F1 2021 Livery Update – Alpine F1 Team Interim Livery Revealed
We finally have a first look at how a 2021 Formula 1 could look. Albeit with a few …
Assetto Corsa Competizione has arrived on Xbox and PS4. This means that one of the best racing simulators available is now more accessible than ever!
It also brings with it a whole host of sim racers in search of the perfect force feedback settings for their racing wheel. If you fail to setup your racing wheel force feedback correctly you could very well be hampering your driving and lap times.
So below, we have listed out the best force feedback settings for ACC on Xbox and PS4. We have included recommended settings for all racing wheels, including; Fanatec, Thrustmaster and Logitech racing wheels.
Before we look at the recommended ACC force feedback settings, we will run through all of the in-game wheel settings. And we will show you how each setting affects how your wheel feels.
Are you having issues getting your racing wheel connected to ACC on Xbox or PS4? It is a common issue, and many are struggling getting throttle and brake inputs recognized in game.
Below is a quick run through of each wheel setting within Assetto Corsa Competizione. And how each setting affects the force feedback that you will feel.
The steering lock does exactly what it says on the tin. It will change how far your steering wheel will rotate before reaching its complete lock.
The gain setting in Assetto Corsa Competizione will change the overall strength of your force feedback. The higher this setting is, the stronger the force feedback will be. This is great for making quick adjustments up and down the strength output range.
Just be careful not to set this too high, as it can cause force feedback clipping with some wheels.
The min force setting in Assetto Corsa is a setting that has been introduced for weaker racing wheels such as the Logitech G29. This setting will account for racing wheels that have a deadzone at the center of the wheel.
The dynamic damping setting will change the weight of your racing wheel. This is directly linked to the speed of your car. As you start to accelerate to faster speeds, the damping will increase.
The road effects setting will send some artificial force feedback through your racing wheel. It is designed to mimic certain forces that would come through the cars chassis and seat in a real car.
Assetto Corsa Competizione force feedback does feel generally good out of the box on Xbox and PS4. The developers over at Kunos have had plenty of time to refine the force feedback in ACC, due to the amount of time it has been out on PC.
This refinement has carried over well to the Xbox One and PS4 force feedback. However, there are a few refinements you can make to make the force feedback in ACC on Xbox & PS4 feel even more realistic.
This is the refinement that we are going to show you in our recommended FFB settings below. The settings below will tailor the force feedback to be a little more responsive on your specific racing wheel.
In our recommended settings below you will see that we have included two sets of settings for Fanatec and Thrustmaster racing wheels. This is because you can adjust these wheels independently to the in-game settings.
By adjusting the force feedback settings in both Fanatec and Thrustmaster’s own tuning menus, you will be able to further dial in the overall FFB realism.
For both of the Fanatec Podium series wheel bases you have to adjust some of the settings using the torque key which is provided with the wheel base.

Thrustmaster do a great job of creating a smooth racing wheel for a reasonable price. This makes it a popular choice to race in Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Kunos have come forward with some recommendations when it comes to avoiding clipping with a Thrustmaster wheel. And these recommendations have been implemented in the custom settings below.
If you prefer stronger force feedback, you can increase the overall strength to around 75% in the Thrustmaster settings. We prefer the lower 65% for a smoother overall experience.
The Thrustmaster T150 and TMX are great wheels for Assetto Corsa Competizione. They both sit on the more budget friendly side of sim racing, but both still deliver really smooth force feedback without issue.
You should look to run similar settings to the T300 above, but with a little more overall strength. You should also look to include a little more road effects and a touch of min force in-game. Both of these help combat the slightly under-powered motor in the T150.
Unlike all of the other wheels above, Logitech don’t have their own independent force feedback settings. Instead, the only tuning options we have are those in ACC itself. And with the Xbox One and PS4 versions of ACC, you can’t import a wheel LUT profile either.
The settings below are designed to tweak the wheel force feedback just a little, to tailor the G29 and G920 on consoles. The Logitech racing wheels in particular do feel a little light in comparison to some other wheels.
Once you have nailed your force feedback settings, and you have got a few laps under your belt. You will want to be moving on to bigger and better things. There is no better place to start than by mastering how to setup your car for different tracks and weather.
This complete beginners setup guide will run you through all aspects of car setups in ACC. It will explain what every part of your setup does, and how it affects your car.
It will also go on to give you recommendations for how to set up your car for different outcomes.
