EA Sports WRC is a cracking rally game and a great evolution of the older Dirt Rally series. However, setting up a racing wheel to feel just right in this rally sim can be pretty tricky. Unlike racing on an asphalt track, EA Sports WRC throws a lot of different surfaces at you, all of which feel differently through a racing wheel.

I have spent a good few months with EA Sports WRC using a MOZA Racing wheel, and feel that I’ve nailed a pretty good set of wheel settings for the best overall force feedback. In this guide, I’ll run through my recommended MOZA wheel settings for EA Sports WRC. I am using a MOZA Racing R12, however, these settings translate well to other MOZA wheels including the R9 and more powerful R16 and R21.

How to configure your MOZA Racing wheel

Setting up any racing wheel in EA Sports WRC isn’t too tricky. Many racing wheels from popular brands such as Logitech and Fanatec are recognised right away. However, some newer brands including MOZA and Asetek can run into some trouble.

This is because, racing wheels from these brands aren’t directly supported in game, meaning a little bit of setup is required to get them working correctly. One of the key issues surrounding MOZA Racing wheels in EA Sports WRC is the lack of force feedback. This happens on the PC version of the game, and is easily fixed.

The first thing you should do when setting up your MOZA Racing wheel for EA Sports WRC is to ensure your wheel and pedals are correctly connected to your PC. Then ensure you have MOZA’s Pit House software downloaded and installed.

MOZA R9 & R12 wheel settings in Pit House

While changing the in-game settings goes half the way to making the driving in EA Sports WRC feel better. You can and should also change and update the settings for your MOZA wheel directly in Pit House.

Within the Pit House software you have a lot of options to tweak your wheel. These include adjusting the overall strength to the steering lock of your wheel and many advanced options.

Below are the recommended settings that I use in Pit House for both the MOZA R9 and R12 wheels. For the R16 and R21, you can adjust some of the settings down including the game force feedback intensity. This will prevent the wheel from feeling incredibly powerful.

I’ll start by looking at the basic settings in Pit House. If you don’t want to get too technical, you can adjust these and then start racing. These set various elements such as the overall force feedback strength from your wheel and the steering lock.

Basic SettingsValue
Maximum Steering Angle1080
Road Sensitivity10
Game Force Feedback Intensity100
Maximum Wheel Speed80
Wheel Spring Strength0
Wheel Damper20

Below are the advanced settings inside Pit House. These go a bit further beyond the basic settings above. Here you can change elements such as torque limits, friction and damping. You can adjust how your steering wheel reacts to the surface and how heavy it feels during racing with these settings.

Advanced SettingsValue
Maximum Output Torque Limit100
Hands-Off ProtectionOff
Steering Wheel InertiaN/A

Below are the advanced force feedback effect equalizer settings. These tweak the strength of forces at different frequencies. This is a great way to really tailor the details of the force feedback.
