WRC 9 Wheel Settings

 

WRC 9 Wheel Settings

If you’ve read our review, you’ll know that the handling in the new game isn’t quite as easy to get to grips with on the defaults and the WRC 9 wheel settings need some tweaking.  Who are we kidding?  It’s a lesson in patience as you try and work out what to set the sliders to and what impact each has.  To help you get somewhere near a drive-able car we’re sharing what we used for the Logitech G29 that gave us some degree of confidence for hurtling down tight, twisty tracks.  We did calibrate the wheel and pedals first, so make sure you do that before making these adjustments.

First up for the WRC 9 wheel settings was the throttle, brakes and steering.  No issues with the first two, leave the accelerator and brakes on the defaults unless you’re desperate to change the saturation.  The steering was where we had the biggest issues in the game though.  Without adjustment it seems to be both too sluggish yet prone to flipping the tail out… not a good combo to keep things under control.  Both the left and right are effectively the same, add some sensitivity and a bit of deadzone, but with the invert option being there for the left due to the way the settings work, we’ve put both setups below.

When it comes to the force and effects, the defaults are way too weak, but that doesn’t mean you’ll need to ramp the WRC 9 wheel settings right up to the max.  You can tweak away with the balance between the different forces that will define the way the wheel will pull, and then almost damp them down with the overall force setting.  It’s a little the same with the overall vibration setting too.  Setup how you want the balance of effects through your wheel first, then if it’s too much use the overall vibration to calm it down (or increase it if it’s not enough for you).  We found in particular that the tyre slip could really override all the other effects so reduced that quite a bit… it’s also a bit of an unpleasant jarring rattle too, so it needed dropping down a few notches.  As this is for the G29, the throttle and brake pedal options are greyed out as that’s only for Fanatec wheels.

Hopefully the above will give a decent baseline to start tuning for your own preference, and if you find something that works considerably better, feel free to drop it in the comments for others.

WRC9 releases on the 3rd September for PC, Xbox One and PS4 for around £45.

    I found some cars don’t like steering sensitivity and I had to dial it back to -1. I found 0 worked good for most times, but then I’m using a 0 deadzone.
    Will try your settings

    Do these settings also apply to a Thrustmaster TX wheelbase?
    I only find settings for a Thrustmaster TMX.

      They’re only for the Logitech G29, though worth trying for the TX to see if they help.

    Would this work fit a g27?

      I don’t see why not given the same base hardware on the wheels.

    I’m using this setup with Thrustmaster T300 on PS4. It works great.
