  1. Thought I would share my settings. Please note that I use a brake mod (no load-cell) on my T3PA pedals and I have the 599XX Evo 30 wheel rim. The settings can all be adjusted +-5 and still be good (ffb maybe even +-10). Though I find the chosen values the best Steering Deadzone: 0 Steering Linearity: 35 Steering Saturation: 20 Throttle Deadzone: 5 Throttle Linearity: 100 Throttle Saturation: 00 Brake Deadzone: 0 Brake Linearity: 0 Brake Saturation: 15 FFB Strength: 95 On Track Effects: 5 Rumblestrip Effects: 30 Off Track Effects: 20 Wheel Damper: 0 Understeer Enhance: On Maximum Wheel Rotation: 360 Braking Assist: Off Anti-Lock Brakes: On Traction Control: Medium If I turn traction control off I would probably adjust throttle linearity down to the 0-35 range and maybe adjust throttle deadzone in the same range. Turning anti-lock brakes off doesn't affect the settings much. Hopefully somebody will find this info helpful at least as a starting point.

    My Thrustmaster TX/T300 and T3PA Settings

    Well if we are playing that game I was referring to all the forums at Codemasters (as can be seen in the url actually), not just the f1 forum. Semantics I guess. I thought I would include both plural forms to avoid people nitpicking, but I guess that failed unexpectedly. 😛 Not saying that I don't make mistakes, English is not my native language after all. I actually appreciate the feedback.
  3. This is another topic I had a very hard time finding any information on. A list of what preset to choose on the different tracks. No fiddling around with custom setups. The list is a compilation of information I manage to gather from different sources and my own testing. I have not yet thoroughly tested all tracks so may post a future update when I've done so. Also not sure when wet but at least increase downforce one step, but perhaps even two on some tracks (if possible of course)? I have to get back on that as well. On some tracks I've found that two settings gives very similar lap times. In that case I opted for downforce as the main choice. Still trying track for more but not done testing (see comment on the track). Feel free to complement or correct my list!

    Car Setup Presets for each track on F1 2018

    I've finished my testing of presets for each track. Yes some Optional times are faster that the main ones. A simple answer to this in most of those cases is that I adjusted my wheel settings and it (plus practice) made me slightly quicker, and I have not the patience to run all tracks again. Also remember that you cannot go on lap time alone. If you are one or two tenths faster on average I doesn't matter if you also makes too many mistakes on average with that preset.

    My Thrustmaster TX/T300 and T3PA Settings

    Anyway... Since the main thing for me is that the steering ratio is correct, i.e. SL, I concluded with my (very limited) mathematical skills that SL 40 and SS 20 are basically the same as SL 20. And as mentioned earlier I have had a hard time finding good FFB settings and since I did some adjustments to the steering I had to re-test the FFB as well. These will probably be my last changes. I'm happy with the settings, and I'm have spent way way too much time on this already.

    My Thrustmaster TX/T300 and T3PA Settings

    Ok I realize my trustworthiness regarding this is starting to wear thin since I keep posting different settings. I can only say that I try the best I can and have put a lot of effort into trying out many different configuration in my pursuit to find something that just feel right and great and still allows me to drive safe and fast. Since I've done the work I might as well post the results. Easy enough to try it out and discard if not your cup of tea. Steering Linearity: 40+-2 [40] Steering Saturation: 20+-2 [20] Brake Saturation: 16+-4 [16] FFB Strength: 106+-4 [106] On Track Effects: 5+-2 [5] Wheel Damper: 0 [0] Understeer Enhance: On Maximum Wheel Rotation: 360 Braking Assist: Off Anti-Lock Brakes: On Traction Control: Medium All other settings default. If you want to test SL and SS yourself I recommend turning on the racing line (while testing) and try not to deviate from it during the laps you do. Tracks that are great for testing this at high speed are Mexico and China and at low Monaco and Baku, Melbourne is kind of both worlds as well as COTA and Canada. Silverstone and Spa are great for simply trying to take the first corner (silver) and raidillon (spa) flat out and live to tell the tale. China and Monaco and Spa are also all especially great at testing FFB on. Finally I'm afraid I have to conclude that throttle and brake settings are really hard to find anything that can be useful for other due to my set being modded. I can hardly find anything working for my own pedal set! But I posted what I wound up with in the end anyway.

    Car Setup Presets for each track on F1 2018

    I use the assists below: Braking Assist: Off Anti-Lock Brakes: On Traction Control: Medium Sorry I have no idea what changes between the presets. Never really looked into it since I haven't done any customized setups. By the way since I posted the list a would switch the following presets/tracks: Silverstone Circuit [Short] - Increased Top Speed [Main] and Balanced/Default [Optional] (set a faster time using increased top speed now) Monza - Maximum Top Speed [Main] and Increased Top Speed [Optional] (though I have set a faster time using increased top speed; I blame that I suck at this track) Also from what I read and hear my guess is that Hungaroring should have Maximum Downforce as [Main] but I have yet get a feel for it. Still prefer Increased Downforce.

