In this guide, I’ll run through the best force feedback settings for all Simucube wheel bases in Assetto Corsa Competizione. I’ll show you our recommended wheel settings for the Sport, Pro and Ultimate wheel bases.

How to set up a Simucube wheel in Assetto Corsa Competizione

Simucube have been producing some of the very best direct drive wheel bases in sim racing for years. Their current lineup of the Simucube Sport, Pro and Ultimate wheel bases cover a wide range in performance.

At the lower end, you have the Simucube Sport which produces up to 17Nm of peak torque. In most scenarios this is more than enough power. However, the Pro wheel base produces up to 25Nm of peak torque, giving you access to even more performance.

And if you are looking to really maximise your sim racing setup, the Simucube Ultimate is capable of creating a whopping 32Nm of peak torque.

All of these Simucube wheel bases work flawlessly with Assetto Corsa Competizione, and their performance is enhanced when using our recommended settings below.

But first, I’ll run through how to connect a Simucube wheel base to Assetto Corsa Competizione.

  1. Mount your Simucube wheel base

    All variants of Simucube wheel base are incredibly strong. It is advisable to mount them via the built-in front mounting fitments to a sturdy sim rig.

  2. Install the SQR Hub and mount your steering wheel

    The next step is to choose a steering wheel and mount it via the SQR Hub. This quick release comes with all Simucube bases and allows you to mount a wide variety of steering wheels from brands such as Cube Controls.

  3. Connect your Simucube wheel base to your PC

    After your wheel base is correctly mounted, connect it to your PC. You’ll also need to connect it to the power supply. Some older Simucube bases require two PSUs while newer models only require a single power supply.

  4. Update your wheel base

    Once all hardware is mounted and connected, we can move on to the software. Download and install Simucube’s True Drive software. This allows you to update your wheel and adjust all settings. The firmware will automatically update the first time the software is run. Ensure your wheel base is switched on.

  5. Adjust your wheel settings in True Drive

    After the firmware update is complete, you can move on to adjusting your wheel settings inside True Drive. Do this using our recommended settings below.

  6. Adjust ACC force feedback settings

    Finally, we can start up ACC and adjust the force feedback settings in game. Use our recommendations below to complete the set up process.


Simucube Sport ACC force feedback settings

I’ll start by showing you our recommended settings for the Simucube Sport. This is the smallest and most accessible Simucube wheel base in terms of cost. It still produces a strong 17Nm of torque which will be more than enough for most.

How to change your racing wheel settings in Assetto Corsa Competizione

While the Simucube wheel settings can be changed in Simucube’s True Drive software, Assetto Corsa Competizione has its own set of wheel settings that can be changed. You can change these settings using the options menu on the home screen, by scrolling to the bottom right.

  • 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

Simucube True Drive settings explained

General

Overall Strength
The overall strength setting will affect your Simucube wheel bases overall strength output. At 100%, you will be allowing your wheel base to output the maximum amount of torque. As you change the overall strength setting, you will see the actual maximum torque setting below change.

Steering Range
This is your steering lock. Ensure this matches your in-game setting.

Bumpstop Feel
The bumpstop feel will affect how hard the force is that stops you from turning your wheel past the maximum steering lock.

Bumpstop Range
This should match your steering range.

Constantly Operating Filters

Simucube Force Reconstruction Filter
This filter will essentially affect how smooth the force feedback feels. The higher the filter, the more smoothing is being added. Generally, lower settings are better as they reduce latency.

Torque Bandwidth Limit
This bandwidth limit will affect the clipping of force feedback. Lower settings here will eliminate higher frequency force feedback resulting in smoother but less detailed feedback. Leaving this to unlimited is normally best.

Damping
Adding damping will simulate the mechanical aspects of your car’s suspension and tyres. Increasing this setting will add weight to your steering wheel.

Friction
Friction works in tandem with damping to simulate tyre friction. Increasing this will also increase the weight of your wheel in certain scenarios.

Inertia
Inertia will add weight to your steering wheel.

Static Force Reduction
This setting reduces the constant force required to keep the wheel turned through longer corners. It will reduce the constant force, while allowing fine details to shine through.

Slew Rate Limit
Leaving the slew rate limit off should be your default setting. It adjusts how fast the torque levels change and can limit the speed of torque change.

Ultra Low Latency Mode
This setting will reduce the latency between wheel base and PC, which can be helpful if you are applying filters to your force feedback.

DirectInput Effect Fine Tuning

The DirectInput tuning settings allow for fine-tuning of the overall settings which have been set above. These allow you to delve deeper in to really fine-tuning your force feedback.


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.
