I can do all of the above.

Try some tunes from my storefront, they are free. IMO my favorite ones are the A class 240, Alfa 155, I think there is a Foxbody mustang up there, some AE86's(same setup but different power levels). Also I have a good drift tune for the Vandura but I cant remember if its on my storefront

Or if you want I can just gift you the setups so you can actually look at them.

I am pretty sure the deadzones are just the default ones but I can check.

I have a ton of FM2/3/4 setups written down in a folder at home. Many times when I am starting a tune for a car I start with those, sometimes they translate well to FM4, sometimes not.

I think for the most part, drift tuning for controller vs wheel is pretty similar, but you use less extreme toe settings. Most of mine are +0.1-0.3 toe front, -0.1-0.3 rear.

Deadzones... I've set mine to feel much like my car (probably why i'm so bad).

But personally, just start practicing. Use the car garages to get used to your wheel. Then start building cars. Find one that fits you, and start fine tuning it.

Something I always do when I tune for wheel is make the front ride height one degree higher than the Rear.

No more than .3 toe in the front and no more than .2 in the rear.

I try to keep my ARB's soft and pretty close together, about 19.5 front and 18.5 rear (In a skyline)

I like to make my cars "Squat" so the Suspension in the rear is pretty soft and the front is about 200lbs up from that (Im not at my xbox right now so the figures may not be right)

As for deadzones mines are all 5 clicks from the end/start of the bar except for the very bottom ones I can't remember what I have them set at.

The whole start off in a low-powered car stuff sort of worked for me, The first car I used for a wheel was a Borrowed BNB S14 at the end of FM3 for a Competition.

If you need any tunes or anthing message me on xbox and I will send some.

Stick with 0 toe. I promise it will pay off.

I use default dead zones and you should use a car that's little to medium powered like an s chassis. About 400 ponies should do it. Go on benchmark and do donuts, manji, and figure 8s around the light poles to practice throttle control and counter steer. Minty suggests that you take a stock c6 around Tsukuba to get a feel for the wheel.