    Since these forums/fora doesn't seem to overflow with activity I thought I would at least do my part and post. I made some final adjustments and really hope these are my final ones. I have no complaint what so ever. And since I sort of abandoned the no assists path I didn't need to compromise as much. Just as before the SL and SS settings goes in pairs, eg SL 40 and SS 5, SL 45 and SS 10, SL 50 and SS 15.

    Forgot to mention that the lap times are all set using standard fuel, normal ers and no drs. Just for reference.

    Car Setup Presets for each track on F1 2018

    Well count me done here. After testing all tracks I still don't know what to choose on half of them. 😛 So instead of trying to compile a list I will simply list all tracks and the two best presets, and I will leave it others to decide what to choose. On some tracks I could have done better times, such as Hockenheim, but on most it's close enough to what I would expect. Perhaps someone quicker and more consistent driver can provide a better list. I would certainly welcome one.

    My Thrustmaster TX/T300 and T3PA Settings

    I would like to add that though it might be tempting to go for SL 35 and SS 15 or SL 30 and SS 10 I recommend to actually try SL 40 and SS 20 for some time. When starting out testing the lighter settings feel better, more immediate, tighter, and is tempting to keep. But if you give it time so you can adjust, the higher settings is as quick, and gives more leeway when on the limit and after a while more relaxing. And that can be a welcome bonus when racing online. 😄

    My Thrustmaster TX/T300 and T3PA Settings

    I have continued to test settings for my wheel and pedals. This time I made sure to try on all tracks, and tested on both dry, intermediate and full wet tires. I also tested out with no assists. Apparently this is no go for me (specifically TC off). I suck at it! But I tried to find settings that I had to adjust as little as possible when changing assists between on and off, and ended up with just one value (braking linearity) I have to adjust when using ABS or not. If I were less lazy I could probably leave this settings at the assists off value, but alas. The settings are all a compromise of course. Bigger than before since they have to work in more conditions. I tried to find what I drive the safest with, but still fast enough. First the range that works fine, and then my actual current value in square brakets []. Better drivers could adjust to whatever settings, I suppose, but I'm not one of them. I am decent though, around top 10-30 percent on most time trials with default setting, for what it's worth. Still, around 2 seconds up to the fastest guys so take what I suggest with a pinch of salt. Oh I forgot I also run a throttle mod, 0,7 kg/mm spring. And the brake mod cone I use measures 50 Sure).

    T300 wheel settings?

    I missed this thread when I made my first post. Since I noticed that some discussed the connection between steering linearity and steering saturation I thought I would add my two cents. I had constant problems finding the correct setting for both that worked on different tracks. Some settings worked great on some but not on others. Then I found Canada [Gilles Villeneuve track]. The goal were to find setting that felt natural. I didn't want to adjust to the settings they should just work. First I set steering linearity between 10 and 30 (in increments of 5) and the adjusted steering until I could narrow down the best value (also in increments of 5). What I found a bit surprising were how well the values followed each other. SL 30 -> SS 20* SL 25 -> SS 15 SL 20 -> SS 10* SL 15 -> SS 5 SL 10 -> SS 0* * I found these the best (not much difference though). I have not tested these settings on all tracks yet but ran them on Canada (obviously) Baku, Monaco, Silverstone etc and so far all works great. My new problem is how to choose what pair of settings I should use. They all work so I have a hard time finding the best. 😛 Anyway I made some slight changes otherwise so why not post the settings once more? Not intending to spam them, honestly. Steering Deadzone: 0 Steering Linearity: 20+-10 Steering Saturation: 10+-10 Throttle Deadzone: 10+-5 Throttle Linearity: 95 (not sure if 80-100 makes much difference really) Throttle Saturation: 5 (to save my weak knee!) Brake Deadzone: 5 (to save me stupidly breaking slightly when trying to start the race...) Brake Linearity: 0 Brake Saturation: 25 (not that important since i have ABS on but higher means I can brake lighter) FFB Strength: 95+-10 On Track Effects: 5 Rumblestrip Effects: 30 Off Track Effects: 20 Wheel Damper: 0 Understeer Enhance: On Maximum Wheel Rotation: 360 Braking Assist: Off Anti-Lock Brakes: On Traction Control: Medium

    Time trial - Fastest Laps

    Today I ran time trial on Road of America in Wet. Around 1.50-1.51 times. Suddenly the game announced I had set a new fastest lap at 1.13 something! And after this I no longer had any time deltas or ghost to run against. I managed to set a low 1.49 lap (no penalties) but it didn't register in the global listing. Instead the time I manage to set at the beginning of the session remained. (For some reason my account to the forum disappeared when the new forum went live so my posts above just says Guest now. Had to create the account anew)
