Thrustmaster T248 Assetto Corsa Settings

The Thrustmaster T248 is one of the most popular Thrustmaster racing wheels currently. It was the first modern Thrustmaster racing wheel since the older T300 RS generation of wheels that were released in the mid 2010’s.

The T248 featured a completely updated design, with much heavier use of angled lines, and included a screen on the steering wheel capable of live telemetry read outs.

The Thrustmaster T248 works incredibly well with the original Assetto Corsa, and it is widely supported across many other games, and all consoles.

How to set up a Thrustmaster wheel in Assetto Corsa

Below is a quick overview of how to correctly set up a Thrustmaster racing wheel in Assetto Corsa on both PC and console.

  1. Connect your Thrustmaster wheel to your PC, Xbox or PS5

    Step 1 is to connect your Thrustmaster wheel to your PC or console. Do this by connecting the USB cable from the rear of the wheel base to your PC, Xbox or PS5.

  2. Download Thrustmaster Control Panel (PC only)

    This step only really applies if you’re racing on a PC. If you are on PC, head over to Thrustmaster’s support website and download the correct firmware for your racing wheel. You will see a list of racing wheels on the support page. Select your wheel and then download the firmware. This will install the Control Panel for you, where you can check for updates and adjust wheel settings.

  3. Adjust your wheel settings

    This step applies if you are racing on PC, or if you have a racing wheel with an in-built screen such as the T248. Use either the Thrustmaster control panel or your wheel’s menu to apply the settings listed above for your specific wheel.

  4. Adjust the Assetto Corsa settings

    The next step is to start up Assetto Corsa, head over to the options and apply the recommended settings above for your specific wheel.

  5. Configure your button mapping

    Finally, you can change your button mapping to ensure your wheel buttons are correctly set to your own preference.


Assetto Corsa wheel settings explained

In the section below, I will provide a brief explanation of each wheel setting in Assetto Corsa.

Degrees

Degrees of rotation change how much your wheel will turn before reaching its full lock. This should be set to 900° or 1080°.

Gamma

Gamma changes your linearity in Assetto Corsa. Leaving this set to 1.00 will give you true 1:1 steering. This makes your physical steering wheel turn at the same speed as the in-game steering wheel.

Filter

Filter applies smoothing to the force feedback, which is useful for powerful direct drive wheel bases.

Speed Sensitivity

The sensitivity will adjust how sensitive your steering wheel is at higher speeds.

Gain

Gain is your overall force feedback strength setting in Assetto Corsa.

Minimum Force

Minimum force will apply a base level of minimum force which can boost less powerful racing wheels.

Kerb Effect / Road Effect

These settings change how much force is created as you drive over kerbs and the track. Higher settings will create stronger force feedback.

Slip Effect

Slip effect will create force feedback as your wheels start to slide over the track.

ABS Effect

ABS effect will kick in and simulate force feedback as your wheels start to lock and ABS is applied.
