Welcome to another article in our series: The Logitech G27 Racing Wheel for Casual Racing Gamers. In this article, you will learn how to configure your G27 racing wheel to play Need for Speed: Carbon.

NFS Carbon is the 10th game in the Need for Speed series, and was developed and published by Electronic Arts. The game is an arcade style street racer.

Even though Carbon is from 2006, that didn’t stop it from being able to support the G27. While it doesn’t have a nice preset like NFS Shift, it will easily recognize your wheel and allow you to map all the buttons to your own preference.

Unlike newer titles, Carbon does not have any FFB effect options. You can adjust these (if you want) in your Logitech game profile using ‘Special Force Feedback Device Settings.’

Keep in mind that mapping the controls is required. The pedal default mappings for the G27 are incorrect. You can check out my control options below to see how it should look afterward.
