active through the device that is mapped to steering input.
LOGITECH (TM) WINGMAN FORMULA GP & LOGITECH MOMO FORCE WHEELS

Panel. Within Control Panel, double-click Game Controllers, select
your Logitech device, and click on Properties. Click on Settings within
the Properties window, and uncheck "Pedal reported as... Combined".

3. PATCH 242 KNOWN ISSUES
MICROSOFT (TM) RACING WHEEL PEDALS
Setting the pedals to split axis mode is not currently supported. From
the controler properties in the control panel select combined axis mode.
MICROSOFT (TM) RACING WHEEL VIBRATIONS
When using the Win98 drivers for the MS Sidewinder (TM) Force Feedback
wheel under Windows (TM) XP and Windows 2000, vibrations may not be present.
See documentation for your device to install the appropriate drivers.
Most racing wheels support device auto-centering. These forces can dampen
other forces such as collision and grip effects. It is suggested you turn
off or down these effects if you are not experiencing force feedback in
game play. See documentation for your particular device.
