Best Gravel Settings for Logitech G29 / G920

Gravel is an intense off-road racing game made by the same developers who created Sébastien Loeb Rally EVO. You can feel there is a solid handling model underlying the physics, though it has obviously been adapted to work in an arcade game style. As a result, Gravel feels surprisingly good with a wheel.

For the Logitech G29 and G920, the force feedback isn't amazing, but it gives you enough information to comfortably control the car. There is very little customization available, so there are a few annoying vibration effects, but they don't detract much from the actual racing.

In this guide, I will show you the settings I've used in G HUB, if playing on PC, and in-game to improve the force feedback.

G HUB Settings

Gravel has a Soft Lock feature, so it will automatically set the proper steering angle for each car in the game. Set the rotation to 900° in G HUB and calibrate the wheel in-game.

Setting Value
Operating Range 900°
Sensitivity 50
Centering Spring Off

Gravel Settings

In Game Options > Controller > Wheel Settings > Steering Wheel Calibration:

Make sure to run the Steering Wheel Calibration. Oddly enough, the onscreen graphic won't match your real wheel's rotation (despite what the game says), but the number will be correct. Just ignore the graphic, the calibration is working fine. You only have to do this once.

In Game Options > Controller > Wheel Settings:

Setting Value
Steering Linearity 0
Steering Deadzone 0
Force Feedback Intensity 45
Vibration Intensity 40
Throttle Linearity 0
Throttle Deadzone 0
Brake Linearity 0
Brake Deadzone 0
Steering Angle Settings Automatic

Steering Linearity and Steering Deadzone should be left at 0 for linear steering.

Force Feedback Intensity is the main force you feel. It tends to be a jerky force with a lot of shaking based on the track surface. This will make the wheel very loud if set too high. Even at 45, the wheel can be louder than I like on certain tracks, yet it also makes the wheel feel lighter than I would like. If you don't mind the noise, you can raise this to make the wheel a little heavier.

Vibration Intensity controls several vibration effects. These seem to be mostly canned effects, rather than physics-based. The more important effects act to give you the feel of the suspension. Some of these feel like actual force feedback, rather than a vibration.

Steering Angle Settings should be set to Automatic to use the automatic Soft Lock.

In Race Options:

Setting Value
Braking Help Off
Auto Brakes Off
Stability Help Off

I recommend turning off all the driving assists in the Race Options. This will make the driving more dynamic and interesting. Even with everything disabled, the game is pretty forgiving.

You will find these in the menu before you start an event. These options are saved between events, so you only need to do this once.


Gravel completely flew under my radar. By the looks of it, I didn't think it would be the kind of game that would play well with a wheel. I was completely wrong; it's actually a lot of fun with one.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
