In this Assetto Corsa Competizione wheel settings guide, I’ll run through how to perfectly set up your MOZA racing wheel with ACC. I’ll show you a how-to guide on the setup process, and then show you our recommended best ACC force feedback settings for all MOZA wheels.

How to set up any MOZA racing wheel in Assetto Corsa Competizione

Assetto Corsa Competizione is one of the leading racing sims in 2023. It allows sim racers to race GT3, GT4 and GTC cars across a wide range of laser-scanned tracks.

To really feel every bump and change in the surface at each track, you should ensure that your racing wheel is correctly set up. Setting up any racing wheel can be a complicated process. But with MOZA racing wheels, the process is about as easier as it could be.

There are a lot of different wheels and force feedback settings that you can adjust with MOZA wheels. And I’ll show you our recommended settings later in this article. But first, I want to run through the process of connecting and setting up a MOZA wheel with Assetto Corsa Competizione.

  1. Connect your MOZA wheel to your PC

    Step 1 is to connect your MOZA wheel to your PC. You can connect it via the USB cable at the rear of the wheel base. Connect the USB to your PC, and the power to your wheel base and turn it on.

  2. Update your wheel base

    The next thing to do is download the free MOZA Pit House software. This will allow you to change the force feedback settings, and more importantly, ensure it is up to date. Download Pit House here, and then run the first-time calibration when you start the app.

  3. Adjust your wheel settings in Pit House

    Once you have installed Pit House, and run through the calibration and update process, you can start to tweak settings. Click on your wheel base, and then adjust the settings using our recommendations below.

  4. Adjust ACC force feedback settings

    The final step is to adjust your settings in Assetto Corsa Competizione. Ensuring you have the best settings for both your wheel base in Pit House, and in ACC is key to getting the best performance from your MOZA wheel.

Where to buyBuy from MOZA

These MOZA R21 ACC wheel settings are designed to give you a good mixture of overall force feedback strength combined with detailed feedback.

I have toned the settings down a little in terms of strength away from the maximum potential of the R21. This is to eliminate any potential force feedback clipping and to avoid excess fatigue from running the wheel base at its 21Nm limit at all times.

Basic settings
  • Maximum Limit / Steering Angle: 900 (Or set to match the on-screen wheel)
  • Synchronous: On
  • Road Sensitivity: 8

How to change your racing wheel settings in Assetto Corsa Competizione

All Assetto Corsa Competizione wheel settings can be changed from the settings. You can access this either on the home screen, by scrolling to the bottom right. Or while you are in a session by pausing and selecting settings.

  • Step 1 – In the main menu, scroll to the bottom right menu item called options
  • Step 2 – Navigate to the controls tab within the options menu
  • Step 3 – Adjust the force feedback settings in the main part of this settings screen
  • Step 4 – Adjust your control bindings on the right part of the screen

MOZA Pit House wheel settings explained

There are a fair few settings within the MOZA Pit House software to change. This allows you very detailed control over how your MOZA racing wheel behaves.

MOZA does provide some settings explanations for each setting. However, to simplify things, we have summarised how each setting in Pit House affects your force feedback.

Basic settings

MOZA Pit House Basic Settings Explained

Maximum Limit / Steering Angle:
This dictates the steering lock of your wheel. You should set this to match the car you are driving in Assetto Corsa Competizione.

Synchronous:
This will ensure the stopping point of your wheel matches the steering lock and should be turned on.

Road Sensitivity:
This affects the road feel in Assetto Corsa Competizione. The higher the setting the more detailed and noisy the track surface will feel.

Game Force Feedback Intensity:
This changes the maximum output of force feedback from the game. This should be left at 100% most of the time.

Maximum Wheel Speed:
This changes how fast the wheel can sping and how fast it will return to centre. Higher settings increase the wheel speed.

Wheel Spring Strength:
This adds an artificial return to centre effect for games that don’t have force feedback. It should be left at 0%.

Wheel Damper:
The higher this setting, the smoother your force feedback will feel and the heavier your wheel will be. Set this too high and your force feedback will lose detail and your wheel will feel sticky.


Advanced settings

MOZA Pit House Advanced Settings Explained

Professional Game Force Feedback Intensity:
This setting can be used to boost the overall force feedback strength coming from the game past 100%.

Force Feedback Reversal:
This will reverse the force feedback, and should be set to off most of the time.

Maximum Output Torque Limit:
This will limit the maximum torque value of your wheel. It should be left at 100%.

Hands-Off Protection:
This allows the wheel to detect when you let go of the wheel, and prevents it from spinning after you’ve let go. It is a good safety feature that should be enabled.

Steering Wheel Inertia:
This setting changes the speed detection of the hands-off protection. Higher values will require the wheel to be spinning faster before the hands-off protection kicks in.

Natural Inertia:
Much like the wheel damping setting. Higher values will allow your wheel to remain more stable, and lower values make it more lively.

Wheel Friction:
This adds a sensation of your wheels being in contact with the road. Much like damping, higher values increase stability and lower values increase responsiveness.

Speed-dependent Damping:
This value affects how strong the wheel damping effect is depending on how fast you are travelling.

Start Point of Speed-dependent Damping:
This will change the start point of when the speed-dependent damping will start to engage.


FFB Effect Equalizer

MOZA Pit House FFB Equalizer Explained

The FFB effect equalizer is designed to give detailed control over specific sensations and frequencies. You can individually adjust how your wheel behaves during certain scenarios.

For example, you can boost the force feedback to enhance the feeling of ABS vibration. Then you can lower it to reduce the impact of driving over kerbs or in gravel.

These finite adjustments work in conjunction with the basic and advanced settings to change your wheel’s behaviour.


Assetto Corsa Competizione force feedback settings explained

Below is an overview of all of the wheel settings within ACC.

Gain

The gain setting in ACC is an overall strength setting. Having this set to 100% will allow your wheel to use the maximum amount of torque on offer. Lowering this will reduce the overall strength and is only really recommended to avoid any force feedback clipping.

Minimum Force

The minimum force setting should normally be left at 0%. It is designed to enhance the overall minimum force of your wheel by a set multiple. For example, at 100%, it would be boosting the minimum force of your wheel by 100%.

Damper

The damper setting should also be left at 0% in most cases. This works in the same way as minimum force and will boost the overall dampening of your wheel.

Dynamic Damping

The dynamic damping setting adjusts the variation in the damping at different speeds. For example, when your car is stationary, your steering wheel will feel heavier to turn. Whilst at higher speeds, it will feel lighter.

Road Effects

The road effects again act as a boost to your base wheel settings. This option changes how the differences in road surfaces feel. Much like the minimum force and damper setting, we’d recommend leaving this at 0 and controlling it via the Pit House software instead.

Frequency

The frequency dictates the frequency that your wheel base updates at. At 400Hz it will update 400 times each second.

Steer Lock

This setting should match the steering lock that you set in Pit House.
