Project CARS 2 (PS4) - Fanatec Recommended Settings

General Notes:

- The settings below are considered to be reasonable baseline values for Project CARS 2 (PS4). They might not suit all tastes and driving styles, but they are a good starting point. Bear in mind that Project CARS 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.

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

  • My ps4 podium wheel keeps disconnecting in project cars 2 every 10 secs. Works fine in gts. Any one have any ideas. When i go into options to try to change the wheel i can't make changes.

  • do you have the base in PS4 comp mode? PS4 mode is not working with PC2...

  • hey fanatec

    can we get an update for the csl elite for ps4 like for the DD2 base?

    so i can use my formula v2 wheel with the game?!?!?!?

  • What kind of update? DD2 is not compatible with PS4. And the formula v2 should work on any existing PS4 compatible base. Only issue not all buttons are supported due to a limitation on consoles...

  • Hi @Dominic

    Any chance that we get an update on recommended settings here now that several new values and LIN is suggested to be ON?

    Thanks! Loving the DD1

  • Hello @Dominic Brennan,

    CSL DD Pro is not recognized on PS4 (using GT Pro wheel). I have tried all of the compatibility profiles and it only says "controller disconnected".

    Hardware :

    - PS4 Pro-

    - Fanatec GT DD Pro Bundle (5nm)

    Is the GT DD Pro not compatible with Project Cars 2 on PS4? I tried it in PS4/5 mode. Here 

    the wheel doesn't work at all.

    In PS4 compatibility mode. The buttons and the stick for the menu control work. But the pedals 

    are not recognized and the game reports every few seconds that the controller has been disconnected.

    It would be a shame if that didn't work, that's the game I play the most and why I bought the Fanatec 

    and switched from my Logitech G29.

    It would be nice if there was a solution here.


  • Hey Sven, I run a PS4 standard with the GT DD Pro (plus Load Cell Brake) and had those issues to begin with but it eventually started working.

    I managed to do a firmware update and then the L2/R2 buttons started playing havoc in the tune up menus. After a reboot of the PS4, it seems to have settled down.

    Is your firmware up to date and have you calibrated it via the PC config application?

  • Ii had the same problem with disconnecting repeatedly.

    Quit the game and put the wheel base in to comparability mode (purple) and restart game.

    It works...yay ...only broblem is navaging the settings menu it keeps flicking from one option to another.

    Jumped in to a race had a big crash and oh my god the throttle vibration motor was going like the clappers and so was the brake :-)

    It sees the base as a CSL wheel base but works great

  • What wheel settings are people using for the GT DD Pro? Looking for a good base to tweak from

  • Hallo,
