I use as settings (and I recommend you to use them too):

Effect: 10%
Damping: 85%
Options: Use side forces (this is the key to have a smooth and realistic experience, otherwise if you use "steering wheel input" you will feel like on a boat :D )

I feel like I have TrackIR with this :)

Late to the party, i know..(11 years!).. but this quiet unassuming mod is a welcome addition to the cockpit, and a necessary assist in getting round those pesky corners and hitting the apexes spot on. This will do more for reducing lap times than any amount of set-up tweaks to gain that extra tenth.

What a fantastic utility! Why haven't I even heard of it before? Have you guys been keeping it secret?

Gotta say, I really like this.

An underrated utility. I think it only works on gpl.exe now.
Hopefully we can make it work on the others soon :)

Maybe some "Genius" can convert this great tool to a .XML file to make it work insite GEM+ ?

I have a TrackIR but dont use it anymore.
This tool is easy and ads more fun!

thanks.

For me it only works on some of the mods.

As far as I know, nothing happens when starting via GEM+. I get this message when closing the game.

I use it for years and it works with every mod. I added it in the GEM+ starting programs. In case you have separate mod installs, you have to do it for each
