • Automatic clutch = On
  • Strength = 45
  • Tone = 70
  • Vibration = 50
  • Menu spring strength = 30
  • RPM / Gear Display = Yes
  • Steering Deadzone = 0
  • Steering sensitivity = 40
  • Throttle deadzone = 0
  • Throttle sensitivity = 40
  • Brake Deadzone = 0
  • Brake sensitivity = 35
  • Clutch Deadzone = 0
  • Clutch Sensitivity = 35

As you can see we’ll want to se all the deadzones to zero as they’re usually the main cause for a lack of precision when driving with a Fanatec wheel.

Furthermore, we recommend setting the steering and throttle sensitivity to 40 since it’s a good tradeoff between being too twitchy and not responsive enough.

For the brake, we recommend setting it to 35 as it allows for a more linear braking behavior.

And finally, we recommend setting the clutch sensitivity to 35 in order to avoid accidentally engaging it too early or too late.


So here were our recommended settings to get the most realistic Fanatec wheel and FFB in Project Cars 3.

Keep in mind that these are just general settings and that you might need to tweak them a bit according to your own driving style and preferences.

But overall, these should serve as a good starting point for you to get the most out of your Fanatec wheel in Project Cars 3.

Good luck and we’ll see you on track! 🙂
