Fanatec Launch New Esports Podium Steering Wheel Bundle
Fanatec has been partnered with the GT World Challenge (formerly known as the Blancpain GT Series) for a …
With Assetto Corsa Competizione well in to its life cycle, and the Xbox & PS4 releases imminent. We thought we would share the best Fanatec force feedback settings for ACC.
The force feedback settings below are listed by wheel base, with all Fanatec wheels included. To ensure you are getting the correct force feedback, you should ensure you update the settings in both your wheel’s tuning settings and the in game settings.
All of the settings below are great for a baseline setup. You can then go on to tweak them to suit your own driving style. These have been tested and designed with the latest version of Assetto Corsa Competizione at time of writing, version 1.4.
Before we show you the recommended settings for each wheel base, let’s have a quick look at what each ACC force feedback setting actually does. It is good to know what each setting in game does. This way you will know what to tweak to make your settings fit your driving style perfectly.
This setting is possibly the easiest to understand. It essentially affects the overall steering lock of your wheel. 1080 degrees means your wheel will turn 1080 degrees from full lock left, to full lock right. 360 degrees means you can turn your wheel 180 degrees either way. Simples.
Gain is essentially your force feedback strength setting. The higher this is set, the stronger the forces will be sent through your wheel. Be careful not to turn this up too high however. As too much gain can cause force feedback clipping. This is when all of the feedback is so strong, that some extreme forces are too strong to be detailed through your wheel.
If your wheel is experiencing FFB clipping, you wont feel the difference between a small bump, and a huge impact. All strong forces will essentially be using 100% FFB, meaning they all feel the same.
This is an adjustment that accounts for wheels with a force feedback deadzone in the center. This only really applies to low powered wheels such as the Logitech G29 and some Thrustmasters. We wont be adjusting this settings for any of our Fanatec wheel base FFB settings. Leave this at 0.
This is a more advanced take on what other games call wheel damping. It essentially makes the wheel feel heavier depending on the angle of your front wheels. The faster you go, the strong this effect gets, making it harder to turn your wheel under some load.
This is an artifical force feedback effect, designed to simulate forces that normally you would feel through the car and seat. These can include bumps and shakes etc. They can feel unatural coming through the wheel, and in some cases can mask actual force feedback effects. Again, we wont touch this setting and will leave it at zero for all wheel bases.
Now we’ve covered what each in game force feedback setting does in Assetto Corsa Competizione, lets look at each wheel’s recommended settings. As I mentioned at the start, these have been designed to give you a great baseline FFB setup which you can race with.
From there, you can adjust each setting as much as you like to tailor them to your own driving style.
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.

To make the Formula V2 multi position switches work you need to ensure the wheel base is in V2.5 compatibility mode, and the McLaren GT3 preset is selected.
These force feedback settings were designed to work on PC, Xbox and PS4 versions of Assetto Corsa Competizione.
