rFactor 2 (PC) - Fanatec Recommended Settings

edited July 8 in rFactor
General Notes:
- The settings below are considered to be reasonable baseline values for rFactor 2 (PC). They might not suit all tastes and driving styles, but they are a good starting point. Bear in mind that rFactor 2 uses a dynamic physics engine covering a broad range of cars and tracks, meaning that these settings might not be 'optimal' for every possible driving scenario.

- In order to apply the suggested settings correctly, it is important to assign both the Tuning Menu values AND the suggested In-Game settings together.

- For the Podium Series settings, it is assumed that the Torque Key is being used.

- rFactor 2 has the ability to provide a 'raw' force feedback signal that can generate significant mechanical noise on some wheel bases, which can be reduced through a combination of lower FEI values (Fanatec Tuning Menu) and higher FFB Smoothing values (rFactor 2 menu). This is highly dependent on the vehicle selected - the Skip Barber 2013, for example, communicates more surface detail with FFB Smoothing at max (32) than the BMW M6 GTE 2018 with FFB Smoothing at 0. While it is important to keeping smoothing to a minimum for the most 'detail', it is not unreasonable to add a significant amount of smoothing (values above 10) for some vehicles.

- 'Car Specific FFB Mult' is a value that should be adjusted in combination with the clipping tool. In doing so you can maximise the dynamic range of the FFB but lose some of the feeling of variety between car types.

- Please ensure you are using the latest firmware for all Fanatec devices.

  • dd1 didnt work, the ffb is reverse and no ingame option to change it.  steering works but ffb is reverse like in automobilista.

    Make sure you click on “Detect” on the wheel setup page in game, it should show up as the Podium Wheelbase.

    Witch values can I use for my Fanatec Motorsport CSR Wheel Valuepack XL

    The drivers found on product page are old drivers and I am using now Driver version 311Beta. At the update tab of my Fanatec Wheel Properties I found the versions : the driver version and Firmware version are  311 BETA and 756. Is this ok because there is no recent driver on original productpage

  • Guys I've noticed that Steering lock is not setting automatically with my CSL elite PS4 wheel even If the SEN is set to AUTO, it remains to fixed value even if the specific car wheel lock changes.
    Am I missing something?

    Thanks.

    Hi Antonio, in my experience, rF2 can be a bit temperamental with this, but it should work. You might need to reset or reassign your control settings.
  • Hi,
    I am CSL Elite PS4 owner. Cant get rf2 work properly with my wheel.
    I hit detect - wheel get detected, remap all axis and buttons, put all recommended settings (from this thread) and go for driving Honda Civic BTCC.
    First impression is that FFB is reversed, the wheel pulls to the direction of turning. Ok I found how to reverse it and put "Steering effects strength":-10000, in the controller.json file. But then comes the other problem - the wheel pulls very hard to left or right. I mean it does not oscilate - it selects one direction and pulls to there - like the center point is not 0, but 360 degrees.

    Any help or advises please.

    what is actually (BRF User Preference) and (FEI) ? I dont see in the menu of the DD2?

    FEI: Force feedback intensity
  • what is actually (BRF User Preference) and (FEI) ? I dont see in the menu of the DD2?
    BRF would be the amount of force needed to reach 100% braking shown as a percentage of the maximum load (90kg on the ClubSport V3 pedals)if you had a loadcell brake pedal plugged into your base and I’m guessing whatever pedals you have are plugged directly into the computer. Also I think FEI only comes into play if you have a rim that has vibration motors in it like the ClubSport F1 LE and V2 type rims.
  • I see, thank you

    Did you ever figure this out? I have the same issue
