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.
Need for Speed: Carbon G27 Setup
- Open the Logitech Profiler
- Select New > Profile
- Add nfsc.exe as a new game.
- Open Specific Game Settings
- Check Report Combined Pedals
- Set Degrees of Rotation to taste
- Play Carbon and enter control options
- switch from keyboard to G27
- Map the controls to your liking (required)
Hey man! I have been trying to get my g27 working with carbon a long time! but thanks to you i now have it actually working! cause previous times if i tried to map all the control settings, it just scrolled down after i had mapped the gas pedal. thanks!
Glad to help!
wow nice artikel about g27 logitech, thanks for review g27 logitech, this is the best game racing simulator
I can’t set the six gear sequentiial?
How to set that it will work in the game?
I don’t know what you are talking about. If you follow my simple instructions, both the paddle shifters and H-shifter work great.
I’m trying to get my Logitech GT working with NFS Carbon. I can’t enter anything on the panel where it displays the various key settings. Please help. How do I update those defaults?
Sure, I just made that picture a few days ago.
Make sure that, like the picture above, it’s set to your Logitech wheel. It’s set on keyboard by default.
Then, after scrolling down to the field you want to change, you have to click on it and it will change color. Then you press the button/switch you want to assign it to.
Thanks for all of your help. I got my Logitech GT working on NFS Carbon. My problem is that the steering is much to sensitive and I keep running into the walls. Help PLEASE…
Me again. Thanks for your input. When I pull up the options menu it scrolls by itself to the bottom of the list of functions/buttons. It won’t let me change anything other than the very last entry.
Your pedals are set wrong, that’s why it scrolls on its own.
I’m really a newbie to racing, so how do I set the pedals? Is it done through Logitech Profiler? How do I launch the Profiler program? I’m running Windows 7. Thanks again…
I got the pedals to work now my steering wheel is all wacky. What settings do you use? In the games options won’t allow me to edit the functions. Any help is appreciated. Thanks…
Ah Thank You
I means The H-Shifter
By the way my email is ronmcconnell @ yahoo . com
I can now edit the options in NFS Carbon but the steering is still wacky. Help…
My pedals and steering wheel work fine in Dirt3, but steering is very erratic in NFS Carbon.
Scratch that nothing is working in Dirt3 either. I’ll keep trying various combinations until I get Dirt3 to work. I’m sure it’s in the Profiler, I think.
Wow what a roller coaster. Dirt3 is working great, changed the options in Dirt3 and voila it works great. Now I have to figure out how to make “NFS Carbon” to work. Thanks for y9ur help.
fala tudo de bom po muito legal este site me ajudou mesmo a jogar com o meu g27 acabei de compras um muito bom mesmo mas no momento estou com dificuldades pra jogar o nfs shift 2 tipo o volante nao esta respondendo na hora demora um pouco meio lento sabe e quando ele responde ja vai com tudo ja nao quer mas volta demora sabe e no reto ele fica pra la e pra ca nao dar pra controla vcs poderiam me ajudar por favor
Eu não falo Português
what do you Guys do with the neutral button since the H-shifter dont have one?
clutch has no effect?
I am trying to play with my g27 and everytime i set my first control such the accelrator , the game start scrolling down even if I unplug pedal and shifter ! whats the problem
Anthony, follow the settings and you wont have that issue. It’s also talked about in the comments above. Good luck
Go to Logitech profiler and set pedels to combined.
Wow so simple yet effective! Thanx!!
Heu, those who still have problems with that combined axis… do what is stated above AND INVERT BRAKE POLARITY. Go to options of brake – properties – invert polarity. It works ONLY WHEN RACING
Applying this and still having that scroll down problem, I feel like the pedal is somehow set to be working like the wheel… Anyone help? Does the same on nfs pro street and weirdly it works on my recent games (assetto corsa and such).
Somehow got fixed by checking a bunch of random stuff including the “keep this parameter exclusive to this game”, well guess that kinda help too.
I’m guessing it would be the same process with the G29?
Either way, I don’t have the different controller setting on my settings in NFS Carbon.
I cannot choose a wheel as controller type
Sorry this thread is pretty old so I haven’t kept up on the new Logitech hardware. Someone else might weigh in later
