Should be 1.000000.
Now I am using:
In Logitech drivers 100/100/100/Centering Spring should be somewhere
around 60 on my system.
In-game 50.0/50%.
So, iRacing made three mistakes:
- unlinearity
- locked in-game Damper
- messing up with "cockpitLookDeadZone".

Jesus Christ, it looks like they all (both in-game, and driver
sliders) have to be at the same level, except Overall (to whichever level
you like), and Centering Spring (should be 50%).
Something like this: Logitech driver 100/80/80/50, in-game 48.0/80%.
This iRacing's presentation of those sliders was very misleading. I
suppose that this is the reason why they cannot present 60.0. Because it is
very hard to devide 100% by 60.0.

Hm, this isn't right (again). Possibly -/50/50/50 in Logitech
drivers, and in-game adjust as you like (possibly those two sliders at the
same level). I'll see tomorow.
Centering Spring is 50% for sure.

Hm, crap, it looks like Centering Spring should be 0%, lol.
Actually, it looks like Logitech driver's setting and in-game
setting should blend in such a way that sum should be 100%.

Ok, now I am really close, lap times are excellent, and feeling is
good.
This is how it goes:
- Logitech drivers should be like this -/100/100/0
- in-game sliders don't have to be the same. Something like: Strength should
be in the upper part of scale, Damper should be at the lower part of scale.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, things are going well.
In-game Damper is a percentage of Strength.
So, lets say I like the amounth of Damper with settings 71%
(42.6)/71%. Now, with these settings I don't have enough Strength. If I
multiply 71 and 71, I get something like 5000. Now, if I want to rise
Strength to 80% I have to divide 5000 by 80, so, to maintain the same amount
of Damper, I have to use 80%/63%.
Of course , instead of Strength percentage you can use iRacing's
Strength numeration, the effect is the same.

Actually, I presume that 50% should be the correct amount od Damper
for max Strength (60.0).
This would say that for Strength of 55.0 the correct Damper would be
55%, for 50.0 the correct Damper would be 60%, and so on.
Interestingly, once the Damper was locked at 75%, and once the max
Strength was 40.0 (IIRC). This matches with this formula.

No, this is wrong.
Now I have Logitech drivers at the default (except "Allow game to
adjust settings" is not checked), in-game sliders are both at 78%.

Ok, some development.
In Logitech drivers, Overall, Damper and Spring have to be the same.
Now I am testing to determine how in-game sliders have to be in relation to
driver's sliders. From experience so far, I would be surprised if these also
don't have to be the same (at the same percentage).
So, all in all, it looks like you only have to find the strength at
which you like the FFB, put 5 sliders at that percentage, and adjust
Centering Spring. Oulton park is good track for adjusting Centering Spring.

Actually, now that everything is set, it looks like Centering Spring
should be 100%.
So, Centering Spring at 100%, and everything else (5 other sliders:
Overall, Spring, Damper, and in-game Spring and Damper) at the same
percentage.
