We’ve had the chance to spend some quality time with Gran Turismo 7 now and we absolutely love it! It is a fantastic racing sim and has been well worth the wait. But to get the most out of GT7, you should look to fine-tune your force feedback settings for your racing wheel.

Below I will show you our recommended force feedback settings for the Gran Turismo DD Pro and Podium F1 racing wheels. I’ll also include Fanatec’s recommended settings for the CSL Elite wheel base +. Use the quick links below to jump to the racing wheel you’re interested in.

For each racing wheel, I’ve included our settings for the Fanatec tuning menu which you can change on your wheel directly. And below that, I’ve included the Gran Turismo 7 in-game wheel settings.

Gran Turismo DD Pro

Below are our recommended force feedback settings for the Gran Turismo DD Pro racing wheel. These settings have used Fanatec’s recommended settings as a baseline, with slight adjustments from our own testing.

In the settings below we have adjusted a few areas. We have increased the NDP (Natural Damper) to give the wheel more damping. We’ve also reduced the INT (Interpolation) to 1 to be closer to feeling the raw force feedback without any smoothing. And we’ve also reduced the FEI (Force effect intensity) ever so slightly to reduce some unwanted force feedback spiking.

Podium Racing Wheel F1

Much like the above settings, the recommended force feedback settings below are based on Fanatec’s own recommendation but tweaked by us.

We have made some more drastic changes to Fanatec’s recommendations for the Podium F1 wheel for Gran Turismo 7. These result in slightly stronger force feedback with some improvements to reduce any force feedback spikes.

We’ve bumped the FF which is the overall force feedback strength to 65. This will make the Podium F1 feel much stronger. We’ve increased the NDP (Natural Damper) to give the wheel a little more damping, and adjusted the NFR and NIN to affect how the wheel feels.

CSL Elite Wheel Base +

The settings below are the recommended settings from Fanatec, which can be found here. We haven’t tested these as we don’t have a CSL Elite wheel base. However, the Fanatec recommendations for both the GT DD Pro and Podium F1 felt pretty good. So we imagine these force feedback settings below should be a solid foundation.
