I have a Fanatec Clubsport v2.5 wheel and pedals that I recently purchased. Through browsing various forums I have managed to get decent feedback and feel for Assetto Corsa however I am struggling to get decent settings for GPL and there doesn't appear to be much advice that I can find, at least for my wheelset.

I am using the following settings in GEM+ which I found in a general post about FFB. I am using the FFBTest patch.

Force feedback latency 0.2
Force Feedback Damping 55
Force Feedback maximum force 350

In the Fanatec settings I have restricted the wheel to 540 degrees (SEN) rather than the standard 900 and in the car setup currently have the Steering ratio at 9:1

However, for GPL what should I be setting the following too in the Fanatec tuning menu. These are my current settings

SEN 540
FF 100
DRI -1
FEI 40
FOR 40
SPR 50
DPR 50
SHO 100

thanks in advance

In case you haven't seen it, ErikGPL has shared some settings on youtube:

Latency: 0
Damping: 0
Max FF: 320

Fanatec settings
SEN:  450
FF: 100
DRI:   -3
FEI:    90
FOR:  90
DPR:  20
BLI/ABS:  90
SHO:  100

Could be worth trying on a spare profile;  even if you then think your own settings work better for you!

I should do an update video, because my settings have changed after tweaking for them during nearly 1,5 year.

This is what I use nowadays:

Latency: 0
Damping: 0
Max FF: 225 (This will make the ffb a lot stronger: higher number is less strength.)

Steering ratio: 8:1 or lower depending on track.

FFB patch: FFB3Test1

SEN:  360 (I use a square F1 rim, for round wheels 450 or 540 would be more realistic.)
FF: 100
DRI:   -1 (will give oscalliation but makes steering feel quicker, I use -2 for heavier cars like can-am, thundercars, 1968 etc.)
FEI: 70 (make the effects smoother)
FOR:  120 (again much stronger ffb)
SPR:  OFF (always OFF)
DPR:  10
BLI/ABS:  85
SHO:  100
BRF: 80 (for load cell brake)

This all will make the force feedback very strong while also keeping the wheel feel lively.
It is quite an "oscallation-happy" setup but to get rid of that you can use lower drift settings or higher dampening.
