Ok just installed the game and hooked up my MOMO.

But i have a problem.

I cant seem to calibrate it right!

Either it wont steer at all in the game, or i have to crank the wheel WAY to much for it to even move.

Help?

Settings advice in game and out of game?

Have you installed the latest patch?:
http://community.codemasters.com/forum/showthread.php?t=294419

This is the 1.2 update, but it also contains the changes made by 1.1, and there were some things related to the usage of the wheels in the 1.1 patch:

Added support for Xinput wheel and Logitech Rumblepad 2, including default action map configurations.

Adding ability to use H-pattern shifter in custom configuration by allowing configuration of gears 1 to 6 and reverse. Same for boost.

Fix for missing Force feedback on Vista.

Added the ability to override the controller type, so that if the game fails to auto-detect it, users can specify it themselves.

Symptoms of the game failing to detect the appropriate controller type are:

On a pad, handling is too twitchy, appears to steer “lock-to-lock”.

On a wheel, the input lags and the linearity slider doesn’t appear to have an effect.

To override controller type, find the hardware_settings_config.xml that is generated when the game is run (should be in My Documents\Codemasters\GRID\hardwaresettings) and change the line that reads <input device_type="auto" /> to either <input device_type="pad” /> or <input device_type="wheel" /> as appropriate for your controller.

I don't have a wheel so I don't know if this works...
There may also be several other threads on this subject on codemaster's tech support forum:

EDIT: oops my bad, the first link is for the force feeback problem...it's not related to the handling issue with your wheel :(
