!

I'm stunned....I knew that having a decent wheel and pedal set could make a difference, but.....wow! In 10 quick test laps in F1'85, I found out that I can decrease my braking points by damn near a third and was within a tenth of a second of my fastest lap during testing on lap 9. biggrin

I will have to re-learn how to drive everything I imagine, as I'd set my cars up to work the best with that old MOMO Racing.

I'll try 270, Darren...thanks. I set it to 320 initially and that's still just a bit much for the '85 cars...I like for my wheel to mimick the on-screen one, so I'm going to lower it for that Profiler profile.

I'm just stunned...still. Time for the happy dancing banana, for sure.

It is a bit different than a 2-pedal set, for sure...and, old habits die hard.

Left the pits at Monza...clutched it a bit to get going and heat the rears up, ran through the gears as I exited the pits and headed into the first part of Variante del Rettifilo...geared down, pushed down on the brake and got NOTHING! Ran straight through the sand to the start of Curva Grande.

Seems clutching the engine at 250KPH won't slow you down a bit.... eek

Glad it's all worked out, Steve. FWIW, I also use rotation settings between 270 and 300.

Thanks, Chunx....I'm trying 300 initially. Seems to be a good feel for the F1 '85's so far.

Gonna be tweaking RealFeel for quite a while it looks like, there's really a big difference in the FFB compared to that old MOMO. The "mush" in the center takes some getting used to, but it's not too bad....just gotta figure out which RealFeel setting can tighten that up. I know there's a deadspot in the G25/27's because over motor overlap, but with RealFeel it's more pronounced it seems.

The pedals are by far the biggest improvement.....more control, little later braking and smoother throttle roll-on. Plus, when I do something stupid...which happens a lot...I can burn the tires off in burnouts using the clutch to feather the throttle... biggrin

I just got mine! I'm very psyched. But, I need some time to set it up.
